Patriot Front Members Were the Least Armed on Saturday, Planned to March in Line to Gay Pride Event — FBI Involved in Investigation of Misdemeanor Charges

On Saturday 31 members of the Patriot Front group, an alleged white supremacist group, were arrested in Idaho on the way to a protest.

They were traveling to a gay pride event with shields in the back of a Uhaul.

They had committed no violence but possibly could have — so they were arrested.

Kristinn Taylor reported on the Patriot Front arrests on Saturday.

Following the arrests a local police officer admitted that they knew about the planned protests because the Patriot Front was infiltrated by law enforcement.

Since the Patriot front group first appeared, The Gateway Pundit always suspected they had links to the feds. We were convinced they were infiltrated by the federal agents.

Here is video of the arrests for plotting to disrupt a gay pride event.

On Monday the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office released the names and pictures of the suspects who were arrested on Sunday.

The men look like they had haircuts for the rally.  They also look like they have jobs, unlike Antifa.

Now there are new details on the arrest of the men.

Apparently, the Patriot Front members were not in possession of any weapons. They had one smoke bomb between them. And they were planning to march to the gay pride rally and then march back.

For some reason, the FBI is involved as we expected.

Via The Federalist.

Each individual was charged with one misdemeanor, “conspiracy to commit riot,” based on the fact that the men involved were dressed in distinguished uniforms of khaki pants and blue t-shirts, plus some of them had shin guards and shields. There were no guns nor ammunition, but they did have some kind of document spelling out a plan to march in a line through a downtown park and agitate passersby.

The intent was to align in “a column forming on the outside of the park, proceeding inward, until barriers to approach are met,” according to The New York Times, and “once an appropriate amount of confrontational dynamic has been established the column will disengage and head to Sherman [Ave.].” In other words: Show up, irritate pedestrians, and then leave.

It’s certainly annoying and offensive, but since when did that require two press conferences from the police chief and fire-alarm coverage from The New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, and on and on?..

…Okay, so why was there a major arrest of an unaffiliated group that had nothing but a single smoke bomb? (Which, by the way, would have had minimal effect outdoors.)

White said his department is even working with the FBI on this matter involving misdemeanor charges. (Hmm… where have we seen that before?)

This is an important story. Not because “white nationalists” are involved. But because for curious reasons, the FBI is.

So the question still remains, how many feds were included in the group on Saturday?
