MilitiaWatch was given files from the internal and semi-public communications of a Georgia-based militia group. These files, provided to MilitiaWatch by the Atlanta Antifascists, show extremely worrying plans that may be indicative of conversations within other contemporary militia groups. This piece assesses some of this content and provides context that may be useful to those looking to assess the psychic and social environments in which militias like this seek to engage.
It’s September 2023, which means it’s time for a MilitiaWatch Monthly. This time, however, the Monthly includes two months, July and August 2023. Here are some of the main stories this time:
- Virginia Boogaloo fiasco in Gloucester
- Bundy (finally) turns himself in
- Secret Service caught chatting with Oath Keepers
- FL State Guard accused of being “militialike”
- J6 and Whitmer case updates
Given the tardiness of this update and the added timeframe, some stories may be left out or shortened more than usual.
