Militia AAR


Opening comments: A reader asked for “my take” on the militia, in concept and in practice.

I dislike the term, both from a Nineties-era Clintonista disinformation campaign perspective and my concern that if one truly is an unorganized militia member, then you are in fact and by law subject to the command of the Federal government.

So, using the term generically, I think a “militia” consisting of local volunteers self-equipping and training to be responsive to local needs is not only supported by precedent in the political history of white North America, but very likely supported by the history of aboriginal North America as well. It is, after all, inherent in the social nature of man to band together, and that band almost always did have and will have for the foreseeable future a self-defense aspect, even if not fully expressed due to conditions.

I share with any sane observer the misgivings about competence and mindset. Of course, I have those same misgivings about police, with a heckuva lot more factual basis (as WRSA readers know ad nauseum). But very much unlike the police in general, the militia folks are almost always motivated by a sincere desire to help their communities not only without compensation, but much more likely at significant personal expense. Call it a “militia”, a “community watch”, a “neighborhood defense team”, or anything else that seems appropriate – it is your community, those folks are your neighbors, and only by working together will you and your family have the best chance against whatever threats appear incident to the fall of the American Empire.

Hey Peter,

Thought you might get a kick out of this. Some more of that “Worthless Militia” training that folks bitch about. We had 9 units from 3 states. Practiced movement to contact, force on force (w/ blanks of course) Four squads of six men air-lifted to an LZ within striking distance of our mock target (an encampment staffed by OPFOR). Communications and coordination were much better than expected. See attached and feel free to use any or all of it. Including my email []. While folks dissect frogs on the intardwebs, we are doing it. Train or die.

Take Care Brother,

    Reblogged this on The Dixie Traveler.

  2. I should note that all units are in the Appalachian Redoubt. Air mobility here would be most valuable against bandits, looters and other sundry ne’er do wells. (and yes we can hide our shit)

    Thanks Pete, let the bitchin’ commence.

  3. Bravo Zulu, Sandman.

  4. Very cool shit there Sandman. Who’s Huey? I started out on those birds before we got the Blackhawks. One technical issue. Why aren’t those guys providing a 360 degree security perimeter during hover and landing?

    Reality check. Trainers have to disavow militia in any shape, matter or form. They will come up with novel names, NPT’s CUTT’s, whatever, but at the end of the day, they’re training fucking militiamen. What they’re trying to do is cover their ass by calling us something else in order to have plausible deniability.

    A bit disingenuous I think, but I understand. They’re just looking for cover because it’s gonna be their asses that’s gonna get jumped on first. Frankly, I’m surprised it hasn’t happened already.

    So call me whatever the fuck you want. But I am an American Militiaman. My history is long and proud. If you don’t want my money because of that, I could care less.

    But I’m bettin’ you won’t. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • I have to ask what the end goal is of this training. Stop beating around the bush.

      Let’s be up front that divorcing your country will be difficult. Keep an eye on Catalan:

      Oh darn there’s that money thing again. Can’t have a secession or revolution without a finance department.

      • Hi GS,

        I understand your concerns, but it’s not automatically about fitin da gubmit. Given how authorities are capitulating to violence left and right, we are all going to have to step up to that plate as more people realize that we are already WROL in significant ways. In that respect, it is replacing they government when they abdicate their responsibilities.

        I know if I was pinned down by the Leroy Jenkins Methhead Gang, I would really like to hear the sound of that helo a couple of ridges over, and feel even better when it started moving away, knowing what it dropped off to the gang’s rear.

        If those guys did nothing with that exercise other than developing a sense of esprit de corps it was more than worth it.

        You are right though, we do need to work on the economics side. Point well taken.


        • They have that helicopter until Executive Order 13603 appropriates it for a more important mission elsewhere –probably taxiing the agency head who took it.

        • Careful about that “replacing the government” business. You’ll be labeled a statist copsucker before long…unless the one(s) who would do it see this first and refrain in order to prove me wrong.

    Oh, and Sandman, I can’t believe you beat us to it. We’re working on that capability too. Kinda back burner at the moment while the compound is being completed.

    We should get together. How do you feel about rattlesnakes? ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Hi Sandman,

    That is pretty awesome.

    OLP, too bad they are taking away airboats down there. That would be a nice air mobile capability also.


  8. good stuff. Wasn’t aware there were any units that concentrated. From the pix, looks like about 2/3 are keeping up the PT as well. Other 1/3 need to get at it

  9. THAT’S America. Its very existence may yet save the country, and the world to boot. And all without a draft. You da men.

  10. …’by law subject to the Federal government’? When you get to write the rules, you get to set the agenda I suppose but if in fact these ‘folks’ (that would be whatever they call themselves be it militias, groups, neighborhood watch’s, etc.) by default will fight for themselves and NOT Team Fed; that’s the whole purpose I think. Wording and intent are important.

    There’s a lot going on in KY too. My little group doesn’t have aircraft but we did a night nav hike this weekend. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be. A shout out to my brothers in WV!

  12. The legal issues associated with the word “militia” seem like a good enough reason to stop using the word. Germans have/had gun clubs, the Swiss have their Schรผtzenfest. Not exactly equivalent to the American concept of a citizen militia, but close enough to make the point. A rose by any other name.

    Just using the word “militia” requires a lot of energy to defend the concept: arguments, articles, investigations by feds, and so on. It also makes you an actual target,not just a propaganda target, if we have a President with more conviction than our current convenient Marxist, he/she might decide to go all Waco on our asses, and I don’t think we’re ready for that. The first five years will be brutal..

    Incorporate airsoft battles into the training program, anything that can be used to teach group tactics. Again, remove the convenient legal arguments used by liberals, and get more training. Organize real, adult battle groups and set a training schedule. Call them Re-enactors. See comment above about roses and names. Actions are more valuable than arguments..

    • outlawpatriot

      Oh, yeah, that’ll work. If we do that, I’m sure they will leave us alone.

      Hey, I gotta idea. How about we just embrace our history, culture and traditions. Just call a spade a spade and refuse to be disconnected from whence we came.

      Really hard to call men armed with assault rifles in a Huey some kind of club. Just sayin’. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • So, you are saying let them control our language, words and history?
      Uhm, fuck that. We are proud to use our historically correct title.

      We have been actual targets for decades, so no worries there.

      And we are ready for them to go “Full Waco”. Have been for years.
      Maybe that is why they have not. Remember day 1 of Waco?
      Think about that.

      • outlawpatriot

        Roger that. It’s time, way past time, to quit ceding that which is our heart and soul. It’s just about all we have left.

        God damn those that seek my heart and soul. And God damn those who seek to make nice with those who seek my heart and soul.

  14. Substitute Partisan for militia, and it’s a more accurate term for the “freedom fighter.

    We even have a theme song already.

    • outlawpatriot

      Fuck you. We’re not substituting some Euro trash term for what we are. Take your theme song and shove it up your ass.

      You’re one of them faggot. My heart and soul you can’t have.

  15. I like it….thanks for sharing!

  16. Got to say that air capability is really cool

  17. Get to dah choppahs!

  18. You train as you fight correct? In a real situation that we foresee, call it well or shtf you will not be using that Huey. It’s on par with me keeping up on calling in close air support from A-10s. It’s not going to happen.

    • I disagree. I happen to know plenty of pilots and many of them have aircraft including a helo pilot with access to a Helo (not a Huey but a Robinson). General Aviation is more widespread than you think. I understand your point but keep in mind there are those with resources that most of us dont have. They should train to use those resources and even if some of us can only train once with them we get exposure to the equipment and its particulars and that gives us some insight into how to combat that type of equipment. Smoke them if you got them.

    • outlawpatriot

      Another dip shit. You have no idea what’s happening faggot. And you have no idea what’s going to happen.

      • Alan,

        What happened ? You’ve been so eloquent lately in your remarks. Now a fusillade of profanities….”faggot”, “dip shit”, “fuck you”, etc !

        BTW…what sidearm are running and caliber ?

        • outlawpatriot

          I tailor my comments to audience. If they’re cocksuckers, they’re cocksuckers. There’s a lot of them out there and they deserve every derogatory remark I can lay on them. They should be thankful they are not in my presence. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          If I’m pickin’, STI Tac 4.15 in .40. My militia unit is standardized on a Glock 17. I also carry a Colt Defender from time to time. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I think close air support might be trick up there in the Wasatch. Pretty country though. Hiked a beautiful mountain in my youth called Timpanogos. Never seen wildflowers like I did up there or smelled them like that before or since. God speed with or without your friggin air support!

    What happened to “never go full retard”?

  21. Mike Holbrook

    Great time training these groups on the capabilities associated with air mobile transport. For those nay sayers, you just do not realize the capabilities of the general aviation pilots out there.
