JON RITZHEIMER, U.S. Marine veteran and de facto leader of the Arizona anti-Islam movement, is planning another protest against Islam — “so big,” he claims, “it’s going to span the globe”
Jon Ritzheimer at anti-Islam rally in Phoenix at the end of May
Phoenix New Times There’s no specific date set yet, but he anticipates the rally being “a few months out” so that as many people as possible can prepare and join his movement.
Attendees are encouraged to rally in front of any nearby mosque and to invoke their Second Amendment rights and come armed “in case [they] come under that much anticipated attack.”
Earlier interview with Anderson Cooper of CNN:
He speaks and writes frequently about how “patriots are getting sick of the defense” and are “ready for offense,” and he often notes that despite receiving death threats — he’s apparently taken his family into hiding — he refuses to back down.
“When you get on an airplane, they tell you, in case of a loss in cabin pressure, you need to put your own mask on first before you help put the mask on of others. Well, I’m currently putting my own mask on. But I assure you, I will step to the plate to help others. I’ve fucking had it. Fucking had it.”
Every video he posts, whether he’s shooting a Quran or condemning the Iranian nuclear deal, is viewed thousands of time and shared widely across social media (15 minutes after he posted the video about the global protest, 40 people had shared it, and two hours later, the share count was 450).
“Eyes are open and on you Jon. You have the ear of the people, my friend. They will follow you,” one reader, who identified himself as Cai Irvin, wrote in a comment under a recent video. Many other comments refer to Ritzheimer as their leader or the man they’re looking to for the next order.
