Anti-Muslim Militia Warns Of Refugee Invasion
An Idaho militia group is issuing dire warnings about Muslim refugees coming to America.
The III% Idaho group rallied Monday outside the statehouse in Boise, where about 100 anti-government activists, many wearing flak jackets and other armor, waved American flags and banners promoting their pro-gun militia group, reported Hatewatch.
“This isn’t some made-up crap we’re spewing out here, like they’re leading you to believe across the way,” shouted Brandon Curtiss, president of the right-wing group…
The III% movement was co-founded by pro-gun, anti-government activist Mike Vanderboegh, who promotes the idea that the Second Amendment allows unsatisfactory election results to be overturned by armed revolt.
The group’s name refers to the apocryphal belief that only 3 percent of colonists participated in the American Revolution, and group members take pains to describe themselves as a mainstream conservative group — although their rhetoric frequently overlapswith other far-right “patriot” groups and even white supremacist groups.
