Ohio white nationalist, anti-Semite arrested for threatening to shoot up Jewish community center

Source: ABC

An Ohio man has been arrested for making threats toward a local Jewish community center in New Middletown.

James Reardon Jr., 20, has been charged with telecommunications harassment and aggravated menacing and is being held in the Mahoning County Jail on $250,000 bond with a court hearing planned for Monday morning.

On Friday, the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force raided Reardon’s house and seized a cache of weapons and ammunition, including dozens of round of ammo, multiple semi-automatic weapons, a gas mask and bulletproof armor.

"Grateful for the work of the FBI, local law enforcement and our community partners in the Youngstown Jewish community. We will continue to employ all our resources to stop the spread of white nationalism and violent extremism," the Anti-Defamation League in Cleveland tweeted.

a cowardly attack against unarmed fellow Americans is 'heroism'.

2. So this made the national news?

Saw it last night on the local news. This is where my hubby goes to swim and work out. They had to beef up the security there right after the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh as well.

Thanks, Dumbass Donnie, for encouraging these wackos.

5. But.....but......but.......

Donny just told us yesterday that Antifa are the terrorist. Not his followers, whities, that are killing and threatening to kill us all. What say you, Israeli Leader, trump supporting criminal. Will you let tRumpers into Israel? Trump is a terrorist leader, exactly as Bin Laden was. Have your peeps kill your opponents while said peeps bow at your fat feet. We have passed the cross roads, but not yet far enough to not turn around. Or we can be like a dad on a trip refusing to ask directions and drive over the Thelma and Louis cliff. If we do not hit reverse by Nov. 2020, it will be the cliff. It's the landing that will wake tRumpers up. Too late. You are dead. Mouth breathing will not help.

3. We Are At A Crossroad

We are in a precarious time and we need to recognize that. When you have a “man” in the White House siding with racists/fascist groups over the rest of us, the ones fighting this we are in a bit of a pickle.

This all isn’t normal and we need to fight back hard. I would hope that in the next democratic presidential debate candidates acknowledge that and what they would do about it rather that pick each other apart.

Trump is proud of racists, right? So stop playing innocent like it's the public's responsibility to figure it out.

Guy threw his life away at 20. What does one know at 20? I can't imagine or even try to understand the motivation.

8. At the age of 20, he has not lived long enough to

gain this much hatred. This has to be learned at home, and in whatever environment he spends time. These young people should be thinking about college, future employment and building lives for themselves. Amassing weapons and equipment like this has to be a symptom of some type of sickness. It would be interesting to meet his parents.

15. as i've said before, they all have that blank, far away look about them as if they have nothing

going on in life for them. All the more important to teach and expose kids to the ideals of diversity, tolerance, acceptance. Either that or they become deadly killers in this society where guns are rampant.

understand why these guys go after people who are just living and not hurting anyone. Oh, yeah, it is because they think it will make them heroes to other really stupid people.

16. With today's modern weapons,

a lone guy can cause as much death and destruction that in earlier times, would require a squad of men. In earlier times those men would be called Death Squads. This is what is happening in America now. In my opinion we have Right Wing Christian Death Squads roaming the countryside.

17. More from a local source and a video...

Extra security added at Jewish Community Center, Synagogues after threats
Posted: Aug 18, 2019 12:26 AM EDT
(Youngstown, Ohio)

Link: http://www.wfmj.com/story/40930435/extra-security-added-at-jewish-community-center-synagogues-after-threats

(snips)
The Youngstown Police Department was notified along with the security team at JCC, and the FBI was called to assist the department. With the cooperation of the agencies and courts, police served a search warrant at Reardon's mothers home on Eastwood Drive in New Middletown. They confiscated two AR-15's, a rifle with a bayonet, a 40 caliber anti-tank gun, and knives. There were several magazines and 223 ammunition, a gas mask, and a bulletproof vest were also taken from the home.

In addition to the weapons and ammunition that were seized, Reardon's electronic devices were also taken. They will be searched and analyzed to find out if he had been radicalized or if they reveal any plans he had posted, along with sites he has searched for information. Police also found a flask with a Confederate flag and jacket with an IRA, Irish Republican Army, patches on it.

D'Egidio added, "There were several videos that he posted on Instagram where he used a lot of derogatory remarks towards the Jewish community, and the African-American community, things of that nature."

A 2017 YouTube video and interview from the Charlottesville white supremacist rally in Virginia, shows Reardon answering a question and explaining that his parents don't agree with his views, that his mom is a union teacher, and his dad a blue-collar worker. He says that he is a white nationalist, and he wants a homeland for white people.

Quote: "find out if he had been radicalized".

What? Some officials need their heads examined!......

Young men used to participate in community and spend their money on fast cars. Now it's going into fast guns and whatever it takes to be completely brainwashed with right-wing dogma.

KY.........
