Remember a while back all the flak on the right about the Obama Administration's warnings about the threat of terrorist activities by far right groups? Remember how propagandists like Michelle Malkin called it a "hit job" by the Administration?
Well, it turns out that there is more and more evidence that the Administration had reason to warn us. The latest? This evidence from Georgia.
Four accused members of a fringe militia group are expected to make their first court appearance Wednesday, one day after they were arrested and charged with trying to buy explosives and make a deadly toxin to use in attacks against federal law enforcement agencies and unidentified officials.
Federal authorities said the men, all from North Georgia, had held clandestine militia meetings, beginning in March, in which they discussed using toxic agents and assassinations to undermine federal and state government. Militia members also discussed how to obtain firearms, ammunition and silencers, the FBI affidavit said.
The four men taken into federal custody were: Frederick Thomas, 73, of Cleveland; and Toccoa residents Dan Roberts, 67; Ray H. Adams, 65; and Samuel J. Crump, 68. All four men are scheduled to appear before a U.S. magistrate in Gainesville on Wednesday afternoon.
U.S. Attorney Sally Yates said that as the U.S. government focuses on terrorist threats by violent international extremists, “This case demonstrates that we must also remain vigilant in protecting our country from citizens within our borders who threaten our safety and security.”
ABC News is referring to these accused terrorists as "four elderly men." (Funny, but most elderly men I know are not looking to start a war with the federal government! Or to say things like "The first ones that need to die is the ones in the government buildings." )
This, of course, is, further evidence of how the toxic stew of economic instability plus steady propagandizing from the right, with racism against a Black president thrown into the mix, can result in actual or, thankfully, only potential, violence that is politically motivated - which, of course, sounds like a pretty good definition of terrorism.
Anyway, here is a video.
I am eager to see the reactions from Michelle Malkin and her fellow Republicans. Think they might rethink their earlier outrage? I'm not, of course, holding my breath waiting for an apology to the White House on their part.
