In Ohio, a racist 20-year-old man was arrested over the weekend for threatening to attack a Jewish community center, in a post on Instagram.
The image in this blog post is a screengrab of that Instagram post, which bizarrely remains publicly visible and hasn't been removed from view.
The FBI's Violent Crimes Task Force raided Reardon’s house on Friday, and seized multiple semi-automatic weapons, dozens of rounds of ammunition, gas mask, and bulletproof armor, local news WYTV reported.
Tasneem Nashrulla reports for Buzzfeed News:
James Patrick Reardon, 20, was held at the Mahoning County Jail on charges of telecommunications harassment and aggravated menacing, according to jail records. His bond was set at $250,000 and he is set to appear in court on Monday.
New Middletown Police began investigating Reardon after he posted a video on Instagram on July 11 that showed a man shooting a semi-automatic rifle, accompanied by sirens and screams, WYTV reported.
(...) As of Sunday, the post on the Instagram account that appeared to belong to Reardon remained public. The account’s bio section describes him as, “Just a local IRA man trying to live his life,” and contains posts filled with anti-Semitic slurs, derogatory comments against minorities, and guns.

Authorities also recovered anti-Semitic and white nationalist propaganda from his house.
Reardon participated in the 2017 Charlottesville Nazi rally, of which President Trump said “there are very fine people” on the Nazi side of America.
