Inside the far-right American ‘militia networks’ arming themselves for ‘Civil War’ as Joe Biden becomes president

The Sun

Hundreds of far-right groups have sprung up across the US and are ramping up recruitment in the fallout from the highly charged election and the coronavirus pandemic.

Online forum My Militia – which promotes itself as an “American Patriot Network” – has more than 20,000 users and has seen a flurry of activity in recent weeks.

The network claims there are 544 militias currently active in the US, carries instructions on how to make explosives and improvised weapons, survivalist tips, threads dedicated to conspiracy theories, and lists of names of members of “Antifa“.

Many of the self-appointed militiamen say they are preparing to ride out mass civil unrest, while others more dramatically predict an upcoming “Civil War”.

It comes after a string of violence over the summer with Donald Trump blaming extreme left-wing groups for stoking mayhem.

Some groups are braced for attacks by “Antifa” who Trump branded “scum” after clashes at a recent marches in Washington DC.

Dr Rakid Ehsan, a research fellow from think tank the Henry Jackson Society, told The Sun Online the rise of the these groups is “deeply concerning” for the US.

He warned the potential of these organisations clashing with extreme left-wing groups could turn the US into a “powder-keg”.

Fears of civil unrest have been mounting following the election as the White House allege the far left is to blame for much of the bloodshed in the wake of George Floyd‘s death.

US attorney General William Barr has previously said the Justice Department is monitoring “Antifa”.

  1. Any and I mean any fkn Militia that is serious either organized or unorganized that is giving interviews or allowing media to film their training or any other interaction with these Propaganda arms of the NWO are in league with the NWO

    Can’t see it any other way. You are playing Into the hands of your enemy.

    You will have zero positive coverage to promote your little army play time and group.

    The NWO is making their end game move and they are not playing and they intend to continue this energetic push to crack and break our Nation.

    So stop playing like your are a patriot rebel and fkn become one…!

    1. ‘Propaganda arms of the NWO’ …. I agree Norm
      ‘See? The militia will save me.’ Those demonstrations are for those who have not come to the full realization that it is upon each of us to rid this country of the communist filth that has plagued us for far too long.

    2. If they’re salty about bidet being “it” because the other zio-joo lackey chump didn’t get to be “it” again, they just don’t get it and are completely worthless, as well.

      Spot on, Norm. Bunch of larpers in orange wigs yelling “MIGAAAA!”.

  2. They also need to quit talking
    And start acting
    You never telegraph your intentions
    That’s how you end up dead in war

    1. Exactly. That is what Republic of Texas head honcho Rick McLaren did, just go through the motions as his movement split into factions (one of which was clearly infiltrated by FBI…and he was even warned of this! So what does he do? Allow an infiltrator to be his “embassador to the US”!) to no affect except bring out the standoff in 1997. He is now in jail for life.
