OKLAHOMA CITY – Frustrated by recent political setbacks, tea party leaders and some conservative members of the Oklahoma Legislature say they would like to create a new volunteer militia to help defend against what they believe are improper federal infringements on state sovereignty.

Tea party movement leaders say they've discussed the idea with several supportive lawmakers and hope to get legislation next year to recognize a new volunteer force. They say the unit would not resemble militia groups that have been raided for allegedly plotting attacks on law enforcement officers.

"Is it scary? It sure is," said tea party leader Al Gerhart of Oklahoma City, who heads an umbrella group of tea party factions called the Oklahoma Constitutional Alliance. "But when do the states stop rolling over for the federal government?"

Thus far, the discussions have been exploratory. Even the proponents say they don't know how an armed force would be organized nor how a state-based militia could block federal mandates. Critics also asserted that the force could inflame extremism, and that the National Guard already provides for the state's military needs.

Yep. It's a legit story. Figures that those idiots in OK after getting told no state militia would turn to the tea baggers.

If this happens and goes from exploratory discussion to actual thing, it's gonna be ugly.

Thats true, but its truly amazing how the Tea Bag sympathizers in this forum would like for most of America to believe that this is the right way how to handle things, all it takes is for another crowd to gather in support of the health care bill and things will get ugly. I can't think of anyone on the left doing something as stupid as this and taking things this far.

Ever see the movie "Southland Tales"?

If states have militias, that movie could be a reality.

If anyone takes up arms to oppose the government they need to be dealt with, I said before and I'll say it again, these compost Tea Bags are extremists, they are not oppressed people seeking equality or liberation thus no justification exists for them to take up weapons "to defend their rights," they're just trying to intimidate and their actions are just like the secessionists prior to the Civil War who wanted to "defend" the southern way of life.

Are there unarmed militias?

Dems fled the Union rather than give up their slaves, remember?

Well, let's see.

A state doesn't like a legislation created by the duly elected representative government of the United States...

So they form an army to stop said legislation from being instituted?

Hmm, what does this remind me of? something from the mid-19th Century...

Why, I do declare, them there people are planning treason.

Yes, Frank, and we all know that the mostly southern-based Democratic party of the mid 1800's is EXACTLY the same as the progressive Democrats of 2010.

Right?

The "Dems" of the Civil War era were very much like the Republicans of today, the only thing the Dems of the Civil War era and today share is just the name, do your history homework.

Ah yes, the chameleon like Democrat Party; the Zelig Democrat Party. They're with Jesus, Gandhi, the Founding Fathers, they fought against slavery, they're fiscal Conservatives, they're whatever is cool and historic, but they are never ever wrong

OPINION: The GOP&#8217;s Neo-Confederate Problem, Rewriting The Civil War | News One

Indeed, the compost Tea Baggers are sick, the author made a great point when he said:

Can you imagine if states in Germany began showing off the Nazi flag? What if a state in Germany declared Nazi history month or people began bringing Nazi flags to protests supported by a political party like Tea Party protesters use Confederate flags. The confederate flag has been used as symbol for racism both before and after the Civil War and to African Americans, shares the same connotations as the Swastika.

Yepper Frank!

You're absolutely right. After all, neither party has changed at all in the last 150 years. Not one single iota.

The Democrats of the 1860's were obviously the same as the people you label "Fascist" and "Socialist" now. They didn't fight the Civil War based on what they thought was Federal over-reach, or anything like that, right?

After all, we know that anything that ever went wrong in history is the fault of Progressives, right? At least that's how Ann Coulter tells us history went.

Has there ever been militias forming over health care bills? What do we know about militias in America? Is it necessary for the Tea baggers to form a militia? What is forming a militia going to achieve other than a group of angry, confederate flag waving Repub jockeys?

OMG
We sure don't want to see a bunch of angry, flag waving people.
shit, we had to watch eight years of flag burning, banshee yelling anti-war protesters protesting against a duly elected President, but hey, I suppose that was then and we didn't have a Democrat boy-king sitting as President like today.

it's an attempt to paint them like the nutjobs the FEDS cracked down upon a couple weeks ago.

It's nothing new. It's just more foaming at the mouth ignorance from the usual suspects.

Yep. It's a legit story. Figures that those idiots in OK after getting told no state militia would turn to the tea baggers.

If this happens and goes from exploratory discussion to actual thing, it's gonna be ugly.
Maybe they can call their first unit the "Timothy McVeigh Memorial Brigade".
