Using the "F" word

On the fantasy world of the political left, "fascist" is still considered to be the exclusive preserve of white skinheads, members of ethnic minorities cannot be fascist as they are oppressed. So when both John Reid and George W Bush used the "F" word to describe Islamic fundamentalists, there were predictable howls of protest.

There is an excellent article by Janet Daley relating to this in the Daily Telegraph.
