    A significant aspect of the scapegoating rhetoric common to right-wing nativist movements—rhetoric that is almost wholly structured around building outrage and anger in their audience and overwhelming rationality—is a kind of competitive escalation
    So true. In the modern Republican Party the more irrational one gets the louder the cheers from the base become. The "centrists" become extreme and the extremists go completely off the edge.

        The extreme right which rejects climate change, thinks the earth is 6000 years old, often calls for secession, and wants to decrease Mitts taxes currently owns the Republican Party.

        The extreme left currently consists of 3 aging Marxists in a basement in Perth Amboy.

          And then there's leftists that are just histrionic rageaholics, which get mistaken for people for people with an ideology.

            Well, you are talking of behavior, while Im referring to policies and positions. Yes indeed there are some angry moderates among us I suppose, tho I am not so concerned about them as I am about those who would like to send us back a few centuries, who are opposed to science, equal rights, etc.
