A group of self-described revolutionary-style patriots with a million mobilized militia members are heading to downtown Washington, D.C., this week to bring a simple message to political leadershipicon1.png, from President Obama to House Speaker John Boehner: Get out...

... The group expects between 10 million and 30 million similarly thinking Americans to meet them in the capital on Friday for a rally that's being billed as a sort of "Arab Spring" for Americans.

Meanwhile, the group is holding another event on the same day in Bunerkville, Nev., near cattle rancher Cliven Bundy's property and in support of his stand-off with the Bureau of Land Management over grazing fees.

The Friday event was promoted by Tea Party Nation.

Mr. Riley said he hopes the event will go forward peaceably, but that so far, peaceful protests haven't brought citizens much luck. He also said that more than 1 million militia members have already mobilized for the event -and that projections of 10 million to attend aren't pie in the sky....

People aren't happy are they? I wonder if they'll get the numbers they want?

If they want to go and kill the POTUS I hope they have lots of bail money. It is one thing to threaten from a far. If they bring their guns into DC with the intent of murder...

I'm confident that our paramilitary police forces won't allow it to go that far. Seeing as people have been arrested for standing peacefully with slogans on T shirts?

The link provided didn't mention killing the POTUS. Where did that come from?

I have been monitoring many of the ultra right wing sites and their definition of "Take Obama out" is not non-violently. I will not give them space here. You Tube has many of the Holocaust deniers pushing the idea of "American Spring" where all government comes under military control and the military is to be led by the rabble who are planning this fiasco in DC. "Tens of Millions" are going to be there. It has become grotesque to even have to listen to them.

I imagine an armed, peaceful militia in front of the White House or the Capitol is like saying "I'm not touching you"?

Retired Army Colonel Plans Militia-Backed 'Operation American Spring' toForce Obama Out of Office

... Harry G. Riley tells Hatewatch his "Operation American Spring" is attracting widespread militia support and will be the sequel to last month's Cliven Bundy standoff in Nevada, "forcing the government thugs to back down in the face of 'We the People.'"...

... "The militia groups and the others stood up for Bundy and the government thugs stood down," Riley said. "I hope people feel the same way about Operation American Spring."In fact, Riley said he hopes members of Congress will "come to their senses," leave their offices and join in the demonstration set to begin in two weeks....

... The group will not apply for a U.S. Park Service demonstration permit "because we are just a bunch of individual patriots who plan on visiting Washington, D.C., exercising our constitutional rights, all at the same time," Riley told Hatewatch....

... "Our rules of engagement are simple: We will be unarmed, non-violent, law-abiding and peaceful," Riley told Hatewatch.

Sgt. Lelani Woods, a public information officer with U.S. Park Police, said there was little she could say about the planned Operation American Spring gathering, one of scores that occur in the nation's capital. Woods said the 613 commissioned members of the Park Police, including mounted, canine, motorcycle and aviation units, augmented by the Washington Metro Police Department, will be ready for the event.

District of Columbia gun laws prevent anyone, even law enforcement officers from other states, from carrying firearms in public.

"Those found in possession of firearms will be arrested," Woods said...

... The group plans for live streaming of its activities during the demonstration, and has established a detailed web site, including a "dispelling rumors" link. One rumor addressed by Riley, who worked at the National Security Agency while serving in the Army, is that he is somehow a provocateur or government plant.

Riley said he has had nothing to do with the NSA since retiring from the Army in 1992, ending a career in military intelligence that "centered on the enemy without," including the former Soviet Union and other perceived Communist threats.

"I'm now the 'enemy,'' he said, "and the NSA is probably listening to this conversation."...

I guess with no links we can just call it rumor and say "meh."

The actual organizers seems to want to demonstrate peacefully.

It seems that way to me. I hope it is peaceful.

Without a permit they may not have an easy time if many millions actually show up.

Word press is a bloggers resource. Anyone can blog about anything on that site. Apparently "ofthehighest" has a connection to the Christian American Patriot Militia. If you click on that link you are given the pablum of the right wing extremists. This is a closed group on fb and introduces itself by twisting the history of the country. Their claim is that the founding fathers were creating a Christian country. Obviously, if their knowledge of history is that bad the rest of what they have to say is suspect.

 

The blog itself is filled with hate speak. Anti Muslim, yada, yada.

These are their directions for those millions preparing to go to DC in support of this:

NOTICE EVERYONE: For those of you who are planning to go to Washington on May 16th, or if you are going to Nevada to support the Bundy family, keep in mind that if you do not go prepared to oppose the tasers, attack dogs and guns of the feds with equal or greater force that you will probably be wasting your time. It would be good if the feds (all of them paid and following orders) would start honoring their oaths to support and defend our Constitution, but they have not been doing so and it's unlikely that they will. They already know that they are in fact mercenaries with no Constitutional authority, i.e., no formal authority. If you go to Washington or Nevada, then go in peace and if the feds do not honor your protest, be very prepared to fight fire with fire !!! The feds obviously use violence-so if you are not intending to defend yourselves against tasers, attack dogs and guns, it is best you stay away.

So, they say fight fire with fire. Sounds like they are going looking for a fight. The feds are very reserved and it is not obvious to those with thinking minds that the feds will use violence. It seems obvious that these misguided souls are wanting to become martyrs. That is the reason I did not present any "proof". They do not deserve any air time. It is like using those with mental illness as amusement.
