“MAGA Bomber” Busted

Miami Herald:

The Miami Herald has learned that the suspect who has been arrested is a man in his 50s from Aventura. He is being questioned by FBI agents with the Joint Terrorism Task Force since his arrest this morning at about 10 a.m…

Live shots from a Local 10 news helicopter show federal agents examining a white van that appeared to be covered in pro-Donald Trump and right wing stickers. Investigators covered the vehicle with a blue tarp. Police have blocked off traffic at Peters Road heading north on State Road 7.

Federal investigators quickly centered the investigation on the dozen crudely fashioned “pipe bombs” sent to top Trump critics, including Hillary Clinton and Cory Booker, on a mail sorting facility in Opa-locka. The devices have been recovered in New York, Washington D.C., California and South Florida, all with the return address of Debbie Wassermann-Schultz’s office. Several words, including her name, were misspelled on the packages.

We’ll update as more is learned in this case, but hopefully this means the pipe bombs to prominent Democrats and critics of President Donald Trump will stop now. Lots of politics lurking in this story, and we advise everyone to make sure the time and manner of your response is something you’ll be proud of in hindsight.

With that said, yes–“MAGA Bomber” is looking like a pretty accurate moniker.

    Just admit that you believe he represents all Trump supporters.

    Say it so your HATE is obvious.

    I do not condone violence in any form.

    No one I know does. This person doesn't speak for me any more than Karl Marx speaks for Colorado Pols.

    We need to ratchet down the political rhetoric in this country and DEMOCRATS have their role to play in that.

    Don't kid yourself!! It's both sides!!

    • davebarnes says:

      "Both" sides?
      How you make my head explode.
      What prominent Dimocrat holds rallies where s/he and the crowd shout "lock her up"?
      What prominent Dimocrat has said that "Mexicans are rapists"?

    • Pseudonymous says:

      He represents all Trump supporters.  You just proved that with your self-serving lies.  And, of course you condone violence, you just hate when you get tagged for it.

      Having said all that, although you're evil, and your ideology is bankrupt, I don't want harm to come to you.

    • Voyageur says:

      Trump does condone violence.  He has urged supporters to beat up protesters.  He promised to pay any legal bills for supporte rs who beat up peaceful protesters.  He praised a Republican Congressional candidate who body slammed a reporter.

      trump is a goon who condones violence.

      moddy is an ass-kisser who has NEVER criticized Trump for condoning violence.

      As to Karl Marx, his theory of commodity fetishism is starting to look pretty good. How else can you explain Jeff Bezos?😈

    • unnamed says:

      Now it's both sides?  After you were trying to pin it on Dems yesterday?  Of course he represents Trumpers to a T.  Trump called for violence against protesters at his rallies. He even praised your Congressman from Montana for body-slamming a reporter.  Something you agreed with.  You have either said nothing, or defended it as most in your party have done.  Now, like a good little Quisling, you come here all butthurt and indignant about how we're trying to paint Trumper MAGAts with the broad brush based on this man's actions? 

      It's enough of you MAGAts that are advocating, condoning, or saying little to nothing to denounce violence.  You are all guilty.  You own this. 

        • Duke Cox says:

          Is that how you respond to a taste of your own medicine? You simply cannot deny the truth anymore. Your cover is blown…

          If you continue to support the overthrow of American democracy by an unprincipled thug, you are the problem. And now that the jig is up and the left is fighting back, you cry and whimper and try to pretend you are a victim.

          There is no honor in you…none.


        • RepealAndReplace says:

          The big difference, Negev, is that Bernie Sanders did not promise to pay the legal defense costs of Scalice’s assailant. And Hillary Clinton did not applaud as her kind of guy, a candidate who beat up a journalist.

          Your dear leader defecates in the swimming pool, then complains about the dirty water.

        • Conserv. Head Banger says:

          A few years ago, unknown parties; presumably "sagebrush rebels" like the ones who took over the Oregon wildlife refuge; left a pipe bomb at the front door of the US Forest Service office in Driggs, ID. Wonder if Negev would post an event like that?

          Also have observed that noted "sagebrush rebel" attorney; Karen Budd-Falen from Wyoming; has just been appointed to a high legal position in the BLM. Wonder if that is OK in the world of Negev?

    • Do you condemn Trump's hate-inciting rhetoric? His encouragement of violence against protestors? His description of the media as the enemy of the people? His chants of "lock him/her up!" targeted at many of the same people targeted by the bombs? His open mistreatment of women?

      Have you condemned your fellow Republicans for defending Trump and other hateful and abusive officials?

      Notsomuch… you're part of the problem, Moddy. Until the GOP is shown in no uncertain terms (aka being voted into irrelevance) that this is not acceptable American behavior, IMNSHO our country will continue its march toward a fascist kleptocracy.

    • spaceman65 says:

      No, Moddy, it's not both sides.  It's your side.  The nazi side.  The American fascists.  The bigots, the racists, the angry, pathetic losers who can't handle the great American melting pot anymore.  I'm going to continue being a patriot and fight you and your nazi ilk.  Because true American patriots fight nazis.

    • Mike W. says:

      I'm sure you, a 215-pound 57 year old Macedonian gentleman from the town of Shtip with a taste for terrible gubernatorial candidates, would say the exact same thing in any other situation where a President advocated for violence against his political opponents, the media, and other famous individuals, and then one of his dearest supporters attempted to blow all those individuals up. 

      Also, unless I'm mistaken: Karl Marx never tried to pipe bomb anybody. 

    • unnamed says:

      You as you write this post:

    • Genghis says:

      I do not condone violence in any form.

      You're a liar, cupcake.

    • RepealAndReplace says:

      He is typical of you and your kind, Nutlid. Unstable and violent.

    • CDW says:

      Seems to me he's acting for your president, or believes he is, at any rate. What might have given him that idea?

  2. Voyageur says:

    The MAGA bomber has been identified as Cesar Sayoc Jr., 56, of South Florida, an ardent Trump supporter.

  3. Pseudonymous says:

    Not mine, but "MAGA Mystery Machine" has made me laugh-cry more than once today.

    Also from some internet rando far more clever than I: “This van looks like what Steve Bannon would turn into if he were a Transformer.”

  4. Pseudonymous says:

    Republicans are doing so well in early voting, and at the polls, and now this “Bomb” stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows – news not talking politics. Very unfortunate, what is going on. Republicans, go out and vote!

    For Cornholio, wherever he is:

  6. JohnInDenver says:

    Well, here in Colorado, Republican ballots dropped off are slightly outpacing Democrats — about 5,100 votes.  I guess that counts as "so well in early voting" by some standards.

    Gender/Age ACN APV DEM      GRN  LBR    REP        UAF      UNI   Grand Total

    Grand Total  908   5    162,906 882  3,463  168,065 132,066 71   468,366

  7. Independent Voter says:

    It is just one side that promotes violence, hatred and bigotry and it's the supporters of the draft dodging traitor Trump. I'm an independent who has voted for both parties all the up to the office of President but until the republican party moves away from the alt right white and until any politician that has supported the traitor Trump is long gone I will not vote for a single republican.
