Militias on the March
Many of you may have heard of the bizarre case of Shawna Forde, an active anti-immigration activist who was arrested with two of her cohorts the other day for murdering a hispanic drug dealer and his nine year old daughter. Now, courtesy of Talking Points Memo, more information has emerged:
"Forde's brother, Merrill Metzger, has told the Arizona Daily Star that Forde had been talking recently about "starting a revolution against the United States government," and had said she planned to recruit members of the Aryan Nations as part of a plan to rob drug cartels. And, reports the paper, investigators believe the attack was intended to be the first in a series of such crimes, with the goal of funding MAD and another venture. What was that venture? According to Metzger: "She was telling me that they were going to start some sort of militia...."
Here we go, folks. How many more do you think are out there, who may be just slightly less stupid than Shawna Forde?
