The Fourth of July -- What Every Militia Unit Should Do

Recommended Posts

It's just about six weeks away. Start preparing now! 

 

The Fourth of July will be an ideal time for every militia unit to broaden its contact with other patriots in its community.

 

Start planning now to have a July 4th barbecue, with appropriate ceremony. Try to get other patriots -- local Republicans, Libertarians, Constitutionalists, above all veterans' organizations (American Legion, VFW, VVA) to co-sponsor it. Maybe even put the Democrats on the spot by inviting them.  Put out leaflets, and a press release, with all the sponsors' names.  Sell tickets at cost -- perhaps offer them free to serving military and LEO.

 

Even if you have to go it alone, do the publicity -- a press release, leaflets posted in laundromats or given out -- because this will allow people who are curious about the militia to come and check you out, without committing themselves.  And a face-to-face encounter with people the hostile press portray as scary bogeymen is the best way to counter Leftist propaganda.

 

But planning has to start now: getting a place, estimating numbers and getting ready to buy and prepare food, and above all, doing the publicity.  This will be a good test of an organized militia group, and valuable experience will be gained if your group has never done anything like this before.  Don't forget security, if you've got hostiles in the neighborhood. (Have a couple of people surreptitiously videoing everything and maybe a couple of more ready to video any incident.)

 

Take photographs -- announce this in advance so anyone who doesn't want their face in the paper can turn away -- and write a short piece on your successful July 4th; send it, with a couple of photographs, to all local media outlets.

 

The more a local militia unit is seen to be part of the community, the more 'friends' it has out there, the more secure it will be against legal attacks. And of course it's a good way to recruit new members.

 

But planning for this has to start now.

As for Arizona, I believe there are several active units there.

However, it might be better for them to try to have a stall at the main celebrations in the cities, or at least leaflet the crowd.

Assuming, of course, that the Chinese Communist Virus thing hasn't cancelled events.

You can tell we have diluted our patriotism to oblivion with the date of July the 4th otherwise known to free men and women as Independence day is spoken of in Milita groups as July 4th rather than its correct name.

sad.

You know, I had never thought of that. 

The 'Fourth of July'  is the way we said it sixty years ago in Texas.

But "Independence Day" might be better and might be a good minor

campaign issue for the militia movement, which needs to emphasize its

positive, 'Make America Great Again' aspect more, and its scary bearded

men with guilty smiles and AR15s a bit less.   (But it's a shame that Hollywood

has associated the phrase 'Independence Day' to a movie, albeit one with a good plot.)
