Estranged Son of Boston Police Captain Arrested On Suspicion of Jihadi Terrorism

It's a Brian Ross piece so I have to ask: Any Tea Party connections?

Alexander Ciccolo, 23, of Adams, Mass., was taken into custody on gun charges after buying two pistols and two rifles from an undercover FBI confidential informant, federal officials said. In a search of his apartment, officials reported they found it loaded with possible bomb-making equipment including a pressure cooker, a variety of chemicals, an alarm clock, along with “attack planning papers” and "jihad" paperwork. FBI agents said he used the name Abu Ali al-Amriki and neighbors said he was a recent convert to Islam.

...

An FBI affidavit said Ciccolo initially planned to travel to "another state" and used a pressure cooker bomb "to conduct terrorist attacks on civilians, members of the U.S. military and law enforcement personnel." The FBI said the attack location was later changed to a town with a state university and would be concentrated on "college dorms and cafeteria, to include executions of students, which would be broadcast live via the internet."

I wonder if he was involved in the Pam Geller plot. I am guessing he was.

The whole article is worth reading; I can only excerpt a bit. But his nastiness is astounding.

At the start of the thread, I asked, rhetorically, if he had any Tea Party connections. You know the media loves claiming that, even when it's demonstrably false.

The thing is, though, that he had provable left-wing political connections. The below picture runs with the article, but the article does not otherwise note his left-wing politics.

That's our little jihadist on a "peace walk."

I ask rhetorically, knowing the media will refuse to answer: Why are Dylann Roof's political motives relevant, but this white terrorist's left-wing pathway to jihadism is not?
