Ohio Militia Calls for Armed March on Washington

more from the lunatic fringes of the US far right: http://www.splcenter.org/blog/2009/04/24/ohio-militia-calls-for-armed-march-on-washington/

"Identifying himself as “Pale Horse,” apparently a reference to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and speaking through a creepy voice distorter, the Ohio militiaman detailed his brazen vision: “A peaceful demonstration of at least a million — hey, if we can get 10 million, even better — but at least one million armed militia men marching on Washington. A peaceful demonstration. No shooting, no one gets hurt. Just a demonstration. The only difference from any typical demonstration is we will all be armed.”"

'no shooting, no one gets hurt'.

Y'see, the problem with a large mass of people with guns (especially if being watched by armed police/soldiers) is that all it takes is for one of them to get a little trigger happy and it'll all end in tears.

Does this remind anyone else of Marcus Brigstocke on The Now Show week before last? Maybe this is the wrong audience...

I'm really interested to see how the "pale horse" of revelation which carries plagues for mankind is able to organize a peaceful demonstration...

These militia rightists are always making calls for demos that never happen.

I may be wrong, but I think the rider commonly identified as plague/pestilence was on a white horse (with a crown and a bow). The pale horse was death.
