America’s largest militia says it will refuse to recognise Biden as president and ‘resist’ his administration

I doubt Biden is much concerned about this. In the last five decades, I’ve spent time in or around the religious right, left-wing anarchism, the far-left, right-wing libertarianism, the militia movement/preppers, the far-right, and the alt-right. My general conclusion is that all of these milieus are mostly just havens for total fucking idiots, at least in the United States. With rare exceptions, “radicals” in the US are merely members of the global 1% engaged in cosplaying. Fortunately, in recent months the actual lumpenproletariat (which is outside of ALL of these milieus) has shown how it’s done.

The largest militia group in the US will refuse to recognise President-elect Joe Biden as the nation’s duly elected leader when he is sworn in on 20 January 2021.

The Oath Keepers, an armed right-wing organisation that boasts tens of thousands of members with law enforcement and military backgrounds, was one of several groups to demonstrate in Washington over the weekend at the “Million MAGA March” in support of Donald Trump, whom news networks project has lost the 2020 election.

“I think about half this country won’t recognise Biden as legitimate. They won’t recognise this election,” Stewart Rhodes, who founded the Oath Keepers, told The Independent on Saturday in the nation’s capital.
