Fightin' Fightin' Nutroots Worry That "Right Wing Crazies" Will Go On Violent Rampage, Start Civil War If Obama Is Elected [Nice Deb]

Oh shoot…they’re on to us!

This is via Firedoglake (follow my link if you want to go there, I know Ace doesn't like to link to left wing blogs):

If there is a President Obama come next Jan. 20, normal folks better brace for what the right-wing crazies have in mind. Because it’s becoming clear that they are winding themselves up now for a fresh spate of violence if Obama wins.

When was the last spate of right wing violence? When Janet Reno firebombed the Branch Davidians in Waco, TX?

In any event, a pattern is already developing, ranging from the Klan fellows who promise that Obama will be shot to the white supremacists who are actually rooting for him to win because they’re certain he will fail. We’re hearing a lot of language from the racist and “Patriot” right indicating that they expect a Democratic president to enact policies (particularly regarding gun control) that will inspire “civil war.” Which means they are looking for excuses to act out.

As always with these folks, there’s a lot of projection going on here. Because even if a President Obama follows only the most moderate of liberal agendas, the far right will look upon those policies as cause for “civil war.” That was how they responded to Bill Clinton, after all — a white male Southerner with generally conservative leanings. One can only imagine how a liberal black man from Illinois would fare.

Holy moly! Projection, he says? Who are the folks actually talking about crashing, disrupting and rioting at the Democrat and Republican conventions? Hint: They’re not right wing crazies.

The extremist right went into remission, largely, with the election of George W. Bush; militias disbanded because their followers believed the threat of an oppressive, gun-grabbing, baby-killing “New World Order” had largely passed. They bided their time by forming Minutemen brigades. Now they can see that their “safe” era is coming to an end.

All this time, there really has been hankering for an excuse to start acting out violently, and they see any Democratic presidency as providing that excuse. But an Obama presidency in particular will do so.

My word, but that is some mighty fine paranoid and delusional crazy, right there.

Well, there is indeed a potential threat looming after this election in which terrorists will make ordinary people feel unsafe about going to places like malls — just like they did in the 1990s.

WTF? I don’t remember being afraid to go to malls in the nineties. I do remember being worried for a while after 9/11.

But they won’t be Arabs coming from Baghdad. They’ll be little Timmy McVeighs from Buffalo.

Timmeh!!!

You just knew McVeigh would be mentioned. It’s always him and the abortion clinic bomber. They pretty much describe the whole right wing to these people.

Hahahahahahaha!

Then again, to the folks on the right, that doesn’t seem to be a problem. To the rest of us, well, we had better be prepared. I think we’ll all find that the “law enforcement approach to terrorism” is a lot more effective than those same right-wingers have been telling us the past few years.

Well well well. That last bit sounds like a thinly veiled (dare I say) fascist threat.

Here’s what one of their clear eyed, not in the least bit crazy commenters said:

Even if the next generation of Christianist jihaddis manage to blow something up, hard right rethugs would still try to blame the attack on muslims, or perhaps on us…. and the press will buy into it.

Yessiree! We all know who the real enemies of the State are. Those darn Christianists!

Huh, fancy that.
