Shout your oath in the tyrant's face.

Over at Western Rifle Shooter's Association here, ( Pete has given the muster drumbeat for all Three Percenters to be on the Mall in Washington D.C. to renew or swear their oaths to the Constitution. The media ignored the Muster on the Green in Lexington, Massachussett's on 19 April. We must make such a large turnout in DC that they cannot ignore us.

In Lexington, I watched current-serving and retired military men, current serving and retired law enforcement officers and members of the armed citizenry of the United States take the oath, some for the second time, some for the first, some of them with tears streaming down their faces.

I second Pete's call. Shout your oath in the tyrant's face. I will.

See you in D.C.

'Shout Our Oaths in the Tyrant's Face' - Washington, DC -- June 13, 2009

Join the Oath Keepers ( on the Mall in Washington, DC on June 13, 2009 as they join Gathering of Eagles ( and Pro-Troop Events for a "Muster on the Mall".

As the storm clouds continue to build across our country, take one day from your busy schedule and renew your oath to protect and defend the Constitution from ALL enemies, foreign and domestic.

You and your fellow Americans, military and civilians alike, will demonstrate by joining us in Washington your resolve to do whatever it takes to return this country to its heritage as a limited-government republic.

Stand with us, and tell your public servants that you will not only disobey, but actively oppose all of the Ten Orders We Will Not Obey. (

Show the statists of both parties and every government agency that you have the courage to stand up in public and tell them each:


As Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes says:

With the latest DHS smear document, the Domestic Extremism Lexicon, ( labelling "constitutionalists" and "patriots" as extremists (which means the same thing as "terrorists"), it is clear that if you dare to support the Constitution, and dare to quote the founding fathers of this nation, and take the Constitution seriously, then you will be considered an "extremist" and a threat to the powers that be among the political elite.

This is the tactic used by all governments that turn oppressive: use vague, broad brushed labeling of people as "enemies of the state" to marginalize them and increase the artificial divide between the people and the police and military, and then use that labeling and marginalization to make people afraid to speak up, to chill their speech, and silence them out of fear of being singled out for persecution. The DHS reports are such broad smears that they basically boil down to "anyone who doesn't agree with us is a potential terrorist."

The final stage of persecution is to actually apply all the powers of the state against anyone who does dare to speak out, arresting them on trumped up charges of terrorism, for example. We are still in the smear and marginalization stage, and are also beginning the chilling of speech stage, but we can see where this is headed.

But as these veterans point out in their Oath Keepers videos, ( the DHS smears of veterans, constitutionalists and patriots is backfiring just as badly as Obama's suggestion that disabled and injured veterans pay for their own medical care. Nothing is waking up the people, and especially the veterans, like these leaked government "reports."

This is not Germany, the USSR, or communist China.

This is America, and attempts to chill our speech and marginalize us only make us stronger and more resolved to speak out.

Join us as we shout our Oaths in the tyrant's face, publicly defying this man and his ilk, each of whom wants you cowering and terrified as they execute their masters' commands:

See you on the Mall.

Love to be there, but economic situation forces a no-show. I'll take the oath on May 30th, when I see my nephew (active U.S.N. and an Oath Keeper!).

Mike, are you going to be there?


Eric said...

That guy on the bottom seems like a nice guy

Steve K said...

I would attend, however my younger sister graduates from high school that same day and that precludes this.

AvgJoe said...

Mike, about that picture at the bottom. Why is it that in America LE's wear the same kind of mask that terrorist wear in other parts of the world when the kill helpless men, woman and children.
I would think that if someone was really enforcing laws that kept other people safe they would be proud of what they were doing and not hide their faces like criminal terrorist.
There has to be a connection between these two groups. Maybe a nice photo of one of our masked LE's next to a Islam terrorist with their arms over each other shoulders with their firearms over their other arm. Showing the masked brotherhood.
In fact a poker run might be in order for making up some extra money for such an event. To help get some folks back who maybe a little short on cash to get back there. I'll look into that this weekend with the boys. Thanks for doing this story and making this even better known.

You're doing a great service to us, Mike. Just stopped by to alert you to the ATF legal notice in todays Wall Street Journal (and probably other papers). Recall the Oklahoma House this week passing a version of a sovereignty bill - then peruse the list of seizures. My boss and I were shocked at the disproportionate amount of guns seized from the state of Oklahoma. So one has to wonder, what does the fed fear in Oklahoma? Ok - maybe not wonder - I think it's pretty clear what they fear. What concerns me is the (perhaps) quiet way it's being dealt with by the ATF.

What Bill said . . . buy me a ticket somebody, I can hardly afford the bills . . . that I . . . incurred for myself . . . .

AvgJoe, they wear balaclavas to hide their faces. Colonel Cooper was convinced that only a man ashamed of his actions would cover his face.

A Long Roll on the Muster Drum(s) might be the attention-getter y'all are seeking? At least 'they' won't be able to say they didn't hear you! Period costume might attract the MSM. God bless you all.

I live in the DC area, but I'm still gonna be in Afghanistan on the 13th of June.

Barring another deployment, count me in for the next gathering, though.
