1. There is not much worse than a converted liberal to extremist right wing views.

I have theorized that some part of them knows how wrong they are about their views but they cannot help themselves from wading deeper. This happened to a close friend who ended up losing all of his friends and family. His brother blames it on Fox News and radical Roman Catholic Organizations.

Someone should do a study as to the causes.

4. I always wonder how deep their liberalism went in the first place...

Someone who was just going with the flow within a generally (and sometimes, supposedly) liberal environment is an easier mark for becoming disillusioned and switching rather than retaining the fundamentals but shifting some of the particulars.

Then there's people whose views basically revolve around personality traits rather than principles. I'm thinking of David Horowitz, who went straight from being a lefty radical in the 60s and 70s to right-wing radical, with no stop at "reasonable" at any point. He was always a foamer, he just flipped which direction he pointed his foam cannon at. (Didn't hurt that one direction pays a lot better.)

5. Is this thread somehow different from dozens already posted about the musings of Jon Fucking Voight?

Not picking on you, author of OP. You just happened to be in the line of fire when I fucking snapped. Gotta say, I'm not a fan of thread multiplicity.
