South Dakota man arrested for threatening to blow up VA hospitals. But don't worry America, he's not a Muslim. Whew!

Courtesy of Grand Forks Herald:

A man indicted on charges for possessing explosives in Gregory County made frequent threats about blowing up two South Dakota Veteran's Affairs hospitals, according to a report from a Division of Criminal Investigation special agent. 

Martin Rezac, 59, of Dallas, S.D., was hospitalized on Thanksgiving Day when an explosive device detonated in his home at 413 Des Moines Ave. in Dallas, a small town in south-central South Dakota. 

According to court documents, Rezac "possibly lost several fingers" from both hands and sustained cuts and abrasions to his face due to the explosion. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance after the explosion. 

Earlier this month, a judge approved a warrant for Rezac's arrest. He was indicted and charged with three felonies on Friday. 

On Nov. 27, the day after the explosion, a DCI special agent interviewed Rezac's friend, Allen Kayl, who was in custody in the Winner City Jail. 

Kayl told law enforcement officers that Rezac made several comments about VA hospital staff "pissing him off," court documents state. Kayl said Rezac frequently made comments about blowing up a VA hospital and said he knew how to do it, court documents state. 

When asked if Kayl believed Rezac was capable of doing so, Kayl allegedly "confirmed there was a possibility he would in fact do it."

You KNOW that if this gentleman had been a Muslim from the Middle East that this story would be on a never ending loop over at Fox News.

Instead they recently attacked the President for acknowledging that homegrown domestic terrorists are actually at least as dangerous, if not more dangerous, than Islamic terrorists from other countries:

It shows that he’s out of touch. It shows that when he is going to come forward with a response to a question like that, with some empirical data, to somehow prove that yeah, well, I guess it’s a threat but there have been equal or greater threats, and then it fits into that meme that somehow Americans are a greater threat to other Americans than those abroad that are trying to kill us. That’s wrong, and I think that’s why he’s been having real terrible problems with the American people for a long time. 

Yeah, if the Donald Trump campaign proves nothing else it proves that Americans would rather you lie to them than tell you an uncomfortable truth.

Terrorism is terrorism kids, and it makes little difference which religion to adhere to, or in which country you were born.

    Well, he could not blow his brains out, since he does not have any. So much ignorance in this world, a lot of it right here in the USA.

    "Terrorism is terrorism kids, and it makes little difference which religion to adhere to, or in which country you were born."

    Until you can convince the American population of that - which won't happen until we prove what jackasses people like Trump actually are - nothin will change to make that happen.

    I am a service-disabled veteran and have been so disrespected by VA personnel on so many occasions, that I have seriously wished the building would spontaneously explode. There are so many employed at the VAs across the country (I have experienced terrible problems at facilities in two states) and Secretary Bob McDonald is not the solution.

      What is the solution, in your opinion?

    I'm American and have dual citizenship for only one reason. Terrorists like Trump running for president is at the top of the list. He foments hate and feeds into the most illogical fears of the base. I'd be embarrassed beyond belief if someone like that bought his way into the white house. In the mean time, I'll be doing what I can to gotv.
