Leah Says:

To be fair, here is what they say about leftwing extremism:
A movement of groups or individuals that
embraces anticapitalist, Communist, or Socialist doctrines and seeks to bring about change through violent revolution rather than through established political processes. The term also refers to leftwing, single-issue extremist movements that are dedicated to causes such as environmentalism, opposition to war, and the rights of animals. (also: far left, extreme left)

Note::The rightwing extremism said nothing about going through proper political processes. Why?

I just tried to go to this link again, and it says the server is faulty, or something like that. Wonder what's being covered up here!?
