Right-Wing Militias On The Rise In U.S.

It really does appear that every time a Democrat is elected to the White House, the American right wing simply goes crazy. We can see it amongst the birthers and the Astroturfers, and now we hear that right wing militias are on the rise.

What's blatant is that the crazy things these people believe in - that FEMA are running a secret series of concentration camps, or that Obama is planning re-education camps for American youngsters - are all the kind of nutty theories which people like Glenn Beck have been espousing.

I wonder if he would accept any responsibility for any violence which is caused by the anger he has generated?

And it's simply hysterical to watch Mark Potok, from the Southern Poverty Law Centre, being accused of "fear mongering". These people clearly have no sense of irony.
