There is very little information on the internet about him right now.
Heavy has an article with all of the details that currently exist, and there is not much there. They are not digging up any social media stuff, not even any pro-Trump stuff. All they have is that he was registered as a Republican.
This is the most interesting part.
The Toledo Blade talked with James Fields’ mom, Samantha Bloom. She told a reporter that Fields had texted her on Friday saying he dropped his cat off at her apartment and was going to an “alt-right” rally in Virginia.
She said she told her son: “I told him to be careful. [And] if they’re going to rally to make sure he’s doing it peacefully.” She said he didn’t say anything about the rally possibly being extremist and she had no idea he was involved when she returned home from dinner on Saturday night. She really didn’t know what the alt-right rally meant, only to think that it had “something” to do with Trump.
He had only moved out of her apartment about five or six months ago, she said, after they moved to northwest Ohio from Kentucky for her job.
In August 2015, Bloom had updated her Facebook account to show a photo of her and her son, and wrote about how happy she was that he had just left for boot camp. Military records under Fields’ name indicated that he only lasted in boot camp a few months.
“Bloom” is an almost exclusively Jewish name.
He looks Jewish.

Or at least like he could be Jewish.
And I mean, look. Go to this Wikipedia list of people named “Bloom.” They are pretty much all Jewish (except Orlando Bloom, who is not American). We’ll know soon enough. /pol/ is on the case.
Weirdly, they are claiming this was “premeditated.”

I don’t know what that even means. Why would he have premeditated that sort of thing? It seems like a berserker move. But whatever, the terrorist police chief is black.
The Government Says Terrorism
They’ve been looking for the great white terrorist forever now, so they’re jumping all over this.
Of course, the evil spic Ted Cruz is leading the charge.
I urge the Department of Justice to immediately investigate and prosecute this grotesque act of domestic terrorism. pic.twitter.com/AwJLsfUEHl

Orrin Hatch says Nazis are evil.
We should call evil by its name. My brother didn't give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home. -OGH

Meanwhile, the FBI is opening a civil rights investigation.

It looks to me as though he was probably Jewish, and going there to fight Nazis, but is insane and didn’t know who he was crashing into. I just think if he was in any way associated with the Alt-Right, they would have found that information immediately and posted it.
I have to go to sleep now.
This has been a long, weird day that will go down in history.
The world has changed.
We now live in a different world.
I might be late with my posts in the morning. It’s a rare occurrence that. But I am very tired. I feel like I was at the event.
Thank you all.
We are entering a new phase now.
A whole new realm.
I will have more analysis and commentary on the event from people who were there tomorrow when I wake up.
