Murder Suspects Spoke of Starting a Revolution Against the U.S. Government

A man and his nine year old daughter are the latest victims in the string of hate crimes that have changed the national debate. It will come as no surprise that this Hispanic family’s murderers were white supremacists with ties to the controversial “Minute Men”, vigilantes who “patrol” (get drunk) at the border looking for illegal immigrants to “detain” (rough up).

According to local law enforcement, three people posing as police officers forced their way into the home of Raul Flores in Arivaca, Arizona, about 10 miles from the Mexican border, on May 30. They shot and killed Flores and his nine-year-old daughter, and wounded Flores’ wife. The three, Shawna Forde, Jason Bush, and Albert Gaxiola, were arrested and charged last Thursday and Friday.

But here’s where it gets interesting: 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.

It sounds like Forde had started putting that plan into action. Bush, accused of being the triggerman in the killing, was also charged Friday in the 1997 murder of a sleeping Hispanic homeless man in Washington, reports the paper. According to law enforcement authorities in the state, Bush “has had long-standing ties to the Aryan Nations.” In 2003, they say, Bush moved to the Sandpoint area of northern Idaho, a historic center of white supremacist activity.

Guess that DHS report wasn’t so off after all, was it Rupert?

A Typical Arizona Racist

  1. It is sort of weird how since the Republicans have started crying about that report that there are a decent number of news stories about uncovered/carried out right-wing attacks/plots.

  2. Racists are just as backwards as the religious are.
