Where? I see no such groups.
They hover in the minds and imagination of the 30 million or so. True, David Duke and his ilk have seen little light of day, but the Proud Boys have, and have been literally endorsed by Trump. But really, not this. One has to think of a mentality that is not radicalized over night, but over four years, and then over time. Huge turn outs showing support for the overturning the election. 73% Trump voters think the incumbent was the victor, which means they support opposition to the Supreme Court decision. Don't look for the physical presence of brown shirts, and I do think once people get back to work somewhere around mid 2021, this may largely blow over. But smoldering in its wake is a radical new right whose presence is the media. Read about how Joseph Goebbels rose to power. Conservatives want this, and there is nothing in the greed and/or ignorance that has always been the hallmark of their thinking to put them straight. They don't watch CNN or MSNBC, and they don't' read the Washington Post or the NY Times.
Can you give the names of these dread "conservatives"? I need to know, so I can check out just how "radical" they actually are. If they're ordinary centrists, like ordinary Republicans, I don't think you have an example there. We need something actually threatening...dangerous...not tame and centrist, and operating within ordinary democratic parameters. You know...something like those extreme Leftist parties you mentioned...the KKK, the Nazis....you know the type: some militant group, significant, powerful, vocal, influential...the kind of thing we can find in the news, or one that has some political leverage we can identify...something that could actually pose a significant danger.
You are looking for the the actual material result of a current trend, and it misses the point. It is NOT the nazis, the kkk : it is the media. it's social networking and propaganda strategies Trump demonstrated clearly to be effective. The neo nazis and the rest love this and they have an IMPLICIT voice in this growing intolerance for difference and fascist proclivities. Iff you want a significant, powerful vehicle of prapoganda, just tune in to FOX "news" and listen Lou Dobbes. There are many of his kind out there.
Well, Trump is a leftover Democrat, as you know; any change in that is certainly recent. And half the American public voted for him, at least... So which policies of his make him a horrible, nasty, evil "conservative" of the kind to cause you trembling?
No, Trump is not a leftover democrat, or anything else, for that matter. He is not intelligent enough to have an ideology and would dismiss out of hand if thinking intrudes on profit. I don't know what you're looking for, or, to think you have to look is absurd. Just recall all that has transpired: Go here, and remember, conservatives wanted this man to continue another 4 years: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions ... on-points/
Really? The Left has total dominance at ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, control of the internet, Twitter, Facebook, Google and a host of other such media, and you're cringing in fear because something called "Newsmax" is allegedly "rising"?
I'm sorry, O: I just don't think that's remotely plausible.
But how do we define left? By its opposition. Trump and media (FOX, et al) has radicalized the right (70% republicans think the Supreme Court got it wrong), thereby redefining centrist views as left. I don't want to spend the time going over ALL the details. Suffice it to say, just watch the "leftist" thinking of CNN, and if this is what you call leftist, then you have fallen for the specious realignment of political thinking. The case is too stark to bother to defend. Notice how easily your saying Twitter and rest are controlled by the Left: it is no doubt because a line is drawn when, say, Alex Jones spreads extraordinary and despicable lies. What you might call leftist pressure to censor Jones certainly IS coming from the left, but as I said, this left is a realigned left by right extremism. Not long ago, such things as Jones produces would have been condemned out of hand by both parties.
