Political Violence

Regardless of what motivated this guy, or if he was just crazy as shit (this interview with his friend seems to lean that way), I think my reaction to the shootings was significant.

When I heard about the shootings on Saturday, I felt a lot of emotions but I wasn't surprised. Not in the slightest.

Whether or not Beck and others like him helped motivate this guy, there's only so long they can tell their listeners (that most certainly include unstable people) that we've had a undemocratic takeover of our government by a scary foreign guy before someone decides they're going to be the hero that saves us from this tyranny.
