    Why do so many in the US call the left Communists and the right Nazis?

    Is it ignorance?

    Is it stupidity?

    Is it parroting what they've heard elsewhere?

    Or, do they do it just to rile up the other side?

    Critical thinking is a lot of work, it's easier to dwmagogue somebody.

    Take a close look at the stated objective and goals of the Occupy movement, for example, and then look at whom in the political Left in the Nation supports it.

    Freedom isn't free, and is always one generation away from extinction.

    There are many reasons.

    Some just like name calling to deflect.

    Some people actually are communists and nazis.

    I know we have National Socialist/Nazis and Communists in this country, but do people really believe Romney is a Nazi or that President Obama is a Communist?

    They do it becuase they are told to do it to prevent them from seeing the real truth.
