Tea Party: The Smoking…Er, Bomb

I’m chagrinned to admit it to all you liberals, but the break you spent the last three years waiting for has finally arrived; a Tea Partier has been pled guilty to a significant act of domestic terrorism:

One of five men charged with plotting to bomb an Ohio highway bridge pleaded guilty Wednesday and agreed to testify against his co-defendants.

Anthony Hayne, 35, of Cleveland, who has a criminal record for theft and breaking and entering, pleaded to all three counts against him in U.S. District Court. His attorney, Michael O’Shea, said Hayne hopes to get leniency in return for his testimony.

Under the terms of the surprise plea deal, Hayne will have the chance to avoid a life prison term. With the plea and offer of testimony for the prosecution, he could face 15 years to nearly 20 years in prison.

“I don’t think any of these guys intended harm to human beings,” O’Shea said. “I think they just thought this was a way of making some sort of political statement. But I’m relatively confident none of these people had any desires to actually hurt anybody.”…The men also discussed other potential targets, including a law enforcement center, oil wells, a cargo ship or the opening of a new downtown casino, according to a prosecution affidavit.

Er, wait – did I say Tea Party?

I meant…:

The five had been associated with Occupy Cleveland, but organizers of the movement have tried to distance the group from the men. They say the five didn’t represent it or its nonviolent philosophy.

Out of the rat-infested rape camps, a wave of violence and conspiracy.

From the Tea Party?  Bupkes.  We’re all still waiting on any evidence of that “wave ot Tea Party Violence”.

And waiting.

And waiting.

  1. As if Seeuentee would drop a pile in this thread.

    //It is teh old white crabby flabby gun nuts like you, mberg, that are teh responsible for teh avalanche of teh tea baggin violence!!!//

  2. One difference between R & L political violence is that Left violence tends to be attached to organized movements, while the perpetrators of Right violence (McVeigh, for example) tend to be isolated individuals or very small, close-knit groups.
