I agree with WS on this. Here in Ohio the militia types toy with a lot of crackpot theories, but don't seem, for the most part, to be convinced ideoological antisemite protofascist conspiracy nuts. They are angfry and alienated and need a vocabulary to express their rage,w hich they lack. If you listen to them for a while, they won't even flip out if you are you're a socialist, as long as you explain that means for you taht ordinary people should run the government and stop the big corporations from exploiting you. They are sort of fixated on the subject of guns, though, and if you say that their AR 15s won't domuch good against the 101st Airborne, they tend to say that the Vietnamese beat the US Army with AK 47s. You hear this from Vietnam Vets, bitterly. There are Black Ohio Militiamen and women.
