Someone should let the Sheriff know about the typo, should be George III, not James.
In it, police officers, soldiers, veterans, tax defiers, Patriots, tea party members, right-wing militias, birthers and sovereign citizen proponents are all said to exhibit elements of a resurging anti-government movement that reached its zenith in the mid-1990s and spiraled out of control with violence and domestic terrorism.
What I want to know, is what violence and domestic terrorism ever rose out of the "militia movement".
Waco was a government operation, there would have been no violence without the BATF attack.
Ruby Ridge was a setup (and earlier), so, ditto, no violence without the government messing with someone.
The "Freemen" in Montana were apparently scam artists, not a militia, and the Oklahoma City bombing was supposedly done by a 'lone nutcase' and a friend, without anyone officially pursuing what could well have been ties to jihadist groups in the Phillipines.

I agree with your post. This is left wing propaganda pure and simple.
I've never belonged to a militia but the times are feeling right to start one of my own.
I'm tired of lying politicians stealing our nations wealth, religious zealots trying to impose a theocracy, and illegals with a socialist cause looking for a free ride. There are many millions of folks just like me in this great country. The feds need to get out of my Medical records, out of my check book, out of my bedroom, and out of my states politics.
