San Diego Minutemen Linked to White Supremacists

By David Holthouse on August 7, 2007 - 6:20 am, Posted in Intelligence Report, Nativist Extremist, White Supremacist

San Diego’s KPBS-FM, a National Public Radio affiliate, aired a story Aug. 2 detailing the links between the white supremacist activities of two high-profile supporters of the San Diego Minutemen, a nativist extremist group whose bellicose tactics and internal feuding are detailed in the current issue of the Intelligence Report.

The KPBS story revealed that San Diego Minutemen activist Ray Carney worked for 11 years as a computer expert for White Aryan Resistance, a neo-Nazi hate group lead by Tom Metzger. The story also steven1b.jpgquotes Intelligence Project Director Mark Potok describing the white supremacist tattoos and symbols featured on a MySpace page belonging to Steven Shine, another frequent participant in San Diego Minutemen protests.

Our favorite moment in the KPBS story has Shine being interviewed by the station’s reporter “while restraining a pit-bull at a north county canyon where local Minutemen rallied to evict migrants from outdoor camps.”

Shine took down his MySpace page shortly after the Intelligence Report story came out. But we captured it for our archives before it vanished.

    Thank you for some other magnificent post. Where else may anybody get that type of information in such a perfect way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I’m on the search for such information.

    You know, this Putito, can’t call him a real Puto because he ‘aint. Give him 90 minutes in Paradise, close to “Eden’, close to the Magi Origin, because they bore gifts. When the big Papa comes back he will ask these Putitos, ‘I heard you gunned me down’, to which they will answer, Lord, we never saw you sick or in need. Then, the big Papa will say, f__ck you, MF’ers, for I was crossing the border to help my family and you cut me down……
    Therefore,, go to hell, the place that has been prepared for you’s and.. Was it something I said?
    Let this ‘hunter’ go where they are harvesting psuedo-macho men.

    Do you have legal restraints to posting his defunct MySpace web page? I would think
    \that since he made it public and became a
    public figure, you would be in your free speech
    rights to post it.
