The Moderate Voice has an intersesting post on the tragic murder of a census worker in Clay County, Kentucky. The point is that anti-government terrorism should not be defined too narrowly. When Michelle Bachman says crazy things about census workers, her audience isn’t just official Tea Party members, it’s all kinds of weirdos and nuts.
Undermining the legitimacy of the federal government and dehumanizing federal workers is, I fear, a message that spreads far can spread far and wide with deadly consequences.
Update. McArdle informs us teabaggers have no problem with the census.
