The arrests of 9 members of an armed militia group in Michigan should serve as a wake up call to those politicians who are inciting rage against the government. My fear is that they won't see the connection between their rhetoric and the rage they inspire.
Do horrors like the Hutaree militia represent the inevitable consequence of a religion whose central symbol -- the cross -- represents one of the most unpleasant and cruel tortures that can be inflicted?
We're always eager as hell to call someone not from this country who desires to attack us and spread fear and chaos a terrorist -- as well we should. What we're not as eager to do is say that to someone from within this country.
