Not exactly a small town: it's a suburb of Phoenix with over 100,000 residents, and it's home to Arizona State University.

That said, it's a little storefront church. Send ten reporters and you've probably doubled their attendance. Doesn't justify hateful behavior, but even here they're getting more attention than they deserve.

You can walk down the street in any major city and hear whackaloons preaching about the Illuminati or the CFR or the leprechaun-unicorn cabal controlling the world. We don't make a big deal about it. We don't pretend they're any part of the political process. They have a right to their free speech, however irrational or ridiculous or offensive. And we have every right to ignore them as irrelevant crackpots.

Politics doesn't belong on the pulpit — ever.  IMO.  And death threats against a POTUS should be dealt with appropriately, no matter what the source.  If you are going to hold pastors to a higher standard, then what say you about Rev. Jeremiah Wright and your POTUS who sat in his congregation for YEARS, yet claims he had no idea what that guy was preaching from his pulpit. 

Whup, did I just unearth another double standard?  Say it ain't so.
 
No, you didn't. I've never heard Jeremiah Wright preach, but as far as I know, he didn't call for the death of George W. Bush. As for the rest of of it, I'm going to claim ignorance. YES. Ignorance. Just as I didn't care what John McCain's, or in the past, John Kerry's, or G.W. Bush's, or Al Gore's, or (insert any former candidate for president) 's pastor said, I don't really care what Barack Obama's pastor said.

No, really. I don't care.

Double standard? Maybe. Perhaps I only wake up when a pastor wishes for the death of another human being (how Christian!).

Are pastors special? Do their prayers for the death of a sitting POTUS somehow mean more than just run of the mill death threats ... like say these:

Oregon Peaceniks Call For Bush’s “Execution”

Death Threats Against Bush at Protests Ignored for Years


Right.  Pastors are different.  Because they prove how far right the kooks are in the Rep party right?

And these other examples of far-lefties and their screeching is an example of what?  Modern progressive liberalism?
 
Pastors are different when they bring politics to the pulpit. Forgive me for holding pastors to a higher standard.

These people suffer from such fear! Whether it is because there is a black man in the WH, whether they feel the loss of their power, or whether they are just fearful that they will lose everything they have, they are scared to death, and endangering the rest of us in the process.

Officials See Rise In Militia Groups Across US

EILEEN SULLIVAN | 08/12/09 03:50 AM | AP

WASHINGTON — Militia groups with gripes against the government are regrouping across the country and could grow rapidly, according to an organization that tracks such trends.

The stress of a poor economy and a liberal administration led by a black president are among the causes for the recent rise, the report from the Southern Poverty Law Center says. Conspiracy theories about a secret Mexican plan to reclaim the Southwest are also growing amid the public debate about illegal immigration.

Bart McEntire, a special agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, told SPLC researchers that this is the most growth he's seen in more than a decade.

"All it's lacking is a spark," McEntire said in the report.

It's reminiscent of what was seen in the 1990s – right-wing militias, people ideologically against paying taxes and so-called "sovereign citizens" are popping up in large numbers, according to the report to be released Wednesday. The SPLC is a nonprofit civil rights group that, among other activities, investigates hate groups.

Last October, someone from the Ohio Militia posted a recruiting video on YouTube, billed as a "wake-up call" for America. It's been viewed more than 60,000 times.

"Things are bad, things are real bad, and it's going to be a lot worse," said the man on the video, who did not give his name. "Our country is in peril."

The man is holding an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle, and he encourages viewers to buy one.

While anti-government sentiment has been on the rise over the last two years, there aren't as many threats and violent acts at this point as there were in the 1990s, according to the report. That movement bore the likes of Timothy McVeigh, who in 1995 blew up a federal building in Oklahoma City and killed 168 people.

But McEntire fears it's only a matter of time.

These militias are concentrated in the Midwest, Pacific Northwest and the Deep South, according to Mark Potok, an SPLC staff director who co-wrote the report. Recruiting videos and other outreach on the Internet are on the rise, he said, and researchers from his center found at least 50 new groups in the last few months.

The militia movement of the 1990s gained traction with growing concerns about gun control, environmental laws and anything perceived as liberal government meddling.

The spark for that movement came in 1992 with an FBI standoff with white separatist Randall Weaver at Ruby Ridge, Idaho. Weaver's wife and son were killed by an FBI sniper. And in 1993, a 52-day standoff between federal agents and the Branch Davidian cult in Waco, Texas, resulted in nearly 80 deaths. These events rallied more people who became convinced that the government would murder its own citizens to promote its liberal agenda.

Now officials are seeing a new generation of activists, according to the report. The law center spotlights Edward Koernke, a Michigan man who hosts an Internet radio show about militias. His father, Mark, was a major figure in the 1990s militia movement and served six years in prison for charges including assaulting police.

Last year, officials warned about an increase in activity from militias in a five-year threat projection by the Homeland Security Department.

"White supremacists and militias are more violent and thus more likely to conduct mass-casualty attacks on the scale of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing," the threat projection said.

A series of domestic terrorism incidents over the past year have not been directly tied to organized militias, but the rhetoric behind some of the crimes are similar with that of the militia movement. For instance, the man charged with the April killings of three Pittsburgh police officers posted some of his views online. Richard Andrew Poplawski wrote that U.S. troops could be used against American citizens, and he thinks a gun ban could be coming.

The FBI's assistant director for counterterrorism, Michael Heimbach, said that law enforcement officials need to identify people who go beyond hateful rhetoric and decide to commit violent acts and crimes. Heimbach said one of the bigger challenges is identifying the lone-wolf offenders.

One alleged example of a lone-wolf offender is the 88-year-old man charged in the June shooting death of a guard at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington.

Out of Sarah Palin's mouth:

As more Americans delve into the disturbing details of the nationalized health care plan that the current administration is rushing through Congress, our collective jaw is dropping, and we're saying not just no, but hell no!

The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the cost of health care, but as the economist Thomas Sowell has pointed out, government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's "death panel" so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their "level of productivity in society," whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.

Health care by definition involves life and death decisions. Human rights and human dignity must be at the center of any health care discussion.

Rep. Michele Bachmann highlighted the Orwellian thinking of the president's health care advisor, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of the White House chief of staff, in a floor speech to the House of Representatives. I commend her for being a voice for the most precious members of our society, our children and our seniors.

We must step up and engage in this most crucial debate. Nationalizing our health care system is a point of no return for government interference in the lives of its citizens. If we go down this path, there will be no turning back. Ronald Reagan once wrote, "Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth." Let's stop and think and make our voices heard before it's too late.
