The SPLC's Latest Manifestation of Paranoia

Seeking Federal grants, SPLC has issued a new "report."

"This next generation of hate incorporates elements of the militias, gun advocates, “nativists” opposed to immigration, tax protesters, and “birthers,” who have questioned the place of birth and citizenship of President Obama.

"The alignment of these groups could provide a dangerous mix that is susceptible to violence given the right combination of encouragement and firearms.

"Gun shows are attracting hordes of militia types, with firearm manufacturers and the National Rifle Association (NRA) feeding the demand for guns among right-wing zealots.

"Meanwhile, the voices on the right are growing angrier and more pointed by the day, as has been seen in the town hall meetings Members of Congress have hosted to discuss health care reform."

Honestly, I did NOT read Arms/Law's entire post before I wrote the header for this post--but great minds, (etc.,)...
