Serial Mail Bomber Arrested. And, Duh, He’s a Trumpleton!

Posted by Anthony L. Hall

Next to the pro-Trump stickers plastered all over the white van authorities believe belongs to Cesar Sayoc are the names and photos of dozens of prominent Democrats and media figures — former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, former first lady Michelle Obama, former attorneys general Eric Holder and Loretta E. Lynch and filmmaker Michael Moore. There’s also a sticker declaring: ‘CNN Sucks.’ …

Authorities on Friday arrested Sayoc and identified him as a suspect in the sprawling mail-bomb scare. … Sayoc has been charged with five federal crimes, including transportation of explosives and threats against former presidents, and faces up to 58 years in prison if convicted.

(The Washington Post, October 26, 2018)

I suspect I’m not the only one who breathed a sigh of relief when news broke of this arrest. Not only because it signaled the end of the terror this bomber was inflicting, but also because he turned out to be just the kind of Trump-supporting lunatic you’d expect him to be.

We can imagine all too well the political hay this rabble-rousing president of the United States would have made of this arrest if Sayoc turned out to be a Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, or any kind of Democratic supporter. Even worse if he turned out to be a black or Hispanic one to boot

That said, with all due respect to “innocent until proven guilty,” he will be convicted.

But, notwithstanding the wall-to-wall coverage the media are dedicating to his arrest, I do not think it warrants any further comment. It would also be too sadistic to watch Trump’s defenders immolating themselves intellectually as they try in vain to deny any correlation between this serial bomber and Trump’s incendiary rhetoric.
