4. Good one...

It seems that those "types", whomever they are, are actually exploiting the circumstances for other reasons and in an intentional and networked fashion. You know the reasons and basis.

For instance when I see the "armed protesters" it tells me they are making their presence known and are more about a show of force that is not really aimed at the government, per se, (they know better) but is meant to create an image in the minds of the people they want to intimidate and would be shooting and killing given the green light of boogaloo, (supposed civil war).

These are displays of potential or implicit terrorism, not the brave bold stance of patriots. Patriots don't consider their fellow Americans to be potential targets because of their views and politics, (and add, race, etc.) It's a bully and coward game.

11. Exactly right. They are not patriots. They are domestic terrorists.

Waiting for the go word.

13. Something is wrong...

It is hard to believe that, if terrorists originate overseas, they are considered a serious threat, so much so that a huge Patriot Act is crafted and put into law. An entire agency is created, (Homeland Security) to thwart them.

Now, that's not much of an issue, but the worst part is they refer to these touched in the head derelicts as "armed" protestors. If you read up enough about these movements, they are clearly as much a threat as the "other" terrorists, so there must be many reasons for playing this down.

Either they are being enabled for some reason, (Orangeshirts) or they are being placated because they represent a pervasive danger that somebody is afraid to ignite. Well, there are the good ol' boy networks across this country, as well.

No matter how you slice it, that's a serious concern for me and a big source of cognitive dissonance. Things just don't add up and I am not being a CT about it.

18. I agree. Something is not right.

I don't believe you're being CT about it at all, you make some very valid arguments.

Like you, I am keeping my eyes open and my mind free to ponder possibilities. It serves me well to remain aware of the potential of these domestic groups. Heck, they surround me here in North Houston.

8. It's important to understand there are different groups involved.

 

Many preppers are hiding in their houses like good Americans, then there are the fake patriots who follow their fascist leaders and storm courthouses. And then there is the Boogaloo movement. The boogaloo movement is a dangerous domestic terrorist group, you can identify them by their Hawaiian shirts under their bulletproof vests. Sometimes they have patches on their jackets identifying themselves as part of the movement. Their flag is an igloo and a palm tree.

The boogaloo movement considers the prepper movement to be weak, boogaloos aren't preppers. They plan on getting their resources by killing preppers and taking their weapons, food, and water.

They have vowed to start the next civil war by killing law enforcement and politicians.

The big problem is a lot of them hide within other groups. That's why it is always important to take lots of photographs at these events and post them to Twitter or Facebook and tag them as domestic terrorists that way the various anti-hate groups can track them.

16. Thanks...

I knew about the targeting of preppers as resources, (sitting ducks) but was not aware of the symbols they are using.

It is always good to know your opponent and I recommend that DU's get a real sense of what is going on with this. It may seem a bit frightening to some, but not knowing more about it is more dangerous because they are there and poised and need to be exposed more.

19. Well one problem with their plan.

If they start systematically killing law enforcement, they had better be able to mask who are doing it well, because if they don't, a million pound weight is going to drop on each one of their asses. I believe the same thing would happen to them if they started systematically killing mail carrier or EMTs, society would want to shut that down fast.

9. Or, in my daughter's case,

can't buy yarn without standing in line to get into the store. I said this just the other day. They have their guns and stockpiles of canned food and want to live off the grid. But take their yarn store away, or make it less convenient? Tyranny!

On a serious note, this shows just how easily the media gets used to drive wedges between us while Trump, the death demon, looks on and smiles with his anus-like mouth.
