Domestic tranquillity

June 16, 2009

There's something about having a leftist politician (and I use that term loosely) in the White House that brings out the crazies. We all remember how it happened under Bill Clinton, and it's clear that it's even more of a problem under Barack Obama. In fact, since his inauguration, there has been an incidence of right-wing domestic terrorism about every two and a half weeks.

Eight episodes of right-wing extremist violence in four and a half months. We haven't gone four weeks since February without some poor guy -- always with a long history of mental illness, usually with a record of military service and/or domestic violence, and invariably jacked up on a toxic cocktail of white male privilege; us-versus-them enemy seeking; fury at women, blacks and/or Jews; and a belief that the world as he knew it was ending unless he took up arms -- taking out his gun and offing innocent Americans in a suicidal bid for glory.

Remember how bent the conservatives got back in April when the Homeland Security Department warned us about right-wing domestic terrorism? Well, they were right. I wonder when we're going to start waterboarding white Republicans to gather information on the next attack?
