. As we observe the fifteenth anniversary of the America’s greatest act of domestic terror, the Oklahoma City Bombing, let us be ever mindfull of those clear and present threats aimed at our public safety, regardless of which side of the political spectrum they come from, and as good citizens, stand up to reckless rehtoric when ever and where ever you confont it.

On April 19th, on the fifteenth anniversary of the Oklahoma City Bombing, MSNBC will televise live footage of interviews with Timothy McVeigh, the right wing mastermind of the attack. In light of all the turbulence and controversy surrounding the administration of Barack Obama, is this just another case of crass sensationalism or does it serve as a timely, in your face, reminder of what constitutes an extreme threat to public safety?

There is this idea in physics called the Planck length. It is thought that if you take something this infinitesimally small and fold it over it describes the event horizon of a black hole. This is a singularity that when something passes it never returns. Anything going over the event horizon has effectively been cut off from the universe that we know. This is where Rep. Michele Bachmann and other Republicans have gone.
Over the weekend she was heard telling a rally in Duluth MN the following:
"Democrats said that they were called the ‘N word,’ which of course would be wrong and inappropriate. But no one has any record of it. No witness saw it, it’s not on camera, it’s not on audio," she said. "They said that they were spat upon. No one saw it."
She went on, "There’s a $10,000 reward right now for anyone who can produce a video or an audio. Don’t you think we would have seen a video or an audio by now if there was something out there?"
This is not the first Republican to say this kind of thing. I could not find the clip but sometime last week on Hardball with Chris Mathews one of his regular, Republican strategist Ron Christie (the only person who my wife would shout "You Tool!" at on TV) made the same point. It is pretty galling to see an African American who has probably felt first hand racism being willing to doubt that it was expressed against African American politicians.

Anyone who thinks I am off course on the topic of right-wing extremism should consider the latest incident that was reported on the evening news. Over the weekend the FBI arrested nine members of the Hutaree Militia, located in southern Michigan, when the agency uncovered their plot to kill a policeman and then bomb his funeral so as to create the mass killing of his fellow officers. The leader of this group, David Brian Stone, believed that this act would trigger a nationwide revolt against the Federal Government by thousands of “aggrieved citizens”. Stone’s ex-wife said that his life had “spiraled out of control” and that he believed that this despicable act was part of some preordained plan to “defend the world against the anti-Christ.”

Right-wing radio host Brian Sussman of Citadel station KSFO agrees with a caller who meets a government employee with a loaded shotgun.
This is the letter I sent to the government entity (California Air Resources Board). I also copied the Census Bureau who will also have employees going to homes in the next several months.

Last night, at Rep. Jim Moran’s town hall, a man wearing a Cato Institute t-shirt punched a supporter of the proposed health care legislation. Political discourse does not equal violence. This is a huge problem and something must be done.
