    I’m sure it’s just a cultural thingy.

    NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — A New Jersey man has been arrested on terror charges after he allegedly sought to send money to support Hamas, as well as expressing a desire to shoot pro-Israel supporters at a march and bomb the Israeli consulate and Trump Tower.

    The man — identified as Jonathan Xie, 20, of Basking Ridge — also allegedly sent money abroad to support Hamas. The U.S. attorney’s office says Xie sent $100 in December to a person he thought was affiliated with a faction of Hamas. In an online video, he allegedly displayed a handgun and said he wanted to “shoot the pro-Israel demonstrators.”

    He also allegedly made threats against pro-Israel groups in the U.S.

    Xie is charged with attempting to provide material support to a designated terrorist organization, making false statements and transmitting a threat in interstate commerce.

    Xie appeared in federal court in Newark Wednesday. He is being held without bail. His public defender didn’t say whether he would file a motion for a bail hearing.

    Yep, probably just a cultural thing.

    Recent events such as the sending of pipe-bombs to prominent Democrats by Cesar Sayoc and the Tree of Life synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania by Robert Bowers highlight the growing trend of far right-wing extremism.

    Cesar Sayoc was charged on October 29 with mailing at least 14 pipe-bombs to prominent Democratic politicians and media figures.

    Sayoc – a hardcore Trump supporter – was a prolific social media poster, sharing sensationalized articles demonizing the left, pictures of himself at Trump rallies, racial epithets directed toward Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama, and had his van decked-out with decals supporting Trump, bashing liberal politicians, and a “CNN Sucks” sticker.

    Robert Bowers gunned down 11 Jewish worshippers on October 27. Bowers, also an avid social media user, spread anti-Semitic hate on the site, Gab, often reposting memes and statements targeting Jewish people. He held white-supremacist views and echoed Trump’s anti-immigration stance, referring to the caravan as invaders.

    There are many routes to American radicalization, but Remy Cross, Assistant Professor and Coordinator of Sociology and Criminology at Webster University, points to two main ones: a perceived loss in status by the radicalized and online communities that hear and bolster their radical views.

    “Active recruitment by groups who capitalize on grievances by teen to middle-aged white men offer them potential solutions … They seek to reframe economic or life anxieties as arising from outsiders, foreigners, immigrants, and women-and-minority-friendly policies,” he told The Globe Post.

    “In this case, we’re talking about a constellation of groups, many of which have ties to older, more established white/European supremacy groups.”

    According to Cross, these groups are hard to identify and stop because most of the recruitment happens in online spaces – like Gab – that are difficult to find or are completely hidden from standard surveillance and monitoring techniques.

    But, the influence of right-wing extremist groups extends beyond online.

    “These are groups that have made a concerted effort to infiltrate military and law enforcement over the past decade plus and have seen at least some success in these efforts,” Cross said. “This means that they often have insider information on efforts to counter them or arrest their members and that many have training and knowledge of law enforcement or military operating practices which means they know how to avoid detection in many instances.”

    Of the 65 terror attacks in the U.S. in 2017, two-thirds – 37 incidents – were carried out by far right-wing extremists, according to a Quartz analysis of data from the Global Terrorism Database. Far right-wing extremism is on the rise and costing more lives each year.

    The other moron showed up and the pipe bomb guy in Florida was not a Trump supporter. It was bullshit as you look at the facts and the piece of shit van with the shiny Trump stickers on it was bullshit. See as a retired police officer we look at all the facts and consult with our friends in all different LEO jobs and find the truth. Unlike Demtards who believe everything they read from liberal news media. Half the stuff you mentioned are bullshit blame it on the conservatives, typical libtard
