One of the most interesting facets of what I would call the New Right in this country is the fear of and opposition to the police by people who call themselves conservatives. In the past, it was liberals who were screw the pigs! and conservatives that automatically supported police authority, and they still do to a certain extent (God bless our troops and first responders!!!), but in the sixties, you would never have seen government agents called jack-booted thugs the way the ones at the Bundy Ranch standoff were, by the right and the right-wing media. Did it start with Waco, and has that kind of Ruby Ridge, separatist mentality just taken 20 years to seep into the mainstream of conservatism? Oh, but if its about black people, the police are still always in the right: see Mike Brown had it coming!!!!
