HOLLYWOOD BEWARE: The Article 15 Crew is Making a Movie by Mat, JT, Rocco, Cody, Brad, and Zach

Range 15 was spawned from the veterans that make up Ranger Up and Article 15, the two largest military lifestyle brands on the planet.  For years, we’ve given you badass clothing and videos, but last October, while sitting in a bar and drinking an inappropriate amount of alcohol, we decided to join forces and make the greatest movie ever.  Then we sobered up and realized we didn’t really know how to make a movie.  Then we got drunk again and realized that God hates a coward.

Knowing we needed a director good enough to make our vision a reality and crazy enough to read our script and not call the authorities, we broke into Ross Patterson’s house in the middle of the night and flashbanged his bedroom.  When the smoke cleared, he was in sitting in his smoking jacket wearing an eye patch, pipe in hand.  “I’ll make your movie,” he said.  “But first, you’ll have to dance for me.” We promised we’d never talk about what happened next.

We’re making the military movie you’ve always wanted someone to make: relentless ball busting, guns, explosions, hot chicks, booze, and more guns. We will not dramatically salute each other.  We will kill lots of shit, all while using our weapons correctly.  Again, there will be hot chicks.  Mat will probably sleep with all of them.  And I mean that both in the movie and in real life.  Seriously, that guy has a real problem. Tim Kennedy may or may not be oiled up in a loin cloth.

So who are we?

If you already support us, then you know us as the jackasses willing to do pretty much anything for your amusement.  If you don’t, we’re nine veterans who got out of the military and believe in the American Dream that anything is possible if you work your ass off. Six of us are regular dudes that served in the infantry and special operations.  One of us (Tim Kennedy) fights in the UFC.  Two of us (Dakota Meyer and Leroy Petry) were awarded the Medal of Honor for extraordinary valor.  They also make a fine quiche.

What’s the money going to do?

It’s going to make the best movie possible.  That’s what.

Hollywood wants our movie.  They want to take it, castrate the script, cast a boy band to play us, and then spend two miserable hours hashing out how war is hell.

Fuck that.

Let’s do this our way, blow some shit up, and make the best military movie ever.

We’ve personally pushed all in on this.  We aren’t wealthy people, but we’ve sunk every dime we can sink into this movie, and this is by far the biggest project any of us have ever taken on.  We can’t finish this, and give Hollywood the middle finger, without you.

If we raise $325k we can make this movie, and that will be awesome.

If we can raise more, though, we can chase our dream of having Carl Weathers charging forward on a white stallion against the enemy horde, or James Van Der Beek playing Russian Roulette Double Dutch, or really anything that involves either Kate Upton, Emma Stone, or Mila Kunis.  Anything.  Seriously, ladies.  Call us.

Bottom Line: The more we raise, the more badass your movie becomes.

  1. Bigger explosions.
  2. Crazy special effects.
  3. Non-stop Act of Valor style knee slide shooting.
  4. Forget about 3.  That’s not happening.
  5. Hot chicks.
  6. Even bigger explosions.
  7. More badass celebrity cameos.
  8. Viper semen.
  9. Did we mention hot chicks?

It’s a Perk-gasm.

Ranger Up and Article 15 exist because you allow us to with your support.  Range 15 is no different.  And we want to reward the people that support us with amazing perks that no one else will ever get!

  • Exclusive Content – everyone that contributes to this movie is going to get access to a secret Facebook group where we will post behind the scenes photos, videos, and updates.  We’ll even hold livestreams from time to time so we can interact with you guys.
  • Exclusive Gear – We’re going to launch posters, shirts, and even a challenge coin in this campaign that will NEVER be seen again.  And if you want the ultimate collector’s item, we’ll even sign them for you!
  • See it before anyone else – Get one of the movie perks (either digital or DVD) and you’ll see this thing before it hits theatres, Netflix, Hulu or your mom.  And if you want to know what the hell happens before it even comes out, we’ll send you a digital download of the script, or even a printed signed copy of the script itself!
  • Not content with being a Voyeur?  Push all in. – Yeah, it’s nice to be a part of it from a distance, but you need more than that.  Get a special thanks in the film credits, be an extra in the film, or even be listed as a producer of the film.  If even that is not enough, we have the “Second Best Package” where you will literally play Mat Best for a scene in the movie, or the Big Dick Playa (or Playerette) Dan Bilzerian Package where you will ride in on a white horse, save the crew, deliver a poignant speech, and ride off into the sunset at a key point in the film.

Can’t Contribute Right Now?  You can still help!

Look, we get it.  Sometimes your ammunition and whiskey budget has to take priority over your make the greatest movie ever made budget.  Help us out by sharing our campaign on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Pinterest.  Hell, do it on MySpace if you want.  Justin Timberlake might see it.

Bottom line, anything you can do is really appreciated!  We need all the help we can get.

We do not cover travel and accommodations for any package but “Second Best” and “Big Dick Playa Role”

Major LGBT group “Human Rights Campaign” targeting pro-family leaders with vicious attacks and death threats

Reaction to pro-family successes stopping ‘gay marriage’ and LGBT agenda overseas. Scott Lively and Brian Camenker of MassResistance among targets.

The so-called “Human Rights Campaign” (HRC), the wealthiest and most powerful homosexual and transgender activist organization in the US, has begun a major effort to demonize and personally attack the pro-family leaders whom they see as the major American impediments to the homosexual-transgender agenda in foreign countries.

This puerile but chilling “wanted poster” targeting Scott Lively is part of the HRC’s effort to demonize pro-family leaders.

Labeling their campaign “Export of Hate”, they focus on the individual leaders personally rather than their organizations. The HRC attack strategies include publishing vicious and incendiary articles and descriptions (ignoring or misrepresenting their targets’ actual statements or reasoned arguments), crude dehumanizing drawings of the faces, and eerie videos of them. They provide methods for activists to spread the attacks across the Internet. This has already resulted in two death threats against Dr. Lively. (See link below.)

HRC’s world “hate map” showing where pro-family groups are stopping the LGBT agenda!

HRC has targeted fourteen pro-family individual leaders they consider “enemies” of the LGBT agenda worldwide. Their number one “enemy” is Pastor Scott Lively of Massachusetts. Brian Camenker of MassResistance is also on the list:

Dr. Scott Lively, Abiding Truth Ministries
Robert Oscar Lopez, writer & commentator, an ex-gay
Sharon Slater, Family Watch International
Brian Brown, National Organization for Marriage
Larry Jacobs, World Congress of Families
Dr. Paul Cameron, Family Research Institute
Peter LaBarbera, Americans for Truth about Homosexuality
Benjamin Bull, Alliance Defending Freedom
Matt Staver, Liberty Counsel
Dr. Michael Brown, commentator & radio host
Janice Shaw Crouse, Concerned Women for America
Brian Camenker, MassResistance
Scott Stirm, Belize Action
Jordan Sekulow, American Center for Law and Justice

All of the individuals have in some way worked to stop the LGBT agenda in foreign countries, including the spread of “gay marriage.”


HRC’s logo tries to protray them as a “human rights” group emphasizing “equality.”

HRC also warns that there is an insidious “network” of pro-family groups organized worldwide against them. (If there is, it’s so secret that we haven’t found out about it!)

This is one of the tweets that HRC has its supporters sending around the Internet.

Their problem: The LGBT movement is stalled overseas

We have all seen the success that the LGBT movement has had in the United States, Canada, parts of Europe, and in a smattering of other countries. But despite having enormous wealth and organizational resources here in the US – along with the power and threats of the Obama administration (both domestically and internationally) — the “homosexual and transgender rights” movement along with its “gay marriage” push has been stalled in dozens of key countries, and most of the Third World (not to mention virtually all of the Muslim nations).  Much of this has been a result of local groups getting help from US-based pro-family organizations.

For example, Russia, Australia, Jamaica, Finland, Croatia, Uganda, Nigeria, Ireland, Argentina, Moldavia, the Virgin Islands, Poland, Singapore, and France have all been in the news recently, fighting back (often successfully) against the LGBT and “gay marriage” agenda being fomented in that country. And pro-family activists from the U.S. (including MassResistance) have been helping in nearly every case. In their report, HRC cites our 28-minute video “What ‘gay marriage’ did to Massachusetts”  which has been distributed around the world.

But in particular, Dr. Scott Lively has personally traveled to numerous countries in Europe, Asia, and Africa over the last several years has trained and advised thousands of activists and leaders how to successfully confront the anti-family agenda. Thus, he has incurred the wrath of the LGBT movement in a big way.

Dr. Lively has certainly gotten their attention!

HRC demands more help from US State Department

In fact, US homosexual groups and well-funded UN-based groups, along with the Obama State Department, have been attempting to force the LGBT agenda overseas. But in many countries, they’re up against even more determined pro-family citizens.

Apparently, they’ve determined that Obama’s help is not focused enough. On Sept. 4, HRC sent out a blast email demanding that US Secretary of State John Kerry appoint a special “gay czar” in the State Department to coordinate the pressure against countries that refused to buckle under. The email ranted at length about the “infamous anti-LGBT extremist Scott Lively” who is “exporting hate to other countries.” Thus, the US State Department needs to stop him, they believe. (Read the HRC email HERE.)

Attacking the key US pro-family leaders

Attacking pro-family leaders personally (rather than winning with better ideas) is not a new tactic by the homosexual movement. That is the basis of the absurd“crimes against humanity” lawsuit filed against Scott Lively recently by a New York-based Soros group, which is ongoing.

The work of HRC’s art staff, no doubt.

But now HRC has broadened the attack in an attempt to help force their agenda overseas.  Last week they unrolled their full-blown attack-series of web “reports”,including bizarre videos, which they immediately spread out to other national “gay” publications, including the magazine The Advocate which jumped on it.

HRC’s over-the-top depictions of Peter LaBarbera (left) and Benjamin Bull, intended to engage their supporters.

The LGBT movement knows that they cannot easily win in these countries in the forum of public opinion. So their strategy is to demonize, intimidate, harass, and hopefully destroy individual pro-family leaders personally. They want to make others afraid to be associated with them. And if it leads to threats or even violence to them, so much the better. HRC wants to inflict pain.

Here’s what HRS rolled out:

Main page – “Exporting Hate” – with links to others

Page with Brian Camenker of MassResistance

Downloable individual “esporting hate” reports by HRC:

26-page report on the 14 pro-family leaders

19-page report on Scott Lively

20-page report on World Congress of Families

Besides their rabid, off-kilter supporters, who really believes this stuff? In a normal world, nobody would.

Looking to attract another Floyd Lee Corkins?

One thing that HRC seems to be trying to do with this crude set of “reports” is to incite the more dysfunctional among their ranks. And there are plenty of them, judging from the sexually-charged and profanity-laced emails, etc., that they send to pro-family groups. But as HRC knows, it can get worse.

On August 12, 2012, Floyd Lee Corkins, a pro-homosexual activist, walked into the offices of the Family Research Council, a pro-family group in Washington DC, and began shooting. According to his later testimony, he was hoping to kill as many people as he could because he had seen FRC listed as a “hate group” by the fanatically pro-gay Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). Luckily, a guard, though being shot himself, managed to wrestle Corkins to the ground until police came. Corkins was later convicted and sentenced to 25 years in prison. Corkins also said that he wanted to make a political statement with the planned murders by desecrating the bodies.

The SPLC has never said they regretted Corkins’ actions, and they have continued (and even enlarged) their “hate group” rantings. The HRC listings are shockingly similar to SPLC’s.

Watch HRC’s VIDEO of Brian Camenker of Mass­Resistance.Note the ridiculous “special effects.”

The pro-family targets respond!

Several of the major pro-family leaders targeted by the HRC attack campaign have already publicly responded. Below are links to their articles (and HRC’s reaction to Scott Lively’s response).

Scott Lively:

“HRC Has Targeted Me for Murder” (9/17)

HRC posts response to above article: “Scott Lively Isn’t Impressed by HRC’s Export of Hate Report” (9/18)

“HRC Agents Now Sending Me Death Threats” (9/22) Caution: graphic language

Peter LaBarbera: 

“Human Rights Campaign’s ‘Export of Hate’ Report Incites Fear and Hate” (9/21)

Robert Oscar Lopez:

“Don’t Follow the Human Rights Campaign Down Another Rabbit Hole” (9/24)

Dr. Michael Brown:

“The HRC Is Inciting Fear and Hate” (9/20)

MassResistance’s reaction

First of all, the reason that HRC is doing this is that we are effective.MassResistance, Scott Lively, and the others are helping grass-roots pro-family groups around the world successfully confront the LGBT juggernaut. If we weren’t being having an impact, they wouldn’t care.

Secondly, there’s the LGBT movement’s obsession with the word “hate” (like “bigotry”, etc.), and their necessity to personally label and demonize anyone who opposes them. On one hand it shows their inability to win public opinion on the merits of their argument or facts. It’s a form of cowardliness. But it also reflects the childish, immature, and hyper-emotional mindset that one always sees from homosexual activists when they can’t get their way. Normal people don’t operate this way on the world stage. Many therapists say that it reflects the inner trauma, brokenness, and anger that’s associated with that tortured lifestyle.

Finally, this is a message to all of you not to be intimidated, to stand tall, and fight back harder than ever. HRC’s purpose is to instill fear. If pro-family people react by acting fearful, if you are afraid to speak up, if you are afraid to be seen with HRC’s targets or donate to them, then HRC has won. In general, terror tactics of one kind or another are nothing new. It happened during the Civil Rights era, the Revolutionary War, and countless other times. The difference is how YOU react.

The major Corporations who fund HRC

Human Rights Campaign is not just a bunch of obscure homosexual activists. It is the richest LGBT organization in America. Who funds them?  Corporate America.See list of major HRC corporate sponsors HERE.

Sticker war! You’ve all probably seen the obnoxious HRC “equal” signs on cars. Last year we came up with our own “NO gay marriage” sticker, and they quickly sold out! It looks like we’ll need to order another batch!

UPDATE: Congressional Candidate’s Communications Director Who Has “Orgasm” on Her Blog FIRED!

Democrat Congressional Candidate Keith Fitzgerald‘s new Communications Director Ana Maria Rosato posted an audio file on her public blog Sassy Political Insights. During the audio commentary Rosato states, “I have a strict policy — I don’t screw Republicans.” Well her comments have gone viral and she may have just screwed Fitzgerald, a Democrat.

Rosato asks, “Do Republicans hate sex, because they are tragically . . . pre-orgasmic? … Republicans are mad as hell, because they can’t get it up, can’t get off, and/or can’t get any.”

Rosatos’s Linkedin page states she previously worked in the office of former U.S. Congressman Gene Taylor (D-Mississippi) and on the Gene Taylor for Congress campaign. Rosato’s biography states that she is, “A seasoned, disciplined, and persuasive communications professional with savvy political acumen, I possess extensive experience with America’s diverse ethnic communities and political cultures from California’s multi-ethnic, union, pro-choice, and progressive communities to the Deep South’s Blue Dog Democratic, conservative, talk-radio, Fox-TV watching watching constituencies.”

During the podcast Rosato states, “Look at the evidence. Republicans damned sure aren’t acting as if they routinely experience that kind of rip-your-clothes-off – as you – walk – through – the – door – can’t – w-a-i-t – to kiss – your lips – and feel – your hands – all – o-v-e-r – my body – that kind of physical – merging where pleasure, pure unadulterated pleasure takes over – where being – pleased – where pleasing – each other, taking-you-to-new-heights-of-sheer – can’t catch-my-breath – orgasmic ecstasy pulses through our veins – pure delight . . . . until . . . . ☺ oh yeah, baby.”

Listen to Rosato’s commentary on her public blog:

Rosato posted a column titled “Do Republicans Hate Sex?” published in May 2012. Here is the full transcript of her podcast with a link to the podcast:

Today’s Grand Ob/Gyn Party is obsessed with sex — mainly ensuring that the rest of us have the same apparently miserable sex lives that they themselves endure. Just look at them. Do they look happy? Do they look like they are being romanced and courted? Do they look like they have happy, fulfilling, fabulous-can’t-wait-to-get-to-my-honey relationships? Nope.

They sure seem like a cranky, irritable, miserable lot to me. They ain’t getting any lovin’, and they damned sure spend a lot of time devising ways to prevent the rest of us from happy lives and in particular, happy sexually fulfilling lives.

Look at the evidence. Republicans damned sure aren’t acting as if they routinely experience that kind of rip-your-clothes-off – as you – walk – through – the – door – can’t – w-a-i-t – to kiss – your lips – and feel – your hands – all – o-v-e-r – my body – that kind of physical – merging where pleasure, pure unadulterated pleasure takes over – where being – pleased – where pleasing – each other, taking-you-to-new-heights-of-sheer – can’t catch-my-breath – orgasmic ecstasy pulses through our veins – pure delight . . . . until . . . . ☺ oh yeah, baby.

Wait a sec . . . b-r-e-a-t-h-e . . .

The kind of sex I just described? You have to experience it to understand it, to understand the power and joy, the word-escaping orgasmic ecstasy of it all. How tragic that when it comes to that lovely ecstasy, Republicans act as if they have lived their entire lives never, ever, ever coming close. (Puns quite intended.)

The Sexual Frustration & Immaturity Bad Public Policy Connection

Today’s Republicans act as if they are sexually frustrated and sexually immature. They lash out at the rest of us to prevent anyone from experiencing this fabulously Divine birth-right given to each of us by the Great Creator-of-All-That-Is just because we arrived on this planet.

I wonder.

Do Republicans hate sex, because they are tragically . . . pre-orgasmic?

Look at some of the legislation that the “I-hate-sex” Republicans aggressively promote.

1. the “Just say no” a la Nancy Reagan answer to teen pregnancy
2. re-outlawing birth control
3. re-outlawing abortion (legal in the nation until 1873)
4. opposition to legal marriage equality for LGBT Americans

The connecting dot is sex. Republicans fear that someone somewhere—perhaps many of us in many places know and experience fabulous sex. Republicans are mad as hell, because they can’t get it up, can’t get off, and/or can’t get any.

Hint: being mean and nasty, fellas, fails the AM aphrodisiac test.

Sex Ed 101: Recreation and Reeee-creation

We all know that sex can be for two reasons. On the one hand, sex can be for pure pleasure, enjoyment, fun, recreation! Yoohoo! Yeah, baby! On the other hand, it can be for the purpose of having children—babies. Sometimes for both. Most of the time, though, we have sex for purely recreational purposes. It’s fun! It’s f.r.e.e. Under the right circumstances and with the right person, sex feels soooo good. [Note to Republicans: deciding which circumstances and which person is unique to each of us, and none of your business.]

Some of us are coupled, some of us are married, some of us are single. Some have girlfriends. Some have boyfriends. Some have B.O.B. (battery operated boyfriends.) Many of us have a number of partners throughout our lives. We have sex. Life’s good that way.

Can’t you just hear the mantra from today’s Republican leadership?

“The audacity! The utter injustice of it all! How dare anyone enjoy their birth-right to f.r.e.e. recreation.”

Yes, today’s Republicans certainly expend an awful lot of energy focusing on, pontificating about, and obsessing over sex. What the Republican Party needs to focus on like a laser is fixing the economic mess they created during the eight years that their boy was occupying the Oval Office, which they stole in 2000.** But getting all up in our private business is what busibodies do when they themselves don’t have much of a life. Republican creative juices are so pent up that all they can think of is to create an America that is puritanical, harsh, cruel, hate-filled, and deprived of all pleasure – sexual or otherwise.

The idea of being sexually fulfilled just isn’t part of the Republican equation for living life to its fullest. That may explain the Republican propensity for prostitutes and airport stalls. That may help to explain why Republicans legislate as if our sex lives are their business and that sex must be for reeeee-creation only. Ergo, Tea Party Republican legislative packages center on restricting our knowledge of sex, eliminating our reproductive health care options, and punishing women and men for having sex without the intent of creating a baby inside a legal heterosexual marriage. In other words, Republicans are obsessed with punishing us – all of us – for having sex for pleasure!

You know, if Republicans had healthy, loving, hot sex lives, they would quit screwing over the rest of us.

Does Fitzgerald agree with the person he hired to speak for him? We have left a message for his campaign Communications Director to call us.

UPDATE: October 4, 2012

Now former Communications Director for the Fitzgerald campaign, Ana Maria Rosato said she is standing by her statements and issued a parting blog with the dateline “Saratoga” Fla. Rosato refused to apologize for her comments about the Pope and his “pedophilic protecting” priests and for calling Republicans “child haters” who “hate” women, blacks, the poor, police officers, firefighters and teachers.

When approached by a reporter Tuesday, Democrat Candidate for Congress Fitzgerald “refused” to comment or say whether he agreed or disagreed with her statements.

Rosato was sent to Sarasota, FL by the Democrat National Committee. Rosato was sent to help Fitzgerald breathe life into his campaign. The national Democrat Party announced it was cancelling a $400,000 TV buy reserved for Fitzgerald.
