When the Republican Party claims to be the party of inclusion, they are, in fact, right. The Republican party is the home of racist, bigoted fundamentalist Christians, survivalist, Tea Baggers, gun extremist, grumpy old men, homophobes, Islamophobes, white supremacist, people who deny the legitimacy of our first black President and militia groups preaching the violent overthrow of the government. Add in a political elite whose aim is benefiting the wealthy and big business, and you can't be more inclusive than that.
These groups are all a serious concern to the American ideal; but perhaps the greatest danger lost in this mix are the militias. They fly the American flag while preaching the overthrow of the government.
These groups are made of of soldier wannabees and ex-military who long for attention. These people are not the sharpest tacks in the box - they are easily influenced and easily manipulated. They are out of touch with reality and playing some imaginary scenario in their heads. The guns and uniforms make them feel macho and heroic - in their minds they are the glamorous Mad Maxs of the near future when they will stand against the U.S. government.
