So, uh, holy shit
After serving a stint in prison for previous violent crimes, [the Nazi] latched onto white supremacist ideology, and got several racist tattoos while incarcerated. Horry County police informed the FBI that [the Nazi] posted a suspicious post to Facebook with the caption, “I love love to act what you think,” before linking to the Temple Emanu-El Conservative Synagogue’s website last December.
Last month, [the Nazi’s] intentions became clearer when he referenced Dylann Roof in another rambling Facebook post that read, “you want to post if you ain’t got the heart to fight for Yahweh like dylann roof did you need to shut the f***** up.” Then, on January 12, an FBI agent masquerading as a white supremacist agreed to meet with [the Nazi] to sell him a gun, after noticing [the Nazi] was looking to buy an “iron” (code for a firearm).
While meeting with the undercover agent at a motel in Myrtle Beach, [the Nazi] confided to the agent that he wanted to “do something on a fuckin’ big scale and write on the fuckin’ building or whatever, ‘In the spirit of Dylann Roof.‘” He later agreed to buy a .40 caliber Glock pistol from the agent, along with hollow-point ammunition. He was arrested that same day.
