1. if videos make them feel better about themselves, so be it

those were some cook 'karate kid' moves. wax on, wax off and the rest. they should be right proud.

2. The first time somone shoots back, they will pee and run.
Our founding fathers are turning over in their graves.

Our founding mothers are rolling their eyes.

3. I spent a couple hours last night
reading several hundred posts on a Freeper board. At least one in ten was calling for out right violence.
Some of these people have been fondling their guns for decades and their ready to shoot something.
In their befuddled minds healthcare reform is the end of the world as they know it.

These are emotionally unstable people with a mob mentality.

4. SO FUCKING LAME
first of all, they are all perfect age to be actually IN the military. Im sure they have "good" reasons why they arent. Maybe its the actual discipline that they dont like.

All of their little tactics they apparently got from the movies - they are executed sloppily with little or no speed or muzzle discipline. Dismounted patrols are pretty intense operations, you dont just amble along like these guys.

Ive always hated these kinda of mega loser douschebags. We have hundreds of thousands of actual patriots going into harms way these past few years, and these fools think running around the farm all day with guns and getting wasted at night is the same thing.

6. Judging by your
comments and the GWOTEM ribbon avatar, I take it that you've had some experience in these matters.

Also, I wonder how these cowboys can afford the weapons, gear and ammo ? Meth sales perhaps ?

5. give me a break...
As a gun toting Liberal and a former US Army Infantryman, I find this video insulting. They have no right to fly military banners ("Dont tread on me") as part of their "militia training video".
I'm all for the rights of people to form a militia, provided it's existence is not intended to encourage hate or violence toward ANY other American. Anyone who instigates or attempts to instigate such violence would, in my book, be the very definition of a terrorist.

15. I'd like to encourage people to send the record label a message
regarding the use of Creed in association with a promotional video that encourages violence and associates the UN with Nazi Regimes.
The contact info is below.
Thank you!

18. your book and mine
a genuine civil defense militia would willingly submit to the actual military command in times of disaster or actual national defense. Im guessing that these fucktards would not.

7. Laugh or cry?
They look like the Keystone Cops got a hold of some Taliban training videos and decided to try to emulate them.

I can't decide whether to laugh or cry, but am leaning towards the former.

8. Fat, out of shape, unprofessional laughable bullshit. Anyone who's been trained in the real military
sees this for what it is: boys playing with toys.

Jeans? That pet they were using as a dog?

Where is the conditioning? Where is the training?

That knife training was just hilarious. The partner stood there like he would just sit and take a slashing and stabbing.

Woo, shooting a branch at 20 feet! That's an accomplishment. How are you going to measure grouping and accuracy on that?

How about hitting a target in the head consistently at 100 yards with an M-16? Nope? Keep playing boys, you'll piss your pants the first time you are really tested.

19. the army has a good BRM prgram
Id only shot a few deer rifles before going to basci training. The army taught me everything I needed to know to consistently and accurately engage a target, with open sites, out to 400 meters.
It is a well honed and oiled process, and it produces genuine marksmen and women(my platoon designated "sharpshooter" was a female)

25. I was a designated sharpshooter way back when as well
Could head-shot a target at 400 yards. Had consistent grouping and made the pistol team. I do like to shoot.

10. Right-wing militias....
.... are little more than support groups for the owners of small penises.

You've gotta laugh at these guys.

We know what their real problem is.

11. I am sure they paid for the rights to use that song.
Edited on Wed Aug-19-09 01:09 PM by Seldona
Perhaps an email to their record company is in order? What is with all the Nazi symbolism they are using? Do these idiots really think the Nazis would have embraced the President? It would be the other way around.

14. How do we know these are right wingers??
I only saw they were concerned about the New World Order which everyone should be.
If there was a clue I missed, please let me know.
If these are right wingers, then of course I am concerned.
If these are just Americans trying to learn a few things to protect their homes and families..then it is fine by me.
Just because people might want to be prepared doesnt make them evil or bad.

16. I hope thats sarcasm...
right wingers use fear as a tool like its going out of style... Whats one of the first things we see in that video? The symbol for the United Nations being partially replaced by a Swastika in an obvious effort to demonize the UN. Republicans hate the UN... they see it as a larger form of government. Moreover, they see it as a body that tried to obstruct their war. Its quite plain to see these are right wingers.

22. I emailed the poster of this vid from YouTube
He said "if something ever happened, we'd fight".


I asked him if he's been asleep for the last 8 years. I despise chickenhawks.

23. I'm not noticing any entrenching training there...
...but then, repositioning a few cubic yards of earth one shovelful at a time isn't nearly so awesomely kewl as playing Rainbow Six "live".

Especially with the way they handle their weapons.
