They Got the White People's Terrorism Discount

A federal judge in Minneapolis on Wednesday sentenced another member of a far-right extremist group to prison on terrorism charges.

[Asswipe #1] 24, of Hampstead, got on the FBI's radar after he and [Aswipe 32], 32, of New Brighton, Minnesota, showed up with guns at protests in Minneapolis two years ago that followed the police murder of George Floyd.

[Both asswipes] were part of the Boogaloo Bois, a loose-knit organization that hopes to foment civil war in the U.S.

The men each pleaded guilty to supporting a foreign terrorist organization after trying to sell weapons to an FBI informant posing as a member of Hamas.

U.S. District Judge Michael Davis sentenced [#1] to four years in prison. The sentence is a year more than he gave [#2] in March. But Davis said he'd consider reducing [#1]'s sentence to three years if he follows through on his agreement to cooperate with prosecutors.

Noting that the 48-month term is far less than other terrorism defendants he sentenced in recent years, Davis told [#1] that he got "one heck of a break."

No fucking shit. Back when the diligient agents at Fart, Barf and Itch were sweeping up mouthy young Muslim men, they were getting sent them away for ten to thirty years. But these guys get a much shorter sentence for essentially the same crimes.

You are free to speculate on reasons other than the obvious.
