A right-wing extremist is a right-wing extremist

Doesn't seem to matter if we're talking about some Taliban true believer or these bozos at Repent Amarillo. And just to drive the point home, Charles notes that their slogan "Army of God" is roughly the equivalent of the term Hezbollah. Or as Pharyngula notes:
"Repent or perish" is their message. They show up dressed in army fatigues, carrying bullhorns, with ghetto blasters blaring Christian music, and they write down license plate numbers and photograph people doing anything they disapprove of. They are our American Mutawwa'in, petty tyrants of propriety with a bloated sense of their own importance. They are our self-righteous wanna-be oppressors.
