The Oath Keepers organization has announced its withdrawal from a pro-Constitution rally due to be held near Washington DC on April 19 following threats of violence made by participants in the march, highlighting once again the danger posed by provocateurs who seek to cause mayhem in order to discredit peaceful political groups.
A press release put out by Oath Keepers states that the board of directors of the organization decided to withdraw from the “Restore the Constitution” rally in Virginia, “Because of published statements by some participants in the upcoming Virginia rally.”
The Washington Post claims that the reason for the pull out was because the organizers of the event were planning to display guns and were circulating inflammatory rhetoric, but the Oath Keepers press release contradicts this, clearly pointing out that the organizers are not at fault and the problem was with the behavior of some of the participants.
“Oath Keepers as an organization feels that a confrontational stance, such as has been published, places this event, in public perception, outside the terms of our stated and published mission,” states the press release. “The mission of Oath Keepers is not to confront the government. Instead, our mission is to reach out to people within government – to police, military, firefighters and first responders – to teach them about their obligations under the oath they took to defend the Constitution, to increase their knowledge of the Constitution, and to inspire them to defend it by refusing to obey unconstitutional, unlawful orders.”
Oath Keepers is asking members who attend the rally to do so as individuals and not representatives of the Oath Keepers group, adding that Oath Keeper garments should not be displayed or worn at the event.
“Oath Keepers shall, as planned, participate in the Washington D.C. Second Amendment March on April 19 (www.secondamendmentmarch.com) and shall offer the public an Oath Keepers ceremony in which citizens can themselves stand and reverently take an oath to defend the Constitution right along with current and prior service police, military, and fire personnel (who will be renewing their oaths), all together as patriotic Americans. Please see our banner announcement for this march in Washington D.C. on April 19, 2010, at www.oathkeepers.org,” concludes the press release.

Despite the fact that the Oath Keepers have consistently outlined their peaceful platform and mission to simply encourage police and military to abide by their oath to uphold the Constitution, the group has been demonized by the establishment media and the Southern Poverty Law Center alongside extremist militias and domestic terrorists.
With the corporate media constantly invoking a link between the Tea Parties and violence, and with anarchist groups openly revealing their plans to pose as Tea Party members while carrying out embarrassing stunts in an effort to discredit the movement, it seems almost inevitable that some kind of flashpoint will be manufactured and then exploited by the media during this week’s protests.
As we highlighted yesterday, socialist thugs are openly announcing that they will infiltrate Tea Party ranks and then stage false flags which the media will no doubt hastily pin on the myriad of different groups that comprise the Tea Party movement.
While the man behind the underhanded effort to “crash the tea party,” Joshua Levin, claims that the action will be non-violent, numerous posts on his website’s forum suggest otherwise.
Levin told the Associated Press yesterday that he had organized 65 leaders in cities across the country to coordinate the false flags, which would include portraying people who question Barack Obama’s birthright as crazed lunatics.
“Every time we have someone on camera saying that Barack Obama isn’t an American citizen, we want someone sitting next to him saying, ‘That’s right, he’s an alien from outer space!’” Levin said.
“Do I think every member of the tea party is a homophobe, racist or a moron? No, absolutely not,” Levin said. “Do I think most of them are homophobes, racists or morons? Absolutely.”
However, if the Tea Parties are full of “racists, homophobes, and morons” as Levin claims, then how come armies of anarchists have to be recruited to pose as “racists, homophobes, and morons”? This blatant contradiction exposes Levin’s efforts for precisely what they are – a brutal and thuggish effort to crush free speech and demonize millions of people as racists and extremists simply because they don’t share the same political beliefs as Levin and his gaggle of communist and socialist punks, who are nothing more than a meek regurgitation of the Obama youth that helped Obama win the 2008 election.
It is imperative that legitimate demonstrators who are marching across the nation this week do not allow themselves to be provoked into violence or any kind of backlash. Your weapons are your video cameras which you can use to document the anti-free speech behavior of so-called anarchists as well as any violent provocateurs or undercover cops intent on staging violence.
