It should be obvious by now that Donald Trump is taking the United States to a very bad place.
And that the bigoted demagogue is stirring up ignorant and violent right-wing extremists all over that country.
As well as being a poster boy for Islamic terrorists.
So it should be no surprise that some of those crazy right-wingers are now acting like terrorists themselves.
A group of militiamen have occupied a wildlife refuge in Oregon, it has been reported. The group, who describe themselves as “patriots”, claim to have around 150 members stationed in the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, The Oregonian reports.
Their leader has reportedly informed local press that the men are planning to stay in the refuge indefinitely and are “willing to kill or be killed” to do so.
But it couldn't be more disturbing.

And since that looks and sounds like a video a suicide bomber might record before blowing himself up, it has some progressives wondering whether there is a double standard.
Or whether in a country where police can kill a 12-year-old kid armed only with a toy gun, those armed wingnuts aren't considered terrorists...
And what makes it even more disturbing, is that the same kind of right-wing crazies are also starting to make their presence felt in Canada.
Where Rachel Notley is under assault by redneck thugs who have been making death threats against her.
And are now apparently planning some kind of rally to try to overthrow her.
While at Ezra Levant's hate mongering site The Rebel, stories about Justin Trudeau attract comments like this one...
Which couldn't be more disgusting or less Canadian.
We know who lit the fires of hatred in this country...
And left others to put them out.
But the fires still burn, and enough is enough.
The police need to crack down on those Con crazies, those wannabe terrorists.
Before America's nightmare becomes our own...
