  1. “…investigators were still looking into whether the fires were ‘bias motivated.'” WTF? No, they were “hate motivated,”
    hatred of God, Church, and Country. He is not alone in this world. Lots of crazies out there. I’ll bet there were many hints over the years that this guy was not playing with a full deck. Just my opinion.

    Ann Coulter has mentioned this double standard many times. The federal government won’t even provide statistics on how many prisoners in federal prisons are Hispanics.
