What Fresh Hell Is This?

Who Says No Domestic Terrorism?

From the AP:
An out-of-work truck driver accused of opening fire at a Unitarian church, killing two people, left behind a note suggesting that he targeted the congregation out of hatred for its liberal policies, including its acceptance of gays, authorities said Monday.
How different is this from this?
Suicide bombers struck Shia pilgrims in Baghdad and a Kurdish rally in northern Iraq yesterday, killing at least 57 people and wounding nearly 300, police said.
The only difference is that the bombers used different weapons and killed more people.

Another AP story, this time via MSNBC:

Knoxville Police Chief Sterling Owen IV said a letter had been been recovered from the SUV of Jim D. Adkisson, 58, by investigators seeking clues about the motive behind the attack. Authorities said he was an apparent stranger to the Tennessee church where gunfire punctuated a children's performance based on the musical "Annie." Two people were killed and seven wounded Sunday.

"It appears that what brought him to this horrible event was his lack of being able to obtain a job, his frustration over that and his stated hatred of the liberal movement," Owen said at a news conference.

Who said we ain't got no domestic evil-doers?

John K: Oh Sherry bought into the LA Times piece. LMAO Now Limbaugh is responsible for all those dead people? Forget that The Wash Post and NY Times published false articles about US troops flushing a Koran down a toilet, etc. And that this false story caused actual deaths to occur. We'll just forget that. How conveeeenient. LMAO

the shooter is a self described devotee of savage, limbaugh and o'reilly who hated liberals and the liberal movement. but ironically enough, his notification that his FOOD STAMPS were being cancelled may well have been what prompted him to commit this atrocious attack. he was hoping to die.

where's the outrage over this act of domestic terrorism? or doesn't it matter since the UU church welcomes all members? they "humanize gays".... oh, the horror!
