I note that Norway killer Breivik’s clenched-fist Communist salute is universally being described in the media as “Right wing”. Right wing Communism? It has been the Communist salute for around a century and Leftist journalists would be well aware of that. They have probably even seen examples of it at Leftist rallies in the USA in recent times. But for the media white can be black if it can be used to discredit conservatives

There is NO Right-wing salute. Both the Communist and the Fascist salutes are Leftist. The man who invented the Fasicist salute — Mussolini — was a prominent Marxist theoretician. And if Hitler’s socialist worker’s party (NSDAP) was Right wing, it sure was a strange socialist worker’s party. More on that here
