Indiana man threatened to shoot ‘alt-right guys’ to gain sympathy for white supremacists after Charlottesville

Published

An Avon, Indiana man has been arrested after threatening to shoot “alt-right guys,” claiming it would be done to garner sympathy for white supremacists following the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally where an alleged neo-Nazi killed a woman with his car last year.

The Indianapolis Star reported Friday that prosecutors have charged 32-year-old Eric Radulovic with transmitting a threat after making a post on the 4chan citing the need to undertake a “false flag” attack intended to sway public perception in favor of white supremacists after James Fields Jr. killed Heather Heyer at the rally last August.

“I’m going to bring a Remington 700 and start shooting Alt-right guys. We need sympathy after that landwhale got all the liberals teary eyed,” Radulovic wrote in reference to Heyer, whose weight became a punchline to Internet fascists. “Someone is going to have to make it look like the left is becoming more violent and radicalized.”

“It’s a false flag for sure,” his post on the “Politically Incorrect” board continued, “but I’ll be aiming for the more tanned/dark haired muddied jeans in the crowd so real whites won’t have to worry.”

A press release by the U.S. Attorneys office of Massachusetts claims Radulovic was “upset” about Heyer’s death, inspiring him to intentionally threaten attendees at a “free speech” rally in Boston held the week after the Charlottesville rally. Neither the Indy Star‘s report nor the Massachusetts prosecutors’ statement provide further evidence for the claim that Radulovic was “posing” as a white supremacist.

Chuck Todd burns down GOP’s Ron Johnson’s Ukraine excuses: ‘You seem to blame this on everybody but the president’

Published

on

A clearly exasperated Chuck Todd was forced to talk over a loud and filibustering Sen Ron Johnson (R-WI) on Sunday morning for once again pushing Ukraine conspiracies and arguing over whether Donald Trump wanted the president of Ukraine to attack former Vice President Joe Biden on his behalf.

Having let Johnson throw out several scenarios and try and spread the blame around, Todd, finally cut in to say, "You seem to blame this on everybody but the president. It was the president’s actions."

"You’re blaming everybody else for the reason we’re in this situation, other than the president," Todd continued. "Isn’t the president’s own behavior, which raised all of these yellow and red flags, isn’t is that why we’re here?”
