The ‘Order’ was a white nationalist group founded in September 1983 by Robert Jay Mathews. Their aim was to create an all white nation and to fight against the Jewish race that has gained a significant amount of control over the governments, media and banking of several Europeans nations, America, Canada and Australia which they use to enslave people of European descent.
They assassinated the liberal Jewish radio host Alan Berg on June 1984. Mathews wrote a letter declaring war on the Jewish occupied American government and describing the threats made against his family by government agents.
Frazier Glenn Miller Jr. was the former leader of the defunct North Carolina-based White Patriot Party (formerly known as the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan) and was arrested in 1987 for ‘weapons violations’. He agreed to testify against members of the ‘Order’ that have already been arrested by federal agents so that his sentence would be reduced. Ten members of The Order were tried and convicted due to his testimony.
Tom Martinez was a member of the ‘Order’ who was arrested on counterfeiting charges and who also gave information to federal agents regarding Robert Mathews and other members of the group; which lead to FBI agents attempting to capture Mathews and his associates. Martinez was sentenced to probation and was eventually paid $25,000 for his role in the investigation.
Another member, Bill Soderquist, was granted complete immunity for his cooperation with law enforcement.
The FBI agents located Mathews in a house at Whidbey Island on December 8 1984, Mathews refused to come out after an intense exchange of gunfire. The FBI then fired dozens of smoke grenades into the house in an attempt to force Mathews out, but were thwarted by his use of a gas mask. They then fired several M-79 Starburst flares inside the house, setting off a box of hand grenades and a stockpile of ammunition. Mathews continued to fire at agents as the house burned, but then suddenly stopped. After the wreckage had cooled enough to be searched, agents found the burned remains of 31 year old Mathews’ body.
Robert Mathews fought for his race and the future of his children, but lack of proper planning, along with operating in a large group (which resulted in some people becoming informants for the government, in return for a reduced prison sentence or clemency for the charges against them) resulted in his downfall and eventual death at the hands of FBI agents.
