Terrorism & Hate Crimes Merging? - 2

Mein Delusion
In the first post of this series, about five years ago, we noticed the sharp rise of hate crimes during the Bush II administration.

Another series framed the issue as an evolution from left to right (Evolution From Left To Right), which is still the general trend in the country today, a trend back into the feudalism, class-ism, and bully-ism of the dark ages past (American Feudalism, On The Origin of The Bully Religion).

That is, the dark ages approaching, not just the dark ages past.

Anyway, here is the text of that post which seems to have been a story about a strata of American Culture that still exists:

The right wing neoCons are talking insurrection and murder in casual settings:
"We have the chance to fight this battle at the ballot box before we have to resort to the bullet box," Crabill said. "That's the beauty of our Second Amendment rights ... Our Second Amendment rights were to guard against tyranny."
(VA GOP Catherine Crabill). If she does not get elected by the voters at the ballot box, she will take up "the bullet box" and shoot somebody is her message.

She thinks not getting elected means the voters are practising "tyranny" so she will shoot some of them?

Wow, one thing is quite obvious, getting elected is not an easy thing for them any more, because the people see them for what they are now that the daze of 9/11 is wearing off.

Pat Buchanan advocated that Mr. Palin should water board his was-to-be son in law until he stopped struggling and was dead because he said he would not vote for Sarah Palin.

It is obvious that these neoCons take elections seriously, but they crave power much more than that, so they advocate violence to take power the people will not give to them any more at the ballot box.

These dark rhetorical machinations lead to the types of murders which Senator Leahy said are increasing:
... a recent report by the Leadership Conference for Civil Rights found that a hate crime is committed somewhere in America nearly once an hour.

This is a national disgrace.

The number of hate groups in America ballooned by over 50% between 2000 and 2008 ...
(Senator Leahy Says Stop Hate Crime). It is a crime to incite a riot, and a right wing radio host was indicted for urging his audience to kill some judges.

The neoCon infection must be stopped because it is far worse than the swine flu; but one wonders if the "policy differences doctrine" will subvert American justice once again?

Since it is still National Poetry Month:

Meanwhile, far away in another part of town

Rubin Carter and a couple of friends are drivin' around.

Number one contender for the middleweight crown

Had no idea what kinda shit was about to go down

When a cop pulled him over to the side of the road

Just like the time before and the time before that.

In Paterson that's just the way things go.

If you're black you might as well not show up on the street

'Less you wanna draw the heat.

Rubin "Hurricane" Carter (RIP bro), was a victim of American Racism
