Oath Keepers Should Appreciate Civil DisobedienceSubmitted by Z on Tue, 05/28/2013 - 10:47
I think what Oath Keepers fails to understand, in condemning Adam's march, is that this is not a military operation. "Tactical experience" as far as warmaking is meaningless.
They ask what the point is of marching into the enemy camp to be captured. To ask the question is to answer it.
Adam clearly is not afraid of being arrested. Civil disobedience means accepting the consequences of ones actions. Adam has decided to engage in an activity which should be perfectly lawful but is not. If he is willing to suffer the legal consequences of breaking the DC gun laws then his civil disobedience will draw attention to the injustice of the system.
He puts the power structure in the position of prosecuting an Iraq war veteran for standing up for the very rights the veterans are fighting for. This is an amazing stand that I would think would resonate with our military.
