A man suspected of plotting to blow up a Missouri hospital and was killed in a shootout with FBI agents was apparently frustrated with local government action to stop the spread of coronavirus, the FBI said Wednesday.

Timothy Wilson, 36, died Tuesday in Belton, Missouri, a suburb of Kansas City, after members of the FBI’s joint terrorism task force attempted to arrest him. The FBI says Wilson was the subject of a “months-long domestic terrorism investigation."

I have a feeling that due to the continued focus on Covid-19 this little piece of news slipped under the radar. While ISIS has instructed their agents to hold off on committing any attacks it seems like the far Right are not letting this crisis go to waste.

First we had white supremacists being told they should spread to virus to Jews and police if they contract it. Now we have this guy trying to blow up a hospital when the healthcare system is being overwhelmed.

While the media is primarily portraying Wilson as an anti-government loner akin to someone like McVeigh, he was actually active in a number of neo-Nazi groups.

So ATS, remind me once again how far Right extremism isn't an issue in the US.

I realize its from the article, but talk about a misleading title:

"man killed in Missouri".

When it should actually read:

"FBI kills man in Missouri".


FBI officials describe Wilson as a potentially violent extremist...

Ok, what made him an extremist?


...known to express... ...antigovernment sentiment.

Criticizing government now makes you an extremist???

Isnt that the point of the First Amendment?

To be able to criticize government without fear of retaliation?


The amount of people who were "antigovernment" under Obama? Forget about it.

The other half hates Trump.

Hey America, youre all extremists!



ETA:

OP, you'll have to forgive those who are skeptical about ANYTHING that the FBI says.


COINTELPRO


COINTELPRO (syllabic abbreviation derived from COunter INTELligence PROgram) (1956–1971) was a series of covert and, at times, illegal[1][2] projects conducted by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and disrupting American political organizations.[3][4]

In another instance in San Diego, the FBI financed, armed, and controlled an extreme right-wing group of former members of the Minutemen anti-communist para-military organization, transforming it into a group called the Secret Army Organization that targeted groups, activists, and leaders involved in the Anti-War Movement, using both intimidation and violent acts.[9][10][11]

Government agents 'directly involved' in most high-profile US terror plots.

New information: FBI was with the terrorists at the Garland attack.

FBI's entrapment scheme exposed by suspect, so they grab him the very next day.


The "Newburgh Four".


Judge Colleen McMahon – who put the Newburgh Four behind bars – slammed the FBI.

"Only the government could have made a terrorist out of Mr Cromitie, a man whose buffoonery is positively Shakespearean in its scope," she said in court.

She added: "I believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that there would have been no crime here except the government instigated it, planned it and brought it to fruition."



Cant forget the the case of Emad Salem and the first WTC bombing.

The FBI was to build a fake bomb and give it to their informant.

But after the bomb turned out to be real, Emad began to record all of his conversations with the FBI (hundreds of hours in total), realizing that they had been set up.

Emad accuses the FBI agent of replacing the fake bomb with a real one only to then blame him.

He also says that the plan was fine until a FBI Supervisor intervened and provided a real bomb:


Mr. Salem talks of the plan to substitute harmless powder for explosives during another conversation with agent Floyd. In that conversation, he recalls a previous discussion with Mr. Anticev.

Salem: “…we was start already building the bomb which is went off in the World Trade Center. It was built by supervising supervision from the Bureau and the DA and we was all informed about it and we know that the bomb start to be built. By who? By your confidential informant. What a wonderful great case!”

"Do you deny," Mr. Salem says he told the other agent, "your supervisor is the main reason of bombing the World Trade Center?" Mr. Salem said Mr. Anticev did not deny it. "We was handling the case perfectly well until the supervisor came and messed it up, upside down."

As I said, he was a member of a number of neo-Nazi organizations. But the fact that he tried to blow up a hospital based on ideological beliefs should be enough to label him an extremist.

It should also be noted that at this time it is not known if the fatal shot came from the FBI or was self-inflicted.

ETA: Also, are you actually trying to defend someone that had plans to blow up a hospital?

He’s defending belief and free speech. As should everyone; until action is taken, then and only then can you punish them...

It may not be “fair” but it is how our rights and freedoms are kept.....
for the record; I don’t condone blowing up anything, much less a hospital and I think white supremacy is a major problem.... not expressing free thought.

Haha, rejoice! The magic box says a terrorist was killed. But the real message was to trick your brain subconsciously to associate anyone questioning lock down methods with domestic terrorism. Next time you get angry about lockdowns, your mind will automatically drift to this incident and decide you do not want to risk being associated with terrorism.

Learn how they target your brain for programming or we will fall for it every time.

If they do not saturate the airwaves with this incident, then the incident is not as described.

Just like they. Swept. The car bomb in Allentown Pennsylvania from 2018 under the rug. A Media focused on amplifying terrorist threats ignores the first car bomb fatality in decades in the USA?? Funny how they pick and choose.

So the FBI should've let him blow up a hospital before confronting him?

I'll do you one better: Extremism in all forms and from both ends of the political spectrum are a problem. Missouri guy tries to blow up hospital or guy who went shooting up conservative politicians golf game- attempted murder is despicable no matter the political leanings of the perpetrator. Attacking someone for their race or attacking someone for their political beliefs (neo-Nazis OR ANTIFA) both just as heinous.

Can we stop doing this left v. right crap and recognize that extremist people from both sides need their backsides kicked?

I don't disagree. But one side is responsible for way more attacks than the other. Anytime this fact gets brought up on ATS it is met with deflection and cognitive dissonance.

The FBI strikes again! I wonder how many informants make up the neo nazi organisations. A good percentage of these groups are informants, FBI agents, ATF, etc. FBI likes to find people and manipulate them to commit crimes and then arrest them.
Then, they claim that they stopped a terrorist attack.

Sometimes they let their puppets commit their crimes, like the first WTC bombing

Do you know that for a fact or do your political leanings tend to make you focus on one side more than the other?
As a Libertarian I don't have a dog in this "left v. right" stuff and usually see both sides of the extreme dishing it out pretty evenly these days, although I do see a trend with the MSM focusing on one side more than the other.

Because, like I said in my OP and multiple times in this thread, he was a member of multiple neo-Nazi organizations.

It's based off pretty much every study done on the subject. This includes studies done by the current administration and Conservative think tanks like the Cato Institute.
