Report from Cincinnati: It’s All Bananas

H/T Scissorhead Moeman

Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) email thingie has the rundown about the dude who attacked an FBI building in Cincinnati,

THE LATEST IN CINCINNATI — “The armed man who attempted to breach the Cincinnati FBI building in Sycamore Township Thursday was shot and killed by police after a chase and a prolonged standoff, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol,” the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Quinlan Bentley and Brook Endale report.

The man, RICKY WALTER SHIFFER, was present at the Capitol during the Jan. 6 attack, according to NBC, citing officials familiar.

What a weird coinkydink.

And then there’s this: “A social media account bearing the name of Ricky Shiffer … made a post on [Truth Social,] the social media platform founded by Donald Trump, referencing an attempt to storm an FBI office and encouraging others online to prepare for a revolutionary-type war. The post about the FBI office attack was made minutes after the Ohio State Highway Patrol said the incident at the FBI office in Cincinnati began, shortly after 9:15 a.m.,” CNN’s Paul Murphy, Josh Campbell and Brynn Gingras report.

Side note: I read the post yesterday (and forgot to bookmark it), but it sounded like he knew he would be killed doing this, so dude had a martyr complex. It’s not that hard to grasp his motivation in all of this. But I digest

Interesting observation from Jamie Dupree last night at 10:09 p.m.: “I checked the Twitter accounts of all GOP lawmakers from Ohio in Congress, as well as the Governor, Lt. Gov., and state Attorney General. No comments at all about the Cincinnati incident. No thank you notes for law enforcement. It was like nothing happened.”

And that’s not hard to understand either. As long as Hair Füror needs to make the FBI his enemy to keep the base riled up so they don’t realize how badly exposed he is, none of the usual Law-and-Order rhetoric from the Republicans will be acceptable.

Steve Scalise is not very good at this if he did not anticipate this question, and good lord, imagine being out-smarted by Steve Doocy!

    I saw a report on this posted on twitter – they reported from Clinton County, OH.
    WTH, was the shooter planning on running to there in order to make some statement? I mean, why else report from Clinton? That county is way south of Cincinnati.

      Actually, it’s a bit north and a ways west of Cinci, but that is where the car chase ended and the standoff took place.

        I am not good at directions, so thanks.
        At first I thought the FBI office was in Clinton County and the shooter picked it because of that, maybe.
        But I wouldn’t put it past the convoluted thought processes of a conspiracy guy to attract the attention of the cops and then run to Clinton County as “proof” that the Clinton’s are behind his ensuing death. I mean, they come up with crazier stuff by looking for tweets from “Q” and inventing story lines to fit non-sequitur posts.
