Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

The Berkeley City Council and Anti-Immigration Conservatives

The Berkeley City Council recently voted that military recruiters are “uninvited and unwelcome intruders.” Eugene Volokh commented:

Oddly enough, in pretty much every city I've lived, I've been "uninvited" by the city council or any other organization representing the city. Nor would I have felt I was doing something rude or otherwise bad if the city council has announced that I was "unwelcome."
That's my reaction to anti-immigration conservatives.

Hmmm… Nativists are one of the few reasons why the leftist claim that conservatives have retained more of early 20th-century fascism than liberals actually makes sense. Would the similarity of the Berkeley vote to nativism mean that there is such a thing as Liberal Fascism after all?
