White Supremacist Was Arrested For Allegedly Planning To Blow Up A Synagogue...

"Allegedly..." Except for the bragging and threats and claims that he'd poisoned the water and the substantial steps taken towards the crime...

Authorities said Richard Holzer, who was arrested Friday, plotted to blow up Temple Emanuel Synagogue with Molotov cocktails or pipe bombs, and told undercover FBI agents that he had previously paid a cleaner at the temple to put arsenic in the water to poison the congregation.

..."Mr. Holzer repeatedly expressed his hatred of Jewish people and his support of a racial holy war,” Jason Dunn, Colorado's US attorney, said. "Mr. Holzer indicated he wanted to do something that would let Jewish people in the Pueblo community know that they are not welcome and that, according to him, they should leave or they will die.”

...The court documents in the Holzer case reveal that he maintained several Facebook accounts advocating for white supremacy and racially motivated violence.

"I wish the Holocaust really did happen… they need to die," he told another Facebook user on Sept. 9, showing a confusing mix of Holocaust denialism and Nazi ideology.

On July 5, he told one user he was "going to kill some spics," a racial slur against Latinos. A week later, he sent other photos of himself holding a handgun and a rifle, dressed in clothing with white supremacy symbols, with the comment "getting ready to cap people."

In September, an FBI agent posed as a female white supremacist on Facebook interested in being friends with Holzer. He then responded with photos of himself dressed in "clothing with symbols and phrases associated with white supremacy," and described himself as a former member of the Ku Klux Klan and a skinhead, according to court documents.

Holzer also claimed to have killed "pedophiles" and sent a video of himself urinating on what appeared to be a Jewish center.

Holzer told the undercover FBI agent on Facebook that he had paid a cook $70 to "hex and poison a local synagogue" by putting arsenic in the water pipes on Oct. 31, 2018, and that he planned to do it again on October 31, 2019.

He also said he was getting "getting ready for RAHOWA" (which means religious war) and sent video of Nazi propaganda and knives, as well as of him visiting Temple Emanuel Synagogue "to scope it out."

The bombing of Temple Emanuel would be "phase two" of Holzer's plan, with a "phase three" to take place outside of Pueblo and be "bigger and better," Holzer said, according to court documents.

On Nov. 1, the night of the planned attack, Holzer wore a Nazi armband and carried a copy of Mein Kampf as he met up with the agents at a motel. The attack was planned for around 2 a.m.

“This is a move for our race," he told the undercover agents. "One of these days, we're probably gonna do something where one of us, couple of us even, probably won’t come back."

Holzer was arrested and taken to a police station, where he told officers he had not planned to hurt anyone, but would have gone ahead with the attack if people were inside the synagogue because they would have been Jewish.

...Holzer's arrest is the 13th incident since last year's massacre at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue in which a white supremacist allegedly plotted an attack on or made threats against the Jewish community, according to an October ADL report.

There are good people on both sides.

Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
