Paranoia and delusions of persecution: the attacker’s messages to the Capitol | Univision Attacks News

On Thursday night, Noah Green left the apartment he shared with his brother Brendan and sent him an alarming message: “I’m sorry, but I’m going away and I’m going to be homeless. Thank you for everything you’ve done. I admired when I was a child. You inspired me a lot, “he said, according to the brother.

He himself had blamed his teammates and roommates in college for drugging him and apparently had some kind of dependency and suffered withdrawal symptoms such as hallucinations, palpitations, headache and suicidal thoughts, which could also be related to a mental illness, said the brother to Post.

The Nation of Islam

On his now-deleted Facebook page, Green promoted speeches by Farrakhan and Elijah Muhammad, the organization’s former leader, according to various reports.

The young man also published the certificate of a course received in the Nation of Islam and mentioned that Farrakhan was its spiritual leader.

The messages

In recent days, Green apparently posted several messages on social media referencing his sympathy with the Nation of Islam and saying that the American government was the main enemy of African Americans. He also said that he feared the FBI and the CIA and that he had lost his job.

Press reports indicate that weeks before the attack Green had said on his social media that the federal government was following him and controlling his mind.

In a March 17 post on his Facebook page, he wrote that “these last few years have been tough and the last few months have been tougher.”

“I have been put through some of the biggest and most unimaginable tests of my life. I am currently unemployed after I quit my job partly due to afflictions, but ultimately in search of a spiritual journey, ”he wrote.
