Reid Opponent Embraces Patriot Group That Warns Of ‘Giant Concentration Camps’ | TPMDC
I predict a win for Reid, when he should be an easy target in this season. He’s opposed by a wingnut opponent who’s endorsed by the Tea Party Express, the Hard con Club For Growth group, and she might be a scientologist too boot.
Republican nominee challenging Sen. Harry Reid in Nevada, is perhaps no better illustrated than by her embrace of the patriot group Oath Keepers, whose membership of uniformed soldiers and police take an oath to refuse orders they see as unconstitutional — including enforcement of gun laws, violations of states’ sovereignty, and “any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps.”
“We support what the organization stands for,” Angle’s husband, Ted, told TPMDC in a phone interview Monday. “Sharron does.”
Members of Oath Keepers — whose motto is “Not on our watch!” — take a 10-item oath affirming that they will not, for example, force citizens into detention camps or invade a state “that asserts its sovereignty and declares the national government to be in violation of the compact by which that state entered the Union.”
Often seen at gun shows and similar settings, the Oath Keepers were singled out by the Southern Poverty Law Center in its 2009 report (.pdf) on the return of the militia movement since President Obama was elected as “a particularly worrisome example of the Patriot revival.”
