Left = Right

Being by nature a centre-left voter I don't have much time for most of Bush's domestic policies. However neither have I been impressed with the hysterical quality of much of the criticism of him coming from the Left.

Left-wing hate sites such as Atrios, Cursor and Common Dreams display all the liberalism and tolerance of the extremist right.

So its reassuring to see this piece in The Guardian:

Why Iraqi rebels are not freedom fighters.

The planned disruption of the Republican convention in New York by the so-called Left is a prime example of a nasty fascist streak running through opponents of Bush. There were no massed ranks of the Christian Right threatening to disrupt the Democrat convention.
