    Who would that be?

    Of course the more I hear of their philosophy about the gov't the more similarities I see, but as to whether any of them ever attended any Tea Party meetings is yet to be known.
    Whose philosophies?

    What do you think it would say if some the members of that militia attended tea parties?

    I found this article written in 2001 very interesting

    http://www.fas.org/irp/world/para/left.pdf

    Left-wing extremism often has developed from working-class movements seeking in theory to eliminate, not preserve, class distinctions. Communism evolved from left-wing extremism. The threat from left-wing extremists did not die with the collapse of the Soviet Union, however. Domestic groups and state-sponsored cells and individuals have continued their espionage activities and the planning of terrorist actions against the U.S.government. Leftist extremists were responsible for three-fourths of the officially
    designated acts of terrorism in America in the 1980s
    . From an international perspective, of the 13,858 people who died between 1988 and 1998 in attacks committed by the 10 most active terrorist groups in the world, 74 percent were killed by leftist organizations

    Although the current domestic terrorist threat within the United States is focused on right-wing extremists and white supremacists, left-wing extremists are alive and well and have several objectives. Some of these groups want to replace the government with a Marxist-Leninist system. Others want to carve out a new nation in the southeastern United States where the “national territory of Kush” would be established. Some of the
    leaders of these movements are currently political exiles living in Cuba, but new leaders are emerging within the United States as well.
    Leftist extremists also pose an espionage threat to U.S. interests. Within the past several years, a cell of three Americans who started spying for East Germany during the 1970s and a group of 12 people spying for the Cuban government have been arrested. The three Americans, all committed to communism, have proudly spent their lives betraying America’s secrets. The Cubans were ordered to collect information on U.S. military activities in Florida. Between 1988 and 1998, 13, 858 people died in attacks committed by the 10 most active terrorist organizations in the world. The most violent of these was the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which was responsible for 3,575 deaths. When all of the deaths attributed to these groups are compared, leftist organizations were responsible for 10,198
    or 74 percent of all people killed by the 10 major terrorist groups during this time periodii
    (Omestad, et al., 1999). From an international perspective, leftist terrorism is alive and
    well.
    At present, the black liberation movements in the United States are following a political
    and community-based agenda, unlike the 1970s when the agenda also included terrorist
    activities. However, the nationalist movement of the 1970s, which initially had the same agenda, resulted in extremists within the movement forming several terrorist groups including the Black Liberation Army and the Republic of New Africa. Some of the members of those groups are still incarcerated or living in Cuba.
    More recently, there has been a similar emergence of terrorist organizations from extremists among right-wing groups. The Brotherhood of Silence, a terrorist group most active in 1984 and 1985, emerged from the Aryan Nation¾a right-wing, white supremacist organization that advocates a white supremacist nation in North America. Citizens in the United States have a right to their beliefs and to express those beliefs even if they advocate creating a new nation within the boundaries of the United States.
    However, recent history proves there is always a possibility that a few extremists may be attracted to these causes, left and right, who decide to use terrorist tactics to achieve their goals. The challenge to law enforcement and security is not to interfere with the rights of
    individuals to express their beliefs while also providing a means for the early
    identification of extremists who are planning criminal actions.


    The article goes on and is a good read, but describes both left and right extremism

    The bottom line is that Right Wing extremists are "In Vouge" right now, but there still remains wackos on all sides.
