This is what happens when the gov't doesnt do their job. Its better that an accountable police force does it but what do you expect.

So this is about the gun possession of a felon only? This militia are within their constitutional rights to defend the border, are they not? Of course, they're being smeared as racists by the ridiculous ACLU.

He's a felon. He knew he wasnt supposed to be armed. Should've done the right thing by the militia, and never even touched a weapon.

the headline should be: "FBI arrests armed felon." The arrest has nothing to do with the law-abiding citizens who lawfully detain criminals near their homes to be turned over to authorities.

Only one article of the ones sourced claims the offender was "right-wing" and it's a left leaning article. I'm getting sick of seeing bias in titles and summaries.

We get it. We're all pissed. There are right ways and there are wrong ways. You are making things worse. Just vote. Stop making us look like dicks.

Everyone should flag the title of this summary. It obviously is biased and makes assumption that the militia is right wing.

If there are potholes in the road and you go fix them, the government will come after you. We the people can’t solve anything without them, just the way they like it.

The militia is necessary for the security of a free state. Leftist culture has made it so that militia groups are so ostracized that only the desperately frustrated or those with delusions of grandeur join them. Any real patriot owns a rifle, trains to be ready to fight as a Rifleman, and trains with his brothers of bond and blood to fight as a Fireteam. The loss of the American ethos is a tragedy.

I’m surprised no one’s denying this Hopkins guy is a right winger. Usually on stories like this one there’s about half a dozen comments under it claiming that this is a smear attempt from the left.

Which is it? Do they have no formal training or are most of them retired police and military? Which is it? Choose one because it can’t be both. 🤡

This felon was a member of the United Constitutional Patriots group. This group is well known as being right wing. Why are you all so determined to spin the facts? I thought only the left did that? Now you got the title changed because you were offended? This app has very quickly turned into a conservative echo chamber. Definitely isn’t unbiased as it was originally intended. This is what happens when a “center-right” youtube channel plugs a small, free, app. You say you don’t try to control dialogue like the far left. You say you only put facts above feelings. You say free speech is of the utmost importance. Yet here you all are employing the very same strategies of fact spinning when it suits your needs.🤦🏻‍♂️
