In an exercise of free speech and the right to bear arms, citizen militia members of the US Border Guard have joined the Occupy Phoenix protests fully armed with their AR-15’s.
We’re exercising our Second Amendment right so that everyone can have a First Amendment right. What we want to drive home today is that regardless of different beliefs, the moment we give up our Second Amendment right, that’s when tyrants can come in. That’s when the big boys with guns can sweep through and take anybody’s rights away.
So that’s why we’re standing out here today. That’s our primary focus.
The secondary focus is that there’s 60,000 dead in northern Mexico from guns that our government provided, from training to the Los Zetas from our government.
…We’re having Americans killed and having Mexicans killed.
Everybody out here is part of a squad that’s fully trained to use justified use of deadly force…no we’re not Cowboys out here causing a problem. It’s all peaceful.
And that’s what we want to demonstrate to other folks to – that you can do this peacefully and that the more people that do it, the more you exercise that First Amendment and add teeth to it with the Second Amendment, that’ll keep the government from ever taking away our First Amendment rights.
It should be noted that Paul Watson of Info Wars reports that JT and has organization may be related to the neo-Nazi party. Paul asks whether or not this will be used as further ammunition to discredit elements of the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street:
The group has been labeled “neo-nazis” by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is usually a demonization tactic, but the individual shown in the clip, “JT Ready” has attended neo-nazi rallies and is closely affiliated with the fringe National Socialist Party.
The group has also operated as a “Minutemen on steroids” outfit, organizing armed patrols of the US border with Mexico.
As we have previously highlighted, the fringe neo-nazi movement has been completely infiltrated by the FBI, right down to the level where an FBI informant actually got caught organizing a neo-nazi rally in Orlando back in 2007.
Is this a means of infiltrating the ‘Occupy’ movement, a minority fringe extremist group trying to attach itself to the protesters, or merely concerned citizens expressing their right to bear arms peaceably?
