My thoughts on the "White Supremacists" who wanted to kill 88 black people, decapitate 14 more, and then try to kill Obama?
I guess they never saw this on YouTube (video starts on page load, somewhat loud music). It's very Hollywood, which makes me roll my eyes, but you get the point. Yeah, approach the candidate in a speeding car? You ain't gonna get close.
Just as a point here, I strongly disagree with giving the Secret Service this kind of firepower to use domestically. Why? Because in stopping that speeding car with this, a lot of collateral damage is going to happen. As I remember, a minigun is not a very precise weapon, it's just meant to spew a curtain of lead in the general direction you point the gun. The Service tends to operate in close environments, especially domestically.
Also, considering the various rhetorical flourishes by the right which condemn many things as "domestic terrorism" I'm not hearing that being thrown about it this case. Why? No, really, I want to know. Instead we get this.
And because I'm in a dark mood, I present this joke. "The one good thing about skinheads? They show up really well in infrared scopes."
