OATHKEEPER STEWART RHODES: A NATIONWIDE CALL TO ARMS
Stewart Rhodes seems to have crawled out of his hiding place under the bed and given his Oathkeepers a pretty big nation-wide directive concerning the killing of law enforcement by sniper — in Dallas Texas this past week;
Therefore, I call on all Oath Keepers, and all patriotic Americans, to come to the aid of their local police, and to the aid of their communities, and unite and coordinate in mutual defense against this orchestrated campaign of Marxist terrorism, which is the modern version of the wave of terrorism we saw in the late 60s and early 70s by the Marxist Weather Underground and related groups (who also frequently targeted police), along with the closely related Jihadist terrorism offensive, with Orlando being merely the latest in an ongoing wave of attacks. What is now needed, more than ever, is the reestablishment of the militia of the people, trained, equipped and organized in each town, to defend against what is now clearly a “Tet Offensive” American style, as Navy SEAL veteran Matt Bracken warned. While we work to reestablish that militia system, you must go armed at all times, and be prepared, at all times, to defend your community against these Marxist terrorists as well as their Islamist terror allies. Remember, they are in league, and you are their common enemy and their common targets. ~ Stewart Rhodes
AT WHAT COST WILL YOU FOLLOW HIS LEAD
Nobody expected to see the face of Stewart Rhodes in Burns, Oregon back in January as Mr. Rhodes made it quite clear his organization wanted no part in the occupation of a wildlife refuge, simply ignoring the fact that if there was ever a clear case of “Marxist style terrorism,” it was certainly rearing it’s ugly head in Harney County. Documentation of the event well proved that Burns Oregon was not just about the Hammond family. Countless hours of video proved over and over again that there were others who were feeling the heavy boot of government on the backs of their necks by Federal, State, and Local Officials who were willing to do anything to keep the people in-line.
Stewart Rhodes failed to see the broader picture in Harney County and he failed to hold the right people accountable. Why? Because he was too busy reprimanding Ammon Bundy and anyone else he could demonize, for trying to expose the “Marxist style terrorism” being perpetrated on what we now know to be – at the very least – 30% of the people in that county. Just because it wasn’t a black man shooting white cops surely doesn’t mean it was any less urgent. After all, isn’t what was going on in Harney County exactly what Rhodes claims is spreading across this Country and he has taken an oath to defend against? It could not have been any clearer than when Dwight Hammond said it himself – “This is not just about us – This is about our Country.” Surely Oathkeepers could have found one good family other than the Hammond’s, they would be willing to stand up for in Harney County.
I suppose running people out of business and charging them with terrorism – threatening people with retaliation if they said anything – confiscating people’s property, leveling high fines, enforcing unfair outrageous restrictions, and law enforcement forcing oral sex on female inmates for extra jail perks – rates pretty low on the Oathkeeper scale of what constitutes “Marxist terrorism” in Harney County Oregon for Stewart Rhodes. Rhodes did however sit in the comfort of his own home typing out some pretty wordy declarations that offered Ammon Bundy a “honorable” way to leave the refuge. Interestingly enough, I could find nothing in all those declarations that suggested Mr. Bundy should fain some imminent drone strike as a reason to high-tail-it and run.
Rumor has it that when discovery is revealed in open court during the trial it will show Stewart Rhodes actually assisted the Feds in the takedown of occupation leaders. If that proves to be true, Stewart Rhodes and his Oathkeepers will have much to answer for, including the death of LaVoy Finicum.
STEWART RHODES AND A MOST COWARDLY ACT
Burns Oregon aside, many people are wondering where Mr. Rhodes has put his sacred oath to the Bundy Family concerning the standoff back in April 2014, where Stewart Rhodes personally showed up with reinforcement from all over the country, heavily armed and ready to go full “sheep dog on sheep dog”, as he is so eloquently heard saying in speeches across the country.
So far avoiding arrest for his role at Bundy Ranch – Stewart Rhodes has not only abandoned Carol Bundy who says, “I haven’t heard from Rhodes since he “high-tailed-it and ran from the ranch back in 2014;” He has also left one of his Oathkeepers hanging out to dry.
Jerry Delemus said he answered Stewart Rhodes’s “call to action” back in April of 2014 and now he want’s to know why he is sitting in jail and Stewart Rhodes isn’t coming to his defense. Jerry’s wife, N.H. State Rep Susan Delemus told us that, “Jerry first saw the call to action on the Oathkeepers website and after discussing it with me the decision was made to go across Country and join other Oathkeepers who were staged there under the command of Stewart Rhodes.” We never dreamed that in the end Rhodes would abandon the men he called to join him.”
Susan Delemus has said that Stewart Rhodes did have a representative reach out to her – however, when she asked the rep why Rhodes hadn’t called her himself the man told her Rhodes was a busy man —
When she asked why Rhodes had not been arrested for being at the ranch – he answered, ” The FBI could find no real evidence linking Rhodes to the Bundy Ranch and there were no known photo’s of him being there armed.” Really? Just let that statement from his representative sink in a moment.
This isn’t the first time he abandoned Jerry Delemus, or the Bundy’s for that matter. After receiving what Rhodes called back in 2014 “credible intel” that a drone strike was imminent on the Bundy Ranch – Rhodes pulled his support and “ran like the coward he is,” say some who were present during the incident.
The drone strike never came, leaving many to ponder the idea that maybe, just maybe, Rhodes used a made up “drone strike” story as an “honorable” way to exit the ranch. I guess “sheep dog on sheep dog” only means so much to Stewart Rhodes.
But lets give him the benefit of the doubt and say the drone threat was real – Is the threat and “fear” of a drone strike a very honorable reason to leave a family you helped empower to take a stand, vulnerable and without protection? How could any honorable oath-taking man watch the Bundy Ranch fade from his review mirror and not consider the lives of the people he was leaving wide open to a drone attack? What kind of manly Oathkeeper does that?
Just the fact that one of his own is sitting in a Nevada jail, faced with spending the rest of his life in prison for answering a call Stewart himself made, would cause any reasonable man to wonder why Rhodes, with his Harvard Law degree, hasn’t packed his bags and taken up residence on the steps of that Las Vegas Court-house, defending these people to “the death” – like he promised he would back in 2014.
OUR BEST ADVISE
Here is some good advise for those of you listening to Stewart Rhodes and are actually considering his call to action and the taking up of arms in the name of keeping your “oath” — Don’t do it.
Ask the Bundy & Delemus families about how it feels to be empowered by the likes of Stewart Rhodes and then left to face a drone strike and later prison — Ask Eric Parker who sits in The Parhump Detention Center in Nevada and hasn’t heard one word from Stewart Rhodes in support. Ask Ammon Bundy what it feels like to take a stand and be completely dismissed by the oathkeepers as not having a legitimate cause or be deserving enough of their protection by the mighty Stewart Rhodes and his Oathkeepers. Ask the Finicum family what it’s like to lose everything while Stewart Rhodes takes a self righteous stand against what LaVoy stood and died for. Ask yourself if it will all be worth it in the end when Rhodes “high-tails -it and runs” back home only to hide under his bed when shit gets real and you’re either dead or sitting in jail. Then ask Jon Ritzheimer what it feels like to shred your Oathkeepers membership and throw it in the garbage – where it belongs. End Article
