theorellior: sheep snorter: Good move ATF. Lets make it look like America committed self defense against the rats.

Every time I see that diagram I wonder how many acres of farmland they have set aside for cultivation, whether they're going to use good soil conservation, mulch-and-till practices, and yearly crop rotation schedules so that they don't rely on industrially-produced fertilizer and actually could survive the collapse of society. Or whether all that shiat's just enviro-nazi talk and they're just gonna get a tractor-trailer from WalMart every month to keep their fridges full of hot dogs and col' beer.


I assume that they'll just build a poorly designed pipeline from the north end to the south, call it Keystone to tweak "the liberuls" and the wonder why they aren't getting all the oil money that Limbaugh promised that would be created by it.

Dave, the Board asked me to speak to you in the hopes that we could resolve this amicably. It's just that your machine gun nest is covered in desert camouflage, and the Community Appearance Guidelines clearly specify that all gun emplacements should be tastefully covered in woodland camouflage. Now, we know you're a bit of a free spirit, so we turned a blind eye when you put a gold fringe on your Citadel flag, and we didn't say anything when you didn't put out luminaria for our town's celebration of the anniversary of Ruby Ridge. We're not unreasonable tyrants, after all, ha ha! So how about you go ahead and fix that camo? We're all just trying to make a nice neighborhood for our kids, after all.

I see this going either of two ways.

Either they're going to build this place and actually wall it up and a few months to a year later we'll all start hearing crazy stories from people cast out of the community for ideological impurity, someone's going to start a cult of personality, and that's when the shiat will really hit the fan.

Or more likely it's just going to be a semi gated community (they'll get bored with building the wall) where no one really has anything to talk about except how much they hate liberals and how much they wish they had trash pickup. Basically it'll be Kansas, but in Idaho. So really it'll just be like anywhere else in Idaho.

I can't wait, it's obvious what I'm pulling for.

Their stated goal is to build a small town for like-minded people to live in and be prepared in case the SHTF. They aren't hurting anyone else so WTF is your problem with this?

They claim to be patriots and nothing about their plan is inherently threatening. So I am a little confused how anyone can get from the information given that these folks are anti-USA, law breakers, rebels, or otherwise a threat or danger to the peace of the USA.

Also, if their goal is to set up this town and live there until the SHTF, then wouldn't it be in their best interest to never break any laws? If they start doing illegal things then the plan will be guaranteed to fall apart, especially if they sell guns.

The worst that could happen? Well, in the process of making the guns they could accidentally create a singularity that alerts an ancient race of aliens to our presence.

KarmicDisaster: Bloody William: This isn't a big deal. People who can build weapons will build weapons, and it's clear these guys are either too chickenshiat to do so without permission to begin with or too nuts to not do so if the government confirms their fears. If they start bombmaking or creating artillery or anti-air emplacements, then we'll have a problem.

I'm still amused by a community resisting tyranny by centrally planning an entire city. That and the stupidity of building a walled city in Idaho. Because... that's a defensible concept against a modern military.

That's the thing, an organized city? Don't they want a series of camouflaged bunkers and gun emplacements and booby traps connected by trenches and with lots of pylons?



Reading the article I get the impression that government and modern miitary are not their concerns:

The ATF license is an important step for The Citadel project. Organizers are hoping that proceeds from the gun business will underwrite the construction and development of the community, which is envisioned as a place for 3,500 to 7,000 "patriotic American families" who want to be ready for society's collapse,

In the event of society's collapse government and a modern military will be in short supply


and who want to live around more guns and fewer liberals in the meantime.

Well who doesn't?

hagoss01: This group never stated that they were prepping for "tyrannical government" but more for a situation where the government isn't able to protect them, such as a nationwide blackout or other large scale natural disaster.  And also, because they wanted to get away from liberals, marxists, etc.

From their FAQ:
What Threats Do You Expect to Defend Against?
The Citadel is primarily designed to defend against a grid-down, economic collapse scenario. When most people ask this question they are thinking in terms of defending against violent action but there are other aspects to defending ourselves. Self-sufficiency in terms of food, water and energy are also a form of defense against a collapse scenario, so these are a major part of our plan.
The Citadel is not designed to withstand any direct .Mil or .Gov attack. Nor is the Citadel, in any manner, attempting to provoke any government entity.


I like their use of .Mil and .Gov for military and government.  It makes them sound very in-the-know and not at all like conspiracy-sotted kooks.

Ok, I kind of get the idea of a separate, isolated community where you can surround yourself by like-minded people and never have to feel threatened or challenged by horrors such as opposing viewpoints. I mean, it's childish and stupid, but I get it. Why bother with the walls though? What problem does that solve? Walls have been obsolete since the invention of the cannon, and military hardware has advanced just a touch since then. When your defenses can be defeated by a cruise missile fired from a ship 1,000 miles away, or a small fleet of unmanned drones controlled by a guy with an Xbox controller in another state, not to mention tanks, artillery, missiles, grenades, and pretty much every aircraft ever designed, it seems like an unnecessary expense.I know that conservatives NEVER spend money unnecessarily, especially on feel-good, do-nothing measures that are designed purely to provide a false sense of security for the paranoid and perpetually terrified, so I don't get it. Maybe it's to stop sneaky liberals from slipping into town under the cover of darkness to soak up all of the glorious freedom and patriotism or, even worse, spread the ghey or something? I guess that kind of makes sense. You know, if you don't think about it.

Fista-Phobia: arentol: A lot of uninformed people a/o trolls here.

Their stated goal is to build a small town for like-minded people to live in and be prepared in case the SHTF. They aren't hurting anyone else so WTF is your problem with this?

They claim to be patriots and nothing about their plan is inherently threatening. So I am a little confused how anyone can get from the information given that these folks are anti-USA, law breakers, rebels, or otherwise a threat or danger to the peace of the USA.

Also, if their goal is to set up this town and live there until the SHTF, then wouldn't it be in their best interest to never break any laws? If they start doing illegal things then the plan will be guaranteed to fall apart, especially if they sell guns.

Sorry, but like 90% of the comments so far are 100% fail.

They love USA so much, they want to build their own society? Word.


With walls, turrets and a reflecting pool. It sounds like something I'd have drawn in my scribbler when I was 7. They think everyone is intimidated by it or something, whereas everyone just finds it hilarious and a little sad.

doglover: Strolpol: doglover: Bloody William: This isn't a big deal. People who can build weapons will build weapons, and it's clear these guys are either too chickenshiat to do so without permission to begin with or too nuts to not do so if the government confirms their fears. If they start bombmaking or creating artillery or anti-air emplacements, then we'll have a problem.

I'm still amused by a community resisting tyranny by centrally planning an entire city. That and the stupidity of building a walled city in Idaho. Because... that's a defensible concept against a modern military.

How long would the modern millitary last in a doomsday scenario?
Who in god's green earth would waste a nuke on idaho to off some whackjobs?

If the world does end, they're not only ready but ideally located. Making their plays legally now means they'll have experience for when they need it and funding for future improvements.

Plus it's a damn good idea to build an old fashioned walled city if society collapses because when push comes to shove missiles require massive infrastructure to utilize but rocks are timeless. We STILL use the great wall of China and a lot of pyramids and temples. A bunker buster might be able to knock it open, but who's dropping that on rednecks?

Who's talking about nukes? Drones would be far more environmentally friendly, and cheaper.

Heck, even in that futurewar scenario, any idiot could jury-rig a simple drone to drop firebombs.

Except all the drones were destroyed in the post-war fighting and computers have been wiped out since the power grid's been off.

Don't be a tard.

Awesome.

After looking over that site, I find it interesting that the "Patriots" who will live there won't own the property they're on, but will lease it from the company. They also plan on forming their own bank, with its own currency. Maybe the people working there will also be paid in said currency. That will only be to their advantage.

But then, I can't argue with making money of the paranoid.

If it does get built, I'll have to be one of the tourists who visits it.

Are these the same masters that they're asking for permits and tax breaks?

Also, I don't think anyone said it couldn't be done. I think most people thought it was a stupid idea for people that desire the collapse of civilization, which makes them sad, scared and pathetic. That's called mocking. Go ahead and build your super secret clubhouse, but realize no one really cares. You can have the whole state of Idaho. It won't be missed.

Probably because these very people apparently have no cognitive dissonance from a.) Building an refuge from evil gun-grabbing tyranny, and b. ) that so-called tyrannical government issuing them a permit to manufacture firearms.

If this was the kind of country they claim it was, they wouldn't have gotten that permit.
