WASHINGTON (AP) — A former U.S. Marine Corps member who a court document says pledged support to the Islamic State and expressed a desire to “conduct a violent revolution against whites” is facing federal weapons charges after allegedly illegally purchasing an AK-47 from an FBI informant.

Clark Calloway of Washington, D.C., made his first appearance in federal court on Friday where the 38-year-old construction worker was ordered jailed until a hearing Wednesday. He’s charged with possession of a firearm or ammunition by a felon and transportation of a firearm with the intent to commit a felony. Each charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

Prosecutors say Calloway paid $250 for the firearm, which had been disabled by law enforcement, and was arrested when he took possession of it Thursday.

 

According to a court document, the FBI began investigating Calloway in 2016. The document says he posted “numerous violent and threatening statements,” ”friended” several hundred Islamic State fighters and sympathizers, joined IS Facebook groups and posted pro-IS propaganda. An investigation revealed he maintains at least two active Facebook accounts, “one related to his extremist racial views and one related to his pro-ISIS views,” the court document said, referring to the IS.

In 2016 Calloway, who is black, posted about “his desire to conduct a violent revolution against whites and conducting a race war,” writing: “Let’s put bullets in them.”

The document shows that over the course of the investigation, Calloway came into contact with three FBI sources. In response to a question, he told the informant from whom he purchased the AK-47 that the best way to “do something” was to have simultaneous attacks on police stations “all over the country.”

Later, he told the same informant that he was purchasing the AK-47 “to be ready to do something here.” He named a police station in Washington as a potential target, the court document suggests. But after Calloway was arrested, he characterized his Facebook posts as “propaganda” and “talking trash” and “denied that he planned to carry out an attack,” the document says. He acknowledged talking about attacking police stations, but denied referencing a specific police station. He told FBI agents that he was aware he couldn’t have a weapon because he’s a felon but wanted the AK-47 for “a rainy day” and needed it “for the race war.”

Calloway is a construction worker who lived alone and served time in prison for stabbing someone, a 30-page affidavit says. He pleaded guilty in December 2002. After his release, he was ordered to receive mental health and substance abuse treatment.

The FBI began investigating Calloway in June after an employee saw his public Facebook page showed “pictures associated with jihad and terrorism, including individuals walking with rocket launchers, machine guns and other weapons, and individuals carrying the black flag commonly associated with [ISIS].”

  1. You would think a Marine would be Pro United States. Maybe why he is a former, Ex Marine. I guess when you are Racist it makes you against things. In Clark Calloway’s case, he hates Whites so he decided to turn against his country and want to Commit Treason for showing support of ISIS. Funny how Racist Black people turn toward Islam when that has been the most oppressive on Blacks (Abeds) since the 7th Century. But as always, It’s the White Mans fault. Never mind that Slave Traders were Muslim or The Republican backed NRA helped Blacks in the South defend themselves against The Democrats KKK. Facts are not needed by Liberals.

  2. Well, well now, jus’ looky he’a! If’n ya’ll ain’t jus’ the real eff’in dirtbag drop-dead spittin’ image o’ the devil, himself!!! DROP DEAD DIRTBAG!!!!!

  3. Common connections that seem to link those recruited by the muslims is their gender – typically male, age – young to middle age, background – criminal, racist, mentally ill, and having done prison time. While its grand to hear the f.b.i. is involved in catching a lot of these recruits it is also troubling to hear a lot of them apparently so easily taken with the view that these recruits are all about isis. Many muslims who are not part of isis specifically have and continue to commit acts of terror often as deadly. In fact, authorities have often gone out of their way to not link violence or its potential to the muslim community. This is now backfiring with that approach that covered up islamic influence on many muslim acts of violence (and not just those acts committed by isis) and creating dangerous situations in the larger community.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
