Yepper. Whenever I strongly support anything the first thing I do is build a bomb. Can you think of a better way to tell the world “I care”?

Lost causer in aisle 5. Wonder if he was a McDaniel voter.

I’m sure it wasn’t anything dangerous like if he was a Arab-American high-school student and made a clock…

He lives alone, has no job, and flies a 4-foot Confederate flag on his car. Ladies, don’t all call on him at the same time.

He may be proud of his heritage, but I don’t think his heritage is very proud of him.

I grew up in the shadow of Stonewall Jackson’s statue. Trust me, his heritage is absolutely proud of him.

Another über-patriot driving a Mazda. Well, at least it is not a Yankee made car. Just Japanese, and the South has never been at war with Japan!

Bring attention to flying the Confederate flag. I can hear him now. “Judge, it was just a little bomb. I just wanted to get some attention for my cause.”

I live in the outer suburbs in NY state.
At a grocery store recently a pickup truck was driving around with massive US - AND - Confederate flags flapping from sticks stuck in the holes in the back. I mean huge (and likely illegal from a traffic perspective).

The south does not have a monopoly on clueless (and unintentionally hilarious) redneck bigots.

A clear case of domestic terrorism. Charge him as such.

We should just make a parking lot out of Mississippi! I have relatives there and they are about on the same level as this POS is!! Having said that at least it was a Wal-Mart he went after!!

Made in China. Some assembly required. Not to be used by the feeble-minded.

Is there any reason this isn’t domestic terrorism meant to inflict bodily harm, possibly death, and coerce a merchant into a state of fear? Why shouldn’t it result in several decades in jail?

Gee, I didn’t hear about a domestic terrorist attack in the news today.

the package held enough explosive to damage the store if it had been assembled differently

Read: “had it been assembled competently.” Sounds like Cletus was on to something, but couldn’t make out what them scratch marks on the internets was talkin’ about, 'xactly. The Chief probably didn’t want to clearly explain what had gone wrong so the next doofus doesn’t begin where this one left off.
