The antigovernment movement has experienced a resurgence, growing quickly since 2008, when President Obama was elected to office. Factors fueling the antigovernment movement in recent years include changing demographics driven by immigration, the struggling economy and the election of the first African-American president.
In 2016, the Southern Poverty Law Center identified 998 anti-government groups that were active the prior year. Of these groups, 276 were militias and the remainder includes “common-law” courts, publishers, ministries and citizens’ groups.
Generally, antigovernment groups define themselves as opposed to the “New World Order,” engage in groundless conspiracy theorizing, or advocate or adhere to extreme antigovernment doctrines. Antigovernment groups do not necessarily advocate or engage in violence or other criminal activities, though some have. Many warn of impending government violence or the need to prepare for a coming revolution. Many antigovernment groups are not racist.
A particularly prominent conspiracy in the antigovernment movement is that the United Nations, which is usually seen as spearheading the “New World Order,” is imposing a global plan, called Agenda 21, to take away citizens’ property rights. There is a UN program with that name to develop sustainable communities across the globe. Agenda 21 was agreed to by political leaders from dozens of countries, including the first President Bush. But in typical fashion, these antigovernment activists have twisted it into a global conspiracy.
Other notable conspiracies found in the antigovernment movement include the idea that the government is secretly planning to round up citizens and place them in concentration camps run by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA. Another conspiracy alleges that there are plans to merge the United States, Canada and Mexico into a single country. Fears of impending gun control or weapons confiscations, either by the government or international agencies, also run rampant in antigovernment circles. As a result, many antigovernment activists believe that being well armed is a must. The militia movement engages in paramilitary training aimed at protecting citizens from this feared impending government crackdown.
The antigovernment movement hit its previous high of 858 groups in 1996, the year after the Oklahoma City bombing. Timothy McVeigh, the Oklahoma City bomber, was motivated by extreme antigovernment beliefs then circulating in the militia movement. He was also inspired by the racist novel, The Turner Diaries, modeling his attack on a scene from the book.
The antigovernment movement of the 1990s, typified by the proliferation of militias, was fueled by a string of incidents, including the 1993 government assault on the Branch Davidian compound, that were seen as evidence of an out-of-control government willing to attack citizens. Other factors included the struggling economy in the early 1990s, particularly in Western states, and the election of President Clinton, who was perceived by these activists as a liberal intent on seizing their weapons.
A subset of the antigovernment movement—sovereign citizens—is a growing force. Sovereign citizens believe that they, not judges, juries, law enforcement or elected officials, get to decide which laws to obey and which to ignore, and they don’t think they should have to pay taxes. Sovereign citizen ideology is complex and bizarre and they are best known for clogging up the courts with indecipherable filings and liens targeting public officials. When cornered, many have lashed out in rage, frustration and, in the most extreme cases, acts of deadly violence, usually directed against government officials. In May 2010, for example, a father-son team of sovereignsmurdered two police officers with an assault rifle when they were pulled over on the interstate while traveling through West Memphis, Ark.
The sovereign citizens movement is rooted in racism and anti-Semitism, though most sovereigns, many of whom are African American, are unaware of their beliefs’ origins. In the early 1980s, the sovereign citizens movement attracted primarily white supremacists and anti-Semites, mainly because sovereign theories originated in groups that saw Jews as working behind the scenes to manipulate financial institutions and control the government. Most early sovereigns, and some of those who are still on the scene, believed that being white was a prerequisite to becoming a sovereign citizen. They argued that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, which guaranteed citizenship to African Americans and everyone else born on U.S. soil, also made black Americans permanently subject to federal and state governments, unlike themselves.
If I was a “Confederate”, I would wonder why BUNTING HAS SO MANY MILITIA GROUPS ON HIS FB PAGE! Just how does the SPLC find and identify “MILITIAS” without “operatives” on the inside faking as being a part of that group?
Eighteen years ago, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote then-Attorney General Janet Reno to warn about extremists in the militia movement, saying that the “mixture of armed groups and those who hate” was “a recipe for disaster.”
If you support the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms or think the government is too big, you just might be a hater. The Southern Poverty Law Center, which for some reason, keeps tabs on every hate group in the country, lists guns rights advocacy groups and patriots in the same category as neo-Nazis and Black Panthers.
Consider how absurd that is. Just because you hate gun control it doesn’t make you a hater. And thinking that the federal government has overstepped its Constitutional boundaries doesn’t make you a bigot. The SPLC sees it different as their website clearly shows it considers pro-rights and pro-American groups as evil cabals of racial hatred.
Senior SPLC ding-dong, Mark Potok explains why they fear the gun groups so much:
“Guns and gun control are so much at the heart of the radical right.”
So in essence, supporting the 2nd Amendment puts you on the radical right, and being there means you are a racist even if you never express any racist viewpoints. The SPLC is making this flawed-logic causal relationship: Hate groups love guns so people that love guns are in hate groups.
READ AGAIN THE TEXT ABOVE…WILLIAM R. BUNTING SO CALLED “CONFEDERATE” IS A MEMBER OF A GROUP THAT CONSIDERS “CONFEDERATES AND MILITIA” WHAT?
FAMILY AND GOD…USING ROBERT E. LEE AS THE MOST HONORABLE REPRESENTATIVE OF ALL THINGS CONFEDERATE COMPARED TO WILLIAM R. BUNTING
“The World Congress of Families said it advocates for the “natural family,” being a mother and a father in marriage with children.
“That’s the definition of God. We are not free to make a definition of marriage,” said Dr. Janice Shaw Crouse, the executive director. “That’s the established definition as we have said over and over again, that has prevailed throughout history and across cultures. We are unapologetic in our support of the natural family. But that does not mean disrespect for anyone else.”
The World Congress of Families has faced accusations that it is anti-gay. The Southern Poverty Law Center has put it on a list of “hate groups” because of its anti-LGBT views. The Human Rights Campaign, an LGBT rights group, has accused its director promoting extremist anti-gay policies in other countries including Uganda and Russia.
QUESTION TO READERS…WOULD ROBERT E. LEE BE “PRO-GAY” AND A PRACTICING AND OPEN SODOMITE LIKE BUNTING? ANTI-FAMILY AS DESCRIBED BY THE LGBT? SO THEN I ASK WHAT IS A “REAL CONFEDERATE” WHEN IT COMES TO MARRIAGE AND FAMILY AND GOD?
Bunting is a HATE GOD and Jesus Christ in contrast to Robert E. Lee. He is also a “Mother Earth” worshiper…whoever that is! When as a “Confederate” he admits to using women to “f–k” for orgasm, his “new wife”…PAGAN MARRIAGE (is that Confederate?) which he states he “sodomizes”…uses toy’s over SKYPE to “share sodomy together” PER TEXT TO ME and DIGITALLY DOCUMENTED
I ask what does that say TO YOU as “Confederates”? Because I would stake my soul on the fact that ANY so called “Confederate” that sanctions ANY of the above per family and sodomy not to mention PEDOPHILIA that Robert E. Lee would personally and eternally ex-communicate William R. Bunting from the Confederacy right into the bowels of hell. For sure…Lee would also state emphatically that the Southern Poverty Law Center is not the least SOUTHERN in any way shape or form. So what does that make Bunting…a Confederate?
Google “Nazi’s Sodomy Pederasts” and realize BUNTING identifies with being a NAZI! Calling me a “JEW” when in fact I am not but that is ok…because Jesus was a real one and Lee acknowledged Him for who He was and IS.
So again…take your pick because Robert E. Lee and William R. Bunting can’t both be “Confederates” because their spiritual believes are totally opposite in ALL THINGS and being Bunting is a SPLC member as well as a American Indian Movement member of RAPING MURDERING PEDOPHILES that should by “definition” make him all things NOT Confederate because Lee was NONE OF THOSE nor did he ever justify that among his own men!
Another question to all Confederate men and women. Is there ANY justification for a REAL MAN to rape a woman? NO or YES! Bunting states the following as a “CONFEDERATE”!
“Ummm…any woman raped by Russell Means or Bill Cosby should be grateful… I mean these are real men who should be able to take what they want from any woman they please… If she was a real woman she would be begging for more”- Bill “Mr. Explorer Of Every Orifis and Proud Confederate” – Bunting
So how many Confederate men reading this agree with “Confederate Bunting” and if you do…please send a comment on this blog and identify yourself PERSONALLY for all to see that you and Bunting are “BROTHERS” in this act of MURDERING THE SPIRIT OF A WOMAN!
Bunting also stated to me…that “PRAIRIE NIGGERS” who he defined as all Native American’s NOT Cherokee DESERVED TO BE RAPED…INCLUDING CHILDREN and MURDERED.
So is this the “CONFEDERATE MIND” revealed again through Bill Bunting and if YOU agree…please state so with your name so you can be identified and that you are ONE with Bunting in this too.
I know Indian Country more then most not that any will believe me over Billy Boy. I know the “Prairie Niggers” fought to their almost literal extermination more then the 5 Civilized and that is a historical fact. What was done to them was PURE EVIL and SATANIC via the Trail of Tears…murders…rapes…and things not recorded except in the sight of GOD for which those guilty of those acts are now in HELL which by the way…BUNTING said…”there is no hell stupid”!
My apologies for offending those “Cherokee” other then Bunting as my comment was based upon his saying what he said about “Prairie Niggers”. I call it “tit for tat”. When on radio I interviewed “Dine” Code Talkers who saved in my estimate over 100,000 WHITE Marine lives in the pacific not to mention the Lakota and other Code Talkers in Europe who did the same in saving WHITE LIVES.
I partook of Veteran’s Pow Wows among the Oglala and know their history and WHY they are not “sucking off the White man’s tit” like other “Nations” and that is because the TETON peoples destroyed over and over the White troops that came at them including Bunting’s HERO…and serial RAPIST AND MURDERER George Armstrong Custer.
Truth be known…by TETON definition…one is only a LAKOTA if their father is a FULL BLOOD including mother. There are only 128 FULL BLOODS left among the Oglala on Pine Ridge. The rest are 1/2…maybe some 3/4 and for sure a lot LESS and who look and act WHITE…like the Cherokee and most other Nations who have had their identities “spermagated” into only existing in name with little or no blood. That is why INTERMARRIAGE was NOT a Native American tradition but was a White one. The more the blood is diluted…the more the “People” vanish and that is the goal of the Government and always has been.
Back to Bunting being a “Confederate as compared to YOU and ROBERT E. LEE and what he and you and Bunting believe and more so WHO YOU ARE IN YOUR HEART BEFORE GOD.
If there would be a “article” that represents BUNTING on the issue of GAY/HOMOSEXUAL/SODOMITE justification and the targeting of those by the SPLC it would be this one. Read and learn!
In ending… for BUNTING TO SAY HE IS A CONFEDERATE WHILE BEING A MEMBER OF THE SPLC IS A SIGN OF INSANITY BECAUSE THERE IS NOT ONE THING THAT THE SPLC BELIEVES THAT IS “CONFEDERATE”…
And remember…how the SPLC views MILITIAS and they have to get their DATA FROM SOMEONE WHO IS ONE OF THEM…SAY WILLIAM R. BUNTING!
It is called COENTELPRO…having an “operative” on the inside acting like he is ONE OF YOU…say “CONFEDERATE”!
I leave you with THIS about the SPLC and a MEMBER OF NAMED BILL WILLIAM R. BUNTING!
Quick “Factoid” About keeping in MIND that The New World Order is represented by the SPIRITUALITY OF WILLIAM R. BUNTING and the SPLC who he is ONE WITH!
Randall Williams, a former SPLC employee, described his experience with the organization, “We were sharing information with the FBI, the police, undercover agents. Instead of defending clients and victims, we were more of a super snoop organization, an arm of law enforcement.”17
The SPLC’s interest in law enforcement is most ironic, given its efforts to undercut the rule of law with respect to immigration. Ironic too, in this regard, is the endorsement of an unrepentant terrorist by SPLC’s spin-off group, tolerance.org. The person in question is Bill Ayers (yes, the same one who’s President Obama’s friend). According to tolerance.org, Ayers has “a rich vision of teaching that interweaves passion, responsibility and self-reflection.”18
This is the same man who admitted planting bombs to protest the Vietnam War. He avoided prosecution only because of legal technicalities. In an interview with The New York Times in 2001, he stated, “I don’t regret setting the bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.”19 Ayers and his radical companions, according to FBI informant Larry Grathwohl, planned for a communist revolution which, in their estimate….
As the SPLC aims to work with police, one wonders for what ultimate purpose. Perhaps a police state? From psychology we learn of the tactic of “projection,” whereby one who obsessively accuses others of faults is often himself far more guilty of those vices.
And that includes BILL BUNTING because NO ONE can tell me or convince me that BUNTING IS NOT A MOLE because of who he admitted to me in PRIVATE that he and FAMILY were members of!
