If you haven't seen J.T. Ready on the boob tube lately, you haven't been watching TV. Seems like the wannabe Ernst Roehm of the East Valley has been getting his moment in the media sun defending the views of the National Socialist Movement, even though he states in this interview with Fox 10 that he is not currently a member. Just a supporter. Weird, as I'm told his license plate now reads "NSM USA," though I haven't been able to confirm that with him.
Ready refers to NSM in the Fox 10 video as a "white civil rights organization," and calls the Holocaust the "Holohoax." That would be the "hoax" in which 6 million Jews perished. Thing about the Nazis is, they can't decide if it was a hoax, or if they dig the fact that the Jews were slaughtered by NSM's Nazi forebears. The NSMers would like for themselves to be portrayed as victims, so they try to deny the Holocaust, but their contempt and hatred of Jews oozes through their rhetoric with little filter. (The video may take a minute to load, but it's worth it.)
