WASHINGTON, Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire / -- Oath Keepers, a national association of active duty and retired military, police, and first responders, has placed a large back-lit sign on the subway platform in the Washington Metro Farragut West Station, close to the White House, group founder Stewart Rhodes announced today.
The sign reads "Snowden Honored His Oath. Honor Yours! Stop Big Brother!" and is done in the style of the theater scene from George Orwell's 1984, featuring President Obama as 'Big Brother." "The sign makes it clear that by exposing the NSA spying on Americans, Snowden honored his oath, and White House employees should follow his example," Rhodes said.
Last month the group placed three similar signs at the Washington Metro Pentagon Station. One of those signs featured Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, as 'Big Brother,'" but now "the graphic has been upgraded to feature Obama as Big Brother since he remains unrepentant even after Snowden's embarrassing exposure of a snooping program the Administration denied ever existed," Rhodes said.
Additional signs will be revealed at other DC area stations in September. "This is part of a broader effort to place billboards at strategic locations throughout the United States," Rhodes added, citing current locations outside of military bases at Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Base, Fort Benning, Fort Hood, Fort Stewart, and Hunter Army Airfield.
About Oath Keepers
Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently serving military, veterans, peace officers, and firefighters who will fulfill the oath we swore to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God.
Our oath is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and we will not obey unconstitutional orders, such as orders to disarm the American people, to conduct warrantless searches against them, or to detain Americans as "unlawful combatants" under the laws of war, which denies them their right to jury trial.
