Yes, it's called a Trump rally.

... really?  Because I think they've been pretty common in US history going all the way back to the founding of the country, to the point of them being a well-known stereotype of Christians especially.  Due to my having done things like, y'know, passed all my primary school history classes and such.

Did they get upgraded to one on every street corner like Starbucks or something?

Because it's a bunch of white people they don't get called terrorist camps, they get called militias.

Same difference however.

I dont think the headline was trolling, I think subby is ignorantly naive and that this particular story was eye-opening to them.

Keep your head buried in the sand, subby.

Since you refuse to release your transcripts, Mr. President, we'll just have to take your word for it.

I suppose I should also include hillbillies as well, but that's a 6 of one, half dozen of the other scenario as far as I'm concerned.

That's a "compound"? It looks more like a particularly sadistic gym teacher's obstacle course.

Oh I thought it was going to be about the School of the Americas, where the US government brings in rebels from other countries and trains them to be terrorists and sends them back to their home countries to tear down governments that our corporations didn't like.  My bad.

Having gone through this, that is easily the most disturbing and horrifying thing I've ever seen.
 
2019-03-15 06:43:41 AM  
Yeah, it was a training camp. And the jackasses should be up on child endangerment charges.

Give the militias and the white power types some credit, they get their camps built up to code. Of course, they have the benefit of having town and state officials looking the other way when they build their facilities...

This really should have a Follow Up tag. There were several threads when it first got busted.

Yeah, F Troop was trying to plan something. That was pretty much a given when it first happened. I'm just surprised it took this long to get the indictments. It's fortunate their planning skills didn't include obtaining basic provisions for the residents.

Dirt filled tires make a fairly decent bullet resistant barrier

I just glanced at this article in detail..."Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40; Hujrah Wahhaj, 38; Subhanah Wahhaj, 36"

Do these sound like "white power" types?  If I missed something in the article - fine.

Anyhow, I don't care.  Islamists or white power a-holes.  Chuck them in the deep stripey hole forever.

As long as it's a 401(c)  i'm okay with it.

Were they going to terrorize us by throwing old tires?

The punishment of living in a polyethylene sheeting tent seems like enough to cover that crime.

Yeah, I almost bit once or twice, but kept on scrolling to see if they had been responded to and realized they were trolls after posts like yours.

Langdon_777: Isn't that a militia?


Depends. A legal militia, as defined by the Constitution, has the goal of protecting the government. Terrorist militias are the opposite.
