Neo-Nazi Kicked Out of His Mommy’s House for Choosing Extremist Group Over His Family

Neo-Nazi Kicked Out of His Mommy’s House for Choosing Extremist Group Over His Family

Jared Michael Boyce, a neo-Nazi looking to provoke violence at an Idaho pride event, was evicted from his mother’s house after he was forced to choose between his family and the extremist group Patriot Front.

Boyce, 27, was taken into custody along with thirty other men before a possible violent attack could take place. The men were forced out of the back of the U-Haul truck where they were equipped with riot gear, a smoke grenade, shields, and plans for an attack.

In an interview with The Daily Beast, Boyce’s mother Karen Amsden said her son has struggled since his father came out as gay and left the family years ago. By going public, she hopes her son’s reputation will be damaged in the group.

“I would love to do whatever I can to out him so that he can’t be a part of it, and that they don’t want him to be a part of their group because his mom has loose lips and a big mouth and he’s never going to get away with anything.”

After Boyce’s arrest and subsequent release, he made it clear to his mother that he intended to remain a member of the neo-Nazi group Patriot Front. That’s when Amsden thought her son had to make a choice.

“I told him, ‘Well, then you can’t live here. You can choose between Patriot Front and your family,’” Amsden said. After telling his mother that he “can’t quit Patriot Front,” she ordered him to pack his stuff and leave her house.

In an effort to justify his actions to his mother, Boyce repeated the dangerous right-wing lie that LGBTQ+ people are grooming children.

“This is not who I raised. This is not the example that was set for him.”

That’s one “Karen” I can totally get behind.
