WASHINGTON – Two white supremacists allegedly plotted to go on a national killing spree, shooting and decapitating black people and ultimately targeting Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, federal authorities said Monday.
In all, the two men whom officials describe as neo-Nazi skinheads planned to kill 88 people — 14 by beheading, according to documents unsealed in U.S. District Court in Jackson, Tenn. The numbers 88 and 14 are symbolic in the white supremacist community.
The whole story (link) is disturbing enough, but the business in the highlighted sentence is particularly distressing to my Nascar world. The idea that a bunch of racist honkys (Nascar demographic much?) can co opt the car numbers of two of the members of STR8 Arrow Racing is abominable!!! If you are lost right now, here's the key <>-''' GET3 and I have our own imaginary race team consiting of Dale Jr, Tony Stewart, Kevin Harvick and Carl Edwards. Their car numbers are 88, 20, 29, and 99. Next year Tony's number will be 14. So now a small sect of haters will rejoice when they see me wearing the number 88 on a hat or shirt.
