There are dozens of militias. Far right, anti government, Nazi, KKK, Asatru, probably hundreds of them.

For one reason or another they can't seem to differentiate between well regulated and unregulated. Any gang of scofflaws and blackguards can call themselves a militia.

We've got a standing army now. Which also isn't exactly working out all that well either. Just like the kings men and Redcoats of yore once dominated every nation in the world, the US "militia" is stationed worldwide bullying other nations into compliance.

Here is yet another thought. As far as I can tell Trump has created his very own group of warriors. they are called ICE and they are part of Homeland Security. Unlike our Armed Forces, Homeland Security is led by an appointee of Trump. the hed of Homeland Security is supposed to be approved by the Senate but, I think, not unlike most appointees those slots are filled by 'temporary' whatevers. The Temporary appointees owe their allegiance to Trump as far as I know. They are not sworn in they simply are.

I betcha if you bore down in Homeland Security you will find a LOT of military types serving, and doing the bidding, of the pres?

You mean the ones that are kidnapping people off the street, putting a hood on them, driving them around and then let them take of the hood when they are in a cell and then released of of which happens without a single word from the kidnappers?

We are told they are Homeland Security (Trump) troops and, possibly, federal marshals as well.

These are, we are told, in every city that has a federal office. One can only wonder what they will be doing if
Trump loses the election?

Some deranged Trump fans set the Maricopa County Democratic Headquarters on fire, in Arizona. Failed to spread to the state Party headquarters. But the funny thing is that they will very likely get caught because it was all on security cameras.

Not much damage to the Democratic Party, since all the workers have been working at home for quite a while. But it certainly looks bad for Republicans!

Two Self-Described “Boogaloo Bois” Charged with Attempting to Provide Material Support to Hamas
US Department of Justice | Public Affiairs


The Right has spent a good deal of this summer clutching their pearls and acting like they are really horrified by violence and trying to pretend like they sincerely think Black Lives Matter and antiFA are terrorist organizations, when the reality is they just wish they could go back to a time when unarmed black people being murdered by cops didn't even make the news. In reality, a recent study showed that over 93 percent of protests were non-violent, and in reality it probably a lot more than 93 percent because the metrics they used deemed things like destruction of Confederate statues to be acts of violence. Additionally, a good deal of the violence was caused by counterprotesters showing up armed and ready to fck with people (and, well, the poilce.).

A lot of the time, these counterprotesters were Boogaloo Bois. Far-right, Hawaiian shirt wearing, gun toting douchebags who just really want to incite a race war in the United States, in order to give them some meaning in their otherwise empty lives, and who saw the protests as a chance to push the United States in that direction. So far, quite a few Boogaloo Bois have managed to get arrested for various acts and attempted acts of terrorism.

Hmm

Now, two more Boogaloo Bois have gotten themselves arrested. Michael R. Solomon, 30, and Benjamin R. Teeter, 22, were taken into police custody on Thursday after trying to join the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. The two reportedly belonged to a Boogaloo Boi subgroup called the Boojahideen, whatever the hell that is supposed to be.

According to John C. Demers, the head of the Justice Department's National Security Division, the pair had told undercover agents posing as Hamas members that they would like to "join forces and provide support, including in the form of weapons accessories.

gobsmacked

These two Rightwingers decided that it would be a good idea to try to manufacture a bunch of gun parts for a terrorist group, because they felt this would aid them in their plans to start a race war in the United States. They're basically the Manson family. They could have and would have killed people, as part of this cause that they so desperately believe in — a cause that other supporters have tried to claim is simply "loving the Second Amendment too much," while insisting that all of the memes about starting another civil war are not supposed to be taken seriously.

But they really should be.

The boogaloo bois are inheritors of Charles Manson. Their tripe has been around for a very long time. Just another branch of the White Nationalists. The FBI has been warning about this stuff for years and, for years, have pretty much been ignored.

Now, in Trump, the whole nest has found a believer in Trump. Don' matter what he says, don' matter the lies, don' matter the ignorance. These people simply live in a different reality and depend on the rest of us to keep it together enough so they can have something to eat.

Strange times..........

A Boogaloo Boi was escorting Kyle Rittenhouse before he went on his shooting spree. Apparently nearly half of the "militia" agitators in Kenosha were Boogaloos. Color me shocked.

The boy got sucked into a cult, brainwashed...and people died.

Not much different really from dozens of other white right wing mass murderers.

No different from the Muslim zealots strapping themselves with dynamite and blowing up the marketplace.

At the moment the United States is basically a failed state. We're gonna be seeing some weird sh*t over the next few years.
