A Washington state lawmaker is under FBI scrutiny for writing a how-to guide on killing non-believers in a 'holy war' and establishing a theocracy
Quote:
A Washington state lawmaker who moonlights as a wannabe theocrat has stumbled into FBI scrutiny over a how-to guide he wrote on killing non-believers and establishing a Christian theocracy.

Five-term Washington state Rep. Matt Shea has been circulating a manual for holy war in the United States, the Seattle Times reported.

The four-page document, titled "Biblical Basis for War," goes point-by-point over how a Christian theocratic movement could — and should — exterminate its opposition in a battle to win a hypothetical holy war.

At the outset, Shea's holy army would issue terms of surrender to its enemies. The demands include "stop all abortions," "no same-sex marriage," "no idolatry or occultism," "no communism," and "must obey Biblical law."

If the rest of the country refuses to "yield" to these terms, the document advocates a final solution: "kill all males."

Yup - he's the point of the "Harboring Terrorists?" thread.

At least in this case, for the last 10 years, yes, the GOP has been harboring a terrorist.

Gotta say, “Kill all males” is not where I expected that to go.

There is no equivalent to this on the left

U.S. militia groups head to border, stirred by Trump’s call to arms
Quote:
FALFURRIAS, Tex. —Gun-carrying civilian groups and border vigilantes have heard a call to arms in President Trump’s warnings about threats to American security posed by caravans of Central American migrants moving through Mexico. They’re packing coolers and tents, oiling rifles and tuning up aerial drones, with plans to form caravans of their own and trail American troops to the border.

“We’ll observe and report, and offer aid in any way we can,” said Shannon McGauley, a bail bondsman in the Dallas suburbs who is president of the Texas Minutemen. McGauley said he was preparing to head for the Rio Grande in coming days.

“We’ve proved ourselves before, and we’ll prove ourselves again,” he said.

McGauley and others have been roused by the president’s call to restore order and defend the country against what Trump has called “an invasion,” as thousands of Central American migrants advance slowly through southern Mexico toward the U.S. border. Trump has insisted that “unknown Middle Easterners,” “very tough fighters,” and large numbers of violent criminals are traveling among the women, children and families heading north on foot.

The Texas Minutemen, according to McGauley, have 100 volunteers en route to the Rio Grande who want to help stop the migrants, with more likely on the way.

“I can’t put a number on it,” McGauley said. “My phone’s been ringing nonstop for the last seven days. You got other militias, and husbands and wives, people coming from Oregon, Indiana. We’ve even got two from Canada.”

Yeah, not since the 1980s. The days of the SLA and the May 19 group are 30 or more years behind us. There is no left-wing violence in the US. There is no left-wing-led armed standoff at an Oregon wildlife preserve. There is no left-wing massacre at a place of worship in Pittsburgh. There is no left-wing march on Virginia promoting hate in which a right-wing person is killed in a wanton act of vehicular homicide. There is no left-wing politician saying that a slaughter in that Pittsburgh synagogue was bad for him politically. There's no equivalent to any of this foolishness on the left, terrorist in nature and violent or not. But if one listens to FOX News and Trump and their twisted patently false views on the world long enough, one might be persuaded that it's the left that behaves this way.

To recap, just in the last week:

1) A racist white guy in Kentucky kills two random black people, ages 67 & 69, at a Kroger, just because they are black, having minutes before been unsuccessful trying to enter a black church and presumably shoot the congregation.

2) A looney tunes MAGA fanboy tries to assassinate a dozen Democratic and media figures, including the former President, Vice-President, Secretary of State, Attorney General, and CIA Director.

3) An anti-semitic white guy in PA murders 11 worshippers and wounds many others, including four cops, at a Pittsburgh synagogue. Social media posts cite Trump's claim that the Caravan is full of middle eastern terrorists and being funded by Jews.

4) Mitch McConnell was heckled at a Cuban restaurant.

Which of these things is not like the others?

Don't forget when Pence got called out at Hamilton.

Geez, republicans are snowflakes.

Conservatives are irate the Parkland shooter registered to vote from jail — as a Republican
Quote:
A father of a Parkland school shooting victim appeared on “Fox & Friends” over the weekend and suggested, without evidence, that Democrats registered the accused shooter to vote from jail as part of an effort to steal Florida’s election.

“It just shows you how despicable these Democrats are that they’ll stoop that low to go into the prison, the jail, and register these criminals,” said Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was one of 17 people Nikolas Cruz allegedly shot and killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February. “It’s never been done in 20 years.”

Citing a “tip from deputies at the jail,” Pollack said the plan failed because Broward County — which is now involved in a recount battle that could swing Florida’s Senate and gubernatorial elections — failed to send the inmates their ballots in time to vote.

“They probably shouldn’t be voting anyway,” Fox’s Katie Pavlich remarked after listening to Pollack’s accusations, which neither she nor her two co-hosts challenged at any point, although they contradicted all public evidence.

There was a kernel of truth at the heart of the segment and the spiraling social media outrage that accompanied it: Nikolas Jacob Cruz really did register to vote in July, listing his home address as the county jail where he awaits trial after police say he confessed to the mass shooting.

He registered as a Republican, which “Fox & Friends” didn’t mention.

There is nothing suspicious or mysterious about what Cruz did from his cell. In general, jail inmates are constitutionally entitled to register and vote before their trials, assuming no prior convictions or legal disqualifications. Broward County records show that in 2016 and previous elections, several inmates did exactly that from the same jail where Cruz now sits.

I'm sure Fox and Friends also didn't even bat an eye at the part where he says that it didn't matter because the officials at the jail didn't even send the ballots to the inmates in time for them to vote. That has to be an absolute Constitutional violation right there, denying them their right to vote if they are legally entitled to. I thought the Republicans loved the Constitution above all else?

You're forgetting... they only like certain parts. You know, the 2nd Amendment... everything else is just fluff. Kind of like their favorite quotes in the bible. Everything else can just be ignored.

Authorities find a rocket launcher and pipe bombs during massive Florida white supremacist sting
Quote:
Thirty-nine members of the United Aryan Brotherhood and Unforgiven neo-Nazi groups were arrested in a Florida drug trafficking sting — and one had functional pipe bombs in his home.

Tampa’s WFTS-TV reported that the multi-agency sting codenamed “Operation Blackjack,” a three-year-long investigation, led to the seizure of more than 110 illegal firearms, a rocket launcher and two pipe bombs from the individuals mostly based in Pasco County, Florida.

Authorities also seized “several pounds” of meth and fentanyl.
