Aymenn Jawad says, "...making the generalisations that you do is just ad hominem par excellance."

Your assertion is mere wishful thinking, I'm afraid, and is itself a gross generalization based on irrelevant data and faulty assumptions, even to assuming the Left had nothing to do with eugenics. It did, and it still does.

Although my comment was necessarily a summation, it was hardly a "generalization," the specifics of which were contained in the reference I gave. Here is another by the same author which gives even more specifics. The real "ad hominem" is associating the Right Wing with Nazism based on superficial aspects of the two.

The Left doesn't want to be associated with evils of Leftism, not because they are evil but because it will expose them for who they are. They don't want people to know that Fascism drew some of it's inspiration from the early American "Progressives," with whom many modern Leftists
are today so enamored.

Interestingly, the Muslim world also has an interest in suppressing any knowledge of their own connection with the Leftists, especially the profound Arab adulation of Hitler (Abu Ali), as well as their intimate association with him. So, when the "Palestinian" Arabs complain that they had nothing to do with the Holocaust, don't believe them. They were, and are, up to their necks in it.

The more one examines the Left, it's ideology and it's history, the more the connections between it and extremist groups become comprehensible. The longer those associations are obscured, the longer it will take to isolate and delegitimize them. The more people who can clearly see through their deceptions, the fewer adherents they will have, and the sooner the world will be rid of their tyranny.
