The Oathkeepers and The Left

The Oathkeepers are a group of US military, law enforcement, and govt. personnel who refuse to obey unlawful orders. The specific list of orders they'll refuse is here.

You'd think something like this declaration would be pretty well universally acknowledged as a good thing:
7. We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext.

But you'd be wrong. Archleftist progressives over at Mother Jones take a page from the racist leftist SPLC's playbook and demonize a group of folks perceived as being on "the right". When did standing up for liberty against the government become so unfashionable? Oh, that's right... Jan 20, 2009.

You'd think that if the left wasn't all about rounding people up into camps, but like the socialists in that Union of Socialist Republics and the National Socialist's Worker's Party, this really irritates them. This vocal minority of Oathkeepers reflects a pretty substantial group of the military.

Robin From Berkeley over at American Thinker discusses the strange hatreds from the left here.

For those who think that uniformed services should simply submit to the dictates of a corrupt civilian govt., I submit The Battle of Athens, which I'm sure will be seen again on this blog.
