This will be used to justify the infamous 'veterans are potential terrorists' memo from DHS from two years ago. It gives ammo to those who want to stifle discussion of Muslim terrorism by pointing out to a 'non Muslim white guy'.
Which is why I put the headline 'Timothy McVeigh joined by new Arizona Nut Job'.
A nut job however, is not a conspiracy, is not a religious group which justifies these things. A nut-job - is a nut-job, whilst a Jihadi is not crazy, rather assumed crazy by those refusing to listen to him and his supporters.
