Economy, Obama administration help fuel Kentucky militias' resurgence

Bob Resnick didn't believe all the right-wing militia conspiracy theories the FEMA internment camps or the government coffins stockpiled for the day the feds declare martial law and round up dissenters. But they made him wonder.

Then America's economy tumbled and the nation elected Barack Obama, and the resulting chatter about socialist incursion, rampant gun control and a government takeover of health care made him fear where the nation was heading.

So the 43-year-old disabled Louisvillian searched the Internet for local militia groups that seemed to echo his misgivings.

The way everything's going nowadays, if the economy tanks and they do declare martial law, and they do like California with all the riots and stuff, I'd like to know I've got a group I can be with so I'm not on my own, he said.


First off, what a HORRIBLE headline! Blaming the Obama administration for an increase in militia membership is like blaming a woman who was raped for having been out in public.

Secondly, where is the blame of right-wing hate merchants like Beck and Limbaugh for these idiots' taking to arming themselves and creating groups of chairborne rangers?


*sigh*

1. Militia's should be born of the moment and circumstance
Not for a bunch of sheep to 'play army'. After Oklahoma City I would hope the FBI is watching these Mcveigh wannabees. I have always thought if these people are patriots they could join the service. Nothing like carrying a weapon every day makes you want to not carry a weapon everyday. Citizens should maintain vigilance in watching these little penis boys play. When I wrote Mitchie to use his power to quell the crazy talk from the right his answer was he didn't want to restrict 1st amendment rights. I have never gotten anything but double talk from him. He is a chickenhawk too. As far as joining things, after you join the Army it can break the joining urge for a lifetime. The Fox boys and Lou-ser may have to answer for their lying inciderary rants. VIGILANCE
