Crazy NoDak racist is on hunger strike, says he plans to leave physical body behind

Craig Cobb, to WDAY: "People's comfort level is best when they are amongst their own."
Craig Cobb, the part-African neo-Nazi who's trying to establish a "White Nationalist Community" in the small, unsuspecting city of Leith, North Dakota, is in jail and on a hunger strike he vows will end his earthly existence.

Cobb was arrested and charged for threatening various Leith residents with guns (for a crazy photo of Cobb and his buddy toting rifles around a blighted section of Leith, including a building adorned with a swastika, click here). As of yesterday, he hadn't eaten since being booked into jail.

Check out this bizarre passage from a Bismarck Tribune report:
Cobb, who is taking water, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from jail that he is not on a hunger strike to protest his imprisonment -- though he does feel he is wrongly accused -- but is instead practicing mahasamadhi, a form of spiritual enlightenment in which the physical body is permanently left behind. Cobb said that will happen for him at yuletide, another term for Christmas.
"This is not the only realm, or plane of existence," Cobb said, according to the report, adding that since he's sure he won't get treated fairly by the courts, "better I go to mahasamadhi."

Asked about what lessons he hopes history will take from his "mahasamadhi," Cobb, who faces up to 35 years in prison, said he hopes to raise awareness that "any nascent white movement will be crushed." He considers himself a martyr, the Tribune writes.

Prosecutor Todd Schwarz, meanwhile, doesn't sound like he's sweating the possibility the world may soon contain one less neo-Nazi.

"To a certain degree, if he wants to starve himself, he can," Schwarz told the Tribune.

This guy might be be out there, but how many people has he held up, raped, or murdered? He has a different opinion, but there is no law against that. Leave him alone and address some of the concerns that most white folks have with black crime, and then maybe there will be less people like him.

He does realize that he is practicing a spiritual path that was created by brown people, right?

Hey, Cobb, don't let the door to this existence hit you on the arse on your way out --- although I predict you will be alive and just as hateful as you are today come Christmas Day....and like finding out you are part Sub-Saharan African, you will be finding a new way to spin the failure of yet another of your sad, sick predictions.

Why did so many ex-hippies have to turn into such major assholes?

So... lemme get this straight:  This guy is actively trying to shed the only thing that physically distinguishes him from other people, despite the fact that that is what all his pride and racism is based on?

Good plan buddy.  Hope you succeed.  See you in manahattenmacaroni.

Dan Gustafson, I'm sure they have to give it to him, he just doesn't have to eat it. No money saved when they throw it in the trash.

Starving yourself is not Mahasamadhi. He is very confused. Wow.

Think of all the tax dollars we can save if he doesn't eat.

@Dave Finton   On what basis do you think this jerk Cobb is an ex-hippie?  The opposite seems to be true.

@Daniel Kormick   Just one more conservative trying to pretend he's a victim.

@Shawn Taylor Nah, it can go to feed the four-legged kind of pigs.  Much better use of the nutrients.

I kinda hope the guards eat a big ol' slice of turkey or maybe pumpkin pie in front of him, just to see how determined he really is.

@Ly-Zhou Sherry This story is about a man who lives in North Dakota, not Minnesota. Reading is FUNdamental!

@Saadya Nothing  That he holds incorrect, stupid ideas appears to be obvious.  It's not like he practices a valid form of religion, either Budhism or otherwise.  He just learned a big new word for him, and wanted to show it off, without bothering to learn what it meant first.


I doubt this idiot could spell it properly, much less explain what it really means in any intelligent context.

@ajlalk3 I wish this was specific to NoDak; we have our share fo the same people right here in MN.  The border doesn't keep any of them out.
