The danger to America comes from within. We are under siege. We are being subjected to a pervasive, vile and yet subtle domestic terrorism on a level unseen (and not readily perceived) in modern times. Perhaps, because we are captives of our value of free speech, free speech (as well as actions and behaviors) is being used as a weapon to incite anarchy in this present time, and specifically, with this President.
Remember Timothy McVeigh and his cohort, Terry Nichols about fifteen years ago ushered in a ferocious domestic terrorism that targeted all Americans, not just one group. While we looked for the usual suspects, the American Pie Brigade struck. And, they continue to strike.
When the Sarah Palin's, Rush Limbaugh's, and the Tea Party types command media attention to increase their notoriety behind the guise of free speech, then we Americans become victims and hostages to our highest ideals essentially aiding and abetting fear mongering, hatred and racism. In that sense, the extremist right-wing, is openly raping American values and integrity.
This type of social unrest is to be expected. The election of the first Black President has effectively served to realign the universe not only for Americans but the world. We are in the fog of America's twenty-first century reconstruction. And, we, you and I are articulating this societal reconstruction. Those that claimed power and domination for so long see the clear shift in the power and control paradigm.
The forces of hell are being released. If ever there was a time to believe in the power of good ... and to be a force for social good, it is now!
What can ordinary citizens do? Fight back. Do not let extremism and fear mongering over take reason and control our country. These strains of hate, anarchy and extremism resemble Nazism, acts of sedition and the prelude to a civil war. Inform yourselves. Speak up. Speak out.
Americans will always believe and uphold free speech. Yet, calls for anarchy, acts of sedition, "Reload," and "kill" demand our collective voice in dismantling of these forms of domestic terrorism. Never has the importance of your voice, your vote and your participation in the future of our country and our children's future been more important.
