Federal prosecutors on Friday charged an Oregon man who believes he is a woman for posting to a “trans woman support group” that he planned to go out in a “blaze of glory,” after a search of his home found 27 guns and “tens of thousands of rounds of ammunition.”

Elizabeth West was charged with making interstate threats based on the September 26 Facebook post to the group “Trans Woman Support Group,” which came as he said he believed he was about to be fired and was tired of “trans phobic assholes.”

“I’m too old to keep looking for jobs and I’ve had it up to here being bullied by trans phobic assholes I am left with no alternative…,” West wrote, according to court documents. “I’ve been preparing for this moment for a long time at least then I’ll be remember [sic] I have no family no friends… So there really isn’t any point living any more?”

The FBI did not arrest West after the September interview that was ultimately used to justify charges. Instead, it arrested him months later after checks of his social media exhibited racial hatred towards black people, immigrants, and Jews. His social media bio, according to the court documents, was, “A Nazi dominatrix from Hell, who is tired of the blackening of America and Europe and ready to stand up to the Black orcs and the Jewish Wizards.”

His animosity of other races appears to be heavily related to West’s gender ideology. West hatred of black people, it says in court documents, is because they often “misgender” him and a group of black men once physically assaulted him. For immigrants, the hatred was because he learned of an immigrant on Oregon’s public healthcare plan who got free transgender surgery, while West would have to pay for his own gender surgery.

For months, the FBI monitored his social media and questioned him about his racial views. On January 9, after agents monitoring him were alerted of of a gun purchase, it executed the search warrant, and arrested West. The affidavit references “far-right terror,” “white supremacy,” and “alt-right extremism,” portraying the madman as a conservative terrorist.

The FBI at that point called him pretending to work for the electric company to get confirmation of his address, then subpoenaed X, formerly Twitter, for confirmation that it was his account, even though the affidavit did not allege that any of the racist X posts were crimes. In the end, the justification it used to charge him was the transgenderism-fueled Facebook post from months earlier.

“I believe there is probable cause to believe West’s original Facebook posting constitutes an interstate threat, especially based on the accompanying photograph of firearms. Additionally, the large amount of weapons and ammunition recovered from her residence and subsequent X posts (including clear violent animus toward specific minority groups and the display of firearms) indicate a willingness to elevate her original threat of violence towards specific minority groups,” FBI agent Damara Gonzalez wrote.

“SA Gonzalez also located approximately 48 hand drawings of … a superhero, wielding a sword, stabbing, hanging, mutilating, and killing men, most of whom she refers to as ‘niggers.’ One image is titled ‘That’s Ms. Wolf to you! The Man SlayerQueen of the under world,” the affidavit said.

The arrest was first reported by CourtWatch.

The FBI has shown a pattern in recent years of labeling its targets as far-right white supremacist domestic terrorists, even when the facts indicate otherwise. It then cites statistics to say that white supremacist domestic terrorists are the biggest threat to the country.

In November, the FBI arrested a transgender-identifying man for threatening to shoot up schools “on behalf of the transgender community.” The man modeled his plans off of the transgender-identifying woman who shot up the Christian Covenant School in Tennessee, but the lead fact presented by the FBI was that he had used racist language online, according to a Daily Wire report.

The Daily Wire also reported late last year on a gang of pedophile Satanists that was sexually torturing girls for years — when the FBI arrested member Angel Almeida, it portrayed the gang as white supremacist, even though Almedia is Hispanic, called the judge a “cracker,” and the FBI described the group’s aims as bringing the downfall of western civilization.

It also has a pattern of ignoring serious crimes unless or until there was an anti-conservative angle.

A man who brought the FBI evidence of sexual abuse by the Satanists said agents seemed less interested in the fact that it had abused dozens of girls, almost all white, than the fact that a member once said the n-word, saying it was investigating “racially motivated domestic violent extremism.”

In another case, the FBI explicitly decided to let a man who tried to rape a child walk free so that it could focus on January 6, enabling him to go on to assault another boy.
