When this column observed last month that contemporary feminism is a totalitarian ideology, we drew a bit of mockery from certain quarters on the left. Yet as if to illustrate our point, three prominent septuagenarian feminists - Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan and Gloria Steinem, co-founders of the Women's Media Center - joined forces over the weekend to demand the suppression of speech they dislike.

We suppose we should mention that we don't care for Limbaugh's term "feminazi" either. While there's no denying its euphony - and euphony counts for a lot in radio - feminism is fundamentally different from National Socialism in that the latter is based on a theory of racial supremacy while the former is based on a false theory of equality.

That said, you have to marvel at Fonda, Morgan and Steinem's chutzpah in comparing Limbaugh to Goebbels and then, in the very next sentence, denouncing him for using a Nazi analogy. The technical term for this sort of thing is "comedy gold."

Unfortunately, feminists have no sense of humor and wouldn't recognize comedy if it held the door open for them.

In all fairness Limbaugh has never taken credit for the term "feminazi," attributing it to Tom Hazlett.

The "comedy gold" in that case being that he did so in a chapter of his book decrying the use of name-calling as anathema to reasonable discourse.
