Convergence of Crises Demands Oath Keepers Show Leadership by Example
“Tennessee shooter targeted white victims, similar to Dallas ambush,” CBS News reports. “The TBI says 37-year-old Lakeem Keon Scott was armed with at least two weapons, an automatic-style rifle, a pistol and a large amount of ammunition…”
“Automatic-style rifle…” Tell me CBS News doesn’t know better. Still, it plays right into Violence Policy Center grant-feeder-in-chief Josh Sugarmann’s “assault weapon” disinformation tip (originally published in 1988 and still “working” as planned):
The weapons’ menacing looks, coupled with the public’s confusion over fully automatic machine guns versus semi-automatic assault weapons—anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun—can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons.
Distracting from the real issues and onto “menacing” guns, “progressive” policies responsible for the breakdown of the Republic get a pass, and control is strengthened. That’s something Barack Obama understands, as he exploits the Dallas murders to lay the blame on “people armed with powerful weapons.” It’s something Hillary Clinton understands as well, as she pronounces “white people” to be the catalyst for the carnage.
In addition to Tennessee, police officers have been targeted in Missouri and Georgia.
The FBI has issued an alert in Louisiana warning about potential riots and violence against police officers. Corroborating that potential, the New Black Panther Party is protesting in Baton Rouge against the “Pig Department.”
“Dr. Mauricelm-Lei Millere, an ‘advisor’ to the New Black Panther Party and head of the African American Defense League posted on Facebook on Friday,” Vocativ is reporting. “The message was accompanied by an image of blue and red fists embracing each other and the hashtag #BloodsAndCripsUnite, in reference to the notorious street gangs, which are typically rivals.”
The good “doctor’s” message:
WE ARE CALLING ON THE GANGS ACROSS THE NATION! ATTACK EVERYTHING IN BLUE EXCEPT THE MAIL MAN, UNLESS HE IS CARRYING MORE THAN MAIL! … We are Calling on every gang (Crips and Bloods) and gangsta across the four corners to put in some work because these racist crackas have put themselves in your business. It’s time for the Crips and Blood to shed some blood. Know what um saying!?
Evidently, this cowardly lunatic, who calls for violence by others (including against blacks who don;t share his fanatical hatred) but never leads by example, has a workaround for the fact that Crips wear blue.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch, fresh off the heels of giving Hillary a pass on violations for which less connected people have been prosecuted, is out there encouraging more protests.
“We will continue to safeguard your constitutional rights and to work with you in the difficult mission of building a better nation and a brighter future,” she promised, with fingers crossed behind her back – at least as far as the Second Amendment is concerned.
Meanwhile, some of the people the AG was giving her pep talk to have been busy over in Phoenix, hurling rocks and death threats at police.
But the problem, our Democrat “leaders” have assured us, is “powerful” guns and privileged white people. And when there’s a political problem, naturally that demands a solution. Get enough ignorant people spooked and they’ll beg you for it.
Turn the heat up enough and don’t look to the Republicans for leadership. Word is Paul Ryan is at his “wit’s end” because he can’t muster enough votes to pass a kinder, gentler citizen disarmament edict as his way of caving after Orlando.
Expect that heat to turn up. Especially with this summer’s political conventions and the threats by radical elements to disrupt both, with a special emphasis on derailing the Trump candidacy in Cleveland at the RNC.
NavyJack has produced credible documentation showing some have a “summer of chaos” goal that can lead to martial law. And while Dr. Edwin Viera show us how there is no Constitutional mechanism for Obama to suspend November elections and retain power, there’s a reason why totalitarianism is called “tyranny,” and it could very well be something even worse will arise from ashes.
Obviously no one has a crystal ball. We may have just passed through the worst of it – for now. That said, how many cities need to burn like Los Angeles did before the political consensus is “We must do something”? What will that “something” look like, and does anyone expect it won’t involve edicts on your guns?
It’s because we don’t know, and because we must assume responsibility for ourselves in times of crisis, especially when cut off from outside contact, that the oath must take on a special significance in guiding our actions and responses. Because of that, Oath Keepers have a special obligation in times of crisis to set an example of mature clear-headedness, intelligent leadership and followership, and principled personal conduct to inspire those around us to help preserve, protect and restore.
With all the hate being spewed by the collectivists and exploited by opportunistic politicians, now seems as good a time as any to reiterate a key and non-negotiable provision in the Oath Keepers bylaws:
No person who advocates, or has been or is a member, or associated with, any organization, formal or informal, that advocates discrimination, violence, or hatred toward any person based upon their race, nationality, creed, or color, shall be entitled to be a member or associate member.
