Border militia founder reportedly shot dead in Arizona
Los Angeles Times ^ | May 3, 2012 | Dalina Castellanos

Posted on 05/03/2012 9:46:51 AM PDT by Uncle Slayton

Five people were shot to death, including a toddler, at a house in the Phoenix suburb of Gilbert on Wednesday, and a white supremacist border militiaman apparently was among them.

Authorities have not released the victims' identities, but the private militia group U.S. Border Guard reported that one of the dead was Jason "J.T." Ready, its founder. Members of the organization say they arm themselves and patrol the border with Mexico to try to combat "narco-terrorists." Ready also advocated putting a minefield on the border.

There were three or four different stories in the AZ Repug this morning. In two to them they mention that this guy was running for Sheriff in Pinal County but conveniently forget to say “Running as a Democrap”. All through out the articles they bash his connections to the GOP and his connection to recalled AZ Senate President Russell Pearce.

Bias in the Phoenix "News" - not at all. The AZ repug worked very hard to get rid of Pearce and continue to bash Sheriff Joe every chance they get.

Gilbert mass shooting: Horror in wake of vigilante's final act

Gilbert mass shooting: Members of extended family were targeted

Gilbert mass shooting: White supremacist J.T. Ready left tracks in politics (note only in this story does the "news" paper ack he was running as a Democrap Sheriff)

I honestly do not know how the GOP can win anywhere in a large urban area with this type of "news" coverage.

Interesting how the phrase was coined “White Supremacist” to neutralize one group and benefit others. That’s a typical divisive tact just as “conspiracy freak” is used by those who want to neutralize the opinions of others. In addition to white supremacist the libs, media, SPLC, ADL etc also aided in the creation of the term “hate crimes”, where crimes against certain ethnic groups are non-important and are mundane crimes and not hate crimes, but others get special attention.

Every time I see the use of “white supremacist” against those who oppose illegals it makes me ask why and what qualifies its use? They simply oppose those who are in our country illegally stealing our rights and treasury to the benefit of some politicians and businesses.

This sounds like an obvious “hate crime” against Jason J.T Ready.

From another article:

“An online biography of Ready includes several quotes in which he advocated restoring the country as a “White, European homeland,” called for militant action against Jews and advocated using “lawful, deadly force” when appropriate to protect the Mexican border.”

Although he's being reported as a Neo Nazi and White Supremist, this photo indicates otherwise:

In it, he's giving the Black Power salute in front of a sign honoring Malcolm X.

Seems more like a black supremicist, to me!

In this case, he really was. He was a thorn in the side of the minutemen. He would show up in Nazi uniforms and get in front of every camera he could.

Well, even the LA Times has this...Ready had unsuccessfully run for public office several times, usually as a Republican. This year, he was trying to run for Pinal County sheriff as a Democrat. The county Democratic Party disavowed him and urged members not to sign petitions to get him on the ballot.

The conservative/racist meme won't go far as he chose them as the ones that fit closest to his ideology. The distance is already being created as the last sentence indicates.

Too bad he's dead then. He had a career as a Federal Czar or a Third World Dictator (or President of the US) waiting for him.

And he wondered why he didn't make it as a Republican candidate.

Isn't it rather peculiar that other sites have the names of the dead listed when the article claims...Authorities have not released the victims' identities.

Neo-Nazi Murder-Suicide Suspect was Active in Arizona Anti-Illegal Immigration Politics FOX News Latino
Found dead alongside Ready were his girlfriend Lisa Mederos, 47, her daughter Amber Mederos, 22, Amber's boyfriend, Jim Hoitt, 24, an army veteran who served in Afghanistan, and Amber's daughter, Lilly, 16 months old, who was rushed to the hospital where she died.

And you probably won't. Something changed several months ago and KFYI took a noticeable turn to the left.

I quit listening after Barry Young and Michele Larson took to bashing Sheriff Joe on a daily basis.

In CA we were fighting against the assault weapon ban back in late 1980s. There was one of that ilk who showed up at every protest event from Sacramento to LA. He dressed in camo garb, looked like an idiot and the LSM would zero in on him like a flies to rotten meat. On the evening news, videos of him and his mumbling chit dominated.

One time we formed a human chain around him and were forcing him out of the crowd. The big phony started yelling, “help, help, they are threatening me.”

“Who did he murder?”

No one except for a 15 month old baby, the baby’s mommy, a US Army veteran and the baby’s grandmother.

Too much has become a media set-up to neutralize any movement against illegal immigration, and to call those who oppose it racists and supremacists. If this dude ran around in front of the media in a Nazi uniform then he was part of the hype and set-up. The SPLC and ADL are always there in the thick of it, just as your link in post 7 mentioned, wanting both our First and Second Amendments ended, our borders open and hate crimes available to be charged against all except a few special ones.

Police initially described the incident as a murder-suicide but later backed away from that characterization.

According to the article he may or may not be, a little too early to jump to conclusions.

Ok, it may have been the 15 month of baby that did all the shooting.

{He murdered} the 15 month old baby, the baby’s mommy, a US Army veteran and the baby’s grandmother.

Could I see the link to that?

Thanks

Ready’s girlfriend, 47-year-old Lisa Lynn Mederos, made a domestic-violence call to 911 asking the police to come help her on Wednesday. Seconds later, the operator heard gunshots and the line went dead.

When police arrived they found the bodies of Lisa Lynn Mederos and her daughter, 23-year-old Amber Nieve Mederos, inside the home. Dead outside were Ready and Amber’s boyfriend, 24-year-old Jim Franklin Hiott.

Amber’s 16-month-old daughter Lily was still alive inside but was pronounced dead soon after at a hospital.

Police say Ready killed them all before fatally turning the gun on himself, saying that all the evidence points to domestic violence.

Since they’ve apparently concluded their investigation, I wonder why the 911 call were not made public.

No mention that he's also a Leftist Occutard as well...

Doesn't fit with the "Right wing" meme they are trying to create around this piece of human offal.

Occupy Rallies, Tea Party Rallies, Border Militia, racist rants and murdering.

That’s diversity.
