So it's the 40th anniversary of Woodstock  
and I was listening to a segment on NPR about it. The organizer said (paraphrased), "It wasn't all peace, love, and music. I was attacked at gunpoint by some guy who called me a 'hippie fascist', and the touring manager of Crosby, Stills and Nash saved my life by jumping him."

Isn't "hippie fascist" a contradiction in terms?

That didn't stop people from saying it.

Still doesn't. Though now it's "Liberal Fascism". *snort* There's a reason why this guy's nickname is Doughy Pantload.

Not when you're a nut.

Certainly "fascist" and quite likely "hippie" is simply synonymous with "person I disapprove of." "Socialist," "communist," and "capitalist" are typically used the same way.
