Georgia militias forming alliances. Some are MTG-related.
The linked article details who these people are and how they are coalescing. They liken themselves to an IRA/ Sinn Féin type scenario. I can't help thinking that these are semi grown-up boys playing at war, in search of a cause. I imagine secret meetings and passwords. I don't think they have a prayer against the FBI and related law enforcement, as well as the military. But that holds only if law enforcement and the military don't actually abet them, and we've already seen some of that. The other problem is that more people might die. The Atlanta Journal/Constitution gives us fair warning.
in law enforcement and military, most wouldnt aid the militias against the government.
But I'd be appalled if ANY of them abetted the lawless. And some already have. Not only that, the courts have helped them, too. Time after time, rioters arrested back in their home states have been released on their own recognizance by local judges and magistrates. DC Federal judges have stepped in and directed they be held until trial. The pentagon refused to send the National Guard to quell the riot on 1/6. And when they did finally send the Guard, they issued orders that prevented any actual interference with the rioters. I know that was the dump Defense Department, and there's a ne sheriff in town. But what if there's a riot in GA or any other state with a repug governor? Will those toads be quick to send in the Guard to save innocent lives?
And if these militia start using IRA tactics well I will denounce them too.
Didn't these folks hear Kevin McCarthy say that Rep. Greene had totally walked back some of her remarks? Surely they wouldn't be so crass as to listen to what Marjorie said and posted publicly while screening out what McCarthy said she said privately?
