It's Not Easy Being Lefty

While I typically find extreme activists on both ends of the political spectrum to be, at best, annoyingly cute but rarely informative (god, everything was so very black-and-white when I was younger too!), Mr. Fleming [Letters, August 26] and the rest of his ilk need to be aware of, or at least acknowledge, one very glaring difference between activists on the left and right: groups such as [ProtestWarrior] haven't been infiltrated by the FBI, weren't subjected to preemptive arrests prior to political conventions, weren't threatened with grand jury subpoenas, and on and on and on. And Justin, please drop the "center-right" appellation. There is nothing even remotely centrist about anyone who supports the current administration.
