Anti-Government Combat Units Go Live
The Oath Keepers bill themselves as being a non-partisan group made up of current and former military, police, and first responders, as part of a plan to “defend the Constitution.” Alarmingly, these reactionaries have been arming themselves to the teeth and vow to defend the country from, you guessed it, the United States government.
Recently, they announced the creation of Civilization Preservation units, structured much like U.S. Special Forces. Each unit is made up of a 12-person team, includingmedics, operations leaders, a commander, as well as combat engineers and experts.
With enough of these teams, the Oath Keepers would work with other veteran organizations across the American landscape as a de-facto fighting force. In other words, they’re ready to take on the government… if it comes to that.
In their post announcing the engagement of these new units, the militia says it will be “most dangerous as a force-multiplier by helping an entire community to fight.” The Oath Keepers also claim they will help communities with disaster relief efforts, maintaining food reserves, and providing medical care, but their primary goal doesn’t seem overly friendly.
“with the formation of these units, it seems, Rhodes and his 30,000-plus Oath Keepers have dumped the theoretical in favor of practical preparation for some post-apocalyptic world when the fabric of American civilization begins to fray.”
