"FBI Issues Warning About Threat From Yet Another Anti-Government Group With Ties To The Radical Right."
The feds seem to believe that average, everyday people -- who happen to belong to something called "Guardians of the Free Republics" -- might just be terr'ists! And just because they contacted their governors. Shame on the feds. Shame!
The letter sent to more than 30 governors demands they step down in three days or be forcibly removed from office. According to the report, "The FBI expects all 50 governors will eventually receive such letters."
OK, so it sounds bad, but here's one of the Guardians. Just your average Joe -- wearing camouflage, wielding an assault rifle, instructing people on the best way to hoard food for the coming war, and demonstrating a knife that'll cut through body armor:
Totally harmless. Remember when Janet Napolitano and the Dept. of Homeland Security warned about rightwing extremists? How crazy was that?
Let's all laugh at them. (Think Progress)
