Quotes from the news wire:
Some right-wing extremist groups, particularly the anti-government Oath Keepers, have a long history of recruiting from current and former members of the military and law enforcement, oath Keepers are part of the resurgent militia movement, which believes the federal government has been co-opted by a shadowy conspiracy that is trying to strip American citizens of their rights. Though the Oath Keepers will accept anyone as members, what differentiates them from other anti-government extremist groups is their explicit focus on recruiting current and former military, law enforcement and first responder personnel.
We have seen, time after time, that extremists always look for alternatives to migrate to if they are finding difficulties on the platforms on which they're established, if a lot of people start migrating onto a platform to hear the Laura Ingrahms and Sean Hannitys, but are getting a steady dose of The Proud Boys... The Proud Boys may normalize the fringes in a way that normally it wouldn't.
The African American Defense League and The New Black Panther Party are hate groups with a long and very different record than Black Lives Matter, which is an idea, a movement, defense League’s not even close. People should be asking if BLM was n’t leading protests, who would be leading them ? Defense League could be worse. What group would fill the vacuum ?
