What could retired ATF Agent Gene Rightmyer, seminar host, have said that literally caused Carolyn (last name withheld) to gasp on the second day of the International Undercover Agents “Homegrown Extremists” Seminar, held in Nashville, Tennessee August 16-20, 1999? She thought nothing could be worse than the shock that she heard the first day, when they were taught how to kill Christians and patriots with a simple prick of “ricin,” except she couldn’t bring herself to believe that Americans would ever do anything like that to fellow Americans. But now, Rightmyer is convincing her that this situation is becoming very serious indeed as he emphasized to the undercover agents present how it would be “helpful” if they could contribute to the arrest and conviction of Christians, patriots, and constitutionalists by establishing “bona fide conspiracies.” He then explained that a conspiracy is an illegal act, but that most prospective conspirators have not established that crucial element necessary to make the conspiracy an illegal act. He said that it would be helpful if the agents could move the parties toward creating that ‘NECESSARY ILLEGAL ACT’ (Emphasis mine).
Rightmyer seemed to really enjoy the conspiracy section of his workbook. He believes that the “extremists” are driven by religion and fueled by conspiracies.” He talked about the assassinations of Lincoln, Kennedy, M.L. King and UFO’s, etc. He explained the history of the “New World Order”, Freemasons, the Illuminati, Protocols of the Elders of Zion, etc. He talked about the anti-Christ Jewish bankers trying to control the world’s food supply, farmland, and labor using price controls. He discussed the Federal Reserve System, the stealing of the gold and silver, and the next step of embedded microchips that can only be gotten rid of by cutting off your arm, etc.
From there he moved to the religions of the extreme right, which he says are “Dominionist Christians, who have the only ticket to heaven…” The Christians break down into either fundamentalists or identity. He says that all right wing religions have their own militia and lots of money. Rightmyer continued by merging anti-abortion extremists with right-wingers. He believes that the most active extremists “taking up the banner of anti-abortion” are the invisible empire of KKK, WAR (White Aryan Resistance and the US Taxpayers Party – now the Constitution Party). Rightmyer names Neal Horsley of Georgia, Allison Hall Rayson of Tennessee, James Wickstrom of the Michigan Militia and Posse Comitatus, August Kries, Rev. Matthew Trewhella, Rev. W.N. Otwell, Texan Jack De Vault, Missourian Tom Dreste, Dale Paultz, Randall Terry, Rev. Michael Bray and David Koresh as engaged in training, in operations, reconnaissance and intelligence gathering. In the last 20 years, these people are responsible for 6 murders, 15 attempted murders, 200 bombings and arsons, 72 attempted arsons, 750 death and bomb threats and hundreds of acts of vandalism, intimidation, stalking and burglary.
On this second day, warming up to his subject, Rightmyer continued to define who the Homegrown extremists are and how to penetrate them. He said that the agents should attend pro-life rallies, Christian fundamentalist get-togethers, public meetings, tax and foreclosure auctions, gun shows and survivalist expos and internet news groups and chat rooms in order to meet these extremists. Of special interest should be those people who refuse to pay income tax or who collect light weapons and join militias. These are the ‘outlaws.’ If the agents are lucky, they might penetrate the underground. This is where the most dedicated and dangerous of the wingers are found.
He spent a great deal of time talking about the Sovereignty Movement. He said the most dangerous in this area is the Common Law Court effort and FIJA (Fully Informed Jury Association). In fact these are the most active and radical anti-government threat today. He said that the Sovereignty Movement recognizes only the Bible, the Magna Charta, Articles of Confederation, U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. He said that they believe that all other amendments to the Constitution are illegal. It is clear that the sponsors of this Seminar consider the ideology of these extremists and their documents to be racist and anti-semitic.
We have revealed the seminar host, one of the main instructors and those who attended. Now it is time to reveal who prepared the material for the four-day International Undercover Agents “Homegrown Extremists” Seminar for the undercover agents from all over America whose alphabet soup agencies such as the FBI, ATF, DEA, etc. paid their $500 fee for them to attend. The material was written and compiled by:
Southern Poverty Law Center
Montgomery, Alabama (www.splcenter.org), and
Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith
823 United Nations Plaza
New York, NY 10017 (www.adl.org).
