From yesterday's New York Times we learned that an Ohio man who shot and killed two Arkansas state troopers "had antigovernment views." The evidence for this? He was upset over having been stopped by state police in New Mexico--they demanded to see his identification.
"I ran into a Nazi checkpoint in the middle of New Mexico where they were demanding papers or jail," he said. "That was the option. Either produce your papers or go to jail. So I entered into commerce with them under threat, duress and coercion, and spent 47 hours in there."
I wonder, then, whether those who have been outspoken in their criticism of the Arizona illegal alien law could be classified holding "antigovernment" views? Is Luis Gutierrez an antigovernment activist? Or is the media using "antigovernment" as a code word for "conservative"?
