Okay, here's what I don't get about those who call white supremacists, neo-Nazis, etc leftist. Don't they deride the left for supporting multiculturalism. The above mentioned are a lot of things but promoters of multiculturalism they are not. This is typical No true Scotsman or in this case no true right winger.

re: #1 HappyWarrior

When you figure it out let me know. Also, let me know why the right wing base considers it racist to point out racism these days.

Heck I even saw a post over there asserting that neo-Nazis and Muslims work hand in hand. Apparently critical thinking is not among their skills.

I'm not entirely sure that they even believe their own words. They're desperately fumbling around for anything - He was a leftist! It's an Obama/CAIR conspiracy! - to ward off that horrible moment of self-reflection. I suspect they know, deep down, that the wingnut right has a white supremacist problem, but they're not willing to acknowledge it.

Who would believe such nonsense, except Rightwingers? I think it's pretty clear that Hitler/Nazis/Fascists were Rightwing. I have no problem condemning extreme leftists, i.e., Eastern bloc/Cuban communists. Not sure why Rightwingers can't just condemn the extremists on their side and be done with it.

Because they want to associate all evil with the other side and think they are the Army of the Just, with their enemies the Host of the Damned. It's an old, and very human, problem.
