Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think this is consistent with Altemeyer's "authoritarian personality" theory. Strong group identification (complete with hypocrisy, self-righteousness, inability to take into account contrary evidence, and ability to held contradictory beliefs) is a key feature of "right-wing authoritarianism".
