  •  I will answer your first question: Yes. They are (7+ / 0-)

    that crazy. Remember the young white southerner at CPAC who said "What for? For providing him with food and shelter?" That was in response to the group leader saying that Frederick Douglas had forgiven his former "owner."

    I don't believe they will have too many direct confrontations but I'm watching, waiting, hoping, praying that I'm wrong.

    •  I think that is the prudent approach (0+ / 0-)

      "I don't believe they will have too many direct confrontations but I'm watching, waiting, hoping, praying that I'm wrong."

      I think the self-pitying frat boys from Towson State at CPAC and their friends wearing rebel flags are mostly a joke and an embarrassment to the lucid political manipulators on the right who come up with ideas like "Frederick Douglas Republicans." I don't think they generally will ever be joining prison-related AB-type gangs or firing weapons except at a gun range, deer, or, sadly, victims of domestic violence. They may add to the hyped up self-righteousness on the right that leads to lone wolves acting out aggressively, and that is where a sane society tries to make sure the lone wolves don't get access to assault weapons, or ideally, any guns at all.  

      My avatar image is a photograph I took in 2008 of the headwaters of a waterfall in the imperiled Parque Nacional de Garajonay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on La Gomera, birthplace of my grandfather, in the Canary Islands not far from the Sahara Desert.
