Not necessarily true.

The word "radical" isn't limited to strictly the left side. Maybe I should have been more specific, but the term "radical" can mean anything very different than the norm, such as extremist, etc. "Radical right" is even a well known term.

The term "radicalism" is generally known as a lefty word, yes, but the word "radical" (which i meant) is basically something that is far far from the norm (which is exactly what Tim Thomas is, obviously ).
