The UWM Student Militia

So apparently, a group of students at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee thinks OMG THE SOCIALISTS ARE TAKING OVER AMERICA!!111!! and so they’ve formed a student militia on Facebook. Here’s the stated goals of the student militia:

This group is all about the 2nd amendment, after all, this right shall not be infringed. For all those who are sick and tired of socialists trying to take over our country, this group is for you and the time to take a stand is now. I love this country with all my heart and that’s why it pains me to think about how the socialists/liberals in congress are ruining America and now they are trying to elect one President. I say, too many Americans have died ensuring that people around the world may be able to enjoy the very freedoms that the liberals in Congress are trying to take away. This is why I’m forming this group.
“A well regulated militia, being necessary for the security of a free state; the right of the people to keep and bare arms shall not be infringed”

-note that this is not an attempt to actually form a militia, but rather an attempt to rekindle the spark in the American spirit that has apparently been dying in the recent years.

Let us never turn our backs on the enemy for that is when they are the strongest.

Now what I found interesting is the blurb that the UWM Student Militia is not an attempt to form an actual militia, yet take a look at the logo they’ve chosen for their “militia:”

Now call me crazy – and you wouldn’t be the first to do so – but if you’re not trying to form an actual militia, then why use a picture of an M4A1 with an M203 grenade launcher as your group’s logo?

  1. Check out the group members. One of the guys is wearing a kilt! Now, I’m part Scottish, and I enjoy swinging in the breeze as much as the next guy, but if I joined a pseudo-militia I sure as heck wouldn’t pose for my mug shot in a kilt showing off my leg. Folks might not believe I was a serious bad-ass gun-totin’ conservative.

    Just saying…

  2. Oh, for goodness’ sake! This is ridiculous. Thank you, Julio for sending me this. I know exactly who to send it off to.

  3. Be careful what you all say. The founder is a highly unstable individual (just personal observation–it’s pretty obvious when you talk to him) and some of the members have some real issues as well, possibly medical. They sort of concern me and other people, but then again they aren’t very organized.

  4. Wow, what a nut job! I try not to be afraid of what my fellow citizens, but people like this make it hard. It’s still not going to stop me from being a god-hating commie, though.

  5. Well needless to say I was in the mood for a good laugh and as usual you liberal democrats follow through with your senseless comments. Let me start things off by replying to the first person, the one who posted this blog. This may come as a surprise to you but you are wrong. Now I’m not one to call someone out without being so kind as to tell them why they are wrong. Your belief that I am actually trying to form a militia is moronic at best. The rifle that is displayed on the group page is not an M4-A1 with an M203 grenade launcher but rather an AR-15 with an 870 MCS shotgun attachment. For all of you who may not know, the AR-15 is only semi-auto which makes it no different functionally than any semi-auto hunting rifle except that it’s lighter and more compact which makes it easier to use while in a tree stand.

    Now as for your belief that I wish to remain anonymous, if any of you really knew me than you would know that I don’t do anything that I wouldn’t put my name behind. Unlike some people out there, I have no reason to be ashamed of what I say or believe in and therefore have no reason to hide behind an online alias. Seeing as how I post under my name, I would say that’s a good indication of that fact that I stand by what I say.

    As for you, “former student”, what gives you the authority to make claims on my mental state of well being? For all I know you could be one of the members of the radical student organization on campus known as the “Progressive Students of Milwaukee” in which case you have just proven my next point about how you have no idea what you’re talking about when it comes to politics. In addition, seeing as how you’re online blogging about why you have a problem with me and others like me who enjoy sportsman like activities, that only further proves my point and shows that you really don’t have a life. In case you’re wondering how I came across this blog, a friend of mine pointed it out to me. I thought it was amusing to read and thought I’d correct you. After all, I don’t mind if you’re ignorant, just as long as you don’t run your mouth without knowing first what you’re talking about.

    If any of you really know who I am, you would know that I’m very active on campus and if any of you have any questions, I’m not hard to find. You could also start with e-mailing me and I’d be more than happy to meet up for coffee or something like that if you’re really interested in talking. I do sincerely hope that you all have a nice day.

  6. Dan, thanks for correcting me on the type of firearm displayed in your group’s logo. As for your desire to hunt with a semi-automatic rifle, I’ll just say I enjoy more of a challenge when it comes to hunting, but to each his own.

  7. just a note in case you didn’t know, the regulation in the state of WI in regards to the size of the magazine you are allowed to hunt with, it is not to exceed 5 rounds per magazine. A well trained hunter doesn’t need more than one shot unless of course you’re using a small caliber rifle, it’s more of a convenience thing having your ammunition in a couple of mags as apposed to scattered about should you have to reload. And I would agree with your statement regarding how it’s all about the hunt, the is entirely the point. In saying this, if you are in fact a hunter, than there shouldn’t be too much we disagree on with regards to firearms. I choose to use the AR-15 because it is just that, a challenge. Since it is only a .223, each shot fired needs to be a well placed kill shot (in the vital areas) or else you will just wound the deer and then you would have to track it and that can get to be annoying.

  8. Pesch, if you think “liberal democrats” (and us coveted independents) “follow through with.. senseless comments,” you’re off by a wide margin. Your time has passed. Rove’s great proletarian revolution sailed and sunk long ago, and this sort of posturing gets laughed at and ignored. That’s exactly what I recommend we do with you.

    your classmate haaz.

  9. I think it’s funny Jason how you don’t even know how to spell your last name. is it haas or haaz? You want to try and compare me with Rove? that’s a typical response from someone who’s knows nothing about the person he’s accusing. then again I wouldn’t expect anyone on here to actually be willing to take the time and speak with me in person because that would be confrontational and we can’t have that. even still, the offer stand for anyone who wants to chat. we might all disagree but isn’t that kind of the point?

  10. Dan, if you’re that anxious to chat, it’s not hard to figure out how to reach me, considering my email’s on the main page. Then again, couldn’t this back and forth be considered a “chat?”

  11. So, you know what’s funny? As old as this blog may be…
    I am a democrat. No not a commie thanks. Nooo not a socialist. But thanks for asking. And I actually approve of the 2nd amendment. So I guess not all left-wing people are senseless and ignorant hm? THink it through, if you possibly can. And for further advice: You can stop thinking this militia is the only patriotic thing in America aside from apple pie. Some might make fun. but it would be useless, because by stereotyping anything with a pulse into a political category you make fun of yourself with more ease than anyone else on earth. I am being pretty honest here. No sarcasm intended.

    So, summary of what we just learned:

    you cannot put people into one pot or the other. ever. in every aspect of this world since day one, there is a moderate zone. But no commie nor extreme conservative could possibly grasp that idea. No one is out to get you and your rights. No need to cry about it.

    problem solved. the end.
