Heard on my way to work today – Network news break;
“Boston bombers blah blah blah Religious Right blah blah bombers blah blah Chechnya blah blah blah Far Right.”
As always, Progressives refer to all icons of evil as “The Far Right” or the “Religious Right”. That was the sole purpose of the “report”.
Back in junior high school in the 1970s I was taught the same thing, only then it was (and usually still is) that the Nazis were “Far Right”. Never mind that they referred to themselves as national socialists, and were inspired by the American Progressives and the Eugenics movement. Oh, and they were pretty tight with the Middle Eastern Muslims.
Yeah, so we’re to believe that the more you advocate freedom, the more you support the American founding principles of liberty, the more you support the concept of minimum government and maximum individual responsibility, the closer you get to Nazis and Islamofascists. Stupid as that is, there are those who believe it. And so they keep beating that drum.
As expected, the report did not contain the word “Islam” or the word “Islamist” or “jihad” or anything similar. They were so upset that, yet again, the perpetrator was not a teapartier, they went ahead and made the connection anyway. As usual also; they did it with innuendo. Just plant the little seed and watch it grow.
