Nicholas Thalasinos kept a National Rifle Association sticker affixed to the front window of his house.
California mass shooting victim Nicholas Thalasinos was a devoted husband, an outspoken critic of radicalized Muslims — and fervent supporter of the NRA.
Thalasinos, 52, lived with his wife Jennifer in a ranch house in Colton, a National Rifle Association sticker affixed to the front window.
The county health worker wrote an online message in July blasting a state bill that would ban people with concealed carry licenses from toting firearms on school grounds. “This is an INVITATION to MASS MURDER — the BLOODBATH that will follow will be HORRIFIC!!!” Thalasinos wrote on Facebook.
That message was tame compared with what he had to say about Muslims.
Victim Nicholas Thalasinos was a fervent supporter of the National Rifle Association.
“On behalf of this guy … You can stick your Million Muslim March up your asses,” Thalasinos wrote on the 12-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks alongside a photo of a victim plummeting from the World Trade Center.
Thalasinos, who moved to California from southern New Jersey, was a Messianic Jew and staunch defender of Israel. His death prompted an outpouring of grief online by users who long cheered his provocative posts.
“Yesterday I lost a friend. Yesterday we lost a friend. Yesterday Israel and the Jewish people lost a dear loyal friend,” wrote a Facebook pal. “He was cold-bloodedly murdered by representatives of the same brutal ideology against which he stood so uprightly and fought so bravely.”
Thalasinos posted a typically controversial message following last week’s shooting at a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs. “The Police will now go into the Planned Parenthood crime scene and check for dead bodies — will that include all the BUTCHERED BABIES?”
In his final Facebook post, Thalasinos described a venomous message sent by a user named Med Ali Zarouk.
“You will never sucsseed (sic) to make a country for jews,” it read. “Soon you’ll get your ass kicked, you will die and never see Israel as country belive (sic) me never.”
Thalasinos mocked the commenter. “Besides his SPARKLING SPELLING SKILLS and FLAWLESS GRAMMAR he seems to forget ISRAEL IS ALREADY A COUNTRY!” he wrote.
