Going by the booking photo, he seems to think it's all just a big joke. I hope that's the sort of thing they take into account when determining sentences.

And if it turns out to be a jury trial I hope a couple MAGAts on the jury don't let him walk. This mfer needs to go to prison and have his guns taken away.

He certainly looks punchable.

But whatabout all the firebombing of RNC offices!!

Both Sides Are Bad

The party of terrorism and violence will GoFundMe his expenses and applaud him as a Hero Of The Party
 
2021-10-03 11:52:22 AM  
Send him to Gitmo.
 
2021-10-03 12:37:38 PM  
The moron didn't even throw it. He placed it inside and waited for it to go boom, which it did not. Because that's not how Molotov cocktails work.

If these people weren't absolute morons, they'd be dangerous. Well, at least more dangerous.

Give Abbot a week or so to make it legal.

Officer Barrelroll: Give Abbot a week or so to make it legal.


Na, he'll just get pardoned because he was a first time offender and agreed to some kind of "evaluation" from his church.

It's still illegal for Undercover Antifas too.

Yep. It's the exact definition of terrorism.

White and Republican enough to avoid any real punishment, I expect.

It's already marginally legal.  If the cops, prosecutors, and judges are all MAGAts, there are all sorts of options for simply not enforcing the law when they like the way a particular law was broken.

In this case, though, looks like the FBI is involved and charges are laid, and there's national attention.  Still, only charged with arson and possession of a prohibited weapon.  Based on his actions, obvious intent and not trusting Texas, I'm not sure why they didn't hit him with federal terrorism charges.
 
2021-10-03 12:45:40 PM  
I bet it will be totally legal before too much longer.

Remember when Obama said, "I'm just trying to figure out whose ass to kick," regarding the BP oil spill?

Why are both sides so violent? And so very very equally?

What's The Cocktail of choice at a Communist Party?!

/Democrats aren't communist

He also allegedly left a note at the scene.

Did he etch it on a stone tablet or something? How do you leave a note at a firebombing?

Defendant was acting in self-defense, based upon his sincerely held religious belief he was in imminent danger from the libs.

Defendant's arrest will be expunged. Democrat Party is ordered to pay defendant's court costs and $100,000 in restitution.

B-b-b-but some rando took a shot at Scalise, so both sides are bad, Ivanka is President, and...

Yeah, no.

I'm reminded of manual giving the recipe for a molotov cocktail. "Soak a rag in gasoline and stuff it in the mouth. The bottle's mouth, not your own mouth."

But I think Abbie Hoffman wrote that, so it was a joke, kind of. Phrased humorously, but covering his bases.

Timothy McVeigh knew what he was doing....unfortunately. The military trains these mf'rs... I wonder what this coward's story is.

The Mango Menace's affirmation of stupid-as-OK criminality is global in the MAGA world.  I'm close to giving up hope that the MAGA world is actually rotting due to this pervasive criminality, though.

There needs to be video of rednecks at a bar in fits of rage with Tucker's face on the TV in frame to drive home the point of the direct causation of his show to their feelings and threats.

Then this video needs to be played on a loop.

Pants full of macaroni!!: I bet it will be totally legal before too much longer.


It may not be illegal but no way does this guy get any meaningful punishment. He's far too white.

Do you mean federal agents posing as antifa?

I'm curious about the mindset of people who try to bomb or burn political headquarters. That sort of action riles up the opposition. It's horrible optics for the bomber's side. It's behavior that is almost universally condemned. Pretty much a lose-lose proposition.
The offender is stupid, misdirected, and taking an action that's lazy and counterproductive. He needs mental health correction. Not the sort of guy that anybody wants on their side.

Community service at his church. He can teach bomb making like Jesus would have done.

Have you seen their side?  They don't want this guy because he acted before it was possible to get away with it, not because of what he did.

Pre 9/11 Story Bro: So there we all were drunk and in college.  I believe there was a couch fully alight in the street while the following takes place: Neighbor takes a square one gallon can of white gas and pokes a hole in the very bottom side but without taking the cap of. A nice big puddle forms. Guy lights the puddle with the can in the middle then shoots the can with a BB gun one time slightly above the hole he previously made. We were all lucky to survive the explosion.

Arson? How about charging the smug jerk with terrorism?

Maybe he used a permanent marker.

Well that kinda goes without saying.  Everything is ok if you're a Republican, nothing is ok if you're a democrat.

So -- more acts of terrorism by conservatives.

Got it.

On the bright side he didn't spray paint swastikas at the site as well.

Small victories when dealing with republican party members.

I have seen some irrational violent people who have poor impulse control and there's a lot of them. Nobody with a lick of sense wants them around.

"Damage to the building was minimized because the arsonist placed the incendiary device inside the office, instead of throwing it as Molotov cocktails are usually deployed"

How do f*** up a molotov cocktail??😅
