Thanks, interesting, I'll look for an actual news outlet running the story.
The group has been advocating for race war as well as training and planning for it apparently. They call their movement "white jihad". Suppose you have black South Africans in a similar group that want to eliminate whites and are training and planning for it, or a group of muslims that want to kill all the kaffir. Would you want to support their right to collect military style weapons?
First, the article says there were "five military-style rifles, three pistols and other gun parts". I know any number of private citizens with more guns than that.
Second, I have no idea what is meant by "military-syle rifle". If it's the same as the ones Dianne Feinstein writes pointless legislation trying to ban, a reasonable translation would be "scary-looking gun". This also fails to impress.
Third, there was no obvious crime or they most definitely would have charged him - the article says they did not. So the stories about there having been various crimes are apparently just that: Stories.
As I said in my previous post, maybe there was justification for this action. Maybe there wasn't. But there's nothing in the news reports I've seen
that says there was.
Anyway, to answer your question, given a group with a small number of legal weapons and no clear intention to cause harm, yes, I support them
retaining their rights under the constitution and law no matter who their imagined target is. And FWIW, I'm Jewish.
As for the stupid talentless Kathy Griffin and that stupid stunt she pulled: she got a visit from the secret service and she basically lost what little of a career she had. Got what she deserved. Meanwhile she didn't openly plan violence , train for it , or set up a nationwide org and recruit others to carry it out. Or for that matter none of her non existent organization actually carried out murder.
And here I thought that part of Griffin's supposed charm was her being a "D lister".
I hate to break it to you, but lots of people get visits from the Secret Service - sometimes repeated ones - for a lot less reason. (A friend of mine was on this detail for a while, and apparently it's awful.) It's called "potential threat assessment" and basically means diddley-squat.
As for her career, Wikipedia says some of her 2018 "comeback" tour dates sold out almost immediately. So I guess we're not rid of her after all. More's the pity.
