The Dawn of a new era / Beginning of the End?
With the Internet now officially more popular then television and a means for any one any where to be seen and heard and tell their story, this is surely the the Dawn of a new era, but where it takes us is still very unclear!
Las Vegas police-killer made disturbing video as The Joker, with crazy extreme rants and vowed to 'blow up whole countries'. White Supremacists groups once thought as the biggest threats turn out are the least threats. It's the every day person to worry about and is invisible to law enforcement that is the biggest threat.
While Jarad Miller and his wife Amanda have been compared to white supremacists, they actually aliened more with anti-government groups. The white supremacist comparison was created by the media. Anti-government groups are more common and so is the growing number of militia's in America. Take for example the recent Stand-off between the Federal Government and the Clive Bundy Ranch where hundreds of supporters and militia people came to aide Clive Bundy!
But where did all this begin? Perhaps it began at the The Waco siege (also known as the Waco Massacre). A private compound belonging to the religious group Branch Davidians was invaded by federal and Texas state law enforcement, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the military between February 28 and April 19, 1993. Resulting in the compound being burned down and deaths of four agents and six Branch Davidians after a a 51-day stand-off. It was the first time the Government attacked citizens on private property with all out war tactics.
However this anti-government movement started, it's clearly not going away and in fact only getting bigger. Behind this movement is the wide support for the 2nd Amendment, which critics are quick to claim is also the cause. But has our government become more of a tyrant and oppressor? We see even small towns with no crime investing in full armor trucks, helicopters, AK-47's for their police forces. And there is talk about using drones in police work too. Does any one really think this is going away? Can any one really disagree this is the Dawn of a New Era and perhaps even the beginning of the end.
