Neo-Nazi who planned to blow up synagogue sentenced to 19 years

Source: MSN

A Colorado man who prosecutors say is a self-identified neo-Nazi was sentenced to more than 19 years for a plan to blow up one of the state's oldest synagogues, officials said.

Richard Holzer, 28, was sentenced to 235 months, or around 19 1/2 years, in prison and 15 years of supervised release for the plan to target Temple Emanuel Synagogue in Pueblo, said the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Colorado.

Holzer in October pleaded guilty to a federal hate crime and an explosives count. While he planned to blow up the synagogue, which was built in 1900, he was unknowingly in contact with the FBI.

Holzer confessed after his arrest and said that while he didn't plan to kill anyone, he still would have gone ahead with the attack even if people had been inside, according to court documents.

He didn't plan to kill anyone, but he still would have gone ahead with the attack even if people had been inside.

8. Reminds me of the euphemism "collateral damage"

used so glibly by the US military. “We didn’t mean to kill all those women and children; they just happened to be where we dropped our bombs...”.

2. I Hate These Fucking Right Wingers

OUR SIDE NEVER DOES THIS SHIT!

You don't hear about a Liberal "Antifa" coming up with a plan to bomb a Church full of worshipers. But repubs just accept these people, because after all, it's their Base.

5. Quite the sentence, with a guilty plea

May the courts be consistent with the insurrectionists.

And still no word on the DNC-RNC midnight bomb placer.

This part of the operation would have created the illusion of insurrection aimed at both parties. Sort of parallel to the targeting of Mike Pence.

I wonder - here go my suspicions again - if this wasn't conceived at the highest level of the operation? Kingpins level, iow?

6. Related: White supremacist sentenced to nearly 20 years in plot to bomb Colorado synagogue

The judge rejected arguments by defense lawyers that Holzer has renounced his racist views, noting that since his arrest he has reached out to other white supremacists and continued to invoke Nazi imagery.

“The notion that he’s turned some corner is fantasy,” Moore said.
