And good riddance......
It finally happened, and we had a feeling our days were numbered. If you can't find us on Facebook anymore, our public page got deleted today with absolutely no way to fight it. It's probably for the best. We thoroughly enjoyed the interactions we've had for six years on that platform, but we started getting the feeling we didn't want to be on a platform where we weren't wanted.
Hypocrisy rules in 2020. While militias are being attacked for hate, violence, and an entire host of other things, common sense and logic definitely paint a picture of the majority of that coming from the other side of the fence.
Granted, there are obviously groups out there that operate under the banner of "militia" that give the rest of us a bad name. Well, for those on the other side who say they aren't about rioting and looting and those who do give them a bad name; sucks doesn't it?
Facebook has the right to censor content and voices just the same as your employer has the right to fire you because they didn't like how you acted, or something you said. The First Amendment does guarantee the freedom of speech, but that freedom is not without the consequences of your words or actions. You have the right to say it, but that doesn't always mean you should. Fair enough. If a platform doesn't agree with our thoughts on training and preparedness, that's fine. We have the right to go somewhere else, the same as they felt they had the right to not only nuke our pages, but also all of the personal profiles of our admins.
We hold ourselves to a higher standard, and we have since the beginning of the Kansas City Area Militia. We are who we are, and we are what we are. Several times we have been asked why we don't change our name. Would it make things easier? Perhaps, but ultimately to do so would be nothing short of disingenuous. We stand for the Constitution of the United States of America, the Flag of the United States of America, and ALL of her people. We are not a hate group, and you will find no "white supremacy" or any of the other non-sense the media keeps pushing here either. As a matter of fact and principle, a lot of the things that have been said by the media regarding groups like ours lately are very clearly laid out in our bylaws as things we absolutely will not stand for in our organization. However, as I hope everyone has learned lately, the media is the ultimate source of the majority of what has gone so wrong with this country. This includes social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and others who have done nothing but constantly keep the fear train and the racial divide going into a complete meltdown for the majority of 2020.
Stay tuned for more blog posts here, and for more ways to interact and find us in the future. For now if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please email us at email@example.com. We always respond. If you don't see a response, check your spam folders.
