Addicting Info: Michigan Law: It’s OK To Bully Gay Kids If You’re A Christian

-By Justin "Filthy Liberal Scum" Rosario

November 4, 2011- As the stigma of homosexuality fades from public discourse, people are becoming more open about their sexuality and doing so at an earlier age. This is a sign of a healthy society. Yet, there is a segment of society that is deeply disturbed by this trend and it manifests itself in our schools as anti-gay bullying. The result has been a rash of suicide among gay teens across the country.

In an effort to stop this mindless harassment, Michigan is in the middle of passing “Matt’s Safe School Law” (official title SB 137) named for 14-year old Matt Eppling, a gay teen that committed suicide in 2002 as a result of bullying. Sounds like a reasonable response but that’s only if you’re a normal person. To a Republican, SB 137 steps on our constitutional right to hound someone until they kill themselves.

Media Matters: The Right Wing's Insurrectionist Mindset

November 4, 2011- The federal government has alleged that four Georgia militia members who are accused of plotting to kill federal employees modeled their plan on right-wing blogger Mike Vanderboegh's online novel Absolved, which depicts underground militia fighters who declare war on the federal government over gun control laws and same-sex marriage, leading to a second American revolution. Vanderboegh is not alone in promoting such insurrectionism: several right-wing media figures, including other gun rights bloggers, have suggested the possibility of political violence or revolution as a  means of responding to progressive policies.


Georgia Militia Members Accused Of Plot To Kill Government Officials Allegedly Cited Vanderboegh's Novel

RAW Story: Georgia militia group planned ricin attack to ‘save the Constitution’

-By David Edwards

November 2, 2011- The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) says that four members of a fringe militia used a book written by Fox News “expert” Mike Vanderboegh as a basis for a plot to commit domestic terrorism.

Federal law enforcement authorities on Tuesday arrested four Georgia senior citizens for allegedly plotting to kill government officials and spread terror with guns, explosives and the toxin ricin.

An FBI criminal complaint (PDF) claimed that Frederick Thomas cited Vanderboegh’s book Absolved as a model for the group’s actions.

“The plot of Absolved involves small groups citizens attacking United States federal law enforcement representatives and federal judges,” special agent David Wylie explained.

The Republican wisdom is infinite. Listen to a Republican tell it like the Republicans think it is.

MSNBC: FBI: Four militia members plotted to attack buildings, release poison

'I'd say the first ones that need to die is the ones in the government buildings'

-By Pete Williams

November 1, 2011- Four Georgia men in their 60s and 70s were arrested Tuesday, accused of being members of a right-wing militia group that plotted to attack federal office buildings and to disperse a deadly biological poison in Atlanta. 

Their alleged plot was revealed to the FBI by a confidential informant last spring, and members of the group have been meeting since May with someone they thought was a black-market weapons dealer but who turned out to be an undercover federal agent, according to court documents.

No attacks were ever attempted. Federal officials say the men were disrupted before they could act on the plot.
