JACKSON, GA.In the woods south of Atlanta, John and Yvette DeMaria are with about a dozen camouflage-wearing, heavily armed Americans huffing and puffing as they scramble to navigate the sprawling piece of property where they train, one weekend a month, to ward off enemies foreign or domestic.
The DeMarias are with the Georgia Security Force militia, whose members are relieved that Donald Trump won the presidency but believe it would be a mistake to lay down their arms just because he is in the White House. So they continue to take to the woods to be ready for whatever may come, whether its an economic crisis that spawns unrest or Islamic extremists carrying out attacks on American soil.....

1. Why would they? Militias are a hedge against a corrupt government. ANY corrupt government.
2. Trump never asked them to.
Digging deep into their “bag of enemies” to scare the “normies”.
90’s the militia was the big, bad enemy that had to be watched.
00’s they had Bush, Bush, Bush.
early 10’s they had the Tea Party
Now they are deciding to bring the “scary white guys, with guns” back out because the “Trump, Russia, Alt-Right, Racists” isn’t working.
Any “journalist” who cites Southern Poverty Law Center as a credible and respected source of information deserves to have the daylights beaten out of them.
After reading the article, and only seeing mention of “AR-15s and handguns”, I conclude the people were lightly armed.
Lightly armed but well armed.
And Trump will not be around but 4 years, 8 at most, then who knows who will be in. The way the stinking DumbOcrats of the RINO party are going, the House changes next year, and then the Senate. Then the president could be next because they have all failed to carry through with every lie they told us.
Militias are a good thing. I trust them much more than the Islamic terrorist training camps that’s in this country.
The entire premise is wrong.
Militias are far more likely to come to the aid of a beleaguered Trump in the course of a coup attempt.
The Militias are mostly Trump supporters.
“To arms! To arms!”
Always, “To arms!”
America’s militia marched side by side with General George Washington.
The article agrees with you. The article’s assumption was that since the majority of militia members are thought to be Trump supporters, they were expected to fade away after the election of “one of their own”, and yet they’re not. They’re not fading away not because they don’t trust Trump, but because they apparently believe (with justification, IMHO) that there is still plenty of threat to Liberty out there.
Doesn’t matter who is in the White House.
The 2nd amendment guarantees the right to keep and bear arms.
And it is a deterrent against rouge politicians.
La Marseillaise - English lyrics
Arise children of the fatherland
The day of glory has arrived
Against us tyranny’s
Bloody standard is raised
Listen to the sound in the fields
The howling of these fearsome soldiers
They are coming into our midst
To cut the throats of your sons and consorts
To arms citizens Form your battalions
Let impure blood
Water our furrows
What do they want this horde of slaves
Of traitors and conspiratorial kings?
For whom these vile chains
These long-prepared irons?
Frenchmen, for us, ah! What outrage
What methods must be taken?
It is us they dare plan
To return to the old slavery!
What! These foreign cohorts!
They would make laws in our courts!
What! These mercenary phalanxes
Would cut down our warrior sons
Good Lord! By chained hands
Our brow would yield under the yoke
The vile despots would have themselves be
The masters of destiny
Tremble, tyrants and traitors
The shame of all good men
Tremble! Your parricidal schemes
Will receive their just reward
Against you we are all soldiers
If they fall, our young heros
France will bear new ones
Ready to join the fight against you
Frenchmen, as magnanimous warriors
Bear or hold back your blows
Spare these sad victims
That they regret taking up arms against us
But not these bloody despots
These accomplices of Bouillé
All these tigers who pitilessly
Ripped out their mothers’ wombs
We too shall enlist
When our elders’ time has come
To add to the list of deeds
Inscribed upon their tombs
We are much less jealous of surviving them
Than of sharing their coffins
We shall have the sublime pride
Of avenging or joining them
Drive on sacred patriotism
Support our avenging arms
Liberty, cherished liberty
Join the struggle with your defenders
Under our flags, let victory
Hurry to your manly tone
So that in death your enemies
See your triumph and our glory!
It was a requirement that you joined and drilled in the militia units back then.
Mireille Mathieu singing La Marseillaise (with lyrics)
Men 17 to 55 right?
Roberto Alagna - La Marseillaise
That would be no foresight.
The present situation can last at best 8 years.
It’s foolish to think that someday we’re not going to need the training again.
Better to stay in readiness than to have to retrain and gain lost knowledge again.
Then the enemy will find us unprepared and easy pickings.
