Fashionable Dominic Hilton

If you do a Google search on "fashionable", Dominic Hilton is up at the top, ahead of the shoes and walking sticks.

His article on fashionable anti-Americanism has been causing quite a stir around the web – for example, here, here, and here - not to mention in openDemocracy's own forums, where some of his harshest critics are to be found:

"While it's hard for everyone to agree on the best of what's been thought and said in a given culture, it seems Hilton would prefer us all to wear Mickey Mouse T-shirts, eat at Mickey D's, and call Irish people Mics..."

"There seems to be a parallel between "Anti-Americanism" and "Islamophobia". Though it is undeniable that both exist, more often than not they are simply phrases trotted out by individuals who cannot tolerate criticism of their way of life, and seek to shut down critical debate."

The "Politically Incorrect Guide to American History" is catching up with him in popularity.
