Hollywood Jahilliya

Democracy, whiskey, sexy.

Location: Los Angeles, California, United States

I'm an old-school liberal, like FDR or, heck, even Trotsky if I'm feeling generous. That is, I recognize a fascist enemy when I see one, and I treat it like an enemy. It's my mission (self-appointed, of course) to convince other Hollywood liberals to do the same.

...And One For The Ladies

Iranian feminists marched yesterday for International Women's Day. The response from Ahmadnejad's regime is about what you'd expect:
Thousands of women gathered... in Student Park in central Tehran to celebrate Women's Day. They carried placards with slogans calling for equality, peace, resistance, and freedom.

As was predicted, the police and a militia group called Hezbollah attacked and beat them, using electric batons.

Hat tip: Norm Geras, who also links to this report from the National Council of Resistance of Iran. Opposing and changing this kind of regime requires international solidarity. Even if that means standing next to George Bush from time to time.
