One of our Chief Justices has a wife that’s a hard-core political activist (just like our skinless mayor!) and her think tank Liberty Central is saying some very alarming things (that have nothing to do with Coke bottles but are even more revolting).

The McVeigh Tapes: Confessions of an American Terrorist

Tomorrow, April 19th , Americans will  mark the 15th anniversary of the bombing of a federal building in Oklahoma City — the worst single act of domestic terrorism in our nation’s history and a grim reminder of the fruits of right-wing radicalism.

Airing on MSNBC this Monday at 7:00 PM, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow will present an insightful two-hour documentary.   According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which tracks hate groups throughout the country, the program will help answer questions about McVeigh’s motivations and those of others like him. The film draws extensively on audiotapes of the two reporters who interviewed McVeigh at length before his execution.

Since the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995, the Southern Poverty Law Center reports that it has documented 75 domestic terrorist plots, most of which involved individuals with extreme antigovernment views. One of the plots, if carried out, would have resulted in the deaths of some 30,000 people.

According to Mark Potok, Director of the SPLC Intelligence Project, “The radical right caught fire last year, as broad-based populist anger at political, demographic and economic changes in America ignited an explosion of new extremist groups and activism across the nation.”
