  •  A Marxist professor I had (10+ / 0-)

    when I went back to college at nights in the 1980s, George Rawick, told me once that flipping former KKKers to the radical left was sometimes more easy that others because they knew something was deeply wrong but blamed the wrong people.  I have come to believe that he was wrong.   Maybe once in while, but right wing populism is the softer version of fascism, the building block.   National Socialism was built on similar views.  Remember the slogan set over teh entrances of Nazi concentration camps: Arbeit macht frei(Work will set you free).  The whole idea of "parasites" underlies the mindset.  

    The words are an echo of left-wing critiques, and as you say, sometimes even the loons get it right for the wrong reasons, but I don't think one can reach these people.
