There's one outstanding problem with articles like this one. The reporter only scratches the surface, everybody is on their best behavior and they are such nice people and it's probably not a bad thing.
Wrong. The mainstreamers like Appleseed are the fountain of encouragement and escalation for violent actors. Appleseed is the terrorists audience and cheering section.
So when you see this sort of activity, and reporters can go out and spend a lot of time covering it a mile wide and never scratch the surface. The people who will commit the crimes of terrorism (like McVeigh, Drega, Rudolph, Franklin, Rice, Smith, etc ad nauseum) only hover around the edges of these groups. So after we see a series of mass killings (probably next Spring), all the Appleseeders can say it wasn't them. But they will still play a critical role in establishing an atmosphere that condones and encourages terrorist violence.
Lynch mobs comprise many more people than just the ones with the rope.
