Die In Chains, Beast

"You want to see a monster, all you have to do is look in the mirror."

UPDATE: From Juan Cole--

"As his sister-in-law made clear, Rudolph is driven by the ideology of the "Christian Identity" hate group. Terry Nichols of the Oklahoma City bombing was likewise connected to Christian identity and their "Elohim City".
Of course, you won't see the headline above in American newspapers, even though any Muslim who acts as Rudolph did would be called an "Islamic terrorist" (a particularly objectionable term because "Islamic" means "having to do with the Muslim faith). It is like talking about "terrorism rooted in Christianity."
Followed by sarcasm and crankiness. Oh, Juan, will you never learn? This is a Christian nation, founded on Christian principles, and that means shut up and stop trying to start trouble. After all, Rudolph is the guy who was hidden and protected by an entire town and plenty of comrades de coeur. He's practically an All-American boy!

Maybe they'll propose a holiday in his honor.
