20. Limbaugh's sick twisting of language got spread around as radio script even before Obama.

They're not revolutionaries, patriots, heroes or martyrs.
These rioters aren't just a malleable mob of willing seditionists.

Worse, they've become domestic terrorists who should never have let themselves be conditioned to fear and hate fellow Americans, mobilize online, dress like party hooligans & militias who'd carry weapons and drive trucks through the Mall if they could. They drive armed as such in their home states.

They operate with public impunity like lynchers did, who made a day of violence, bringing snacks and families to cheer them on.

They know they can outnumber and outgun law enforcement. They tell them that in writing, give them forewarning and hope law enforcement will see them as patriots, the way they see themselves.

Next time they show up in DC, after more practice in terrorizing their state's citizens in public places, it won't be just one who gets shot. Because now, arrested or free, they've promoted themselves as courageous martyrs for their leader and causes. Back home they get mixed reviews but the soil they grow from is still back home, where they get enough validation -- from being ignored, avoided and/or hailed as heroes -- to make it a way of life.

Right wing wilding is not a life plan.
