The FBI arrested Juan Thompson in connection with bomb threats made against Jewish Community Centers. He was planing to run for mayor and had been fired for fake news.

Here is some background from the St. Louis’ River Front Times:

Disgraced former journalist Juan Thompson has been arrested on federal cyberstalking charges after the FBI traced multiple bomb threats against Jewish community centers and the Anti-Defamation League to the St. Louis native, authorities say.

Thompson, who was the subject of a Riverfront Times investigation last year, called in the threats as part of a bizarre scheme to frame an ex-girlfriend, according to the Justice Department.

“Today, we have charged Juan Thompson with allegedly stalking a former romantic interest by, among other things, making bomb threats in her name to Jewish Community Centers and to the Anti-Defamation League,” U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara said in a statement. “Threats of violence targeting people and places based on religion or race — whatever the motivation — are unacceptable, un-American, and criminal. We are committed to pursuing and prosecuting those who foment fear and hate through such criminal threats.”

Thompson, 31, was once a reporter for The Intercept, but he was fired after the New York City-based news site found he had been making up sources. Our investigation turned up even more journalistic problems dating back to his college days at Vassar in Poughkeepsie, New York.

I went through his tweets so you don’t have to. Here’s a sampling:

WARNING: Foul language in tweets to follow! 

This is pinned to the top of his profile:

Juan Thompson, Jewish bomb threats,

He describes himself as anti-capitalist: “You show me a capitalist, and I’ll show you a bloodsucker.”

His page is littered with tweets about the “white media” and “white people,” calling Trump a “pedophile/racist/fetishist” and “coward,” and a lot of other material you’d expect to find on a radical Leftist’s timeline.

Shall we begin?

Talib is one of his aspirations:

He admires Malcom X:

He got a tattoo of Malcom X:

He’s not a fan of Ann Coulter:

He doesn’t seem to like Hillary Clinton either:

He claims the FBI visited him over some tweets:

He lived in Paris for some time:

He doesn’t stand for the national anthem:

He’s definitely not a fan of Donald Trump:

He’s not a fan of Ronald Reagan, either:

He believes liberals and Nazis have a lot in common:

He believes the only good liberal and fascist is “an unconscious one.”:

He celebrated Scalia’s death:

This might have something to do with that FBI investigation:

He is anti-police:

He celebrated the brutal ‘BLM kidnapping’ of the kid with special needs:

If you haven’t figured it out by now, he’s a racist:

He traveled to Standing Rock and other Leftist destinations:


He doesn’t eat meat:

He’s not a fan of Obama:

He believes Ferguson and Baltimore are examples of change:

He planned to run for Mayor of St. Louis:

Thompson was fired from The Intercept for fabricating quotes and sources. Here is the official statement from The Intercept following the news of his arrest (h/t

We were horrified to learn this morning that Juan Thompson, a former employee of The Intercept, has been arrested in connection with bomb threats against the ADL and multiple Jewish Community Centers in addition to cyberstalking. These actions are heinous and should be fully investigated and prosecuted. We have no information about the charges against Thompson other than what is included in the criminal complaint. Thompson worked for The Intercept from November 2014 to January 2016, when he was fired after we discovered that he had fabricated sources and quotes in his articles.

So there you have it, Juan Thompson, the leftist nut who threatened to bomb Jewish community centers in a nutshell.

He apparently only made 8 of the threats to JCCs, so there are still suspects who need to be caught.
