Thank You for asking this question.

It seems important to me.

The term “Anarchists ” seems so 1970’s Euro/UK. Radical Libertarianism seems so elitist- too high-falootin’.

Right wing nut job seems to be as close to perfection as there is to label these types. The problem is, cable TV is too afraid of the large demographic that sympathizes with right wing nut job rhetoric and not-thought-through dreams of Utopia.

They can’t say people like the Millers are terrorists because then they would have to take responsibility for egging these people on.

Which they simply cannot do.

re: #3 Romantic Heretic

If they were terrorists - which they were - then what does that make someone like Alex Jones, who gave them a forum to spout out on, and did, and still does, all he can to increase the fear and paranoia of his audience of cretins every day of the week? What does that make the companies who advertise with Alex Jones?

Because if we labelled them terrorists, the intellectuals that inspired them would the equivalent of the terrorist mullahs, and their intellectual fellow-travellers who haven’t been violent would be the equivalent of all the Afghans and Pakistanis (and Arabs, and Iranis) we scorn for their acceptance of extremism.

So a bunch of uncomfortable things to tease out, like all of the War on Terror rhetoric about who’s a bad guy, and why.

They are Anti American Seditionists who want to violently overthrow the US Government. There. Was that so hard?

For which I would claim credit, but it’s really the person over at Alternet who asked … I was only inarticulately fumbling at what was wrong with the media’s approach until I read his or her post.

A stochastic terrorist?

It’s only terrorism when people with other political objectives do it. When right wingers do it, they are freedom fighters!//
