Quote of the Century

"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross" - Sinclair Lewis.

The quote is a lie which is typical of the left and has been misattributed to Lewis. It most likely originated as a partial quote by James Waterman Wise, Jr., as reported in a 1936 issue of The Christian Century that “in a recent address here before the liberal John Reed club said that Hearst and Coughlin are the two chief exponents of fascism in America. If fascism comes, he added, it will not be identified with any "shirt" movement, nor with an "insignia," but it will probably be "wrapped up in the American flag and heralded as a plea for liberty and preservation of the constitution."

I don't see anything "cross"ish in that remark at all, but then again, I'm not a leftie.
