I'm really trying not to be petty. When someone hands you so much information that is contrary to the image they portray, you cannot ignore it. Also, you would not believe the amount of support I have received from calling this group out. To say that they are notorious does not do it justice. These guys are a biblical level shit storm event in the making, and they are taking good people and the name with them. No, gentle readers. That I cannot abide.
Chris Hill - All you had to do was come and make your case. At the very least, just drop the III% moniker and go back to doing whatever it is that you do. Your mouth got the better of you as your kind is wont to do. Fine by me. So some fellas did a little digging and found a few things out about the Georgia Security Force III% (GSF III%) as headed by Chris Hill. It took the sum total of a few minutes for someone to put the pieces together, Oh, Mr. Hill, you have been a very naughty little boy.
The Georgia III% security force is allied with Nazis.
Let me preface this by saying that I am in now way, shape, or form, against the display of the Confederate Flag. I spent a good part of my childhood studying the Civil War as a "living historian" and I have grown quite fond of looking at it and I relish its rich history. What I do not subscribe to is using the flag as an opportunity to recruit for Nazi or Kluxer assholes. Mr. Hill was one such asshole trying to ride the wave of support with his fellow assholes. Also, because I know I will have someone comment on it, no I do not react to the dog whistle of the eeeebil Klan hiding under my bed. Those guys and their pointy hats can have a national convention in a phone booth. It does not impress me in the slightest.
Just Don’t Call It “White Power” – “Protect the South,” Wesley Sitton, and the Mainstreaming of White SupremacyI'll make this quick because we have a lot of ground to cover. The event was started by Aryan Nations supporter and KKK member Greg Calhoun. The event found a lot of ground among the League of the South crowd and their peripheral white power members. They shake and bake with some other National Socialist baddies and voila, you have the
And here we have Chris Hill letting everyone know that the rally they had already planned with the Klan is now minus the Klan. Who is he thinking at the bottom? Mr. Sitton is a well known Nazi that was the main promoter for the event. Want to know more about Sitton? I would direct you to the article. It meanders around a history of either dealing directly with the neo-Nazi movement or playing footsie with them.
The bottom line was that the GSF III% was knowingly playing footsie with the Nazis. I am unaware od how much ongoing involvement that the GSF III% has with these organizations. If we are making the case of any port in the storm, or any chair in a bar fight, I'll give you another one; birds of a feather flock together. The III% does not flock with the fucking Nazis. Period.
Oh, but wait! There's more! I received this comment from a former member regarding "Operation Stone Mountain". It should be noted that the member left the group when they heard about what happened.
Not that anyone cares but since this is an open discussion here is my thoughts about III% SF. There is some great people with the militia, not all of them are bad. But as far as I'm concerned it only takes one bad apple to spoil the bunch and this group has more than one. The use of drugs and alcohol should not be allowed at any training event no matter the capacity of the event. Most who have ever dealt with them agree that there is FBI planted in the group. This group directly lead to the beating of an elderly man at their "Operation Stone Mountain." They were walking on a road to another area and encountered black panthers, after talking for a few minutes while walking and without any violence the black panthers asked [ the GSF III%] where the KKK was located for the rally, minutes after they pointed the black panthers in a direction the same group beat an elderly man and he was hospitalized. And while they did not directly cause it they indirectly lead a violent group which obviously had violent intentions in the direction of not just innocent civilians but also undercover law enforcement. This group is reckless.
The Fed connection
As chronicled in the above link and again in Exhibit D, Kessler was the founder of the GSF III%, and apparently a bought and paid for Fed stooge.
"On December 2, 2014, Chief Mark Kessler came “out of the closet” as an FBI informant, or infiltrator."
"Due to lack of support from Kessler, some of the CSF groups simply dissolved, while others restructured themselves, often with minor name changes. The Georgia CSF renamed itself the “Georgia Security Force” (GSF) and adopted the “Soldier’s Code of Conduct”, the backbone Army personnel conduct, for decades."
"Then, in an FBI-led operation that included FBI SWAT and the police departments of Rome, Floyd County, and Bartow County, raided 22 Tumlin Drive, Cartersville, Georgia and arrested Terry Eugene Peace, 45, Brian Edward Cannon, 36, and Cory Robertson Williamson, 28, charging them with receiving unlicensed explosive devices."
As reader Jon Dansie observed, "So, although Chris Hill may not have personally yet been charged with a felony, he was perfectly happy to associate with felons." and "The point is that the GSF was thoroughly compromised by an FBI plant, that GSF associates with felons, that it is everything that was reported that is wrong with groups claiming the III moniker without following the principles."
Circumstantial, you say? Hardly when you look at all of the evidence.
THERE WAS A FIREFIGHT!
And when I posted the original story on Facebook? Well, it was quite the education.
Here are some of the unsolicited comments from people in the area and in surrounding states. I am frankly amazed that this group has eluded me for so long given their poor standing within the community.
- When I moved to GA a year ago I was told to stay as far away from these kooks as possible. Just look at their youtube videos
- This may be the same guy I had a run in with a while back. He got really mad to the point of posting a YouTube video about me. He got real quiet and disappeared from the media platforms shortly afterwards. ... This particular little fellow is detached. IMO he was precisely the type that manipulative interests seek out to support and fanaticize for their own purpose of presenting a caricature face of the movement in the media. He lost a lot of support after his public outburst. Sometimes just sitting by and letting them embarrass themselves is the most effective method of disposal.
- There are a hell of a lot of people out there who have glommed onto the III% label who never heard of the founding principles. I know the Georgia Security Force people by reputation and they are a shit show.
Of course, certain members of the GSFIII% showed up to give me good what for. Chis included, but he didn't stick around too long and blocked me after just a few comments. Disappointing that he folded so quickly. A couple of his guys stayed on to carry his water but it was difficult to watch. I doubt any of them will learn anything until arraignment day. Oh well. We tried.
- Just FYI, regarding Chris Hill, I am a Georgia native. While I have not personally interacted with many militia members, I do know two other Georgians who personally knew him, and split from him. They're good guys. Hill, from what I hear, is the personification of the negative attributes you mentioned. IMO, you are right to pursue him and single him out. Just my two cents, take it for what it's worth.
The grand finale
And for the pièce de résistance? This large file dump from from another former member of the group tell a very long and winding tale of a megalomaniac and the group that supports him. In the spirit of full disclosure, I frankly did not have time today to pour though it all. From what I gathered it a tale of booze, drugs, loose women, super cool call signs, and bad decisions. Sounds like big fun, right? No, it is just sad.
If I said it once, I must've said it a thousand times: "People who don't like Chris Hill, simply don't know Chris Hill." Of course I couldn't have been more wrong.
I was and still am an active member of a national grass roots patriots group. I noticed a few of our members where also members of a FB group called Constitutional Security Force (CSF). When I asked around, I was told they were "a group of like minded patriots" who also did rifle training. There was also some whisper about them being a militia, although it was unconfirmed. I eventually joined the CSF FB group page to find out more. I recognized a few names of people I knew, but I still wanted to know more. I wanted to DO more as a freedom-loving American and was always looking for more opportunity to do so. I asked to meet with the group administrator, who I learned was a guy named Christopher (Chris) Hill. After little ado, I finally got that meeting.
The truth is, as I know him now, Chris Hill comes across as having neither honor nor integrity because he has neither honor nor integrity. Chris Hill comes across as lacking good character because he lacks good character. Chris Hill comes across as being hot headed AND egotistical because he IS hot headed and egotistical. The truth is, he ISNT the same person regardless of company! He is a true Dr Jeckyl & Mr Hyde.
For those presently in GSF, affiliated with, or considering joining GSF, I'm going to offer you the same advice I offered Zack when I quit: RUN!!!!
After some reflection, I see that I have hit absolute pay dirt with the GSF III%. I went in thinking that it was just an motley crew of attention whoring weekend warriors. Good guys at their core, but just maybe got a little carried away with hyperbole. What I found was something much darker than I could have imagined. I am left wondering what could possibly be left that has not been recorded.
The rot within the group is systematic. I hope that this serves as a lesson other groups out there that are struggling with the lunatic fringe. If it shows you anything, it should show you that for all of our faults, at least we are not doing this bad.
First things last, I would like to make a giant shout out of appreciation to Jon Danise and Adrian Rusch for providing me the links and some essential reference. I am incredibly grateful to all of the other incredible readers that commented to not only protect the foundations of the III% movement but make it grow. I am forever humbled and speechless at the outpouring of support.
