A Blogger Threatens Bomb Threat Against the Gathering of Eagles

A Bomb Threat Against the Gathering of Eagles

The blogger in question claims to be Evan M. Knappenberger. Evan M. Knappenberger is a member of Iraq Veterans Against the War. It looks pretty plausible because Knappenberger uses the same "Gathering of Smeagols" title line. Apparently he has threatened GOE ( Gathering of Eagles) not ONCE but THREE TIMES!

He’s IVAW member Evan M. Knappenberger.

And look at this at that was at the end of his IVAW post:

Peace, and non-violence, always, Evan M. Knappenberger

A blog hosted on blogspot is now threatening a domestic terrorist attack at Gathering of Eagles events.

More of their threats:

Michelle Mallkin pointed out his threat at her blog and Evan Knappenberger has chosen to respond to Michelle since she pointed out his threat.

Wild Thing's comment........

Michelle will be updating and there is more information at her blog about this. We are certainly at war at home as well as in Iraq and Afghanistan. The enemy is not going to win. They are cowards and bullies but they can do damage and hurt people all the same. We need to be stronger then they are, active and not let them even think they can get away with their threats and attacks on our awesome military and Veterans.

* Michelle Malkin

What is wrong with this guy?
Where did he get such hate for people?
He's probably the type that if someone said
something like that about him, he'd probably
sue them or something like that.
He's offensive, rude, uncouth, and just plain
mean hearted.
Oh and a jerk to boot.
I hope no poor girl ever married him.

It would appear that he spent too much time in Iraq. Apparently he didn't pay attention when he joined the military originally to that part of the swearing-in ceremony that goes something like this: "and to uphold and DEFEND the United States against her enemies". That means you just might have to go fight sometime!!! But then of course, it is quite obvious that he believes we were the aggressors!!!

If he is so strongly against the war and the military as a whole, maybe he should answer the question: "Why the hell did you join in the first place"? It is an all volunteer military so no body made him join!!! Probably a "free-loader" looking for Uncle Sam to pay his way like so many other stupid Liberals!!! Maybe we should send him a crying towel embroidered with "Please Mr. Custer - I Don't Want To Go" or "I WANT MY MOMMY"!!!! Sheesh!!!

When Rush Limbaugh made a comment on 'Phoney' soldiers, this guy and his ilk, were the ones defended by Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, i.e., he served but disagreed with the war, yeah right. Just like the VVAW half are PHONEY soldiers and it is just another way to put down the Military.

This guy is a couple of fries short of a happy meal. He should be taken seriously and taken into custody and locked away for Observation. Afterall if you raise a fuss at the airport you are arrested and investigated, this is no different. Lock this looney tunes up. Or the Eagles will do it for them.

This guy sounds like some pint sized punk hiding behind an annonymous computer and making threats, he should be treated like any other Terrorists suspect.

I'm not as nice as Lynn. Send a "one shot" guy against this fool. I'll pay for his gasoline.

This clown is the reason we swear the oath :

I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

Once they find out where he's at, I'm sure the Gathering of Eagles will have no problem executing the "domestic" part of the oath

Probably a REMF!

The idiot does not seem to relaize that the Eagles did not make the foreign policy, they were just doing their job to make America safe for us all while doing what they are told by the political masters of the millitary. His complaints about the foreign policy should be directed against Congress and the UN, which both authorized the use of force against Sadam Hussain.

I do not like to see domestic disturbances, but if it every happened, some how I think the GOE would be happy to have a chance to defend themselfs.

Because they are not the type to shake in their boots.

Thanks Bob for providing the complete oath!! Do you suppose tattooing this on his chest would accomplish anything? Only in America, or more specifically the United States, would this kind of crap be permitted.....because of the very Freedoms this butthead cries about!!!!!

Posted by: John at March 11, 2008 12:49 PM

Thanks all, especially the patriots here. Hopefully he will be found after a few days of hanging out with friends.:)

Lynn I agree, I can't imagine anyone being married to this man, he is totally miserable for one thing and filled with hate like you said.

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 11, 2008 07:20 PM

John, good one!! I agree too why the heck did he join in the first place, because his friends did or what. It is a dedication above and beyond and obviously this man resents it and turns his hate for himself on others.

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 11, 2008 07:22 PM

Mark I agree I hope he is taken seriously and not just fluffed off.

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 11, 2008 07:23 PM

SSgt. Steve, I hope someone keeps an eye on this guy, he doesn't seem to want to stop with his threats.

When I have sent threats to the FBI, things I get from Muslims they have always thanked me and twice they said they were looking into what I sent them. So they can tell a lot of times which ones are serious and which ones are just some hate fillled jerk mouthing off.

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 11, 2008 07:26 PM

Bob that is great, thank you.

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 11, 2008 07:29 PM

Tom yes

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 11, 2008 07:30 PM

Odin, I think so too, the GOE won't stop their rallies just because of this man and his threats. And they are really good about working with the police too when problem arise, they use videos too at most of their rallies which is good for keeping a record of who said what and did what to whom too.

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 11, 2008 07:35 PM

John that is so true. These kind of people use our freedoms against our country, like the Muslims that time or I mean a few times in NY City that rallied against Amercia and said horrible things, burned our Flag and the whole thing and did it all under the fact we have freedom of speech. I sure wish I had been there crossing the street, I would have been so tempted to say something to them.

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 11, 2008 07:37 PM

Jack yes and I bet they keep a very close eye on this character.
