    Not sure that's ever happened with any of my posts before.

    What's so striking about the most reactionary elements of the Right is that they are what they hate. Projection of conspiracy by conspiracists, projection of sedition by seditionists, projection of shari'a and taqiyya by theocrats and dissimulators, et cetera.

      I think about that all the time, and not just in the larger context.

      In a 37 year legal career I have seen this all the time from certain litigators. They routinely accuse others of misconduct in the case because it is exactly what they are doing and they assume their opponents are no better than themselves.

      I've had my eye on these lunatics for thirty years, since I worked as an assistant attorney general in a Western state. They have steadily grown to the point that, with support from representatives of an established political party, their sedition is in danger of becoming mainstream. Your remarkable dissection of the creepy Mr. Poole needs all the exposure it can get so that as many as possible understand the kind of dangerous, violent, organized, internal threat to the government that is growing.
