Folks the whole "us" vs. "them" mindset, which is called for and described well by socionomic theory, is building. The political and economic elites, the ones who think that they are in charge, are going to be making some very provocative statements in the months and years to come. This clip from Hizzoner makes it clear what the political elites are worried about (money quote starts at the 2:20 mark):
“If I had to guess, twenty five cents, this would be exactly that [a homegrown terrorist]. Homegrown, maybe a mentally deranged person or someone with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything.”
If you are attending Tea Party events, this should be a screaming warning that the political elites consider you mentally ill and potentially part of a terrorist organization. This is only getting started, friends.
