He was kicked out of a pro-Confederacy organization because he showed up at a Tupelo City Council meeting draped in the Confederate flag, and the organization felt that his wearing the flag like that was a “desecration”.
I am not sure which is more pit-worthy, that he bombed the Wal-Mart or that wearing a Confederate flag is considered desecration by these crazies.
Is there something in the air in the South? Are there increasing numbers of these crazy incidents, or are we simply hearing about them more? I can’t wrap my pea brain around someone bombing a store because it no longer sells a flag.
The legal system is as crazy as he, and as fucked up as he, if he gets life in prison. The bomb seems more of a squib.
Still, his nuttiest speech was: “…y’all are going down, along with Walmart, WTVA, Reeds department store, and all the rest of the anti-American crooks. I’m not kidding.”
Isn’t the essence of the Confederate Cause that it is wholly Anti-American ? I’m not even blaming them, and nor do I care about either side, but you don’t get to fight a large war against that you consider evil and then embrace that evil as one’s own rightful heritage.
Well, the breakaway nation was the Confederate States of America, and its constitution was a slightly-tweaked (and in some small cases, improved) version of the U.S. constitution, so it’s fair for a hardcore neo-Confederate to be pro-American, just not pro-USA, though I’m sure some of them manage to pull it off.
What punishment would, say, a radical-Islamist extremist get if he threw a homemade explosive device into a Wal-Mart to express his hatred for America and Westerners in general?
Terrorist violence is terrorist violence, no matter how much our society tends to defuse or dismiss terrorist violence committed by non-Muslim white people as isolated instances of “nuts” or “crazies” that needn’t be taken seriously.
Now, if you’re trying to argue that even violent terrorists are entitled to basic civil liberties and should not be subjected to, e.g., indefinite detention without trial or interrogation under torture, or possibly even to automatic life sentences, then I’m with you all the way. But if we’re going to be tough on terrorism then we need to be evenhandedly tough on all types of terrorists.
He is to be applauded for defending the country from tyranny. Other Second Amendment advocates just talk about it; he acts.
It should be clear that the 2nd Amendment, intended to defend us from Obama’s military, provides for the full range of necessary weapons: grenades, bazookas, tanks, fighter planes, etc., not just guns. If his was not a military-grade bomb we have only the gun-grabbing Kenyan to blame.
