“Patriot” Movement

Shasta County is home to local “militia” members and others who espouses far-right ideology, including, at times, the use of violence to accomplish political goals.  Individuals involved in local “patriot” movements are diverse and unique and cannot be quickly or easily categorized. We are committed to coverage of local far-right activists and extremists in a way that highlights safety concerns and supports the democratic process.
