Texas Man Arrested For Attempting To Blow Up Confederate Statue In Public Park
Someone tried to plant a bomb in a public park in hopes of destroying a statue. No, this wasn’t Syria or Afghanistan. It was in was in Houston, Texas. And no it wasn’t ISIS. Right now, we don’t know if he was acting alone or if he was part of a group. However, what we do know is that his actions are eerily similar to other terrorist organisations.
On Saturday night, Andrew Schneck, 25, was spotted by a Houston park ranger kneeling in bushes in front of the Dowling monument on Saturday. The idiot tried to drink the liquid explosive he had brought with him when the Ranger approached him, but he ended up spitting it out. Yes, nitgroglycerin and HMTD don’t taste very good.
The ranger then asked if he planned to harm the statute [sic] , and he said he did because he did not “like that guy,” according to a sworn statement submitted in federal court by an FBI agent investigating the case.
Schneck was holding two small boxes that included a viable explosive, a timer, wires connected to a homemade detonator, a battery and an explosive compound. He told law enforcement he had other chemicals at his home on Albans Road near Rice University.
Just yesterday the petition to recognise AnitFa as a terrorist organisation passed the required signatures. I’ll repeat that we don’t know which organisation Schneck belongs to, but it’s clear where he is getting his inspiration from. BLM and AnitFa have all been pushing for Confederate statues to be taken down. Just last week, protesters pulled down a statue of a Confederate soldier in North Carolina.
I think everyone who reads in this site agrees with me when I say shit like this isn’t ok. People can’t be going around planting bombs because they don’t ‘like that guy’. I don’t see AntiFa nor BLM denouncing this guy. In fact, I would be surprised if I don’t see people protesting his arrest like they did for Takiyah Thompson.

Let me know what you guys think of this shit fest.
EDITOR’S NOTE: I just read that AntiFa smashed and vanidalised a 225-year old monument to Christopher Columbus today.

The vandal left a sign by the destruction, saying “Racism: Tear it down,” and another sign saying “The future is racial and economic justice.”
