‘I am dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on earth’: A self-proclaimed white nationalist planned a mass terrorist attack, the government says
“During unrest target both sides to increase tension,” Hasson wrote in the email, according to the court filings. “In other words provoke gov/police to over react which should help to escalate violence. BLM protests or other left crap would be ideal to incite to violence.”_
In another letter drafted months later to an American neo-Nazi leader, cited in the court filing, Hasson called for a “white homeland.” He sent the letter to himself nearly two months after the neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, where torch-carrying white supremacists clashed with anti-racist protesters._
“I never saw a reason for mass protest or wearing uniforms marching around provoking people with swastikas etc.,” Hasson said in the letter, according to court filings. “I was and am a man of action you cannot change minds protesting like that. However you can make change with a little focused violence.”
Now, under normal circumstances, I might direct you guys to my thoughts on “What happens if the Commander In Chief refuses to give up power, and some portion of the military — such as this individual — decide to go along with that?” or “remember when I said that White Nationalism was the actual terrorist threat in America?”
Fortunately, the president has recently informed us that the free press is an enemy of the people, so we can safely ignore anything the silly ole liberal media has to say, secure in the knowledge that we’re under the thumb of someone whose view closely aligned with such notable humanitarians as Stalin (widely known as the originator of that particular phrase, as well as Mao Zedong and even our pal Putin! Hitler too, weirdly enough.
Have you guys heard what time the White House intends to release a statement condemning the above suspect for acting on Trump’s expressed wishes for someone to “do something” about those elected officials in opposition to his policies (such as they are)? I could really use their strong, clear-eyed language of American unity in this trying time.
One additional article for a larger context:
U.S. Law Enforcement Failed to See the Threat of White Nationalism. Now They Don’t Know How to Stop It.
“White supremacists and other far-right extremists have killed far more people since Sept. 11, 2001, than any other category of domestic extremist. The Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism has reported that 71 percent of the extremist-related fatalities in the United States between 2008 and 2017 were committed by members of the far right or white-supremacist movements. Islamic extremists were responsible for just 26 percent. Data compiled by the University of Maryland’s Global Terrorism Database shows that the number of terror-related incidents has more than tripled in the United States since 2013, and the number of those killed has quadrupled. In 2017, there were 65 incidents totaling 95 deaths. In a recent analysis of the data by the news site Quartz, roughly 60 percent of those incidents were driven by racist, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic, antigovernment or other right-wing ideologies. Left-wing ideologies, like radical environmentalism, were responsible for 11 attacks. Muslim extremists committed just seven attacks.*”
Deeply amusing (to me, at least) — even the liberal “terror” attacks are about promoting the overall good of humanity (killing people to save the planet) — whereas the right-wing are about “killing people different from me so I stop feeling so gosh-darned challenged in my day to day life by realities that force me to reconsider my own point of view and core beliefs”.
Even left-wing looney toons have a code.
