Rachel Maddow's powerful McVeigh documentary
Last night Rachel Maddow peered into the mind of a right-wing anti-government terrorist. This documentary is a must-watch journey into the psyche of anti-government militia and "gun nuts" like the ones that rallied in Northern Virginia yesterday and how they become radicalized into right-wing terrorists.
Some key takeaways from this program:
1. The Right Wing feels that political violence is justified.
2. When the Right Wing commits acts of violence, it's your fault. When your government tries to enforce laws or taxes the Right Wing disagrees with, then it becomes okay for the Right Wing to kill you.
3. You are completely expendable. If murdering you will help the Right Wing make a political point, then they are content to do so. Your life has no value to them.
