This is why we need drones that dispense clouds of MDMA in breathable or skin-soluble form.

Seriously, look at the folks there. Fat, middle aged, low IQ, angry fundamentalist unemployable white guys. They start something, and the actual law enforcement officers will finish them off, quickly.

What a bunch of low life losers.

The “three percent” thing is also not accurate. You only had around three to five percent of the total population under arms at any one time, but the aggregate (which includes militia) is far, far higher (I did the math myself last year based on statistics from several sources). Also, Washington and Greene would have been hard pressed to provide for any more Continental troops then they had.

These fat fucks so badly want to waste cops they can taste it. After all, what good are their eleventy-hundred guns if they can’t use them.

Spokesperson for self induced lobotomy. I wonder where the money comes from for them to be able to take a vacation to “LOONTOWN”. SS? Disability? Pension? Welfare? I mean that’s the burning question every Tea Party/GOP/Wing Nut/responsible racist/scared feller/ asks when there is a protest elsewhere.
They ain’t poor! They got gunz!

So who is Mike Vanderbeogh?

The Washington Post ran a profile of Mike Vanderboegh, a 57-year-old former militiaman from Alabama, who disapproves of the new Affordable Care Act. Vanderboegh, who describes himself as a “Christian libertarian” and has been part of various clandestine militia groups, has been encouraging those who agree with him to throw bricks through the windows of Democratic offices nationwide.

It’s about what you’d expect from someone like this, and Vanderboegh is unapologetic about his extremism. In his interview with the Post, he makes multiple references to people who “are armed and are capable of making such resistance possible and perhaps even initiating a civil war.”

Given the threat of domestic terrorism, all of this is disconcerting, to be sure. But Josh Marshall flags the punch-line from the profile:

Vanderboegh said he once worked as a warehouse manager but now lives on government disability checks. He said he receives $1,300 a month because of his congestive heart failure, diabetes and hypertension.

I see. So, Vanderboegh has a physical ailment, so instead of working, he’s turned to the government to supply him with a modest income. Whether Vanderboegh appreciates the irony of a radical libertarian, who demands that a small government leave people alone, getting taxpayer-financed checks from the government not to work, is unclear.

That’s who.

So another hypocrite that rails against the big bad government while benefiting from it. Typical. You know what. I don’t have a problem helping guys like this because I have a heart condition myself and know it’s tough to live with but goddamn it stop acting like the government is so evil if you’re going to use the benefits it gives you.

Mike Vanderbeogh, leader of the militia group Three Percenters

No he’s not. There’s no militia group named “Three Percenters.”

There IS a white nationalist gang of domestic terrorists named “Three Percenters,” headed up by Mike Vanderbeogh, but they are NOT a Militia.

It’s a movement that provides the ideology for many/most militia groups. The Threepers themselves are factionalized, another bunch inspired by Christian Kerodin, a convicted scam artist who is pushing the ‘Citadel’ fantasy. Kerodin and Vanderboegh hate each other, and are the main axis of the Bundystan internal strife.

The Vicious Babushka,

Lets see how tough this fanatic is when the government decides to actually send send armed swat team out there. He wouldn’t last a day in another civil war.

GEEZE… I just googled Kerodin, went to his site, and now I really wish we had a shower here at work… I just feel slimy.

These ‘tribes’ make for interesting ethnography. This link is a google cache to Vanderboegh’s home site (I don’t give him hits). The article is his first long explanation of what he took back from Bundystan. I didn’t bother with the 1 hr video. You can find 6 or 7 factions just within that operation, not counting the LE side:

Bundy family and some supposedly ‘hired’ security
Oathkeepers (2 factions—Stewart Rhodes/Jerry DeLemus)
Militia (many—some near-outcasts)
Ryan Payne MFF assets, later embraced by Bundy, suspected by others
Vanderboegh Threepers
Kerodin Threepers
Constitutional Sheriff types—Sheriff Mack

These assholes are really at each other’s throats. More to come

Add to that the fact that a small army was the 18th Century model, which the Napoleonic wars effectively ended with universal conscription.

IOW, an army composed of 3% of the population could win - eventually, after losing a lot, and largely because of the French aid - because they faced a similarly small army.
