Eric Boehlert connects some extremely disturbing dots. I’ll quickly concede that proving cause and effect, as opposed to mere correlation, is next to impossible in these cases. But it’s also worth remembering that the last time we went through a period of such overheated radical-right rhetoric, we got Tim McVeigh and Eric Rudolph out of it.

Relatedly, David Neiwert, whose Orcinus blog has long patrolled the shadowy frontier between the far right and the bat-feces-insane right, has a new book out, “The Eliminationists: How Hate Talk Radicalized the American Right.” I’m looking forward to reading it, although I don’t think I’ll enjoy it.
