‘Million Militia Man March’ Planner Arrested
Zachary Roth digs up something I’d nearly forgotten about. In April 2009, Kristopher “Pale Horse” Sickles posted a risible YouTube video beseeching fellow militia members to descend on Washington for a “Million Militia Man March.”
A peaceful demonstration of at least a million — hey, if we can get 10 million, even better — but at least one million armed militia men marching on Washington. A peaceful demonstration. No shooting, no one gets hurt. Just a demonstration. The only difference from any typical demonstration is we will all be armed.
Today, the 27-year-old Sickles is one of nine militia members charged with conspiracy to overthrow the government. Also, I can’t help but notice that the commentary about this on fairly mainstream conservative sites is more skeptical of the FBI than of Sickles and the militias. Neither the left nor the right takes this stuff as seriously as law enforcement does.
