Here’s the latest doomsday news from Arizona: A heavily armed neo-Nazi militia, led by a 37-year-old ex-Marine named Jason “J.T.” Ready, has declared war on “narco-terrorists” and begun patrolling the Mexican border. The group’s leader is an avowed Nazi, belonging to a party that believes all Jews and non-whites should leave the U.S.—either “peacefully or by force.” “We’re not going to sit around and wait for the government anymore,” Ready has said. “This is what our founding fathers did.” His group wears fatigues and body armor and carries assault rifles. Arizona’s agitated political climate and loose gun laws have tolerated the emergence of armed militia groups in recent years, but a sheriff in the county where Ready’s group is active—he patrols about 50 miles south of Phoenix—says he’d rather such groups stay away. “Especially those who espouse hatred and bigotry such as his,” the sheriff said. Officials from the Bureau of Land Management met the militia on their patrol and said they weren’t violating any laws.
