If there is one thing that the mainstream media has been highly effective at as of late, it has been continuing to divide our nation down partisan lines.
This is no mistake, nor is it being self-mitigated in any way. The infotainment industry is simply attempting to foment anger and resentment among Americans for the sake of conflict. The reason being: Conflict creates ratings, ratings create revenue, and the bottom dollar is far more important to them than the moral high ground.
Just how far are they willing to push our national schism? Apparently to the point in which an American soldier was planning to attack the media itself and target a 2020 presidential candidate with a bomb.
An American soldier at Fort Riley in Kansas has been arrested after allegedly discussing an attack on a major U.S. news network, sharing instructions on building a bomb and targeting Beto O’Rourke, authorities announced Monday.
Jarrett William Smith, 24, was charged with one count of distributing information related to explosives and weapons of mass destruction, the Department of Justice said in a news release.
Smith, a private first class infantry soldier, allegedly spoke to an undercover FBI agent last month and discussed plans to conduct an attack in the U.S. He said he was looking for more “radicals” like himself and mentioned killing members of the far-left group Antifa, according to an affidavit.
The method of his madness was downright terrifying.
“A large vehicle bomb. Fill a vehicle full of [explosives] then fill a ping pong ball with [commonly available chemical] via drilling, then injection. Put the ball in the tank of the vehicle and leave. 30 minutes later, BOOM,” Smith allegedly said.
The name of the infotainment organization being targeted by Smith was redacted from the affidavit.
