Federal agents arrested a California man this morning in a terror sting after he allegedly tried to detonate a car bomb at an Oakland bank as part of a Taliban plot.
The FBI said the explosive device that Matthew Aaron Llaneza, 28, of San Jose tried to use was not operable and posed no threat, and that Llaneza’s Taliban contact was actually an undercover agent.
According to authorities, in November Llaneza met with a man he believed was linked to the Taliban and the mujahideen in Afghanistan. At their initial meeting, Llaneza allegedly proposed a car-bomb attack against a bank and making the bombing look like the work of anti-government militias. According to the criminal complaint, Llaneza wanted to spark a government crackdown and a right-wing backlash that would lead to civil war.
Emphasis by Jawas, but it’s the key point in the story.
Just like murderer and LAPD failure Chris Dorner, who wants his rampage to be part of the push for gun control, there are leftist zealots who’ve so firmly embraced the cause that they will kill others just to get government to come after you. This is an ideological movement by individuals who believe in the leftist cause so firmly that they will do whatever it takes to get the agenda through. These people want Cloward and Piven Strategy through violence as well – they want to destroy the US.
They aren’t all George Soros, some of them are just terrorists like Bill Ayers and Brett Kimberlin.
