(Anybody who still thinks that Banana Man is a deep-cover liberal and/or atheist should stop making that argument now.)

17It's finally happened; Dennis Prager drops the pseudo-intellectual guise and goes full wingnut, by declaring tolerance promoted by the "left" to be a slippery slope to fascism. Literally, fascism.
