The Road to Elohim Part I
Anyone who has read even the most basic literature on paramilitary, right-wing groups has inevitably stumbled upon references to the mysterious Elohim City. Elohim City first gained national notoriety in the wake of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, the largest domestic act of terrorism prior to September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, but it has long been the center of an underground movement involved in acts of terrorism, bank robberies, gun trafficking, drug trafficking, and other such endeavors. Despite its long-standing ties to crime and terrorism Elohim has long avoided any type of serious scrutiny, even after its links to Timothy McVeigh became public knowledge.
In the wake of the Oklahoma City bombing federal authorities would seemingly go to any lengths necessary to avoid bringing Elohim into the spotlight. This in turn has fueled any number of conspiracy theories concerning the true objective of Elohim, with some dismissing it as a ploy to discredit the grassroots right while others believing that it is at the heart of an ongoing campaign being waged by America’s cryptocracy. Whatever the case, Elohim and its legacy are still having an effect on the American landscape, as the recent case of serial killer Israel Keyes illustrates. What’s more, with right wing extremism and terrorism once again gripping the public consciousness Elohim is especially relevant as it was at the heart of the modern incarnation of such movements.

This series will be an examination of both Elohim and the birth of the modern right-wing paramilitary movement. Indeed, it is impossible to truly appreciate Elohim’s legacy without putting it in the context of the broader wave that it was a part of. We will first briefly consider Elohim itself and then move on to the various paramilitary groups and movements that flocked to it over the years. In the process we shall also consider the history of these groups and movements before arriving at the flowering of Elohim in the mid-90s, climaxing with Oklahoma City. So, now that the introductions and objectives are out of the way, let us begin.
