These 'United States': ‘Violent Far Right’, West Point Military Academy

West Point study on ‘violent far right’ shows ‘dramatic rise’ in attacks
January 19, 2013 - A report published by the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point Military Academy on Jan. 15 discusses the potential dangers of “violent far-right” organizations, which has angered some conservatives that believe the military should focus on international threats.

West Point: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right

NOTE: Whelp, we can see how the next four years are going to be.

On CBS just a short while ago Scott Pelley said they invited a number of tepublicans for comments on this mornings show leading up to the events and the inauguration and many informed them that they couldn't because they weren't going to be in town, i.e. DC where they work on our dime, for the Historic Day!!

Nor will bush jr. be there, understandable that bush sr. won't be, only living past Presidents to attend will be Carter and Clinton!
