You might have saw the story on social media the other day- Trump Supporter Arrested For Trying To Kill Joe Biden! Well that’s not quite how it goes. The story starts when police found an abandoned van in bank parking lot in Kannapolis, North Carolina. Upon observation they saw several weapons, ammo and explosives inside and later executed a search of the van. According to ABC 7 “…a search of the van revealed approximately $509,000 in cash; books on survival, bomb making, improvised weapons and Islam, drawings of swastikas and planes crashing into buildings. The search also turned up additional firearms, according to the agent.”
The driver of the van, 19 year old Alexander Treisman, the son of a prominent Jewish lawyer and activist who once arranged a meeting between President Bush and the Dalai Lama, was arrested when he returned to the bank and asked about the van. A search of his electronic devices conducted afterwards turned up even more disturbing results that included a fascination with mass shootings as well as videos and images of child pornography. Also discovered was a meme he posted saying “should I kill Joe Biden” along with a post after Bernie Sanders lost the primary saying that he had to “save bernie”. Search results on his phone also revealed that he had been looking up Biden’s home addresses. Now, if I were a dishonest man just looking to push a narrative like mass media does, I would say that this guy was another member of The Violent Left, but in all honesty with him being all over the place going from swastika’s to islam and Christchurch to 9-11, it is evident that his problem is a mental one and that he is not politically motivated one way or the other. His mother stated that he has high functioning autism.
Just to further state his apparent confusion, according to Haaretz “… court document alleges that Treisman glorified mass shootings. It says he once drove past the site of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, in which 57 people were killed, and recorded a video with the voice message “There it is. That’s it. That’s the one, that’s where they did it. Allah Akbar! Ah hah, nice.” To date there is no evidence that islam played any role in the Mandalay Bay mass shooting. Again, this is obviously not a politically motivated individual, it is someone who for whatever reason has a disturbing fascination with terrorism. The Daily Beast reports that “…his friends and family had stopped speaking to him due to his “remarks and jokes” about mass shootings and the 9/11 terror attacks.” The linked articles above go into his family life as well as the disturbing details of what he was found with more than I am comfortable with discussing here.
