Active National Guardsman Supports Protesters … In His Uniform

First of Many Active Service Members to Support Protesters

Everyone knows that retired members from every branch of the military support the protesters.

Yesterday, the first report surfaced of an active service man supporting the protestersin uniform:

An active-duty black National Guardsmen in uniform showed up in Liberty Plaza less than two days after Oakland police brutalizeda U.S. marine Iraq war veteran in the crackdown on Occupy Oakland. He allowed people to take his photo and quite a few people made it a point to personally thank him and shake his hand.

***

“I support this movement 100%,” he told me. He would have come down before today if he hadn’t been busy with National Guard training.

***

A thinking soldier, a soldier with a conscience, is the 1%’s worst nightmare. If the rank and file of the U.S. military become aware of the fact that they too are the 99%, they won’t have enough cops in the country to stop us

I predict that the National Guardsman will be the first of many active service members to to support the protests.

    Methinks our troops and National Guard are PURPOSELY in other lands, to stop them from protecting US against our government? Ever think about that?

      It worked for the Romans.
      Except for when people sacked Rome.

    I hope large numbers of our military follow suit.

    OK George Washington, check the following video (and publish it):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=xkM7cdMgcEc

    Definitively the obese guy being interviewed (most likely an infiltrated DHS/CIA/FBI agent or a private contractor hired by the government) is just pretending to be a staunch protector of the Second Amendment while safeguarding the rights those who want to exert their freedom of speech at Occupy Phoenix.

    The producers of this clip are so proud of the good intentions displayed by the pseudo-militia group (while the cops appearing in this video are just laughing at them). In fact, by appealing to tons of bullshit about the Constitution and other patriotic crap, any skilled sophist can easily make some money in this country.

    In modern warfare -specifically non conventional urban warfare- this guy will be eliminated in a couple of seconds: first of all, he is surely out of shape (this slob wouldn’t be able to run more than one block before suffering a heart attack or a stroke), his AR-15 is obsolete and no match against the weaponry used by law enforcement agents; besides that, the Federal government has already taken the necessary precautions for a scenario like domestic insurrection – Google NSPD51.

    In conclusion:
    Gun manufacturers in the United States are profiting from people’s stupidity and ignorance. Americans are just a bunch of stupid animals easy to manipulate and subdue.

    Peaceful Revolution = Controlled Opposition

      Peaceful revolution must be attempted before a shooting revolution. While I agree peaceful protest, resistance and revolution is long overdue, at least it is finally happening. The shooting war is next, if the predators-that-be and predator-class do not back down and begin enforcing fraud and treason laws on corporations and government employees.

    You know that part of the oath “to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC”? Well, it’s about god damned time!! Now they can start saying they’re fighting for our freedom.

    This is great news! Just one thing. Why was it necessary to identify this great American’s race? He is an AMERICAN, full stop!

    • Joe Shmo

      I noticed that too. Also though the article was somewhat poorly written. Judging by the author’s name he appears to be of Vietnamese extraction. Could have something to do with it. Tough time with the English thing maybe?

      Can this article even be verified as accurate?

      The only beneficial thing about mentioning his race is that, like Shamar Thomas, it goes to show that this isn’t a white thing, or a black thing, etc., it is an American thing.
