PA Man Arrested for Threatening the President » Dispatches From the Culture Wars
Here’s a story that I think helps illustrate the danger of the far-right rhetoric about President Obama being a traitor, a Muslim, an ally of the terrorists, and so forth. A man in Pennsylvania has been arrested after threatening Obama’s life in an email to the White House and found to have a stockpile of weapons. Oh, and he did this just before Obama was to have an appearance near his home.
Of course the odds of this showing up in any of the RW echo chambers and self-fapping sites is slim to none, but I’m sure that the guy is a registered Democrat, a member of the ACLU and probably an atheist to boot. /sarc
It’s just going to be a matter of time I’m afraid before one of these nut-cases is so influenced by the vicious hatred that the RWNJs have for Obama manages to act on his plans. I’m sure some of them are well aware of the Lone Wolf strategy, and will keep a very low profile and let none in on his plans before it happens.
I so hope I’m wrong on this, but my gut tells me otherwise.
