‘How To Have Fun With Radical Activists’
The Southern Poverty Law Center’s summer 2012 report on the “30 New Activists Heading Up the Radical Right” gave me a great idea for a new game show. It’s called “Which Radical Right Wing Activist Is It?”
Sounds really fun, right?
Try it out with this sample question:
Which radical right wing activist (because apparently these two people can be classified as “radical right-wing”) is this quote from — New Black Panther Party leader Malik Zulu Shabazz or historian David Barton?
“America should be glad that every black man is not on a killing spree for all the suffering they [white Americans] have done.”
Tough one, isn’t it?
I’d have picked another name than “David Barton” for this exercise, but you get the idea…
PS: The geniuses at the $PLC have David Duke and Pamela Geller on the same list.
And yes, they consider a Black Panther “right wing.”
