Oath Keepers Places Pro-Snowden Sign at White House Stop on D.C. Metro, Featuring Obama as “Big Brother.”

WhitehousesigninplaceOath Keepers- by Stewart Rhodes

Oath Keepers has placed a large sign featuring President Obama as “Big Brother” at the Washington D.C. Metro stop closest to the White House, praising Edward Snowden for exposing the NSA spying on Americans and urging White House employees to follow Snowden’s example by becoming whistle-blowers.  

Last month Oath Keepers placed a similar sign at the Pentagon Station stop on the Washington Metro subway.  That sign, done in the style of the theater scene from George Orwell’s 1984, 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.  And besides, Obama, as “Commander-in-Chief’ and as the Chief Executive, is clearly the biggest “Big Brother” of them all and is responsible for what the executive branch he leads is doing.

Nonetheless, you can bet there will be cries of “racist!” from the radical left because we dare to criticize their anointed god, despite the fact that we first featured Clapper – about as white a guy as you can imagine – as Big Brother, and despite the fact that Obama isthe President, after-all (exactly who should we criticize if not him, for the policies of his Administration?).


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 by exposing other crimes against the Constitution.   We do  want to make it clear that, as we have stated previously, we are not defending or praising Snowden’s disclosure of U.S. intelligence operations against other countries.  We ARE defending and praising his exposure of unconstitutional U.S. intelligence operations against the American people.  When the Federal Government violates the Supreme Law of the Land and treats the American people like a foreign enemy, exposing that crime is the right thing to do.  And when that government is run by the very criminals who gave the orders to treat Americans like a foreign enemy, the “normal” channels for whistle-blowers are closed and all that is left is to blow the whistle to the real bosses – the American people themselves.  Which is exactly what Snowden did.

And the same goes for the Fast and Furious running of guns to the Mexican drug cartels,or for the truth of what happened at Benghazi, and for exposing the clear and imminent DHS preparation for a domestic war against freedom loving Americans, etc. – when the criminals are in charge of the government, the only recourse is to blow the Whistle to We the People so we can put a stop to it.   Those in government have a duty to expose government crimes against the Constitution.

Additional signs will be revealed at other DC area stations, in September, which will be as close to the CIA, DHS, and other national security/intelligence agencies as we can get them.  They will continue our campaign to get those in the know, inside government, to fulfill their oaths by simply exposing the crimes against the Constitution  that we know are going on.

This is part of a broader effort to place billboards at strategic locations throughout the United States.  We already have billboard outside of military bases at Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Base; Fort Benning, Georgia; Fort Hood, Texas; Fort Stewart, Georgia; and Hunter Army Airfield, Georgia.  You can see all of those billboards, and help us in this effort, by going to http://oathkeepers.org/oath/billboard/

Next up will be billboards at the Marine Corps bases at Camp Lejeune and Camp Pendleton, and at Army bases at Ft. Bragg, NC and Ft. Lewis, WA, as well as outside of the CIA headquarters in VA, and as close to NSA and DHS headquarters as we can get them.

As long as you keep supporting this effort, we will keep putting up billboards till we have them outside of every major military base in America and outside of every major intelligence and national security facility in America.  And along with the billboards, we will be handing out pocket Constitutions and issue pamphlets to active duty on the way into the military bases.  In fact, our chapter at Ft. Hood, Texas has already handed out over 3,000 pocket Constitutions to active duty soldiers there at Ft. Hood.  Way to go, Texas!

It is difficult to imagine a more direct and effective way to change the future course of history in this nation than to directly reach, teach, and inspire our active duty military to honor their oaths, and to encourage more whistle-blowers to expose the ongoing crimes against our Constitution.  That is an effective focus of effort.   We encourage you to help us, including by volunteering to take part in boots-on-the ground outreach efforts to pass out educational materials directly to the troops outside of the main gates of military bases.  Just email us with “Boots on Ground Volunteer” in the headlines, and let us know what state you live in, what base you want to visit and outreach to, and we WILL get you the materials you need to get it done.   Together, we will change history for the better and turn the tide.  Stay tuned for more details on that direct outreach effort.

For the Republic!

Founder and President of Oath Keepers

  1. As oath keepers, Should they maybe stay away from comparing the president to a fiction book? And also should maybe they distance themself a little from snowden?
    As a member(possibly not for much longer) I cant stand when a group im a party to goes and starts looking like douchebags by making satirical statements. This criminal in charge of the executive branch has plenty of wrong doings to focus on. As for snowden, who gives a flying fook? I have more damning proof on my 32g sd card than what this hack of a leaker released. NEXT!

  2. So does this mean that the Oathkeepers are a terrorist group now? Probably.

    I’m surprised they were able to pull it off in D.C. without getting arrested.

    No offense, but I never had much faith in the Oathkeepers. Especially after they did nothing during the Boston incident and they were right there in Boston when the paramilitary violated people’s constitutional rights by declaring martial law on the town. Instead, they just played politics and kept a low profile, rather than finding a way to take advantage of the situation and garner more support from the people. They always seem to take a passive role rather than an active one. But that’s just me.

    1. I have noticed that too NC. Seems like they are more about showing off their firepower than they are about doing something about the problem. Like you NC, that is just me. I would love to see something that the Oathkeepers have done seeing as how they act as though they are a organization. ya know, just wondering about them as it seems that there are a lot of cops that belong to them oathkeepers too. Just a observation of mine – what`s up with cops belonging to the Oathkeepers when it seems hippocritical at best for a cop to belong to a group like that.

      1. Didn’t know about the cop thing and if that is true, that gives me even more reason NOT to put my faith and trust in the Oathkeepers.

        1. Yep NC, I cannot give any names as I have seen a lot of cops that were all proud self professed cops that were members of the Oathkeepers – or so they say anyway – when I was checking out them Oathkeepers. I watch them cops like the plague , but I have seen a lot of cops that belong to them Oathkeepers, or rather more cops that are members than what I think is trustable for how many cops are so called members – if you know what I`m sayin`. I cannot say where I have seen their names but it was mostly just about paying attention and noticing when a cop says he is a cop and a member of the Oathkeepers. I check out a lot of articles NC.

  3. I’m surprised he got one posted near Fort Hood, TX. That place is like a gestapo base with underground military experiments. It’s a great spot for it and if they wanted to find any whistleblowers, that would definitely be one of the likely places, but I’m just surprised the government allowed it to be posted there.
