Political parties are coalitions. So are political movements. In both cases one must first decide which allies are acceptable and if any contain factors sufficient to reject them. Successful single-issue groups understand this, and are often more comfortably aligned with allies from other groups promoting other issues than some of those who share their own issue but have a different take and employ tactics they reject.
