Remember when South Dakota J.A.I.L. distanced itself from JAIL4Judges because of a perception that national group was a “bunch of wacko Californians“? It tried selling South Dakota J.A.I.L.er-in-Chief, Bill Stegmeier, as “a regular American, trying to do the right thing.” It also brought in Jake Hanes as “campaign media coordinator” and he is South Dakota J.A.I.L’s main contact person.
So now that J.A.I.L. claims to have rid itself of wackos, let’s take a look at the new face of J.A.I.L. Here is a picture that Jake Hanes uses for his identity on his MySpace website. The caption? “Rise Up!!”
Here’s another shot of Jake and his toy:
But Jake isn’t the only one appearing in his MySpace photos. Here’s Jake with J.A.I.L.er-in-Chief Stegmeier (on the left) dressed up as a couple outlaws:
On his MySpace site, Jake captioned the photo, “Who would follow these bozo’s [sic]?” That’s an excellent question considering that when Jake posted the picture at another MySpace user’s site he captioned it, “Gettin ready for the war.” Yep, just good ol’ regular Americans “trying to do the right thing” by rising up and getting ready for a domestic war.
At least the J.A.I.L.ers are consistent. After all, JAIL4Judges often pointed to the threat posed by the New World Order (“NWO”). And Stegmeier’s personal blog (since removed) asserted, among other things, that 9/11 was a government conspiracy.
One of the ideas behind MySpace is to create networks of like-minded individuals. So Jake has formed and is the leader of a MySpace group called the “Sioux Falls Sociopaths.” He is also a member of a group called “Survivalists Against the NWO.” His list of MySpace friends include:
- Erin(911 Truth) and Anais, both of whom have plenty to say about the plans of the Illuminati and NWO to control the world;
- Militia Dude, who talks about “UN Cremation [sic] trucks” operating in New Mexico and Montana and provides links to sites that give the “real truth” on the NWO and concentration camps in the U.S.;
- You’ll Never Take ME ALIVE NWO!, who tells us that not only was the U.S. government responsible for 9/11 but the “NWO along with the Illuminat, [sic] want to create a one world government with one currency, one religion, and one leader”; and,
- 9-11 was a Fraud!, which seems self-explanatory.
And I certainly can’t leave out another of Jake’s MySpace friends. That would be Amendment E. Poor Amendment E doesn’t seem to have a lot of MySpace friends. It does have a blog, although it “is set to private. This user must add you as a friend to see his/her blog.” Seems odd a group pushing accountability would hide its blog. Of course, while they want to abolish immunity for average citizens and public servants because it is so horrible, Section 20 of the amendment grants total immunity to J.A.I.L.’s “special grand jury” and those working with it.
It seems the new face of J.A.I.L. is no different than the old face. South Dakotans are being asked to throw out their system of government by extremists who see conspiracies lurking around every corner and who think its cute to pose as outlaws or revolutionaries with mock weapons and call themselves “sociopaths.” Distressingly, the latter description may be closer to the truth than we suspect.
Ignorant, restless desperadoes, without conscience or principles, have led a deluded multitude to follow their standard under pretense of grievances which have no existence but in their imaginations.
