Racist Trump Supporter Arrested For Threats Against Obama Had Pipe Bombs, Weapons

A racist, fed-hating Trump supporter was arrested by the FBI and charged in connection with threats he made on social media threatening President Obama. At the time of his arrest, John Martin Roos had several pipe bombs, an assault-style weapon, and a stockpile of various other weapons.

Via Huffington Post:

John Martin Roos, a 61-year-old from Oregon, has been charged with communication of a threat in interstate commerce, and additional charges are likely forthcoming. Roos first came onto the federal government’s radar after a “concerned citizen” brought Roos’ Facebook and Twitter postings to the FBI’s attention in February, according to an affidavit from Special Agent Jeffrey Gray. (Excerpts, below, from Roos’ postings contain explicit language.)

In one Jan. 31 Facebook post cited by the FBI, Roos referred to agents as “pussies” and wrote he would “snipe them with hunting rifles everywhere.” (Despite his threats to kill members of law enforcement, he also complained on Facebook earlier this month about the “liberal media ... slamming police.”) In a post in November that was also cited by the FBI, Roos spoke out against accepting refugees and threatened to kill Obama.

“Obama you goat fffing fudgepacker, the refugees are men of fighting age. Black lives matter! Sure we need someone to pick cotton and wash cars. Paris, burn diseased muslim neighborhoods to the ground and start over with human beings. Obama you are on a hit list,” he wrote in a post that appears to have been removed.

Here are a few of the tweets he posted:

If Trump wins the nomination, expect to see much more of this type of activity, because he doesn't just encourage this behavior, he empowers it.

This man, along with his Bundy friends, truly wants to start a Civil War and restore white supremacy as the law of the land.
