I was recently queried by a fellow patriot asking if I knew of any groups readying for war. Short answer: No, I do not.
But, it did jog a realization (which I’m sure most of you have already had): We all should be readying for war.
Note that I don’t mean “war” metaphorically. I mean “war” as in war. Fighting, suffering, excruciating pain, gore, death, loss, heartbreak, tragedy, destruction, inhumanity, chaos, etc. I.e., something which no sane person wants but which we would be fooling ourselves in thinking isn’t being pushed upon us by The Powers That Be.
So I figured I’d put together a post outlining thoughts I’ve had and strategies I’ve taken to get myself into a position for whatever may come. I hope that it spurs some good input from the group. Consider this another “WIP” post whereby I’ll synthesize all the feedback into something more comprehensive later.
In the meantime, this is what I’ve got:
1. Keep it on the DL
Patriots are the New Homosexuals
Back in the good old days when faggotry was considered something to be embarrassed about, homosexuals had to dance around their intentions and very, very, ever-so-carefully feel out other potentially like-minded men out of fear of being “outed” and thus subject to humiliation, ostracizing, or worse. (“You’re a friend of Abe’s?” is the new “You like Judy Garland?”)
Perhaps this analogy doesn’t hold true in blessed Red States like Texas, but up here in cursed Libtard country, it certainly does.
So to the question of “How does one find fellow [local] brothers-in-arms?”, the answer is: very carefully.
The Lessons of a Certain AWDer
No, it wasn’t me. (I think it was patriot extraordinaire Mister Bill who was mistaken on that.) It was a fellow patriot whose name shall remain, for our purposes here, “Peanut Butter”. Anyway, he posted a comment that was construed as a threat against someone in position of power, and, voila, got himself a visit by the Secret Service.
What can we learn from this little situation?
- They’re watching us. This isn’t paranoid talk. This is not theory. This is fact. The evidence has been gathered and it is indisputable: They are watching us.
- They will find you, no matter how anonymous you think you are. (Again, not paranoid conspiracy theory, but demonstrable fact.)
- Control yourself, soldier. Bite your effing tongue. Loose lips sink patriots. If you think it might get you or any other patriot in trouble, don’t type it. Save it for a hushed, face-to-face conversation with a close confidante.
Only the Paranoid Survive
Do I know any groups preparing for war? No; nor should I. If any person or group were openly advocating for violent insurrection against the USG, I’d say they’re almost certainly an agent provocateur or honey pot.
Again, they’re watching us. They’ve not doubt infiltrated every patriot group out there, from militias down to blogs like this one. Don’t play the patsy. Distrust anyone who talks concretely about violence or destruction.
Don’t be these clowns.
Oath Keepers is strictly an outreach organization to educate current and former military men and law enforcement officers on their commitments to the Constitution. Nothing more and nothing less.
However, I’ve found this group to be filled with patriots who strike me as willing, ready, and able to defend the country by any means necessary. In short, though the OKs aren’t, by definition, going to organize anything more than Constitution 101 classes, their members are nonetheless good people to know should/when SHTF.
I’ve posted about this group before. I like their message and their spunk. They’re no doubt heavily monitored by Nappy Napolitano and her bull-dyke crew over there at the Department of Fatherland Security (which would be to their credit). My only concern is that they seem to be having difficulty organizing/gaining traction.
In any event, I’d recommend joining their ranks at any of the following locations:
This is something I have yet to explore, but I intend to do so before the month’s out.
Like the Oath Keepers, prepping has nothing to do with fighting or anything like that, yet most preppers I’ve met seem to be disproportionately eyes-wide-open patriots who are willing, ready, and able.
3. SHTF Plan
Food, water, medical supplies, medication, fuel, etc. Again, join a good preppers group to get all the niity-gritty on the what and hows of getting all this crap together, etc.
Guns and ammo, baby. If you don’t have them yet, get them now. (In case you haven’t noticed, the clock is ticking. Fast.)
This is extremely important, and perhaps the single most important thing for those of us in enemy territory. E.g., what do you do when SHTF?
How do you get your family to safety? What are your contingency plans? How do you get in contact with friends and family when all communication systems are down? What do you do about gas in the car when there are no gas stations in operation? Etc.
On 9/11, Rudy Giuliani reached into his desk and pulled out an emergency plan for the entire metropolis of New York…and executed it. We should all be this prepared and thorough with our planning when all goes to pot. (No, I’m not there yet myself.)
Update 2013-01-11 – 15-58
Courtesy Facebook post:
In November of 2004 it took 13,500 US Marines and Army soldiers to subdue the Iraqi city of Fallujah, with a population of 326,000 – about the population of Cleveland, Ohio.
Of the American force which entered the city, 95 of our men were killed, and 560 horribly wounded. The Red Cross estimated that some 800 civilians were killed during the fighting. This battle proved to be the bloodiest of the war and perhaps the toughest for US troops since Vietnam or even the Pacific campaign of World War II.
No one had ever expected such effective resistance from the poorly trained and demoralized Iraqi army, led by incompetent officers…
But instead the US found itself fighting against the highly motivated yet untrained average Iraqi middle class citizen who had absolutely no gun culture and had suffered for generations under a police state. These outraged citizens were armed with nothing more than Saddam’s left over AK-47’s with a limited supply of ammunition and a handful of grenades.
Indeed, the US military found the Iraqi’s so stubborn, it was forced to resort to violating the Geneva Conventions and fire deadly White Phosphorus poison against human beings in order to rout the defenders. Fighters who had nothing more than light arms.
So the next issue then becomes: if the vaunted United States Marine Corps had this much trouble with uneducated, untrained, poorly led and barely equipped civilians in Iraq, what do you think is going to happen when the local police try and start confiscating guns here in America? Against motivated people who KNOW how to use those guns, and have been purchasing ammo and weapons at unprecedented levels for the last four years?
Presuming those criminals in government can find a cop or soldier even willing to break their oath in the first place; we’re NOT giving up our guns and will fight to preserve our liberty.
Time is running out fast people. If we’re to prevent this violence, call your local politicians NOW and tell them to STOP provoking the American people into a Civil War. Let them know in no uncertain terms: you will NOT comply with any “law” to disarm the citizenry.
