    As Hate Crimes Soar Under Trump, White Nationalist Allegedly Had Plan to Kill 'Innocent Civilians on Scale Rarely Seen' in US

    Just as a new report was released showing the continued rise of hate groups in the United States, federal authorities say they have thwarted a plan by a white nationalist "domestic terrorist" to begin widespread, violent attacks on President Donald Trump's perceived political opponents with the aim of establishing "a white homeland."

    U.S. Coast Guard Lieutenant Christopher Paul Hasson was arrested late last week, the Washington Post reported Wednesday, after investigators accused him of stockpiling weapons to carry out his plans. Hasson had compiled a long list of targets including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), MSNBC anchor Joe Scarborough, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) as well as other politicians and journalists.

    In court documents, the U.S. government wrote, "The defendant intends to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country."

    Hasson's arrest was reported a day after the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) unveiled research showing that for the fourth year in a row, the number of hate groups operating in the U.S. has grown. The group pointed to Trump's racist rhetoric and policies as well as his history of openly applauding violence against the press and his critics, as a key reason behind the growing prevalence of organized hate.

    "The number of hate groups operating across America rose to a record high—1,020—in 2018 as President Trump continued to fan the flames of white resentment over immigration and the country's changing demographics," the SPLC reported.


    Based on recent internet searches federal investigators uncovered, Hasson appeared to be planning an attack against Trump's detractors. In January he searched for the phrase, "civil war if trump impeached" and "what if trump illegally impeached."

    "This president is not simply a polarizing figure but a radicalizing one," Heidi Beirich, director of the SPLC's Intelligence Project, said of the group's findings. "Rather than trying to tamp down hate, as presidents of both parties have done, President Trump elevates it—with both his rhetoric and his policies. In doing so, he's given people across America the go-ahead to act on their worst instincts."

    In January investigators found Hasson had also conducted internet searches for a number of phrases indicating he planned to get access to his targets, including "best place in dc to see congress people” and “where in dc to congress live." [sic]


    Around the time of Hasson's arrest, the Washington Free Beacon published an article detailing Ocasio-Cortez's home in Washington, D.C. The congresswoman responded to reports of Hasson's apparent plans to target her and others by calling on media outlets to end their "reckless" reporting of personal details as well as amplifying of "unvetted conspiracy theories" that run rampant among right-wing hate groups.

    "This isn't a game," declared Ocasio-Cortez.

    Journalists are sharing stories about where I live the same day it’s shared that myself + others were targeted by a mass shooter.

    All this paired w/ amplifying unvetted conspiracy theories. It’s reckless, irresponsible & puts people directly in danger.

    This isn’t a game. https://t.co/gcJWcKinxI

    — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) February 21, 2019
    "Trump has given voice to the rage and paranoia of white supremacists, and now there is a very real danger that as extremists lose the hope they saw in his presidency, some will lash out against the people he has demonized and blamed for America’s problems," Beirich said.

    "Hate has frayed the social fabric of our country," said SPLC president Richard Cohen in a statement.

    Ending the growth of hate organizations "will take leadership—political leadership—that inspires our country to live up to its highest values," he added.

    Nice links. Talk about "fake news"

    Link 1 - 3. LifeSiteNews.com’s writers and its founders, have come to understand that respect for life and family are endangered by an international conflict. That conflict is between radically opposed views of the worth and dignity of every human life and of family life and community. It has been caused by secularists attempting to eliminate Christian morality and natural law principles which are seen as the primary obstacles to implementing their new world order.

    Link 2 - Marc Thiessen writes a twice-weekly column for The Post on foreign and domestic policy. He is a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and the former chief speechwriter for President George W. Bush.

    Link 3 - The Reason Foundation, a self-described "libertarian" think tank, is a right-wing 501(c)3 nonprofit and "associate" member of the State Policy Network (SPN). Reason Foundation's projects include NewEnvironmentalism.org and Privatization.org, as well as Reason Magazine. It is part of the Atlas Economic Research Foundation network.

    The Reason Foundation is funded, in part, by what are known as the Koch Family Foundations and David Koch serves as a Reason trustee.


    Yeah, those sources have about as much in common with credible journalism as Sam Hagar does with credible songwriting.

    I was looking for the word terrorist in the article because usually white people can't be called that - it's like the word immigrant.

    So I guess things are moving forward although they still had to put the "" around it so still some way to go on a website which is ranked as These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward liberal causes on the the mediabias factcheck site which admittedly itself is perhaps not the most reliable.

    Haha!! The propaganda in this country has gotten to ridiculous levels. Obama was Pol Pot and now Donald Trump is Adolf Hitler. Oh the evil Trump and his fat buddy Kim Jong Un will be scheming in Vietnam soon.
