The Pink Flamingo’s favorite liberal, The Feathered Bastard, has a really, really, umm…. Well, read the headline for yourself – and you decide. Is it possible the US Border Patrol is working with J. T. Ready and his merry little band of neo-Nazis? Say it ain’t so!
From the SPLC:
“…Ready is a racist and an anti-Semite. His frequent postings on New Saxon are remarkably crude. Among other things, he has written that “the Jew is a two-headed cancer which corrupts and putrefies all that is natural and noble upon this earth.” Today, Ready made incendiary comments to Gawker about the Judge who placed an injunction on Arizona’s anti-immigration law SB1070, saying, “Perhaps [Judge Bolton] should step her ass outside the air-conditioned courtroom sometime and see what is really happening as Rome burns and barbarians with AK-47s are in gun battles twenty miles from the gates of Phoenix.”
But as scary as J.T. is, his pal in this endeavor, Harry Hughes, might be scarier. Hughes really, really doesn’t like Mexicans, citing approvingly on his blog an article that says: “Mexican illegal aliens are revolting. And they know it. It is their purpose to disrupt us, interfere with us and give us diseases that we haven’t had in this country for 100 years.” In September 2007, in a thread on the racist forum Stormfront.org that was devoted to getting Mexicans to move out of a neighborhood, Hughes provided the following observation: “Back where I’m from they would just get into a hunting accident but that might not work here as there are too many of them.”
Hughes’ anger, by his own account, sometimes spills over into action. In July 2007, Hughes posted under his moniker “vandal52900” to Stormfront that he had shot a Mexican family’s dog. “The dog with the bullet belonged to Mexicans. I legally shot it, but was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon because I yelled at the Mexicans.” Hughes said the charges were later dropped and “the Mexicans [sic] home mysteriously burned down.” In a September 2007 post that was later removed from Stormfront, Hughes wrote: “Does getting arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for shouting at a latrino neighbor count? I was unarmed at the time and the cop was a spic.”…”
Is it possible, The Feathered Bastard asked, that J. T. Ready is an informant working for the FBI? (Yea, The Pink Flamingo wondered about that. No one could be so stupid as to go on patrol with a Neo-Nazi group, could they?)
“…Warrior4god13 called Ready a “fraud” and a “bonehead,” and posited an intriguing “Bermuda Triangle” theory for what would happen to those who followed Ready into the desert.
“He’s a federal agent,” Warrior4god13 warned of Ready. “You’re going to go in there with your militia. They’re going to size you up — 20 members, 16 ARs, blah, blah, blah. And maybe even take you in, and you’ll never be heard from again.”… I decided to give Ready a call and ask him about the FBI accusation. Ready had already seen both videos, and had been asked about them by others….”That kind of talk is dangerous,” he told me. “Because, you know what, I [could] get shot in the head by some Aryan Brotherhood, or, you know, somebody all [high] on meth or something who thinks I’m some kind of undercover informant.”…”
The Feathered Bastard wrote:
“…These new photos were posted July 26, just a few days after the Arizona Highway Patrol Association issued a press release warning vigilante groups to “stay out of the desert.” Spokeswoman Stacey Dillon said that Ready’s was one of the groups AHPA, which represents Arizona Department of Public Safety officers, was addressing. The release did not mention J.T. Ready by name or reference neo-Nazis. But it did include a photo from Ready’s first public desert patrol in the Vekol Valley, showing gear emblazoned with the word “police” on it. “These desert vigilantes are armed, and in some cases, attempting to portray themselves as law enforcement,” reads the statement.
“Officers will arrest these individuals if there is evidence of impersonation of a police officer or related crimes, like hate crimes,” Sgt. Jimmy Chavez, AHPA president, said in the release. “Police associations, like AHPA, want these individuals prosecuted to the highest degree of the law.”
The statement points out that, “According to Arizona Revised Statutes, impersonating an officer is a felony and ld result in jail time.” Via text message, Ready told me that the “police” gear “belongs to a cop friend of mine.” He added, “I’m not that stupid anyway.” In another text, he said of Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, “I let Sheriff Baboon play cop on TV for me instead. Safer that way.” In our back and forth, I wondered about Ready’s recent statements to Phoenix journalist Terry Greene Sterling to the effect that he was leaving the National Socialist Movement, the most prominent neo-Nazi organization in America. …”
From the ADL – then compare it to VDare!
This is just way much fun. VDare, that lovely little multi-cultural pub (if you are white) thinks there is nothing wrong with Ready, that this is all “brown herring” to make the anti-immigration movement look bad. Geeez… ya think?
One of the little follow the bouncing balls you need to know is that VDare and John Tanton’s bunch are working together to promote their own brand of anti-Hispanic multi-culturalism.
From the liberal Couterpunch:
To be fair, it is not just Arizona where white supremacists are trolling for illegals.
The left is waking up to the reality of these yahoos. Too bad the right has their eyes closed and their ears pluged. They’re probably also holding their nose, so they won’t be forced to absorb the foul odor eminating from these people.
“…The militia is an outgrowth of border watch groups that have been part of the immigration debate in Arizona. Patrols in the Arizona desert by Minutemen organizations brought national attention to illegal immigration in 2004 and 2005.
Such groups continue to operate in Arizona, and law enforcement officials generally don’t take issue with them as long as they don’t take matters into their own hands.
Border Patrol spokesman Omar Candelaria said the agency appreciates the extra eyes and ears but they would prefer actual law enforcement be left to professionals.
Former Minutemen leader Al Garza recently created the Patriot’s Coalition, which uses scouts and search-and-rescue teams to alert the Border Patrol and provide first aid to illegal immigrants.
Depending on the availability of volunteers and the scouts’ evidence of border crossers, patrols can vary from several times a week to once a month, Garza said. The operation is about 500 people, and includes a neighborhood watch program, legislative advisers and a horseback patrol, he said.
Technology, rather than manpower, is the focus of Glenn Spencer’s American Border Patrol. The group is based at his ranch near the border. The five-man operation flies three small airplanes to ensure that the Border Patrol is present and visible along the international line.
Spencer also uses Internet-controlled cameras and works with a group called Border Invasion Pics, which posts photos of people they suspect are crossing illegally.
“Sitting out there with a bunch of volunteers looking for people is generally a tremendous waste of people and time,” Spencer said. “And it’s also dangerous.”…”
The very real problem is people like Russell Pearce, who, contrary to VDare’s lies, has been associated with J. T. Ready for ages.
