Anders Behring Breivik’s devastating car bomb attack on the prime minister’s offices and the slaying of young activists from the ruling Labor party trapped on an island. The attacks, in which at least 93 people were killed, were all based on Religious Hate and Fear Baiting. Breivik, who admitted to the shooting spree and bomb blast and that his actions aimed to “change Norwegian society” which he saw as being undermined by multi-culturalism.
I see a lot of parallelism between this and the Tea Party’s “Anti-Latino Immigrants” coming to this country. So as we can see an increase in Ultra-Conservative violence not only in this country but now in others.
I will take this opportunity to turn the phrase from Michael Savage’s book titled, “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder.” I don’t agree and I give the examples of Tea Party violence at town meetings after the 2008 elections, and after the votes approving the Health Care Bill.
I also give you the examples of the Six People including an US Federal Court Judge and19 injured including US Representative Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) at an informal meet and greet with her constituents at a Northwest Tucson Safeway store on Saturday by a 22-year-old man from Tucson claiming the mantle of “Conservative.”
Eight men and one woman who belonged to the group called, “Hutaree” were arrested in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio. The “Christian Warrior,” group plotted to kill a police officer sometime in April and hide homemade bombs along the funeral processional route in hopes of taking out scores of other police officers.
Being one of the most unusual developments in recent years has been the surprising spread of the so-called “Citizen’s Militia Movement” throughout the country. The Citizen’s Militia Movement has been a mainstay of the far-right, radical fringe for some time now, but until recently it was largely confined to anti-tax groups like the “Posse Comitatus” in South Dakota and white supremacist groups like the “Aryan Nations” in Idaho. “Citizen’s Militia Units” now operate in all 50 states. Skeptical observers admit that the movement now has at least 10,000 followers nationwide, but a growing number of very informed researchers claim the real figure is closer to 10 million. The difference, presumably, between hard-core activists on the one hand, and “admirers,” on the other, and given the right political context, could transition rapidly from the fringe to the core.
The kind of pull these militias have in certain parts of the country are attested to recently in the numbers that attended a series of Ultra Religious Right / Tea Party meetings. Sam Stanton, a staff writer for the Sacramento Bee, reports that “The militia movement is a phenomenon that has swept the country so quickly that even its own members are amazed. Some have referred this as “The fastest growing social movement in the United States.” Officials who monitor this movement are warning that militias are now in every State.
I now refer back to the Blow Hard Radio Personality, Michael Savage’s, “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder.” I think there is enough documented evidence given above to say just the inverse is true. “Ultra-Right Wing Religious Conservatism displays itself as the Mental Illness and the Violence that it spawns.”
