I know a Sherriff Deputy; he’s a combat veteran and patriot who has proven that he willing to die to defend the American way of life. He became a Sherriff after the Corps to continue his calling to protect the weak and enforce justice… He is a man that I admire! Yet, when I asked the deputy if he was a III%er he said, “No, I am a Law Enforcement Officer” (L.E.O.) He gave me a look that told me he thought the III% were lawless, hotheads.
He looked shocked when I told him that I was a III%er and listened carefully as I explained the history of the III% in regards to the founding of America and that III%er objectives are too see constitutional governance restored. I told him we hope it is done peacefully but todays III%, like the original III% are ready to stand our ground against tyranny and an out of control federal government. I told him (in a friendly way) that we are the backup plan if the Tea Party fails.
At the end of the conversation he told me that he did not know that much about the III% until now but said: “I guess I AM THE III% TOO”.
ACTION IS REQUIRED BY YOU!
The III% movement needs to reach out to LEO’s at every opportunity, they should be our allies; ultimately I expect them to arrest the corrupt politicians and judges. But, before you talk to them you must be prepared to explain the history of the III%, make sure they understand when we say “We are Coming” that we are not coming for them but those who pervert our laws and seek to divide and destroy America.. Explain that oath breakers and the corrupt are “our common enemy” and at that point if you have done a good job the LEO will count him or herself part of the III%.
I estimate I have already met 10-15% of the sheriff deputies in my county, when I see them I always give them a friendly smile and wave. Especially driving down the road with a “Don’t Tread on Me” sticker on my back window. I only approach them when it is appropriate, not when they are busy. For example; when we are at the fair or festival, I let them know I appreciate them keeping the area safe for my family. Be friendly, even when they are giving you a speeding ticket; it is about building a long term relationships… Ultimately we don’t want them concerned about us as unruly anarchist or that we are going to be a problem in an SHFT situation…
They should understand that if the SHTF and they see us patrolling our neighborhoods (when I say ours, I mean theirs too) with our AR’s that they can feel better about leaving their family behind as they go to restore order and contain the violence to areas with high numbers of democrats. Also they should know that if the Feds come down on them for keeping their oaths they won’t have to face them alone, we’ll have their six.
They should know that when they see us at a protest that we will comply with lawful orders… Recently at the Hamas counter protest in Fort Lauderdale the police had to come over and ask one of the protestors in our crowd to leave or be arrested. The guy was shouting death threats… The rest of us backed away from the guy, let the police do their job and it was clear to the police he was not one of us…
We also need to police ourselves in our groups… When we see people that call themselves the III% and are spewing hate, making death threats or calling for violence we need to correct them or kick them out… It is one thing to educate people another to spew hate.
For example: It is OK to teach about the atrocities and evilness of Islam but not OK to promote killing Muslims… Keep in mind that many Muslims are victims who live in fear themselves, especially their women, if we present the truth and level headed arguments people will get the message and not tolerate Sharia law in America. Truth is the best medicine to prevent Islam.
It is OK to point out the problems in the Black community and speak out against the welfare system that is keeping black people down but we should teach in a compassionate way keeping in mind that since LBJ’s “Great Society” the government has been promoting the victim mentality in black communities as a tool to keep Democrats in power. We cannot tolerate racism: instead the III% need to support efforts to break the dependency cycle, encourage personal responsibility and self-sufficiency, not put them down. That’s the American way.
When it comes to restoring our government: I believe our forefathers wanted the government to be in fear (respect) of “We the People” to help keep the Feds in line and avoid tyranny. That’s one of the main reasons for the second amendment… But they did not tell us to start a revolution at whim. They suffered for years and made every effort to prevent war… To quote the Declaration of Independence, “When a long train of abuses and usurpations”. I am not saying there won’t be a revolution, what I am saying is if you want to start on the first thing you need to make clear is who you plan to shoot? My sister in the National Guard or our Brothers in Law enforcement… NOPE! You’ll have to shoot me first!
LEO’s are “We the People” too. As a matter of fact most are vets who will die to preserve the American dream for their children… However, as Pastor Chuck Baldwin point out in his recent article (An Open Letter to My Friends in Law Enforcement) they are being manipulated by the federal government. The militarization of local LEO’s by the Fed’s and Fed propaganda to Military and LEO’s is designed to put a divide between American People and Law enforcement with the objective of shifting power and control away from we the people and to the Feds…
If our mission is to restore law and order, it will be much easier with LEO’s on our side so IMHO we have to move forward in a way where we do not seem to be a threat to police and it will take a conscious effort to get them on the right side to arrest the oath breakers.
At the million vet march (1MvetMarch) after I was assaulted by oath breaking police and was walking away from the demonstration I saw more police putting on riot gear… I walked right up to them and asked them what the hell they were doing? I passionately but calmly said, “Don’t you realize that you are getting ready to go up against veterans that fought for your freedom? We are not a group of anarchist, if you would like us to do something you come and ask us, POLIGHTLY!” The cops looked ashamed and put their riot gear away…
Since that day a lot of people have told me “Man if I were you, I would have fired off on those police”. Well, such actions will cause us to lose, we are in a battle for hearts and minds still. None of the veterans fired back, we opened the memorials and we had a huge victory that day…. If we would have fired back they would have felt justified and lost the victory.
The original III% did not just go out and start punching and shooting people, they spread their message and got the people onside. They kept the focus on the real enemy before the revolution started. It should be our goal to prevent violence and keep the focus of “We the People” on the real enemy: those who corrupt our laws and seek to divide our nation to gain power. That is not the police or military, they are being unwittingly used…
Having said that, you do have the God given right to defend yourself and our constitution gives us rights too. When they are violated you have the “duty” to make a stand for righteousness sake… We were made to be Courageous; I pray that God give you courage and wisdom on that day.
