The Oath Keepers are tired of being marginalized as “militia members” — so the pro-gun militia group is planning to carry their anti-government message into local government institutions to conscript unsuspecting neighbors into their yearned-for revolution.
The group’s founder, Stewart Rhodes, outlined the plan Aug. 29 at the group’s “Appalachian summit” in Gilbert, West Virginia, but the speech was recently posted online by the Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights.
The three-day event attracted members of the Oath Keepers and Three Percent militia groups, as well as Tea Party and other conservative or right-wing activists.
Rhodes urged them to join volunteer fire departments, search and rescue teams, ambulance crews, police auxiliary and reserve officer groups — which he said had essentially replaced militias in community life.
He said these volunteers are “perceived as a good guy” by their neighbors, who might not be receptive to invitations to join a militia, and go “shopping for talent” to identify potential members of neighborhood watch groups that are armed vigilante groups.
“(Militia) has been turned into the M-word,” Rhodes complained. “It’s a dirty word now — just like the N-word.”
Oh yeah, just like the "N" word. Except for the fact that nobody screams "militia" at you when they are trying to cave your skull in or hang you from a tree for looking at a white girl.
This guy Rhodes also suggested that Oath Keepers hold block parties in order to find potential members.
I can see it now, "Hey how about those burgers? Good huh? Hey you wanna help us overthrow the government?"
You know this plan might have worked better if this idiot had not stood on a stage with a microphone and announced that this was their plan.
I'm just saying.
