Times' Frank Rich: Is the Tea Party a Terrorist Organization?

They crossed the line and the Times' Frank Rich has called them out for what they are, "The Axis of the Obsessed and Deranged," concluding,
...In his Times article on the Tea Party right, Barstow profiled Pam Stout, a once apolitical Idaho retiree who cast her lot with a Tea Party group allied with Beck’s 9/12 Project, the Birch Society and the Oath Keepers, a rising militia group of veterans and former law enforcement officers who champion disregarding laws they oppose. She frets that “another civil war” may be in the offing. “I don’t see us being the ones to start it,” she told Barstow, “but I would give up my life for my country.”

Whether consciously or coincidentally, Stout was echoing Palin’s memorable final declaration during her appearance at the National Tea Party Convention earlier this month: “I will live, I will die for the people of America, whatever I can do to help.” It’s enough to make you wonder who is palling around with terrorists now.

If (G-d forbid!) there would ever be a Holocaust in this country or a leftist
tyranny it would be very helpful to have a group of people like that .
Such people were very helpful in Soviet Union without them the life would be totally unbearable, likewise the people like these who lived during the holocaust are now honored as "righteous gentiles" .
It's very comforting to know such people exist and are willing to proudly stand up and announce this.
This very thing probably limits some of the crazy excesses of the politicians.
It's also an an ultimate expression of the principle of ein gozrim et ha gzeirah al hatzibur she hatzibur lo yachol lekabel...
