John McLaughlin attacks Congress for “fascist behavior” 

John McLaughlin had this to say about the WWII Memorial May 25,2001, on his show, the McLaughlin Group:

“In fact, your point is well taken, because all further proceedings to challenge the future location of the Memorial and its design – and to try to modify or check the oversight of the Memorial is forbidden under law, which sounds fascist.”

He was agreeing with Eleanor Clift of Newsweek who had said, “And the way that this Congress has muscled through this legislation is a dishonor to the people who fought in that war.”

John McLaughlin later repeated: “…I have a real problem with the fascist behavior of the United States Congress in this regard, cutting off all discussion, all oversight review, by bringing a legal suit, for example, or whatever.”
