All singing from the same choir-book...

Yesterday I was listening to NPR on the way home from work and there was a show about inflammatory speech coming from right wing pundits. That is fine, par for the course: Back when President Bush was being compared to Hitler, they had a show which dissected the pathology of the left-wing flamethrowers. Right? No. Actually, they had lots of shows where the left wing flamethrower was an honored guest of the show.

Then, today this comes to light:

Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment

From the US Dept of Homeland Security.

Ah, this is rich. The folks who could never call people who fly airplanes into office towers terrorists without feeling a little icky, now are all too happy to use the term on their political opponents.
