FBI investigating Oregon transgender woman over racist, antisemitic social media posts

The FBI is investigating a transgender woman for allegedly using social media to repost a mass shooting, upload sinister racial content and threaten her “transphobic” coworkers.

Elizabeth West, 56, who lives in Oregon, reposted livestreamed footage of the 2019 Christchurch mosque shooting on Dec. 3, according to a federal affidavit. The original post’s caption allegedly read, “and it’ll stop one way or another.”

Two days later, the affidavit says, West uploaded a photo of two assault rifles, a shotgun and two handguns and commented, “don’t forget white women.” The photo allegedly followed several other posts of firearms, with one captioned, “bring it on Blackie.”

Later that week, the transgender woman uploaded an image of several guns in response to a picture showing Black men in stocks, according to the federal affidavit. The old photo’s caption allegedly stated, “Here [sic] me out: …but instead of pies, you throw bricks.”

West alleges three Black men assaulted her in 1990, which she claims set off a “personal prejudice” against Black people. West also believes Black customer service agents misgender her intentionally, according to the affidavit.

The transgender woman’s racist posts coincided with various antisemitic videos, memes and statements containing violence against Jewish people and idolizations of Hitler, according to the federal affidavit. Proclaiming herself as a “Nazi dominatrix from H—, who is … ready to stand up to the Black orcs and the Jewish wizards,” West allegedly threatened a user who she claimed was Jewish.

“Your days are numbered,” West said, according to the federal affidavit. “Your people are now under the microscope, and most of the civilized world is revisiting the Jewish question.”

The affidavit also says West claimed all Jewish people are “disgusting sewer rats” and was “proud” to say her parents were Nazis who “herded” Jews into gas chambers.

On Nov. 30, West also posted a picture of General George S. Patton with the caption, “We defeated the wrong enemy,” according to the affidavit. In the following weeks, she allegedly uploaded another photo of her own Nazi flag and commented, “Your time will come soon” and “Merry Christmas everyone and may all your Christmas wishes be white.”

In September, the FBI received a tip for one of West’s Facebook posts in which she allegedly appeared to threaten violence toward her coworkers.

“I wish I had better news to tell but what I’m writing to you right now is the fact that I’m at the end of my rope I’m probably gonna get fired from [this] job,” West wrote, according to the affidavit. “I’m too old to keep looking for jobs and I’ve had it up to here being bullied by transphobic a——- I am left with no alternative. I’ll probably have to go out in a blaze of glory.”

She allegedly continued, admitting, “I’ve been preparing for this moment a long time at least then I’ll be remembered I have no family no friends … So there really isn’t any point living anymore? I’m just gonna have to do what I have to do and pray for the gods to forgive me.” The post included a photo of West’s firearms, according to the affidavit.

Upon searching her home last week, FBI agents seized 16 rifles, 11 handguns, tens of thousands of ammunition rounds, gun accessories, 48 drawings, a composition notebook and a “black shadow” journal. The drawings depict West’s “veil mistress,” who wields a sword and stabs, hangs and mutilates Black men, according to the affidavit. One picture is allegedly titled, “That’s Ms. Wolf to you! The Man Slayer-Queen of the under world.”

West’s composition notebook lists her coworkers next to images of rifles and hallways, according to the affidavit. In the “black shadow” journal, which she kept from 2008 to 2016, West allegedly wrote, “blood, death, self torture self hatred wicked thoughts of mass murder at the gloved hands of the veil mistress” before drawing a Black boy who dies in a car accident.

A confidential source for the FBI says police arrested West for inserting a shotgun into her father’s mouth and pulling the trigger in 1993, although the gun did not fire. West allegedly refuses agents’ requests to keep her weapons, stating they are her lifeline and “money in the bank.”

West’s psychiatrist allegedly wants her to check into a hospital for an extended stay.
