Oath Keeper founder, Stewart Rhodes shares his views on the tragic death of LaVoy Finicum
Most anyone reading this article would be aware of the Ammon Bundy led protest in Oregon last month; a protest that ended for Mr. Bundy with his arrest, and one that ended for LaVoy Finicum with a fatal bullet fired by Oregon State Police. Although tensions were high amid eyewitness reports that Mr. Finicum was gunned down in cold blood, cooler heads prevailed while waiting on further video evidence; evidence that ultimately refuted the aforementioned reports, but was by no means “cut and dry” as the government would like you to believe.
As institutional tyranny marches onward, a relatively small number of Americans have either worked individually, or have formed groups, to answer tyranny with liberty. One such group is Oath Keepers, founded by Yale Law graduate and former paratrooper, Stewart Rhodes. Foe those unfamiliar with Oath Keepers, I have included a paragraph from their website:
Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders, who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” That oath, mandated by Article VI of the Constitution itself, is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and Oath Keepers declare that they will not obey unconstitutional orders, such as orders to disarm the American people, to conduct warrantless searches, or to detain Americans as “enemy combatants” in violation of their ancient right to jury trial.
Although I am usually in close contact with Oath Keepers National Media Director, Jason Van Tatenhove, I had not yet had a chance to get the views of Stewart Rhodes. So, I contacted Stewart and he was gracious enough to grant me the interview below.
