Invaders at the Richmond Rights Rally

| January 23, 2020

This is a follow-up to the gun rights conclave at Richmond, VA, last weekend.

Three days before the Richmond gun rights rally, three suspected white supremacists were arrested by the FBI. One of them is a reservist in the Canadian military who crossed the US-CAN border illegally and was met by the other two.

From the article:  FBI agents on Thursday arrested a former Canadian Armed Forces reservist and two other men who are linked to a violent white supremacist group and were believed to be heading to a pro-gun rally next week in Virginia’s capital.

The three men are members of The Base and were arrested on federal charges in a criminal complaint unsealed in Maryland, according to a Justice Department news release.

Tuesday’s complaint charges Canadian national Patrik Jordan Mathews, 27, and Brian Mark Lemley Jr., 33, of Elkton, Maryland, with transporting a firearm and ammunition with intent to commit a felony. William Garfield Bilbrough IV, 19, of Denton, Maryland, is charged with transporting and harboring aliens.

Court papers say Mathews illegally crossed the U.S. border near Minnesota in August and investigators allege Lemley and Bilbrough then drove from Maryland to Michigan to pick up Mathews before the three headed to Maryland in late August.

U.S. and Canadian authorities had been searching for Mathews after his truck was found in September near the border between the two countries. He was last seen by family members in Beausejour, northeast of Winnipeg, on Aug. 24, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The Canadian military’s intelligence unit was investigating Mathews for “possible racist extremist activities” for several months, according to the Canadian Department of National Defence.  – article

The three are linked to a violent white supremacist group that goes by the name of The Base. According to an AP report, they had hoped to start a civil war at the Richmond, VA, rally.

This kind of thing is exactly what the rest of us, who want our rights preserved, do not want. The path to keeping our rights lies in a cool-headed approach, and not in the disruptive violence spurred on and supported by such extremists as these.

    Trudeau needs to get his subjects in line.

    It looks to me like the system did what it was supposed to for a change and at the same time I’m sure that the Soros minion types are disappointed that they got caught because many in the left were looking forward to something going very wrong with that rally. I hope that those perps end up getting shower dates with Bubba, Thor, Julio and “Tiny Tyrone”!

    Trump needs to tweet Trudeau and tell him to keep his racists north of the border or we’re going to build a 2nd wall.

    I hate Winnipeg Nazis.

  4. Where are Blair of the Mounties and Sgt. preston when you needed them.

    Elkton just can’t seem to shake its past.I recall they used to burn crosses there back in the early 70s. I was stationed at AP then so it was kind of a local thing.

    They were just trying to deliver “Alaska Bob’s” dd214 for him. Since they couldn’t hook up with Boob and Kelly in the Badlands, they had planned to deliver it to the servers of TAH, located in a converted P3 disguised as a Russian Boomer submerged at the Little Creek Basin. Northam had made it a Black (face) Operation and it got crossed up with a robe in the hood. Bloomberg will post their bail.

    As I pointed out to Ex, “al Qaeda” translates to “the Base” even though these idiots don’t seem to muj terrorists.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      I am beginning to think that they and other groups like them are just the tip of the iceberg. I hope I’m wrong, but….

    The one thing all supremacists have in common, regardless of being white, black, brown, green, red, pink, or rainbow, is that all supremacists are against Free Market Capitalism, Small Gruberment, and the originalist interpretation of our constitutional rights and freedoms.
