FBI's Definition of a Militia Violent Extremist is YOU!

Leaked Documents Show FBI’s Definition of a Militia Violent Extremist is YOU!


An exert from an inane article by “the hill”. :roll_eyes:

The various groups engaged in the assault include white supremacists, white separatists, white nationalists, neo-Nazis, Christian nationalists, the Ku Klux Klan and an assortment of self-identified patriot organizations on the far-right wing of politics. Experts classify them as Islamophobic, anti-Semitic, homophobic, transphobic, misogynistic and xenophobic. For the sake of brevity, we can call them the “phobics.”

Many of the phobics are racist, have an appetite for violence and a desire for all of us to think and behave as they do. Because that can never happen in a healthy democracy where diversity is respected, some phobics seek out authoritarian-leaning leaders like former President Donald Trump and Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.). They reject political plurality, individual freedom of thought, separation of powers and democratic voting. They want a strong central authority to maintain these conditions. And by creating fear and chaos, they hope the rest of America will accept authoritarianism to get things under control.

Their reappearance in civil society began well before the Jan. 6 riot. In 2020, the Center for America Progress (CAP) warned of the emerging idea of an “embattled white majority which has to defend its power by any means necessary.”

Any means necessary includes violence. Southern Poverty Law Center data show nearly 490 extreme antigovernment groups were active in the United States in 2021, including 92 militias and 52 conspiracy groups. That year, there were 12,822 victims in 10,840 reported hate-crime incidents.

Although not all Republicans agree with phobics, the party as a whole has thus far stayed on the sidelines. Nevertheless, the magazine Wired points out the GOP has become “increasingly authoritarian and extreme in recent years, and it doesn’t seem likely to moderate that in the foreseeable future.”


:rofl::rofl::rofl: they must have been looking into a mirror because they just described themselves.


Yeah, there was a lot I didn’t like about Donald Trump, but in neither 2016 nor 2020 did I consider him the “authoritarian” candidate.

In MacDonald v Chicago, the US Supreme Court decision that struck down Chicago’s handgun ban, Justice Thomas described the KKK, and other white terror groups operating during Reconstruction as militias. He argued that the right to keep and bear arms was denied to blacks by state and local governments and operated to allow such militias to terrorize blacks.

While some may disagree, when the 2nd Amendment describes a “well regulated militia” it did not mean preserving a “well supplied militia” but included preserving peoples’ ability to defend themselves against organized thugs (aka militias)

Here’s what Justice Thomas said, BTW sans footnotes …

"Organized terrorism like that perpetuated by Tillman and his cohorts proliferated in the absence of federal enforcement of constitutional rights. MILITIAs such as the Ku Klux Klan, the Knights of the White Camellia, the White Brotherhood, the Pale Faces, and the ’76 Association spread terror among blacks and white Republicans by breaking up Republican meetings, threatening political leaders, and whipping black militiamen. These groups raped, murdered, lynched, and robbed as a means of intimidating, and instilling pervasive fear in, those whom they despised. …

In my view, the record makes plain that the Framers of the Privileges or Immunities Clause and the ratifying-era public understood—just as the Framers of the Second Amendment did—that the right to keep and bear arms was essential to the preservation of liberty. The record makes equally plain that they deemed this right necessary to include in the minimum baseline of federal rights that the Privileges or Immunities Clause established in the wake of the War over slavery."

Some of us are already on “The List”. I found out about it when my brother got arrested. When we met with the detective he actually said, “Well he’s a blue collar transient worker (he worked construction and spent a lot of time on the road) and he’s a veteran”. Yep being a construction worker and a veteran made him a suspect.


What about travelling blues musicians?


If you’re a gun owner who’s not a leftist :man_shrugging:t4:
