    I was talking about texas specifically, and even more specifically the governor, who incidentally invited fat fuckhead Limbaugh to move there.

    Ol guvvy didn't have a problem when their village idiot ran the show, but suddenly OH NO, the sky is falling..

We have to worry about the KKK, National Vanguard, Aryan Nation and other crackpots just as much, if not more than Islamic terrorist groups. They've been a thorn in the side of our nation a hell of a lot longer.

    Obama has made it clear that he believes in the Constitutional right for Americans to have weapons. He just wants tougher gun laws and doesn't believe there's a reason for ordinary citizens to have assault weapons. Clinton believed the same thing and I didn't see people running out to stock up on guns.

    These morons are buying guns because they feel like they're losing their country and they're ready to fight another civil war.

    You're right, people did bitch for the past 8 years. But people on the left weren't running around stocking up on guns and leading stupid protests about taxes, which maybe we should've done. Meanwhile, Dubya and Co. were busy shredding the Constitution at every turn. That's something to bitch about.

    Very true. And if we look back into recent history, there's this (from a right-wing blog, mind you):

    During the Clinton years there were murders and attempted murders of Americans in the name of “Pro-Life”:

    In the U.S., violence directed toward abortion providers has killed at least 7 people, including 3 doctors, 2 clinic employees, a security guard, and a clinic escort.[4]

    * March 10, 1993: Dr. David Gunn of Pensacola, Florida was fatally shot during a protest. He had been the subject of wanted-style posters distributed by Operation Rescue in the summer of the year before. Michael F. Griffin was found guilty of Dr. Gunn’s murder and was sentenced to life in prison.
    * June 29, 1994: Dr. John Britton and James Barrett, a clinic escort, were both shot to death outside of another facility in Pensacola. Rev. Paul Jennings Hill was charged with the killings, received a death sentence, and was executed September 3, 2003.
    * December 30, 1994: Two receptionists, Shannon Lowney and Lee Ann Nichols, were killed in two clinic attacks in Brookline, Massachusetts. John Salvi, who prior to his arrest was distributing pamphlets from Human Life International,[5] was arrested and confessed to the killings. He committed suicide in prison and guards found his body under his bed with a plastic garbage bag tied around his head. Salvi had also confessed to a non-lethal attack in Norfolk, Virginia days before the Brookline killings.
    * January 29, 1998: Robert Sanderson, an off-duty police officer who worked as a security guard at an abortion clinic in Birmingham, Alabama, was killed when his workplace was bombed. Eric Robert Rudolph, who was also responsible for the 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing, was charged with the crime and received two life sentences as a result.
    * October 23, 1998: Dr. Barnett Slepian was shot to death at his home in Amherst, New York. His was the last in a series of similar shootings against providers inCanada and northern New York state which were all likely committed by James Kopp. Kopp was convicted of Dr. Slepian’s murder after finally being apprehended in France in 2001.

    It is stunning how these incidents start with President Clinton’s election and end around the time of his impeachment. As noted in the report this was the period when Timothy McVeigh killed 168 people, many children going into day care, in Oklahoma City.
    The Homeland Security report rightfully and accurately notes this horrible period in our history as an example of what is possible today. Recall, much of this violence and killing was while the GOP held Congress. It was not the GOP who called for this to happen, but it shows how these radicals can exploit someone’s frustration with American political policy (with some emotional issues thrown in I am sure) to create havoc, and leave good causes tainted and crippled. The fear of Clinton drove a lot of people into violence.

    And then there's this:
    The center's report, "The Year in Hate," found the number of hate groups grew by 54 percent since 2000. The study identified 926 hate groups -- defined as groups with beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people -- active in 2008. That's a 4 percent jump, adding 38 more than the year before.


    What makes this year's report different is that hate groups have found two more things to be angry about -- the nation's first African-American president and an economy that is hemorrhaging jobs. For the past decade, Latino immigration has fueled the growth of hate groups.



    "We fear these conditions will favor the growth of these groups in the future," said Mark Potok, director of the Southern Poverty Law Center's Intelligence Project. "In the long arch of history, we are definitely moving forward, but these kinds of events can produce backlashes."

    Maybe I'm misreading the posts, but people are taking GUNS to protests? An angry armed mob marching in the streets? And that's legal?

    Yup, its legal in some states. If you have a license to carry it, and it isn't a restricted area, you can bring it wherever you please. There was footage on CNN yesterday of some Tea Party in Montana or Michigan where some guy was proudly flaunting his handgun in a holster.

    What would a skinhead do if told s/he and Obama should LOVE each other because they're "all one race" and "race doesn't exist anymore" now that he was elected.

    Wow.

    I was hoping I'd misread.
