2019.10.09 SPLC mis-labels Oath Keepers as Anti-Government
The SPLC refers to Oath Keepers as, "one of the largest radical antigovernment groups in the U.S. today". This is a libelous delusion that has no basis in reality. Oath Keepers has ≈35,000 present and former law enforcement officials, military veterans, and first responders as members, whose self-stated objective is "a non-partisan association... who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to 'defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic'". That is all: they voluntarily full-fill their oath of duty, even though they have left public service. Since the Constitution is in the way of some progressive power grabs, the far left likes to label the Oaths of our Military/Police/Firemen as anti-government, when it is just pro-law of the land. Of 35,000 members, the media has found a handful that did scummy things, and tars the whole organization by those exceptions. But by that standard, those media agencies or the SPLC would be labeled far worse.
