While speaking at the 'Values Voter Summit', Right-wing extremist Gary Bauer referred to the 'left' as 'the Taliban' according to Right Wing Watch. Ironically, many of those who attended this summit would love nothing more than for the U.S. government to resemble the theocratic autocracy in Afghanistan.
“We’re also seeing the left now turn into an American Taliban declaring war on our monuments,” he said. “It didn’t start with Southern memorials, it started with the Ten Commandments. In the last couple of decades, we’ve see left-wing groups file lawsuits all over America forcing Ten Commandments plaques and monuments to be taken down from courthouses and schools in state after state after state.”
