Many of America's right-wingers were 'disappointed' with the last election, to put it mildly. While most Republicans want this country and Obama to succeed, a few incorrigible ones have gone beyond expletive-laced language and aim to throw monkey wrenches into the gears of America of 2009, in whatever way possible. The number of violent threats against the president are up. The majority of these threats come from what could be described as 'the white trash fringe'. One typical example: an arrested team of Tennessee wannabe-assassins, who had planned a suicidal killing spree against the presidential motorcade and everybody along the way. But the halfwits, hate groups, and weekend warriors may get more sophisticated training wheels provided by the most unlikely of all allies: AL QUEDA!
MODERN DAY 'DOLCHSTOSS-LEGEND': The Nazis created a legend of being 'stabbed in the back' by 'liberals and minorities lacking patriotism'. They demonized individuals and groups with false claims and stoked the public's fears of socialism. Today's 'disgruntled' thrive on random allegations, such as that their president is a foreigner with a fake birth certificate, a socialist, or worse. Because the president's middle-name is Hussein, some claim it as proof he must be an 'AY-rab'. Even the GOP's vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin fed the fear-mongering with accusations of Obama not being a true American, and alleged 'palling with terrorist'. Oddly, she herself is seen on widely circulated footage, speaking on behalf of the Alaskan secessionist party at a conference in Memphis Tennessee a few years ago. A Russian political scientist recently announced that he expects the United States to 'collapse and break apart' (into multiple pieces). As much as we in America laughed at that notion, the talk of secession resurfaced in Texas this month, with disgruntled governor Rick Perry. If he can't have his cake he wants to kick the table over! Secession talk aside, half-truths, rumors and angry suspicions are once again creating a fertile ground for extremism!
Timothy McVeigh, with his prior military background, became the most notorious domestic terrorist, with his home-made fuel-and-fertilizer-bomb that killed 168 people in Oklahoma City in 1995. He, like modern-day terrorists laying in wait, see political justification to commit unspeakable cruelty against any random group of fellow Americans. If some horrific predictions are correct, the most extreme fringes of the right-wing are presently looking for means to undermine this country, and may do so in yet unimaginably horrific ways. To them, their righteous ends justify their murderous means. Enemies abroad have taken notice of the potential of America's conspiracy theorists, bigots and Federal government haters. This fringe may not possess the know-how, but their suicidal hate has made them a valuable resource to a few conniving masterminds, who like Osama Bin Laden, master the art of manipulation. Unbeknownst to the angry, American uber-patriots gone-bad, they are already being counted on, having become de facto allies, or useful idiots of Al Queda.
An unidentified TERROR CONFERENCE: An unidentified speaker talks about Weapons of Mass Destruction; suggesting that the resulting carnage would easily exceed 300,000 killed, if a volunteer would take a suitcase of anthrax from Mexico and 'release it like confetti' in Washington, DC. There is a sub-titled translation provided by Memrite.org . which has errors (i.e. a reference to a total power outages caused by a terrorist attack, blacking out all of North America / North Africa?)
The original Arabic speaker mentions WMDs, rednecks, racists and the KKK in English. Note the huge room full of delegates attending and their callous reaction to the speaker's murderous cynicism.
LISTEN TO THIS SPEAKER AT THE TERROR CONFERENCE:
It seems as though foreign terrorists will eventually figure out a way to manipulate the domestic ones. The militant 'rednecks' may not know their benefactors, the source of their weapons, military intelligence, and simply just meet a 'guvment-hating' middle-man. Chances are, the not-so-well-read will anxiously jump at any opportunity to violently express anger at a changing world that is too complex for them to understand. As this speaker says in his own words: "...the rednecks and bigots who want to blow up nuclear power-plants, they are our friends! We wish them good luck!" (laughter of the audience)
NOTE: Personally I take offense to the over-use of the word 'redneck', although we know what is meant by it. Historically speaking the word Redneck finds it origins in the honorable labor disputes between mine-owners and coal-miners in the non-union counties of West Virginia, Lowland Scottish and Ulster Scottish immigrants, revolutionary war 15th New York Cavalry etc... but the 'correct' label is not at issue here; most of us may however associate the term used by this speaker at the terror conference with someone 'short on reason and education, but big on temper and conspiracy theories, and personal dysfunction'...
