Are Some USA Militia Groups
But are they all governed with the same agenda of providing communities with protection from the undead? or are some simply using the pandemic as an excuse for separatism?
ZWN contacted such a group with the aim of finding out.
An undisclosed location nr. Spokane, Washington.
ZWN visited a recent early morning training session of the 7th Battalion of North Idaho's 'Dagger' Militia -- a heavily armed force that, we're told, numbers more than 300.
Along with an awful lot of shouting, shooting, and running, they learn survival skills, advanced undead suppression techniques, and even first-aid lessons, particularly in how to deal with the 'necro-mortosis' afflicted.
Their leader is "Major" Stan Johnson, an unemployed house painter with zero military experience.
With little prompting, Johnson launches into heated monologues about the government. Dropping buzz words such as 'healthcare, socialism and freedom.' He mentions Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and of course Barack Obama. However, when I spoke to him further about these subjects, he seemed to be unable to expand on them. Instead, he simply repeats them, which suggests some sort of indoctrination.
I did however, find Johnson to be a likeable guy. Loud but friendly. I also was impressed by the sincerity and commitment of the 'Dagger' militia. However, it did not divert from the unease I had that these people were playing army dress up with little or no actual hands on experience. and using an arsenal of weapons most police forces would be happy to have. I bid them farewell and moved on.
The rise in the militia across America
Their wholesale rise in popularity across the USA can at least partially be attributed to the ongoing war on necro-mortosis. Although the USA has been affected only marginally compared to the rest of the world, fear and a sense of survival play host to the significant rise in self appointed, legal armies.
Second amendment and the undead
"Second amendment issues," says Johnson. "The government wants to take away our right to bare arms." I suggest to Johnson that no government, including the current one, has suggested such a thing. That perhaps certain special interest groups are in fact fanning the flames of fear to protect their own self interests. I also offer that the undead rising and its very real threat, could be used politically to motivate groups such as the 'Dagger' militia.
A large amount of the 'Dagger' militia's membership is unemployed. The counties economy, like everywhere else, has been hurt badly in recent years, and unemployment hovers near 9 percent. Most take unemployment from the state. They argue it's insurance... not welfare.
"As long as they adhere to the constitution of Idaho and adhere to the laws, we don't have a problem with them organizing," said Gabe Milpas, undersheriff of Spokane County, Washington.
But the "real" authorities were quick to say they would not be calling on the militia in an emergency.
"In the event of a mortosis outbreak in the region, we want to make sure we know the people that are coming to our aid, so we do our background checks," Milpas said. "We would not call them."
