Oh, how the columnists at the NY Times and the left-wing blogs desperately want a militia threat with which to beat law-abiding citizens over the head in the name of Obamamania.
There’s a lot of anger out there. But the alleged plot by Midwestern militants and violent outbursts by scattered individuals don’t signal any coming wave of extremist violence, federal investigators say.
There’s more fizzle than fight among self-styled militias and other groups right now, they say, and little chance of a return to the organized violence that proved so deadly in the 1990s.
Militia extremist statements “primarily have served as an expression of anger after a particular event,” according to an FBI intelligence bulletin obtained by The Associated Press. “The FBI assesses the likelihood of violent conflict from the remaining group members or other militia extremists as low.”
Of course, reality will not change anything for those intellectually dishonest columnists and bloggers who wake up every morning hoping that there will have been an act of violence they can pin on the “right wing.”
Update: So Much for That ‘Rising Risk’
