What Right Wing Extremist Violence?
In Oakland yesterday, Highway Patrol officers stopped a car being driven erratically by a 45-year old man — who promptly opened fire on them with several weapons, including a handgun, a rifle, and a shotgun. He was wounded by return fire from the officers, but survived because he was wearing body armor.
His reason for the rampage? He was mad at left-wing politics.
Williams’ mother, Janice Williams of Groveland, said her son had been living next door and taking care of her father’s house and land. She said he had been released from prison about 2 1/2 years ago after a felony conviction, which she declined to describe, and had almost completed his parole. …
She said her son, who had been a carpenter and a cabinetmaker before his imprisonment, was angry about his unemployment and about “what’s happening to our country.” …
She said she had planned to cook salsa with her son on Sunday and was making preparations when she got a call from a television reporter, looked out the window and saw that her pickup was gone. She said she then checked the locked safe where she kept her guns, all legally purchased and owned, and found that they were also missing.
Janice Williams said she kept the guns because “eventually, I think we’re going to be caught up in a revolution.” But she said she had told her son many times that “he didn’t have to be on the front lines.”
Williams watched the news on television and was upset by “the way Congress was railroading through all these left-wing agenda items,” his mother said.
And which cable news network is constantly pumping up the outrage and hatred against the Obama administration? Hint: it ain’t CNN.
