Two sheriffs deputies, Brandon Nielsen and Jeremy Triche,were ambushed and gunned down in Louisiana by two members of a far-right domestic terrorist group known as the sovereign citizens movement. The conspiracy theories those nut-job cuntmonkeys believe make the fictional books in the Illuminatus Trilogy seem realistic and plausible.
The murder of the sheriffs deputies adds to the total of more than 50 attacks by far-right domestic terrorist groups in the last few years, versus one attack by a left-wing supporter (which had no fatalities). This does not make the news. No one mentions a pattern. Every one of these attacks was by a “lone-gunman” or a “few disturbed individuals”. And now they are even ignoring domestic terrorism even when it murders officers of the law … the people sworn to protect and to serve the citizens of the United States. Yes, some officers are bad and racist and asshats, but most of them are just trying to keep the peace and do their jobs. In return for their service they are getting gunned down … by extremists from the right wing, not the lefties who participate in protest marches about stop and frisk laws or Occupy Wall Street, mind you.
Well, I remember Brandon Nielsen and Jeremy Triche, dammit. I noticed their senseless murders, and mourn for them and their families.
I also remember that Daryl Johnson “spent 15 years studying domestic terrorist groups — particularly white supremacists and neo-Nazis — as a government counterterrorism analyst, the last six of them at the Department of Homeland Security. There, he even homebrewed his own database on far-right extremist groups on an Oracle platform, allowing his analysts to compile and sift reporting in the media and other law-enforcement agencies on radical and potentially violent groups. But Johnson’s career took an unexpected turn in 2009, when an analysis he wrote on the rise of “Right-Wing Extremism” (.pdf) sparked a political controversy. Under pressure from conservatives, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) repudiated Johnson’s paper”.
Furthermore, right wing domestic terrorists in a Georgia militia just got a slap on the wrist for plotting to kill both civilians and government officials. One of them “claimed to be in communication with a “loose cannon” Army soldier who could provide him with ricin and said he “could shoot ATF and IRS all day long.” Wanna bet they would have gotten a stiffer sentence if the vile dipshits were Muslim instead of church goers?
Meanwhile a Texas judge named Tom Head said that “he feared Obama would hand over sovereignty of the United States to the United Nations and the unrest would naturally follow”, which he described as “Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war, maybe. And we’re not talking just a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy.”
Yeah, “the guy”. Does it physically hurt Judge Head to call a black man Mr. President, perhaps?
I will remember all these things when some right wing pundit and spin doctor calls liberals “fascists”. I will also remember who is really willing to use deadly force to force others to bow to their political views.
Someone should remember.
