Right Wing Terror Strikes Again

From Little Green Footballs:

"Raymond Franklin Peake III told investigators that “he would kill to defend his country and he was stealing weapons to defend his country,” court documents read.

The Hampden Township man is in Cumberland County Prison without bail after being charged with homicide Saturday. Police said one of the weapons Peake, 64, stole resulted in the July 21 shooting death of lawyer Todd Getgen, 42, of Enola....

Peake told police he had been stealing guns for an organization that is collecting firearms to overthrow the federal government, court documents say. Peake also told police that he and Tuso (an arrested collaborator with Peake- G.E.) are members of the organization, but refused to give its name."

What, you mean the Lunatic Assholes of America? No wonder they didn't want to give its name.

Well, here we go, another specimen of right wing terrorism in the United States. It seems like we have one of these things every week or two these days. I don't ever remember that sort of thing happening all the time before a black Democrat won the White House. Of course, like all of the others, this one will be virtually ignored by the press and vanish from the collective consciousness without a trace, thereby helping bring closer the day when these guys manage to kill a really spectacular number of people. And then, do you think the government will spend a couple of trillion hunting them down, killing all of their "Christian" associates as fast as they can? I don't think so, not with the stranglehold the Republican party has on any kind of decent behavior by our elected officials.

Update: This just in:

"Both men worked as corrections officers at the Pennsylvania Correctional Institution at Camp Hill. Following their arrests, they've been suspended without pay."

Well, that'll teach them.

The right wing racist terrorists have been threatening violence louder and louder and with more and more overt actions and we've become so inured to their bloody rhetoric I hope we aren't taken unaware when the Tea Baggers launch an insurrection and begin murdering and raping anyone they deem a socialist...

Of course, they set up a chorus of wailing and shouting every time the government does try to prepare for their infantile tantrums that it's likely that you are right.
