Ok, I have to say this and it may not make me popular with some folks out there who love their social media and see it as a way to find like minded people and to voice your opinions and I understand the need for sites like this one but it is a double edged sword.
First of all it might be wise to assume that most of you who are on daily are most likely being monitored by uber liberal, socialist trollers but also maybe F.B.I., N.S.A or D.H.S at some level. And although we all love the constitution, our country and freedom we may be seen as a third faction and nothing more than insurgents or separatists and yahoos who are out of control and need to be reigned in.
So why, I ask, do we show them our faces and weapons and troop movements without a care in the world of who is also seeing this. People, please stop using facebook, twitter, snapchat or whatever incel tools that are out there. Stop showing your faces, location, how and where you train, your guns, ammo and equipment. Rather do this in private if you must and know who you are dealing with. Go low tech.
Every militia unit of any size, which is more than a few friends who like to get together occasionally and dress up in soldiers' costumes ... will have an informant for the government in it, either now or in the future. The informant will be tasked to give an early warning of anything crazy being plannned -- not just a massacre but, say, an occupation. It's an unfortunate fact that the history of groups calling themselves 'the militia' justifies this, as does crazy stuff that some members of the militia say now.
The people running a militia unit can take some obvious elementary precautions -- it's not really necessary to show everyone's faces in a photo, for example, and any membership lists, digital or hardcopy, need special care. But the government is there to listen, so ... don't say anything crazy -- "We ought to arrest the governor and try him for treason!!!" and if you have a member who persists in saying such things, just throw them out. We're not a group therapy session. Everything must be subordinated to completing the mission.
Then there are non-government infiltrators. They may engage in provocateur work -- "Hey, if we're really serious ... I know where we can get some dynamite" -- or they may be there to collect names and addresses, for future doxxing. It may or may not be possible to weed out some of these people by proper background checks, and there ought to be centralized place to come for that. But probably some will get through.
Again, elementary security with membership lists -- people should use what we used to call 'Party names':your right first name but an acquired surname. No one needs to know where you work, etc. Membership lists held digitally should be encrypted, and all of them should be 'poisoned' with the names of real people who are not members. It won't fool the government but it might fool the people who are infiltrating on their private initiative.
And again, no crazy talk. If someone posts a scary image saying "We will not succeed until we hang the traitors in our midst" -- as someone did on this site a few weeks ago -- then they are doing the work of the enemy, whether they know it or not.
Finally ... the militia movement should be as open and public as possible. It should seek out opportunties to integrate with the local community, to help in disasters, to give free classes in first aid and firearms safety. Its members should be active in local politics and even run for office. It should be absolutely ferocious in insisting that we are an open, democratic, legal, Constitutional, peaceful group of citizens who are not anti-Government when government does what it is supposed to do and refrains from doing what it is not supposed to do.
And ... if we can get some good legal advice here ... we ought to be looking to bring a lawsuit against anyone who claims otherwise. This site ought to aim to produce a document that sums up the legal situation with respect to lawsuits.
The vile Southern Poverty Law Center had to pay a million and half dollars to a moderate Muslim group that the SPLC labelled a 'hate group'. They've got plenty of money left, and we should be aiming to get our share.
