What about the oath sworn MILITARY VETERANS that are forming another site like this one made to gather the ex-military together in order to uphold their oath and protect the country they fight for? I logged into that site too and I think they will give us hell, Tear gas, pepper spray, and what the hell is mustard gas? Can they really get this stuff?
The protesters in Tahrir had to deal with the same thing from Mubarak's thugs. We'll be there and we'll be ready for the 'oathkeepers'.
Oathkeepers, if you're reading this, ask yourself one simple question: You swore an oath to your country. What does that mean? What is your country? Is Wall Street your country? Is the richest 1% of Americans your country? Is inequality, systemic torture, institutionalized greed your country? Or are the PEOPLE of this nation, the 99% of us struggling to get by, your country?
Look at the way vets are treated by the government and ask yourself again what you really stand for.
we oathkeepers already know this. the sites your looking at are what we whould call " Agents provocateur" and do not represent the tenants of the organization.
We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances. OATH KEEPER.
Orders We Will Not Obey ■We will NOT obey orders to disarm the American people. ■We will NOT obey orders to conduct warrantless searches of the American people. ■We will NOT obey orders to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to military tribunal. ■We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state. ■We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty. ■We will NOT obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps. ■We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext. ■We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or to “maintain control." ■We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies. ■We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances. this answers the questions of "what will the O.K. do or not do."
I have read on both sites for aobut 5 days now, you all are stressing peacef;ul protests and I dont think this will work so well for you all cause they on their site say they intend on infiltrating you all and starting intentional problems. some ideas are tear gas grenades in the night, they intend on starting fires around you all and make it look like you are doing it, they also are negotiating starting fights in the streets just to get the police to intervene??? IDK LOL I wont be on either side as it is now.... but sounds like you all are going to have fun lol
don't know what sites you have looked at but no oathkeeper i know is going to do this. we suport protests against wall street/corp./gov.
It's incredible to hear people want to be led by their "pied pipers" to work against their own interest. Who actually defends Wall Street?
I am a vet too. I was air force from 2000 to 2004. I am just letting you all know lol cause I am not going to be either place. But you all know that you will have opposing forces there besides the police and the usuals lol.
Others seem to think you all are trying to shut down the govt and economy. they dont agree with you and plan to cause problems for you to shut down your protests.
WHY DO WE HAVE TO BE ANONYMOUS TO POST!
Anyway, I am just letting you all know in good faith, they are working on the other idea from you all,
Im a vet. I'll be on Wall St!!! I HATE that I was sent to defend Halliburton trucks in the desert!!!
There is a site for gathering Anti-Protests of newyork and "The Whitehouse!?!?!?" I didnt have a clue about whitehouse until they linked it and the date of 11 - 11 on the military site.
So these people are protesting on the white house too? really?
Do you have a link for that?
Many military vets are with you. Don't buy into the lies or the trolls.
Glad to hear it, we have nothing but respect for them and we are angry about the shameful way military vets are treated in this country.
