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."
