J.T. Ready on MTV: And No, It's Not a Rap Video

Ready tells MTV's Ryan Duffy all about chupacabras and the dreaded Arizona jackalope

What am I to make of a recent segment of MTV's Vice Guide To Everything, which featured a gushing portrait of Arizona's best known neo-Nazi J.T. Ready, as he hunts "narco-terrorists" in the Sonoran desert?

(You can watch the J.T. segment, here, beginning around seven minutes in.)

Aside from a few snarky comments from goofy pseudo-reporter Ryan Duffy, it's an entirely positive take on so-called "border militias."

Well, except for the fact they were not on the border, but supposedly near Stanfield, Arizona in Pinal County, which, last time I checked, is nowhere near the U.S.-Mexico border.

The doofus introducing the piece contrasts the "bad boys" who want to get out of some Jamaican prison to illegal aliens who want to get into the United States. All while talking about cow droppings. No, I'm not making this up.

Cut to Sand Land, where Duffy dutifully follows Ready and his fellow AR-15-enthusiasts around. Never once are Ready's white supremacist activities or affiliations discussed.

Much less his erstwhile ties to state Senate President-elect Russell Pearce, which must be far more embarrassing for J.T.

As you'll recall, as recently as November, Ready was marching through the streets of Phoenix with the swastika-totin' members of the National Socialist Movement.

I've never found Ready to be shy about his views. I'm sure, if asked, he would have discussed them in detail with Duffy.

So, I think it's worth a mention, even by the hard-nosed journos over at MTV. I mean, isn't a neo-Nazi leading patrols in the desert more interesting than some regular dude doing the same thing?

And I think we can all agree that Ready's no regular dude.

"We do kind of have a Wild West spirit out here," says J.T., as the camera cuts from some guy putting a cigar in his gob. "We have very liberal gun laws. You can own machine guns. You can legally own grenades. Tanks even. We got some terrorist coming at us with machine guns and ski masks in the middle of the desert, we're allowed to shoot them right in the face."

Way cool! Think Johnny Knoxville and the rest of the Jackass crew will wanna do their next movie there? Maybe the cast of Jersey Shore could make a visit to the Vekol Valley, and Snookie could hook up with J.T.

I asked the Arizona ADL's regional director Bill Straus if he'd seen the clip. This was his response:

"I did and can't believe MTV---or any reporting entity couldn't dig deep enough to find out who JT is (and it ain't Captain America!)."

Thing is, Bill, ol' buddy, ol' pal, it wouldn't surprise me a-tall if J.T. gets his own reality show one day. Such are the times.

Why, I'd even bet a little dinero that some of these TV crews pay Ready for his time, though I have no idea if that's this case with MTV's Vice.

Not that I'd blame Ready. Heck, it's the American way. Hope J.T. took them tenderfeets for every last quarter.

So does anyone out there know how we can actually contact the frat boys at MTV to tell them we don't appreciate their glorifying Neo-Nazi asswipes like Ready? I've searched their site and there seems to be no easy way to connect to them.

Stupid friggin Nazis! Started a war and killed 15 million people on the false belief that race matters.

Modern DNA technology has readily disproven the concept of race as a determinative factor in human physiology.

"Race" is a social construct - in other words, humans are TAUGHT to hate other ethinic or cultural groups by their parents and others, it is not inherent in the human condition.

There is no "master" race - only the Human Race. Don't give these Nazi's the print space man, ignore the ignorant friggin pussies.

Calling people "stupid" or "Nazis" or "ignorant" or "pussies" does not win an argument. It only shows how hate-filled and low brow you actually are. Ignoring race is ignoring blatant biological factors. This type of reaction could be expected from someone who uses third grade tactics to win their argument. Here is a video for you addressing the very racial fallacies you mention. I hope you can sit still long enough to watch it without soiling yourself.

Jesus, that was painfully slow, do the racists not know how to read any quicker than that?

So if there IS a difference in the races, what makes Whites so "superior"? Some nutjob's assertions from 80 years ago?

Even if these differences mattered, we have advanced technologically enough as a society to overcome shortcomings. Besides, throughout history there have been many advances made by non-Whites, so that little poorly produced slideshow proves nothing.

It's not because they're black douchebag, it's because a large part of the country is an underdeveloped desert that was picked clean by slave traders, conquered by countries that didn't actually want the land after they figured out what they had, and then exploited by companies like DeBeers when THEY figured out what they DID have there.

Besides, humanity's oldest roots go back there and the cradle of civilization is in the northern part of the continent.

At least you're not any smarter than you appear on TV. I was kinda afraid it was going to be a case of 'I'm not really an ignorant racist skinhead, but I play one on TV.' Really dodged the bullet on that one, I see...

Yeah, Africa is the cradle of civilization due to the advanced DNA of its inhabitants. Hahaha

Wow... Stanfield is the "border"(And they DO say that they are at the "Arizona-Mexico border on the on-screen graphic.)? Bullshit, Stanfield is a town as far from the border as Casa Grande and twice as far as Tucson. What a joke. And then they go on to say he's patrolling the desert with "missiles"? Jesus, MTV has been irrelevant for about 15-20 years now, and they are just giving us further evidence of that. What a ridiculous attempt at "journalism", and is that all the show is about is guns? Jamaica, guns, Arizona, guns, Pakistan, guns... Gets a little stale after awhile.

What's a "random" blog? Is that were you have a list of potential blogs, close your eyes and click? See, I came to this blog on purpose, so it's not "random", but if you have nothing better to do than pick blogs this way, you need to get out of the basement. Come on, you can do it! Remove the Fleshlight, wipe off the lube, pull up your pants, scoot the chair back, walk up the stairs, go outside and observe the sun for the first time in years!
