    Re: Explosive Growth of Militias

    My thoughts are that it doesn't bother me at all, as long as they don't start a war.

    Anybody have a link to the list that identifies all these different groups.....??
    A militia, according to some standards, might be a couple of Bubbas in a pick-up truck.

    They're pretty well known for employing the use of fear tactics. Last time I check on their site, if it's the same one I'm thinking of, they had the rebel flag listed in the hate symbol pics.

    Yeah, they aren't exactly neutral observers.

    Elelction is coming up. Got to drum up the fear vote on the left. Get out the vote or the militias are coming to get you. Santorum is going to take over by military coup and take your birth control away.

    The left doesnt fear them, they're quite aware that they're toast if they start anything.

    Re: Explosive Growth of Militias

    Just a bunch of pissed off people with guns as far as I'm concerned. Hopefully, we won't see a spike in bigotry based crimes, but something tells me that this won't be much more of a problem than it was. The SPLC has a tendency to paint in broad strokes with this kind of thing. A lot of groups that don't advocate violence or bigotry get tossed into the mix, like the Oath Keepers. A sensationalist media is all too happy to let start a new, stupid panic.

    Well, that's an idiotic response, as it doesn't relate to anything I said.
