You should be ashamed of yourself," Popaditch tells Filner, leading the mob. Other Popaditch supporters yell "You're a scumbag!" "Jew!" and "Don't tread on me, Bob!"

The email expresses support for her view of the Second Amendment and says that to further "their cause...something big will happen at a government building in Broward County, maybe a post office maybe even a school."

December 3, 2010-At "Roe & Roeper's Miracle on Indianapolis Blvd. Holiday Extravaganza" promoting "Toys 4 Tots" in Chicago, Illinois, actor R. Lee Emery (famous for his depiction of Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in "Full Metal Jacket") tells those in attendance, "The economy really sucks. Now I hate to point fingers at anybody, but the present administration probably has a lot to do with that. And the way I see it, they're not gonna quit doing it until they bring this country to its knees. So I think we should all rise up and we should stop this administration from what they're doing because they're destroying this country. They're driving us into bankruptcy so that they can impose socialism on us."

December 31, 2010-An anonymous threat is posted in the "Rants and Raves" section of the Anchorage Craigslist against Andree McLeod, a citizen activist who has requested-under Alaska's Open Records Act-work-related emails that Sarah Palin sent and received while governor of the state. The threat states, "I think Andre has used up to much oxygen. So I have my scope cross hair on her head! She better watch out, the request may have been her last." The Anchorage Police trace the message to the AOL account of an Anchorage woman in her 50s, but neglect to verify if she is the one who is responsible for it.

January 6, 2011-John Troy Davis, 44, is arrested after threatening to set fire to the office of Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) and shoot members of his staff. The threat comes when Davis calls Bennet's office to complain about his Social Security benefits, telling a staffer that he is schizophrenic and "may go to terrorism."

Loughner has an extensive history of mental illness and substance abuse, yet is able to purchase two handguns and a high-capacity ammunition magazine legally at Sportsman's Warehouse on November 30, 2010. In a YouTube video posted in December 2010, Loughner states, "You don't have to accept the federalist laws ... Nonetheless, read the United States of America's Constitution to apprehend all of the current treasonous laws."

January 8, 2011-Fearing violence from tea party activists, Arizona Legislative District 20 Republican Chairman Anthony Miller, Secretary Sophia Johnson, First Vice Chairman Roger Dickinson, and former district spokesman Jeff Kolb resign from their positions. "I don't want to take a bullet for anyone," says Miller, who cites verbal attacks and threatening blog posts from tea party members upset with the fact that he is a former campaign worker for U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). Miller also reports an incident in which a detractor made his hand into the shape of a gun and pointed it at him.

January 12, 2011-Charles Turner Habermann, 32, is arrested and charged with threatening a federal official after leaving a series of disturbing voicemails for U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA) on December 9, 2010. Habermann, enraged by comments that McDermott made opposing tax cuts for the rich, says, "Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, or George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, if any of them had ever met Jim McDermott they would all blow his brains out. They'd shoot him in the head. They'd kill him, because he's a piece of disgusting garbage." Habermann tells McDermott's staff, "You let that [expletive] scumbag know, that if he ever [expletive] with my money, ever the [expletive] again, I'll [expletive] kill him, okay. I'll round them up, I'll kill them, I'll kill his friends, I'll kill his family, I will kill everybody he [expletive] knows."

January 12, 2011-After a report by the Columbia Free Times, Palmetto State Armory removes an advertisement from its website for a personalized assault rifle accessory. "Palmetto State Armory would like to honor our esteemed congressman Joe Wilson with the release of our new 'You Lie' AR-15 lower receiver," the ad reads. A picture of Wilson holding a rifle and standing in the company's gun shop appears on the same webpage. The ad refers to an incident in September 2009 when Wilson disrupted a speech by President Barack Obama in the U.S. Capitol and claimed that impending health care reform legislation would not provide coverage for undocumented immigrants.

January 22, 2011-Writing on his blog "Red State," CNN commentator Erick Erickson states, "We will not endorse any candidate who will not reject the judicial usurpation of Roe v. Wade and affirm that the unborn are no less entitled to a right to live simply because of their size or their physical location ... The reason for this is simple: once before, our nation was forced to repudiate the Supreme Court with mass bloodshed. We remain steadfast in our belief that this will not be necessary again, but only if those committed to justice do not waiver or compromise, and send a clear and unmistakable signal to their elected officials of what must be necessary to earn our support."

January 24, 2011-The National Rifle Association (NRA) posts an editorial from the Washington Examiner on its website entitled "Second Amendment is Insurance Against Government Tyranny." The piece states, "Gun control legislation is back after the Tucson tragedy. Congress must confront the reality that the courts have declared two reasons for the Second Amendment right to bear arms. One is self defense, and the other-whether you like it or not-is enabling the American people to resist tyranny."

January 25, 2011-Former U.S. Representative Jay Dickey (R-AR), who introduced a National Rifle Association-drafted amendment that stripped $2.6 million from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) budget for firearms-related research in 1996, tells the New York Times that he did so because, "We have the right to bear arms because of the threat of government taking over the freedoms that we have."

January 27, 2011-The New American publishes an article entitled "Arizona Shooting & the Assault on Rights" which states: "The ready availability of guns is no more responsible for this or any other such massacre than an all-you-can-eat buffet is responsible for obesity ... More to the point is the fact that the government of the United States is a creation of the people of the United States in whom resides the natural right of sovereignty. An integral and unalienable element of that absolute right is the right of self-defense. It is logically impossible that a creature can proscribe the rights of the creator. It is for this reason that defenders of the right to bear arms need neither compromise nor capitulate to those committed to eroding that right."

February 4, 2011-Montana Rep. Wendy Warburton (R-Havre) introduces legislation to allow state residents to organize armed units called "home guards" that would answer to the governor and sheriffs during emergenices. These paramilitary groups would be formed into "infantry companies" with their own uniforms, flags, and identities, and would not be subject to federal oversight or control. In commenting on the legislation, Gary Marbut of the Montana Shooting Sports Association says, "The question here is where that slider is located on that range between anarchy and tyranny. We'd like to nudge it back a little toward anarchy."

February 5, 2011-During a speech at a Cullman County Republican Party breakfast, Alabama Sen. Scott Beason (R-Gardendale) rails against illegal immigrants and "big government" Democrats and calls on Republicans to "empty the clip, and do what has to be done."

February 6, 2011-The Minnesota Republican Party mails out a campaign brochure for state legislative candidate Paul Jacobson that depicts a hunter looking down a shotgun's sights while urging voters to "take your best shot." The brochure singles out and criticizes Jacobson's opponent in the race, Democrat Carly Melin, calling her a "fake" and stating her campaign is "full of holes." Her photo is included in the brochure.

February 22, 2011-A participant at a town hall meeting hosted by U.S. Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) asks the Congressman, "Who is going to shoot Obama?" After a great deal of laughter, another man in the audience states, "We all want to." There is more laughter. After the laughter dies down, Rep. Broun then responds, "Next question." There is more laughter. The Congressman offers no additional comments on the question.

February 23, 2011-The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) reports that the number of hate groups in the United States has topped 1,000 for the first time since SPLC began counting such groups in the 1980s. According to the report: "By far the most dramatic growth came in the antigovernment "Patriot" movement-conspiracy-minded organizations that see the federal government as their primary enemy-which gained more than 300 new groups [in 2010], a jump of over 60%."

March 1, 2011-Texas Woman's University is locked down after a 30-year-old student, Christopher Alan Gillette, makes a "terroristic threat" concerning personal grievances with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The lockdown occurs after Gillette talks about riding through the streets of Washington, D.C. in a pick-up truck with an AK-47 assault rifle during a history and government class. Denton Police Department officers detain and arrest Gillette soon after in the parking lot of a VA facility in Dallas. A undated letter that Gillette wrote to U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Lewisville) is released in which Gillette announced, "I will begin preparations to begin offensive combat preparations against the federal government." In the letter, Gillette also embraced a conspiracy theory promoted by the National Rifle Association (NRA) about the mass confiscation of private firearms in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.

March 10, 2011-Schaeffer Cox, the 26-year-old leader of the Second Amendment Task Force and the Alaska Peacemakers Militia is arrested along with four of his followers and charged with conspiracy to commit murder, kidnapping, and arson. The group had stockpiled firearms and munitions and was planning to kill multiple Alaska State Troopers and a federal judge. Cox had previously made overt threats against the government, bragging, "We've got them outmanned and outgunned." He claimed he told one judge, "I don't want to put my influence to the test while the lives of you and your children are on the line." Cox believed the U.S. government was "sliding into tyranny, a police state."

omeganuepsilon: Sgt Otter: Eh, if it's anything like a military exercise, motive or who the Opposing Force is doesn't really concern you. OPFOR is OPFOR. They're doing something bad, you try to stop them, minimize collateral damage, and try not to get "killed" in the process. Doesn't matter if they're fake Russians, fake Al Qaida, fake Neo-Nazis, or fake Imperial Sardaukar.

But when it's a "fake" neighbor, who's description and motives(atleast on the surface) are strikingly similar to an actual neighbor.

A southern state's plan for a historical reinactment...

OK, now all the black people go stand over there and pretend to pick fake cotton. All the white people stand around, occassionally use your fake whip, or fake rape a one of the people picking fake cotton. Rehearse plenty, we do it for real tomorrow *chuckles*

I'm sure any hostorical society would positively SWELL with funding after that reinactment....IF they could get a single willing particpant.


Yeah, there are just some idea's better never committed to paper.

There are just some idea's [sic] what?

You won't find out because they'll be disguised as Harkonnen troops.

2011-03-25 09:23:55 AM

ib_thinkin: fracto73: keylock71: SubBass49: Yeah...because we know that anti-immigration White folks never seek to do violence towards brown folks...

I'll just leave this here and weep a bit...

Don't know if I really want to know... but what's the story behind that?


Some minute men shot up a family that they mistakenly thought were drug dealers, and killed their 9 year old girl, so that they could take their money to fund more violence against latinos.

In fairness to the Minutemen organization, NPR reported that these guys were shunned by most Minutemen.

They went after the family not only because they thought the family was a group of evil, drug-selling Mexicans, but also because they wanted to take the drugs and sell them to get money to fight other evil, drug-selling Mexicans.

The irony was lost to them.

/dontcha think?



They say that they oppose action like Forde's. I don't see the shunning before the incident, do you have a link?

More Violence (new window)

keylock71: Fair enough, though it's not unlikely at all that a white supremacist group would carry out the same type of bullshiat in the name of race... and they've made many references to the incidents you've listed in their own literature. The Turner Diaries is quite racist and hailed by many white supremacists as a "field manual".


I think the problem is that like most of us, you see "The Turner Diaries" as a racist polemic, which it is, but when you relate it to McVeigh, you have to look at it within the proper context: His reading "The Turner Diaries" informs us as to his means of committing his crime, not his motivation for committing it in the first place.

In fact, McVeigh is on record as saying that had "Unintended Consequences" by John Ross been available *BEFORE* he committed the bombing (it was published in 1996), he probably would have followed that as a template instead. In UC, the protagonists assassinate ATF agents and selected anti-gun politicians instead of bombing a federal building.

I think that McVeigh liking The Turner Diaries is a potential trap for people who see that and automatically think the motivation was racist. It wasn't. His motivation was strictly related to gun control, how he felt the government was treating gun owners, and revenge for Waco and Ruby Ridge.

I find the mere existence of white supremecist nativist groups in North America a bit bemusing.

One dreams of the day they can awake with absolute historical persepective, realize their own hyporcrisy, pick themselves by the collar, and throw themselves back over to Scandinavia and Europe.

SharkTrager: Let's be honest. The scenario was set up to use a group they knew they could get away with offending.


I don't see how that's honest. If you're going to set up a terrorist scenario in Iowa, I'd say your options are pretty limited. Would you prefer radical Grangers are blowing up railroad trestles?
 
2011-03-25 09:31:13 AM

dittybopper: keylock71: dittybopper: Unlikely scenario is highly unlikely, because the motivations that drove McVeigh essentially don't exist anymore: Ruby Ridge and Waco were around 20 years ago, and we've been winning on the gun control side, with Heller and McDonald representing *MAJOR* wins for gun rights advocates. AWB has expired, and there isn't a major gun control initiative on the horizon.

So white supremacists have no other motivation these days other than "gun rights"?

Ah, but McVeigh wasn't a white supremacist. .


In what parallel universe is a Christian Identity adherent not a white supremacist?

That didn't make a bit of sense. They aren't one bit nativist in the sense you are thinking. They have an idea of what they would like "their" hypothetical country to be like, some imagine it was at one point like they idealize it (and it wasn't ever like that, especially because white trash were no better than brown trash in the slavery days and a lot of whites were indentured/slaves), and want to fix their ideal in time after they achieve it.

That isn't nativist one bit. If you want to go with the OH NOES THE NEO NACHOS angle, the Nazi ideology was a lot about the master race conquering the world and not that much about returning to their "roots".

Either way, I don't think you thought about this as much as you think you did. No offense, considering your gig here and all...

Mock26: TsukasaK: Mock26: When the race war comes I am going to put my money on the dwarves. Sure, the drow are pretty damn powerful but those dwarves are tenacious and resistant to magic.

They're a hell of a shot with a bow & arrow though.

True, but in the confines of the Underdark bows are not all that great of a weapon.


huh, drow are more resistance to magic than dwarfs. I'd put my money on the svirfneblin though.

Then why didn't he bother to put a license plate on his car? I think you're going through a lot of trouble to ignore the commonalities and membership overlap there is within white identity, christian identity, nationalist, and militia movements.

Yeah, there are just some idea's better never committed to paper.

True story: There was a history professor at my alma mater who at some point while working on her PhD went to the church that's very connected to the League of the South. Presumably, this was before the League of the South ended up on the SPLC's hate group list when they stuck to romanticizing the South and holding a big "southern ball" every year, where everybody would dress up in period garb and pretend they were wealthy southern plantation owners. Anyway, this professor, who is African-American, was told that if she and her husband wanted to participate in the ball, they'd have to dress up as slaves, "to be historically accurate."

Yep, they told a highly educated academic that she couldn't come to their event dressed as anything other than a slave. And this would have been late '90s/early '00s

Actually sounds familiar, but yeah, that's farked up. That was my point.

I can understand wanting the ball, beautiful costumes, articulate southern speech can be sexy. Meet that criteria and anyone can join in. No Mohawks, no skater shoes, etc. Such is life in the south though, farking inbred ingrates anyhow. Not allowed to kill em, and they won't let you get along with them. Should box all of them up and put them on an island somewhere, preferably very cold, and very very small.

_____________

Accurate or believable, if people perceive such an offense at a funded/public event, it simply shouldn't be done at all, or altered to please.

You don't need in depth back story and character motivation to practice evacuations and hospital runs. farking stupid.

How hard is it to come up with some sort of event without being a controversial dickwad? Took me like 3 seconds to think of a sort of Red Dawn scenerio scenario that wouldn't offend anyone.

And for all you farks saying "oh and it would be ok if it were brown people?" you're just as bad and vehement [huh?] as actual racists that you try to make everyone else out to be even though you really have no idea how they feel.

The thought that it could be done without offending anyone didn't even cross your simple yet hate-filled minds.

fark off and die.


It might offend the local high school kids that you brand as terrorists. You do remember that the terrorists were the good guys in that movie, right?

Right?

You might want to stick a paragraph in between your sentence ending "simple yet hate-filled minds" and the sentence "fark off and die": it just makes your asinine dickitude (my word) jump right off the page.

Wendy's Chili, you are going to have to do better than to cut and paste from an obviously biased source like the Coalition to Prevent Gun Ownership.

For instance, they add in Jared Lee Loughner:

January 8, 2011-Jared Lee Loughner, 22, shoots U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) and 19 others at a "Congress in Your Corner" event at a Safeway supermarket in Tucson, Arizona. He kills six, including federal judge John Roll, and wounds 14, including Giffords, who is shot in the head. Loughner has an extensive history of mental illness and substance abuse, yet is able to purchase two handguns and a high-capacity ammunition magazine legally at Sportsman's Warehouse on November 30, 2010. In a YouTube video posted in December 2010, Loughner states, "You don't have to accept the federalist laws ... Nonetheless, read the United States of America's Constitution to apprehend all of the current treasonous laws."

when it's well known that his motivation wasn't racial, nor insurrectionist, but because he had an obsession with Giffords, and to the extent that he had a political ideology, it was more to the left than the right. If he was to the right, then shooting Giffords would be exceptionally stupid because she is a blue dog Democrat.

I don't have the time to research every last one of those things you copypasta'd, but given the source and the fact that at least one of them is way off base, I'm pretty confident that I can ignore the rest.

Oh, and while you're slobbing on Josh's knob, tell him I said "Hi".

dittybopper: keylock71: Fair enough, though it's not unlikely at all that a white supremacist group would carry out the same type of bullshiat in the name of race... and they've made many references to the incidents you've listed in their own literature. The Turner Diaries is quite racist and hailed by many white supremacists as a "field manual".

I think the problem is that like most of us, you see "The Turner Diaries" as a racist polemic, which it is, but when you relate it to McVeigh, you have to look at it within the proper context: His reading "The Turner Diaries" informs us as to his means of committing his crime, not his motivation for committing it in the first place.

In fact, McVeigh is on record as saying that had "Unintended Consequences" by John Ross been available *BEFORE* he committed the bombing (it was published in 1996), he probably would have followed that as a template instead. In UC, the protagonists assassinate ATF agents and selected anti-gun politicians instead of bombing a federal building.

I think that McVeigh liking The Turner Diaries is a potential trap for people who see that and automatically think the motivation was racist. It wasn't. His motivation was strictly related to gun control, how he felt the government was treating gun owners, and revenge for Waco and Ruby Ridge.


That's all well and good, but McVeigh's been taking a dirt nap for a while now.

I'm saying it isn't unlikely at all that a white supremacist group would carry out the same kind of attack using the same reference material. Therefor, it's not some flight of fancy to prepare for such an incident, particularly in an area where there are quite a few white power or separatist groups operating.

I wonder if there are any white supremecists who happen to also be molecular biologists?

Well, yeah, ignoring the reliance on the primal brain for judgement instead of rational thought, hear me out...

I wonder due to the simple fact that every single person on this planet is the descendant of peoples who would be described as "North African" racially.

I live in the general vicinity of this (eastern SD). This is a completely plausible scenario. It is highly unlikely that this region is going to be hit by a terrorist attack. We don't have any major assets and the population density is rather low.

The area is chuck full of crazy xtian fundamentalist, tax protesters, anti-govt nuts and straight up racists. All of them openly hostile to anyone not of their ilk. They are what makes up the teabaggers and minutemen groups out here. I know a few of these types locally. They went from offensive and crazy to really offensive, aggressive and outright a potential danger to other people. You take someone who already has major anti-social tendencies and tell them it is a war and they are under attack and then tend to really go off the deep end.

In your clear need to rationalize perhaps. It says pretty clearly he was a crazy person with anti-government sentiments. Which is all true. His 'obsession' with Giffords is manifest in that.

So then, you just said this was a really bad idea, didn't you?

While we're being honest, Iowa doesn't exactly suffer from a surplus of Muslim fundamentalists, black supremacists or Basque separatists from that matter. They're training for what seems to be a plausible emergency in Davenport.

fracto73: ib_thinkin: fracto73: keylock71: SubBass49: Yeah...because we know that anti-immigration White folks never seek to do violence towards brown folks...

I'll just leave this here and weep a bit...

Don't know if I really want to know... but what's the story behind that?


Some minute men shot up a family that they mistakenly thought were drug dealers, and killed their 9 year old girl, so that they could take their money to fund more violence against latinos.

In fairness to the Minutemen organization, NPR reported that these guys were shunned by most Minutemen.

They went after the family not only because they thought the family was a group of evil, drug-selling Mexicans, but also because they wanted to take the drugs and sell them to get money to fight other evil, drug-selling Mexicans.

The irony was lost to them.

/dontcha think?


They say that they oppose action like Forde's. I don't see the shunning before the incident, do you have a link?

More Violence (new window)


Heard it in a podcast, so I don't. Some searching got me to a link to the NYT on an NPR story. Might have been an interview with the author or something.

So you found one incident in a list of, I dunno, a hundred or so, and discounted it for debatable reasons, so the rest don't count. Gotcha.

OK, now all the black people go stand over there and pretend to pick fake cotton. All the white people stand around, occassionally use your fake whip, or fake rape a one of the people picking fake cotton. Rehearse plenty, we do it for real tomorrow *chuckles*

I'm sure any hostorical society would positively SWELL with funding after that reinactment....IF they could get a single willing particpant.


Yeah, there are just some idea's better never committed to paper.

True story: There was a history professor at my alma mater who at some point while working on her PhD went to the church that's very connected to the League of the South. Presumably, this was before the League of the South ended up on the SPLC's hate group list when they stuck to romanticizing the South and holding a big "southern ball" every year, where everybody would dress up in period garb and pretend they were wealthy southern plantation owners. Anyway, this professor, who is African-American, was told that if she and her husband wanted to participate in the ball, they'd have to dress up as slaves, "to be historically accurate."

Yep, they told a highly educated academic that she couldn't come to their event dressed as anything other than a slave. And this would have been late '90s/early '00s

DarnoKonrad: dittybopper: His motivation was strictly related to gun control

Then why didn't he bother to put a license plate on his car? I think you're going through a lot of trouble to ignore the commonalities and membership overlap there is within white identity, christian identity, nationalist, and militia movements.


Because he wanted to get caught.

If he didn't get caught, no one would know the motivation for the bombing. He didn't want to get caught by federal law enforcement, and probably would have gone down shooting if he had been stopped by the FBI (who he blamed for Ruby Ridge and Waco). The FBI doesn't enforce traffic laws, however. He was driving a car without a license plate, despite the fact that he could have put one on the car, even if it was a stolen plate. He had the opportunity to do so. He was carrying a gun on his person, even though he knew it was illegal for him to do so in Oklahoma.

McVeigh didn't have a problem with state laws about licensing vehicles. To say that he didn't have a license plate on his car shows that he thought of himself as some kind of "sovereign citizen" is ludicrous. He willingly submitted to Trooper Hanger's authority when he could have just shot him and kept on going, and because there wasn't a plate on his vehicle, there would have been zero evidence that could have been used to track him down.

Also, think about all the stuff he had on him when he was caught, all pointing to his motivation for the bombing. None of it was racially based. Even the photocopied excerpt from The Turner Diaries was about bombing an FBI building.

Again, I'm not arguing that McVeigh wasn't bigoted, just that it wasn't part of his motivation for the bombing. Gun control and what he perceived as over-reaching by the Federal Government were his motivations, but it was mainly revenge for Ruby Ridge and Waco.

*The only thing that might be tangentially racially based is the the quote on the front of his t-shirt, "sic semper tyrannus", which was yelled by John Wilkes Booth when he assassinated Lincoln, but the other side has the Jefferson quote about refreshing the tree of liberty with the blood of tyrants, so that's really a wash.

keylock71: Well maybe white supremacists should stop acting like domestic terrorists if they don't want to be the target of the federal government.

But who are they kidding? That's exactly what those yahoos want... it confirms their persecution complexes and their belief in a coming "race war".

I have no problem with the federal government coming down on these idiots like a ton of bricks if they step out of line.

There was a Klan presence in several Iowa cities in the 1920's. I lived in there for awhile and knew a hispanic family who had moved from the southwest and had been Americans for as long as their home had been U.S. territory and presumably had lived there for centuries before that. They were discriminated against by people whose families had benn in the country for maybe 75 years. Those same Norwegian and German infiltraters would routinely run Amish wagons off the road risking lives in the process. America, the land of Hatriotism.
