Man admits plotting RNC bombing

According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, a "23-year-old Michigan man has admitted to plotting to set off a homemade bomb in the tunnels near the Xcel Energy Center, hoping it would cause a power failure and prompt cancellation of the Republican National Convention."

Matthew B. DePalma of Flint, pleaded guilty in federal court in Minneapolis Tuesday to illegally possessing Molotov cocktails.

According to the plea agreement:

DePalma spent about 90 minutes at the Hennepin County Library on Aug. 18 researching recipes for homemade bombs. He bought the supplies for Molotov cocktails a few days later.

He said that if he could bomb the Xcel Center on Sept. 1, "they might call off the convention."

He added that a "power outage would say a lot" and that it was his "main purpose." DePalma also said that he would like to bomb the Xcel Energy Center on Sept. 4 so that the convention would "end with a bang."

On Aug. 22, DePalma allegedly made two jugs of a homemade napalm-like substance for use in the Molotov cocktails. He was seen traveling to a remote location in Rosemount to allegedly assemble and test the Molotov cocktails.

Depalma faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. Sentencing has yet to be scheduled.

Of course the bonehead liberals castigated the St. Paul for "heavy-handed tactics," but guess what: it saved lives and prevented damage and disruptions.

So where are the idiot Leftist activists that claimed the St. Paul police department had overstepped their bounds while committing illegal searches?

They're no where to be found.

You see, the Left, like their Islamic brethren, think they can usurp our rights by screaming the loudest, bullying, and intimidation.

Furthermore, they love to fabricate untruths, especially against Christians, hard-working folks, and men/women in uniform.

A pertinent issue, if the Left decides to get REALLY tough is this, which political party do most of the gun owners in this country constitute?
