More Right-Wing Violence

1 Comment

I just wrote another post of right-wing violence by white men the other day.  Then yesterday, I saw another disgusting example, and this one has distinct political overtones.

One of the leaders of the tea-baggers was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly raping a 7-year-old girl, who could be a close family member.  How freaking lovely are these characters?

Does anybody want to take a guess what police found while searching his home?  If you’ve read anything about right-wing violence in the past couple of years, it’s not hard to guess correctly.

A Colt M-203, 40-mm grenade launcher.  Bomb-sniffing dogs also indicated that explosives had been stored in his house recently, though it doesn’t look like the search turned up anything.

These clowns are calling themselves patriots and everyone else traitors.  These are the outstanding members of our society who are stocking up on guns (legal and illegal), assault rifles, grenade launchers and explosives.  While a few of them are being appropriately handled by the FBI and ATF and no events like Waco or Ruby Ridge have occurred in a while, it will only be a matter of time before it does.

The corporate media’s silence on right-wing violence continues.  If this guy had been brown-skinned or named Muhammed, they couldn’t cover it enough.

Stay classy, patriot wanna-bes!
