White supremacists charged with plotting to kill Obama  

This is really terrifying. Two men have been charged with plotting to hold a "killing spree" against African-Americans, ending with assassinating Barack Obama. Shit like this really makes me wonder how some people can claim that racism doesn't exist anymore. The men, who were a mere 18 and 20 years old, were, not surprisingly, white supremacists.

The men planned to kill more than 100 African-Americans, including 14 who would be beheaded, according to the affidavit. But federal law enforcement sources said there was no evidence Cowart, of Bells, Tennessee, and Schlesselman, of West Helena, Arkansas, had any details of Obama's schedule.

"We take this very, very seriously but we see no evidence these guys have the ability or the wherewithal to pull off what they say they wanted to do," one law enforcement source said.

According to an affidavit from the federal agent who questioned them, Cowart and Schlesselman planned to charge at Obama with a car, firing from the windows as they went. They would be dressed in white tuxedos and top hats during the attempt, the affidavit states.

My God. Full story here.

What next?
