Arizona Patriot Movement anti-muslim activity


Black Aliss

Recommended Posts

Two women filmed themselves inside a mosque in Tempe, Arizona telling children that Muslims are "devil Satan worshippers," "pedophiles," and "rape goats."

Someone from the Southern Poverty Law Center tipped off the mosque. The women were arrested and charged with burglary — and now one has also been charged with child endangerment.

Me, I see this headline: Woman with ties to Patriot Movement AZ hit with child endangerment charges in mosque incident and immediately look for the mugshot, expecting to see Zsu Zsu.

Spoiler

A woman who brought her three children along with her to an ugly, hate-fueled incident at an Arizona mosque earlier this month has been hit with charges of child endangerment in addition to other charges.

Tahnee Gonzales, 32, was arrested on March 15 along with another woman, Elizabeth Dauenhauer, 51, on suspicion of burglary for taking items from the Islamic Community Center of Tempe, Arizona. Both women have ties to the group Patriot Movement AZ (PMAZ), which has engaged in anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant activism.

Gonzales posted video of the March 4 incident live to her Facebook page, showing that she and her three children, along with Dauenhauer, walked past “no trespassing” signs and into a gated area of the mosque and started removing items, including pamphlets and what they said were copies of the Quran.

Gonzales and Dauenhauer could be seen on the video encouraging the children to participate removing the items and using anti-Muslim slurs. Gonzales could also be seen at one point shouting slurs at a man who walked out of a building at the mosque. Police said after the arrests that even though Arizona has no standalone hate crimes charges, the women could face enhanced sentences if convicted because of the anti-Muslim nature of the incident.

On Thursday, March 22, a grand jury in Maricopa County, Arizona stuck Gonzales with six charges — two felonies and four misdemeanors — and Dauenhauer with a pair of felonies.

Both women were charged with third-degree burglary and aggravated criminal damage. But Gonzales also received a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct as well as three misdemeanor charges of child endangerment.

Gonzales and Dauenhauer had both been involved in the past year with events organized by Patriot Movement AZ. Among those events, Gonzales was present for at least one anti-Muslim rally organized by the group’s leader, Lesa Antone, in June 2017 in Phoenix.

Good Gravy, as my Texan mom used to say.  Those two women deserved to be arrested. Although they would probably spin it as being persecuted.

Hmmm Tempe. Wonder if they are part of Steve Anderson's church?

Pretty hard to spin this, since everything is on tape. I hope both those women do time, but they will likely get some kind of plea bargain and get probation.  Best case scenario?  One or both are already on probation, so straight to jail or the big house.

I saw the news report when this first happened and I immediately read to see if they were affiliated with PP's church!

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
