A number of groups monitoring far rightwing paramilitary activity have warned in recent weeks that militia groups and individuals online are increasingly focusing their attentions on the presidential election. The chatter has been fueled by Trump’s provocative remarks casting doubt on the integrity of the voting process and calling on his supporters to turn up at polling places on election day.

Anxiety is also growing around the activities of white supremacist domestic terrorist groups, which federal agencies now recognize as an especially dangerous threat. Last week six people were charged in a plot to kidnap the governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer.

At the Red Pill gathering, the Oath Keeper president set his sights openly on election day. He said that on 3 November “we will have our men deployed outside the polling stations to make sure you are protected, especially in swing states”.

These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal bias.  They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor liberal causes. 

  • Overall, we rate The Guardian Left-Center biased based on story selection that moderately favors the left and Mixed for factual reporting due to numerous failed fact checks over the last 5 years.

    Militia groups have a bad rap in the mainstream press.  Some of it is deserved, but only because those that make the news usually do so for something that looks, at least on the surface, to be untoward.  One has to assume that the vast majority of local militia groups are composed of people of good hearts and good intent, and do what they do because they know that when the crap hits the fan, it will be people with good hearts and good intent that will save and reconstruct our society.  

    The mainstream media will label virtually any militia group a 'far rightwing paramilitary organization', regardless of their intent or purpose, primarily because these people recognize that there may be a time when armed defense of the social order becomes necessary.  This faux media also will throw in the 'white supremacist' label on these groups when there is no reason or evidence that it is true.
    Freedom and a submissive populace cannot co-exist.

    From the commie website.  They are planning to shutdown streets, cities, etc.


    ..."November 3rd.  After You Vote, Hit the Streets! 

    We can’t anticipate exactly how Trump and his enablers will try to attack democracy (although we have been gaming out a number of different scenarios), but we know that the stakes are too high to sit on the sidelines and wait. That’s why we’re making plans to be in the streets before the polls even close, ready to adapt and respond to whatever comes our way...."

    Its worse than that, any group deemed as being "patriotic" or composed of those described as "patriots" are being targeted by the DEMOCRAT partisan buzzards in the media.

    We plan to vote early...just in case some misguided, deranged farmer decides to park his tractor across the road. Hahahahaha.

    We do have a couple around here. I wonder where they came from?

    The ringleader is Brandon Caserta, an avowed ANTIFA member.  So, this group of so called militia is no more militia than ANTIFA or BLM.  Certainly not the typical American militia types.  These are not the type of men that will defend Southern people, their monuments, or symbols, and heritage.  These are your typical socialists anti-traditional anarchists that riot, burn, loot, and murder.
    What's next?

    You got that right. Protest in Albany over NY Safe(unsafe) Act of 2013. Dozens of Oathkeepers and not one Suggestion of or Act of Violence. -----------------Ray
