A mystery? Nah...

The ways of class struggle, like the ways of You Know Who, are mysterious. So mysterious that frequently, as it is exceedingly well shown by Terry Glavin here, people who are (class struggle wise, that is) supposed to hate and fight each other the most, suddenly discover that for quite some time they are fighting the same political enemy shoulder to shoulder.

Of course, telling them about it is a suicidal idea: supra-lefties and ultra-righties hate nothing more than a sudden realization that in fact they are not that different. But here is the stark unadorned truth...

Could it be because both wings are batshit-crazy?
