An anti-gay Christian extremist has been arrested in Las Vegas after threatening to kill LGBTI people in an online video.
Bryce Cuellar, a self-proclaimed ‘Christian Warrior’, posted a threatening video on Youtube on 1 July which was intercepted by Interpol.
According to police, Cuellar says in the video that ‘he is going to kill people and he cannot wait to use the rifle in a manner in which the Founding Fathers intended.’
He went on to say that he wanted to kill ‘gays, faggots, lesbians and satanists’.
The video was taken down quickly by Youtube; however, information passed to Las Vegas police by Interpol allowed them to easily identify Cuellar, who’d been arrested on numerous occasions over the last three years.
The police have also stated Cuellar viciously attacked his wife after he uploaded the video.
Cuellar, who has been charged with making terrorist threats, has said he was ‘angry and drunk’ when he uploaded the video.
Police have said that Cuellar has a large following online, with over 160,000 subscribers on Youtube. However, his account appears to have been mostly purged, instead showing a handful of conspiracy videos he posted over two years ago.
A gun fanatic, Cuellar’s Facebook page is filled with conspiracy theories, and claims he’s a blood relative of Anne Frank. His profile picture shows a young boy urinating on the LGBTI pride flag.
In a post about Pride parades, he said: ‘When I see footage of gay pride parades/demonstrations I think to myself “Damn, even animals have more class”. Homosexuals are just a bunch of wild heathens.’
