Domestic terrorism

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

Tell me again why you never served in the military. Was it because you are a pacifist? Maybe some other reeason.

Ned: "Personal Responsibility is great, as long as right-wingers are never held responsible for anything at all!"

I'm sure Robert Talbot, Frazier Miller, and their ilk are just misunderstood. Frazier didn't mean to shoot that kid and his grandpa, it just kind of happened.

Pierce reminds us that way back in 2009, DHS put out a report on the dangers of right-wing domestic terrorism. And boy did that annoy the wingnuts.

Which part do you disavow?

1) You're a patriot
2) You're a member (or at least former member due to age) of the unorganized militia?
3) That you said it like it's a bad thing.
4) A combination of the above.

Self-professed patriotic militia groups tend to lean towards the violent and wacko right. I disavow those groups. And my small rifle isn't enough to overthrow a despotic government. But carry on with your fantasies, if you must. Just don't draw me in to your extremist idealism.

It is pretty funny how the Left views the Right, now that some elements of the Right sounds more like the the anti-authoritarian and anti-government anti-establishment lefties of the 60's. Likewise, it's funny how the Right views the Left.

A strange role reversal over the past 40 years or so. Was there a point when they were at the same place philosophically? For a nanosecond?

I'm talking about THE militia. Not any particular group. I know you don't belong to any of those groups.

Your unswerving dedication to the "let's just keep saying all gun-rights people are extremists" mantra is pretty thin. Your attempt to pretend that the unorganized militia is somehow similar or identical to unofficial militia groups is disengenuous. You know damn well there's no connection.

And yours is clearly an outlier viewpoint. You say you are against universal background checks because you are afraid that will lead to the confiscation of your arsenal. Yet even the majority of NRA members do not oppose those checks. Did you obtain any of your weaponry through a federally licensed firearms dealer?
