WHITE SUPREMACY UPDATE: Self-described White Nationalist wanted to kill Democrats, TV hosts

quote [ U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant Christopher Paul Hasson was arrested Feb. 15 on drug and gun charges, but prosecutors said in a detention memo this week that he intended "to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country." The Coast Guard flagged him because of internet searches of extremist web sites at work. A search of his Silver Spring, Maryland, residence yielded 15 firearms and 1,000 rounds of ammunition, the court documents say. He "compiled a list of prominent Democratic Congressional leaders, activists, political organizations, and MSNBC and CNN media personalities." ]

It's almost as if having a President who equivocates between Nazis and anti-Nazi protestors and who calls the media the enemy of the people might actually cause problems.
