Interesting article from a human, personal view of how one man's misfortune started a downward spiral for him into planning violence. It does not however, provide statistical demographic data that supports its headline. As I read the article, I saw several examples of individuals including McVeigh, which do not support the conclusion (McVeigh was born and raised in New York, hardly a bastion of right-wing-extremism, and carried out his attack in Oklahoma City, which is not in Kansas). The article has a full segment on the 6 Jan DC riot, but with just 7 of the 500 people coming from Kansas, I don't see how that supports the claim made in the title. Just a lot of unsupported claims throughout the article. Short on facts, long on scary hyperbole.
