Holocaust Museum Shooter a “Right-Winger?”

The media’s use of “right-wing” in describing the shooter at the Holocaust Museum has sparked a bit of controversy. A few examples:

On the Daily Beast, the headline “Right-Wing Terror Returns” was used in their article about yesterday’s shooting.

Yesterday, the Washington Examiner‘s J.P. Friere tweeted this message:

Be sure to call in to your news affils to object to calling this guy a right winger, or being anything other than a white supremacist.

So we turn to you. Take a second to vote — is it fair to use the term “right-wing” in this instance?
