Not all neo-Nazis are white, it seems.
Because a non-white Chinese-American, who claims to be a neo-Nazi, has allegedly threatened other minorities with extermination.
Chinese-American neo-Nazi arrested for threatening Hispanic woman
The Chinese-American neo-Nazi, Eric Lin, has been arrested after purportedly calling for the extermination of the country's minorities.
His threats were laid out in messages sent to a Hispanic woman in Miami.
The victim, an immigrant from Spain, had received the messages from 35-year-old Lin over Facebook, from May to August, the Miami New Times reported.
Lin was subsequently arrested on Aug. 16 in Seattle.
His actions included:
- Planning to send US$10,000 (S$13,850) to a man to beat the victim up,
- Coming up with a scheme to kidnap the victim and stuff her in a plastic bin, as well as
- Repeatedly threatening to kill all Hispanics in Miami.
Wanted to kidnap victim
MNT reported that Lin had supposedly contacted another man named Chris to beat up and kidnap his victim.
Lin initially offered US$10,000 to Chris to beat up the woman.
He had allegedly written: "I was wondering if you can go to Miami and beat up this Spic who insulted me. I can pay you US$10,000."
However, Lin subsequently changed his mind and asked Chris to kidnap her and stuff her into a plastic bin instead, without killing her, for a price of US$25,000 (S$34,640).
He allegedly wrote: "The Plan is you and Mara convince her that you are Rich White Americans people she looks up to. And then get her into a rented house or mansion and chain her up and put her in a Rubber maid Plastic Bin."
"Then you got to drive her to Seattle, Washington, upon which I will pay you $25,000 cash. You don't need to kill her her hurt her at most you will be charged with Kidnapping. Nothing will happen to you if you get the Right lawyers She's a Spic who Hates White Americans... I doubt the FBI would care much about her."
Sent 150 pages worth of racist and violent messages
The victim received racist and violent messages that came up to about 150 pages.
They had been sent from two Facebook accounts used by Lin, the FBI's affidavit on the matter revealed.
The two accounts were named Eric A. Schopenhauer and Jake Howard.
Threatened to rape and kill victim
Some of Lin's messages saw him threaten to rape and kill his victim.
On June 7, he sent a message to his victim which stated that he would, "enslave, rape, and use you like a baby-making machine."
He further added that he would kill her with a rifle while supposedly holding a dagger used by the SS -- the Nazi party's paramilitary organisation
Praised Hitler and Trump, called for race war against minorities
Lin's messages also saw him express his admiration for Adolf Hitler on multiple occasions.
An image sent on May 30 purportedly saw him superimpose Hitler's face on his own.
Meanwhile, another message he allegedly wrote on July 9 read:
"By the authority of ADOLF HITLER AND GOD I HEREBY DECLARE SPANISH AND ALL SPANISH-SPEAKING PEOPLE ILLEGAL. [T]hat's ALL I NEED AUTHORITY FROM ADOLF HITLER TO ACT. I FOLLOW ONLY ADOLF HITLER AND THEN GOD. THEY ARE ONE AND THE SAME
Lin also called on U.S. President Donald Trump to launch a racial war against the country's other minorities.
In a message supposedly sent on July 19, Lin supposedly wrote:
"I thank god every day Donald John Trump is President and that he will launch a Racial War and Crusade to keep the Niggers, Spics, and Muslims and any dangerous non-White or Ethnically or Culturally foreign group 'In Line.' By 'in Line' it is meant that they will either be sent to 'Concentration Camps' or dealt with Ruthlessly and Vigorously by the United States Military."
This is not the first time Lin has committed a crime.
Lin is a repeat offender with multiple crimes committed from 2008 to 2012.
These crimes have included being convicted of making harassing phone calls in 2009 and breaking into a house to steal a rifle in 2010.
Lin was originally named Cheng Zhaoyuan.
However, he changed his name in 2005.
