Rage on the Right.

Whenever a Democrat is elected in the US the lunatics always seem to come out of the woodwork.

The radical right caught fire last year, as broad-based populist anger at political, demographic and economic changes in America ignited an explosion of new extremist groups and activism across the nation.

[...]


Hate groups stayed at record levels — almost 1,000 — despite the total collapse of the second largest neo-Nazi group in America. Furious anti-immigrant vigilante groups soared by nearly 80%, adding some 136 new groups during 2009. And, most remarkably of all, so-called "Patriot" groups — militias and other organizations that see the federal government as part of a plot to impose “one-world government” on liberty-loving Americans — came roaring back after years out of the limelight.

[...]

“We are in the midst of one of the most significant right-wing populist rebellions in United States history,” Chip Berlet, a veteran analyst of the American radical right, wrote earlier this year. "We see around us a series of overlapping social and political movements populated by people [who are] angry, resentful, and full of anxiety. They are raging against the machinery of the federal bureaucracy and liberal government programs and policies including health care, reform of immigration and labor laws, abortion, and gay marriage."

[...]

[L]ast year ... a dramatic resurgence in the Patriot movement and its paramilitary wing, the militias, began. Now, the latest SPLC count finds that an astonishing 363 new Patriot groups appeared in 2009, with the totals going from 149 groups (including 42 militias) to 512 (127 of them militias) — a 244% jump.

As long as there is a Republican in the White House these people seem to feel safe. Because the Republicans talk their language.

But the election of a black president, and the fact that Fox News appears to be perpetually telling them that the world is coming to an end, drives these lunatics into the open to fight against "big government".

It's just so painfully predictable. We saw all of this insanity during Clinton's time in office and now, sadly, we are going to have to go through it all over again for as long as the Democrats control the White House.
