It has come to our attention that the Southern Poverty Law Center is now planning to classify the Washington 3% as a ‘White Nationalist Anti-Government Militia’. They are also claiming that all of the Washington Sheriffs that refuse to enforce Initiative 1639, have ties to white nationalism.
Washington 3% is a 501c4 (pending) nonprofit corporation registered with the Washington Secretary of State. We are a community-based organization made up of everyday people who come from all backgrounds and all walks of life.
We work tirelessly to support and build the communities. We feed and clothe the homeless. We are FEMA CERT trained and support all emergency responders. We believe that all humans are born with inalienable rights, and that our Constitution protects us as Americans from the Government taking those basic rights. We do not discriminate against anyone for any reason.
With that said, we have solicited to the Sheriffs across the state and have attended many County meetings in an effort to pass “Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinances.” Currently we have 6 counties (Cowlitz, Ferry, Franklin, Lincoln, Mason, Stevens) that have passed resolutions against I-1639.
This has drawn attention from the Attorney General Bob Ferguson, and he has issued public threats against the Sheriffs who have stood against the measure, to include threatening to send the State Patrol to arrest Sheriff Bob Songer.
To be clear, Washington 3% is tired of watching other gun groups and so-called conservatives negotiate with inalienable birthrights of the people. The government does not have the authority to grant or restrict our birthrights. The constitution does not grant us these rights, it forbids the government from taking them from us. Yet the government is taking away our rights. And the People have been letting them.
There has been too much fence-sitting. Too much complacency. We are taking action to protect our constitution and we will defend our Constitutional Republic against these domestic enemies.
We are not anti-government. We are very pro-constitutional government, but our government is no longer following their own rules. We have out-of-control federal bureaucracies with weaponized District Attorneys.
The Justice department routinely embarrasses itself with prosecutorial misconduct and blatant lies to setup Patriots who actively fight to preserve our Republic. Look at Malheur Refuge, LaVoy Finicum, Schaeffer Cox, and the entire Bunkerville fiasco with Gloria Navarro.
It is time to make a decision. Either you are Pro-America, love liberty and freedom; or you are Anti-America. If you are Anti-America, you are an enemy of the State. Those of you who do not believe that a civil war is already in progress, need to open your eyes.
We the People no longer trust the government. The average American is disenfranchised due to their lack of political voice. Politicians work for themselves, their pocket books, and the special interest.
As Washington 3%, we have had enough. We will not stop. If you want to know where we stand? Patrick Henry said it best, “Give me LIBERTY, or give me DEATH!” And we do not say that lightly.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
THE TIME IS NOW. WE ARE EVERYWHERE.
