"Maryland Man" Accused of Stealing a U-Haul In Order to Drive It Through Crowds at National Harbor (Just Outside of DC)

White Supremacy Watch.

This plan is of course borrowed from ISIS -- renting (or stealing) a large heavy vehicle and then just plowing through civilians has been a staple of ISIS attacks in Europe.

And in New York City, of course.

A Maryland man inspired by the Islamic State terror network allegedly planned to ram a truck into "disbelievers" at a popular tourist spot and keep "driving and driving and driving" nonstop, U.S. officials said Monday.

...

Henry has had "hatred" toward those who don't practice Islam for two years, officials said Monday, adding that he was allegedly inspired from videos of foreign terrorists. He allegedly planned to conduct a similar attack to the truck attack in Nice, France in 2016. Authorities say Henry admitted that he wanted to create "panic and chaos"

"After stealing the van, Henry drove around, arriving at Dulles International Airport in Virginia at approximately 5:00 a.m. on Wednesday, March 27, 2019," officials said. "The government’s motion for detention alleges that Henry exited his U-Haul and entered the terminal, trying to find a way through security, allegedly to harm 'disbelievers' in a way designed for maximum publicity. After more than two hours of failing to breach Dulles’s security perimeter, Henry allegedly returned to the U-Haul."

Strangely, we're not getting the sort of coverage we got after Christchurch, with leftwing/jihad-friendly media types searching to figure out what kind of political messaging, from which set of political actors, could have contributed to this terrorists' mindset.
