Last Call For Our Little Domestic Terrorism Problem, Con't

Hey look, another White supremacist neo-Nazi terrorist looking to kill Jews, luckily stopped by the FBI before he could poison or blow up a synagogue possibly killing hundreds.

The FBI says it has prevented what it believes was an attempt to commit a major hate crime in Colorado. A known white supremacist named Richard Holzer arrested late Friday night in an alleged plot to blow up Temple Emanuel in Pueblo, according to newly unsealed federal court documents
“Federal law enforcement working in conjunction with the Pueblo Police Department has successfully stopped what we believe to be an imminent threat of domestic terrorism against a Colorado religious institution,” said Jason Dunn, United States Attorney for the District of Colorado. 
“According to the complaint affidavit, Mr. Holzer self-identifies as a skinhead and a white supremacist. During the investigation, FBI agents became aware of racist, anti-Semitic and threatening statements made by Mr. Holzer on social media. Mr. Holzer repeatedly expressed his hatred of Jewish people and his support of a racial holy war,” Dunn said. “(He) indicated that he wanted to do something that would let Jewish people in the Pueblo community know that they are not welcome and that — according to him, they should leave or they will die.” 
An FBI “Online Covert Employee” made contact with Holzer, 27, on Facebook. She said Holzer sent her buttons with swastikas and other items. He reportedly told her he used to be with the Ku Klux Klan. 
In the affidavit, FBI investigators said Holzer, who lives in Pueblo, used several Facebook accounts “to promote white supremacy ideology and acts of violence.”

I'm glad the FBI is finally paying attention to these bastards, but it's hard when they're Trump's most loyal base, and he keeps encouraging them to cause violence and death at his hate rallies.

Still, lives were saved this week from the trifecta of domestic terror, a skinhead, an anti-semite, and a klansman.  Why this guy was walking free until now, well, I guess he nearly blow up a temple before anyone was willing to stop him.
