Man Who Allegedly Bombed NAACP Says He Meant To Bomb Tax Office
[su_right_ad]That probably won’t get him off the hook.
According to Channel 9 News in Colorado Springs, Colorado, police just arrested Thaddeus Murphy in connection with the bombing of an NAACP office earlier this year.Details are forthcoming, but early reports state that Murphy claims he wasn’t trying to harm the NAACP office, but a local tax office connected to it.
The bomb, also called an improvised explosive device (IED), was set off next to the exterior wall of the local offices of the Colorado Springs NAACP headquarters. According to the FBI and pictures from the scene, a gas can next to the bomb, intended to make the destruction worse, did not catch fire when the bomb was detonated.

Another false narrative crashes and burns. I was called a racist (and more vile names) by the open minded here for suggesting the obvious, that the NAACP wasn’t the target.

You were a well known racist, even before this story. That is the hazard of becoming the resident troll, everyone here knows you.

How is this anti government? there is a tax accountant, the NAACP and a barber shop in the building. That would be like bombing a butcher shop because you’re mad at the USDA

pitiful… when telling truth sounds like a reason to go, oh, well okay then.. you were trying to ‘take care’ of a real problem.. The guy prob thought he would get a free pass. We do need to dissolve this irs AND rewrite tax code.. his solution was not going to fix any of that.. only injure people trying to work.. what a nut job.. he did not look at the bigger picture… and his solution is never the right way to go… violence does nothing but hurt innocent people… we need our laws followed.. to get rid of progressive left agenda that is affecting our TAXES and a whole slew of other things in our country right now. We need someone who will just follow the laws.. and let our GREAT form of gov WORK the way it is supposed to. We need to DIAL DOWN the reasons that POLITICS have the ability to sway public opinion and get back to taking care of business.. an administration that follows the RULE OF LAW.. not writes their own dictates will be a good start.

man, you’re brain fk’d by the right so bad. i almost feel sorry for you.
NO I DON’T!

Your lawful evil aren’t you? I recognize your alignment with the universe. You think law triumphs over all despite whether it is good or evil. Well I got news for you, it don’t. If law is not backed by the power of good, revolution festers. All you want to do is use the rule of law to promote your own selfish agenda and ignore all those that could use a helping hand, that is unless they kiss your ugly ass and beg for help. You need realignment, real bad.

He’s clearly a brain trust.
mea_mark February 20th, 2015 at 7:31 pm
I bet he just thought he was getting a 2 for 1 deal. Now that he got caught, he’s just trying to minimize the jail time.

Probably, most of us think it sucks to pay taxes and I believe most of us are not racist pieces of garbage. The jury might not think he is so horrible by trying to blow up what he thought was the IRS.
bluejayray February 21st, 2015 at 10:18 am
I don’t think it sucks to pay taxes–I’d just like to see us get something FOR them besides another effing war or aircraft carrier or filthy rich Romney.
Red Eye Robot February 22nd, 2015 at 10:10 am
he was trying to blow up an accountant’s office because he claims the accountant destroyed his tax records, how do you get he was trying to attack the irs?
whatthe46 February 20th, 2015 at 8:50 pm
exactly. one would be a hate crime punishable by serious jail time. the other not so much. hell, i’d lie too if i got caught.
bluejayray February 21st, 2015 at 10:17 am
…assuming that you would even do it at all…

i’m a big chicken. bomb? i’m afraid of firecrackers.
Red Eye Robot February 22nd, 2015 at 10:21 am
And the stars aligned perfectly, He wanted to bomb the NAACP and they just happen to have an office in the same building as his tax accountant who he happens to have a beef with so he placed a bomb on the side of the building FURTHEST from the NAACP office. His plot was so clever and devious that SPECIAL AGENTS of the FBI were completely fooled

He’s trying to appeal to tea baggers, obviously another republican presidential primary candidate.
Red Eye Robot February 22nd, 2015 at 10:07 am
How does trying to torch a tax accountants office appeal to any group?
Red Eye Robot February 21st, 2015 at 3:22 am
Again, more false Narrative. “Murphy reportedly told federal agents he was in a rage over his financial problems and his accountant wasn’t returning his phone calls or giving him back his tax records. He believed his accountant had intentionally destroyed the documents, and wanted to send him a warning with the bomb.”

Something you would do
Anomaly 100 February 21st, 2015 at 11:04 am
This does not change the fact that you leave racist-type comments.

So you’re saying this bagger was too stupid to remember his tax preparer office?
Hate-Crime special circumstances carries the death penalty: In broad daylight on Tuesday morning, a bomb (IED), was set off next to the exterior wall of the local offices of the Colorado Springs, Colorado, NAACP headquarters. According to the FBI and pictures from the scene, a gas can next to the bomb, intended to make the destruction worse, did not catch fire when the bomb was detonated. The balding white male teabagg in a dirty pickup truck is now arrested. http://www.politicususa.com/2015/02/20/homeland-security-warns-wing-extremists-equal-greater-threat-isis.html

Either way, the tea baggers and racists in prison will make him a hero and give him protection.

Conservatives will emphasize his mental illness in an attempt to absolve themselves morally.
But this is exactly how extremist violence works!
The leaders who spout the hate rhetoric don’t get their hands bloody. That’s done by the crazies who take the rhetoric seriously.
Rush Limbaugh —> Timothy McVeigh
Bill O’Reilly —> Scott Roeder

Thanks for clearing that up

MSNBC’s chris hayes show on the NAACP bombing used this photo to illustrate the destruction. It’s a restaurant in France near a Mosque
