So, in my astute observation of your post, you're suggesting Jesus would be the opposite of the spectrum? A spit-flinging right-wing warmonger?

I suppose as above, so below. Judging by his followers in the Bush years: gun-toting hick.
He tells his followers to sell their clothes to buy weapons:
Luke 22: 35-38.
He also denies that He brings peace, and offers a "holy sword" to tear families apart instead:
Luke 14: 26-27, Matt 10: 34-39.
He curses an innocent fig tree, demon possess innocent swine, curses the Pharisees for things their FOREFATHERS did to the prophets, surrounds Himself with armed disciples who cut off people's ears and gets violent in the temple.
Definately not the typical hippy, but many hippies did harbor suppressed fascist tendencies. I'd say He'd be a gun-toting hick in our time.
I think that was more metaphorical. He was saying that people should not be so family centered that they did not care about their fellow man.
