Stewart Rhodes, the man with the Big Vision – Oathkeepers leading with all the vision and imagination of the Rain Man, “Hammonds don’t want our help” “Hammonds don’t want our help” “Hammonds don’t want our help”.
What should be obvious to everybody is that even if the Hammonds did want our help, we couldn’t give it to them. They need a good lawyer and we don’t know any – do we Stewart? Does that mean that we should just forget about Harney County and the other ranchers, farmers and property owners? I don’t think so.
This was your opportunity to really be a leader Stewart and you failed. A good leader is nimble. He thinks on his feet and turns on a dime when necessary. Problems come up and a good leader deals with them. This was a tremendous opportunity to make a big showing of dissatisfaction with the Administrative State. People were paying attention and they were willing to get off the couch and go stand for something and your guidance to them was to simply return to your couch because we can’t save one family. REALLY? Do you really think this country can be saved one family at a time? I seriously doubt that. In fact, in one of your Rain Man videos you said you know the actions of the BLM are designed to depopulate the west. And apparently, you’re willing to go along because we can’t save one family. I’m speechless.
Fortunately Stewart, there are patriot groups that did not follow your mis-leadership. The groups that have shown up to support the PEOPLE OF HARNEY COUNTY include Idaho III%, Oregon III%, III% National, the Pacific Patriot Network, the Central Oregon Constitutional Guard, the Western Mountain Rangers, the North American Coalition of Constitutional Militias and if I forgot anybody, my most sincere apologies.
They are not there for a showdown with the Feds. The Hammonds will turn themselves in and nobody is going to try to interfere with that. The objective of the rally was to show up and to show the world that we care about what’s happening to our country and we are not going to live under the tyranny of the Administrative State. We are not going to allow them to depopulate the west. What an irony that I have to say – with the Oathkeepers or without them, we are making a stand for our country.
“OUTSIDERS NOT WELCOMED BY SOME IN OREGON
Many locals have told the outside groups to stay away, concerned their presence could lead to violence. The Hammonds, as well, have rebuffed the Bundy’s support for their cause. “Neither Ammon Bundy nor anyone within his group/organization speak for the Hammond Family,” the Hammonds’ lawyer W. Alan Schroeder wrote to Sheriff David Ward. Dwight Hammond has said he and his son plan to peacefully report to prison Monday as ordered by the judge. “We gave our word that’s what we would do, and we intend to act on it,” he told The Associated Press last week.”
The AP news article simply states: “…The protesters went to Malheur National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday following a peaceful rally in support of two Oregon ranchers facing additional prison time for arson.”
Arson- really? The article of course, for space reasons or other reasons is not elaborating on the case or really what it is about. What I am glad for is that it is in the news at all.
Thanks- had I not read your first article on this topic, I wouldn’t have known what it was really all about from the facts.
Some are convinced that Oath Keepers has been infiltrated and subverted. They, like many patriot groups past and present have been neutralized.
You are correct, Laura. I realized that oat keepers were controlled opposition back in 2009. I always give all these groups the communist litmus test, investigating the leaders, where their financial support comes from, etc. It has always worked.
