Excerpt from above:

It appears a VBIED detonated in downtown Nashville this morning, causing extensive damage. Police had already been called when the RV exploded & authorities are treating it as ”intentional”. FBI & EOD at the scene...FBI believes person of interest, 63 y.o 'Anthony Q. Warren' died in the blast, making it the first suicide car bombing on U.S. soil since 1927. He was allegedly motivated by 5G conspiracy theories to attack AT&T.

Here's another link:

Anthony Quinn Warner is a 63-year-old Tennessee man who is a person of interest in the explosion of a parked RV in downtown Nashville, Tennessee, on Christmas morning, according to CBS News. An RV similar to the one used in the Nashville bombing was parked at Warner’s home address in images available on Google Maps and Google Earth, Heavy discovered.

Jeff Pegues, a CBS News journalist, wrote on Twitter, “@CBSNews has learned the name of a person of interest tied to the explosion that rocked #Nashville on #Christmas Day. Multiple sources tell us that Anthony Quinn Warner, a Nashville area resident, had a similar make and model RV.”

The year 2020 eh? Apparently this white male was a 5G conspiracy believer so in all likelihood this incident will probably dismissed as 'act of a loner' rather then a form of terrorism.

Thank god we're not at risk from 5g any more.

Seriously imagine how US society evolved from pre-9/11 to now? In 19 years white conspiracy mongerors are openly aping the tactics of Al Qaeda that the US went to war with in the aftermath of 9/11 and are engaging in the same type of incendiary grievance mongering to justify atrocities from their side?

Wonder if he intended to be a suicide bomber or just fucked up the fuse. These secular issue terrorists tend not to be so keen to die themselves.

What an idiot. I guess his hatred of 5G meant that he didn't want to actually kill people, hence the (pretend?) gunfire and the bizarre evacuation countdown.

A deranged man blows himself up in an RV and Kan attributes it all to the evolution of "US society".

You missed an interesting point of this farce. That the RV in question began a loudspeaker announcement saying words to this effect: "This RV will blow up in fifteen minutes.". And continuing a countdown.

Hence the small reality that no one was killed in the explosion.

Where did the body parts come from?

GyratingTrampoline - 27 Dec 2020 22:56:29 (#9 of 73)

I'm surprised the weren't a few mask dodgers standing their ground in the basis that it's their body, their freedom, and the imminently exploding camper van is a fake news hoax

DonkeyOT - 27 Dec 2020 22:57:30 (#10 of 73)

What's an RV?

GyratingTrampoline - 27 Dec 2020 22:58:40 (#11 of 73)

Camper van

Right-wing voter.

You missed an interesting point of this farce.

Well, no, I didn't. Hence the bit where I said he didn't want to actually kill people, hence the (pretend?) gunfire and the bizarre evacuation countdown.

this incident will probably dismissed as 'act of a loner'



Or take his side more likely, like with that teenager who murdered BLM protesters and was called a hero by many

RV: recreational vehicle (I think). ie campervan.

In 19 years white conspiracy mongerors are openly aping the tactics of Al Qaeda

Including using cars as weapons eg Charlottesville. Also, as the US and other Western govts have allied with AQ when convenient, why not?

HoHoHoff - 28 Dec 2020 07:55:59 (#17 of 73)

I'm not sure this guy was a white supremacist. A 5G conspiraloon radicalised by Facebook, no doubt.

thePiMan - 28 Dec 2020 08:06:12 (#18 of 73)

RV= meth lab from breaking bad.

DogBreath - 28 Dec 2020 08:09:01 (#19 of 73)

Did anyone else get hurt?

At what point does 'conspiracy theory' become 'mental health impacting paranoia'? If he really blew up the building for the reasons suggested, that's not even terrorism, but a mental health episode.
