Police found 15 firearms and 1,000+ rounds of ammo. He had writings describing himself as a 30+ year white nationalist and was a former Marine before joining the coastguard.

His hit list included AOC, Pelosi, Schumer, Tim Kain, Corey Booker, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, MSNBC and CNN reporters and many more

Freakin' amateur.
I was about to say... since when does that even remotely rank as excessive/newsworthy?!??

Hell, two boxes of .22 shells puts you over a thousand rounds of ammunition. Not trying to downplay the significance of this guys issues, but this “supposed” stockpile of firepower is anything but a “stockpile of firepower”.

This story fits the narrative so of course the mainstream media is going to jump on it. That's how the news works today...look for stories that promote your narrative, ignore the ones that don't (create stories if you can't find real ones). That doesn't excuse this person's alleged plan. If he's guilty, I hope they throw him in a hole for a long time.

Fox News was the one putting out the story and blasting it on Twitter and was actually a pushed story to my phone from Fox News yesterday. They were very much promoting and pushing it
