Ex-Marine Anti-Muslim Rally Organizer In Hiding
The Islamophobic bigot who ran a Muslim-haring rally in Phoenix says he’s now in hiding because of death threats.
“This is proof tyranny is in America,” said Jon Ritzheimer, revealing he’s come under siege since taking to Facebook to organize the event.
Up to 500 protesters gathered in 100-degree heat — some clutching assault rifles, American flags and placards — in the latest flashpoint in the U.S. anti-Islam movement.
“I’m having to sell my house. My family is going into hiding,” an armed Ritzheimer, flanked by burly men wearing “F— Islam!” T-shirts, told reporters at the rally. “They’re calling for lone wolves to behead me. That’s terrorism right here in America…
“I hope more patriots take a stand,”Ritzheimer said.
