Dangerous Precedent


Artist – Steve Sack

In other news, the tri-corner hat wearing man who unloaded on multiple government buildings in Austin, Texas last week belonged to what I would describe as a religious group for white supremacists.

Police believe McQuilliams was associated with the Phineas Priesthood, an anti-Semitic, anti-multiculturalism group that opposes biracial relationships, same-sex marriage, taxation and abortion. Authorities found a copy of “Vigilantes of Christendom,” a book linked to the group, in the rental van McQuilliams used during the attacks, NBC Austin affiliate KXAN reported.

It shouldn’t need to be said, but in these times we live in I believe the chief of police deserves a nod for calling this man exactly what he is — a “lone wolf terrorist.”
