Right-wing radio personality Lars Larson hosted on his radio show a man who had his guns confiscated by the FBI, asking his guest to spell out an elaborate plan he said he devised for murdering antifascist organizers in the United States.
On September 12, Larson hosted Shane Kohfield on his program so that Kohfield could detail, before a national radio audience, a plan he hatched to identify and kill antifascist activists. Kohfield made headlines earlier this year when he yelled outside the Portland mayor’s house that he would “slaughter” antifascists and had a “detailed plan on how I would wipe out antifa.” The FBI Joint Terrorism Task confiscated Kohfield’s weapons as a result of his threats.
Larson began the interview by thanking Kohfield for his time served in the military, although the duo butted heads at the beginning of the interview because Kohfield was seemingly unable to respond to Larson’s questions about his statements regarding killing antifascists. After pushing Kohfield for explanations, Larson asked Kohfield to explain his “detailed plan” for killing antifascists .
So Kohfield did, and it was broadcast nationally, over the airwaves. He described the plan this way:
First, veterans [will] join antifa social media pages and groups and get names of most active members of social media, along with getting the arrest records from rallies and write down all the names they see, as well as use arrest records. The veterans will use background check programs to find home addresses of all the members of antifa using the intelligence they had gathered.
The veterans will take a map of the cities where members of antifa are known to live there. Grid overlays will be placed over the maps of the cities. The veterans will be broken down into squads. Each squad will be assigned its own grid and given a list of names and addresses in their assigned grid square. … The veterans would use Route4Me to find the most expedient route to hunt down the most violent members of antifa in their beds at night until every one of them was gone and every city in America, if need be, in a single well-coordinated night. The losses for antifa would catastrophic.
Larson asked, “So you are planning to hunt down and kill members of antifa?”
Kohfield repeatedly denied that his elaborate plan was ever meant to be enacted, but rather that it would serve as a “nuclear deterrent.” After pressing Kohfield, Larson was able to get Kohfield to admit that if his plan was carried out, it would result in the murdering of antifascists.
