With days to go until Election Day, Trump's terrorist allies are openly calling for attacks on polling places and against Democratic voters, publicly vowing to take Trump's enemies "into custody" and "drawing their weapons if needed" at polling places in order to stop Joe Biden from winning.
Oath Keepers militia leader Stewart Rhodes said members of his militia will be at polling locations on Election Day to “protect” Trump voters during an appearance on far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ program.
After making that claim, Rhodes made a number of unhinged statements, including saying Oath Keepers would follow directives from President Donald Trump to take members of the “deep state” into custody and “do what we have to do,” that Trump should invoke the Insurrection Act before the election, that Oath Keepers will “be in range” of Washington D.C., to stop a “Benghazi-style” attack on the White House on election night, and that a war will have to be fought against Democrats on the West Coast who are “bought” by the Chinese government. Rhodes also hyped the possibility of a second civil war where his “battle-hardened” supporters kill the “street soldiers” and “command and control” of “the radical left.” He later claimed the United States is already in a civil war because “you have sitting politicians who are part of the enemy’s ranks.”
Disturbingly, Rhodes telegraphed how he will interpret election results, saying that he would consider a win by Democratic nominee Joe Biden illegitimate and evidence the election had been stolen, presaging how he and his militia might react to that outcome.
Rhodes’ Oath Keepers militia, which is comprised of “former law enforcement officials and military veterans,” is described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as “one of the largest radical antigovernment groups in the U.S. today.” The Los Angeles Times reported Rhodes has indicated that some Oath Keepers “have signed up as poll watchers, while others plan to monitor the election armed and ‘undercover,’ drawing their weapons if needed.”
During an October 27 appearance on The Alex Jones Show, Rhodes said members of his militia are going to “stand up and protect people on Election Day” at the polls because opponents of Trump will be supposedly “coercing and threatening” his supporters as part of an effort by Democrats to steal the election.
Stewart Rhodes is a terrorist group leader, and Oath Keepers are flat-out white supremacist terrorists supporting Trump and his white supremacist regime. These guys are going to shoot up a bunch of polling places at this rate, and get a lot of folks killed.
And frankly, it just may be the start of a new era of violence.
A priority of the Biden administration has to be dealing with these seditious assholes and terrorist before they kill, because it seems pretty clear to me that we've got a terrorist leader gladly shouting to the rooftops that he's going to have his goons kill voters at the polls.
If there is violence at the polls next week, and I believe there is a very chance there will be, you can place the blame at Trump's feet.
Then you can toss his ass out into the street on Tuesday.
Lock them up.
