Back in July there was a Tea Bagger shindig in Upper Senate Park
At this event was a band called POKERFACE who provided the sound system, security and entertainment.
Well, it appears that Pokerface also has a strong connection to the Hutaree militia who were just arrested for plotting a domestic terrorist attack on the local law enforcement.
Pokerface has more of a past with Hutaree than they’re letting on, going so far as to issue the following statement on their site:
“At the present time, Poker Face has no comment on the situation developing/unfolding with the Hutaree folks. But given the governments track record against we the free, it makes us suspect government motives first, not the Hutaree…We pray that cooler heads prevail, and we are talking about ALL sides.”
Pokerface is a band that specifically targets its message to survivalists, militia members and other members of the heavily armed conspiracy fringe.
Here’s a rundown of Pokerface’s “greatest hits”:
–Played a benefit for Willis Carto’s anti-semitic American Free Press at Rutgers in 2006
-Endorsed and performed at an event supporting Willis Carto’s Barnes Review
-Lead singer Paul was a frequent poster on neo-nazi forum VNNforum.com
-Holocaust denial, “jews did 9/11” nonsense, “jews were responsible for slavery” idiocy and other anti-semitic bullshit, all in their interview with Mathaba.
Deniers will claim it is unfair to lumping these people in with mainstream conservatives.
The facts are that the band Pokerface identifies themselves as conservative.
They support conservative ideologies.
They support conservative elected officials and they play at conservative events.
Hutaree identifies itself as conservative and christian supremacist.
Militias in general identify their political leanings as conservative.
