一名与新纳粹有联系的前海军陆战队策划了对犹太目标的袭击, 检察官说

一名前美国海军陆战队员计划袭击纽约犹太教堂并参与 “广泛的凶杀和性侵犯” 针对少数群体, 联邦检察官在 CNN 获得的法庭文件中辩称.

马修·贝朗格, a former Marine who was discharged from the service in May 2021 due to allegeddissident/extremist activity,” according to the government’s filing, was arrested last month by FBI agents on weapons charges as part of an investigation that began while he was stationed in Hawaii.
A federal grand jury in Hawaii indicted Belanger on June 16, 2022, for his alleged role in unlawfully obtaining a weapon, which includes charges of conspiracy to make a false statement to a federal firearm licensee; making a false material statement during the purchase of a firearm; and making a false statement of required information to a federal firearm licensee.
      Belanger has pleaded not guilty to all three charges. CNN has reached out to Belanger’s attorney for comment on the government’s allegations.
        The government’s filing describing Belanger’s alleged extremist activity, which was first reported by Rolling Stone, was submitted in response to a motion by the defendant to have his detention order reviewed. A judge ultimately denied his request.
          According to the government’s filing, a witness told investigators that Belanger was one of the leaders of a neo-Nazi affiliated group called Rapekrieg, 和 “procured weapons, uniforms, and tactical gear, and discussed committing attacks on a synagogue, Jewish persons, 女人, and minorities.
          The group also allegedly discussed raping theirenemiesand the rape ofwhite women to increase the production of white children in furtherance of Rapekrieg’s goal of creating a white ethno-state through accelerationist means,” 根据检察官.
          CNN报道了 that so-calledaccelerationismamong extremist groups seeks to foment divisiveness and polarization that will induce the collapse of the existing order and spark a civil war.
          According to a friend of Belanger who was interviewed by the FBI, Belanger, using a social media account with the name Adolf Hitler, received a document from another user discussing attacks on Jewish targets and containing the names and addresses of two popular Jewish community figures, according to the government’s filing.
          An alleged member of the Rapekrieg group was interviewed by the FBI and said group members had obtained uniforms and body armor, and had practiced together using real firearms approximately once a year since 2017, 检察官说.
          According to the same individual, Belanger and other Rapekrieg group members had discussed opening fire on a synagoguebut eventually decided that burning it down at night using Molotov cocktails was a better plan,” the government alleges.
          FBI agents interviewed other alleged members of the group who told investigators Belanger was an author of a Rapekrieg manifesto that contained numerous White nationalist, misogynistic and anti-Semitic passages.
          迄今为止, court records do not indicate Belanger has been charged with hate crimes nor conducting or threatening attacks.
          CNN has reached out to the US Attorney’s Office in Honolulu to determine whether any additional charges will be filed against Belanger or other members of the Rapekrieg group.
            The three counts associated with unlawfully obtaining a firearm carry a collective maximum sentence of 20 如果被定罪,将入狱多年, 根据检察官.
            Belanger’s trial is scheduled for September.
