The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.
I fear a hard right country coming from this, with anyone with a dissenting view shot on sight, anyone with a different religion shot on sight, anyone
with an "unapproved" skin color shot on sight, anyone with the wrong accent shot on sight. This is the right wing nuts in this nations ultamate
goal, it's not to return to the Constitution, its in my opinion the complete and total destruction of the union, and the death of anyone who crosses
them. It's my opinion that these "militas" as they call themselves are nothing of the sort, and as far as I am concerned are nothing better than
street gangs. They have no respect for the Constitution, have no will to find a peaceful solution, but want only the violent solution, this is why
they post so much disinformation. This is why no matter what good this government tries to do, they ignore it and claim that none of it happens.
Forgive me for not responding sooner, I had 2 very long days Monday and Tuesday. So I'll pick it up from this paragraph.
There are two very distinct differences at work here when saying militia. There are the organized groups such as the Missouri Militia, Michigan
Militia, Indiana Militia, Ohio Unorganized Militia--don't let that name fool you-- and the small splinter groups like the Hutaree and the Ohio
The first group are legitimate militia, the second group are essentially armed dumbasses. The difference being is the found guidelines of the group
and how they conduct themselves.
When the Federal Agents moved in on the Hutaree, there was no response from neither the Michigan Militia nor the Ohio Unorganized Militia. They had
information (debate whether it was obtained or given ahead of time continues) However, the Indiana Militia did not have such information until very
late in the game. 200 members were sent to find out and report on what was happening. Had they been detained, unable to make contact or unable to
fully determine what was happening... let's just say, things could have become "interesting for a few weeks".
That is the reality of world we live in. The question is not how many people are blissfully unaware, but how many would not function well if they knew
what was around them?
