Neo-Nazi Sympathizer Leading Arizona Anti-Immigrant Patrols
Jason “J.T.” Ready has declared war on “narco-terrorists” and is leading a militia in Arizona, on the lookout for illegal immigrants.
But local law enforcement are nervous given that Ready’s group is heavily armed and identifies with the National Socialist Movement, an organization that believes only non-Jewish, white heterosexuals should be American citizens and that everyone who isn’t white should leave the country “peacefully or by force.”
“We’re not going to sit around and wait for the government anymore,” Ready said. “This is what our founding fathers did.”
Really? Our founding fathers wanted to keep out gays and Jews and pranced around Arizona to make sure darker colored people don’t come into the country?
He and his friends are outfitted with military fatigues, body armor and gas masks, and carry assault rifles. Ready takes offense at the term “neo-Nazi,” but admits he identifies with the National Socialist Movement.
“These are explicit Nazis,” said Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Project. “These are people who wear swastikas on their sleeves.”
Ready said he’s planning patrols throughout the summer.
“If they don’t want my people out there, then there’s an easy way to send us home: Secure the border,” he said. “We’ll put our guns back on the shelf, and that’ll be the end of that.”
I don’t know about you, but I’d rather be sitting in a lounge chair reading a book with an ice cold one in my hand (or sitting at the keyboard posting about people like Ready) than playing dress-me-up thinking I’m going to get all the bad guys. Have fun, Mr. Ready.
