It’s not fair or right to attribute the views of random extremists to those who share a general political orientation. But sometimes the crazy people will come right out and express a sentiment that is implicit in the positions taken by “mainstream” folk, as is becoming ever more evident as we have an actual national debate over regulating the private possession of military weapons.
You may have heard yesterday about the CEO of a Tennessee firm that offers firearm and “tactical” training publishing a video in which he threatens to “start killing people” if the Obama administration proceeds with executive orders regulating guns. Now there’s a new video out from the same terrorist, named James Yeager, that expresses his second-thought opinion that he doesn’t advocate an armed uprising against the United States government “until it’s necessary,” though he’s personally drawing “a line in the sand” against any future encroachments on his Second Amendment rights. [Note: if you watch these videos, be forewarned that this dude’s language is no more civilized than his belief-system].
