A right wing, anti-government, radical attacked the Dallas Police Department last weekend. This character used bombs, assault weapons and a used armored van in his attack. Armored van was a swat team van purchased as a used vehicle.
The corporate controlled media gave this incident little coverage, with nary a mention on Fox. At least I found nothing on Fox during the event.
It has been 20 years since another anti-government radical set off a bomb in Oklahoma, killing 168 people including 19 children.
In April of 2009 Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano released a report suggesting lone wolf right wing extremists were the biggest threat to our national security.
This report was condemned by right wingers and Napolitano was chastised for issuing such a report.
The SPLC reports in the last 6 years a domestic terrorist incident has occurred, on average, about once a month.
Personally I think these radical “I hate gubbiment” characters come from Saint Ronnie’s “In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.” in his 1981 inaugural address.
This was the seed that began the growth of all these anti-government groups and thoughts. Some of my younger friends have experienced this rhetoric all their lives.
We currently have the government we elected. If you are not happy with this government, do something. Get involved, get learned and work to get people elected that will work for you, not just the wealthy few currently in control.
You can have the government you want.
Bernie Sanders is my choice to do this. Check him out and let me know what you think.
“and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
