What would you say to a man that proudly screams he is a right wing terrorist?

thinkprogress.org — The audience loudly cheered a man who stood up and declared himself to be “a proud right wing terrorist.” “Amen, God bless you,” Herger responded. “There is a great American.”

  • What would I say> Hmmm? How about "Officer, the self-proclaimed terrorist and his sympathizer is right over there"? I must state, I don't for a minute lump all right wing conservatives into the group with the nutcases who make extreme statements and incite violence through their own words. This man made the statement and a political figurehead encouraged this with his "blessing". Both need to be investigated and taken seriously in light of the comments and the obvious agreement by the GOP rep. I didn't go for stuff like this when Bush was in office either and I did not like his administrations brand of leadership. It is fine to disagree, but to align oneself with individuals who actively seek to harm others to make a point is to participate in terror tactics. I never wished harm on Bush and I find it greatly distressing to see how many openly make such statements about Obama.

  • Should be ashamed of himself. The US has suffered enough from terrorism without domestic psychopaths running loose . I hope the FBI has his number as the safest place for him would be locked up.

  • Hmmmm....I would assume he is exercising his right to free speech?! Actually I think he's probably just a left-wing plant, sent to make Republicans/conservatives LOOK bad! Not like it hasn't been done before, ya know! LOL

    And if he really is announcing his true beliefs, well, then there is a nice padded cell waiting for him!

  • I think that's kind of a stupid declaration, since our great "War on Terror"--what was he expecting to get out of saying it?

  • Timothy McVeigh was a right-wing terrorist too. So is Eric Rudolph.
