‘Look over there, it’s my other hand!’, says every right winger in the face of another domestic terrorism report. Case in point: Mayor de Blasio mentioned his son’s race and the dangers of Walking While Black, therefore, according to the right wing, he instigated violence by having the audacity to speak of his son who is half-black.
Three Georgia men accused of conspiring to obtain explosives now face a much more serious domestic terrorism charge — conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction, Northwest Georgia News reports, and it barely gets a mention by the media.
Terry Eugene Peace, Brian Edward Cannon and Cory Robert Williamson on Monday waived arraignment and pleaded not guilty to the domestic terrorism charge as well as charges of conspiring to defraud the government.
A charming bunch of guys. The middle one looks like a member of ISIS.
All three have pleaded not guilty, but there’s this:
Peace, Cannon and Williamson — all members of a militia in Georgia — participated in online chat discussions between Jan. 23 and Feb. 15, 2014, that were monitored by the FBI.
During the conversations online, they discussed using guerilla war tactics and planned to launch attacks against a metro Atlanta police station and several government agencies in February 2014.
The three men attempted to “recruit other individuals to join them and to carry out similar operations in those individuals’ home states.”
Peace allegedly told other militia members to choose targets including “road blocks, TSA checkpoints, sheriffs/police conducting operations outside the Constitution” as well as to participate in the “removal of government people who support extra-Constitutional activities.”
An undercover FBI source met with the men in 2014 after the three ‘patriots’ sought to obtain several explosive devices, including a thermite-mix charge and a dozen pipe bombs constructed for “maximum fragmentation.”
Phone conversations were recorded between one of the men and an informant. Peace requested the explosives and told the informant the devices were a “key element” to their plan.
The men were arrested in Cartersville on Feb. 15, 2014, when they took possession of inert explosives and other material given to the source by the FBI.
The three were originally arraigned in March 2014 on a charge of conspiracy to receive and possess a destructive device. The new indictment and charge supersedes the previous indictment.
Raw Story reports, “In other words, the men plotted to launch large-scale explosive attacks against local government and police that, if successfully carried out, would have been the largest terror attacks on U.S. soil since 9/11.”
But, de Blasio and white people problems. And Eric Garner was a ‘thug’ because cigarettes.
Meanwhile, Linsey Graham says Obama’s policies are ‘Getting a lot of people killed’.
There’s that other hand.
