  3AM Non-Fiction - THE PSYCHOPATHOLOGY OF THE RIGHTWING MIND
From this perspective, it seems possible that rightwing politics, and its corresponding moral assumptions, could be described primarily as an expression of personality, rather than a cluster of ideas, some of which happen to be untenable.
Despite the moralising tone of rightwing evangelism, the solipsistic outlook such evangelism defends is itself at odds with notions of morality, since morality is, by definition, based on empathy and reciprocation.
The rightwing columnist Melanie Phillips is a prime example of a personality gorged on a diet of untested assumptions, intolerance of ambiguity and dogmatic moral absolutes.

Since the rightwing acts of violence of Hoyerswerde, Hunxe, Rostock-Lichtenhagen, Molln and Solingen, a certain affirmation of the racism term has occurred in Germany that is common internationally as a technical term but was regarded in Germany for decades as polemically exaggerated.
Rightwing extremism, racism and violence are by no means merely "backwoods" reactions of affected or disadvantaged groups to globalization-, neoliberal modernization- and social marginalization processes.

The rightwing that was chased from the elective corridors of the Islamic Republic eight years ago has come back with a landslide victory.
Assuming that all of the votes cast for the other rightwing candidates in the first round went to Ahmadinejad in the runoff; he still had to attract an additional five million reform and progressive votes to end up with a seven million winning margin in the final tally.
Pubic distaste for a lethargic reform, the lower class economic concerns and their disgust for corrupt politicians, a nationalist surge against perceived unfair international pressures on nuclear technology along with Ahmadinejad’s genius as a communicator and his organizational savvy among the factors that could partially explain the Tehran surprise of 2005.

 The Rightwing Movement, Second Amendment, Gun Control
The rightwing movement is more than the narrow obsession of Religious Right Clinton haters, Democrat haters, or some other haters fed by malignant suggestions and generous financing from Richard Mellon Scaife, the foremost of the rightwing "conspirators." It has developed outside of the political parties and advances over a broad, well-financed front.
The rightwing movement started in the 1930s, weakly to be sure, and is a response to those changes in public policy.
The rightwing movement's biggest problems are that its intellectual foundations are not independently viable without enormous rightwing funding and that the great majority of the American people do not reject the modern state and do not share the extreme individualist agenda, the economic agenda, the fundamentalist moral agenda or the passions that motivate them.

 Welcome to the Right Wing Lies w
The danger is made much worse by the fact that George Bush, Dick Cheney, and their advisors are committed to establishing a "unitary executive" -- a system in which the President has unassailable power; in which the President ignores the Congress and the Courts; in short, a dictatorship.
When faced with an enemy that is as dangerous as the radical reactionary rightwing, decent people can no longer fight with both hands tied behind us.
George Bush's claim to be a "uniter, not a divider" is one of their biggest lies -- the radical reactionaries of the right play upon fear and division.

 The Rightwing's War on the Public Schools | TPMCafe   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-05)
But the raw fact is that the public has consistently rejected their initiatives when they've come to a vote-- every time the voters have faced ballot initiatives on the issue, they have overwhelmingly rejected them by a cumulative 68% to 32% margin in the 12 ballot initiatives from 1970 to 2000.
The newest privatization innovations are virtual schools, where private companies often manage the curriculum for children being schooled at home—with about half the states having created some version of virtual schools, and new or expanded programs being proposed in legislatures across the country.
While these facts are unlikely to change the minds of rightwing legislators looking to hand out slices of the education spending pie to their corporate sponsors, progressive legislators can use them to stand up against the privatization agenda and push for the education reforms that really help children learn:

 ZNet |Japan | The Japanese Rightwing's Contrived Hysteria
But in the media and among ambitious rightwing politicians such as Deputy Secretary General Abe Shinzo, the scenarios said to be needed to counter North Korea's "insincerity" range from national mobilization and preventive attack to obtaining the nuclear arms and rockets needed to counter North Korea's alleged military threat if sanctions are imposed.
Nowhere is there mention of Japan's far greater "insincerity" in refusing apologies or compensation for once having forced hundreds of thousands of Koreans to work in Japan, or in refusing any study of the bones recently found of people, probably Chinese and Koreans, who perished in a wartime Tokyo vivisection camp.
Its problem is the way the shrine also honors the 14 former Japanese leaders convicted and executed for instigating a war that led not just to a 3 million Japanese dead but also to an estimated 20 million Chinese war dead.

 Scoop: Bernard Weiner: Secret Rightwing Agenda Unearthed
But many younger members of our "vast rightwing conspiracy" don't know enough of where they came from -- and besides, it never hurts to hear the good stories again.
Liberals had been in control of most of America's public institutions since the 1930s -- the media, the courts, the Congress, academia, and, with a few exceptions (the diluted liberalism of Eisenhower and Nixon), the White House -- and their proto-socialist philosophy effectively was the dominant mode of thought of the country for decades.
But, as the imperial foreign wars grind on, for no good reason -- with thousands more dying and being maimed -- and as more and more popular social programs are decimated or eliminated, a good many Bush voters are finally coming to realize that maybe they made a bad mistake in November of 2004.
