Looman’s ‘No Hiring Until Obama Gone’ Story Teaches Something Dark About America

206

The media was quick to crawl all over on the story of Bill Looman, the Waco, Ga. owner of U.S. Crane, LLC who posted signs on his truck saying “No Hiring Until Obama is Gone.”

Other than those media outlets that picked up our original reporting on the Examiner, the rest of the media – here and overseas – ran with the WXIA-TV (Atlanta) story that portrayed Looman as just a misunderstood good ol’ boy who wants to hire everybody but just can’t afford to because of Obama’s policies. They don’t mention which of Obama’s policies, in particular, are keeping Looman from hiring anybody. They ignore the fact that he told a member of Americans Against the Tea Party that he would start hiring again “when the Muslim is out of the White House.”

One could almost excuse the Media’s laziness… if not for the fact that they have been presented with the facts in the case. Not supposition, not opinion. Facts. And those facts have been ignored.

Quite the impressive resume!

1. Looman published an anti-Obama rant calling him:

A MARXIST/ISLAMIC TOOL TO TEAR APART OUR ONCE GREAT NATION.

HE RUINED OUR ECONOMY ANY WAY HE COULD TO FURTHER BRING OUR COUNTRY TO ITS KNEES OR HUMBLE AMERICAN AND CHRISTIAN PRIDE.

In this lengthy, all-caps manifesto, Looman talks about efforts he has taken to prepare himself and his family for the upcoming holocaust that Obama will certainly bring to America.

We have provided these media outlets with links to the original document. Ignored.

2. Looman was apparently involved in a botched terror plot in Madisonville, TN in April 2010.

A fellow Examiner named Radell Smith reported the original story.

Dallas, Ga resident Darren Wesley Huff was convicted today by a jury of his peers for his role in the alleged takeover plot of a Monroe County Courthouse. Huff was ordered taken into custody immediately after the jury reached its verdict on Tuesday after the 8-women and 4-man jury veered towards a mistrial Monday afternoon. Sentencing for the 41-year-old Georgia “birther” will take place in February, according to CBS News.

Huff came to the attention of law enforcement after bragging to a Chase Bank teller that he and fellow militiamen were planning to pay a visit to Monroe County Courthouse, where fellow milita and retired Navy man Walter Fitzpatrick had failed to secure an indictment against Pres. Barack Obama.

In an earlier story, she points out how Huff was accompanied by 12 fellow Georgia militamen who cut and ran back across the border when they saw the heightened police presence, caused by Huff’s bragging about the upcoming event.

We established for the media that Looman was one of these 12 “apostles of hate.” Walter Fitzpatrick, mentioned in Smith’s story, filed a report to the right wing hate site “The Post and E-Mail” dated July 16, 2011…

The Monroe County Courthouse (two blocks away) was swarming. Federal Agents at that location.

Police/Sheriff’s cruisers everywhere, circulating the streets as sharks roam and converge on a meal.

Sergeant of Marines Bill Looman reports two helos spotted as an airborne umbrella.

If Looman wasn’t there, how could he report on the helicopters?

Again, properly sourced and presented to the MSM. Again, ignored.

It’s good to be head of the militia! Until Secret Service drops by!

We presented proof that the Tennessee Oath Keepers organization was miffed by these North Georgia militamen sticking their noses into Tennessee business. We posted an e-mail from a Tennessee Oath Keeper to Bill Looman asking them to stay the hell out of Tennessee for a May 4 hearing, lest they make a bad situation worse.

Your recent appearance in Madisonville did nothing but corroborate what the local residents and police had hypothesized. Schools were put on standby and municipal offices were closed in anticipation of what turned out to be a non-event or would have been if it had not been for your traffic stop.

The “traffic stop” is the one in which Huff was found to have a stockpile of weapons and ammo.

Again, sourced. Again, proven. Again, ignored by the MSM.

We provided proof that, as a result of the e-mail, Bill Looman posted a rant about being drummed out of Oath Keepers.

I have been made aware that because of my actions surrounding the events that are occurring in Madisonville, TN that I am pending, what I term, a discharge from Oath Keepers.

I feel that I am being considered a rogue. If I am relieved, I will consider this an insult somewhat.

I will not be portrayed as being stupid, ill informed, and a coward.

Sourced. Verified. Ignored by the media.

We posted a screencap listing Looman as “Administrator” of the North Georgia Militia Facebook page, a page that has been scrubbed of his presence since his visit from the Secret Service following the Madisonville debacle.

WE also provided a story link from the Southern Poverty Law Center about what the North Georgia Militia has been up to recently, with four elderly gents arrested for planning to

murder people throughout Georgia.

The man described as the group’s leader, 73-year-old Frederick Thomas, was recorded at a meeting that month allegedly saying, “There’s no way for us, as militiamen, to save this country, to save Georgia, without doing something that’s highly illegal – murder. … When it comes to saving the Constitution, that means some people gotta die.”

Sourced. Verified. Ignored by the media.

The story included a screen cap taken before Looman scrubbed his page, listing his services to the right wing militia movement.

10 YEAR MARINE VETERAN, CEO/OWNER OF U.S. CRANE, LLC., PRESIDENT OF BEAVER RUN LANDOWNDERS ASSOCIATION, OATH KEEPER, MEMBER OF RTC (RESTORE THE CONSTITUTION), FOUNDER OF P.A.S.T. (PATRIOTS AGAINST SOCIALIST TAKEOVER), FOUNDER OF L.A.M.B (LIBERALS ARE MORONS BIGTIME)

Sourced. Verified. Ignored by the media.

We sent them a screencap, now scrubbed from Looman’s facebook page in which one of Looman’s “friends” calls for Obama to be executed. AND LOOMAN AGREES!

Sourced. Verified. Ignored by the media.

So, what does this tell us about the mainstream, corporate-owned media?

They don’t want to know.

Fox News Nation just didn’t want to hear the truth!

For instance, one of the places I sent my story link was the Fox News Nation blog. After publishing hundreds of comments on the story, most of which support Looman, my comment from yesterday afternoon remains unapproved.

Other media outlets? They just ignored the evidence of Looman’s actual nature and ran with WXIA’s report of the po’ misunderstood Suthern Feller who WOULD hire folks if it weren’t for that Obammer feller and his misguided policies and what not.

And it’s not for your Latter Day Iconoclast’s lack of trying to alert them. We sent several messages with the story link to WXIA. I sent several of the same to other TV stations that carried the WXIA version of the story, including the Daily Mail in London. We tweeted the story to all the major media outlets we could find on Twitter. we even sent the story to left wing blogs. Everyone is too busy reporting on the elections and OWS, one supposes.

But this isn’t the only thing we’ve learned in our dealings with the Looman story. We’ve also learned something dark. Something scary about America. Something we will share with you in our next story.
