The Violence Continues

Just to keep the record complete, although I am sick of these stories, TPM reports:

"Roger Stockham, a 63-year-old Army veteran from California who was reportedly angry at the U.S. government, was arrested by police in Michigan and charged with allegedly threatening to blow up a Mosque in Dearborn."

Of course, the right wingers, who will scream bloody murder if you suggest that an army veteran who was going to blow up a mosque might be a conservative, are already blaring away that he is a Bush-hating liberal.

And here, I thought liberals were all in cahoots with the Muslims.

He had M-80's. I guess he was no Time Square Bomber,a 1993 WTC bomber or a hijacker of planes killing 3000 or a Major Nadal Hussein. Just saying.

You don't bother to mention that he had a very large number of them, and the police regard this as a serious threat which could have done a great deal of damage.

But of course, you will even throw the police to the dogs if their actions stand in the way of your sick narrative.

look who's talking about "narrative"

I am sure you would be just as upset if he were going to bomb a church right?
You would probably find justification in it.

He wasn't going to bomb a church, Anonymous.

I would be upset if he were going to bomb a 7-11. I'm not a fan of bombing, really. But in my lifetime, I can't remember much in the way of church bombing in this country except White racists bombing Black churches. That sort of thing really upsets me.

Here are a couple of examples:

Those bombers were your guys, Anonymous. You'll find them listed on Google among a whole bunch of stories about Egyptian church bombings. That provides a pretty good clue, I think, about who is really like Islamists.

Yes, as we know God is always on the side of the bombers, er, Christian bombers. It's a tradition going all the way back to the "Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch". "Three shall be the count, neither 2 nor 4."
