      This is not a joke: Patriotic Group To Build Armed ‘Defensible’ Neighborhood Fortress | CNS News

      A group of like-minded patriots, bound together by pride in American exceptionalism, plan on building an armed community to protect their liberty.

      The group, named Citadel, intends to purchase 2,000 to 3,000 acres for the project in western Idaho. The community will comprise of 3,500 to 7,000 families of patriotic Americans who “voluntarily choose to live together in accordance with Thomas Jefferson’s ideal of Rightful Liberty.”

      According to the Citadel website, Rightful Liberty means that “neighbors keep their noses out of other neighbors’ business, that neighbors live and let live.”

      Citadel explains that residents in the community will be bound by the following:

      Pride in American Exceptionalism
      Our proud history of Liberty as defined by our Founding Fathers, and
      Physical preparedness to survive and prevail in the face of natural catastrophes –such as Hurricanes Sandy or Katrina — or man-made catastrophes such as a power grid failure or economic collapse.

      Residents should also agree that being “prepared for the emergencies of life and being proficient with the American icon of Liberty — the Rifle — are prudent measures.”

      Some of the benefits of the Citadel community include a safe, well-prepared, patriotic community where children will be educated in school, not indoctrinated.

      Oh boy…that is a relief.

      The community will be protected by a perimeter wall that will be inaccessible to “tourists.” Each neighborhood within the community will have lower walls, dividing the town into defensible sections.

      The website has a link to applications where prospective residents can sign up. According to Citadel, more than 200 families have completed applications, even before any land has been purchased.

      While Citadel may sound wonderful to many who are reading this, the community has posted a warning on their home page:

      “Marxists, Socialists, Liberals and Establishment Republicans will likely find that life in our community is incompatible with their existing ideology and preferred lifestyles.”

      Citadel says that every patriot selected to live within the community “will voluntarily agree to follow the footsteps of our Founding Fathers by swearing to one another our lives, our fortunes and our Sacred Honor to defend one another and Liberty against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

      This is the CNSnews “article” currently making headlines on drudge…feeding the obvious crazies out there.

        I’m going to guess the Fox take on this: “Obama administration is putting American patriots in concentration camps!”

      • NW Luna says:

        Yeah, I linked to a article on that sometime back when commenting a few weeks ago. That part of Idaho is full of paranoid rightwingnuttery. I recall one of the requirements for residency was gun-owning. Maybe we can hope they’ll all blow each other up, squabbling about keeping noses out of neighbors’ business but making sure everyone wears the right kind of underwear.

    Dak, that photo of your family is lovely!
