My Experience: Destination America and Hidden in America Episode “American Militias”

AMERICAN MILITIAS investigates the codes, culture and conflicts of the growing number of heavily-armed militia prowling America's backwoods. Militias have a long lineage in America, dating back past from the Wild West to the American Revolution. Today, numbers of militia are booming, up 700 percent in just five years. But what exactly are they preparing for? Press release

I have received many positive comments from viewers regarding American Militias. The only thing some of my friends didn't like was Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center. To many, the SPLC is a group that points fingers and promotes bias towards people they don't like. Some would even call it a “hate group”. This organization attaches defamatory labels to people they have never met and know very little about.

These well paid “bias promoters” try to encourage others to dislike certain types of people for a variety of reasons, some being quite vague. Baptist churches have even fallen under their radar. I honestly believe the SPLC is adamantly against the First Amendment, portions of the Bill of Rights, along with many other parts of the U.S. Constitution. Sadly, they exploit the law and people to enrich themselves, while asserting their agenda.

I also couldn't help, but notice some of our detractors could only make negative “ad hominem” comments. I did a little research and provided a few links for your own research. From what I discovered, it appears somebody's casting stones in a glass house.

Southern California State Militia

SoCal Militia, a Michigan unit and a lone sad sack from AZ who is also a "National Socialist" were portrayed, complete with Swastika-festooned comic opera flag. They spent a lot of time on the Nazi, showing him walking through the desert futilely, looking for drug smugglers and illegal immigrants, accompanied by vicious dogs and an outstanding candidate for a fat farm. Full post

Show spoiler... I have not seen American Militia's, yet, but somebody (Tony Burke, the leader of the SoCal Militia) with little or no consideration of others has re-posted portions of the show and probably without the expressed permission of Destination America or its' affiliates. Video Fool's Paradise

One of Tony Burke's comrades was quite critical and intolerant of heavy people. From the looks of the video he posted, there are several obese people in his group. Apparently, his heavy people are just fine and our heavy people are completely unacceptable. Doesn't that make you wonder who the real bigots are? Bear in mind, more than 50% of the U.S. population carries a few or even more than a few extra pounds.

We, in the National Socialist Movement welcome and utilize people of all ages and fitness categories in our border operations. Grandmothers, petite women and the disabled have been known to patrol with us. Ironic that this so called militia group brags about their "brown faces," but criticizes heavy people in other groups. This is not Hollywood and everyone doesn't look like Stallone or Schwarzenegger. It's "We the people." 

Although we are an exclusively Caucasian White Civil Rights organization and political group, blacks, Native Americans and Jews have also patrolled alongside our members. Contrary to the SPLC, the National Socialist Movement is NOT a hate group. We don't use the term "Nazi" in describing ourselves, either. Actually, we National Socialists find it offensive and refer to it as the "other n-word." Our organization only promotes lawful activities. NSM

George Miller: Profile "They gave most air time to that NAZI guy, who is not at all representative of militias." That's almost amusing as the National Socialist Movement is not a militia. Just because we have an armed unit, that doesn't exactly make us a militia. Although some of you will have trouble understanding this, N.S.M. members are patriots. Take a look at George's pictures. Freikorps

Wait a minute! The “People's Republic of California” is a state that banned high capacity magazines and prohibits the open carry of firearms. More Technically, a person purchasing a firearm at the gun store could be arrested carrying it out to their car. How can they legally have a worthwhile militia in the first place? Why did they let such a horrible thing happen to their state, anyway? Shame on them! I'm surprised Diane Feinstein and her Communist goons haven't sent all of these guys off to the "gulag" or “re-education camps.”

Are they doing anything to control the gang problem or deter crime? It does not appear so. How many lives have they saved? Zero? What are they really doing? Why are they not patrolling the California border with Mexico? The National Socialist Movement engages in many humanitarian and public service activities. SDTPU Dozens of people are alive (although deported) because of us. We also help clean up the desert and recover stolen vehicles (some loaded with marijuana). Some units have adopted highways.

Section 311 of US Code Title 10, entitled, "Militia: composition and classes" in its entirety:

(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.

Once again, I'd like to thank the film crew that came to Arizona all the way from Australia. They picked the worst time of year to do this shoot. Extreme heat, rain and swarms of insects didn't deter them. I would also like to thank the producers for their thoughtfulness and courtesy. I was more than happy to share my time with them and making this production possible. Shoot AAR

“I'm a 9th generation American and patriot (1737). My forefathers served in the Pennsylvania Militia. On June 27, 1781, they were called upon to perform a tour of duty. I'm still protecting freedom and securing the border, 275 years later.” --Harry L Hughes III

Border related violence and lawlessness continues as the feckless politicians in Washington D.C. try to suppress the truth

Myself and a few volunteers spent another weekend in the Vekol Valley area of the Sonoran Desert National Monument south of Interstate 8. We established a campsite and patrolled outward. In the wash adjacent to our camp, we discovered several sets of footprints and a few 1 gal. water jugs. We came across no other sign, so we resumed camp activities that included a little target shooting and recreation.

Somewhere to our south, foreign nationals are pouring over the border with illegal drugs. Published on Dec 9, 2012: Two trail cameras record smugglers carrying drugs north the border in Arizona Video

Although our Saturday night was quiet, relaxing and uneventful, that wasn't the case a couple of miles "over the hill" from our location...

Deputy discovers vehicle loaded with ammo following pursuit

Pinal County, AZ -- On Saturday, December 8, 2012 at 9:17 P.M., a Pinal County Sheriff’s Office Deputy was patrolling the Interstate-8 corridor. The deputy observed a vehicle traveling southbound on Stanfield Road from Highway 84 leaving the town of Stanfield. Full Story Photos

As the Numbers Surge

Illegal Activity Surging since August. From August 1 to September 23, 2012, more than 1,000 incidents occurred in 915 "hot spots" in a small area stretching from the central Arizona border to about 70 miles north to the Interstate 8 east-west highway, crossing north over the Tohono O'odham Indian Reservation to the Barry Goldwater Firing Range and into the Sonoran Desert National Monument. Full Story PDF

Important: While the Border Patrol is not apprehending in the traditionally heavily trafficked area of Casa Grande and Gila Bend about 80 miles north of the border at east-west corridor I-8, sometimes they are tracking as many as seven groups at a time in this area via air support. Primarily working this corridor on the ground to fill in the gap left by the Border Patrol is the "West Desert Task Force". The Bureau of Land Management leads often, and operations include representatives from the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area force, the Arizona Department of Public Safety, and Pinal and Maricopa County sheriff's offices.

Most often these operations occur at night. When operating, the task force often is picking up two incidents per day just between Gila Bend and Casa Grande. This could mean there are actually up to six incidents a night, if the conventional estimate is correct that law enforcement catches just one-third of actual activity in the vicinity of the border.

US Border Patrol agent shoots man near Gila Bend

The agents reportedly came across two armed men about 14 miles southwest of Gila Bend and at least one of the agents fired, hitting one of the armed men. They say the other man was an illegal immigrant from Mexico and was arrested. Agents reported finding a handgun and assault rifle at the scene. Full Story

Border Patrol investigating deadly shooting

"At 12:25 p.m. MST Sunday, a Border Patrol agent on patrol approximately 12 miles northwest of the Sasabe, Ariz., port of entry encountered an unknown number of individuals who had crossed the border illegally. During the encounter, the agent discharged his service issued weapon, resulting in the death of one of the individuals. Agents apprehended six other individuals. CBP is fully cooperating with tribal and FBI investigators." Full Story

With two Border Patrol vs. Mexican shootings in less than a week, it appears that either the smugglers are becoming more bold and aggressive or the Border Patrol is getting tired of armed foreign nationals getting a free pass from the political leaders that profit from the drug and human smuggling trade. Of course, corruption is a plague on all levels. Recently, a U.S. Border Patrol agent was arrested after authorities say he used his patrol vehicle to smuggle drugs while on duty in southwest Arizona, according to a federal complaint. His name is Aaron Anaya. More

AP poll: Majority harbor prejudice against blacks

Most Americans expressed anti-Hispanic sentiments, too. In an AP survey done in 2011, 52 percent of non-Hispanic whites expressed anti-Hispanic attitudes. That figure rose to 57 percent in the implicit test. The survey on Hispanics had no past data for comparison. Full Story

With 57% of Mexicans on welfare and 2/3 of the few available jobs being handed to "immigrants" by heartless corporations looking out for the bottom dollar, it's completely understandable that people are going to have negative sentiments towards Hispanics.

Why do so many gun control advocates secretly own and carry their own guns?
