Most have heard about the Tucson shooting by a mentally ill neo-nazi / skinhead. Most have not heard about the terrorist plot in Spokane Washington on the Martin Luther King Holiday this past monday.
There was a backpack with explosives / shrapnel left along the MLK parade route in Spokane. It was to be detonated by a terrorist watching it from afar. The FBI has stated it was a sophisticated bomb plot by someone that knew what they were doing. Yesterday it was reported there were ties between that backpack bomb and a group of neo nazis in northern Idaho (~20 miles from Spokane, WA)
This hate group has threatened president Obama and is now carrying out their threats of killing Jewish leaders (congresswoman Giffords is Jewish) as well as those who were marching in support of MLK and his views on equal rights for all races of people.
One has to wonder why the media has not connected the two events when both events were carried out by people with the same racist world view. If this group is escalating, then there may be another event they attempt to carry out soon.
PS: Does anyone know why I'm getting so many page view on this blog from the governments of North Korea and Iran? Neither of them read my blog on nuclear physics.
