Remember this revoked license plate from two years ago on this wonderful truck? Well, at the time, the owner argued it was just a huge misunderstanding. The license plate numbers weren’t a coded message declaring his support for white supremacy but messages declaring his support for NASCAR.
“There is absolutely no way I’d have anything to do with Hitler or Nazis,” [Douglas] Story [owner of the truck pictured above] said Wednesday. He contacted The Washington Post after an article about his plate appeared last week; the state, citing privacy rules, had declined to release the identity of the plate's owner. “My sister-in-law and my niece are Jewish. I went to my niece’s bat mitzvah when she turned 13 three years ago. Does that sound like something an anti-Semite would do?”Well, what has Doug Story done since being forced to replace his wrongfully-deemed-racist license plates? Oh, posting his thoughts on President Obama, law enforcement and cultural tolerance on a few message boards. Oh, and buying some hunting guns, too.
A detention hearing will be held Monday for a self-described racist from Virginia who allegedly made threats against President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder before illegally taking possession of a machine gun.Yeah, yeah, but look? He even says he’s not advocating violence. And anyway, he's not an anti-Semite. He even went to a bat mitzvah. That doesn’t sound like a racist Jewophobe to me!
Douglas Howard Story, 48, of Manassas, Va., was arrested Wednesday by the FBI in a shopping mall parking lot, after taking delivery of a semi-automatic AK-47 assault rifle that he had paid $125 to have converted to fully automatic, officials said.
In a November 2008 comment on Stormfront, where he posted as “Confederado,” Story describing his AK-47 as a potential “homeland defense rifle should I need to protect micelf [sic] and my wife from rioting neeegroes [sic].” The same month, he described the president as “brown-filth mulatto,” and wrote, “Now I’m not advocating violence against him, I’m just saying there are White folks out there that are none to [sic] happy with his ‘election.’
The FBI opened its weapons investigation last August after learning Story was posting comments on an Aryan Nations Web site and asking about how to convert a semi-automatic assault rifle to a fully automatic machine gun, court documents say. As the investigation unfolded, an FBI informant engaged Story in various conversations on white supremacy websites. According to an affidavit, “The conversations and posts were reported to the case agent and show the propensity for hatred and violence toward African Americans, Jewish Americans, other minorities and a number of political figures.”But, hey. Have you seen the deer in Virginia? You NEED a semi-automatic weapon to take those suckers down!
The affidavit also quotes Story as having written, “I think there’s one way Obummer would be proven as a mere mortal … if someone puts a 30.06 round into the base of his skill [sic], huh ya think?” In a post referring to the attorney general, Story predicted, “Holder will likely be removed when the administration changes in 2012. Although, personally, I’d prefer removing him from office with a 30.06.”Another patriot gets sent to jail.
