Coast Guard Terrorist plotted to kill Democrats, Journalists, and "leftists in general"

Coast Guard Officer Plotted to Kill Democrats and Journalists, Prosecutors Say
By Dave Philipps
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/20/u...ast-guard.html

A Coast Guard lieutenant and self-described white nationalist who was arrested in Maryland last week was plotting to kill a long list of prominent journalists and Democratic politicians, as well as professors, judges and what he called “leftists in general,” federal prosecutors said in a court filing on Tuesday.

Lt. Christopher Paul Hasson, 49, was arrested Friday on gun and drug charges, but prosecutors said in the filing that the charges were just the “proverbial tip of the iceberg.”

The filing argued that Lieutenant Hasson should be held until he is tried, describing him as a “domestic terrorist” who intended “to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country.”

In the last month, prosecutors said, the lieutenant used his work computer to draw up a list of prominent figures he called “traitors” and wanted to kill, including many well-known anchors and hosts on the CNN and MSNBC news networks and a number of Democratic elected officials. The list included, among others, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Maxine Waters, Senator Richard Blumenthal, whom he referred to as “Sen blumen jew,” and many of the senators running for president in 2020.

The authorities said Lieutenant Hasson had studied the 1,500-page manifesto that the mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik, a far-right Norwegian extremist who killed 77 people in 2011, wrote in the hope of inspiring other killers.
Figured this was worth of its own thread. This is incredibly fucked up, and the only good thing is that he was caught before he could take any action against people.

But, y'know, antifa is the real problem. /s

Will the government take away his citizenship like the woman who joined ISIS for a time?

Will he be treated as a terrorist or a "lone nut"?

Hmm...

My concern is how many people with Nazi sympathies are floating around our military these days. Probably more than we fear.

If just one of these kinds of plots is ever successful, it’s going to make all the other high-casualty shootings look like a walk in the park.

I hope you guys started a thread when the 'Bernie' supporter start shooting up the House Republicans (Including Republican House Leader Steve Scalise) on the Baseball Field a few years ago, and discussed how crazy he was being politically motivated. I could be wrong as someone can link and old thread regarding this 'domestic terrorist' incident, but it seems like you guys only post threads about crazy people on the right.

Your narrative is bullshit. Thanks for playing.
Funny how quick you are to remind us it was a Bernie supporter, when the OP of this thread makes no mention of any political figure the guy supported. Maybe consider that a bit, yeah.
But please, do tell us about the other insane terrorist plots orchestrated by "crazies" on the left that are deserving of attention. It's almost like there's a fucking pattern, I don't know.

He didn't even bother looking, he just had to throw in a whataboutism. It's an automatic reflex for many.

What the hell would this have to do with antifa. Not even on the same level.

What else are you going to toss into your IED of a commentary. The guy was a terrorist. He needs to be dealt with accordingly. Just like anyone who plots to kill people in the US who support a politician.

I make a point of not engaging people who acknowledge they are only on a site to troll. Using the phrase "you guys only..." is good sign that's taking place.

I posted this news yesterday on the Trump thread because I feel it's a direct result of his rhetoric, especially since earlier in the day, Trump said that the New York Times is the enemy of the people. It can't be understated how all those people that were going to be targeted by this domestic terrorist to be are the same people who Trump has publicly denounced on Twitter and on his rallies.

You missed the part where I said, 'I could be wrong as someone can link and old thread.....' And you did.
