When Republican Minority Leader John Boehner says,“. . . violence and threats are unacceptable. That’s not the American way." he ignores history. A good study of the roots of the Militia Movement, To Shake Their Guns in the Tyrant's Face: Libertarian Political Violence and the Origins of the Militia Movement by Robert Churchill shows that violence was a part of pre-Independence political discourse through the time of the Civil War and on into the 20th century.
And what of the violent anti-war protests of the 60's and 70's? Will the Left's hypocrisy hold that that was 'good' violence and as 'bad' any violent opposition to the current status quo?
