Leader of armed militia that held migrants arrested on weapons charges (abc)
Quote:
The leader of a militia operating along the southern border has been arrested by the FBI days after the armed group detained over 200 migrants who had just illegally crossed into New Mexico.

Larry Mitchell Hopkins, 69, of Flora Vista, New Mexico, was arrested Saturday on charges of being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition, the FBI Albuquerque office said.
Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

There is no room for paramilitary organizations in any free republic.
If one accepts some anonymous unaccountable militia, then one is also signaling acceptance of other similar outfits, like these guys:



The only difference is the uniform and the region of the country they call their area of concern.

Also see other "paramilitary" outfits:

MS-13, Crips, Bloods, Singing Frogs (Cantaranas) and Yakuza.

What was this guy thinking? Being in an armed militia and being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition just represent such stupidity, I think we need to lock him up just for being a dangerous nutcase. It's like being a convicted pedophile on the sex offender registry, and then opening a daycare!

He was protecting his country from the invasion his President had told him about. How could he do less? When there is an emergency at the border all armed men should rise up to stop it.

Trump's tweeted calls to arms are actually kind of useful: They get the true nutjobs arrested. They then usually confess all sorts of criminal activity to the police in an attempt to recruit those policemen to their cause. That doesn't work out so well for them! But they believe it could because they've been watching Fox and alt-Right websites for years.

Nothing like bringing your AR-15 to a place and shooting it up, looking for a basement that doesn't exist.

I hope that guy hasn't bred and passed-on his stupid gene. smile
