    I check in on them now and then but they self-censor that site pretty heavily.  So if they are losing it be sure to document the crazy.

    They walk a fine line between wooing law enforcement and pandering to the cop killing Sovereign Citizens.  The founder is a former high ranking Paultard, and now we know that would mean he's probably worked very closely with white supremacists.

    •  I only read one summary (7+ / 0-)

      It was near the top of the list from my Google machine search of the author's name, found here. An excerpt where I omit repetitive blather:

      Oath Keepers has an interest in this sort of study, because such analytics are continuously being inserted into the mental states of our public servants, especially those who are to be used to suppress dissent within the population at large. You know, the gals and guys with the badges and the guns – and those with the uniforms of the U.S. military.

      ...blah, blah, blah...

      This sort of study is the fertile psychological ground in which the seeds of governmental tyranny are sprouted and nurtured, fertilized and watered and incubated by the heated force of applied government. It is conceived in the misguided and misperceiving minds of statists (people who would grant all authority for the management of individual lifestyles of citizens to government offices and agencies). It gets written up into profiling theses, such as the below, using numbers and statistics reflecting the group behavior – while inadvertently overlooking any semblance of personal responsibility on the part of the individual.

      ...blah, blah, blah...

      It is morally irresponsible and repugnant, but it is the only “system” available to any modern government which seeks to contain, limit, control the beliefs, perceptions, habits, and behavior of its citizenry.  It is based on “studies” and “polls” drawn from the group, and as such it is biased against the “individual citizen”.
      In today’s SWAT-infested militarized combat-style “law enforcement” agencies it often leads to a predisposed violation of Constitutional rights of citizens,

      ...blah, blah, blah...

      Yeah, those "facts" get in their way, I see.
