  •  I'm afraid the military will take their side (7+ / 0-)
    More to the point, are the organs of state security – Secret Service, FBI, Homeland Security, etc. – taking them as seriously as maybe they should?Even more to the point, should we maybe take seriously the idea that these organizations themselves (DoD in particular) might be increasingly composed of people who are willing to overlook or even assist the crazies in their goals?
    This is what I fear.  That the military and the state security apparatus is composed of people who are drawn from the same socioeconomic background, indoctrinated with the same worldview and value system of toxic nationalism and siege mentality, and who are inclined to see themselves as the only "real Americans" who must engage in violence in order to protect that identity and its association with the state.

    I think the fundie-infested Air Force is more likely to nuke a major American city - singing hymns all the while - than any bunch of terrorists.

    To those who say the New Deal didn't work: WWII was also government spending
