Patriot Games and The Upcoming Unpleasantness

Patriot Games has a new meaning. I’ve been watching the goings-on in Nevada regarding the Bundy/BLM clash. I have a few observations about how those in the Patriot movement should comport themselves regarding interaction with the .gov and .mil personnel. These observations do not come from a hitch in any military. They come from my own common sense. I freely and openly welcome any correction from my friends in the Patriot Movement.
1. Be much more discreet.
Camo uniforms are fine…if you are in the woods or desert. But camo worn around populations draws attention to you. If you own camo because you are a hunter, fine. Everything in its place at the proper time. But showing up for a pro-gun rally at the State Capitol in your camo BDUs is showing off, and maybe it’s your ego talking when it should be shutting up. Are you trying to show someone that you’re Barney Badass? Better to be not noticed at all. When you’re around other people, don’t you think it would be better to be in street clothing? Is it easier to conceal yourself in a crowd when you look like a member of the crowd, or when you’re in camo? Also, get used to wearing a big hat and sunglasses most of the time. Facial recognition software is pretty good these days. Some of the stuff you see in movies really happens.
