|On right is Billy Sessions in Portland last year. The Hiwaymen frequently travel|
the country in order to do street combat. They've attacked a Little Rock trans
rally and terrorized mosques in recent months.
In an October 3rd live stream on Facebook and YouTube, hate group leader Billy Sessions (his real name is Billy Helton) of the Hiwaymen revealed he was paid a visit by the Federal Bureau of Investigation over his statements calling for a new American Civil War.
The Hiwaymen, co-founded by James Del Brock and Billy Sessions (real name Billy Helton), first got attention in 2017 at the white supremacist Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville where neo-Nazi James Fields, Jr. drove his car into a crowd of counter-protesters killing Heather Heyer.
They attempted to get in with larger white nationalist and patriot groups, but beyond a few minor Confederate groups and Patriot Prayer, no one wanted to deal with the Hiwaymen.
Sessions is considered a pariah inside the Patriot Movement. Most other groups think of him as a silly clown, who only embarrasses their causes and is more concerned about getting publicity for himself than anything.
In turn, Sessions frequently attacks groups like the Oath Keepers and III Percenters, who have cold shouldered him._____________________________________________
