Two Photos Worth a Million Words in Explaining Oregon Militia Leader Blaine Cooper

The pictures say it all.

These two photos are pretty much all you need to know about the leader of the group of armed white men who have taken over the federal building in Oregon, a group the Internet has dubbed Y'all Qaeda.

In the first picture, freedom-loving Blaine Cooper is in his full "militia" garb, ready for an armed struggle with authorities. In the second, he rubs bacon on a Koran before burning it.
