An “Army” of Militias Will Answer Trump to Intimidate Voters on Tuesday
We begin with the looming threat of militia violence at the polls on Tuesday since these various so-called “patriot” groups are answering Trump’s call for an “army” to show up at the polls to stop Democratic votes which Trump has equated with fraud. Spencer Sunshine who has spent the last decade and a half studying White Nationalist groups, neo-Nazis, the Patriot movement and militias, joins us to discuss his article at Truthout, “Organizers Are Gearing Up to Resist Far Right Intimidation at Polls” and assess how dangerous the biggest group, the “Oathkeepers” are since they have recruited thousands of police, soldiers and veterans with military training. We examine the options voters have when they face intimidation from armed militiamen most of whom are acting out their fantasy of being special forces warriors but a few are deranged and dangerous.
