Oh I fully expect an Orwellian 1984 world where people are thrown into the gulags for "wrong-think" is on it's way. He was off by about 40 or 50 years is all.

I expects so too maybe sooner than we think. It's almost sort of here already.

It really is breathtaking just how much our free-speech rights are being whittled away, all in the name of battling "terrorism", "white nationalism" or some other bogeyman these "elites" love cooking up.

rudolfo Montoya was arrested this week. He had plans to kill many people at a Marriott in California.

I'm thankful to the FBI and grateful for the "see something say something" americans who report these wanna-be killers before they can harm innocents.

That article COULD have been titled correctly as "Man Arrested on Weapons Charges." Or, it could have been appropriately titled, "Drugs and Weapons Found, Man Arrested." Or, "Grenade Launcher Found in Man's Home."

But NO, it had to be sensationalized to further the latest flavor-of-the-month crusade, didn't it? It had to get that "white supremacist" thing in there, didn't it? The tired and tattered race card had to be slammed down in the table, didn't it? The article had to include irrelevant information, didn't it? Having "white supremacist and racist materials" (as in books, articles, etc) in your home is not illegal. Why is it even mentioned here? If he had Penthouse magazines in his house, would that also have been thrown in there? What if he had a teddy bear on his bed? Would that irrelevant fact have been offered up as well?

God, the media is disgusting these days. Is there anyplace to go and get unbiased reporting and RELEVANT information in a story without some kind of spin? News has turned into didactic literature and op-eds. It's like the Spanish Inquisition of several hundred years ago--same fanaticism, different God.
Sadly, your defense of the white supremacists comes up short. Every day another one is discovered and arrested before they can do serious harm. Unlike Trump loyalists, I’m grateful for the FBI and applaud their efforts.

His lawyer says he will get off on search issues. These right wing nuts are going to cost us all our constitutional rights before its over. They abuse/misuse the 1st, 2nd and, in this case, 4th to promote their racist goals.

I donít think he was arrested for being a racist.

Where do you get the grenades? You can buy a tank, but the ammo is a little harder to get. Either will make a very good doorstop.
