“America’s self-styled militias have roots dating back to the KKK’s formation during Reconstruction. In the latest “Reality Check with John Avlon: Extremist Beat,” CNN’s Sara Sidner joins Avlon as they trace this history, from the Minutemen of the 1960’s to the deadly Oklahoma City bombing to today’s Oath Keepers, some of whom face charges of storming the US Capitol on January 6.”
Crazy thing is…the government does have a history of swooping in, and stripping people of their rights…even throwing them into prison cells and decimating their lives…
These “militias” are correct about that bare bones fact…
…What they don’t seem to understand, is that these heinous practices of government ruthlessness have historically been inflicted upon racial minorities, sexual minorities and people with more socialistic [ie: care of the people’s fundamental needs] leanings…the impoverished and down trodden.
So many of these “militia” people have had no direct threat made against themselves…They’re about as free as anyone can be [short of being super wealthy], in this country…It’s all paranoia they have going on in their own heads…and a lot of them want to start a mass murder rampage over it.
From what I’ve seen…a lot of these “militia” sorts are pissed off, that a lot of the minorities historically shit upon by this country are actually gaining rights…and making a place for themselves in this country…gaining equal protections and equal standing.
Something is fundamentally broken in them, where they believe they don’t have to treat other human beings, like they are human beings.
