Rise of the Moors Turns DHS’s ‘Perfect Storm’ into Summer Squall

Political elites blaming “white supremacy” for supposed “systemic racism” have made the rise of resentful extremists with bizarre beliefs inevitable — and that’s catching us all up in a rising tide of oppression/denial of fundamental rights. (Nineteenth-Century Khartoum slave market/PD)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Federal authorities are deeply concerned about the possibility of domestic terror and violence, including mass shootings, as the Fourth of July holiday approaches and the summer season gets fully underway,” ABC News reported. “A new Homeland Security bulletin obtained exclusively by ABC News warns that ‘violent extremists might seek to exploit easing COVID-19 restrictions, increased access to mass gatherings, and possible changes in levels of violence during the summer months to conduct attacks against a range of potential targets with little or no warning.’”

That, along with an accompanying video of Attorney General Merrick Garland announcing the new “national strategy” tying that in with the unrest at the Capitol on January 6.  As Garland had earlier pronounced “those who advocate for the superiority of the white race” as “the top domestic violent extremist threat we face,” it was fair to wonder if provocateurs were shaking up some low-hanging fruit to allow for a “heroic” and headline-trumpeted save, as so often seems to be the case, with the added bonus of conflating the suckers with average Trump supporters.

So, when headlines started to come in about Interstate 95 near Wakefield, MA being shut down as police responded to a group of “heavily armed men” claiming to “not recognize our laws,” my first thought was these could have been the droids we’re looking for. It wasn’t until later reports came out about arrests that ID’d the group Rise of the Moors that it became clear this was yet another failure of the prevailing government and media narrative; there wasn’t a white supremacist, Trump voter, or NRA member among them.

Who they are and what they want is perhaps best explained by a graphic on their home page promising “the truth about the black man in the judicial system” and featuring a graphic of a Knight Templar, a police officer beating a black man, and a Moor:

“Law and history must be taught together; What we call ‘racism’ today, is in fact the continuation of genocidal acts initiated by the Inquisition and Crusades. The modern-day police and their terrorism is a direct reflection on the Knights Templars and their actions authorized by the Popes of Rome.”

Forget that it was the Muslims who conquered North Africa forcing conversion on the natives. Forget that the Muslims conquered the Levant (including modern-day Israel, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine, Syria, and much of Turkey). Then forget that the Muslim Moors conquered most of Spain. Now disregard that Arab slave-trading continued after the British and United States abolished it and that Africans were the sellers.

Good thing we live in a country where the law established by its Founders from their heritage pretty much leaves citizens free to believe whatever they want — even if it’s kooky or worse — as long as they don’t force it on anyone else – at least it’s supposed to. With the rise of “cancel culture” and the conflation and smears being flung at anyone who doesn’t reject traditional beliefs and embrace all-encompassing cultural terraforming, the future of that is no longer something to take for granted – especially with Merrick Garland joining the chorus and pointing the finger.

One takeaway gun owners should have from this is to understand how and why the Moors got stopped in the first place – supposedly they were going from Rhode Island to a “training camp” in Maine, state troopers saw them refueling their cars “in a breakaway lane,” stopped to see if they could help and had their curiosity piqued by the way the occupants were dressed and visibly armed. Details of the “standoff” are not completely clear, but reportedly, some refused to put weapons down and some fled into the woods.  It’s hard to imagine people doing any more to attract unwanted attention to themselves — or reacting to a stop that their decisions made inevitable — in a more self-defeating way.

Still, we owe it to ourselves to ask what should be illegal about being armed or being dressed in tactical gear, or about training, no matter who you are — as long as you are not unlawfully threatening or endangering others. If all they did was have guns and “forbidden” magazines on their persons in “violation” of Massachusetts’ infringements on their rights, you don’t have to agree with or like them to understand that many of us, particularly those who embrace “I will not comply,” would also be put away if caught defying the same tyrannical edicts.

A government powerful enough to deny unapproved groups or individuals their rights is powerful enough to deny them to all who aren’t in the “big club.” What they can do to Rise of the Moors they can do to you and yours. And with the way things have turned with Democrats believing they’re “in charge,” traditional Americans, who mostly just want to be left alone, are being pushed as the ones who pose the bigger threat.

If the violence monopolists don’t stop squeezing that may become both an unintended consequence and a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Cops with no respect for 2A stop to “help out” in a state where it is illegal to have a round of ammunition in your car! Charged with the NON VIOLENT “CRIME” of possessing a firearm, slapped with the additional charge of: wearing body armor during a crime! What BS, land of Mitt Romney REPUBLICAN DOG!


Seems to me that they had a good reason to use those firearms on the ENFORCERS of victimless crimes.


Let us not forget as well that the Moors, Muslims were the greatest slave traders in history and remain so to this day. They enslaved infidel tribes, sold them to willing Imperial powers to fill the need for agricultural labor. They are still in that business and fuel the human traficing trade world wide. But let us not forget our own history. Our own federal government has engaged in unlawful and subversive efforts like COINTEPRO and other domestic intelligence programs directed against the liberties of Americans. Could it be that this “new Homeland Security bulletin obtained exclusively by ABC News”… Read more »

At least two million white people were taken from Europe & enslaved by followers of Islam.
THE main slave suppliers in Africa were either Africans themselves capturing other tribal groups, or followers of Islam.
“The white man” was nowhere near the enslaver Islamists were (& still are…) & did more to STOP slavery than any other race from the mid 19th century onwards, right up to today.
The incessant lies of the left need countering, forcefully, rationally & with facts, which are thankfully easily available.

Good points. Our side should leave race to the left. I just saw a panel of UK pinkos abuse Tommy Robinson, calling him “racist” for being Islamophobic. Islam is not a race. Christian is not a race. Many Muslims are “whiter” than most Euros, e.g. Mediterranean Euros. Iranians descend from Aryan tribes. Many European women were kidnapped & raped by Muslims. Many Euros were converted to Islam, e.g. in the Balkans. All “races” can breed and the result is a continuum of characteristics. Race theory is crude enough without our side buying into leftist assumptions and confusing race with religion… Read more »

That’s why i used the term “followers of Islam”, as they come from all races.
Being “Moorish” in reality isn’t an expression of freedom but rather expressing a desire to have control over others.


Well said. Probably why sensible Spaniards refer to them as Moros de Mierda.

what these modern day musselman tyrants fail to admit/remember is that the Crusades were in respose to their brutal subjugation and enslavement of the CHristian nations as they spread their version of domination. They had attacked and destroyed the Levant, the foint of christendom, then gone on to subjugate much of Europe, enslaving and dominating. The Crusades were merely a push to shove them back and reclaim the lands that were lost to their tyranny. What they further refuse to comprehend is that they are setting the stage for a repeat: the further they push their idealogy throughout the world,… Read more »

Hmm. The Romans pushed out the Jews, the Roman/Christians were pushed out by the Arab Muslims, and the Christians and Muslims traded ownership until the Mongols arrived. Seems conflict has been part of our history since before there was history.
Maybe what’s needed is another good children’s crusade.

Yeah, not so much: they all ended up sex slaves for the Muslims and died and droves! Islam is not kind, nor peaceful, nor tolerant, it is however quite brutal, it promotes slavery, the denigration of women, and a strong pension for genocide!


Powerful, excellent column, David!

Now, consider this from an expert:

This underscores my frequent rant about National Reciprocity. Whole thing wouldn’t have made the news with that in place. Here’s hoping they can use some iteration of FOPA in their defense.

The Crimson Pirate

IIRC FOPA requires the guns to be unloaded, and in the trunk or remotest part of the vehicle, with ammo in a separate container. slinging your rifle does not qualify. A quick look at Handgunlaw.com and a quick reading of the FOPA could have kept these guys out of trouble.


A quick reading of the document these government thugs swore an oath to should have kept these guys from having their rights violated.

Ansel Hazen

Yes it could have. The last thing I would want to do is shit on well meaning patriots but the last thing that’s needed is situations like this.


how bout suing to uphold the RUGHTS under the Bill of Rights, being denied them and others within that pooitical entity known as the State of Msssachussetts? Those Articles of Ammendment are meant to restirct ALL government entities from denying or resticting each and every one of those rights enumareated in the BOR, and more. HOW cn MA deny those right s and remain states in good standing in the Union?


Courts in MA do not obey the constitution.


Excellent read!

Roland T. Gunner

Excellent article Mr. Codrea.


What they are really guilty of is Felony Stupidity! They should have planned better, kept a low profile. At least, nobody was hurt or killed. Good thing it was MA State Police, not Feds they were dealing with!


Why ? It’s their RIGHT to do as they choose. They were hurting no one.

Ansel Hazen

Their OPSEC was still nonexistent Arny. Refueling on the side of the highway is a gold plated invitation for a visit by LEO patrolling the road.


Why didn’t they just plan on going to gas stations? Worried they might be owned by Templars?


More like rise of the MOORons.
Guess out of sight=out of mind never occurred to them ??
But there stupidity blows the liberal Democrat anti-gun people narrative


Love how the left covers for and lies about muslim dogs

Was the state trooper really stopping to help a motorist or was he racial profiling because of the color of their skin?

Ansel Hazen

As a former resident of this commie state what goes on is SP are always on the lookout for cars off to the side on the highway. The profiling aspect is they are hoping to snag a DUI because someone needed a pee break. Much $$ to be made for the court system with OUI charges. Why on earth they were refueling on the side of the highway is beyond me. They should have known better. If they were trying to fly under the radar and not purchase gas at a station then cash would have kept them from leaving… Read more »

They should take some time and watch that insanely hilrious old flick Up in Smoke, Cheech and CHong. When they were stoned outof their gourds and paranoid of the cops busting them, Cheech would remind Chong “AAAAAAAAaayayy Maannnn.. doan turnaroun’ “. In other words, be cool don’t do anything to draw attention. There is also the old saying “drive it like you stole it”.

How does one go from KY to ME? You’re gambling from PA to NH.


The moors of Spain allowed anyone to practice any religion equally.(the 1st to have churches with Muslim, Christian based,& Jewish based religions all in the same church,it was actually Catholics that conquered Spain not the other way around. (the moors were not the autocratic invaders as fake Francoist history portrays,& Spain wasn’t even a country,it was a region like every other constantly being fought over) Though I will agree with the point of your eloquent article altogether,I just wanted to mention that we shouldn’t tar everything with the same brush just as we don’t want kommie liberal treasonist portraying our… Read more »

What a load of revisionist Islamist bull.


Excerpt from The Force of Reason, by Oriana Fallaci “It was in 711 that after crossing the Strait of Gibraltar they landed in the most Catholic Iberian Peninsula, took possession of Portugal & Spain. Whoever believes the myth of ‘peaceful coexistence between conquered & conquerors’ should read the stories of burned convents & monasteries, profaned churches, raped nuns, Christian & Jewish women abducted for harems. He should ponder on the crucifixions of Cordoba, hangings of Grenada, beheadings of Toledo & Barcelona. In Seville king Mutamid used severed heads of Jews & Christians to adorn his palace. The beheadings of Zamora… Read more »

Like democrats, the religion “of peace” is intolerant of ALL OPPOSING VIEWS.


Its pathetic that you actually believe Christianity is the religion of peace anymore than Islam. All those religions are very similar & this country has countless Christians just as bad(they are just better at pretending to be accepting of others) all religions are self serving businesses used to keep the ppl ignorant & in check. Ffs we have confirmed ufos flying around,we have monuments from before recorded history around the world that were clearly built by aliens,but you stupidly choose to believe you are superior to others because you worship a different religion. You have Washington shaped like giant pentagram… Read more »

NO, all religions are not similar. islam is the religion of pieces not peace, especially if you are an infidel. there is no freedom in islam, you either submit, become a slave or die. in Chrisitanity you are to love God and love your neighbor. you are not forced to believe or punished by humans if you don’t. and please do not confuse Christianity with Catholicism, they are not at all similar. you are obviously not a student of history and should educate yourself because nothing i nor anyone else is going to say will convince you that you are… Read more »


Ask the Native Americans about those Christians. Religions teach peace, usually, but the religious don’t always follow the “book”.


Your lefty moral equivalence shows you know zip about Native American tribes & Christianity. Aztec priests used boys as F toys while fattening them for slaughter. 40yrs pre-Cortez, Aztecs vivisected 1000s of victims in 3 days. Aztecs used the surrounding tribes as a meat crop. Partly why Cortez could defeat them with a few 100 Spaniards: 10s of 1000s of native allies. Fave pastime of the Iroquois Nation: capture surrounding Indians (later Europeans) for torture meat on the hoof. Tie them to trees, slice off choice chunks for the barbie, make vics watch themselves cooked & eaten bit by bit.… Read more »

“Having left Rome, the [‘Religion of Peace’] descended on Campania for 70 years, destroying Montecassino & tormenting Salerno, for a time amusing themselves by sacrificing a nun’s virginity every night on the cathedral’s altar. In 898 they landed in Provence, in present-day St Tropez. In 911 they into Piedmont, occupied Turin & Casale, set fire to all churches & libraries, killed thousands of Christians…”

Amazing, I actually agree with you on this. Maybe I need to re-read the Qur’an. I must have misinterpreted it…


Even a broke sundial is right twice a year.


Revisionist history is pretending Catholicism isn’t the ideology that slaughtered millions in the crusades(the moors were tame by comparison). (I am not religious btw) history of ibearean peninsula isn’t as you claim,its a grey history of warring tribes for centuries in a land that was not a country & directly near moorish lands. The Catholic reconquista is a pathetic farcically revisionist BS fairytale. Everything I wrote is backed by evidence such as the church that remains to this day in Andalucía. To top it off the moors of Spain are the literal reason the dark ages came to an end,&… Read more »

Nice fairy tale, Relic. Or shall I say, Grover Norquist Sock Puppet? Here’s the reality: “From Spain in 721 the [‘Religion of Peace’] entered Catholic France, took Narbonne, massacred the entire male population, enslaved all women & children, then on to Nimes to slaughter nuns & friars. Then to Lyons & Dijon, pillaging every single church. In 731 a wave of 380,000 infantry & 16,000 cavalry reached Bordeaux. If in 732 Charles Martel had not won the battle of Poitiers-Tours, today French [women would be 2nd-class subjects]. In 827 they landed in Sicily.

P.S. in re: how the super-enlightened, super-tolerant super-advanced “Moors of Spain are the literal reason the dark ages came to an end.” More of the Islamic disinformation campaign rubbish inflicted on so many American children in gvt-union indoctrination camps – aka schools. Islam is a slave-theft society that relied on constant imperialist expansion for wealth. Its invention claims are nearly all outright lies, or were really invented by conquered peoples. Any inventiveness dies off as the country is increasingly Islamized, which is why Islamic countries are all brutal backwards S-holes except for a few places like Dubai where civilization is… Read more »


go and larn about why the date September 11th is “signficant” to the musselman religion. Hint: it has to do with Vienna. Read about that ittle “incident”.

Probes your load of bull puckey is not factual at all.

Every one of the crusades was to either liberate a sectioin of real estate that had been violently forcibly overtaken by the moors, subjugating the occupants thereof, or an attempt to get at the source of this “religion of peace” and destroy it by cutting off its head, or seat of government/central leadership.


Tionico, this comment is not really directed towards you but I tagged it to you because you are the last comment in a chain of multiple arguements that I have read regarding the same topic. To me, this is a perfect example of the differences of training and programming of different countries and cultures. Both think that their information is right and neither will give to the other or compromise. This is why we will always face the Muslim faction and why they will always want to destroy us because we will not except their religion therefore we will never… Read more »


Followed by the equally open-minded Inquisition after Spain unified. Oh, then they gently took over what is now Latin America. Seems nobody gets a gold star for national and religious conduct.
