Another right wing terrorist. How shocking.
 
2012-08-27 05:32:34 PM  
Raise your hand if you're utterly shocked by this development.

acorn, tree, etc.

no surprises here. with the hatespeech flowing from the GOP over the past four years, stuff like this was pretty much inevitable.

But they're not divisive and polarizing! That's the Demoncraps!

This story broke back in January, but nobody picked up on it until the trial started. "Liberal Media" my ass. This should be a HUGE story. A group with military training, an $87,000 collection of guns, a plan, and two murders on their hands already when they were busted.
 
2012-08-27 05:50:14 PM  
And this just conveniently comes out during the 2012 RNC? Liberal bias strikes again! No, not really. But I just wanna beat the Conservaderps to this theory.
 
2012-08-27 05:51:30 PM  
So this means John McCain has to go back to a POW camp and Keith Olbermann is automatically president, right?

2 reasons- One, a group of white christians goes against the "only Muslims are terrorists" meme, and two, the capture and trial of a terrorist group by Obamas justice department goes against the "Obama is weak on terrorists" meme.
 
2012-08-27 05:58:27 PM  
So John McCain and Sarah Palin palled around with terrorists?
 
2012-08-27 06:01:55 PM  
Napoleon did it first.

First Obama's hurricane machine narrowly misses the convention, now the LIE-bral media is running with an assassination plot involving an RNC page??? COINCIDENCE??? Wake up sheeple! Beck/Art Bell 2016!

Again, I'll repeat this from the Afghan soldiers killing each other thread...

This is the main reason the U.S. Army keeps the ammunition hidden away and secured until they hand it out in a controlled area or on the battlefield.

I remember having a conversation about "taking over" sh*t, when we were chilling with most of the platoon. The majority consensus was that we would turn on anyone who would want to do such a thing and kill them. Can't speak for Army-wide, but I assume that most people would resist unlawful orders.

Combat situation? Totally different animal. Sh*t happens in combat. Not a lot of clear thinking when you're emotional, tired from 48 hours awake. Lot of people were on amphetamines (adderall etc). That's human nature and it's why you never unleash your dogs of war unless you absolutely, positively have to.

Stateside? Yeah, I know about Kent state. However, I rest soundly in my bed at night with the knowledge that Private f*ckstick here would never come close to his ambitions. I doubt even a committed medium-size force could accomplish much without getting the total beatdown.

Army Command spends a lot of time trying to keep people moving and CID keeps an eye on this stuff. You'll have rogues, lone wolves and even small groups (Bragg was notorious for those types a few years back).

In short, this guy and his merry band should be placed against the wall and shot in the face. And, I don't even believe in the death penalty. Yet, here we are.
 
2012-08-27 06:20:01 PM  
I will let this slide. Unless he actually said something like "If we lose, I'll promise to kill Obama" back then.
 
2012-08-27 06:22:50 PM  
They should be hung in the town square and left swinging for a month.

Civilian control of the US military is so deeply embedded in our culture that it's fun to watch foreign officers ask our officers why the US military doesn't take over the US - because our officers are usually shocked at the very notion. Your reaction is typical among the navy officers with whom I worked.
 
2012-08-27 06:23:30 PM  
What do they have against apples? That's just the weirdest thing to target.
 
2012-08-27 06:24:26 PM  
But remember, the very suggestion that there are right-wing militias that include former military personnel in this country is downright offensive and treasonous, so vote Republican!
 
2012-08-27 06:24:45 PM  
The thing that scares me is that both sides are getting more and more extreme with their hatred for the other, and of course the party-line people are following suit.

It's just a matter of time before there's another American Revolution and we're all gunning down our neighbors for a half-gallon of gas and a pack of Camels.

But hey, Fartbongo and RMunny are the saviors of the world according to some people.

I remember that day, I wanted to walk down Selby ave (the cathedral neighborhood, which you can look down on the excel center) to check things out, then I saw all those anarchists farking shiat up on the news, the cops arresting everyone even in that part of town which is miles away. I stayed away.

Gosh, how convenient. Purely coinky dinky, no doubt. Move along........you there! IN the back, eyes up front! Move along...........

Knock it off. Right or left wing, a terrorist is a douche. I'm as liberal as they come, but I'm not sure right or left wing makes one more likely to go nuts and enact terrorist acts on people.
 
2012-08-27 06:25:43 PM  
Pretty ugly for a GOP page.

Disagree. When your whole platform is fear (the GOP), you make fearful people who look at 2nd amendment solutions (Sharron Angle) as viable.

That right there was $87,000 worth of REAL AMERICAN HIGHEST FORM OF PATRIOTIC! and don't you let anyone tell you otherwise, not no LIEbrul LAMEstream media, not no DIMoRAT talking head, and not no politician either! USA! USA! USA!

Yes both sides are equally bad and neither party is any better than the other. You must be so proud of yourself for being so smart and above it all.

Was it in 2008 that female reporter got the crap beaten out of her at the RNC? I seem to recognize that creep.

Why do I think this will get more coverage than the guy who tried to smuggle a machete into this year's Republican Convention?
