Oath Keepers Call to Action: Protest Terrorist Inciter Maxine Waters, Thursday, July 19
Oath Keepers, Stand Against Terrorism, and Stand For Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Association, and in Support of ICE/Border Patrol as They Enforce Constitutional Immigration Laws
This is a call to action to protest outside Maxine Waters’ District Office in Los Angeles, starting Thursday, July 19, 2018 from 1pm to 3:30 pm.
NOTE: This call to action is intended for those in California or within reasonable driving range. If that does not apply to you, then just take this as information letting you know what we are doing. But please spread the word and post this on social media so others are made aware.
This is the launch of an ongoing protest that may go on for several weeks. Other patriotic groups are welcome to join us.
This is both a protest against Maxine Waters’ incitement of terrorism, and a stand FOR ICE and the Border Patrol, as they enforce the perfectly constitutional immigration and naturalization laws of this nation.
Oath Keepers has already stepped up to offer protection to ICE and Border Patrol families if they need it.
Come stand with us on the sidewalk outside Maxine Waters’ District Office.
We invite all patriotic supporters of the Constitution to join us in standing up against leftist attempts to impede the securing of our borders through intimidation and terrorism, and to stand in support of our brave ICE and Border Patrol agents who work to secure the border. Other patriotic groups are welcome to participate in this protest, so long as they support the Constitution and do not discriminate on racial lines. Please RSVP by emailing to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We will protest on Thursday, July 19, from 1pm to 3:30pm, as a start. Again, we expect this to be an ongoing protest for an indefinite time.
Why: Maxine Waters is inciting far-left terrorist violence and threats of violence. In Los Angeles, Maxine Waters told a crowd:
“If you see anybody from that [Trump] Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them! And you tell them that they are not welcome, anymore, anywhere”
Watch the video here:
As Fox News reports, “Those comments came after White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and Homeland Security Security Kirstjen Nielsen were pressured to leave restaurants amid the controversy over the administration’s immigration enforcement policies.”
This goes far beyond mere protest. As Tucker Carlson pointed out, the far left now asserts that the Bill of Rights only applies to those who agree with them. Their views are protected by the First Amendment, while your views are ‘hate speech” and anyone who doesn’t share the left’s views no longer has freedom of movement or association. They can’t go to the movies, they can’t go to restaurants without being exposed to harassment and intimidation.
The far left has recently also threatened ICE and Border Patrol agents and their families, Trump family members, and conservative officials nationwide:
And the backdrop to all of this is the well-documented, numerous examples of actual far-left political violence since Trump’s election by such groups as Antifa or BAMN (By Any Means Necessary), both organizations that advocate and directly use violence to influence political behavior, which is the definition of terrorism:
“the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives” (28 C.F.R. Section 0.85).
It is not merely that targeted people may be yelled at as they go about their day. They will be in real fear of being physically attacked or they will be physically attacked just as numerous others have been, such as this woman who dared to want to attend a public speech on the UC Berkeley Campus that Antifa didn’t like. Her punishment? Being pepper sprayed and hit in the head with a metal pole, resulting in a concussion:
Also see this Tucker Carlson interview with the Marxist leader of the California based Marxist terrorist group BAMN as she openly endorses political violence to silence those she disagrees with, including footage of her and her followers committing assault to drive people she disagrees with “off our streets”:
Which is exactly why Oath Keepers stepped up in California and across the nation to successfully protect numerous public speaking events against the direct threat of Antifa and BAMN violence, including twice in the MLK Park in downtown Berkeley.
Given the clear track record of Antifa, BAMN, and other far-left groups, which openly use violence and the threat of violence to intimidate and silence their political enemies, Maxine Waters either knew or should have known that her calls for people to harass Trump Admin officials would be answered by those inclined toward terrorist violence. It stretches credibility for her to assert she didn’t know that. And she also knew or should have known that this would cause fear of violence in the people she is targeting, which is in fact exactly what she wants to do, as noted above, to pressure them to change their views. She is inciting political violence (terrorism).
Rather than realizing that she crossed the line into incitement of violence for political purposes (terrorism), Maxine Waters doubled down on it and made it clear that she wants people to harass Trump Admin employees specifically to change their behavior by changing their political views and forcing them to turn on President Trump and pressure him to change his policy positions.
Maxine Waters is inciting terrorist violence and threats of violence. We need to stand up against this. As Oath Keepers Founder Stewart Rhodes recently stated:
“It is time for all of us “sheepdogs” within the American warrior class (police, military, first-responders) to unite in common defense of the Constitution we all swore to defend, and in defense of our homes, families, and communities against those who would destroy this nation from within, in alliance with enemies from without, such as the drug cartels who now terrorize all of Mexico and who are now bringing their terror, rape, murder, and corruption north into our nation. Remember, our oath is to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
In addition to coming out to protest, please also contact Maxine Waters’ office and let them know what you think of her incitement to violence. Contact her office at: Phone: (323) 757-8900. Fax: (323) 757-9506
Please refrain from making any statements that can be construed as threats, or construed as racially motivated, lest they accuse us of what their own side has already done.
And for those who will be on the sidewalk with us, please be sure you keep your cool and stay calm, collected, and professional in your dealings with the public and any counter-protesters who may show up.
For the Republic,
