    I've long been saying -- it's both ends against the middle.

    Are you under the mistaken impression that this study refers only to extremism on the right?

    What would you call someone, exactly, who believes that George W. Bush was behind 9/11? I don't consider it slander.

    What's wrong with extremism? I'm an extremist and proud.

    Re: Is Extremism Becoming Mainstream?

    Reminds me of a South Park episode...

    Cartman: Kyle, why are you so afraid of the truth?!

    Kyle: Because anybody who thinks 9/11 was a conspiracy is a retard!

    Cartman: Oh really? Well did you know that over one-fourth of people in America think that 9/11 was a conspiracy? Are you saying that one-fourth of Americans are retards?

    Kyle: Yes. I'm saying one-fourth of Americans are retards.

    Stan: Yeah, at least one-fourth.

    Re: Is Extremism Becoming Mainstream?

    Extremism has always existed in abundance. The Know-Nothings, the Klu Klux Klan, the New Age movements of the 60s, etc. Nothing has changed except popular interpretations are becoming more developed and intellectualized, which always occurs when the dissemination of knowledge is occurring at a faster rate. The Internet changed everything.
