Mexican Citizens Topple Cartels And Are Rewarded With Government Retaliation

Tyler Durden's picture


Submitted by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market blog,

There is one rule to citizen defiance that, in my opinion, surpasses all others in strategic importance; and it is a rule that I have tried to drive home for many years. I would call it the “non-participation principle” and would summarize it as follows:

When facing a corrupt system, provide for yourself and your community those necessities that the system cannot or will not. Become independent from establishment-controlled paradigms. If you and your community do this, the system will have one of two choices:

1)  Admit that you do not need them anymore and fade into the fog of history, OR...

2)  Reveal its tyrannical nature in full and attempt to force you back into dependence.

In either case, the citizenry gains the upper hand. Even in the event of government retaliation or a full-blown shooting war, dissenting movements maintain the moral high ground, which is absolutely vital to legitimate victory. No revolutionary movement for freedom can succeed without honoring this rule. All independent solutions to social destabilization and despotism rely on it. Any solutions that ignore it are destined for failure.

I am hard-pressed to think of a better recent example of the non-participation principle in action than the rise of Mexican citizen militias in the Western state of Michoacan.

Michoacan, like most of Mexico, has long been overrun with violent drug cartels that terrorized private citizens while Mexican authorities did little to nothing in response. I could easily cite the abject corruption of the Mexican government as the primary culprit in the continued dominance of cartel culture. I could also point out the longtime involvement of the CIA in drug trafficking in Mexico and its negative effects on the overall social development of the nation. This is not conspiracy theory, but openly recognized fact.

The Mexican people have nowhere to turn; and this, in my view, has always been by design. Disarmed and suppressed while government-aided cartels bleed the public dry, it is no wonder that many Mexicans have turned to illegal immigration as a means of escape. The Mexican government, in turn, has always fought for a more porous border with the U.S. exactly because it WANTS dissenting and dissatisfied citizens to run to the United States instead of staying and fighting back. My personal distaste for illegal immigration has always been predicated on the fact that it allows the criminal oligarchy within Mexico to continue unabated without opposition. Unhappy Mexicans can simply run away from their problems to America and feed off our wide-open welfare system. They are not forced to confront the tyranny within their own country. Under this paradigm, Mexico would never change for the better.

Some in the Mexican public, however, have been courageous enough to stay and fight back against rampant theft, kidnapping and murder.

The people of Michoacan, fed up with the fear and subjugation of the cartels and the inaction of the government, have taken a page from the American Revolution, organizing citizen militias that have now driven cartels from the region almost entirely. These militias have decided to no longer rely upon government intervention and have taken independent action outside of the forced authoritarian structure.

The fantastic measure of this accomplishment is not appreciated by many people in America. Though many cartels are populated by well-trained former Mexican military special ops and even covert operations agents, the citizens of Michoacan have proven that the cartels are a paper tiger. They can be defeated through guerrilla tactics and force of will, which many nihilists often deny is even possible.

NPR reported:

Joel Gutierrez, a militia member of the Michoacan region, says residents were “sick of the cartel kidnapping, murdering and stealing.”

“That’s why we took up arms,” says Gutierrez, 19. “The local and state police did nothing to protect us.”


The militia men have been patrolling their towns and inspecting cars at checkpoints like this one for nearly a year. All that time, federal police did little to stop them, and at times seemed to encourage the movement.


But that tacit approval appeared to end last weekend, when the number of the militias mushroomed and surrounded Apatzingan, a town of 100,000 people and the Knights Templar’s stronghold. A major battle between the militias and the cartel seemed imminent.


The federal government sent in thousands of police and troops to disarm the civilian patrols. A deadly confrontation ensued. Federal soldiers fired into a crowd of civilian militia supporters, killing two.


Militia leader Estanislao Beltran says the government should have gone after the real criminals, the Knights Templar, and not those defending themselves. He vehemently denies rumors that he takes funds from a rival group.


“The cartels have been terrorizing us for more than a decade,” Beltran says. “Why would we side with any of them?”

Initially, local authorities encouraged the militias, or stayed out of their way. The citizens armed themselves with semi-automatic weapons, risking government reprisal, in order to defend their homes; and so far, they have been victorious. One would think that the federal government of Mexico would be enthusiastic about such victories against the cartels they claim to have been fighting against for decades; but when common citizens take control of their own destinies, this often incurs the wrath of the establishment as well.

The Mexican government has decided to reward the brave people of Michoacan with the threat of military invasion and disarmament.

In some cases, government forces have indeed fired upon militia supporters, killing innocents while exposing the true intentions of the Mexican political structure.

Mainstream media coverage of the situation in the western states of Mexico has been minimal at best; and I find the more I learn about the movement in the region, the more I find a kinship with them. Whether we realize it or not, we are fighting the same fight. We are working toward the same goal of liberty, though we speak different languages and herald from different cultures. Recent government propaganda accusing Michoacan militias of “working with rival cartels” should ring familiar with those of us in the American liberty movement. We are the new “terrorists,” the new bogeymen of the faltering American epoch. We are painted as the villains; and in this, strangely, I find a considerable amount of solace.

If the liberty movement were not effective in its activism, if we did not present a legitimate threat to the criminal establishment, they would simply ignore us rather than seek to vilify us.

The militias of Michoacan have taken a stand. They have drawn their line in the sand, and I wish I could fight alongside them. Of course, we have our own fight and our own enemies to contend with here in the United States. As this fight develops, we have much to learn from the events in Western Mexico. Government retaliation has been met with widespread anger from coast to coast. And despite the general mainstream media mitigation of coverage, the American public is beginning to rally around the people of Michoacan as well. The non-participation principle prevails yet again.

The liberty movement in the U.S. must begin providing mutual aid and self-defense measures in a localized fashion if we have any hope of supplanting the effects of globalization and centralized Federal totalitarianism. We must begin constructing our own neighborhood watches, our own emergency response teams, our own food and medical supply stores, and our own alternative economies and trade markets that do not rely on controlled networks. We must break from the system and, in the process, break the system entirely.

Even now, we are beginning to understand the subversive transformation of our own law enforcement structure, and find a system designed to protect the criminal establishment, not the people.  The FBI, for example, has recently changed the language of its primary mission statement, claiming that their goal is "national security", not law enforcement.

Police department across the U.S. are also changing how they interpret their mandate.  U.S. courts have ruled that police departments do not have a constitutional duty to protect citizens from harm, rather, they simply exist to enforce legal code after a crime has already been perpetrated.  This means that local police are no longer considered "peace officers", but agents of bureaucracy who are not necessarily required to defend the citizenry from violent action.  The terrors Mexican citizens face in Michoacan are coming to America, and if disarmament proponents have their way, we will have no means to stop it.

I am growing increasingly exhausted with the incessant rationalizations of frightened activists posing as non-aggression proponents; the same kinds of people who refuse to even entertain the probability that physical self defense will be needed against corrupt government. The pungent smog of cowardice that follows them curls the nostrils, and the obvious transparency of their fear is a bit sickening. I wish I could convey how refreshing it is to witness a group of common people, regardless of nationality, with a set of brass ball bearings large enough to face off against government supported drug cartels notorious for mass murder and decapitation.

If you want see into the future, into the destiny of America, I suggest you examine carefully the developments of the Michoacan region. It is no mistake that good men and women are being disarmed around the world, and America is certainly not exempt. Look at what happens when we are not helpless! We can crush cold and calculating drug cartels as easily as we can crush psychopathic government entities. We are capable of superhuman feats. We are capable of globalist overthrow. We are capable of unthinkable greatness, as long as we are not distracted by false solutions and false leaders who lure us away from localized action towards centralized non-events.

The rise of Mexican non-participation groups gives me much hope for the future. For if the most corrupt and criminally saturated of societies can find it within themselves to fight, to truly fight, regardless of the obstacles and regardless of the supposed consequences, then there is a chance for us all. We must look beyond the odds of success and become men — real men — once again. We must face down evil, without reservation and without apprehension first by separating from the system, and then by standing our ground. We must be willing to risk everything; otherwise, there is absolutely nothing to gain.

It's nice to see this story finally get some attention.  The US corporate media complex seems to have completely missed it (shocking, I know).

This is going to piss-off a whole bunch of Mexicans.  It's also the kind of thing that will probably result in the beginnings of a serious anti-government resistance.

Never doubt that a nation's military will fire on its citizens when ordered to do so.  I served 4 years active in the US machine and I have no doubt that they would not spend two seconds pondering if they should obey the order to fire on US citizens (or anyone else for that matter).  Following orders is much more than a duty or way of working; it becomes instinctive.  My dog spends more time weighing right or wrong when processing a command than those in the military.

As a veteran who was a one enlistment, 6 years, civilian soldier, I agree. I never saw anything to make me believe that the senior officers and senior enlisted ranks would not both order and carry out the widescale shooting of American citizens IF those citizens were carrying out activites that could threaten the wealth and happiness of the 1% elite corporate class. Now a days that is even more likely, as military is all volunteer, professional and beholding in no way to the civilian citizen. IN FACT, todays troops are told they are a special person, with special status. In my day we were citizens doing a tour of duty, loal to our families and friends at home. Today, loyalty is to the warrior class, meaning the particular branch of service you are in. Once we stopped calling our troops, troops and soldiers, and started giving them warrior status, we headed in a direction where the military is dangerously detached from civilian life. WE, after all, pay for everything they have, WE support them and their families, and many of us are veterans. Sadly, our cops serve the elite 1% and I believe our military now does to. They would shoot us all in an eye blink if ordered to. But then, if they shoot us, who in the fuck is going to pay them every month, and pay for their families medical care and all those benefits after seperation from service?

America is fascist, we need to accept that, because the fascist rot is now so deeply set into government, the military and our professional spy apparatus that we may never go back to a free country. Any man in America claiming to be free, is either blind or a fool. The NSA, by proven fact, is recording this post, putting it into their "read file" due to key word usage. It WILL be read, and my name will get one more red mark against the "Shoot to kill when the time comes" list.

I agree.

If America is destroyed, it may be by Americans who salute the flag, sing the national anthem, march in patriotic parades, cheer Fourth of July speakers–normally good Americans, but Americans who fail to comprehend what is required to keep our country strong and free – Americans who have been lulled away into a false security.

there would be a simple, and politically very, very painful solution to that: bring back the citizen soldier. it's called the draft

(meanwhile I continue to shake my head about the use of the word fascist in the American political discourse. it's a good word to describe it superficially, but it has nothing to do with the goals, methods and reasonings of the fascists on the european continent. it starts with the fact that a true fascist is proud of this label, and very critical of liberal financialist & capitalistic setups like the one the US has. it goes even further with the fact that fascists advocate a certain degree of autarchy, i.e. are against free trade. further, they would shoot anyone that would even suggest to shift jobs overseas. the list is endless. what imho ails the US is not fascism, it's a corruption of liberalism and capitalism by extreme financialism, powered by further corruption in the nexus between banks and financial/monetary policy and the military/security/prison industries)

The draft is equivalent to involuntary servitude.  How exactly does enslaving people, even temporarily, solve anything at all?  It was always a stupid idea.  What you statists can't get through your heads is that both options are wrong--we simply don't need big government at all, or its gigantic army.  Idiot!

Televisa, which has deep ties to Peña Nieto, aired an interview with the head of one of the auto-defensas in Michoacan, in the interview he stated that they were ready to lay down their arms as soon as the government arrested the heads of the Caballeros Templadosn cartel, Televisa cut 6 seconds out of the interview to make it sound like he just said that they were ready to lay down their arms. This is the same Televisa whose vans were caught smuggling 9 million dollars in cash into Nicaragua 2 years ago. Mexico's no more corrupt than the US, they're just a little less organized about it.

Wow!  A Bayard Taylor reference!  You could knock me over with a feather right now.  I didn't think ANYONE read any of his stuff any more.

I used to live near his old estate just north of Kennett Square, PA.  Worked on his property when I was kid, mowing the lawn and raking leaves.  He was 100 years in the grave at that point, but his estate, called 'Cedarcroft', is still there, as is the gatehouse and the road connecting them.  The neighborhood built on his old lands around it bears the same name, as you can imagine.  And that's where I lived when I was a kid.  That estate was one my first customers when I started my old landscaping business.  Across the street was one of the distant heirs of the Hess family fortune, who I also did work for (and she would sometimes take me for a spin in her old 58 Caddy when the weather was nice).

This, as well as the news that no charges will be filed against the shit cops who shot an innocent driver while the cops were looking for Dorner, is just maddening. They didn't even try to identify the target and didn't even get the color of his truck right. So, if you're ever in LA and driving the same make and model car, but not necessarily color, as a wanted criminal, they can now shoot you without even checking to see who's driving the vehicle.

Dorner ended up committing "suicide" by "self-inflicted gunshot wounds to the head" after they "accidentally" blew up his cabin with "tear-gas". -

At around 5 a.m., the mother and daughter’s blue Toyota rolled slowly down Redbeam Avenue. Carranza was at the wheel, her window rolled down as she tossed newspapers toward front doors. Her mother was seated behind her, rolling the newspapers up. The mayhem began when police stationed on the block somehow mistook the Toyota for a gray Nissan Titan, the vehicle Dorner was said to be driving.

...Hernandez was shot twice in the back, and Carranza was injured by broken glass... Beck called the shooting "a tragic misinterpretation" by officers working under "incredible tension" hours after Dorner allegedly shot police officers. He promised to provide a truck from a donor regardless of potential litigation by the women....Jonas has described his clients as receiving “no commands, no instructions and no opportunity for surrender” as they went down the street. He has also said their vehicle's headlights were on. When police opened fire, he said, the truck’s cabin became a storm of bullets, shattered glass and plastic.
“Margie is screaming ‘we are being shot at, we are being shot at!’ Jonas said. “Then she screamed out, ‘I am just the newspaper woman, I am the newspaper woman!’” -

What happened to the police that shot this innocent 71 year old lady in the back, Twice?...

Except autodefensas only reacted when 1. cartels 'borrowed' women and children, i.e. you get a call 'make sure your daughter is bathed tonight, because i am coming for her in the morning, hehehehe." and 2. 'taxes' extracted by cartels are onerous--avocado orchard owners are forced to deed over their highly productive land to the knights. etc. etc.

The citizen defense groups that are retaking their towns in Michoacan and elsewhere tolerated a myriad of abuses up until the cartel gangsters started raping their wives and daughters. THEN they said enough. Too late if you ask me. But better late than never.

"Even in the event of government retaliation or a full-blown shooting war, dissenting movements maintain the moral high ground, which is absolutely vital to legitimate victory. No revolutionary movement for freedom can succeed without honoring this rule."


So this means the dissenting movements against Chavez' communism had the moral low ground, since they lost.  Then there was all that Turkish confiscation of Greek citizen houses on Cyprus.  Those families must have had the moral low ground.


God fights on the side of the biggest artillery.  There is no other lesson to learn.

The last scene was interesting from the point of view of a professional logician because it contained a number of logical fallacies; that is, invalid propositional constructions and syllogistic forms, of the type so often committed by my wife. "All wood burns," states Sir Bedevere. "Therefore," he concludes, "all that burns is wood." This is, of course, pure bullshit. Universal affirmatives can only be partially converted: all of Alma Cogan is dead, but only some of the class of dead people are Alma Cogan. "Oh yes," one would think.

He said all dissenting movements must maintain the moral high ground in order to win. He did NOT SAY that maintaining the high ground was sufficient to win, NOR did he say the winners in any battle had held the high ground.

Please return to logic class, until you can understand at least a simple, cloth-eared syllogism.

Hitler had the moral high ground against the bolshevik jews and zionist controlled British and Americans. It didn't do him any good and led to the slaughter of millions of German women and children, as well as whole cities filled with priceless architectual treasures. Now, that communism has spread over the entire world, enslaving all in a debt fueled orgy and transfer of wealth. 

Law and money are jewish weapons of choice. Pretty stupid to maintain societies contolled with these two weapons.

Which doesn't begin to compare with what the allies did to the Germans. Stop reading the zionist history and start reading the history that has been hidden from you. Start with "Hitler's War" by David Irving. Hitler's actions were predicated on Bolshevik jew and British atrocities. Further, he didn't kill them for not being Aryan, what a rube. The World Jewish Congress declared war on Germany in 1933, which included assassinations and economic sabotage, what we would classify today as terrorists. I guess you know nothing of the german and polish women and children that were raped, tortured, crucified on barn doors and then shot?  The execution of german prisoners? 

The Jews are responsible for the worst holocaust in history: the killing of between 25 and 40 million Russians. 

You're pretty brainwashed.

Many years ago I worked with a very euro-centric uber-left pacifist that believed the 2nd should be repealed, socialism was perfect, yadda yadda. You know the type.

He obviously didn't own a gun. The day after his daughter was raped, he actually ran across the rapist in his neighborhood. He told me with a certainty I've never heard in anyone else's voice before or since that had he been armed, the man would be dead. When this shit gets personal, there will be retaliation.

I have no doubt that if anything like cartel rape gangs surfaces in the US, that not only will retaliation like what's happening in Mexico occur, it'll be on a scale that will be unmanagable by any law enforcement entity, and they'll just let it play out like the LA riots. As my ex frequently would say about her kids, "don't mess with mama bear." Or papa bear.

As you might imagine from my description, the fellow was ill-prepared for a fight with someone half his age and twice his weight with violent tendancies.

This happened before cell phones were very common. The saddest thing about the mess to me was that he relied on the police, and they did absolutely nothing -- even after being notified of the current exact location of the rapist, they took more than a hour to respond. It was a huge wake up call for the guy.

This was about the same time Clinton was governor of Arkansas and the little town of Mena, Arkansas was used as an isolated landing strip for Federal drug running. Clinton dutifully covered up what was going on in his state by any means neccessary.

excellent, i like zh'ers that know how to dial it in.  just in case. mine is a quarter mill per click. drop of 105. at 700 yds. 105/7 is 15x4=60.  but mine gets there with more velocity than a 44 mag at the muzzle.


that 155 can do mucho damage, what are you kicking it out of.

Interesting . Now why would the authorities , the government , turn on the citizens in this way? More to this story than meets the eye at first glance.

... because it sets the "bad" example that the people can do a better job on their own - it deligitimizes the government.
