Breaking News: Tea Party Guide to DC revised -- White House and Mall no longer safe
Funny. When Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews and all the other (then) all-white hosted MSNBC shows attacked me for being a racist, when I wrote a guide to DC for tea party tourists and people coming to Glenn Beck’s rally (http://www.theatlanticwire.com/politics/2010/08/tea-partier-s-warning-filled-guide-to-d-c/19070/) they created an fictional map that claimed that the ONLY area I thought was safe was around the Mall and White House. (Apparently La Madcow doesn't know the Red, Blue, and Orange lines extend far into Maryland and Virginia, just as she does not know that all the black people she saw in Crestwood, Colonial Village, Shepherd's Park and other upper middle class neighborhoods west of 14th Street NW, are the homeowners, not the help.)
But then, Rachel Maddow, high off those sharpie fumes she is down on all fours sniffing in that commercial where she spouts off on her passion for research, also had, as they always do at MSNBC, a black journalist on, ONLY to discuss “black” topics, and she chortled that my telling visitors to avoid the Green and Yellow lines on the DC subway would prevent them from sampling the delights of Ben’s Chili Bowl at 13th and U Streets NW. A week or two after her broadcast, there was a noon time shooting on that block at a passing funeral procession.
Now an AK-47 has been used to shoot at the White House. If it turns out it was one of Eric Holder's fast and furious weapons, and the shooter was Hispanic, I guess it will be racist to discuss a black attorney general or a hispanic Occupy activist shooting at a black President. I am sure Garafalo and Maher will explain the racist sub-text in between telling rape jokes about Hasselbeck and Palin on the next Real Slime.
BULLET THAT HIT WHITE HOUSE RECOVERED DAYS AFTER SHOOTING INCIDENT & AK-47 FOUND Posted on November 16, 2011 at 7:10am by Jonathon M. SeidlPrint »Email » Comments (209) Oscar Ortega WASHINGTON (The Blaze/AP) —
The Secret Service says a bullet hit an exterior window of the White House and was stopped by ballistic glass. An additional round of ammunition was also found on the exterior of the White House. The bullets were found Tuesday. The discovery follows reports of gunfire near the White House on Friday. Witnesses heard shots and saw two speeding vehicles in the area. An AK-47 rifle was also recovered. The Secret Service says it has not conclusively connected Friday’s incident with the bullets found on the White House grounds. U.S. Park Police have an arrest warrant out for Oscar Ortega-Hernandez, who is believed to be connected to the earlier incident. ABC has more on Ortega-Hernandez, who is described as mentally ill: Oscar Ortega Police believe the suspect, 21-year-old Oscar Ramiro Ortega of Idaho, is mentally ill. Ortega has an extensive record, ranging from domestic violence to drug charges. Sources say a police investigation has uncovered evidence suggesting Ortega has a fixation on the White House. [...] It’s unclear whether Ortega is capable of launching a sophisticated attack, but police are still fearful of what he might do next. Authorities suspect Ortega has been in the area for weeks, coming back and forth to the Washington Mall. Before the shooting, he was detained by local police at an abandoned house. U.S. Park police say Ortega may have spent time blending in with Occupy D.C. protesters.
The Washington Times reported about the initial incident on Sunday: Investigators were led to Mr. Ortega shortly after the incident after examining evidence found in a vehicle abandon about seven blocks west of the incident, near the base of the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge. Authorities say the White House did not appear to have been targeted. Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan said witnesses heard shots and saw two vehicles racing west on Constitution Avenue. He confirmed an AK-47 assault rifle was recovered and that witnesses saw one driver abandon a vehicle, then run across the bridge toward Arlington. Mr. Ortega is thought to be living in the area and having ties to Idaho. He is described as a white-Hispanic male, about 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds with brown eyes and black hair.
