Patriotic Group to Build Armed ‘Defensible’ Neighborhood Fortress

A group of like-minded patriots, bound together by pride in American exceptionalism, plan on building an armed community to protect their liberty.

The group, named Citadel, intends to purchase 2,000 to 3,000 acres for the project in western Idaho.  The community will comprise of 3,500 to 7,000 families of patriotic Americans who “voluntarily choose to live together in accordance with Thomas Jefferson’s ideal of Rightful Liberty.”

According to the Citadel website, Rightful Liberty means that “neighbors keep their noses out of other neighbors’ business, that neighbors live and let live.”

Citadel explains that residents in the community will be bound by the following:

  • Patriotism
  • Pride in American Exceptionalism
  • Our proud history of Liberty as defined by our Founding Fathers, and
  • Physical preparedness to survive and prevail in the face of natural catastrophes –such as Hurricanes Sandy or Katrina — or man-made catastrophes such as a power grid failure or economic collapse.

Residents should also agree that being “prepared for the emergencies of life and being proficient with the American icon of Liberty — the Rifle — are prudent measures.”

Some of the benefits of the Citadel community include a safe, well-prepared, patriotic community where children will be educated in school, not indoctrinated.

The community will be protected by a perimeter wall that will be inaccessible to “tourists.”  Each neighborhood within the community will have lower walls, dividing the town into defensible sections.

The website has a link to applications where prospective residents can sign up.  According to Citadel, more than 200 families have completed applications, even before any land has been purchased.

While Citadel may sound wonderful to many who are reading this, the community has posted a warning on their home page:

“Marxists, Socialists, Liberals and Establishment Republicans will likely find that life in our community is incompatible with their existing ideology and preferred lifestyles.”

Citadel says that every patriot selected to live within the community “will voluntarily agree to follow the footsteps of our Founding Fathers by swearing to one another our lives, our fortunes and our Sacred Honor to defend one another and Liberty against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

    It sounds good if it is real,but it does makes me wonder if it is going to be real,or is it going to be a cult like Jim Jones was and in the end your have to drink the kool-aid? Older people will remember Jim Jones, Younger ones need to look him up. Keep your powder dry!

      It sounds like a trap to me, get everyone who is libery minded to either apply or ask about the facility. You leave information about your self and Homeland Security has a big fat list of potential right wingers who are only interested in the Constitution , independence and self reliance. Sorry sounds like a great format in theory but this is not business as usual. Every trick in the book will be used by the current administration…….to discredit the law abiding citezens of this country.Be stealthy but have a plan to act, don’t let everyone know your business or it will bite you in the a–

    After two years have gone by, I have to say I think your right Tom. Hate to say it but the U.S. is lost. Back in 1986 my wife and I moved to the hills build a cabin and living off the grid before it was called that. We were living free and loved it,Now we are back in the city, worst place to be! Keep your powder dry!
