Militia members march on Ohio Statehouse

NBC 4i – by Rick Reitzel

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Heavily armed men and women, many in full combat gear, marched through downtown Columbus Friday morning.

They said their purpose is to let people know they are here to protect freedom for all.

More than 100 militia members from around the country marched from COSI to the Statehouse to talk about freedom and rights, but when they got there, they were met with jeers from about a dozen protesters.  

The protest group descended from the statehouse steps chanting, “Hey hey, no fear, immigrants are welcome here.” A barricade set up and manned by Ohio State Patrol troopers separated the two groups.

The militia group standing on the steps of the McKinley Statue on the High Street side responded with their own message for the protesters. Yelling in unison, “Freedom, 1, 2, 3 freedom.”

Paige Stemen from Piqua marched with the militia group carrying an American flag.  She said she with a specific reason for marching.

“We are here to peacefully assemble and let everyone know we are here for unity. We are here to come together as Americans, to make sure our freedoms are protected, even those on the other side,” said Stemen.

Asked about seeing semi-automatic weapons and combat gear laden people marching downtown, Stemen said folks should not be concerned.

“No not when it is being worn by men and women who served this country,” Stemen replied.

One militia member taunted protesters when he said Muslims don’t belong in America. Bilal El Yousseph was standing there, and took offense; he said several of his family members are military veterans.

“So why do people say Muslims don’t belong here? It really kills me, our sacrifices don’t mean anything. This is our country as much as anyone else’s,” said El Yousseph.

Both sides seemed to agree on one thing – that dialog, even voiced at the top of their lungs, is important.

There are three different bills before state lawmakers related to firearms and gun rights.

    Where the heck did this “militia” come from? Protecting illegals!

    • Henry Shivley says:

      Tory militia?

      • Frank Face says:

        Shouldn’t we have heard about this beforehand? Well if it is as it seems and it is Tory Militia, then that would go along way to explaining how this could manifest out of the ether.

      Hi Katie. Not 100% sure because I am on small screen right now, but I think the tory militia responds to them with their gay a$$ wannabe Wallace battle cry. Looks like those are counter protesters. Either way, they’re BOTH fed zog supporters. That stemen lady proposes the crap that vets somehow have a greater right than WE the People because they served their zionist masters makes it look like the same coin to me. All her other internet posts have a msm flavor with a dash of alternative media sprinkled on top for “authenticity”. They’re making the transition and jones-stein doesn’t appeal to everyone.

    crisis actors is my guess…….if any real militia came out to ‘protect freedom for all’ I would think they would start with our political prisoners such as the Hammonds and the Bundys

    We do not march or shout out at msm media. We do not protest or paint the paid for profit signs.
    We are blades of grass.
    We even watch the bullshit as your world crumbles and say nothing.
    We are the silent majority, that is leaving you in a fetal satanic position.
    Your time has come and the real 3% men and women are not part of this and other staged events. I never thought it would come to this.
    “Victory or Death”
    Lt. Col. William Barrett Travis while besieged within the Alamo by the Mexican army in San Antonio de Bexar. The Travis letter is universally regarded as one of the most heroic letters ever written. Facing almost certain death, Travis vowed never to surrender or retreat and to “die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country — Victory or Death.”

    Right up until it’s YOUR wife or DAUGHTER that’s raped and killed, or YOU that’s robbed and murdered.

    Low-life gutter trash!
