Constitution Watchdog Oath Keepers and The Wayseers Join ‘Occupy’ Protests
Friday, October 7, 2011
On Thursday, Constitutional watchdog Oath Keepers announced their support for the Occupy Wall Street and Occupy the Fed protests:
Oath Keepers sees good reason to stand in the streets with these awakening souls and protect their right to free speech, to peacefully assemble, and to redress their grievances to their government, as the Constitution prescribes for all Americans.
That is one thing. Another facet of our initiative is to use these public gatherings to reach and teach many who now hunger for the truth — we can show them how the Constitution will protect them better than an oversized, bloated Federal behemoth hell-bent on controlling every aspect of each citizen’s life.
Oath Keepers, founded by Army veteran and Yale University law grad Stewart Rhodes, is a non-partisan association primarily made up of active and retired police, military, and other public officials who swore an oath to the U.S. Constitution and reaffirm that they will not “obey unconstitutional (and thus illegal) and immoral orders.”
