If only someone could have predicted that an organized group of right wing militia fanatics with a history of violence would do such a thing…

Will be interested for more details. I suspect this was a bunch of weirdos talking and then some FBI undercover op got wind of it, stirred the pot and got them to buy enough equipment to justify a raid. This has been going on since 9/11.

They give me the impression they are going door to door.

Ding dong. Have you heard our call for violent overthrow of the government?

I’m sure Baby Donnie’s April 17 tweet, “LIBERATE MICHIGAN!,” and his calling the heavily armed goons who took over the Michigan state house at the end of April “very good people,” and his many attacks on Whitmer since then, did nothing to encourage these thugs.

Guessing no armed to the teeth, white, skinhead, misogynist pricks were shot to death for squirming in the wrong direction-- during this arrest?

We need to use this to make clear that there is a real threat of white nationalist violence, and that this ANTIFA stuff that Barr constantly pushes is a myth. We need to force the DOJ to devote resources to this and keep them away from any plot Barr has to seize VBM ballots.

Terry Nichols was the Michigan militia guy. McVeigh was more Arizona, although he spent some time in Michigan with Nichols too.

Now’d be a good time for every dumbass state that allows dumbass “militia” members access to government grounds (including capitols) with weapons to change their dumbass laws.
