Another Right-Wingnut Terrorist Attacks

They’re coming out of the woodwork.

The Christian Science Monitor reports:

John Patrick Bedell: Did Right-Wing Extremism Lead To Shooting?

Authorities have identified John Patrick Bedell as a right-wing extremist with virulent antigovernment feelings

Well, I had a pretty good idea he wasn’t some liberal extremist.

John Patrick Bedell, whom authorities identified as the gunman in the Pentagon shooting on Thursday, appears to have been a right-wing extremist with virulent antigovernment feelings.

If so, that would make the Pentagon shooting the second violent extremist attack on a federal building within the past month. On Feb. 18, Joseph Stack flew a small aircraft into an IRS building in Austin, Texas. Mr. Stack left behind a disjointed screed in which, among other things, he expressed his hatred of the government.

Hyped up on right wing hate radio, conspiracy theories and GOP talking points no doubt.

The Pentagon attack and the destruction at the IRS building in Austin, Texas, come at a time of explosive growth in extremist-group activism across the United States, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks such organizations.

The number of US extremist paramilitary militias grew from 42 in 2008 to 127 in 2009, according to a just-released SPLC annual report.

So-called “Patriot” groups, steeped in antigovernment conspiracy theories, grew from 149 in 2008 to 512 in 2009 – an increase that the SPLC report judges as “astonishing.”

Similar to the rise in these whackos as when Bill Clinton was in office.  At some point there has to be some accountability for the likes of hate mongers like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Michele Maulkin and the rest of the purveyors of conspiracy theories and inciters of extremism.  The level of their rhetoric goes far beyond “entertainment.”

At least the herd has been culled somewhat as this fellow was put out of his misery by fellow officers of the ones that were shot.

Good riddance.
