Why was he arrested? This is serious stuff.
Is this what will keep happening? They go after people one by one, and take leaders away?
They said they would,,,
One at a time rather than a mass arrest across multiple states, never really picked up on the national news feed...
“They go after people one by one, and take leaders away?”
Yes. This is why the IRA, having dealt w/the English (who historically killed those invited to “negotiate”) developed the two-pronged paradigm of party and army.
E.g., Sinn Fein is the “political wing” of the Provisional IRA. The “soldiers” were the ones who would carry out attacks, but the knowledge of who and where they were was not generally known to those in the Sinn Fein party.
So if the gov decided to suddenly arrest Sinn Fein members, they would not be able to hand over the mechanics who would be free to step up attacks in response to the arrest. I.e., the cell structure.
This doesn’t matter much today, thanks to the Good Friday Agreement, however, the structure is still in place for the remaining radical groups.
If there’s any truth to this story, maybe the Oath Keepers will have to structure themselves the same way.
