Among Hasson’s targets were cable news host and former U.S. congressman Joe Scarborough, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), whom Hasson referred to as “Sen blumen jew,” and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-M.A.), referred to as “poca Warren,” a nickname Hasson appears to have lifted from Donald Trump. CBS Minnesota reports that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-M.N.) was also on the list.
Hasson was arrested Friday.
Also found in Hasson’s apartment was “ a locked container loaded with more than 30 vials of what appeared to be human growth hormone,” as well as opioid pills, writes the Post. That particular detail is drawn from a Norwegian white supremacist and mass murderer, Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people in 2011 during a planned rampage in Norway. According to a separate article from the Post, Breivik—who used explosives and firearms in his brutal attack, prepared a 1,500 page manifesto called the “2083: A European Declaration of Independence,” which served to give instructions on how to carry out genocide based on white nationalist ideals. Among Breivik’s thoughts on planning targeted attacks: consuming steroids so he could be a “superhuman one-man-army for 2 hours.”
