Domestic Terrorist Bombs A Wal-Mart To Protest End Of Confederate Flag Sales

A domestic right-wing terrorist bombed a Mississippi Wal-Mart on Sunday, November 1st, in protest over the retail giant’s decision to no longer sell Confederate flags and other associated paraphernalia. There were no casualties.

Marshall W. Leonard, 61, is facing a life sentence for throwing an explosive device into a Wal-Mart at 1:30 AM. He allegedly warned an employee on break, and told him to run, as reports the Tupelo Daily Journal. “The employee did run and was away from harm when the package went off. It wasn’t a large explosion. It didn’t cause a lot of damage to the store” said Tupelo Police Chief Bart Aguirre.

Leonard had posted threats on a Facebook page a few days before. “Journal corporate, you are on final warning,” he wrote on Oct. 28. “You are part of the problem. As a result of this, y’all are going down, along with Walmart, WTVA, Reeds department store, and all the rest of the anti-American crooks. I’m not kidding. No messing around anymore!” Local television reports that this man was so obsessed that he was “kicked out of the Confederate flag advocacy group Mississippi On Guard in August after protesting at a Tupelo City Council meeting while being draped in the flag” – because his wearing of the flag was “a desecration” of the sacred symbol of American white supremacy.

4. This happened 2 days ago

And we're just hearing about it. Can you imagine if a Muslim had thrown a bomb into a WalMart?

6. Can you imagine if this was a muslim who

"built" a "clock?"

He might end up in the middle east because his parents thought they could get away with something here, like getting invited to the white house, or winning a few scholarships due to his incredible ability to take apart a thirty year old Radio Shack clock and stuff the innards into a briefcase.

Pure genius I tell ya.

13. The national media seems to be mostly ignoring this story

But I found this in today's NE Mississippi newspaper, the Daily Journal:
TUPELO – During his initial court appearance Tuesday, Marshall Leonard said he will plead guilty to placing a homemade bomb at a Tupelo Walmart.

Leonard, 61, of 2392 Barnes Crossing Road, was arrested early Sunday morning, just moments after he allegedly ignited and threw the explosives into the vestibule of the North Gloster Walmart. He was formally charged with planting an explosive (Mississippi Code 97-37-25) Tuesday afternoon. The charge carries up to a life sentence.

Leonard, who is unemployed and calls himself a professional activist, is a staunch supporter of the Mississippi state flag, which has come under fire in recent months because it contains the Confederate battle flag. He has railed against Walmart on social media for the retail giant’s decision to stop selling items that contain the Confederate battle flag.

When asked by the media on the way into the court why he bombed Walmart, he said, “They are a bunch of PC —hole. They are the enemies.”http://djournal.com/news/bond-set-for-walmart-bombing-suspect/
I wonder what his DI user name is?

12. Hopefully he recieves the maximum sentence allowable

Too bad someone didnt save the state money by shooting him in the act of his attempted murder

15. So in this case it was a right wing domestic terrorist. But if he had been a Muslim

liberals would be calling him a mentally ill criminal. Got it.
