A New York State court employee set to go on trial this month for threatening to “slaughter” members of congress is also a racist anti-Semite, federal prosecutors claim in court papers filed Thursday.

Brendan Hunt, an Occupy Wall Street activist turned Trump supporter, was arrested in January for allegedly threatening to kill Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)

Prosecutors have asked a judge to let them admit evidence of Hunt’s far-right xenophobic and hateful views at his trial, which starts on April 19 in Brooklyn Federal Court.

“Previous generations were right to be suspicious of immigrants,” Hunt wrote in a Nov. 5, 2020 grammatically challenged text message, prosecutors said. “Look at the mafias that were set up by the jews, italians, and even the irish. New York has been completely taken over by zionist jews who have loyalty to israel not america.”

Hunt also wrote about how second generation immigrants are “low IQ mongoloids” who should be kicked out of the country because they “terrorize our citizens” and refuse to assimilate, according to the feds.

In a Jan. 12 message, he said he wanted to move to a state with a “decent white population” so that he could move out of “Jew York Shitty.”

“So if we have to stay here you could at least let me try to make this house habitable and produce the next gen of our family (if i can even find a suitable white pro-american mate in this jungle of n----rs, s---s, k---s, and g---s),” he wrote to someone he lives with.

Hunt also had a copy of Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof’s jailhouse manifesto, which details the killer’s white supremacist and anti-Semitic beliefs.

“The defendant’s knowledge and expression of white supremacist and anti-Semitic propaganda, beliefs, and symbols is critical to establishing his state of mind at the time he made his threats,” wrote David Kessler, the assistant U.S. attorney on the case.

Hunt worked as an assistant court analyst for the Office of Court Administration and was suspended without pay after his arrest. His father is a retired Queens family court judge, John Hunt.
