The right wing's vitriol against the government is not new, and probably goes back to the Whiskey rebellion, but the way that the GOP and Fox News/talk radio have decided to profit from this hatred is new.

Hard for them to be surprised at every turn when people take that rhetoric to its logical conclusion and decide to kill someone.
