US Coast Guard terrorist no terrorist: white


This 21 February 2019 video about the USA by the British conservative Daily Mail says about itself:

Christopher Paul Hasson dreamed of killing ‘every last person’

A U.S. Coast Guard Lieutenant was arrested after investigators claimed he was planning a domestic terror attack and had a ‘hit-list’ that included prominent Democrats and media figures.

Christopher Paul Hasson is due in court on Thursday in Maryland after he was arrested on gun and drug charges last week. Prosecutors said that Hasson, a 49-year-old who lives in a basement apartment in Maryland, espoused extremist views for years.

Court papers detail a June 2017 draft email in which Hasson described an ‘interesting idea’ that included ‘biological attacks followed by attack on food supply.’

Federal agents found 15 firearms and over 1,000 rounds of ammunition when Hasson was arrested. Prosecutors allege that he had compiled a list of prominent congressional Democrats, activists, and media commentators.

White Nationalist Coast Guard Officer Won’t Face Terrorism Charges

April 19, 2019

By Josh Nathan-Kazis

The Coast Guard officer who federal prosecutors accuse of amassing a stockpile of weapons and compiling a hit list of Democrats and media figures, and who prosecutors say is a white nationalist, is asking to be released from prison in advance of his trial because he has been charged with no terrorism-related crimes.

The officer, Christopher Hasson, is a white nationalist who revered the Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik, prosecutors say. But so far, they have only charged him with firearms and drug offenses.

In a court filing this week, Hasson’s attorney said that prosecutors revealed in a status conference that they intend to file no further chargers, the Associated Press reported.

“No other crimes have been charged,” the attorney wrote, according to the A.P. “Moreover, during a recent status call, government counsel advised the Court and defense counsel that it does not expect to file a superseding indictment in this matter.”

Hasson’s arrest on February 15 came amidst growing concern over the rise of white supremacist violence. Court filings called Hasson a “domestic terrorist,” and described his white nationalist views.

If Christopher Paul Hasson’s name would not have been Christopher Paul Hasson, but Mohamed Abdallah Hassan, and/or if he would not have been white, then I doubt whether the prosecutor would have stopped short of charging him with terrorism.

Two separate police departments in Virginia announced last week that they had each fired an officer accused of links to white supremacist groups, CNN reported. In both cases, the officer had been investigated after an activist group called Antifa Seven Hills published blog posts outlining their alleged links to white supremacist organizations. The Virginia Division of Capitol Police, which protects the Virginia state capitol, fired one of the officers, Robert Stamm, after placing him on leave in February, CNN reported. Antifa Seven Hills had published a blog post linking Stamm to Asatru Folk Assembly, which the ADL calls an “extremist group”: here.
