Neo-Nazi Assassination Plot Discovered


Thank goodness this plot was discovered before these neo-Nazi creeps had a chance to harm anyone: Assassination plot targeting Obama disrupted.

WASHINGTON — Federal agents have broken up a plot to assassinate Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and shoot or decapitate 102 black people in a Tennessee murder spree, the ATF said Monday.

In court records unsealed Monday, federal agents said they disrupted plans to rob a gun store and target a predominantly African-American high school by two neo-Nazi skinheads. Agents said the skinheads did not identify the school by name.

Jim Cavanaugh, special agent in charge of the Nashville field office for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said the two men planned to shoot 88 black people and decapitate another 14. The numbers 88 and 14 are symbolic in the white supremacist community.

The men also sought to go on a national killing spree, with Obama as its final target, Cavanaugh told The Associated Press.

Jake Ford on his race for the Ninth Congressional district:

Though Ford says comments he made earlier this year indicating the 9th District should be represented by a black candidate were misunderstood, he did say, “As far as I’m concerned, black people should vote together as a special interest group. If that makes me racist, then call me a racist all day.”

P.J. Tobia missed the 22nd Annual White Christian Heritage Festival in Pulaski, Tennessee and he’s wicked upset about it:

It is so important to remember white heritage. We just don’t get to do that enough in a country where the vast majority of people are white, most holidays were started by white Christians, almost everybody on TV or radio is white and our government is, for the most part, composed of white guys.

It’s great that these fine people are taking the time to pause and think of our glorious white past in this age where white people still run pretty much everything.

The City Paper: Editorial: Opposition to English Only needs to be heard

The City Paper: Editorial

Opposition to English Only needs to be heard

Metro Councilman Eric Crafton wants to debate Mayor Karl Dean on the merits of the English Only proposal Nashville voters will address in a special election with a half-million dollar price tag.

Certainly, this city needs to have some kind of public discourse on the subject of whether or not Nashville should become the largest municipality in the country to make its government business take place only in English.

Then there is the flip side of the English Only equation, the much-less-organized opposition. Despite such political heft as the majority of the Metro Council, the mayor, most every consequential immigrant leader in the city and the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce, the English Only opposition is not showing the same signs of life as the proponents.

That is disturbing. The city’s newspapers have reported on this brewing political battle ad nauseum — this one included. We have condemned English Only repeatedly on our editorial page, as have publications of every type citywide — print and digital.

Dork Nation: Don’t Look at Tennessee

Don’t Look at Tennessee

Many are trying to make predictions on how the Presidential elections will turn out by making comparisons to Harold Ford Jr’s unsuccessful bid to win a Senate seat in 2006. I think it’s a bad comparison. Schaffner at takes a look at some exit polling data on “late deciders” anyway and concludes there to have been no Bradley Effect in effect..

Of the things weighing down Jr’s campaign, race was probably less significant than having the last name Ford and being from Memphis. People knew “Ford,” but perhaps not as many knew Harold Ford Jr. I think folks were still trying to see whether or not there would be some kind of fallout from his family members legal troubles. There’s also the fact that late in the campaign, many progressives and Kurita fans were still pondering whether to pinch the snout and pull the lever for Ford or waste one on Lugo. Or abstain.

Racial Politics

More eloquently than I can, Charles Krauthammer has described theshameful racial politics played by Barack Obama against  John McCain and Sarah Palin, as well as against Bill Clinton. 

It’s clear that the allegedly post-racial Obama is not above being a race huckster whenever he needs to scare up a vote.

Rep. Zach Wamp: The radical elements in Islam already are using Sharia-compliant tactics for global financial arrangements

What single issue apart from the economy is most in need of attention in the final days of the campaign.


Zach Wamp, Rep. (R-Tenn.):

Without question the single greatest difference between these two candidates is the sacrifice and service of Senator McCain over the novice and sometimes arrogant actions of Senator Obama. From Pakistan to 
North Korea, and from Iran to Russia, we face the most extraordinary security challenges of our lifetime.

The radical elements in Islam already are using Sharia-compliant tactics for global financial arrangements and Islamic law to challenge the laws of nations in Europe, and will soon be challenging U.S. law. These realities must be a part of the final decision of the American people or we will live to regret the outcome of this landmark election.
