As for the herd mentality, one of the major distinctions of the Elks is their blind patriotism and unconditional love of the United States. Every meeting in an Elks lodge devotes time to honoring the flag, and Flag Day is an important Elks event. At the same time, it is forbidden to discuss politics at Elks meetings. To create an atmosphere of brotherhood among beer guzzling quadrupeds, religion and politics are officially kept out. Remember, good civic virtue means we can all agree to prostrate ourselves before armed serviceman and the flag!

Indeed. Supporting and upholding the constitution while professing a belief in God. Doing charitable works, Dinners for vets, Santas handing out presents, scholarships....nefarious bastards.

I used to clean a Elk's Lodge every Thursday
after Bingo night. They would drink like fish &
trash the place, but I didn't see anything ominous.

I was a member of the ELKs in the US. We would have the annual hoop shootout for the local communities. We would also collect food donations from local businesses to give to poor and needy families for Christmas. There would be at least 60 baskets go out to these families every Christmas. We worked with the Vets in the VA home, we had fund raisers amongst ourselves when it came to helping a family that may have lost everything due to a home fire,etc...

Prepare to defend yourselves Elks members of ATS.
With a 1 million + membership growing in the US alone, what is stopping these dastardly peoples?
