1. <u>Support for fascists,</u> both in America (see: Pat Buchanan, Robert Stacy McCain, etc.) and in Europe (see: Vlaams Belang, BNP, SIOE, Pat Buchanan, etc.)

2. <u>Support for bigotry, hatred, and white supremacism </u>(see: Pat Buchanan, Ann Coulter, Robert Stacy McCain, Lew Rockwell, etc.)

3.<u> Support for throwing women back into the Dark Ages, </u>and general religious fanaticism (see: Operation Rescue, anti-abortion groups, James Dobson, Pat Robertson, Tony Perkins, the entire religious right, etc.)

4. <u>Support for anti-science bad craziness</u> (see: creationism, climate change denialism, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, James Inhofe, etc.)

5. <u>Support for homophobic bigotry</u> (see: Sarah Palin, Dobson, the entire religious right, etc.)

6.<u> Support for anti-government lunacy</u> (see: tea parties, militias, Fox News, Glenn Beck, etc.)

7. <u>Support for conspiracy theories and hate speech (see: Alex Jones, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Birthers, creationists, climate deniers, etc.</u>)

8. <u>A right-wing blogosphere that is almost universally dominated by raging hate speech </u>(see: Hot Air, Free Republic, Ace of Spades, etc.)

9. <u>Anti-Islamic bigotry that goes far beyond simply criticizing radical Islam, into support for fascism, violence, and genocide </u>(see: Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, etc.)

10. <u>Hatred for President Obama that goes far beyond simply criticizing his policies, into racism, hate speech, and bizarre conspiracy theories (see: witch doctor pictures, tea parties, Birthers, Michelle Malkin, Fox News, World Net Daily, Newsmax, and every other right wing source</u>)

<span style='font-size: 20pt'><u>And much, much more.</u> The American right wing has gone off the rails, into the bushes, and off the cliff.</span>

All true. This man is only one of many who will be pulling away from the dangerous RW unamerican hatespeak which has become the hallmark of the Republican Party.

Their leaders on The Hill, have proven themselves no better than their radical, dangerous fringe. Failing to speak out against their nutcases, makes them all part of the program.

I never visited this site before though I have heard it occasionally quoted. They do seem to represent the 'moderate' wing of the Republican Party and there would be no surprise when conservatives seem to be finding their voice that the moderates would like to maintain their position even if that means badmouthing the competition.

The probably couldn't say enough good things about losers like GHWB or his son or McCain or Dole. Maybe its time for the losers to step aside and stop eating their young.

Odd that he would site for his reasons, all the radical right. Most of the right is not that far to the right. That might explain why most independents are abandoning Obama for the republicans. Obama is way out on the left.

The extremes on both sides rarely represent any majority.

Q, interesting take....I see some of that stuff here.....
And that reminds me...I haven't seen the good folks on the other side of the aisle here....pull up a quote from neither Ann, nor Rush, to validate/support their own ideas to free Amerika from all
socialist organizations like the Democrats, liberals ,Knights of Columbus, the 4-H club, the Harvard Glee club, CYO...
******* and while looking up William Dubois.....I ran across this:
Wow, say it ain't so.........Honest Abe....a card carrying member, and old Sen. Joe never brought him up before the HUAC?
