Recent comment from “MentalMatt” regarding my recent posting of the Discovery Channel Video “Watchmen Militia Rising“.
Sorry to stick my nose in this but I have met and attended meetings form the Michigan Milita. They have been nothing but law abiding, freedom loving people who do nothing but preach the constitution. Never have they discussed or mentioned anything that could be considered illegal. I’m sorry I didn’t get back you earlier MD, and no I didn’t sent this to your e mail, in my humble opinion this is how you can maybe lose a blog, first it was way too much anti- cop, dude it was non stop, and hell me and BC even made peace, ( he has some good video’s on YouTube, thanx BC), now you have treasured members talking about walking away, Michelle you will be missed. Just my 2 cents. God Bless
Response from M.D. Creekmore
I never said that they were not law abiding or that I did not support what they are trying to do (I just posted the video with no commentary) – what I said in the comments, was that I am not nor do I want to join a “declared” Militia group and that I think we can do more good and have a better chance at taking back and preserving the rights that we have left by other methods and organizations like the NRA, the Tea Party and others. If I did not support what they are trying to do I would not have posted the video and thus given them a load of free publicity here.
Below are a few reasons that I personally, would not want to join such a group but if you or anyone else does that’s great go for it, it’s a personal decision that each will have to make – by the way, they say Gitmo is nice this time of the year…
I’m sure that most members are law abiding citizens and don’t want to kill police or go to war with the U.S. government and that these are just a few of the bad apples – but the federal government see’s all such groups as a potential terrorist threat, and each member as an enemy combatant and most likely have them under surveillance.
As for what you see as “anti-cop” I see as anti police corruption and brutality and by posting about it we are bringing awareness to the problem and offering a ways to protect ourselves and hopefully keeping those officers honest and non abusive in the future. If you think that is wrong then oh well…
This blog is about prepping and keeping my readers (The Wolf Pack) safe and prepared, and that is my number one priority, no matter what that threat may be even if that threat is police brutality or getting caught up in an FBI raid at a Militia compound.
As for “losing a blog”, when the emails in my inbox are over 200 in the past three weeks showing their support for what we are doing here and only 6 complaining – well you can do the math…
If you don’t like what is posted here, and don’t want to skip over what you personally don’t like, then by all means go somewhere else that is better suited to you and your own personal goals. That is your right. I’m not going to change my beliefs or have my right to freedom of speech denied on my own blog just because someone does not like what I have to say.
