Extremism  
Jim and Joe Rizoli RULE Connections to Other Extremist Groups

Posted: November 9, 2009


Introduction
Xenophobia
Holocaust Denial and Anti-Semitism
Connections to Other Extremist Groups

CCFIILE leadership and members have affiliated themselves with and worked alongside other extremist groups that advance a xenophobic and racist message. Included among these groups are the white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens (CofCC) and the Minutemen, a loosely organized xenophobic movement

with chapters around the country. Some Minutemen chapters stage armed vigilante patrols of the Mexican-American border.

 

  • Support for armed vigilante patrols of the border, aimed at intimidating undocumented immigrants, dates back to CCFIILE's founding. Jeffrey Buck, one of the group's founders (no longer with the group), has been heavily involved with the Minuteman movement. When the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps (MCDC), a national group, announced expanded efforts to patrol the border in October 2005, Buck was named as the local contact for several states in the Northeast. In 2006, Buck became the MCDC's New England Regional Director.

  • In 2006, five CCFIILE members demonstrated in Framingham, Massachusetts, as part of a nationwide "Stop the Invasion" protest, orchestrated by the Minutemen.

  • According to an August 2007 post on the CofCC Web site, Jim Rizoli joined CofCC New England members "to do some filming at a local Illegal Day Labor site in Framingham."
