A self-proclaimed white nationalist and U.S. Coast Guard officer was arrested after federal investigators uncovered a stockpile of weapons and ammunition as part of a plot to launch a massive terror attack against Democrats and journalists.
The officer, identified as Christopher Paul Hasson, called for “focused violence” to “establish a white homeland,” the Washington Post reports. He dreamed of ways to “kill almost every last person on earth.”
“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,” the newspaper reports.
Christopher Paul Hasson also named Beto O’Rourke, Reps. Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on his list. He also targeted Sens. Richard Blumenthal, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Tim Kaine on the same list. Journalists named include Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon, Ari Melber and Chris Hayes.
