WASHINGTON – Two white supremacists allegedly plotted to go on a national killing spree, shooting and decapitating black people and ultimately targeting Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, federal authorities said Monday.
In all, the two men whom officials described as neo-Nazi skinheads planned to kill 88 people — 14 by beheading, according to documents unsealed in U.S. District Court in Jackson, Tenn. The numbers 88 and 14 are symbolic in the white supremacist community.
The spree, which initially targeted an unidentified predominantly African-American school, was to end with the two men driving toward Obama, "shooting at him from the windows," the documents show.
"Both individuals stated they would dress in all-white tuxedos and wear top hats during the assassination attempt," the court complaint states. "Both individuals further stated they knew they would and were willing to die during this attempt.
"An Obama spokeswoman traveling with the senator in Pennsylvania had no immediate comment
I know that there are those in this country that are backward hillbillies that think that only white men should be entitled to everything, but this is ridiculous. First of all, these men were talking about killing children on the way to an attempt to Obama. If they don't want him to be elected, then cast your vote for McCain, don't plot to kill children or the man himself. This just makes me sick, but the way race realtions are and have been in this country, I'm not surprised, and I hate to say that.
Sad, sad, sad.
