The Resister

Death of the old militia

Recommended Posts

A well regulated NRA being necessary to the security of a free State....  That didn't work.  Let me try again.

 

A well regulated survivalist group being necessary to the security of free State...  Sorry that didn't work either.

 

During the 1980s scores of people were concerned about the threat of nuclear war while others were afraid of more racial / culturally related issues.  In 1979 Creason Kearney had released his book Nuclear War Survival Skills and around that time Firepower magazine was available in most places magazines were sold.  Firepower magazine would have articles on how to convert two semi-automatics to fully automatic in each issue.  It was legal back in those days.

 

Survivalist groups popped up all over America.  By the 1990s Bruce Clayton had written a best selling book Life After Doomsday.  Here in Georgia, the racial type groups were enjoying the political atmosphere when we thought there was a credible danger to the United States.  In one rally they attracted, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, a crowd of at least 8,000 but no more than 10,000 attendees  (and I'm talking about people who went there to listen to speakers, not counter-protest.)  Unfortunately I cannot recall the year off the top of my head.  

 

The late 1980s had racial groups really whizzing people off.  They would go in thinking that the white racial groups were going to do something positive about the direction of America only to find they were a part of the problem.  In 1987, as best as I can determine, the first substantial militia was started (and is still semi-active.)  Those early militia groups were composed of survivalists (the precursors to today's preppers) along with preachers that were fighting for religious Liberty, gun Rights advocates, tax protesters, groups fighting against the NEW WORLD ORDER / One World Government, and so many other groups my memory couldn't recall a third of them.

 

Public meetings were held and the militia ended up opening their doors so that all the issues could be discussed publicly.  It wasn't long before people were getting into the militia just in case any of the people representing America's best interests were attacked.  The John Birch Society got involved as did people fighting eminent domain abuse, immigration issues, gun control, National ID, the surveillance society, and the issuance of licenses and permits when people had a Right to do whatever they were doing.  Preachers who were aware that there is a constant assault on the family unit by the government got concerned.  The Right to Life activists joined and supported the militia.  

 

Starting in the late 1990s the militia reached its apex.  Charlatan Heston had become the head of the NRA and he was for gun control.  Y2K had people on edge.  The government was trying to float National ID and, at one point, polls had Americans rejecting National ID by about 87 percent (IIRC.)  But, despite its many successes,  around 2002 the militia began to rapidly die.  I remember laughing some of it off.  Before Y2k the Washington Times interviewed me for a big front page story about Y2K.  I told them everybody would go to bed on the last day of December and life would go on after midnight.  It was at that point I got to see the militia die within a couple of years.  I saw four things that ended the popularity of civilian militias:

 

1)  Y2K did not provide everyone the opportunity to see actual turmoil in this country and interest in survivalism, the militia, etc. dropped like a rock.  We used to see survival shows alone draw 1200 vendors at a single show -  ditto for gun shows

 

2)   9 / 11 provided a pretext for the American people to reverse their thinking about the surveillance society.  All of a sudden, the right - of all people, began advocating in favor of the National ID / REAL ID Act (and later E Verify) after being duped by the left.  The right became the biggest purveyors of the POLICE STATE, being even more radical than the left had.  The left wisely exited this portion of the takeover of America plan, allowing the right to do their dirty work for them

 

3)  The government backed neo-nazis in helping the anti-immigrant effort to begin raiding the civilian militias and making them ineffective on all fronts, save of obsessing over immigration.  On that single issue, Americans made peace with the balance of the groups and organizations over-throwing America

 

4)  The government then used "mop up" crews to infiltrate the militia and set up the most vulnerable and naive for sting and entrapment operations.  By the early 2000s the militia was dead.  

 

Having lived it from the front lines, I could share more if there is any interest, but the point of this thread was to give people a small look into the history so that they can better figure out why they would join, organize or support a militia.  Right now, I'm not getting it.  The Bible says "A double minded man is unstable in all his ways."  Jame 1 : 8

 

What I'm seeing today are people that do NOT want to support the militia to protect, preserve, defend the principles our for forefathers fought, bled and died for.  Rather they see the militia as an expedient way to address individual issues without regard as to how the proposed "solutions" will impact our fundamental Liberties and Freedoms.  I'm just trying to get a reading on where it is all headed.  If the new militia is rejecting the principles upon which America was founded, it would be nice to know.  But right now we're taking two steps forward and three steps back.

Very well put. Very sad to realize how far we’ve slipped away but I attribute much of all falling away to liberal minded educators who tried to kill pride in America, patriotism & knowledge about the very founding of America. 

I have tried to educate my kids as they were growing up and my grandkids.

The education system especially colleges are mostly controlled by socialist and communist but on down to kindergarten as well now.  I always watch what my children are being taught and frequently correct the socialist slanted rewritten history and sociology they are being fed.

FWIW, It used to be that citizens had a right to look at the books and teaching curriculum and make public comment before the books were purchased.  If you have children, you should call your Superintendent of Schools and see if this door is still open.
