Ohio Militia Calls for Armed March on Washington
The self-identified leader of the Ohio Militia, a conspiracy-minded Patriot group, released a video earlier this week calling for 1 million heavily armed antigovernment demonstrators to march on Washington, D.C., this coming July 4.

We need to do something, he said. We need to make a dent.

Identifying himself as Pale Horse, apparently a reference to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and speaking through a creepy voice distorter, the Ohio militiaman detailed his brazen vision: A peaceful demonstration of at least a million hey, if we can get 10 million, even better but at least one million armed militia men marching on Washington. A peaceful demonstration. No shooting, no one gets hurt. Just a demonstration. The only difference from any typical demonstration is we will all be armed.

The Ohio Militia website contains apocalyptic language and imagery, along with references to various 9/11 and North American Union conspiracy theories. Videos show men said to be Ohio Militia members engaged in small-unit, live-fire combat training. One video is titled Americas Wake Up Call: Buy Guns. A different video slideshow depicts assault weapons, mushroom clouds, George Bush, Satan, Osama bin Laden and lots of men in camouflage on maneuvers. Its set to Goofys Concern, a song by Butthole Surfers, a psychedelic rock band from Austin, Texas, that includes these lyrics: I dont give a fuck about the FBI! I dont give a fuck about the CIA! I dont give a fuck about LSD! I dont give a fuck about anything!

1. I'm pretty sure the Butthole Surfers wouldn't approve.
Gibby Haynes seems like a pretty cool guy.

2. I'd like to see them get a permit for this one...
"Yes, I'd like the permit applications to hold an armed march on The Mall..."

5. Why would one need to be ARMED for a peaceful march?
These people are scary, but I do think they are a fringe group. I don't see them getting a million, but I wonder if any group like this would remain peaceful.

20. I have no idea
But there's nothing wrong with demonstrating, armed or not.

They are somewhat scary, but like you said. I doubt they'll get a million. I doubt they'd get a hundred. Ten, I could see. Maybe.

28. It's one thing to demonstrate while being armed...
it's a completely different thing to state that you will be armed.

19. It's perfectly peacful right up until it's not
Just like an unarmed demonstration is peaceful right up to the point that someone throws a punch.

I agree there's probably a higher chance for stupid/terrible things to occur, but being legally armed does not disturb the peace.

10. Yeah I'm pretty sure an armed march on Washington by a bunch of unwashed inbreds
with beer guts would last all of 30 seconds--the point at which they'd walk by a KFC and get distracted.

18. If they could actually rally that many people...
Obama wouldn't have been elected.

Idiots. Armed idiots. Cheese and crackers! Talk about stoopid! I hope someone is knocking on his door right now... someone in a uniform, with a gun of their own, and handcuffs... even suggesting such a thing is wrong as all hell.

24. And why weren't these *patriots* marching on DC for the last 8 years?
If they are anti-govt, why were they not protesting Bush's ENORMOUS expansion of govt spending?

34. Heller was a ruling that banning owning a firearm
was not constitutional. Still illegal in D.C. to open or conceal carry I believe.

-----

CNN story when Heller decision came down: It still will be illegal to carry handguns outside the home, and all pistols must be registered with police.

32. The militias aint got nothin' on the Neo-Confederates.
I just drove around an area of North Central Virginia and I saw more Confederate flags than I saw American flags. Granted it's where a lot of the major conflicts in the Civil War were fought but these people aren't history buffs.
