Read Time:6 Minute, 27 Second
Supposedly, a “vigilant citizen” noticed the uniformed Nazis climbing into the back of a U-Haul truck, and became suspicious and called local law enforcement. Amazingly, within minutes 3 different Law Enforcement Agencies responded, already dressed in riot and swat gear to pull over the U-Haul truck and unload the terrorist passengers before they could get anywhere near the LGBTQ Pride Event in a nearby park. I’m more than happy to believe that it was a “vigilant citizen” with keen powers of observation, but I think it makes much more sense to say that the group had been infiltrated, and a mole within the group had tipped off law enforcement well ahead of time, and was probably among those in the truck.
These are the faces of a group of 31 white supremacists accused of planning a violent riot during a pride parade. Instead, the uniformed suspected members of Patriot Front ended up bound by cable ties, and ordered onto their knees as they were forced into submission. They don’t look like Rhodes Scholars or like they have scholarships, or even day jobs to risk losing by participating in these sorts of shenanigans. Obviously they could take a few days off to travel states away to try to Fag-Bash an entire LGBTQ Pride Picnic. But they sure do look like Rough Trade. I hope the internet does it’s thing and DOX’s these losers. (See end of article for a list of their names.)
The 31 men were spotted packing into the back of U-Haul van by a resident of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, on Saturday afternoon. They tipped off police who later described them as being ‘like a little army’. LARPing is technically a form of drag (Just ask Rue Paul) And when we say they where “Packing into the back” of a U-Haul, we fully suspect that it was as homoerotic for them to be PACKED in a hot sweaty box in the dark, flesh pressing against flesh, billy-clubs crammed into peach-tree dishes. With the level of anti-LGBTQ aggression and hostility sky-rocketing, it becomes apparent that those committing these types of crimes are also part of Trumps “Stand up and Stand By” followers.
The band of homophobes sported matching uniforms, with shields, a smoke grenade, shin guards and an operations plan. It is believed they intended to commit mass violence at the Pride in the Park event. Police chief Lee White said: ‘It is clear to us based on the gear that the individuals had with them, the stuff they had in their possession, the U-Haul with them along with paperwork that was seized from them, that they came to riot downtown’ Looking at their pictures, we wonder what the total chromosome count is between all of them. From ‘Fragile X Syndrome’ to “Fragile White Male Syndrome” to “We Hate To Kick A Man When He’s Down Syndrome”, its not hard to guess that their parents were related long before they got married and had children.
It later emerged that only one of those arrested was from Idaho – in total 11 states were represented. Among those held by police was Mitchell F Wagner, 24, from Florissant Missouri, who was alleged to have defaced a mural of famous black Americans in St Louis. The group’s founder Thomas Ryan Rousseau, from Grapevine Texas, was also taken into custody on charges of conspiracy to riot. Patriot Front is a white supremacist group who believe their ancestors conquered the US and left it entirely to them. It is unclear yet if the fact that they traveled across state lines with the intent to commit crimes, hate crimes at that, will elevate their charges to a federal level. And we have not yet found out what their bonds are, chances are they will run like rats back to the states they came from and try to fight extradition. But it is the view of many Americans that with the escalation in violence and planned attacks against American citizens, starting with the “Unite The Right” rally that spawned the Proud Boys, and the Jan 6th riots at the Capitol Building, and now more mass shootings and attacks on LGBTQ people and events, including a “Story Time with a Drag Queen” even in a Berkley Library, it is obvious that the law enforcement and judicial system needs to punish these offenders severely and nip this in the bud. This was not a simple frat-boy prank, this was an act of terrorism. And it needs to be treated as such.
Jon Lewis, a George Washington University researcher who specialises in homegrown violent extremism, said the group’s tactics involves identifying local grievances to exploit, organising on platforms like the messaging app Telegram and ultimately showing up to events marching in neat columns, in blue- or white-collared-shirt uniforms, in a display of strength (Picture: Reuters / AP) While it is the plan of many young men to get PACKED in the REAR of a truck, most do not have to travel to another state to do it. But there is serious concern about how seriously the Law Enforcement are taking these things considering the FBIs repeated warnings that Police Departments across the country have been infiltrated by white supremacists.
Though Pride celebrations have long been picketed by counter-protesters citing religious objections, they have not historically been a major focus for armed extremist groups (Picture: AP) However an armed extremist group brutally attacking, repeatedly, LGBTQ gatherings, such as the New York Police Department routinely raiding and attacking the Stonewall Inn is one glaring example of a White Supremacist group attacking LGBTQ gatherings. In fact, thats what started the Pride Movement and the month of June is Pride Month to commemorate that month in1969 when Drag Queens started fighting back with every brick and stone they could find in the streets. Its why we have “Pride Month”.
Mr Lewis said anti-LGBTQ rhetoric has increasingly become a potent rallying cry in the far-right online ecosystem (Picture: AP) They always need their scapegoats. And with their shirts that read “Reclaim America”, I would think that some Native Americans might have some words to speak to that. Cowards, like the Ku Klux Klan hiding their faces behind hoods and masks, it shows the true courage of their convictions.
That set of grievances fits into their broader narratives and shows their ability to mobilise the same folks against ‘the enemy’ over and over and over again,’ he said (Picture: Reuters) Not sure how a bunch of white-entitled privileged rednecks could have many “grievances” considering that they have spent their entire lives at the top of the food chain. But Mr Bare Back Mounting in the photo above has not been kicked to the curb and had a cop kneeling on his neck until he suffocates and dies, and that speaks volumes for the emptiness of their complaints. The Pride party managed to pass without incidence. Mayor Jim Hammond said ‘hate and violence has no place’ in the city.
The full list of those arrested: Jared Boyce, Nathan Brenner, Colton Brown, Josiah Buster, Mishael Buster, Devin Center, Dylan Corio,, Winston Durham, Garret Garland, Branden Haney, Richard Jessop, James Julius Johnson, James Michael Johnson, Connor Moran, Kieran Morris, Lawrence Norman, Justin O’leary, Cameron Pruitt, Forrest Rankin, Thomas Rousseau, Conor Ryan, Spencer Simpson, Alexander Sisenstein, Derek Smith, Dakota Tabler, Steven Tucker, Wesley Van Horn, Mitchell Wagner, Nathaniel Whitfield, Graham Whitsom, and Robert Whitted (Picture: Reuters) Now I am sure that the internet sleuths will get to work further finding out who and what these creeps are and what else they have been up to. I don’t think we have heard the last of them.
