What is never allowed to go around...still comes around

Remember the early faux outrages of the Obama Administration when DHS nixed a study of right-wing terror groups because "there just is no such thing"?

Apparently, just like the slaughter at the Wisconsin Sikh Temple this did not actually happen then:
A Texas prosecutor and his wife who were shot dead over the weekend may have been the targets of a white supremacist group, a US congressman said on Monday.
Republican Ted Poe speculated that the Aryan Brotherhood may have carried out the killings of Kaufman County district attorney Mike McLelland, 63, and his wife, Cynthia, 65.

The couple were killed two months after Mark Hasse, the assistant district attorney for Kaufman County, was shot dead. Kaufman County was among a number of agencies to have brought a racketeering case against the Aryan Brotherhood, a white supremacist prison gang. In December the Texas department of public safety had warned the Brotherhood was "actively planning retaliation against law enforcement officials".
Good thing these things don't actually happen.

law enforcement is nervous.

and guess what, the DA and his wife were both armed and he had hx in military and still they didn't stop their murder with the firepower the NRA is so sure of.

when do we get to call on the nra for being a terrorist enabler and attempting the overthrow of the gov?

cause it's what this is! and the AB has long been a terrorist org.
