An Indiana man is facing charges for allegedly posting online threats to harm attendees of the Free Speech Rally in August.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says that 32-year-old Eric Radulovic was arrested Friday morning on a charge of transmitting in interstate and foreign commerce a threat to injure the person of another.

Radulovic is accused of posing as a member of the “Alt-Right” or white supremacist movement, anonymously posting a message on the 4chan.org discussion board saying that he would shoot whites at the rally as a means to obtain sympathy for the “Alt-right” movement.

In the post Radulovic said he would “bring a Remington 700 and start shooting Alt-right guys.”

The post went on to say ” We need sympathy after that landwhale got all the liberals teary eyed, so someone is going to have to make it look like the left is becoming more violent and radicalized. It’s a false flag for sure, but I’ll be aiming for the more tanned/dark haired muddied jeans in the crowd so real whites won’t have to worry.”

The indictment alleges that Radulovic posted this for the purpose of issuing a threat and knew that it would be interpreted as a threat.

Radulovic is scheduled to appear in Boston on June 20.
