    Oath Keepers founder slams conservative media hypocrisy

    In a time of crisis, who can the people trust? Their political leadership, or fellow citizens?

    Concerned the answer to that question might be turning into “neither,” Yale-educated ex-soldier and former Ron Paul organizer Stewart Rhodes hatched an idea that’s grown beyond his wildest imagination.

    Now a darling of the conservative media for his military and law enforcement activist group “Oath Keepers,” Rhodes is pursued by fawning tea party organizers and promoted by people like Glenn Beck, Matt Drudge, Rush Limbaugh, Pat Buchanan and even Watergate burglary planner G. Gordon Liddy.

    Though the newfound love from right-leaning pundits is certainly not lost on him, it’s not reciprocated. For as much as they laud Rhodes, push stories about Oath Keepers and link their materials, he just sees “hypocrisy” — and was not ashamed to tear down his recent promoters in an interview with RAW STORY.

    Take, for example, Glenn Beck, who eagerly followed Matt Drudge in promoting Oath Keepers late last year for their pledge to “prevent dictatorship.” Though Oath Keepers is cosponsoring a Beck-organized 9/12 rally in Washington, D.C. later this year, that doesn’t mean Rhodes agrees with or even likes the flamboyant Fox TV star.

    “I’m not sure where he’s at, he kinda jumps around,” Rhodes said of Beck. “He was, early on during the Ron Paul campaign, horrible to Ron Paul. He even suggested that some of his followers were potential domestic terrorists and wanted to use the military against them. So, he seems kind of erratic.”

    Rhodes added: “That’s the problem with people like Michelle Malkin, and apparently Glenn Beck — and Rush Limbaugh is in the same camp — during the Bush administration, you didn’t hear a peep out of them about, oh, the president is overstepping constitutional boundaries, he’s endangering the country, this stuff is unconstitutional. I didn’t hear anything like that from those people.”

    “In fact, [it was] quite the opposite,” he said. “Michelle Malkin was running around arguing why the internment of Japanese Americans was proper and necessary, [like] they were really dangerous people. You know, [she was] laying the groundwork, overtly, for interning Arab Americans.”

    Hey Alexander, you are very good at dispersion.

    I heard about this group. Apparently they’re waiting for the Dems to lose a major election or two so they can step in and be what the tea party is for the rethugs…and he’s apparently targeting progressives. Looks like a very transparent attempt by the corporatists to try and nullify progressives, the one group opposed to corporatism and fascism.
