Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest rally update: Organizer John Ritzheimer claims he’s being hacked

PHOENIX – Ever since Friday’s “Freedom of Speech Rally” outside a Phoenix mosque, its controversial organizer says hackers have ruined his life.

He called it a “Freedom of Speech Rally.” But, many counter-protestors say it was protest against all Muslims and Islam. John Ritzheimer admits this whole thing blew up in his face and he was ill-prepared for what happened outside the mosque.

“I went there that night with a gun on my hip, fully thinking I was going to die, that a terrorist was going to try to kill me for exercising my first amendment,” Ritzheimer says in a video post he made on social media.

ABC15 asked for proof he was being hacked and he sent us a link showing his private information exposed in shocking detail, including: his full name, date of birth, social security number, mother’s maiden name, IP addresses, credit card numbers, you name it.

At the end of the link, there’s even a message which says in part, quote: “Jon you are the exactly what’s wrong with America. You call yourself a patriot. Freedom and liberty for all, unless you are a Muslim of course.”

The message goes on to say, quote: “You are the true terrorist not the people you rally against. Please go die slowly in a dark hole alone.”

Ritzheimer says, “I hate seeing my family going through this distress, it’s killing them. They just want their normal lives back.”

He also claims someone fraudulently charged $3,000 to his credit card. The Peoria Police Department says he has filed a fraud report and the investigation is still pending.
