Yeah I know it's old hat and they are years old repeats but I'm watching the one about the American Survivalists who just happen to be BBC listed right wing. Now the one family that LT stayed with were perfect Mien Hosts with the Mexican wife cooking traditional meals while the man of the house was getting up at stupid o'clock to check out the neighbourhood for signs of government interverence (sp) He chose his way of live because of govenment interverence (that sp again) but in this instance it was raiding his daughters bank balance being raided for the grand total of $12 dollars. I am assuming there is more to it than that but whatever.

LT spent time with this family who were building a home and life for themselves that wasn't and isn't hurting anyone else. The programme tried it's best to rubbish this family and interviewed other people who were completely round the bend with views of Hitler was misunderstood and such like that the original family completely distanced themselves from and finally TL accepted that they were not apart of the right wing nut nut brigade.

My question is, why do the general press and media lable people who practice survival or self presavation as being right wing maniacs.
