Convoy of military vehicles spotted in Kentucky sporting Trump flag.

Courtesy of TPM: 

A convoy of military vehicles flying a "Trump" flag was caught on video driving through Louisville, Kentucky, on Sunday. 

In the recording, four vehicles—the first flying a blue flag with "TRUMP" and "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN" emblazoned in white—drive down Interstate 65, according to a report by the Courier-Journal. 

IndivisibleKY, a self-described activist organization formed after President Donald Trump's 2016 election victory, posted video of the convoy on its website on Monday.

Apparently there is some confusion as to whom the vehicles belong.

Tracey Metcalf, administrator for the Military Vehicle Preservation Association, said the color of the convoy suggests the vehicles did or do belong to the Army. 

Patrick Hodges, a spokesman for Ft. Knox, told the Courier-Journal that the convoy was not theirs, as did Maj. Stephen Martin, director of public affairs for the Kentucky National Guard. 

Army spokeswoman Lt. Col. Jennifer Johnson said that photos of the vehicles were "too blurry to say if they belonged to Army units," according to the report. 

A Defense Department spokesman said that flying such a flag would "violate regulations" and suggested that the vehicles could be military surplus vehicles purchased by civilians.

I am not sure which is more troubling, that the military might be all in for Trump, or that there are rabid Trump supporters with an arsenal of military weapons and armored vehicles in their possession.

    He already has his own personal body guard contingent who do not have to abide by fed. regulations in regard to protestors... Hiring goons with ex-army vehicles is a logical step. Hair Furor is escalating his war on Americans who dis him.

  3. Well, considering what is going on at Dulles, I wouldn't be surprised if there are large pockets of the military also more "Trump" than "U.S. Military."

    Probably think it is their duty to ensure there is no military coup, since that possibility is more of a danger now than ever before.

      Most of us really don't think about the military at all unless we are unfortunate enough to live near a base where they fly loud planes at inopportune times for sleeping. I've never known anyone who was a military member and even though I'm in an area with bases I've not ever met one.

      They kind of keep to themselves and do their own thing, whatever that is. It was never a job that any of my family wanted to take.

    The same kinds of vehicles that will be used against us.

  8. Looks like an ISIS convoy to me.

    I've been out of uniform for 20 years, however, one of those vehicles appeared to have an RDF antenna on it (radio direction finding). All vehicles had van bodies . . . sonsofbitches are listening to us.

  10. "too blurry" my ass!!

    I downloaded the video, paused it, got a screen grab, enlarged it, and read vehicle numbers that should correlate to a unit. While not absolutely certain, the numbers I got were:

    OT?" The bias doesn't exist because we only believe what we want to believe, but instead because we fail to ask the correct questions about new information and our own beliefs."It isn't that we don't want to discover the truth, at least in the microcosm of reasoning tested in the experiment. All people needed was a strategy which helped them overcome the natural human short-sightedness to alternatives."

    Funny you should say that about the military being all in for Trump. I have been Hounded by a cousin in law stationed by Fort Knox about how much we don't know, and how she gets military videos showing how the Video of Trump mocking the disabled reporter was was faked. These people are fucking nuts. I fully believe the military cant wait for WW3. She is so delusional and keeps telling me to get over it. Trump won. Her husband is a blathering idiot from ptsd, not wanting to take his struggles lightly, but HOW can she not see how bad our situation is right now?

      True, OP here. My cousin went in to straighten his ass out - he was a male prostitute and drug abuser with a record. Also felt like the black sheep of family and was desperately seeking family atmosphere.
      Which.....leads me to what I WANT to say every time his crazy wife writes to me that we should be thankful that he is protecting us. I really want to say "Look, hon, I've known him for longer than you have and he went into the army cause he felt he was hitting bottom and needed a way out, a way to get healthcare and an education . There was NO altruistic "save us from XYZ about it". He gave his youth and his mental health to the US army fighting bullshit wars in the middle east. I hope he thinks it was worth it?" Perhaps in his case it was I guess. Big price to pay though.
      But I don't write it. What is the point? I just have hidden her FB now.

      Oh yes 4:15, your cousin represents the 'entire' US Military. Gonna make a big prediction here and guess he never made Admiral, or Tank Commander, or F-16 Pilot, or even Sergeant.

      Just curious, do you like your price of gas? Do you like the price of all the chinese goods you buy at your big box? Do you like the relative regional stability you have, which allows you the leisure time to look down your liberal nose to scoff at the military?

      Hey genius, since Alaska was over 51% for Trump and only about 36% for Hillary, your pretend enemies are going to be much more than just a couple dudes in big pickups.

      Even if they don't have big flags, your more incognito pretend enemies are also the little old lady driving a Oldsmobile, it is also the schoolteacher driving a cavalier, it is also a waitress driving an accord, it is also the lawyer driving their BMW, it is also college kid driving a pathfinder... you get the drift.

      THEY ARE ALL AROUND YOU SO WATCH OUT!... you know, while you are observing and learning for the big resistance. (cough)

      Or you could just vote in the next election and accept we live in a democracy with standard election cycles. Elections that have consequences.

    A spokesman for Ft. Knox, Patrick Hodges, said it wasn't theirs.

    Same for the Kentucky National Guard, said Maj. Stephen Martin, director of public affairs.

    A Defense Department spokesman, Maj. Jamie Davis, who examined images of the four-truck procession for the Courier-Journal, said he doesn't think it belonged to any service branch — and that the vehicles may have been military.

    Davis said it would violate regulations to fly such a flag on a military vehicle. “That is not standard procedure,” he said. He also said it would have been against the rules to run a military convoy without unit markings on the trucks.

    Chris Rowzee, a spokeswoman for indivisibleky, a new activist organization in Louisville, said that as a retired veteran who served 28 years in the Air Force, “I can't even begin to describe how disturbed I am by this.”

    While Donald Trump is president, she said, the military is supposed to be a nonpolitical organization in which servicemen and women swear an oath to the Constitution, not to any particular president.

    “To show a partisan political leaning on a military vehicle is very reminiscent of Nazi Germany,” she said.

    I find it rather disconcerting that no one in the military knew for sure whether it was theirs or surplus. What in the hell are they selling these as surplus anyway.

  27. My husband called them "recovery vehicles" when I showed him the video. He's a retired infantry officer, totally and permanently disabled by exposure to Agent Orange in Vietnam. He has dementia and his short-term memory is very poor, but he remembers the distant past better. He also said "Crane," as he watched the video.

    No doubt they're just a bunch of paramilitary/survivalist nuts showing off. These people will buy any military surplus they can afford. There's a group of them in Washington who like to tool around the wilderness in GAMA goats and HMMWVs.
