On Monday, the U.S. Capitol Police   announced   the arrest of a California man carrying a bayonet and machete inside a truck adorned with white supremacist and Nazi symbols, near the Democratic National Committee Headquarters.

"Around midnight, a Special Operation Division Officer was on patrol when he noticed a Dodge Dakota pickup truck, with a swastika and other white supremacist symbols painted on it, outside of the DNC headquarters," said the USCP in a statement. "The truck did not have a license plate. Instead, a picture of an American flag was placed where the license plate should have been. The Capitol Police officer pulled over the truck along the 500 block of South Capitol Street, SW. The officers noticed a bayonet and machete, which are illegal in Washington, D.C., inside the truck."

The driver, Donald Craighead from Oceanside, California, claimed he was "on patrol" and espoused white supremacist ideology before being arrested on weapons charges.

The arrest comes as law enforcement in the D.C. area are   on high alert   ahead of a planned right-wing rally to support the January 6 Capitol rioters, although according to USCP, "it is not clear if [Craighead] was planning to attend any upcoming demonstrations or if he has ties to any previous cases in the area."

Oceanside, California?  That's Camp Pendleton.  Is Craighead a USMC vet?

Seems he was in the right location

Lets see...

Both parties seem to be seen as leftist. 

Both parties seem to support oppression.  Nazi's oppressed anybody who spoke out against them.  Kind of like the Democrats do now.

So yea, seems this guy was in the right location to support his beliefs.

No, I haven't heard any Republicans trying to bamboozle idiots by saying they are fascists.

THAT'S the crap I was specifically referring to.

As you well knew, or damn sure should have.

You lose any and ALL credibility with that kind of insane nonsense.

At least with me. I am sure many progressive liberals will agree with you, of course, but I can't respect them.

Me stating facts seems to be a problem for you.

Tough.

Your opinion of my credibilty is meaningless.

As are your ridiculous claims about fascism.

Now, move along.

Whenever I am good and ready.

Oh, one more thing.  We don't see you denouncing or questioning the IDIOTIC comments about Nazis being seen as "leftist", or equating Democrats with Nazis.   So, we know where you're at.

Now you're dismissed.  Have a really wonderful day.

You have NEVER seen anything I have EVER posted about calling Democrats Nazis. I don't DO that kind of stupid shit.

See, I know enough not to make asinine comparisons between American politicians and Nazis. I am just waiting for the day when idiots stop doing so.

Now you're dismissed. 

Climb down from your ivory tower and stop believing you have any ability at all to dismiss me from anything.

Have a really wonderful day.

Always is when I get a chance to set a progressive liberal straight--or at least introduce them to facts.

What orifice did you pull that load of shit from?

that as a Trumpist-Fascist he should murder innocent Americans.

It wasn't Trump or any Republicans that abandoned American's in a hostile area.

Your double standard is open and obvious.

Sadly for you, it sounds like you're going to have a miserable day.

You remain dismissed.

Just more projection on YOUR part. I don't do stupid-ass comparisons between Nazis and Americans--not even progressive liberals, and defy you to post a single time I have done so.

When you can't, will you stop bleating this nonsense?

Sadly for you, it sounds like you're going to have a miserable day.

Sadly, I can't understand what I wrote FOR you.

You remain dismissed.
