I think it is being taken more and more by the far right. I think this has something to do with the fact that long hair is often part of counterculture and we're now (thankfully) at a point in history where the right's racism, sexism, and greed are the minority instead of the majority and so by definition they have a bigger claim to counterculture than at any other point in our recent history. And those who like counterculture for the sake of counterculture are flocking that way because they think that being a minority in and of itself makes them cool.
Having said that, I feel as though the fact that I'm very very left of center and live in the reddest part of a blue state is necessary information to put my views into context.
