( – On Monday, former Marine Chance Brannon was sentenced to nine years imprisonment over his 2022 act of firebombing a Planned Parenthood clinic. 

Brannon, who had been serving active duty in the Marines at the time of the March 2022 Molotov attack on the Orange County clinic, has been dubbed by prosecutors as a neo-Nazi.

Prosecutors have also claimed that Brannon intended to attack a number of other locations, including the Dodger Stadium during a celebration for LGBTQ+ Pride Night. He was allegedly also intending to invade a number of Jewish homes in Los Angeles.

Last fall Brannon pleaded guilty to several charges including destruction of property, explosives possession, and conspiracy.

Mehtab Syed, the assistant director of the Los Angeles FBI noted that the extremist views of the man had led him to target groups and individuals that did not align with his neo-Nazi worldview. He added that this is what had caused him to attack and kill innocent people. He continued by saying that he was proud of the work the Joint Terrorism Task Force had done to apprehend the man while also praising the prosecutors for their work in sentencing him. 

The investigators also noted that Brannon had often used slurs against minority groups, and had even previously called for the country to be cleansed. Brannon in a text message to a friend had even claimed that he wanted the election to be over so that they could have a race war.
