Yesterday, a bomb was discovered along the Martin Luther King parade route in Spokane, Washington:
A bomb left along the route of a Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade was sophisticated, with a remote detonator and the ability to cause many casualties, an official familiar with the case said Wednesday.
“They haven’t seen anything like this in this country,” the official said. “This was the worst device, and most intentional device, I’ve ever seen.”
No one was hurt (the bomb didn’t go off, thankfully).
It’s rather suspicious however:
Three parade workers spotted a backpack with visible wires on a bench at North Washington Street and West Main Avenue in downtown Spokane about 30 minutes before the parade was scheduled to begin Monday.
Is this the work of a false flag (Democratic pollster: Obama needs an Oklahoma City bombing moment to reconnect with the American people)? Hopefully there’s no link to anyone on the right or faux-right, though the mass media is working diligently to make such a connection.
The mystery of the Spokane bomb:
More recently, across the Idaho line in Coeur D’Alene, white supremacists been picketing Mexican food carts and generally making a ruckus. That doesn’t mean they had anything to do with the MLK bomb, by any measure. But the white supremacists are certainly watching, and they know they’re being watched. Rachel Maddow tweeted this posting about it from the white supremacists of the Northwest Front, on their Homeland Blog. As she pointed out, they provided a link to our story with no other comment. Their post is filed under “activism,” whatever that indicates.
