White Supremacists Threaten to Assassinate ‘Anti-White’ Pope Francis During US Visit

A group of white supremacists have threatened Pope Francis ahead of his first trip to the United States. Feeling challenged by the popes messages of tolerance and acceptance, they have threatened to take his life if he comes to the U.S.

The threats were made on various white supremacist forums and similar threats have been made in the past towards other public figures.

Raw Story reports:

“This mofo needs a third eye, right in the middle of where his two existing eyes are,” wrote someone using the handle “Freedom lover.”

Another, using the handle “Peace through Stormfront,” wrote, “White people need to be protected from the genocidal anti-white Pope and the genocidal anti-white religion he pushes.”

The Post article was published on another white supremacist forum, Vanguard News Network, with user “John Adams” responding, “The pope deserves to be executed for crimes against the White race.”

According to SITE, members of these forums have been deadly in the past. Users have included Wade Michael Page, who killed six people in a Sikh temple shooting in 2012, Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 and injured 241 in 2011 in Norway, and Frazier Glenn Miller, who killed three at a Jewish community center in Kansas.
