HEY, WAIT, I THOUGHT POLITICAL VIOLENCE CAME FROM WHITE REPUBLICAN MALES. Woman accused of threatening bomb-plot informant. “A Texas woman faces trial this month in Austin on charges she threatened to kill a government informant who infiltrated an Austin-based group that planned to bomb the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn., last fall. Katyanne Marie Kibby, 25, was indicted in June by a federal grand jury in Austin. She is accused of retaliating against Brandon Darby, the community activist-turned-informant who helped federal prosecutors win convictions against Bradley Neal Crowder, 24, and David Guy McKay, 23. . . . Crowder and McKay built eight of the gasoline firebombs but didn’t use them, a fact law enforcement officials credited to Darby. Members of the Austin protest community heaped scorn on Darby, saying he had betrayed longtime friends and colleagues. ”

Say, wanna bet that if it had been “Tea Party” protesters building the firebombs instead of lefty Austinites this would be getting a lot more press? It’s all about the narrative . . . .
