Jim Watkins, the owner of the hate-filled message board 8chan, will give evidence to Congress Thursday after being subpoenaed by the House Homeland Security Committee.

Watkins will tell the committee that his website is about preserving democracy and countering repressive regimes, a place where classic video games are shared and "down-home recipes are traded."

Oh, and, every now and then, someone shares the details of their plan for a domestic terror attack.
