White supremacist arrested for plotting to attack synagogue or LGBTQ bar

This is only going to get worse until Patient Zero Donald J. Trump is sent into exile — permanently.

BuzzFeed News:

A Las Vegas man who once claimed he was protecting his neighborhood while patrolling on foot with an assault rifle has been arrested and charged with plotting to carry out an attack on a synagogue or LGBTQ bar in the city.

Conor Climo, 23, allegedly sent encrypted messages to white supremacists this year discussing a possible attack using Molotov cocktails and other improvised explosives, federal officials said Friday.

Climo told the FBI he had also been looking at creating an eight-man “sniper platoon” to conduct a shooting attack against Jews, court documents said, a plan he said he had been considering for two years. The 23-year-old also claimed he was trying to recruit a homeless person to conduct surveillance on a possible target, according to the complaint.

Climo now faces federal charges, including for possession of an unregistered firearm. The FBI also reportedly found bomb-making materials in his bedroom. And he had allegedly communicated with Atomwaffen Division, a violent white supremacist organization that has encouraged attacks on LGBTQ people, racial minorities, and the federal government.

And, of course, he once unilaterally decided to patrol his neighborhood while carrying an assault rifle, because that’s totally normal:

But, you know, white supremacy is just a hoax and conspiracy theory, right?
