Oath Keepers Places Pro-Snowden Signs in DC Area, Encouraging More Whistle-blowers

Oath Keepers launches new campaign to place signs and billboards near Washington D.C. area defense and intelligence agencies, praising Edward Snowden for exposing the NSA spying on Americans and urging other government employees to follow Snowden’s example by becoming whistle-blowers.

By Stewart Rhodes

To launch this new campaign, Oath Keepers has placed three back-lit signs on the subway platform in the D.C. Metro Pentagon Station.

The first sign at the Pentagon Station is done in the style of the theater scene from George Orwell’s 1984 and features Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, as “Big Brother” (which we think he was born to play):

That “Big Brother” sign makes it clear that by exposing the NSA spying on Americans, Snowden honored his oath, and other government employees need to honor their oaths by also exposing unconstitutional actions. Here is an actual photo of the sign, posted on YAL’s (Young Americans for Liberty) Facebook page:


Thanks YAL!

The URL on the sign, oathkeepers.org/expose, takes viewers to a special landing page where the government employees can learn more about their obligations to blow the whistle on government violation of the Constitution, and more about exactly what the NSA has been doing and how it fits into the larger picture of the ongoing creation of an uncountable, totalitarian police state in America that is outside the Constitution and a grave threat to the survival of liberty in America. This particular “Stop Big Brother” artwork will also be going on a billboard along a major freeway in Maryland, near the NSA headquarters at Ft. Mead (as close as we can get it). That freeway billboard should be up within the week.

Sign campaign and otherwise. And CSPOA.





It's too busy but it'll work.

I would make the main copy stand out more, It's too low in the visual hierarchy.
If you're just glimpsing all you'll read is Honor Yours! Stop Big Brother! Don't think that's strong enough a statement.

Something that would work on a more phycological level is:

"Stand for freedom or they died for nothing. Honor your oath today."

And put a picture of a full dress marine staring right into your eyes in front of Arlington National Cemetery.

Make it controversial!


Might be ok as a platform sign. WAY too busy for a billboard. Highway billboards need to be as simple as possible. You couldn't digest all that visual info and typography on a highway billboard if you wanted to, even as a passenger and not a driver.

works fine. People will stop

works fine. People will stop to see who the creepy looking people are.

Keep it up Oath Keepers!...

...These are the kind of things that I can get behind definitely!

Very effective!

I'll considering donating to these specific projects for sure!

Just made a donation

to the billboard fund. They have taken the time to do different billboards for specific areas. Let's hope this type of media gets lots of attention.

hells yeah

I will be sure to donate to Oath Keepers again soon

I like Oath Keepers

Hate the signs!

Too busy, needs to read like a billboard not like a graphic designers wet dream!

platform billboard

People waiting on the platform have more time to analyse the content of a busy advert. Simple billboard is to sell a product/mark when you have a one second glimpse.

I disagree

It's still too busy, and what's with the big face in the center, is that some kind of reference to 1984? If so, how many people are going to get it?

Bold dissent might cause folks to look more closely

but I get the complaints of over-busyness. The color tones are catchy and mood setting, but if posted for moving traffic, it might slow the flow, or be missed altogether.

Hopefully, a good portion will look up Oathkeepers to get the rest of the story. Where did they get the age-advanced art of Bernanke for the center mug-shot?

I am an Oath Keeper.

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.

Bump again.

Bump again.

Bump again.

Bump again.

This is the kind of platform

This is the kind of platform we need to beat MSM propaganda. Perhaps we can have a money bomb for Oath Keepers.

Advertise; Mainstream media news reporters come down on the side of the Federal Government saying Snowden is a traitor 34%. The American People come down on the side of Edward Snowden as Hero Whistleblower 55%. Whose side are you on?
