A man killed in Wednesday’s mass shooting at a San Bernardino, California, social service center was outspoken in his views against Islam.

Nicholas Thalasinos, who worked alongside alleged gunman Syed Farook in the environmental division at Inland Regional Center, was a Messianic Jew who filled his Facebook page with anti-Islam comments, the New York Post reported.

“On behalf of this guy… You can stick your Million Muslim March up your asses,” Thalasinos posted on Sept. 11, 2013, alongside a photo of a man plummeting to his death from the burning World Trade Center, the Post reported.

Another post from October 2013 included a similar photograph with the quote, “‘The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer’ — Barack Hussein Obama.”

On Nov. 17 of this year, Thalasinos posted a meme claiming to show dead Christians from a “Muslim riot” in Nigeria.

“Next time you try to excuse Muslim behavior, remember this image: This is Islam,” the meme read.

Under “Education” in his profile description, Thalasinos wrote: “Studied Conservatism at Limbaugh Institute of Advanced Conservative Studies.”

Thalasinos’ wife, Jennifer, gathered heartfelt condolence messages on her own Facebook page Thursday, the Post reported.

“Saying a prayer right now for you,” wrote one friend. “Please let me know if you need anything,” wrote another.

Fourteen people were killed when Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, opened fire at the Inland Regional Center. The Muslim couple was killed in a shootout with police after fleeing the massacre. Authorities have not ruled out terrorism as the motive.
