BREAKING: Valentine’s School Shooter Was A White Nationalist Terrorist
Valentine’s Day school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz was a member of a white nationalist militia, the leader of the group has cofirmed, telling Reuters by phone that Cruz “had some involvement with the Clearwater Republic of Florida cell at some point.”
On Thursday Jordan Jereb told the Associated Press Cruz had participated in paramilitary drills with his group, The Republic of Florida or ROF, a white-nationalist secessionist group which seeks to make Florida it’s own white ethno-state. According to Jereb, his group tries not to participate in modern life aside from holding “spontaneous random demonstrations”.

The group is indexed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which noted that group was “made up of kids barely old enough to buy guns”.
Jereb (who was once arrested for threatening and trying to extort a staffer of Florida’s Governor Rick Scott) claimed he did not personally know Cruz, and that Cruz “acted on his own behalf of what he just did, and he’s solely responsible for what he just did.”
He also suggested Cruz had “trouble with a girl” and that it was not coincidental that the 19 year old carried out his attack on Valentine’s day.

Jereb, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote “had been posting an onslaught of videos for months,” showing knife fighting techniques and fear-mongering about tyranny, which he filmed “with a handful of high school friends.”
One such young person is now the primary suspect in America’s worst school shooting yet, and charged with the premeditated murder of 17 people, including several children.
