Oath Keepers and Stewart Rhodes not respected very much at Bundy Ranch

Whenever there is major national publicity, Stewart Rhodes and his non-profit Oath Keepers are there to give speeches, fly flags, and ask for donations.

The real hero's are usually the one's you never hear about.

UPDATE: Since I'm getting downvotes for posting reliable intel I thought I would share what this Colonel who was there has to say. Make sure you read the comments from people who were there too. Let the hero-worship downvotes commence...

Yes we have seen

Yes we have seen many "bad" officers out there. I will not disagree with you there. There was an incident here in Pierce County, WA about 2 years ago or so, when a responding city officer was stopped by sheriff's deputies while using excessive force and they condemned him rightly and publicly. It barely made the news and was more of a footnote on the news website.

While I do agree that we have seen a rather large amount of officers and departments doing bad things lately, I won't agree that all officers and departments are willing to participate in or cover for bad or illegal behavior. That would be placing all LEO's in one group titled "bad", and having met and spoke with some really great officers, I just can't agree with that.

If they are not all 'bad,'

If they are not all 'bad,' then the 'good' officers are doing a piss-poor job of taking the 'bad' officers to task, and raising public awareness of 'bad' officers not caught by their own stupidity.

How do you know..

they are doing a piss-poor job of taking "bad" officers to task? Because they don't proclaim it on every comment board in their official capacity? Is every LEO or department to individually release a statement on every incident that happens, regardless of the jurisdiction the incident happens in?

Also, how do you propose they raise public awareness that will satisfy everyone? Some people will not believe any statement given anyways. If you do have a public awareness idea, have you shared that idea with local departments and Sheriff's offices? Have you spoken with the Sheriff and found out his positions on making public local activity?

BTW, there is an organization that is trying to do that exact same thing. The Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association. Here is their mission statement page.

And here is another organization (civilian) that posts information with names.

And there are more out there like them.

Maybe you should know who you are accusing before you accuse

If that is Mark in Michigan doing the show I will believe him over Stewart any day!

I don't know those guys talking but I know Stewart very well. This is his M.O..

Yes, SPLC has a hard on for him, so what. How do you know he is not controlled opposition, because he gives great speeches?

I AM an Oath Keeper, have serious doubts about Rhodes and so do a lot of others.

Don't call me a failure until you have walked miles in my moccasin's.

What has his group done?

Really? What has Mark in Michigan done? I haven't heard Sheriff Richard Mack mention him before. Do you have a reason to disparage the Oathkeepers, other than to insinuate they could be "Controlled". I didn't see him there since the standoff started. When did he arrive and what is he or his Militia doing? How many boots on the ground does he have? Is he putting his people in the so-called "Blind spots"? Or is he, like you, just running off at the mouth.

You're the one running off at the mouth

Those guys on the show were there. Military men who basically called Stewart a joke. Bro, be mad at someone else, not me for reporting the facts!

And didn't Sheriff Mack say to put women and children up front?

Did you listen to the interview yet? ALL OF IT????

Downvoter, care to explain why, especially when you did not even

listen to the show. Those were ex-military who were on the ground!

Or are you just in to hero worship?

The Long Knives Are Out

...and they are busy at their work.
Curious...
Has "full report" been posted?
I didn't see one.
But I did comment on THIS:
http://www.dailypaul.com/318226/notice-constitutional-militi...

I got downvoted by "someone" who (it's quite obvious) hadn't even taken the time to read ANY of my posted comment.

The Long-Knives are out about....
