Crazy Alert!


With the election of Obama the wingnuts have gone crazy. Unfortunately I predict we'll see a rise of homegrown militias again, as we did during the Clinton administration.
Remember what that was like?

Are these folks just fringe crazies? Maybe. But these fringe groups have members who receive training through our military. For example, the Southern Poverty Law Center has documented cases where White Supremacists groups encourage members to join the military for training.

Way back in 2003, when most of the country was terrified of Islamic terrorists, the federal government broke up a major terrorist plot. "F.B.I. agents discovered a weapons cache containing fully automatic machine guns, remote-controlled explosive devices disguised as briefcases, 60 pipe bombs and a chemical weapon -- a cyanide bomb -- big enough to kill everyone in a 30,000-square-foot building." This was a huge disruption of a terrorist network that received little media coverage. The frightening thing to me is that the terror group were homegrown 'patriots'. This is known as the Noonday Conspiracy and you can read more about it here.

Watch the following video. Listen to the rhetoric. And then ask yourself if you think they are serious.

(Great music isn't it? From the movie The Last of the Mohicans (1992)).
