    The "Guardians of the Free Republics", an anarchist group has apparently made threats against 30 of the 50 Governors.

    The FBI is investigating.

    Virginia Politics Blog - McDonnell, other governors receive letter threatening 'removal' if they don't resign

    Guardians of the free Republics: Could threats spark violence? / The Christian Science Monitor - CSMonitor.com

    Here is the group's web site:

    So? You are aware that McCain was left of center and Bush was also? The Republican party is run by the slightly left of center not by right wing whack jobs. Neo Cons in fact are Left of center people that got TIRED of how far left the Democrats had moved, they are left of center themselves but only a bit.

    I always loved the argument that Bush was far right. Most sane people laugh every time you dumb asses make the claim. As for the religious right? It has no real power. Hasn't since at least the early 90's.

    Keep proving just how fucking STUPID you are.

    Are you aware how nasty and bitter you sound here?

    Feel free to point out where my OP was accusatory?

    All I said was that a right-wing anarchist group was being investigated by the FBI for some threats they made. I didn't say they were guilty, I didn't imply anything but the facts.

    Why don't you save your venom for a situation that calls for it, k?

    Up until Bush's final year or so virtually all right wingers of all flavors supported him.
    Except for some libertarians and such and most of them would not even speak out against Bush.
    They kept proving how stupid they were.

    Bush kept setting record defecits and pretty much doubled the national debt, but little outrage was heard form the right till Obama got in office.

    You do realize that anarchists are not right, nor are they left, Vast. When it comes to these types of groups, they are unique unto themselves.
    Just like Nazi's are not a fringe left group, nor are the Aryan Nation a fringe right group.
    Try looking at each party as in a full circle and not a not a straight left and right side.

    Well... The organization did send out letters to all those governors.

    And the governors were of both parties. I think Bobby Jindal and McConnell from Virginia both got one.

    Anarchist was my term. I used it because the main intent of these folks seems to be the dismantling of the government.

    Extreme Libertarians, which is what this group appears to be, are Anarchists.

    I'm not saying all Libertarians are Anarchists, but people who take it to the extreme most certainly are.

    Though, I have to say, their message does not seem to indicate violence in any way...
