White guy gets fired up about Muslims. White guy starts making bombs in his house to do harm to them. White guy loves Donald Trump and would follow him to the "end of the world."

But no one dares to call it terrorism. What is wrong with this picture?

Police received a tip from a caller on December 17th who said a man was making the devices and threatening to harm Muslims.

Police removed a device from the home on the 5100 block of Mcbryde Avenue, and the Walnut Creek bomb squad detonated a device before neighbors were allowed to return to their homes.

...

Celli appeared to be a supporter of Presidential candidate Donald Trump. A post on his Facebook page said he would follow Trump “to the end of the world.”

Update: In this article with a few more details, they do actually use the words "domestic terrorism." Kudos. [h/t C&Ler NotReveen]
