CALL TO ACTION: Defend Free Speech at Flynn Hearing Dec 18
UPDATE 12/18/2018: Judge delays Flynn sentencing. “Sullivan also asked Flynn and his counsel whether they would want to delay the sentencing, seemingly hinting that Flynn would face a tough sentence if the decision had gone through Tuesday.” https://thehill.com/policy/national-security/421901-flynn-asks-judge-to-delay-sentencing

Oath Keepers and Patriots,
If you are within driving range of Washington DC we need you to come and stand up for free speech this next Tuesday, December 18, at General Michael Flynn’s sentencing hearing.
Federal Court District of Columbia
333 Constitution Ave
Sentencing scheduled for 10:00am EST
Recommended Arrival 9:00am EST
We understand this is short notice but if you can make it, please do.
It is important for Oath Keepers, along with other patriots, to stand up for Lieutenant General Michael Flynn’s freedom of speech as well as the freedom of speech of his supporters.
Antifa is expected to be there and may attempt to silence by force and intimidation, which is their standard M.O.
Oath Keepers will be there to help protect people from unlawful violence as consistently perpetrated by Antifa.
We have great confidence in Washington D.C. Metro PD, which is very experienced with handling civil disturbances, but it would be best to have capable patriots on hand to protect people from being singled out for assault, especially as they travel to and from the hearing.
Chris Cox of Bikers for Trump has confirmed that members of his group will be there.
This is General Flynn’s sentencing hearing, so expect to be there as long as the hearing may take, and there is also the possibility he may make a statement to media afterward. Build in enough time.
Anyone attending should make themselves aware of local, state and federal regulations in regards to lawful concealed carry, pocket knives or anything else that could be construed as a weapon (in the past this has included flag poles, signs, OC spray and almost anything else ruled a weapon by local and federal law enforcement).
Washington DC is a very prohibitive environment. Unless you are a current serving or retired police officer with appropriate credentials, don’t even think about bringing a firearm into DC (we don’t like it, but that is reality in D.C.)
Oath Keepers et all will accept NO responsibility for unlawful actions or incidents conducted by members or non-members in attendance. You need to stay within the law.
Also, we are going to stand up for free speech and to Protect people against unlawful violence (terroristic violence and threat of violence). That means lawful self defense and defense of others only. If you attend, you need to remain calm, cool, collected and professional.
Unless you or someone under your care is attacked, let Washington D.C. Metro PD handle Antifa.
Note from Stewart Rhodes:
As always, our primary motivation here is defense of free speech. Period. However, I will say that it is a very common tactic, when no substantive crime can be found, to accuse and prosecute for “lying to Federal Agents” during an investigation, even over innocent mistakes, omissions, or slight inconsistencies in statements. I’ve seen it many times, including in cases that never made the media and some that were never formally prosecuted. It is a method of state (and deep state) intimidation, to coerce cooperation.
And if “they” want to punish you, it is used as a way to get at you when they have nothing else.
Just ask Martha Stewart how that works.
PS- Our presence there doesn’t mean we agree with General Flynn on everything. For example, he called Edward Snowden a traitor while we called Snowden a hero and Oath keeping patriot (and we stand by that).
But this isn’t about General Flynn’s past support for government surveillance programs we oppose. This is about free speech.
And, closely related, this is also about the globalist deep state attempt to contain or even stop President Trump, who is a wild-card maverick nationalist, by their typical “skunkworks” (including gag orders and intimidation by means of prosecution, as I stated above).
And please note we also don’t agree with Trump on everything, such as some of his statements on guns.
But we stand for free speech, we stand against the globalists, and we stand against the deep state.
If you believe in the Oath Keepers missions to protect and defend the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the Oath, to support free speech, and to help our fellow citizens when disasters strike
