She says she was warned that the group, the Oath Keepers were planning protests in cities across the country. She describes the Oath Keepers as “an anti-government militia”.
She warned her supporters against being “baited” into counter-demonstrations or confrontations with the organization, which she said has a track record of “violent and provocative behavior.” I think she has it backwards, it’s the left wing nuts, who are violent. We haven’t heard of the Oath Keepers attacking anyone yet, have we?
She urged supporters to avoid protesting on the same date and time as protests planned by the Oath Keepers.
She further added that the Oath Keepers are race baiters, and enjoy creating an explosive conflict in our communities. The group is known to protest in military-style clothing while carrying various assault weapons.
But the truth is that the Oath Keepers bills itself as a non-partisan association of current and former military officers, cops and first responders. The group issued a “call to action” against Waters on Tuesday, telling members to prepare for as many as several weeks of protests in the Los Angeles area. The Oath Keepers are also inviting other patriotic groups to join them.
Waters loves stirring the pot and causing controversy, for example, when she called on her supporters to publicly confront and harass members of the Trump administration in response to the zero-tolerance immigration policy that led to the separation of families at the border.
