You really can't blame Boaz. He is just a typical product of an increasingly militarized mentality that has been gripping this country for the past 20 years.
This mentality indoctrinates within the dominant factions in America (mostly white conservative christians) that THEY are the ones who are actually oppressed. It instills a persecution mindset that breeds a "bunker mentality", keeping them on a constant war footing that makes them quite willing to overlook increasingly fascist measures done in their name to perpetuate and expand their power- all in the name of "freedom".
It has worked effectively in Israel and now it is taking root here. In fact, the model IS Israel.
