Occupy the Bastille

USA Today’s recent publication of a letter to the editor from Rich Latta of Austin, Texas has not gotten as much attention as seems warranted given his suggestion that “maybe [Occupy protestors] should take up their Second Amendment-sanctioned guns and storm Wall Street and our nation's capitals.”  It is unclear if Latta is a protestor himself, or just a supporter.  But a peek at his profile as a reviewer at Amazon.com gives some insight into his motives.  On the left side of the page under “Interests”:  
My personal obsession concerns exposing the fallicy [sic] and harm of deity-based religions. I believe our world can never hope to find peace until these religions are exposed and refuted by a courageous, truth-seeking public.
 Peace through atheism and violence against the aristocracy.  Didn’t the French already try that?
