Today in Teabagger Terrorism

From Kansas:
Police have arrested a 51-year old Kansas man as a person of interest in connection with the murder of Wichita health provider Dr. George Tiller. Police are not releasing the name of the suspect, but numerous media sources are reporting that a man named Scott Roeder has been arrested in connection with the crime.

According to a Democratic Underground thread, a 1997 Militia Watchdog report put out by the Anti-Defamation League lists the following activity for July 7:
"July 7, Kansas: Scott Roeder is sentenced to sixteen months in state prison for parole violations following a 1996 conviction for having bomb components in his car trunk. Roeder, a sovereign citizen and tax protester, violated his parole by not filing tax returns or providing his social security number to his employer."
From "Freedom County," WA:
Currently free on bond, Andrew Steven Gray was arrested early last month after a lengthy investigation involving a Snohomish County militia shooting range, according to recently unsealed documents filed in U.S. District Court. Gray, a Snohomish man with a previous felony conviction on drug charges, is alleged to have amassed a 21-gun collection at a Monroe storage unit, as well as operated a 300- to 500-plant marijuana grow at his home.

Prosecutors also contend that Gray, 32, has long-standing ties to the sovereign citizen movement, in which adherents believe state and federal law do not apply to them. Through his attorney, Gray has denied membership in any such group; that claim, though, seems to be at odds with a letter sent to the court on Gray's behalf from a leader in a Snohomish County secessionist movement.

The bureau launched an investigation into Gray after a paid informant told authorities Gray had been shooting at a facility known as the Militia Training Center, according to statements from the lead investigator, a member of the bureau's Joint Terrorism Task Force. Due to his previous felony drug conviction, Gray is barred from handling firearms.

The informant obtained a recorded statement during which Gray was heard admitting to gun possession, according to the agent's statement. With that statement, federal agents obtained a search warrant and on May 4 raided a storage locker and home occupied by Gray.

At the locker, agents allegedly discovered a stash of weapons, armor and ammunition. The cache included four unregistered silencers, as well as a M-16-style machine gun capable of automatic fire. Among the weapons seized were two guns manufactured by a Snohomish gunsmith whose offerings include parts named "Christian warrior" and "NObama.


  1. Somewhere beyond Teh Wacky,™ Teh Crazy,™ and Teh Stupid™ lies a special zone spoken about only in whispers, and known as Teh Madness™. We have seen it manifested this day.

    Somewhat o/t, I have three questions:

    What "actionable intelligence" was Pontius Pilate looking for when he had Jesus whipped?

    What "ticking time-bomb scenario" did Jesus represent?

    And how did that whole martyrdom-thing work out for Christianity?

  2. The man who killed Tiller is the deed to the thought of O'Reilly, Hannity, Beck, Tony Perkins, Donald Wildmon, James Dobson and all their impotent little wannabes.

    This happened in Tiller's church - a Reformation Lutheran church, a "welcoming" church, code for accepting LGBT.

    This reminds me of the gunman who entered the Unitarian church last July killing two and wounding seven.

    There's no freedom of religion in the U.S., according to the Bible bangers. Either you believe like they do or you're fair game. That's not religion. That's a cult.

    I hope this drives each and every lemming last one of them over the cliff of relevance.

  3. Guns take some of the fun out of religious freedom.


  4. NYTimes this morning: Scott Roeder's family says he has history of mental illness but they never suspected he could take a human life. And yet above we find he was convicted for possession of bomb-making materials - surely *that* was a clue?

  5. We have as much to fear from our home grown Christian terrorists as we do from the foreign equally fanatic religious groups.

  6. When did Christ EVER condone, inspire violence even in the worst of circumstances.
    These are not religious people condoning violence, they are terrorists.
    It is either their way or nothing.
    There is no reason to differeniate them from the Taliban, both commit acts of violence in the name of religion.


We'll try dumping haloscan and see how it works.
