The Myth of the Right-Wing "Extremist"

As well demonstrated in this piece from AltRight.com, the existence of a well organized and ever-present "right-wing, extremist" bogeyman is manifest almost exclusively in the imagination of the Anglo-sphere.

(Anglo-sphere: Countries where English is the native language. For my fellow intelligence community members, "FVEY".)

An excerpt that captures the idea:

"The myth is built on a foundation of disingenuousness and moral perversion. Ever-amplified, the myth of right wing extremism is regularly and artificially boosted by government and media, while violence arising directly from leftist terrorists, or indirectly from leftist pet projects such as mass immigration, prompts only silence, evasion, or logically gymnastic apologia. Even a cursory glance at the statistics reveals a stunning neglect of the Leftist threat historically and in contemporary contexts. According to a 2001 report commissioned by the US Department of Energy, Leftist extremists were "responsible for three-fourths of the officially designated acts of terrorism in America in the 1980's. From an international perspective, of the 13,858 people who died between 1988 and 1998 in attacks committed by the 10 most active terrorist groups in the world, 74 percent were killed by Leftist organizations."


  1. Right/Left is an obsolete paradigm. Most people defy stereotypes, such as Paul Craig Roberts or those who love the land yet despise illegals, such as was Edward Abbey.
    There exist racial extremists, such as Black Lives Matter and a few so-called Klansmen. There are 'religious' extremists such as Black Muslims and White Identity folk.
    Largely though, you are correct in that the great majority of violence is directed against whites, non-whites apparently, if we are to believe the Government's own statistics, far more prone to acts of violence.

    1. This is true, left and right is far too simple. A two axis spectrum (at least) is needed to accurately place a specific ideological point. But in this case, the case of the continuing violence we see, it seems sufficient to take whatever continuum we want to use and slice it right down the middle, dividing it into two pieces, one piece with all of the different "lefts" and one piece with all of the different "rights", to discover that a vast majority of the violence seem to be coming from one of those two sides.
