Because I know it pisses them off.
"How Many Oath Keepers Are Prepared To Commit Violence?"
This is a very good question.
I don't think that the individual who posted this gem on Youtube and I are looking at the question from the same angle, but it is interesting to contemplate.
Forget the multitude of self proclaimed patriots who have no sense of operational security and don't recognize the fact that they do irreparable harm to their future standing in the new world order they believe is closing in around them.
By giving the enemy they're just sure is going to materialize a video record of who they are and what they said, they aren't going to be of much use in the glorious fight for freedom they envisage themselves waging.
Think about the ones smart enough not to identify themselves and publicly subscribe to this dementia that Stewie started.
This is what he thinks:
"None of those groups screen their many members, and because they don't screen, it is allot tougher to hold them responsible for something one of their many, many members does."
This statement was copied and pasted from here:
The first impression is to laugh at the sheer hubris that must exist between those two little ears that would allow for this ridiculous legal argument to ever be conceived.
The realization that he actually believes this crap and is voicing his preparedness to deal with the fallout from the Peter Pan fantasy world that he's constructed for his band of runaway boys makes the laughter stick in the throat.
The reasoning is that like large national organizations, such as the NRA and GOA(National Rifle Association and Gun Owners of America)that also have no screening process for membership, the Oath Keepers organization will be protected in the event that one of their members moves beyond rhetoric and chest thumping, and anything that happens doesn't reflect on the leadership. Nor do they bear any responsibility, because, golly gee willikers, we're just so large a grassroots movement of real americans that there's no way to associate an act of violence with our organization if it should happen.
I submit for reasoning that the NRA and the GOA didn't invent firearms and they don't goad gun owners into shooting people.
I submit that Stewie is goading people, He is instigating and inciting them to levels of action they may otherwise never have arrived at,and if an Oath Keeper takes it upon themselves to move to the next level and walk the walk, then Stewart Rhodes,you are most definitely responsible.
It won't be the first volley in the new revolution you seem so anxious for, it will be a simple act of violence that will hurt real people and it will be the end of your organization.
I see a video when I view the diary.
