“We’ve had an act of terrorism here, and we’re going to acknowledge it. It’s a chance to make a statement. This is an opportunity to go proactive and let the world know we will not tolerate the beheading of innocent women.” – Floyd Breshears, commander Oklahoma III%er’s
Oklahoma City – When law enforcement and media termed the beheading murder of a 54-year-old woman at an area food processing plant to be something other than an act of terrorism, members of the militia responded.
They gathered at Penn Square Mall, an opulent shopping center on the city’s north side, to stand up for a common sense definition for an act of terror that fits any dictionary explanation for what actually happened, an act of murder that was designed to strike fear in the population for a political purpose.
The previous Friday, members of the Council on American Islamic Relations had appeared at the mall – by any common sense definition an example of the Arabic souk, or central market – to protest the ISIS style of jihad is not their idea of a practice of the Islamic faith.
Asked for their opinion, these members of what legal scholars term the “unorganized militia” implied in the Second Amendment’s guarantee that a “well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state,” all between the ages of 14 and 70 as defined by the Oklahoma State Constitution, gave varying answers that held a common element.
They are determined that they will not tolerate violence against the people, and furthermore, they are scornful of any view taken by self-appointed interpreters of events such as news media or law enforcement officers.

This couple arrived late, wearing impromptu masks fashioned from bandanas. They refused all comment, remained aloof, and made an extensive number of photographs of people at the gathering. Members of the III%er movement said they see them at most gatherings of patriots in the Oklahoma City area, where they always wear the masks. Asked why, the man in the mask replied, “I’m on the FBI Watch List.”
