LA Times: Angry white men are terroristsSubmitted by egapele on Wed, 03/13/2013 - 11:45
Check out this unsigned editorial from the LA Times:
Peril from 'patriots'
The U.S. needs to keep a close watch on the growing threat of home-grown extremist groups.
There are, in increasingly frightening numbers, cells of angry men in the United States preparing for combat with the U.S. government. They are usually heavily armed, blinded by an intractable hatred, often motivated by religious zeal.
They're not jihadists. They are white, right-wing Americans, nearly all with an obsessive attachment to guns, who may represent a greater danger to the lives of American civilians than international terrorists.
These groups should be closely monitored, with resources adequate to the task, even if it means shifting some homeland security money from the hunt for foreign terrorists.
