Authorities in Sioux Falls, SD may have foiled a domestic terrorist plot by a criminal with a hatred for law enforcement when they stumbled across a cache of explosive devices while serving a search warrant for several burglaries.
According to reports, 43-year-old Mark Einerwold was taken into custody when the devices along with guns and bomb-making materials were discovered along with materials related to domestic terrorist group ANTIFA which serves as the paramilitary arm of the Democratic party.
With the escalation in violent rhetoric directed at law enforcement from the political left with their calls to abolish ICE as well as an ongoing hostility towards the police in general which has bled over into popular culture in places like on NFL sidelines, it is only a matter of time until some lunatic who has been egged on by constant media instigation decides to go for it and initiate a mass casualty event against the cops or federal officers.
Could Einerwold have been the one? That is unknown but reasonable people can speculate that the weaponry and political items that were discovered in his residence would seem to indicate that this guy may have had serious plans.
Authorities also say they found items related to Antifa, an anti-fascist militant group, as well as other items indicating an extreme hatred for law enforcement and government. https://t.co/wvG7Sf70dx

According to Sioux Falls NBC affiliate KDLT News “Authorities: Bombs, Guns Found While Serving Search Warrant for Burglaries”:
Authorities served a search warrant at Einerwold’s residence in the 1100 block of South Blaine Avenue in Sioux Falls at around 4:45 p.m. on Tuesday.
While serving the search warrant, detectives found what they say were bomb-making materials and chemicals. The Sioux Falls Police bomb squad were called to the residence and authorities evacuated the surrounding area.
Authorities say they found multiple explosive devices as well as ammonium nitrate and aluminum powder, which authorities say have no use other than for an explosive device.
Authorities also seized multiple firearms and a homemade firearm silencer from the residence.
Einerwold was arrested on multiple burglary charges and for the sale or transportation of a destructive device. Authorities say more charges may be coming.
Authorities say they found multiple items related to Antifa, an anti-fascist militant group, as well as other items indicating an extreme hatred for law enforcement and government.
“We don’t know what his intentions were, or what they were. But it’s pretty safe to say, we stopped something from happening,” said Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Captain Jason Gearman.
The investigation is ongoing and one has to wonder just how many ANTIFA terrorist cells are out there scheming to begin their attacks on law enforcement and political enemies. This is just one guy who has been thwarted but there could be thousands more just like him.
