DHS report warns of possible 4th of July militia gathering in Washington, D.C

Source: Yahoo News

WASHINGTON — The Department of Homeland Security is warning of a possible violent militia rally on July 4 in Washington, D.C., according to a law enforcement document obtained by Yahoo News.

The report, dated July 1 and produced by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis, says that FBI reporting indicates that suspected violent extremists may be planning to attend a large public gathering for the July 4 holiday on Capitol Hill.

As of mid-June, a private social media platform contained a discussion from four suspected militia members about the “Million Man Patriots Gathering,” the DHS report says, citing FBI intelligence.

25. Exactly!

If there is a militia rally on July 4th these MAGA morons are in for a surprise if they think it is going to be a repeat of January 6th! Like you said Biden is not going to be arm and arm with them like Trump was. They will be met with tear gas, rubber bullets, live rounds and the cops will be backed up by the National Guard. No kid gloves treatment this time! I say this on the assumption that Biden is going to be prepared for any contingencies and not just sit back and think "Oh they wouldn't do anything bad.".

to "get back on track" is a civil war to get rid of all libtards/socialists. The MAGA crowd is too uneducated to
realize they are part of Qrump's and republican's fascist movement. We're not out of the woods yet with them.

22. To these types of people their fantasy of a civil war is one that they are doing all of the shooting

In the past 10 years visiting a Conservative forum daily, I have heard this stuff hundreds of times. Since these people never venture far from their comfort zones they are under the impression that they represent the will of an overwhelming majority of the American people. What I have never heard from them is what happens after their civil war. They all want to be patriotic heroes in their fascist dreams and the war is a goal in itself. Once the liberals and the minorities are put in their places, then the world will automatically be right. Make no mistake, the militia types think that your and my place is six feet under and they would be happy to crown themselves in violent glory to make that happen.

Donald Trump is their Jeff Davis and they see Jan. 6 as their first battle of the war. They are waiting on a Bobby Lee to come to lead them to glory with a rebel flag in one hand and a beer in the other.

13. The article does mention a few reasons why this event might not be much of anything

FBI and DHS analyzes hotel and bus reservations and noted that they are down 30% from normal years. Also, no large blocks of hotel reservations or bus reservations were made that could indicate a large scale event like a “million ‘patriot’ march”. Hopefully this turns out to be nothing, but it’s always good to be prepared and plan for the worse in situations like these.

I love how these supposed patriots want to overthrow our democracy so that they can impose their minority views on the majority of us. Don’t they realize that is contrary to what the constitution stands for? Oh wait, when they say they believe in the constitution and they’re patriots they only mean they believe in a loose interpretation of the second amendment that they think grants them unbridled access to military weapons.

Their original plans were to go after state capitols, which are much harder to protect.............

Of course, you are dealing with National Guard which takes 24 hours to mobilize, and many of them Trump sympathizers.
Same with local police departments..............

Another possible tactic is to let word leak out about a possible confrontation and see what kind of response is staged.

Besides, the Capitol will be closed for the holiday. All the elected reps and sens are home now, and even office staff have the weekend off. How are they going to string up Mike Pence if he's not there? In effigy?

Jan 6th was their one and only chance, Capitol cops are pissed and if one of them even comes near the facility, its game over for them. So that fight is over with.

The fight now is purely voting rights, especially Repug legislatures being allowed to overturn the results.

50. Don't be too smug: one of them gouged out a cop's eye with his bare hands. Lots of violence....

…against the Capitol Police, many lasting injuries. One immediately shoved over a woman cop so hard she lost consciousness from a concussion — turns out he has a long record of slugging or strangling women into unconsciousness. In fact, it turns out a whole bunch of those proud patriots have rap sheets for violence against women.

The violence was real. There was a boat filled with weapons waiting on the Potomac. Two pipe bombs were recovered & still not traced.

If the House hadn’t been evacuated in time, I believe many of the legislators and their staff would have been killed outright, regardless of political party. Pence and Pelosi were on the hit list, and with them gone — well, we know what TFG would have done.

Mom’s basement? The “shaman” maybe. But there were a whole slew of people with white collar careers there.

I'm not surprised at all. There's a subset of folks around here who are out for blood and it seems like they'd cheerfully watch law enforcement beat down (or worse) people they disagree with, even if they've done nothing wrong.

that the majority of us won't fight. I mean, they are going to get shot and die. Is Trump worth that?? When they are nursing broken bones and soft tissue injuries behind bars, are they going to think, "I'm a hero!" No, they're going to be begging for pain meds, which will not come because of logistics. What'll they do if the paramedic says, "I think you're gay," and refuses to treat them? And remember, Covid 19, D for Donald, is lurking there just waiting for them to walk by.

Go ahead and have your dumbass rally for Trump--but, don't even dream that we will let you do Coup Attempt No. 2. This is our country.
