When you set out to take Vienna...

...take Vienna!

When a man bloviates incessantly about "Not one more inch..." and "...if you try to take our weapons, we will kill you..." and then surrenders his handgun at a routine traffic stop, one would be quite justified in dismissing such men from the ranks of serious Patriots.  This one has been covered, yet returns to relevance for the rest of this post.

When an organization sets out their RoE as has OathKeepers, and they go to Ferguson with good intentions to defend property from looters - yet they stand down when PoPo threatens arrest, one would be quite justified to wonder how deep the yellow runs in the upper echelons of the organization.

I am watching Ferguson not to pontificate on who is right and who is wrong.  From Day One we've been simply analyzing actions and reactions, cause and effect.

Analysis: The rioters, looters, and their Communist provocateurs are more committed than are the OathKeepers who showed up.  That is a simple fact.  Consider that reality when you plan for your Ferguson.

One more time: Never draw a line in the sand that you will not defend.  The moment you fail to defend a line you have drawn, you reveal your weakness, and your bluster and failure taints us all.

It is better to remain quiet and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Here's a piece on OKs in Ferguson.

    K,

    Maybe they got intel saying that a drone strike was headed their way like at Bundy Ranch! :)

    All joking aside, Stewie and his #1 cheerleader, Mikey V; will try and justify why they backed down all while screaming "not one more inch". I would like to think the guys on the ground would have stayed regardless of the threat of arrest, but OK's leadership is weak.

    Very Disappointing!

  2. Just saw this and dated the second.

    As retired police officer and Missouri police academy instructor John Karriman said, we will not, and did not, stop protecting the buildings and people we had promised to protect. We were there the very next night after being told to stop, and we have been there every night since. And we will continue to be there until calm is restored and we are no longer needed. Refer to our attorney's letter to St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar :
