Maxine Waters Fears "Armed Protests" As Oath Keepers Descend On Los Angeles

California Democrat Maxine Waters warned supporters on Wednesday of possible "armed protests" by the Oath Keepers organization, which she described as "an anti-government militia" that has conducted armed protests across the country.

The group, founded by Yale Law graduate Stuart Rhodes, bills itself as an association of non-partisan current and former military officers, cops and first responders and notably provided disaster relief to Texas, Louisiana and Puerto Rican hurricane victims. They also have a policy to physically remove any white supremacists from their rallies - but they do like their guns. 

On Tuesday, the group issued a "call to action" against Waters, urging members to prepare for as many as several weeks of protests in the Los Angeles area.

Waters, 79, warned her supporters against being "baited" into confrontations or counter-demonstrations with the group, which she said has a track record of "violent and provocative behavior." She also urged her protesters not to come out on the same date and time as the Oath Keepers planned protests.

"I am requesting those individuals and groups planning a counter-protest to not be baited into confronting the Oath Keepers with any demonstrations in opposition ... Such an occurrence would only exacerbate tensions and increase the potential for conflict."

"The Oath Keepers would like nothing more than to inflame racial tensions and create an explosive conflict in our community," Waters said. "The group is known to protest in military-style clothing while carrying various assault weapons."

Waters ignited tensions last month when she called for supporters to physically confront Trump administration officials when she said: "If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere."

The California Democrat walked back her call to action, telling reporters in June "I believe in peaceful, very peaceful protests ... I have not called for the harm of anybody. This president has lied again when he's saying that I've called for harm."

Waters noted in her statement that the Los Angeles Police Department would be on site Thursday "to ensure safety and security." 

"This is the launch of an ongoing protest that may go on for several weeks. Other patriotic groups are welcome to join us," the group said in a statement. "This is both a protest against Maxine Waters’ incitement of terrorism, and a stand for ICE and the Border Patrol, as they enforce the perfectly constitutional immigration and naturalization laws of this nation."

I have been notified that the Oath Keepers, an antigovernment militia that has staged armed protests in cities across the country, is planning to protest my district office in Los Angeles tomorrow afternoon.

Antigovernment militia?

Just another lie to her constituents.  

Oathkeepers swear an oath to defend the United States Constitution, the basis for our Republic and our government. 

Aren't they all current or former government workers?

They are about as pro-government as one can get.

And regarding militia...

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Folks, believe me when I say I'd like to believe in the oath keepers

But history & common sense tells us that most- & perhaps all- organized groups are either fraudulent or subverted

Let's assume oath keepers started & progressed honestly

Do any of you really believe that by this point it's not flush to the gills with spooks?

Support them if you dare, but my guess is it puts you on the FEMA camp list; & to little avail...

Any group that scares off average, normal family folks should be suspect.....

Maxi is just covering her ass.

Behinds the scenes, "associates" of hers are planning a full confrontation with her silent blessing and support.

Antifa, helpful hint...don't pick on a guy twice your size...and from what I've seen of your physical stature and fighting ability, I'd suggest you target women; the smaller the better the odds of you not getting your ass kicked or shot off...

Is it just me or does Maxine look like she could fit that whole mic in her mouth?

As for Oathkeepers, idk. Good idea, but not really sure why these groups seem to be filled with Iraq/Afghanistan vets. I mean, do they not see the heart stopping irony of keeping an oath to protect the very document that their "veteran or war vet" status violated?  No war was declared. And for Army vets, the CON doesn't even allow for a standing army to begin with.

I know the guys got a fucking raw deal in the sandbox, but I'll be dammed if people aren't still signing up in droves.  When do they simply become another government employee?  Or are they always going to be "fighting for my freedom?" If so, please stop. The harder you fight, the more freedom evaporates it seems.  About as effective as fucking for virginity.

She needs to shut her pie whole, quickly! The progressives (communists) are going to be in a world of hurt if they don't stand down!

I know for a fact, Patriots and many of them are ready to mobilize! Guaranteed. I am one of them! I have never been a cop, fireman or any of that .gov shit (military excluded), and I am one of the millions who stand ready to Defend The Constitution! I am an Oathkeeper, it is not that exclusive!

Sedition is her specialty, she has no abilities beyond running her big fat mouth!

Mittens, you know what sucks about libtards like you? You don’t respect firearms. People who respect firearms don’t fear them, and they understand that this respect also means using firearms in a proper manner, primarily hunting and self-defense, which, historically, often includes watering the Tree of Liberty.

If Mad Max hadn’t called on the mob to go after Americans, she’d have nothing to fear. Don’t start none, won’t be none.

Ever since the post Bundy Ranch Oath keepers debriefing video with Stewart Rhodes looking and sounding useless, I've Said the OathKeepers are the right message with the wrong messenger.

Here's the vid.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HkSAewoESg

Notice how the Oathkeepers ranks are filled NOT with former High ranking military officers. No generals, colonels, nor admirals will you find giving speeches at Oathkeeper rallies. For some reason the best of the best steer clear of them.

There are some good folks in there, but there is a darth of leadership to inspire.

Nice analogy, Mr p.

But the the real problem is the people failing to understand the concept of legal fiction.

the UNITED STATES of AMERICA.

the FEDERAL REPUBLIC of GERMANY.

Take (almost) any other "nation". Look at their CONSTITUTIONS.

How hard is it to understand the mechanism of a trust? Or usufruct? Or everything else that is enabled only by the legal state of perpetual war...

Yes, but we all know that the ones signing up are desperate young kids who don't know much about the world.  They are assuming they are both doing the right, patriotic thing, and will get a bunch of benefits useful after they get out -- GI Bill, VA Home Loans, career training, or early retirement if they make it 20+.  Sounds like a good deal when you have no job, no prospects, and no money. 

Here you go, Bud....sign right here.  You will be in good shape in no time.

The people know that what flows from that old lady's mouth is nothing but lies and deceptions.

I do love how she had to walk back that terrorist talk she was spouting the last time she was creating domestic terrorism.

These libtards are not going to be happy when they figure out that they're doing nothing but alienating themselves from their voter base. It won't be pretty when the elections get here....

I'd like people to take the time to watch this clip of an obvious infiltration agent discrediting people involved in Oregon before Finicum was murdered.  Before this he was shooting Korans in the Arizona desert, magically evading the feds while threatening politicians on the east coast and driving to their locations, armed protests against Muslims, and this happening while their was a false flag freeway shooter in the area. 

I spotted him way before this and posted about him then low and behold he shows up in Oregon.  He made it back from Oregon without being arrested and turned himself in.  He is not in prison.  How did this fucker get in there?  Dont let this happen again.
