    If you read the list of groups, and follow the news, you will notice that many of these have now or in the past, had ties with the local or national republican party. A few examples: Concerned Women for America, Family Research Council, Family Research Institute and Traditional Values Coalition.

    Come on all you republican apologists, I am sure you can find a way to deny it all. Make it sound plausible, and blame it all on Obama.

    Just to gain perspective here; if nazi groups formally stated they were aligned with the Liberal Party does that mean the liberal party is to blame?

    No political party screens its member in this way, I think.

    http://www.businessinsider.com/the-simpsons-fox-news-racist-2010-11Last night the show dubbed Fox News "Not racist, but #1 with racists" -- just the beginning of an episode littered with anti-Fox News/GOP innuendo.

    Replace racist with homophobic, and Fox News with GOP.

    Right, it would be like saying that whatever party the black panthers support then that party must be racist.

    IF, IF, IF.
    What a BS comment.
    The FACT is that Nazi groups DO NOT align with the Dems, and are more prone to side with the Repubs IF they side with any political party.
    Skinheads are NOT liberals.
    That's BS.
    And IF's do not count.
    FACTS do.
    And the FACT is that the Republican party has a long and clear history of siding with the anti-gay ACTIVIST religious right against the interests of gay Americans.
    ANYONE who denies that TRUTH is FULL OF SHIT.

    Rickrick, I think extremists invade parties that they agree with.

    I assume you are not familiar with these groups, nor the US Republican party leadership. These are not just a bunch of far out wacko groups (but they are far right). They are recognized, courted and encouraged by the Republican party leadership and much of the membership. In fact Republican Senators, Representatives and party leaders actively solicit their support. They show up at their conventions, give speeches, invite them to their Congressional offices, and when Bush was in the White House, he invited them over for numerous meetings. No, the Republicans can, and should be, known for the groups they align themselves with. This is the face of modern American religious conservatism in 2010 and its stranglehold on the Republican party.

    And the US Republican party has courted these extremist groups for the political advantage to be derived from them, as Outdoormutt notes.

    And frankly, I see both Republicans & extremist groups as sharing similar views and goals, and are thus natural allies. If they weren't, then what ARE all those Republican officeholders doing, making personal appearances with these groups and supporting their anti-gay agendas with legislation?
