Remember the Christian militia folks from here in Michigan that were locked up not too long ago for allegedly plotting to kill state and local law enforcement officers? Well, it looks as though something similar is unfolding right now in Georgia, where four right-wing militia members have been arrested for planning attacks on IRS and AFT facilities. According to prosecutors, these men were inspired by the self-published novel of former Alabama militia leader Mike Vanderboegh. The novel, entitled Absolved, details the activities of underground militia fighters who, in response to gun control legislation and the threat of same-sex marriage, declare war on the federal government. Vanderboegh, who you might recognize as a Fox News “expert” on all things AFT, has denied that his novel was meant to serve as a how-to manual for domestic terrorists… Coincidentally, these four men who were arrested are from the small town of Toccoa, Georgia, where my one-day-a-year band wrote and recorded the song Kraken in 2007, which, to my knowledge, has never inspired anyone to do anything except leave the room.
