I found this interesting: apparently the alleged bomber while being questioned by police has said that "there could be more devices in the mail". To me that is by itself already an admission of guilt, so why not go ahead and say how many, and maybe who they are addressed to. I guess maybe in his mind he is enjoying the mystique. Perhaps because he is facing a potentil sentence of 58 years he doesn't give damn.

Apparently he's a native american of some kind.
I'm not sure if his true heritage has been revealed.

He CLAIMED that he was a member of the Seminole tribe (even starting a business suggesting he was a native American), but the Seminoles have said that he was not a member. It could be that either he had been told (falsely) that he was native, or he adopted the heritage due to the history/heritage.

He may actually be of Filipino heritage. (Some have traced a potential father to a naturalized immigrant.)

If he had been a:

1-Muslim
2-Jew
3-Trump supporter
4-neo Nazi
5-gay
6-transexual
7-Megan Merkle's brother

I am sure we would have had the usual stories by now. Sounds like he's got no immediate stereotype to explain his behaviour.

Ummm... not sure what you're talking about. He was most definitely a Trump supporter.

His van was covered in pro-Trump/Anti-left wing  decals.
He posted pictures of himself on Facebook that were taken at a Trump rally, holding a pro-Trump sign

Also a CNN SUCKS sign. Sounds a bit Trumpish to me.

Apparently works in the swamp drainage industry.

He does claim to be a Seminole.

As sure as god made little green apples Rush Limbaugh, Fox and a number of other right wing cretins are weighing in trying to suggest the bombing was a false flag deal set up by the Dems. leading up to the mid terms. And I'm sure there will be a good number of the types who watch/listen to that crap will buy it hook line and sinker.

Limbaugh still is. He is showing the pics of the van and saying the stickers are too squarely mounted to be real, and that the bombs were fakes. The man in charge of the FBI (appointed by Trump) says bullshit to that.

Saw an interview with this guy's lawyer and something he said struck me as symbolic of much of the 'alt right' movement. He said this guy, who has been described as a white supremacist, anti-Jewish and anti-gay, who claimed to be a Seminole among other things, was lacking an identity. His father was Filipino, but abandoned the family as a baby. He was, the lawyer thought looking for something to belong to, some kind of identity, and he latched onto Trump.

With religion largely gone, with idea of 'clans' and tribes gone, with smaller and smaller families, a lot of people seem to be lost and seeking something to be a part of.

An ex-girlfriend, a Brit who moved to the states, spoke often of the disconnectedness of the American people.  Separated from family, and things of meaning.  They consider people 'friends' but don't give a shit about them.  And materialism.

That's anecdotal, though, and unfortunately there's no way to measure these things.

This doesn't explain whackjob pipe bombs though.  He could have just volunteered for Trump/GOP campaign like a normal person.

True, but he had, according to the reports, a history of mental illness. This was not his first act of stupid violent dumbness.
