“The 23-year-old man who allegedly killed a TSA official at Los Angeles International Airport yesterday was carrying a one-page ‘manifesto’ that included references to the ‘New World Order,’ the Federal Reserve and ‘fiat currency,’ according to a knowledgeable source with ranking law enforcement contacts.” That’s the 411 from the “Hatewatch Exclusive” from the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization that has a particular fondness for focusing on far-right causes, and never misses an opportunity to bash gun clingers . . .
“Paul Anthony Ciancia, who allegedly wounded three other TSA workers before being shot and critically wounded himself, also expressed antagonism toward the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its chief until she resigned in August, Janet Napolitano, the source said. Ciancia’s note called former Secretary Napolitano a ‘bull dyke’ and contained the phrase ‘FU Janet Napolitano,’ the source said.”
Right so the gun thing . . .
Ciancia’s language and references seemed to put him squarely in the conspiracy-minded world of the antigovernment “Patriot” movement . . .
So-called Patriots . . . see the DHS, which produces intelligence assessments of extremists that are distributed to other law enforcement agencies, as an enemy and even a collaborator in the New World Order conspiracy. Many believe DHS has targeted their movement and is somehow connected to the alleged construction of concentration camps by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The purported camps are thought to be meant for those Americans who resist a coming national seizure of all weapons from U.S. citizens.
Sure, Ciancia believed all that because . . .. he believed some of it. Maybe. Still, brace yourself boys. The American gun owner as proto-domestic terrorist meme is coming to an MSNBC near you soon. If it’s not already there.
