People Catching Onto the Insanity of the Troofers

James posted a little below the video where Glenn Beck compares the Troofers to Timothy McVeigh. I have commented in the past about how the more radical contingent, like the We Are Change WACs, remind me of the Weather Underground.

Reviewing the kooks' performance last week on Bill Maher's show, Dave Nalle hits the same theme:

As they marginalize themselves more and more with their ridiculous claims and increasingly outrageous behavior, I'm afraid we can expect to see more and more desperate and extreme attention-seeking behavior. That's the pattern of the kind of narcissistic mindset which drives conspiracy fanatics. It's even believable that in the ultimate irony, as they retreat into a world of paranoia and frustration, the 9/11 conspiracy fanatics might themselves turn to violent terrorism to get the attention they so desperately crave. It's easy to laugh at the conspiracists, but it's a grim truth that someone protesting Bill Maher this week might be the next Timothy McVeigh or Ted Kaczynski a few frustrated and ignored years down the road.
