Man Bombs Walmart Because It Stopped Selling Confederate Flags


Mississippi – Police have arrested a man for throwing an IED (Improvised explosive device) into a Walmart store on Sunday because he was enraged that the store stopped selling Confederate flag’s and related paraphernalia.

Marshall W. Leonard, 61, of Tupelo, will be charged with placing an explosive device. Under Mississippi Code 97-37-25 he could get life in prison if convicted, the Tupelo Daily Journal reported.

In what should be all over media outlets as an act of domestic terrorism, Tupelo Police Chief Bart Aguirre describes Leanard pulling up to the Walmart entrance, lighting the bomb and throwing it into the store.

We can only imagine the media frenzy surrounding this incident should the tables be turned and a Black Lives Matter activist who wanted the flag taken down had thrown an IED into a Walmart store. The level of villainization of the entire BLM moment would be in full force, labeling them all with one broad stroke as domestic terrorists.

Domestic Terrorismterrorism practiced in your own country against your own people the calculated use of violence (or the threat of violence) against civilians in order to attain goals that are political or religious or ideological in nature

The fact of the matter is that Marshall Leonard’s bombing of the Walmart store is an act of domestic terrorism and he should be facing those charges also.

Aguirre states that a vehicle pulled up to the night entrance of the North Gloster Walmart around 1:30 a.m. “A white male got out, lit the package and threw it in the vestibule,” said Aguirre.

After lighting the bomb and throwing it into the store Aguirre states, “There was an employee on break, and the suspect told him, ‘You better run.’

“The employee did run and was away from harm when the package went off. ”

Leonard then sped from the scene in his car, a silver Mazda covered with Confederate flag stickers and flying a four-foot-long Mississippi state flag, which prominently features the Confederate Battle flag. A cop stopped him for running a red light near the Walmart and he was taken into custody without incident.

Luckily no one was injured in the bomb attack. The remnants of the improvised explosive device (IED) have been sent to the crime lab.

A supporter of the Mississippi flag, Leonard railed against anyone who wanted it removed because it contained the Confederate battle flag. He spoke out against Walmart when the retail giant stop selling items that contained the Confederate battle flag.

Last Wednesday, Leonard posted threats on the Daily Journal Facebook page. (Apparently unnoticed by the NSA’s domestic spying program)

“Journal corporate, you are on final warning,” he wrote Oct. 28. “You are part of the problem. As a result of this, y’all are going down, along with Walmart, WTVA, Reeds department store, and all the rest of the anti-American crooks. I’m not kidding. No messing around anymore!”
