Armed A-hole Militia Group Oath Keepers to Protest at Maxine Waters’ LA HQ (WATCH)

*Uh oh. Congresswoman Maxine Waters has got a whole new bunch of BS to deal with in the wake of her comments about confronting Trump administration officials.

An armed paramilitary group known as the Oath Keepers is planning a protest today (07-19-18) outside Waters’ Los Angeles offices. If that wasn’t imposing enough, the group is signaling that they may hang around for weeks. They’re taking action against her because they say she’s incited “far-left terrorist violence and threats of violence.”

They members refer to themselves as a patriotic organization, who travel the country heavily armed to – in their words – enforce the constitution.

The Southern Poverty Law Center calls them “one of the largest anti-government groups in the U.S. based on conspiracy theories.”

Waters, who made comments for people to confront officials with the Trump administration over controversial issues, said she was not calling for anyone to be harmed. But she said groups on the right have made her a target anyways.

Waters issued a statement describing the Oath Keepers as an anti-government militia with a history of violence.

“The Oath Keepers would like nothing more than to inflame racial tensions and create explosive conflict in our community,” it said, in part. “In order to ensure the peace and security of our community, it is best and preferable if no other demonstrations are scheduled.”

Waters went on to urge any of her supporters who plan to hold a counter-protest to not get baited into confrontations.

Cliff Smith, who lives in Waters’ district and works for a union representing 1,000 roofers in Southern California, said he spoke with her Wednesday night. He said Waters told the union to stay away, but he plans to protest, reports ABC7.

Waters also said the LAPD will have officers on site.

  1. Talk about shit research…..Oathkeepers isn’t a Militia group. They aren’t even Alt-Right. And they don’t generally encourage members showing up at protests with AR-15’s, with the notable exception being the Pro-Gun rally in Virginia because that was the point……
    Oathkeepers are ex-cops and veterans who still feel they are beholden to the oath they swore when entering service. They are fairly politically neutral, mostly just pro-constitution. It’s pretty clear form her letter, that Maxine Waters has no idea who they are either. But why would she let something like truth stop her? Then she would miss a chance to smear these people in an attempt to change the narrative so she looks like the victim. After all, perpetual victimization is her business.
    And the photo of the schmucks holding rifles was a nice touch. But I will bet money those are 3%-ers, or some other pseudo militia. I am not a member of Oathkeepers. I heard about them enough that I decided to do a little homework. Something I would encourage everyone to do. Not just take Maxine Waters at face value. She’s a politician. Lying and spinning to gain an advantage are what she does for a living.
    Unless of course you have an aversion to the truth because it conflicts with your cozy world view.
