Too bad you had to finish the book to realize


it was "total bullshit". Glad you saw it as such.
You certainly can claim there are radicals on both sides. But you cannot be serious if you think the threat of violence emanates equally from both groups. Unless you want to go back to the Weathermen or the University of Wisconsin math building bombing many decades ago, it is not the libs that do the violence. Oklahoma City, Eric Rudolf and other anti-abortion activists, the shooting at the Holocaust Museum in DC. and others were not liberals. These are people that killed for ideological reasons.

You could argue that liberals can go haywire and kill people. I think I heard that the Aurora theater shooter was a Democrat. But when it comes to killing for political reasons the cons seem securely in the lead.

Regarding Coonts, INTRUDER was not a well thought of movie--I don't know about the book. But your synopsis indicates he is courting the most radical elements on the right either because he believes this crap or he wants to make a bundle off the deplorables.

For the most part, NBOT is not full of hate as you describe. Both sides are pissed off at the others politics but I don't see hate at the personal level.
