Right Wing Gunman Targeted ACLU

Remember the right wing police shooter from several days ago? You know, the one that the "liberal" press took almost no interest in?

From Talking Points Memo, you can learn:

"Anti-government shooting suspect Byron Williams has been charged with allegedly opening fire on police officers on Interstate 580 in Oakland, California, while on his way to "start a revolution" by attacking members of the ACLU...Police now say that Williams, an unemployed carpenter, told them that "his intention was to start a revolution by traveling to San Francisco and killing people of importance at the Tides Foundation and the ACLU," according to court documents."

Never heard of the Tides foundation? Well, you would have if you listened to Glenn Beck- it's one of his favorite targets.

When do you think we will have had enough of these incidents for the press to admit that the real terrorist threat in this country comes from our own home-grown, teabagging, "Christian" right wing? And do you think it will happen before or after one of these jackasses manages to pull off a really bloody attack?

These right wing kooks made heroes out of nuts like David Koresh. I don't know how you fight stupidity of that magnitude.

Republicans want an air of seething violence to permeate America. They are using both the overt and implicit threat of Violence to affect political change. This is also known by another name... Terrorism.

Conservatism is Terrorism.

It sure is today. Actually, I think the two of you together have just about hit on the right explanation:

Stupidity + Violence = Conservatism
