The Horseshoe Theory

There has been a lot of talk recently about the Horseshoe theory of politics: how Alt-Right and Antifa have more in common with each other than with Centrists. According to Wikipedia, “The earliest use of the term appears to be from Jean-Pierre Faye‘s 2002 book Le Siècle des idéologies.” But the theory itself is far older. Read ‘West Coast Story by Jack Davis & Frank Jacobs from ‘MAD’ magazine, April 1971 and judge for yourself: and consider how many echoes there are of Nixon in today’s incumbent.
