OK..the headline was just for shock value (and to get the conspiracy theorists to visit my blog too) In my unquenching thirst to know the viewers of the Bearman Cartoon Blog, I thought it important to see what news former United States Presidential Candidate Ron Paul has been making.
Well it seems he (and his supporters) have caught the eye of the Missouri Information Analysis Center. A recent report titled the Modern Militia Movement, implicated several groups as a potential domestic terrorist threat, including those who oppose the Income Tax (who doesn’t) and Illegal Immigration.
Under the heading “Political Paraphernalia,” the report states, “Militia members most commonly associate with 3rd party political groups. It is not uncommon for militia members to display Constitutional [sic] Party, Campaign for Liberty, or Libertarian material. These members are usually supporters of former Presidential Candidate [sic]: Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr.”
Since the report was published, it appears that a retraction and apology was made. Duh! While I am sure as you could find in any group there are those on the fringe, it’s a wonder that this could even have been published in the first place. Thus comes the most recent editorial cartoon.
