Blanchard, Michigan homeowner Ted Visner is threatening to use “all appropriate force” to prevent local authorities from physically evicting him from his property.
In his YouTube diatribe, Visner levies serious accusations against the Michigan courts, claiming they plan to unjustly evict him. But when the sheriff’s deputies come knocking on his door to serve the notice, he promises to be ready and waiting.
“I will not be evicted from my property, and, when I say that, what I mean is I will use all appropriate force to defend my property,” Visner said in his video.
He goes on to explain that similar scenarios of unjust evictions are occurring all throughout the state, but declares that it has to stop now.
“The tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants,” said Visner. “I guess it’s gonna’ start in Blanchard, Michigan. I fully expect to stand alone here, and I fully expect to be killed.”
He concluded the video by asking for prayer from the people, and help from God.
“Please say a prayer,” he said, continuing after a lengthy pause. “God help us. God help us all.”
State militia group Three Percenter’s Club had planned to reach out Visner, but after conducting some of their own research into the matter they had a drastic change of heart.
On July 12, YouTuber YouTube Junkie, a self-proclaimed Three Percenter from Ohio, said the militia group was about to drive to Visner’s location.
“I’m from Ohio. Part of the 111% United Patriots/Militia. We are contacting Ted and driving up as soon as possible. We appreciate your support,” YouTube Junkie commented.
Several days later however, on July 17, YouTube Junkie commented:
“DO. NOT. BELIEVE. THIS. GUY ‘TED’ … I am telling you I am warning you all! This guy is a LOOSE cannon… Do NOT get involved with this.. He has serious issues, the Courts know him to well.. The Court is NOT screwing him over he has DEFAULTED on his loan. I extended a welcoming hand to this fool from the 111% United Patriots of Ohio and he is full of shit! Take my word or don’t.. But I’m telling you now, we’ve done our research. Ted Visner, you are a low class piece of shit for asking for help from us trusting Militia groups and I am absolutely appalled at the way you are broadcasting yourself still. You defaulted on your loan, own up to it. The gig is up. Shows over buddy.”
The Three Percenters also issued an official statement on their Facebook page.
“This is not a situation where Mr. Visner’s rights are being violated. Under Michigan law he has been receiving his due process,” they wrote. “We cannot with the best intentions of our people ask them to go to the front lines and risk their lives for someone who refuses to provide us with the necessary documentation for us to know this is a just cause.”
