Skip to comments.White supremacists arrested on 'race war' charges in Florida
Posted on 05/08/2012 1:27:44 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Law enforcement officials in central Florida have been rounding up members of a white supremacist group who were allegedly training with weapons at a rural Osceola County compound. The training was reportedly in preparation for a coming "race war."
The group was also planning a "disturbance" at Orlando City Hall to recruit new members, according to court documents.
The arrests of the 10 alleged members of the neo-Nazi skinhead group American Front, or AF, came after a confidential informant infiltrated its Osceola County chapter and shared information about the group's plans with state investigators.
The arrests serve as one of numerous reminders of the efforts of law enforcement to monitor, and sometimes crack down on, the militia and hate groups whose numbers have ticked up since the election of President Obama.
In Alaska on Monday, a 12-member jury was selected in the trial of three militia members who are accused of planning to kill judges and police, according to the Anchorage Daily News. In Georgia on Tuesday, two militia members who had allegedly planned to attack government workers and buildings attended a pretrial hearing after two of their alleged conspirators agreed to cooperate with federal prosecutors, according to the Associated Press.
Seven of the arrests in Florida occurred over the weekend, with three more suspects arrested Monday, according to court documents and a statement from the office of Lawson Lamar, the state attorney based in Orlando.
Each of the seven, including the apparent ringleader, Marcus Faella, 41, faces state felony charges of attempting to shoot into an occupied dwelling, evidence of prejudice while committing a crime, and violation of a state "paramilitary training" statute....

He sure as Hades alluded to it in his reply hoss
Get your facts straight before you try to stir up what I'm sure you were hoping could lead to you calling someone anti Semite when in fact it looked like nothing of the sort. I too read Jewbacca's posts and wondered how these kids knew he was Jewish for sure till Jewbacca said in the reply to you this:
Nope, 100% Ashkenazi, beard, kippot, etc.
Powersboothfan did nothing wrong whatsoever...I too would like to know that if Jewbacca dresses traditional or has peyos etc does he frequently get slurred by strangers etc and what sorts of folks do that if it is common
I lived in Manhattan in the 80s and worked in the Diamond District and never saw anything like that there..and there were Lubavitch and other Orthodox all over the place ...we even have a few here in Nashville...one is a prominant gun rights advocate whom I actually know...
You want to find serious anti Jewishness...go to some black areas or to our Muslim communities and you have it in spades...ferreting around this forum is silly...arguably there is not a stronger pro Israel forum on the internet
You have been a real jerk for nothing and you owe Powers an apology.
Any freeper can review the exchange and see for themselves you were making something up hoping to smear someone for bigotry that was not there.
I absolutely detest when freepers here do that....and lord knows they do...there is nothing some here on a conservative forum like better than smearing someone as bigot or racist.
You take offense to my posts, I apologize, no stress or offense was meant.
No apology to you.
“If youd had a gun you could have shot the bastards and claimed you thought they were throwing acid on you.”
Rather difficult to fly commercial armed, alas.
I do have a concealed permit, valid in Texas. I will probably check my handgun, but I don’t know the procedure, and they keep it vague to try to get you in trouble, I think.
Yes, I am an Orthodox Jewish guy. Israeli native, although also a USA citizen.
Regarding “anti-semitic” events, it’s probably monthly I get something.
Anytime I ride the subway in the northeast in a non-Jewish area, I’ll get something from a bum, typically a black guy. Just crude comments trying to get a rise. Same stuff they do to women or you, but targeted at visible Jewishness. I don’t know if I count that.
Hairly eyeball from arab/ME street vendors, etc. any time they see me. Don’t count that. They probably do that to everyone.
Catcalls (”[insert insult] Jooooooooo”) in London, Paris. Typical stuff. I tend to wave and say “thank you, yes, I know!”
Actual, real, events have been 5-6 over a lifetime.
I got put in the hospital in Cambridge by a drunk white guys who decided to run up and smash the back of our heads we paving stones as we walked to shul one Friday night. This was, by far, the most serious.
My wife and I had a very unpleasant encounter with arabs on the Berkeley campus (she was there for medical conference), where we got pushed around out of the blue. I got a fat lip and I broke some teeth out of one guy.
The slurpee incident in Houston, which was unpleasant, but no big deal. Ruined my shirt and tie, but no one sat next to me on the Soutwest flight!
There are some others that I forget as I sit here, and lots of stupid crap in school that I don’t count.
On the bright/funny side, I got asked to have sex in an asian country so the woman (who was married and a professional, and no, not that kind of “professional”) could have smart children who would do well financially. She was very serious and rather insulted I wouldn’t sleep with her.
Not sure if that was “anti” semitic, but it was very odd.
I didn’t recognize her in that photo.
LOL. I’m a ‘She’. ;)
There’s so much Jew-hatred in this world. Being a Jew myself I couldn’t help but wonder.
I didn't ask for one for myself...you weren't addressing me
some of those are quite serious...I too have been attacked by blacks for being white
different matter but similar
i just deal with it...and that is something that did not happen till the 80s onwards...before that in the South blacks were not hostile to whites in general
aside from Muzzies, I think the worst modern Jew haters have to have been the Ustashi
if you really delve into how they treated the Serbs and Jews it is nothing short of about the worst mass behavior I have ever see
if it caused Himmler to ask them to tone it down then that sort of tells you it must have been bad
and that it involved some tacit approval from Catholic Church officals in the Ustashi against the Jews and Orthodox Serbs is about as ugly as Western Civilization gets
anyhow...the real world is hard...harder for some than others
sorry for that
I get frustrated with progressive Jews myself and know plenty and have argued with them for decades but then I try to balance that with the fact we have Mark Levin and it feels like my side is still ahead..lol
I worked a bit in Ramat Gan and politics never much came up except that I was obviously pro Israel but not like some Christians are for Rapture reasoning
I looked around and said I prefer to hang with folks who are civilized and whose culture is more like me...and in the Middle East...that is an easy call is it not?
I simply do not care unless it's violent as in one of the cases Jewbacca described.
I have lived the world over and often as a minority and come from the blackest state in the US
people tend to stick with their own kind...and I see no issue with that
be kind to others ..show respect until given a reason otherwise
the past 30 years have taught me in contrast to be wary of younger black men...and I am
if that is prejudice then so be it
ditto for Islam followers as a rule
I never resort to calling someone bigot or racist unless it's something really over the top.
But in this era...quite frequently simply the truth is racist because some people just can't handle it
Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society." The very fact that that so irritates people is proof of how right it is, because in many cases today the most offensive thing anybody can say is the truth about something. Political correctness was created to mask and hide the truth.....from Rush Limbaugh
I'm curious about this because people think the south is so racist and yet I very rarely see that down here. Very few Jewish people around these parts so I never see the antisemitic things that happen. Now we get plenty of Baptists vs Methodists vs Church of Christ wars going on :) they can be brutal don't ya know.
I’m OK I guess but I could use some sun;I’ve been in Florida since ‘93 and I’m still pale. I’m mostly German so I burn easily,thus I tend to avoid the sun.
Baptists vs Methodists vs Church of Christ? What? No Catholics? (I’m kidding)
I can see a free-for-all going on,LOL
There are many more Jews down in Tampa and even more in West Palm Beach. I’ve been to the latter city just once;I’ve been to Tampa a billion times. I’m a HUGE hockey fan and I go to see the Lightning whenever I can.
Funny. I almost didn't recognize her with clothes on...
That was not typical of Houston.
I won’t apologize for those POSs, they should do that for themselves.
Would love to have gotten their license and filed a complaint, though.
The stars of today aren’t as gorgeous and beautiful as the stars of yesterday.
The men can’t compare to the likes of Clark Gable,Cary Grant, Tyrone Power or Errol Flynn.
