Meh, this kind of thing has always existed in America, and at times it has been far worse than it is now. It will likely always exist in America. In nearly every country on earth, it's worse. I'm not terribly worried about Vento's followers mobilizing, politicizing, becoming emperor, dissolving the senate, and blowing up Alderaan. Though while remaining vague, there are some people lately who have made me go "hmmm."
