Think Progress reminds us that the Obama administration warned of increased threats of violence among right-wing fringe extremists groups back in 2009. Republicans predictably went ballistic. Here's John "Orange Julius" Boehner complaining about the report soon after its release:
[T]he Secretary of Homeland Security owes the American people an explanation for why she has abandoned using the term ‘terrorist’ to describe those, such as al Qaeda, who are plotting overseas to kill innocent Americans, while her own Department is using the same term to describe American citizens who disagree with the direction Washington Democrats are taking our nation.
Wade Michael Page was a fringe conservative. He was a domestic terrorist. John Boehner was wrong, but he'll never apologize.
