Over at the Locker Room, in a post about (you guessed it) how the libruhls hate the constitution, Jon Ham describes the Klan as "wackos on the right."
Now, being a lefty myself, I wouldn't have called the Klan a right wing group. I might have thought it, but I wouldn't consider it fair to describe racism and xenophobia as conservative values. Just because it has been the left in this country who has been responsible for fracturing and marginalizing this particular hate group doesn't make the group itself part of the "right" (any more than a plumber who happens to be a Democrat converts a grease clog in to a Republican).
Anyway, thanks Jon for clearing that up for me. And as to the constitutional question, the First Amendment doesn't preclude a community from considering potential legal means for enforcing community standards; it just provides a stopping point when it comes to speech. It seems that in this case, the stopping point once reached was respected. So Jon, you can probably lay off the hand-wringing.
