In the wake of the tragic Boston Marathon bombings, it took mere hours for CNN to strongly hint – without anything so significant as evidence or proof – that right-wing extremists were responsible.
In this, CNN is merely following the trend over the last five years or so in which the government tries to criminalize anyone who disagrees with it. Therefore it should come as no surprise that Americans who support the Constitution and Bill of Rights are now being reclassified as domestic terrorists, despite the fact that we haven’t done anything wrong.
The first category, the racist/white supremacy movement, is fairly self-explanatory, though I question how many people actually belong to this group.
The third category, the fundamentalist movement, is defined as “mainly Christian Identity groups such as the Aryan Nations [which] fuse religious fundamentalism with traditional white supremacy and racial tendencies, thus promoting ideas of nativism, exclusionism, and racial superiority through a unique interpretation of religious texts that focuses on division of humanity according to primordial attributes.” Once again, I question how many people actually belong to this group.
However the second category, the “anti-federalist movement,” is the one I found most disturbing … because it could conceivably include literally half the population of America.
