I couldn't make this up if I tried. The state I live in (Missouri) now conflates supporters of Ron Paul with terrorists. Oh yeah, and the novels of Tom Clancy have helped to inspire said "terrorists." I shit you not. Read it yourself (page 7 for the Ron Paul call-out and page 1 for the Tom Clancy reference).MIAC Strategic Report - The Modern Militia Movement
In the interests of full disclosure, I was a Ron Paul supporter during his White House bid and believe that the Constitution of the United States should be observed by everyone in the land, even the political elites. And I think The Hunt for Red October is a great read.
I am not now, nor have I ever been, a member of a Militia. I wonder what other stock phrases from the McCarthy era hearings we should be brushing up on? The polarization of society proceeds apace. Keep safe, friends.
h/t WL for the heads-up on the document.
