From the New York Post:
Fehring pledged to terrorize Manhattan’s 2021 Pride parade, a Pride event in Huntington, and an LGBTQ-themed night at a Long Beach club, the feds said
The hatemonger claimed he would make the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting “look like a cakewalk,” according to officials.
A letter to Manhattan’s landmark Stonewall Inn read “we will blow up/burn your establishments down. We will shoot those who frequent your dens of [expletives].”

One letter to a Black-owned Brooklym barbershop which has a large gay clientele read, “Your shop is the perfect place for a bombing … or beating the scum that frequents your den of [expletive] into a bloody pool of steaming flesh.”
