    HEADLINE: Hatewatch Exclusive: Alleged LAX Shooter Referenced ‘Patriot’ Conspiracy Theories

    // 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.

    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….

    ….Yesterday, several news organizations reported that Ciancia was carrying a hand-written document referring to his desire to kill “TSA and pigs.” Pete Williams and Andrew Blankstein of NBC News, who first reported that Ciancia had referred to the New World Order, also wrote that a source said his manifesto “expressed animus toward racial minorities.” Hatewatch was not able to confirm that allegation. Hatewatch has no records of Ciancia and he is not known to have joined or participated in the activities of any radical groups. Reporters talking to his neighbors have not yet found any evidence of such participation or radical statements.

    The attack, which Ciancia allegedly carried out using a semi-automatic 223-caliber AR-15, comes at a time when the Patriot movement has been growing by leaps and bounds, from some 149 groups in 2008 to 1,360 last year, according to counts by the Southern Poverty Law Center. That explosive growth seems to have been driven by the election of our first black president and the approaching loss of a white majority in the U.S. that he represents. Another driver is the crash of the economy, which coincided neatly with the rise to national power of President Obama. //

      Since this PAC the LAX Terror shooter is looking more like a Paulinist, the TBGOPers would dump him as a loon, they would make him more like an Anarchist…..pushing his ideology as a Loony leftie.

      Shifting blame is what they do best.

    This will sound cold and that is not me intention, but what’s with these “a drone killed my mother and grandmother stories”?

      I am with you on this. Family members of our troops and non-troops killed by the terrorists in Pakistan are the Pakistani government welcoming them to come before their parliament and air their grievances?

      I am not saying this in anger….or cruelty, just that During GW Bush, the media would not have been doing this. Congress was not allowing Iraqis who lost family members before some committee.

      • November 2, 2013 at 4:05 pm

        What will these people in Congress do in 2017, when they’ve destroyed a lot of the country’s credibility in their war against President Obama, and they find the world won’t give the country the time of day? Their actions are so short-sighted.

    I noticed some over here didn’t recognize the significance of “Red Hat” coming to the rescue of the health.gov web site.

    Watch this: http://www.redhat.com/

    Red Hat bought Cygnus (Cygnus is your GNU support) company back in ’99 … it has been one of the foremost free software companies since then.

    [ OK, that’s as much advertisement I will do on their behalf ]

    During a Friday Obamacare education and outreach session in Tennessee, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius faced an unexpected encounter.

    The Memphis Daily News captured a photo of Sebelius holding a copy of “Web Sites for Dummies” at a local library. The individual behind the exchange was state Sen. Brian Kelsey (R), who claimed on Twitter that the “book is simply a reminder” that “Tennessee does NOT want Medicaid expansion.”

    • November 2, 2013 at 3:30 pm

      Couple days ago in our paper, there was a write-up of an interview that had been done with Gov Haslam. One of the quotes: he is now second-guessing his decision to not take the Medicaid expansion. Well duh? Idiot!

      Lindsay Graham is a quivering mass of jello. He’ll go anywhere, do anything, take up any position in the world as long as he doesn’t get primaried. Please let a strong Democrat run against his wimp. He has to go.

      • November 2, 2013 at 5:12 pm

        He definitely has a challenger – Jay Stamper.

        And, check this latest post on Jay’s page:

        As many of you know, I recently came out in favor of marriage equality. I knew it was politically risky in a state like South Carolina, but I also knew it was the right thing to do.

        Several days after my announcement, a state party official summoned me to his office. To my disbelief he tried to persuade me to drop out of the race. I said no thanks.

        Apparently, certain well-connected “party elders” believe that my candidacy is a distraction that will only hurt Democratic gubernatorial candidate Vincent Sheheen by highlighting his opposition to marriage equality and women’s reproductive rights.

        Now, my campaign is meeting resistance from the last place I expected: from within the state party establishment.
        I’m proud to be a Democrat. But the party is more than just a handful of well-connected insiders sitting in an office building. It’s you, it’s me, it’s millions of “ordinary” people across the country who believe in equal rights and equal opportunity for all. I’m not going to drop out. I’m not going to back down. And I need your support.”

    Spent time going door to door today, stumping for our local candidates. It’s amazing to me how some people don’t see the connection between their voting and getting the things they want from their local government. Talked to one young man who had no intention of voting this year until I asked him whether he was completely satisfied with the way his city was run. When he said no, I had to convince him that the only way to change what he didn’t like was to vote. The good news is that our side was on the streets and making phone calls and the Republicans weren’t. We’ve knocked on more doors and made more calls and we even have a nice complement of bilingual phone bankers. Will go on the doors again tomorrow and then hit the phones. Every election counts. Even the tiniest success on Tuesday will energize voters for 2014.

    Richmond, Virginia. The racism in this country sometimes takes my breath away. Thank goodness Terry McAuliffe is projected to win. Hope it burns these douchebags to their very bones.

      It is revolting but it isn’t something that “just happened.” There’s a small but persistent group that stand in front of the VMFA (Virginia Museum of Fine Arts) practically every weekend. It’s on a pretty busy street in one of the lovelier sections of town. Rain or shine, cold or hot, they’re usually out there, mostly ignored but out there nonetheless.

      I’m so looking forward to PBO’s visit tomorrow and casting my ballot for McCauliffe on down on Tuesday!

      I want to hear the media talk about stories like this one by Nicholas Kristof. This is what Obamacare is all about. I will be emailing CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC and asking them about people like this truck driver. Where is the concern for the uninsured? how many more people like this driver could be out there because Republican Governors are refusing the Medicaid expansion?

    The beauty of the Gandhi quote in the tweet at the top of the post is that President Obama was winning when they ignored him and when they laughed at him and when they fought him. He’s been a winner his whole life. I’m standing with President Obama and Ridin’ with Biden! Isn’t everyone?

    Good afternoon/evening, TOD.

    I just went to see 12 Years a Slave and OMG, what a tremendously powerful film. Astonishing acting – Chiwetel Ejiofor is just breathtaking and Lupita Nyong’o has one of the most demanding roles you’ll ever see on the big screen (she has an interesting background: born in Mexico, raised in Kenya and educated in the U.S. I think this is her debut film playing a major role). It’s brutal in many parts – you will feel a sense of despair but it is so strong in its raw power to take you there and give you a slight sense of the horrors of slavery. There are also many moments of stillness that are stunning. The last 5 minutes will just level you. I say, BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO.

    SEE 12 Years a Slave.

      Thanks for the report, meta. Chiwetel is one of my very favorite actors. I love looking at him. :mrgreen: I’ve been wanting to see this movie — and I will. I just need to be ready for the intensity. Not quite sure I’m there yet.

      That is a compelling tribute to the film, meta. Just not sure I can see it. So glad you wrote “and give you a slight sense of the horrors of slavery.” Says it all.
