The Fascist Threat From the Radical Right

Click on the images below to read the distortions purposely spread virus-like by the uber Right wing nutjobs, aided and abetted by Fox News, Limbaugh, Ann Coulter (right) et al.

These are the same folks who promoted the anti-American Tea Parties last week.

The above e-mail was circulating last week from the Conservative Book Club folks. It's actually a promotion for Human Events magazine, but check out the narrative.

It actually almost perfectly encapsulates the emerging narrative for mainstream conservatives, like a handy set of talking points all put together in one place.

The relationship between this kind of rhetoric and the even crazier talk coming from the radical right is inescapable. Because unlike the armchair right-wing pundits who indulge this stuff because it's a useful way to bestir the troops but couldn't act to save their asses, some of these other people, the radicals who hear this talk and then pump the irrationality even farther, to its illogical extreme. Thees people, and Crapaud doesn't say Thees People often, will fan the flames of radical right wingery and the full weight of responsibility for the next right wing terrorist attacks on America will be theirs.

And to listen to them talk, they are primed for action -- the irresponsible wingnuttery of the mainstream right can come to no good for our beloved country.
