Meet My Left Wing
With the paranoid right-wing whining because of the Homeland Security Department report warning of extremism on their side, you’d think they are being singled out for their views. But in April 2001, the Department of Energy put out a report, “Left-Wing Extremism: The Current Threat.” More recently, on January 26, 2009, Homeland Security issued “Left Wing Extremists Likely To Increase Use Of Cyber Attacks over the Coming Decade.” Yet, I don’t recall alarmism on the left as a result of these releases. In fact this Think Progress post is the first time I’ve heard about them.
And, while we’re at it, why is the right wing offended by the term “right wing”? I’ll be happy to state that I’m a left-winger. I proudly display my left wing, above. I’m also left-handed and right-brained, and those terms don’t offend me, either.Click here for reuse options!
