What the phuck is an ‘ edgelord’.
Guy sounds like a Domestic Terrorist in the making.
Feds Feared Alleged ‘Neo-Nazi’ Benjamin Bogard Could Be Next Mass Shooter
His lawyer says he’s just an attention-seeking ‘edgelord,’ but the FBI worried he might be planning violence.

An alleged member of the neo-Nazi group Atomwaffen Division who made a video about hunting for minorities was taken into custody on child-pornography charges after federal agents became worried he was “mobilizing to violence.”
Benjamin Bogard wears a skull mask and holds a shotgun in front of a white van in the video reviewed by The Daily Beast. He advocates going across the country looking for minorities, Mexicans, women—“anything that is shit,” he says.
“Pull out your shotgun, get to the side of the road, pump that shit open, point it at them and pull that trigger,” he says in the video, which ends with a Nazi salute.
His lawyer claims it’s all a misunderstanding—that he was just being an “edgelord,” someone who revels in shock value. But authorities have said they feared Bogard was ready to act on his threats.
Well, that seems clear about his intent. More than clear. Glad someone snatched this little Nazi off the street. If they can keep him inside on child pornography charges- good. We don’t need another Mother Emanuel situation. ..and, afterwards, ‘ nobody saw the signs’. There were signs THEN, just like there are signs NOW with this guy. And, guess what…he’s NOT a ‘lone wolf’, so, I hope that attention has been paid to the folks in his group. They are fomenting their plans of hatred – TOGETHER.
Once again, Janet Napolitano is owed AN APOLOGY. She was absolutely correct about the danger to this country by right-wing racist groups. They are, and have always been, DOMESTIC TERRORISTS, and should be treated as such.
•Last year every terrorist that killed an American was a Far Right Nazi terrorist
•Last month 54 white supremacists & Nazis were arrested in Arkansas
•Last 24hrs dozens of high school kids in 2 states praised Nazism & genocide
Congress & WH: ZERO resolutions to stop any of it
