Domestic Terror Threat at New High

And the Southern Poverty Law Center should know, as they've tracked this stuff for years.  They've issued a report today finding that the "number of militias and radical anti-government 'patriot' groups operating in the USA reached an all-time high in 2012...The center tracked 1,360 radical militias and anti-government groups in 2012, an eightfold increase over 2008 when the center recorded 149 such groups, the report says. The explosive growth began four years ago, sparked by the election of President Obama and anger about the poor economy, the center says."  In fact, the atmosphere mirrors the mood in the six months before the Oklahoma City blast.
The report cites examples of groups that predicted civil war and tyranny after Obama's executive orders on gun control, including Fox News Radio host Todd Starnes who tweeted, " Freedom ends. Tyranny begins." and ConservativeDaily.com's Tony Adkins, who wrote, "Martial law in the United States now a very real possibility."
My influential book "So Wrong For So Long," on the media and the Iraq war, was published this week in an expanded edition and for the first time as an e-book.
