What if space aliens are implementing Plan 9? What if ISIS is performing a black-flag operation? What if Chinese investors are trying to disrupt Wall Street? What if Russian hackers are trying to influence the mid-term elections? What if some knuckle-dragging, lager-swilling, wife-beating, minority-hating, immigrant-bashing white supremacist neo-Nazi with a red MAGA hat and a copy of the Anarchist's Cookbook is even now laughing it up with his buddies out behind the filling station about how he "... putt the feer o gawd inna them commy libril wusses"?

Which is more likely?

By the way, I just googled "MAGAbomber" and received 163,000 results...


It's more likely that it was designed to help the Democrats. Before you mock others try and remember the anthrax hoaxes.

Are you purposely doing the "will resort to ad hominem attacks when cornered" routine to be satirical?

It doesn't seem like a hoax to me, because on the radio news, it was stated that the pipe bombs contained real explosives that could of detonated if handled violently, like in a post office sorting machine.

Apparently, they just didn't have an "ignition fuse" to start them.

This article says they were "packed with powder" which suggests non-explosives.

This article says the powder was explosive.

Stunt is a better word for it than hoax. It seems like a political stunt designed to attract negative attention towards republicans right before the midterms. To get people positing MAGAbomber all over the internet. Possibly in retaliation to Rand Paul's warning of possible violence from the left. That's my theory for now. I'd have the same theory of a set up if the situation was reversed and the Bushs, James Woods and Fox etc had been the targets.

What if it’s not a trump supportor, what if it’s a Bernie supporter is someone who hates both parties. Calling it megabomber is unfair. I dont know if it’s a hoax or not but the left just like with mass shootings motto is never elet a tragedy go to waste.
Left is cold hearted.

That's what I was thinking, because , MAGA is winning everywhere.

MAGA got the Kavanaugh victory, so why have such hatred [rhetorical]?

Last few attackers , the ricin sender and ballpark shooter were both lefties , angry , because they're losing.

George Washington advised against political parties in the first place. If only America had followed his advice, we could have avoided so much that divided us. Instead, the Trumpster racists and nazis are using our own election system against us.

Quote:
"However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion."
- Washington's Farewell Address | Saturday, September 17, 1796

More MAGAbomber targets: James Clapper (former Director of National Intelligence) and Cory Booker (New Jersey Senator/Democrat).

A "conspiracy theory" is something you are ignorant of basically. Anthrax was sent to numerous people, some of them were hoax letters. The press, the government and intelligence were screaming about this and it was Al Qaeda. And then this was used to link Al Qaeda to Iraq and then used as one of the main pretexts to start the war. That's not a conspiracy theory, that's history. There have been numerous cases of 'antisemitic attacks' where horrific things have been written on people's homes and then it turned out the 'victim' wrote the message themselves. I'm sorry you were ignorant of these facts.

Given what I just wrote, someone would need to be in another world not to consider that it could be a hoax.

Given the facts, it's a wonder why you wrote that at all!

The MAGAbomber has been identified as Cesar Sayoc, 56, a registered Republican. He had been living in his van, which was plastered with pictures of Trump. He has a criminal record dating back decades, including a past arrest for making a bomb threat.

He's not the bomber until he has been proven guilty in a court of law. So hold your horses.

Yeah ... right ... MAGAts caught red-handed are never guilty, while anyone who criticizes Trump is never innocent.

:roll: That was sarcasm, by the way.

Even though I hate the Saudis I had the same attitude with the Embassy killing.

If you still think it's a hoax, you are deranged.
