The Trump Militia Libertarians
The militia movement, an umbrella term that encompasses paramilitary activists and groups with strong anti-government leanings. they had a few things in common — , anger at the federal government, and a strong belief in their individual right to own weapons and use those weapons to defend themselves against perceived government overreach or a threat to their community.
Fear and anxiety are predictors of people — particularly young people — turning towards extremism and violence. the pandemic is perfect for radicalism. “We know that unemployment does not lead to greater risk of engaging in extremist behaviors but economic precarity does,” she said. The country has lived on the edge of economic and social precarity. What if our institutions crumble? What if we can’t get our normal lives back? Extremist ideologies can offer meaning, purpose and a narrative of control when everything feels out of it.
With Trump saying both implicitly and explicitly that militias or even just armed individuals are the only thing standing between America and the chaos of a leftist takeover of the country, the promise of control becomes even stronger. It becomes a call to arms — one that more Americans, sitting at home without school or even work, may try to answer.
TLDR Trump is egging on the formation of pro regime paramiltiary gangs (a la Latin American gangs) who target leftists that oppose Trump.
Very concerning stuff. You don’t have to look any further than the early Rittenhouse threads in this sub to see the militia sympathizers trying to recruit more members.
