(Likely an FBI agent-provocateur.)

Vanderboegh is unapologetic about his advocacy for armed resistance 
against what he views as a repressive government. He describes himself 
as a member of the Three Percent movement. It's a reference to those who 
fought in the American Revolution, a minority that Vanderboegh claims 
"never amounted to more than 3% of the colonists." On his website, 
Vanderboegh sums up the doctrine of the Three Percent: "We will not 
disarm. You cannot convince us. You cannot intimidate us. You can try to 
kill us, if you think you can. But remember, we'll shoot back."

Fiery rhetoric about resistance and revolution isn't new for 
Vanderboegh, though the origins of his activism may seem a bit 
incongruous. "I used to be a communist," he says. Vanderboegh, who is in 
his late 50s, claims he joined the anti-war movement in 1967, first with 
Students for a Democratic Society, then the Socialist Workers Party, and 
eventually the Maoist Progressive Labor Party.
