This Isn’t Their America – The New(est) Militias

16 Nov

Watch this video and you will get an idea of where all the Faux News postuing, Tea Bagging Parties, and right wing “Socialist” hysteria is leading –

Now – it isn’t a stretch to see these guys similarity to the Serbian Militia’s ethnic cleansing – or to America’s first Anti-Government Militia – the Ku Klux Klan or KKK. The KKK also was started to preserve “Their America” after the Civil War.  And while “Their America” included terrorist acts to keep black folks in their place, they also lynched a number of white criminals in their role to “keep the peace” and “restore order”.

Doesn’t sound much different than the Militias today.

One thing we agree on though. If a draconian gun control is put in place in this country – the only people who would have guns would be these Bozos. Looking back at the history of these sorts of organizations…

That should worry any Minority person.

    Do you actually foresee an armed conflict? I don’t know, but we need fewer guns out there, not more. A dangerous invention it is, particularly in the hands of any old fool. This is not what the constitution intended when it speaks of a well-regulated militia.

    I have long contended it was one of many mistakes by the so-called founding fathers, along with the three-fifths BS. A weapon of mass destruction when viewed collectively, individual gun ownership has proven to be too deadly, and as a consequence should be considered obsolete.

      During the founding father’s time there were very few guns in the hands of the populace. They were expensive, and principally in the hands of wealthy landowners who served local Militia duty. Most frontiersmen had them, because living on the frontier was dangerous. However the most popular weapon was a shotgun, due to expense. Kentucky and Pennsylvania rifles were just too expensive.

      Indeed, a goodly number of George Washington’s troops only had shotguns.

      Weapons of that period were very slow firing, so it wasn’t possible to commit the sort of mass killing made possible by moder automatic and semi-automatic firearms – so the idea that guns could do what they do today, never occured to them. The most deadly weapon, and weapon which accounted for the most casualties of the day was actually the Bayonet.

    I share Brother Brown’s skepticism. Settling political disputes through armed insurrection is untenable. This isn’t the 1800’s.

    I’m also as cautious regarding the availability of firearms. Just today two VA college students were shot(one died), because a “hunter” (claimed to have) mistaken them for deer.

      Saw that news article. One of the reasons I don’t go hunting anymore in the woods is there are a lot of stupid people, and some stupid people on alcohol out in the woods.
