Patriotic Group To Build Armed 'Defensible' Neighborhood Fortress

CBS News
By Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr.
January 12, 2013

The group, named Citadel, intends to purchase 2,000 to 3,000 acres for the project in western Idaho. The community will comprise of 3,500 to 7,000 families of patriotic Americans who "voluntarily choose to live together in accordance with Thomas Jefferson's ideal of Rightful Liberty."



Some of the benefits of the Citadel community include a safe, well-prepared, patriotic community where children will be educated in school, not indoctrinated.

The community will be protected by a perimeter wall that will be inaccessible to "tourists." Each neighborhood within the community will have lower walls, dividing the town into defensible sections.

WTF????

Here's a link to the Citadel website:

15. Are you advocating the mass murder of American Citizens?

Because that's sure what it sounds like to me.

21. Yes. He truly wants to mass murder fellow citizens. I am sure he was not in the least bit sarcastic.

2. TYT

TYT did a great bit on this. Apparently this bastion of patriotism has no 'privately owned' property. Sounds like a bunch of pinko commies to me!!!!

3. The Citadel Patriot Agrrement

Eight: All Patriots, who are of age and are not legally restricted from bearing firearms, shall agree to remain armed with a loaded sidearm whenever visiting the Citadel Town Center. Firearm shall be on-the-person and under the control of the Resident, not merely stored in a vehicle.

5. I've always want to use my trebuchet in an actual siege

Now I just have to find some really big rocks and rotting animal carcases. I bet they over look simple things that will end up killing them if they ever were under siege, like a self contained water supply within the town or a ready supply of food stored up. These idiots think they know what they are doing but they have their heads so far up their asses they can't even smell shit anymore.

7. They've been watching too much

Walking Dead. This is funny. On the show the living took over a prison and had to clear it of zombies. It kind of looked like their Citadel.

8. And we should follow suit and build a bigger wall around them.

Maybe we should actually encourage them, by way of "no taxes" to people who want to live in their anti-socialist fantasy. They pay no taxes....and they get no services. I suspect that the vast majority of future immigrants wanting back in to US society will finally figure it out - with the lessons they learn, living in this anti-socialist utopia. Good luck surviving as "rugged individualists". I think it will be closer to the adult version of the "Lord of the Flies".

Google Christian Kerodin.

Teabagger of course.

Some of his 'tribe' ramblings will make you want to take a shower.
