The three stooges, Curtis Allen and Gavin Wright, both 49 of Liberal, Kansas along with Patrick E. Stein, 47, of Wright, Kansas, were charged in federal court on one count of conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction.
The unsealed criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas revealed that the FBI has been investigating the southwestern Kansas militia group since February.
The affidavit stated: "This is a militia group whose members support and espouse sovereign citizen, anti-Muslim, and anti-immigrant extremist beliefs," and who "have been regularly meeting and planning to carry out a violent attack against Muslims in their community and have taken steps in furtherance of accomplishing this, including identifying a target location."
Things are really bad when Americans become the terrorists against non-combatant civilians.
The FBI learned of the plot from a "reliable, paid" confidential informant belonging to the Crusaders militia. He covertly recorded meetings and the group was also monitored through social media and other sources.
The three conspired "to carry out a domestic terrorist attack by using an improvised explosive device (IED) to destroy an apartment complex in Garden City, Kansas, which contains a mosque and is home to many Muslims," the complaint read.
The Crusaders militia referred to Muslims as "cockroaches."
"They have routinely expressed a hatred for Muslims, individuals of Somali descent, and immigrants. They chose the target location based on their hatred of these groups, their perception that these groups represent a threat to American society, a desire to inspire other militia groups, and a desire to 'wake people up.'"
The affidavit goes on to say that Stein conducted surveillance of a mall visited by Somalis and a mosque within the apartment complex as well as vehicles they believed belonged to Muslims.
On one surveillance expedition, Stein was being driven by the informant and at "various times yelled at Somali women dressed in traditional garb, calling them 'f**king raghead b****es.'"
The criminal complaint states that in May, Stein said "he wanted to get a .22 go over to Garden City, Kansas, start kicking in the doors of the Somali apartments, and kill them one by one. He wanted to use a .22 because it was quieter and he also mentioned he wanted to buy or make a silencer."
I could go on, but the idea that indiscriminate haters like these guys takes away from the real problems we have with Islam in the West, and makes anyone who points out the problems with Islam sound like a "racist."
If convicted, the three can receive life in prison.
