About Violent Rhetoric and Violent Acts

Can we start that discussion about acts of domestic terrorism again? A bomb was discovered along the planned route for the Martin Luther King Day march in Spokane on Monday morning. The parade route was rerouted, and the FBI neutralized the threat after evacuating nearby businesses.

This might have something to do with "taking back our country" or whatever the Beck-ism is for a war against modern American society that is embodied in the Civil Rights movement's demand of equal justice for all Americans. But I suppose it is too early to jump to conclusions. Probably just another totally crazy person who doesn't have any contact with the real world.

Just like Jared Loughner, who referenced the anti-semitic conspiracy theories that Beck supports or Byron Williams, the shut-in who decided to drive to a philanthropic group with several guns after Beck spent a week attempting to connect it to several conspiracy fantasies.
