MAGA White Nationalist Coast Guard Officer Arrested For Terror Plot To Kill Top Dems and Celebrities

Via The Washington Post:

A U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant and self-identified white nationalist was arrested after federal investigators uncovered a cache of weapons and ammunition in his Maryland home that authorities say he stockpiled to launch a massive domestic terror attack targeting politicians and journalists. Christopher Paul Hasson called for “focused violence” to “establish a white homeland” and dreamed of ways to “kill almost every last person on earth,” according to court records filed in U.S. District Court in Maryland.

Though court documents do not detail a specific planned date for an attack, the government said he had been amassing supplies and weapons since at least 2017, developed a spreadsheet of targets that included House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and searched the Internet using phrases such as “best place in dc to see congress people” and “are supreme court justices protected.”

Hasson’s list of potential targets included prominent Democratic congressional leaders, activists, political organizations, and MSNBC and CNN media personalities including TV host Chris Hayes; House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California; Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Virginia; Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-New York; and many others.

Hasson listed also listed as targets Richard Blumenthal as “Sen blumen jew” and Elizabeth Warren as “poca warren,” presumably a reference to President Donald Trump’s nickname for her, “Pocahontas.”

Hasson is expected to appear in federal court today, Thursday at 1 pm.
