    It seems rather hypocritical but then again hypocrisy is a key trait of modern day conservatives as well as manufacturing of fear and hate. Progressives/liberals seem downright stunted in this area.
    Manufacturing fear, dare we say terror, is another—and over the past year, we have seen cynical politicians and talk-show demagogues increasingly willing to traffic in it. It's no longer just handfuls of militia types trading overheated conspiracy theories; it's America's most popular cable news network giving gobs of airtime to people who all but advocate armed insurrection.

    I've said it before and will say it again FoxNewsFauxNewsFixedNews is a 24hr hate group. It is as the White House said not a news organization.

    With the election of Barack Obama as president, that report said, the new wave of militia activity had taken on a much more racist cast than the movement. "This extraordinary growth is a cause for grave concern," said Intelligence Report editor Mark Potok. "The people associated with the Patriot movement during its 1990s heyday produced an enormous amount of violence, most dramatically the Oklahoma City bombing that left 168 people dead."

    The Patriot movement has made significant inroads into the conservative political scene, according to the new report. "The "tea parties' and similar groups that have sprung up in recent months cannot fairly be considered extremist groups, but they are shot through with rich veins of radical ideas, conspiracy theories and racism," the report says.

    Alarming rise in the number of anti-government, anti-immigrant extremist groups

    Yeah, and Sean Hannity has made the greatest sacrifice by having his very own penis tattooed red, white, and blue. And white ink is the most painful to have applied.

    And how come you by such knowledge?

    If he really wanted to increase his ratings, clearly he needs to do a show on this, very personal, and patriotic subject.
