Trump's Friends

ALBUQUERQUE — The F.B.I. on Saturday arrested the leader of a right-wing militia that was detaining migrant families at gunpoint near the border in southern New Mexico, as the group faced a torrent of criticism for its tactics.

Hector Balderas, New Mexico’s attorney general, said federal agents had arrested the leader, [Felonius Asswipe], who had been operating under the alias [Asswipe-2]. Mr. Balderas said in a statement that [Asswipe] was arrested on charges of firearms possession by a felon.
This Asswipe probably thought that his violations of Federal firearms laws would be overlooked, because he was doing Trump's Work.
In November, [Asswipe] gave an interview on a conspiracy-heavy YouTube channel, the host of which wore a gasmask and used a voice distorter. During the interview, [Asswipe] claimed Trump listened to his internet radio show and asked him for information on Muslim immigration. [Asswipe] claimed his tie with the president originated from a chance meetup in a Las Vegas casino. “That’s how I knew him,” he said. “And Trump and I have kept in touch ever since.”
This particular group of asswipes was in pretty deep.
The suspected leader of a New Mexico militia group allegedly boasted of plans to assassinate former President Barack Obama, the FBI has said.

[Asswipe], and his group United [Conglomeration of Asswipes], also plotted to target Hillary Clinton and billionaire George Soros, according to a tip received by the FBI.

It is unclear when he allegedly made these comments, which were included in court papers released this week.
They, no doubt, believe that the cops would overlook their crimes because the cops would be sympathetic to what they were doing. They're no different from the gay-bashers who have been shocked that they were arrested for assaulting queers.

They are vigilantes, just a few microns away from the lynch mobs of old. I have not a shred of doubt that, if those asswipes thought that they could get away with it, that they'd be lynching brown people.

They are evil.

Reminds me of the other asswipes that thought they could take over federal lands by gunpoint, or the asswipes that wanted federal lands to graze their livestock on without having to pay a usage fee. And kinda like some other right wingers that actually think they can “win” another civil war. I would venture to guess the commonality among these groups is that they watch too much “Gubminnt is bad” stories on Fox News.


B said...

And you connect this (asshole) to Trump HOW?

bmq215 said...

B, did you read the article? The arrested leader claimed to be in touch with Trump about their activities.

Is it true? I doubt it. But friendship doesn't have to be a two way street (hence all the "friends of" campaigns) and Comrade's title is therefore perfectly correct.

Dark Avenger said...

B, it would help if you read the article linked to by CM before commenting. Just a suggestion.

Comrade Misfit said...

B, I added some more material to make the claimed link to your guy a bit clearer.

dinthebeast said...

So the Union Pacific railroad had told rest of them to clear out from their camp by Friday. One way you can connect this with Fergus is that these kind of fringies are always around, but cases like this one get attention because they don't even try to hide what they're doing because they don't believe they need to.

What they were doing, by the way, was kidnapping.

B said...

He's not "My Guy" He was the best of the bad choices.

And "Claimed" he has met Trump? No proof? Just some asswipe's claim that he is close to the throne is enough to make you believe that the "border militia" is Trumps? As you said to me, you are better than that.

Dark Avenger said...

How dare you call a real patriot like that a liar, B.

w3ski said...

He is probably hoping for a tRump pardon.

Just an all-American Antifada Guy, B.

After Hopkins’ arrest, the FBI said in an affidavit that in 2017 they’d learned Hopkins “allegedly made the statement that the United Constitutional Patriots were training to assassinate George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama, because of these individuals’ support of Antifa.”


B said...

So yer gonna blame Barry and Chucky and Nancy everytime some whackjob wants to assassinate Donald? Gonna claim that that person is their friend too?


Or are there double standards for Democrats?

CenterPuke88 said...

Let’s see:

1) Donnie says there is a crisis at the border.

2) Donnie says he wants all these people kept out until their cases are fully adjudicated.

3) Donnie says bad people are sneaking over the border.

4) People with MAGA hats and who proclaim to be doing Donnie’s work patrol the border with guns and kidnap people.

5) Arrested leader of one of said group declares he is a friend of Donnie.

Generally speaking, that’s a friend of Donnie, unless Donnie disavows said person(s)...which, strangely enough, he hasn’t done. Why so defensive about “your guy”, B. And before you trot out the best of bad choices routine, you voted FOR him, that makes him “your guy”.

You’ve accepted his infidelity, crude comments, tossed off offensive comments, denigrating allies, cuddling up to enemies, accepting help from the Russians, jailing children ripped away from their parents, arguing that he doesn’t have to bring those parents and children back together, deporting U.S. citizens, deporting family members of our troops (and in some cases, their surviving spouses who are caring for the children of deceased spouses), putting friends and donors into high level positions and attempted obstruction of justice, why so defensive over this?

B said...

"Claim". Not acknowledged by Donnie as a friend....never met with or had 2 way communication with Trump. You draw a tenuous conclusion there for your argument.

I notice you failed to answer the question...

And I voted , as you pointed out, *Against* Hillary Clinton and her socialist policies and promises. Not FOR Donnie. Yes, he was the best of the bad choices. You can blame Trump on the Dems as much as the Republican party. They both ran the worst candidates against him. Neither gave us anyone to vote FOR.

So when people shoot Republicans at baseball games, why don't you blame the above mentioned Dems? They were doing as suggested....

As for the rest,: He has gained allies, and denigrated those who were using the US as a shield and or patsy and generally NOT friends or allies except in Diplo-Speak.
Removing children from criminal invaders...well, they made their choices and reaped the rewards. And, you conveniently forget that that program started under Barry....Deporting folks who are not here legally isn't something I can find to be a bad thing, no matter to whom they might be related. As for the rest....again, double standards. Barry and Billy did the same with appointments, but YOU let THAT pass...

I'm out, you get the last word.

Dark Avenger said...

Your wordiness derails your argument, B. I would suggest taking a break, while our semicircular canals recover from your jaunt past logic and facts.

CenterPuke88 said...

No B., I simply pointed out that Donnie has not denied the claims of this gentleman. As for not answering...I answered your failure at denial of “friendship” with a point, I’m not hostage to your questioning. I’m defending the original post, not litigating some associated matter.

CenterPuke88 said...

Could be worse, three Trump supporters were sentenced to 41 years in jail for sexually assaulting nine horses, a cow, a goat and an unspecified number of dogs. How do we know they were Donnie supporters, they did it after leaving a Trump Rally.

Dark Avenger said...

Don’t remember any Democrats saying some of the stuff Trump said at his rallies, B.

“I’d like to punch him in the face.”
“Maybe he should’ve been roughed up.”
“You know, part of the problem, and part of the reason it takes so long, is nobody wants to hurt each other anymore, right? And they’re being politically correct the way they take them out, so it takes a little bit longer. And honestly, protesters, they realize it. They realize that there are no consequences to protesting anymore. There used to be consequences, there are none anymore.”
“I don’t know if I’ll do the fighting myself or if other people will”
Didn’t know Trump was a lawyer:
“If you do (hurt him), I’ll defend you in court, don’t worry about it”
“I’ll beat the crap out of you”
“Knock the crap out of him, would you? I promise you, I will pay your legal fees”

And of course Sarah Saunders was truthful, as befits a believer in Christ:

“The president in no way, form, or fashion has ever promoted or encouraged violence.”
