|Occupy The Fed Now|
On Thursday, Constitutional watchdog Oath Keepers announced their plan to ‘occupy’ 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.”
Oath Keepers intends on protecting and defending the free speech of all participants no matter what their message is. However, Oath Keepers is “planning to ‘Occupy The Fed Now!’ and publicize this to remind the Occupy Wall Street people that the Fed is the source problem, without which the Wall Street criminals would be set back a hundred years.”
Steward Rhodes told Activist Post, “We are not “joining” the Occupy Wall Street protests (or spin offs). What we are doing is going out there to teach the participants about the real threat, the Federal Reserve (and give them a healthy dose of truth about many other things). It is outreach and education, not direct participation in the protests.”
Oath Keepers started an official project they’ve named “Occupy The Fed Now!”.
