Driving between work efforts this morning I had the radio on and heard some of Glen Beck's show. (I'm not a huge fan of his, but sometimes he gets it right and that's good for folks to hear).
Anyway, between about 9:35 and 9:45 or so he had a segment where he essentially said what you've termed a "No Fort Sumter" approach.
In essence, he said that Obama et al learned from the 60s radicals and the Howard Piven types what works and what doesn't. They needed to institute their Revolution from the inside, once they had become "The Man" from their past. Thus they would collapse the government/society/culture, but collapse it onto THEIR infrastructure.
OK, nothing too new here so far. However, he pointed out that the failing of the 60s bomb throwers was that American society as a whole did not approve of their violence, hence they were easily cast as negative loonies and marginalized. "Americans do not stand by people who are violent" The media could paint them as fools to be disdained.
Therefore, Beck pointed out that the Obama folks now want US to react violently to the Health Care followed by Immigration followed by whatever is next series of attacks. They WANT us to be the William Ayers 60s bomb throwers, they WANT us to lash out so that they can marginalize us, with their lapdog media. (Beck thinks that Americans have disdain for ALL violence, which may be a miscalculation based on the motive, but that will remain to be seen.)
Hence he warns that Obama and the media want to paint us as Nixon and the media did for the 60s radicals.
He is supposed to have his 5pm FOX News show focus on this today. It may be educational in some ways. We'll see (well, not me as I'll be working and don't have cable anyway).
FWIW, this is just a general heads up. I think he's right in that they want us to "misbehave" to steal from Brown-coat Mr. Reynolds (Firefly/Serenity reference).
Thought you ought to know.
Keep your powder dry,
