Police probing report of explosive in truck near Capitol
apnews.com

..A man sitting in a pickup truck outside the Library of Congress told police on Thursday that he had a bomb, prompting a massive law enforcement response to determine whether it was an operable explosive device, people briefed on the matter said.

The truck had no license plates, and when law enforcement noticed it in the morning, authorities reported a possible bomb threat over police radios. Investigators were trying to determine whether the man was holding a detonator. They were communicating with him as he wrote notes and showed them to police from inside the truck, according to three people were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter and spoke on condition of anonymity....

A slow-motion Tim McVeigh. I was wondering when one of his ilk would turn up. If only Trump had returned to Washington in glory we could have peace.

I do wonder what this fascist hillbilly has against libraries. Or maybe I just explained it.

Another example of a self-selected person who wants to decide whether or not my vote counts.

This won't do. The MSM was planning on running bad ol' Taliban stuff 24/7 for the next few days. How dare this Trumptard upset the consent manufacturing apparatus when it goes into full gear...

from Reuters:

The man was identified by his ex-wife, who told Reuters that he had been diagnosed with schizophrenia and had threatened her with firearms in the past. She said she divorced him about eight years ago.

"He's crazy. He pulled a gun on me and his sister, and shot at me numerous times," said the woman.

the "you lost, get over it" crowd from 2016 is now driving truck bombs into downtown DC, because they lost, and they can't get over it

In a way, maybe.

Similar to the January 6 insurrectionists. They were there because voters did not vote they way the insurrectionists wanted the voters to vote. So the insurrectionists decided to override the voting outcome using violence.

Apparently the guy feels his insurance isn't covering enough. I guess this is one way to call attention to this very real problem in America.

NC I wonder if he lives in the house I drove by today with the hand painted sign up that said "--- biden America stolen and ded" with a too faded to read date at the end. All misspellings transcribed direct from the sign.

Definitely the type of person who should have access to guns.

Makes sense, considering he's showing to be such a political extremist when, apparently, 2016 was the first time he had voted in his life; he voted from Trump.

Just more evidence that the mentally ill are attracted to personalities like Trump's.

Fairly broad brush there.
It's a few specific flavors of mental illness. The kind that wears Tapout shirts and thinks they're a badass, while being functionally emasculated in their personal and/or professional lives.

Fairly? I'd say it's a gargantuan broad brush.

Plenty of people whose anxiety is caused by Trump, for example. That's the opposite of liking him.

6/5 pick em this genius thought the Library of Congress is Congress.

Librarians are shady, tbf. Always smashing it on Jeopardy. Someone needs to pay for all the time we had to waste learning the Dewey decimal system.
