There is a strange mix a-brewin' in America. The far Left and the Neo-Isolationist Right are combining to form a noxious brew. We saw the warning signs even before 9-11, when Pat Buchanan and Lenora Fulani working together hijacked the last remnants of the old United We Stand Party and turned it into a mangled mix of paleo-con anti-Semitism and hard-left sandal-thumping. But after 9-11, and certainly after the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq began, the trickle became a flood.
Hanson is absolutely correct in noting this convergence of anarchists, hard-left "peace" activists, hard-right racist and anti-Semite elements, and paleo-"libertarians" of the LewRockwell.com stripe. The anti-war protestors such as Cindy Sheehan and her merry band down at Camp Cindy have gained the "moral support" of David Duke, Stormfront, Al Sharpton, and "Rev." Fred Phelps. What sordid company: An ex-Grand Dragon of the KKK, a white supremacist racist group hoping for a coming race war, a charlatan "civil rights" leader responsible for the deaths of Jewish store owners and the defamation of police officers, and the leader of a one-family false church who thinks American soldiers are dying in Iraq because we don't stone gays to death.
Why would such a strange assortment come together? Sure it can't just be about the war in Iraq, can it?

Excellent read. A visible brownshirt/redshirt alliance might not be the worst thing from the viewpoint of our band of the spectrum, however. The usual commentariat on the left will find themselves in quite a bind when they start calling us Nazis or use related imagery, that's for sure.
