I had a horrible realization watching the 912ers in action.
I realized they are acting exactly like Rev. Phelps and his clan, the ones who protest at US soldier's funerals with "God Hates Fags" signs.

Before, there was mainly only Phelps and his congregation/extended family being so consistently, publicly, aggressively insane. Now it seems tens of thousands of people are going permanently overboard, and they are getting worse. The hysteria and mania stemming from Obama's election is just starting to show, and it's being encouraged by private interests with money, a major network, and the general behavior of the media in general. It's going to accumulate and explode unless some turn of events stops it (what, I don't know).

The video that did it: http://crooksandliars.com/david-neiwert/yes-respectable...

That was my realization. I hope I am wrong.

1. Thats my worry
Its going to get worse ans worse, to keep getting higher ratings, Beck has to be more and more loopy and his fans will get more and more riled up, something will explode.
