The government made its pitch on Thursday to deny bail for Jeffrey Clark, the alt-right crony of alleged Pittsburgh synagogue shooter Robert Bowers.

The Washington resident, who had followed Bowers on alt-right social media platforms, was arrested on a gun charge after relatives warned cops about his alleged racist outbursts.

Noting Clark’s extensive involvement in the “white nationalist movement,” the bombshell document cites the suspect fantasized about murdering “Jews and blacks” and that four boxes of firearm parts were confiscated.

Citing United States v. Ditrapano, in which “offense of being a person unlawfully using or addicted to a controlled substance and in possession of a firearm or ammunition, with which defendant was charged, constituted a crime of violence within meaning of Bail Reform Act,” the government is hoping to keep 31-year-old Clark behind bars.

Shortly before Bowers entered the synagogue on Oct. 27, murdering 11 worshipers, he posted a message on social networking site Gab that read: “(Jewish-American nonprofit organization) HIAS likes to bring invaders in that kill our people. I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics. I’m going in.”

The ensuing FBI probe of Bowers revealed one of his followers was Clark. Just hours after the gruesome attack, Clark’s younger brother Edward committed suicide on Theodore Roosevelt Island, having shot himself with a pistol.

Further digging by the agency showed the Clark brothers attended the August 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va. Online photos of the siblings show them standing next to James Fields, the white nationalist who allegedly slammed his car into the crowd of protesters that injured dozens and killed Heather Heyer.

The court document also claims Jeffrey Clark were fans of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, “Unabomber” terrorist Ted Kaczynski and cult leader Charles Manson. Clark believed a race revolution was on the horizon and desired to expedite it.

Jeffrey Clark purportedly condoned Bowers’ slaughter because he believed a gay Jewish couple was having an adopted baby circumcised and that the victims deserved their fate.
