OK this is bugging me, does anyone know what the lightening bolt to the left is??? How in the world did I get over 80???
What I know of the Oath Keepers, I respect and there aren't many groups I can say that about in this area of things.
Having said that, I wish they'd keep some things in a more discreet communication method. Those guys preparing is one thing. A general call across the public, as some might take it to be, is a real real bad thing.
Oath Keepers equate to professionals in my experience and opinion. Bubba the bone head with the gonzo gun show AR-15 or AK-47 with the North Hollywood shootout drums all set to go are a menace to society and everyone around them. Domestic animals too for that matter!
It's all about just who or..what.. we're talking about forming a Militia. I think the reality runs the spectrum from those I'd welcome....to those I'd avoid...to those I'd feel were as bad as whatever it was everyone was worked up enough for them to be out over.
Some train medical, topographic map reading and survival, suited to the local region. Others? Well, others train road blocks, body armor and what they kinda figure immediate action drills ought to look like and small unit tactics looked like in a war movie. It's the difference of walk to or run from, IMO.

Why the need of progressives to group anyone based on ethnicity is beyond me.
Then again, some of us don't judge people based on skin colour.
The organizers, the leaders of the Oath Takers, those calling for the formation of what's basically a private army, the most rabid gun nuts, old white folk perhaps?

What the hell does skin color got anything to do with this?
Everything. You know what color the gun nuts are. You also know what color the "prepper pirates" are, the ones the gun nuts plan to kill.
