Street violence is becoming the norm for radical-leftist groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter. They threaten businesses, conservative events, and even religious gatherings. As understaffed, underfunded, and under-equipped police departments struggle to defend citizen rights liberties, and property, citizen militias might be the cavalry coming to the rescue.
Martin Mawyer, president of Christian Action Network, joins Pastor Jason Binder to have a frank and eye-popping discussion with the executive officer of the Campbell County, VA militia, Dan Abbott, on the need for every state to have local militias.
Street violence is becoming the norm for radical-leftist groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter. They threaten businesses, conservative events and even religious gatherings.
As under-funded police departments struggle to contain the violence, citizen militia groups might be the answer to fill the void.
Back in May, in a story that never made national news, a local restaurant in Lynchburg, VA was attacked by a mob of 200 rioters upset over the owner’s statement about Gov. Ralph Northam’s mask mandate.
Hundreds of rocks were thrown at the restaurant as patrons were dining. M80 fireworks were pitched. The rioters threatened not only to loot restaurant but to burn it to the ground. When a handful of police showed up, they were immediately overwhelmed by the thugs.
That’s when the owner called for additional help by reaching out to leaders of local militia groups. They quickly responded and saved the restaurant!
One of those groups was the Campbell County militia, the state’s first officially recognized militia.
In my recent podcast, I spoke with its executive officer, Dan Abbott, about that dangerous, life-threatening night. He told me a half-dozen police officers later called to thank his organization for showing up!
But we all want to know more about militias than their ability rescue of engendered citizens. How do they recruit? Who do they recruit? Do they train? What about bad recruits? What happens to them? I pepper Mr. Abbott with all those questions Americans want to know about militia groups.
I think you’ll find Mr. Abbott’s answers enlightening, informative and remarkable.
In my next episode, I’ll be talking with Ryan Mauro, the director of the Clarion Intelligence Network, and their courageous efforts to get Christians out of Afghanistan BEFORE they are hunted down by ruthless Taliban soldiers.
