Former NSM Member Samuel Johnson Indicted On Federal Weapons Charges In Minnesota, Faces A Minimum 15 Years In Prison

Update June 6th: Samuel Johnson pleads guilty to being a felon in possession of firearms. He faces a minimum of 15 years in prison.

Update May 18th: Joseph Thomas now accused of planning a firebomb attack on the Mexican Consulate in St. Paul, MN, but has not been charged with any additional crimes. Updated post HERE.

Samuel Johnson
Two White civil rights activists in Minnesota have been indicted by the federal government on weapons and drug charges, and are accused of hatching a plan to attack the government, minorities. Naturally, an undercover agent is involved. Joseph Thomas of Mendota Heights and Samuel Johnson of Austin are named in the federal indictment. Johnson is a former member of the National Socialist Movement and was the leader of its Southeast Minnesota unit in 2009; he subsequently left the NSM to form his own White civil rights advocacy group called the Aryan Liberation Movement.

Because Johnson lives in Austin, the Rochester (MN) Post-Bulletin and KAAL Channel 6 offer more details about him. Johnson is being charged with four counts of being an armed career criminal in possession of a firearm and one count of being an armed career criminal in possession of ammunition. The indictment alleges Johnson possessed a 12-gauge shotgun, a .22-caliber handgun, a .39-caliber semi-automatic assault rifle, a .45-caliber handgun and a .22-caliber rifle in 2010. In addition, he's accused of possessing a shotgun, a .39-caliber semi-automatic assault rifle and a .22-caliber revolver in 2011. Johnson also allegedly possessed 60 rounds of .39-caliber ammunition on November 3rd, 2010. If found guilty, Johnson faces at least 15 years in prison and at most a life sentence. Update May 9th: Johnson has pleaded not guilty to five felony charges for an armed career criminal in possession of firearms and ammunition, and his trial is set for July 16th.

According to the Mendota Heights Patch, Joseph Thomas is charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, two counts of distribution of five or more grams of methamphetamine, and one count of distribution of 50 or more grams of methamphetamine. The U.S. Attorney’s Office alleges that Thomas distributed five or more grams of meth on both February 15th and February 29th, 2012, and more than 50 grams of meth on March 13th. Thomas' trial begins on June 25th, and he faces a potential maximum penalty of life in prison.

Yet even though Joseph Thomas is also a convicted felon under a weapons ban, and despite the fact that he's accused of selling an undercover FBI agent several weapons, including a semi-automatic handgun, a pistol-grip shotgun, a laser sight and hundreds of rounds of ammunition in May 2011, and gave the undercover FBI agent more ammunition, a handgun, another laser sight, and a ballistic vest in June 2011, he has NOT been charged with any weapons violations. Now if both Thomas and Johnson were felons under a weapons ban, and both were in possession of weapons, why is Johnson the only one charged with weapons possession? The Austin Herald hints that Joseph Thomas' real objective was to gain control of the local area’s marijuana, cocaine and meth connections, and that he was merely using White nationalism as protective cover for criminal activity.

The big problem for Samuel Johnson is that because he's a convicted felon, he is prohibited under federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition. Johnson's criminal history includes a number of convictions in Mower County: Attempted simple robbery in 2000; simple robbery in 2007; possession of a short-barreled shotgun and sale of a simulated controlled substance, also in 2007. In addition, Johnson was convicted for felony theft in 1999 in Hennepin County. All of these convictions occurred before he joined the NSM. Yet despite his criminal past, Johnson engaged in legal, constructive activism during his time with the NSM. He engaged in public protest against illegal immigration in Minnesota, and on July 11th, 2009, showed up at the city council meeting and asked the mayor and city council members to sign a petition demanding the local sheriff enter into an agreement with federal authorities to enforce immigration laws. The officials rebuffed his request.

Federal Scenario: The Austin Herald offers the greatest detail. Essentially, Samuel Johnson was trying to build his NSM chapter in 2009 with legal activism. In 2010, he encountered Joseph Thomas, who started hosting the NSM meetings and proposed that the unit break off from the NSM and form the Aryan Liberation Movement. It is not known if Johnson was aware of Thomas' drug dealing activities. Unbeknownst to Johnson, Thomas had attracted attention from the FBI at that point; shortly thereafter, the FBI dispatched an undercover agent. The fact that Thomas is not being charged with weapons violations implies that the Feds may have turned Thomas against Johnson, and are showing leniency towards Thomas by charging him only with drug violations. Johnson may have wrecked his life by trusting the wrong person.

The Bottom Line: Zero tolerance for drugs in any white activist group. If someone you're working with even hints at drug involvement, drop him like a bad habit. Joseph Thomas looks like the real bad guy in this deal, but he's going to drag down Samuel Johnson in the process. Now I better understand why Harold Covington introduced General Order Number 10 into his Northwest Trilogy scenario.

Boy this NSM is like a frigging magnet for attracting scum that Hitler would have put into a concentration camp! Schoep the race-mixer himself is a convicted burglar/felon, that woman in Ky is an animal abuser, this creep is a meth dealer, Herrington is a Joy of Satan cultist, Fox in Indiana is a sex offender, Plussman was a kike informant, Holland was a fed, the list could go on forever... Does Schoep ever say NO to anyone who wants to join his comedy clusterf**k? Hell no! Instead he makes them all 'officers' instead. LMAO

These aren't "white civil rights activists", they're scum who poison White people with filth, like meth. When are we going to get away from this crazy thinking in the movement of - "Oh, they yell White-Power so they're one of us"? These kind of people ARE the ENEMY of our Aryan Folk! We need to totally DISCARD them, NOT - EMBRACE THEM - as Adolf Hitler spoke in the movie Triumph of the Will. Can anyone imagine the damage this kind of publicity does to our Cause with the masses of normal, decent White people? "AA", I believe that you are SINCERE in your WN commitment, but I also think that you do a dis-service by cutting far too many degenerates "slack" at times. IF one is RACE-MIXER - he's the ENEMY. IF one is a METH-DEALER - he's the ENEMY. No if's, an's or but's. In the future society that I hope we are BOTH striving for - there is ZERO TOLERANCE for such un-Aryan behavior! Sincerely, Rocky J Suhayda, Chairman 88!

More fine "publicity" for White Nationalism , brought to you by the NSM. I wish they'ed disappear!

Rocky -- One of the reasons I use the term "white civil rights activist" in this case is to perpetrate a solemn mockery upon anti-racists. They really get thrown off balance and riled up when we use the term to describe ourselves.

I don't foresee a favorable outcome for Samuel Johnson. It looks like he got in too deep.

Raise your hand if you're actually surprised by this......Nobody then?

I have to agree with Rocky. Doesnt matter how strongly pro-White some is, if they engage in disgusting behavior, like dope dealing, they're no good, period.

For too long WN orgs have had the "we'll take anyone, just to fill the ranks" policy. 11:39 has it right. Schoep had no standards when it came to personnel. Makes sense though, as he himself couldnt set any good example.

Sadly, other White leaders who I do respect and believe are good people, have also had the problem of being willing to accept nearly anyone. Consequently, it caused them considerable damage.

NSM is so done and gone. It can however, serve as a model for how NOT to do things.

Gosh, can anyone in the NSM go a week without scandal? 2008 NSM Presidential candidate was an FBI agent, NSM Commander caught race-mixing and being an adulterer, NSM Kentucky organizer on animal cruelty, and now another nut-job going to jail. What a bunch of losers.

Let's not forget the NSM is infiltrated by satanists.

I never understood why anyone would get into illegal issues once you become a member of any kind of pro white organization. We are always looked at more then any other and of course we know the government will do what the can to trap people.
I have had issues in the past as many have, once I decided to come into a very active role in this movement I cut out all non-sense.

We must lead by example and with great leadership
Activism , Dedication , and Personal Sacrifice

Advanced White Society is a legal White Social organization, Whites Civil Rights organization, a Whites Political organization and a proud White Separatist organization.

Jeff Schoep is having to turn to old WOMEN as his nsm 'unit organizers', because he's running out of decent men! They are too often dysfunctional freaks like these two, or heading into the prison system for various assorted offences against society. What imbiciles these two are, if your going to war against the system, you don't form some stupid club. I think they used too much meth themselves! WPWW

The fact that you have had "problems" in the past means absolutely nothing. The important thing is that you don't repeat those mistakes, and stay out of trouble now and forever. WPWW!

These guys are not white activists. They are traitors and got what they deserved. Several articles pointed to there friendship and orginized and attened rallies togather. Both were well aware of the drugs and guns.

These wackos should be shunned from all true whites. Talk about a bad representation for law-abiding whites. I hope they rot behind bars.

I agree! Why do we keep talking about this? Any other group of people would have a public relations nightmare with this. White people need to stop calling these people what they are not, activists.

What activities did they do to help the advancement of our race? NOTHING! They have given every white man woman and child who fights in this struggle a bad name.

Anyone knows that in this day in age we can't afford to break the law. This only gives the leftest media the ability to produce a negative spin on our beliefs.

A question for AA: Why do you post blog this post in such a positive light?

All I had to do was "google" Sam Johnson to find out that he is crazy.

This wanna-be skinhead was a former gangbanger who was formally arrested on charges of drugs and guns in 2007! So in 5 years time we're supposed to think that this man turned his life around, became the poster boy for the 14 words and was never going to get in trouble again?

What about his animal abuse charges in 2010? He was also best friends with a black guy the majority of his life, slept in the same bed as him and sold drugs to minors?

This is all from local residents that lived in this small town with Sam Johnson. Everybody knows everybody in a small town.

We cannot have these guys around and keep calling them "White civil rights activists"!

Can we call them what they really are? White trash.

Why is he only being charged for the weapons and not any of the other stuff? Trying to start an "army", looking for explosives, scouting for traing compounds?

If the FBI served this to a jury they had all of this info. to put em away for conspiricy charges to.

So his buddy sells the weapons and gets only charged for drugs and the other guy only gets charged for guns and neither gets booked for conspircy charges? Thats the feds favorite charge against pro-whites.

Sounds like they both are snitching about something or somebody.

Have to agree with the other posters. Losers who act like street rats.

I can't believe I'm saying this but this is the first time ever I agree with one of Rocky's post from the ANP.
