A U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant and self-identified white nationalist was arrested after federal investigators uncovered a cache of weapons and ammunition in his Maryland home that authorities say he stockpiled to launch a widespread domestic terrorist attack targeting politicians and journalists.

Christopher Paul Hasson called for “focused violence” to “establish a white homeland” and said, “I am dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on the earth,” according to court records filed in U.S. District Court in Maryland. 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 defendant intends to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country,” the government said in court documents filed this week, arguing that Hasson should stay in jail awaiting trial.

Hasson, 49, of Silver Spring, is expected to appear before a judge for a detention hearing in federal court in Greenbelt at 1 p.m. Thursday.

Hasson was arrested Friday on ­charges of illegally possessing weapons and drugs, but the government said those charges are the “proverbial tip of the iceberg.” Officials with the U.S. attorney’s office in Maryland outlined Hasson’s alleged plans to spark chaos and destruction, describing in court documents a man obsessed with neo-fascist and neo-Nazi views.

Well, that is damn chilling. 

Perhaps even more chilling is that Hasson had a list of targets that was seized by the feds.

According to court documents shared by NPR, U.S. Coast Guard Lieutenant Christopher Hasson had targeted such politicians as Ocasio-Cortez, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and 2020 election Democratic candidates Cory Booker, Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren. Well-known TV hosts from CNN and MSNBC were also on the list.

Hasson’s internet history included searches such as: “Where in D.C. do Congress live?” and “Best place in D.C. to see Congress people,” according to the court documents.

And even more frightening is that Hasson is just one example of a growing trend in this country.

Propelled by a rise in extremism, the number of hate groups active in the U.S. rose to its highest level in two decades last year, according to an annual survey released Wednesday by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The most significant growth over the past two years has been in white nationalist organizations, up from 193 to 264, said Beirich, who authored the report. It marks a resurgence in the aftermath of the massive 2017 rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that focused attention on the movement.

“Much of the energy on the radical right this year was concentrated in the white supremacist milieu,” the report reads. ” After a lull that followed the violence in Charlottesville, which brought criminal charges and civil suits that temporarily dampened the radical right’s activism and organizing, newer groups gathered momentum.”

All are driven by concern about dwindling white power, as seen by Census Bureau projections that Caucasians will lose their majority by 2044, according to the report. After a sharp dropoff in the first half of the decade — Beirich said those groups had been driven underground — they revived as the 2016 election approached.

Though the U.S. no longer has an African-American president, hate groups became motivated by what they saw as too slow of progress toward their goals, such as President Donald Trump being stymied in his goal of building a wall along the Mexican border, she said. Just last week, Trump declared a national emergency in order to try to build the wall without the approval of Congress.

Of course, not all white nationalists are necessarily domestic terrorists, but that is the growing trend, and it does provide a framework which supports the kind of thinking that may result in acts of violence. 

Gee, I wonder who we can look to as the reason for the increased acceptance of these nationalist views?

    Thank God for the Southern Poverty Law Center. I just wish that Washington politicians paid attention to the SPLC findings. In this country we are our own worst enemies.

    The scary part isn’t even the guns and the bullets this guy had. The scary part is he was looking for a virus or some other way to start a plague to kill everyone. I don’t believe hes the only one thinking in this direction.

    The suit demonstrates that the Covington kids aren’t racist by referring to Native American elder Nathan Phillips as a “phony war hero.” Odd that they would blame Phillips for how the press, whom they’re decrying, chose to identify him. The suit goes on to claim that Phillips is a coward who was “too intimidated” to approach the real “troublemakers,” the Black Hebrew Israelites and instead focused on “innocent children.” This might be the first defamation suit to defame someone else while suing for defamation.
    The social media posts went viral independent of the Post’s specific coverage. Any condemnation from public figures was arguably rooted more in Sandmann wearing the damn MAGA hat. The Post didn’t photoshop it onto the kid’s noggin.
    The president was even considering inviting Sandmann to the White House for a fast-food potluck.

    “The Washington Post ignored basic journalistic standards because it wanted to advance its well-known and easily documented biased agenda against President Donald J. Trump.” Covington student suing WAPO. Go get them Nick. Fake News!
