During the Spring of 1987, Frazier Glenn Miller, Jr., declared war on the Unites States and petitioned others to join his cause. In a typewritten letter captioned Â“Dear White PatriotsÂ” and bearing his signature, Miller threatened the life of Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center and established a point system for the assassination of Dees and a host of federal officials. MillerÂ’s letter proclaimed Â“Let the blood of our enemies flood the streets, rivers, and fields of the nationÂ…we promise death to those who attack us or who attempt to place us in ZOGÂ’s dungeons.Â” ZOG is a reference to what Miller calls the Â“Zionist Occupation GovernmentÂ” and is a term commonly used by some groups to describe the federal government.
Miller was indicted in May 1987, for violating 18 USC 876, communicating a threat in the U.S. Mail. Miller pleaded guilty to avoid numerous other violations of federal law and was sentenced to 5 years in prison.
