2. Shades of John Ashcroft.

The rightwing nutjob groups are OK, as they support the secret government rightwing nutjobs running the show.

During Iran-Contra, light was shed on Ollie North and his treasonous crowd. The idea was that the Michigan Militia and a bad number more of the other right-wing paramilitary groups across the nation would be deputized to do Reagan-Bush's domestic dirty work, in the event of a "national emergency." The idea was that the government would be able to circumvent the posse comitatus laws if there were mass protests against a "hypothetical" U.S. invasion of Central American nations like El Salvador or Nicaragua. Reagan-Bush thought they might need to round up undesirables, foreigners and whoever else they designated as enemies of the state, like peaceniks and libruls.



Crisco lives.
