The New York Daily News is reporting the FBI has issued an alert by an armed man with strong anti-Islam views headed to New York.
In a recent video on his Facebook page that has since been deleted, Jon Ritzheimer said “F–k you Muslims. We’re gonna stop at virtually every mosque along the way, flip them off and tell them to get f—–.”
He then proceeds to cock his handgun.
A Muslim group based near Albany notified the FBI about his video. Agents questioned Ritzheimer in Pennsylvania, but he has since cut off communications.
“The FBI vigorously investigates threats and allegations of hate crimes,” she said. “After recently becoming aware of a video which could have been perceived as threatening against the Muslim community in Hancock, N.Y., the FBI immediately took steps to notify our federal, state and local partners.”
Rizheimer has a long history of anti-Islam activities. You can read about that in the New York Daily News.
