    I attribute a lot of it to Rush Limbaugh, who gave the extremism and craziness a voice and drew ever more people into this line of thinking. The quoted material above points out:

    ... a steeply increasining frequency of violent incidence beginning in the mid-1990s
    So I looked up information on Limbaugh's radio show, and it began broadcasting nationally in 1988. He published two books in 1992 and 1993 that made the bestseller link. I think this shows a definite correlation.
