Notice how he is not referred to as a terrorist in the article below.

Where are these people’s priorities? Walmart treats its employees horrifically, wouldn’t that be a real reason to protest the chain? Instead of standing in the parking lot and protesting a choice to no longer sell Confederate flags at their stores, like the irrelevant Arizona man Ritzheimer, how about realizing that big corporations don’t care. They make moves only in response to the market and not out of any sort of benevolence.

JACKSON, Miss. — A man is charged after allegedly setting off an explosive at a Mississippi Walmart Sunday morning.

Marshall W. Leonard, 61, of Tupelo, will be charged with placing an explosive device. Under Mississippi Code 97-37-25 he could get life in prison if convicted, the Tupelo Daily Journal reported.

Tupelo Police Chief Bart Aguirre said a vehicle pulled up to an entrance of the Walmart in North Gloster around 1:30 a.m. CT.

“A white male got out, lit the package and threw it in the vestibule,” said Aguirre. “There was an employee on break, and the suspect told him, ‘You better run.’

“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.”

No one was injured in the incident. The remnants of the homemade explosive device have been sent to the crime lab.

A supporter of the Mississippi flag, Leonard railed against anyone who wanted it removed because it contained the Confederate battle flag. He spoke out against Walmart when the retail giant stop selling items that contained the Confederate battle flag.

Last Wednesday, Leonard posted threats on the Daily Journal Facebook page.

      They would say they are not Muslims. They don’t perform acts of terror. Department of Justice and Department of Homeland security studies say otherwise, but why let facts get in the way.

      This is the problem. Americans are so focused on foreign terrorists, that they ignore their own homegrown domestic terrorists. I blame the media for that. They do not give massive media coverage to all the abortion clinic bombings as well as to the burning and bombing of black churches. White people probably think that burning and bombing of churches is a fifties phenomenon. They would be surprised to learn it still goes on today.

      I’m sure people would be up in arms if DHS started profiling white males of European descent…

      P. S. Last night, went to Steak n’ Shake. No jihadi dogs with taquiyya sauce, but a Chicago dog with the requisites, from green picallili to sport peppers. Also a peppermint milkshake that has probably imperilled my gall bladder until next year.

      Thankee, Sister AJ. And now I’ll have a little more medium hot taqiyya sauce on my jihadi dog.

      I am sure that Marshall’s religious beliefs were not part of his terroristic tendencies. I can sense that since he is not a Muslim. We can’t say that about Faisal Mohammad, the UC Merced stabber since first of all he is a Muslim (and -gasp- used to go to the mosque as well) but more importantly Muslims because of their super stealth Islamist genes don’t suffer from mental disease. Forget that thing about Faisal being angry, not being part of the study group – it’s just a charade….ssshhhh it’s Islam.
