Go read this, and follow its links.
These are very dangerous, very despicable people. Absolute lunatics.
You may care to know I left this comment there:
"There was actually a deliberate search for an enemy"
Way back in 1990, I wrote that "Conservatives without looming enemies to fear mightily and battle manfully (the word is chosen deliberately) are a lost and sorry lot."
Nothing has changed.

Always needing enemies is the same observation that Eric Hoffer had about true believers.

There was a short series of documentaries on this over here in the UK by the BBC a couple of years back - well worth catching if you can (don't know if it's available on video): THE POWER OF NIGHTMARES, http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/3755686.stm
