Great. That is all we need. Idiots like these. This will no doubt cause some that are undecided to vote for Obama out of sympathy. A kind of backlash so to speak. The country is going insane.

Government Foils Skinhead Plot to Assassinate Obama
Skinheads planned to kill Obama and 102 others in Tennessee.

Federal agents have disrupted a plot to assassinate Barack Obama and shoot or decapitate dozens of black students in Tennessee, the ATF said Monday.

In court records unsealed Monday, federal agents said they disrupted plans to rob a gun store and target a predominantly African-American high school by two neo-Nazi skinheads. Agents said the skinheads did not identify the school by name.

A source in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives told FOX News that the two skinheads, who were picked up in Crockett County, Tenn., were plotting to shoot 88 black students and decapitate 14 others described as non-whites. The source said officials believe the suspects were planning to attempt an assassination against Obama.

The numbers 88 and 14 are symbolic in the white supremacist community.

But officials could not describe how advanced or credible the plot was, nor could they say if they had contacted the Obama campaign.

Jim Cavanaugh, special agent in charge of the Nashville field office for the ATF, said the suspects also sought to go on a national killing spree, with Obama as its final target.

"They said that would be their last, final act -- that they would attempt to kill Sen. Obama," Cavanaugh said. "They didn't believe they would be able to do it, but that they would get killed trying."

Obama spokesman Bill Burton said the campaign would have no comment on the alleged plot.

The men, Daniel Cowart, 20, of Bells, Tenn., and Paul Schlesselman 18, of West Helena, Ark., are being held without bond. Agents seized a rifle, a sawed-off shotgun and three pistols from the men when they were arrested. Authorities alleged the two men were preparing to break into a gun shop to steal more.

Attorney Joe Byrd, who has been hired to represent Cowart, did not immediately return a call seeking comment Monday.

Cowart and Schlesselman are charged with possessing an unregistered firearm, conspiring to steal firearms from a federally licensed gun dealer, and threatening a candidate for president.

FOX News' Catherine Herridge and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

The country is definitely going insane and down the tubes. The minority decides for the majority, people get their daily news and ethical stances from the daily show with john stewart, and many people think that our society should be an "anything goes" society. If you take a stand for something you are a prude or old fashioned. And even though I don't want nobama running our country I definitely don't have feelings of hate for him. Nazi's, skinheads and groups alike have true hate. I can say with certainty that I never recall truly having feelings of hate for anyone. I have felt disgust or dissapointment but never true hate. These people definitely give nobama an advantage with their outright discrimination.


Thank God I'm alive!
Hate groups have been around since the beginning of time, nothing new.

You're right, and whether we're referring to things they did 50 years ago or today, the fact is, they're a cancer on our society that should be eradicated.
