Florida – -(AmmoLand.com)- Oath Keepers, police and military veterans, bikers, three percenters, and other capable patriots, we need your help to protect Trump Supporters at the upcoming Trump Campaign Rally in Sunrise, Florida (just North of Miami) on November 26, 2019.
To volunteer, email us at: [email protected] See below for details on what to submit with your application. You DO NOT have to be an Oath Keepers member to volunteer! Nor do you have to be prior service police or military. You just need to be physically capable and cool-headed. See below. If you can’t make it yourself, please donate to support those who can make it in person, to be boots on the ground. Our security volunteers need your support to do what they do. Donations cover gas money, rooms, food, and essential equipment for our men. Thank you!

1 Panther Pkwy
Sunrise, FL 33323
NOTE: Even if you do intend to attend the rally, you are still welcome to join in on our volunteer security operation afterward. Please still send in an email and go through the vetting process. But let us know you will be attending the rally. After the rally gets out is the critical time, and you can do a tremendous amount of good by jumping in once you exit the venue.
HOW TO VOLUNTEER:
Please email us at: [email protected]
Put “Sunrise Security Volunteer” in the subject line. Please provide a photo-copy of your driver’s license. Your home and cell phone number (needed to run the background check) A copy of your CCW if you have one (if you don’t, its OK). A brief summary of your relevant training and experience, whether formal or informal. If you are prior service military, police, Fire, EMS, etc please detail your MOS/formal training and experience.
NOTE: You do NOT have to be prior-service to volunteer. If you are not prior-service, you can still volunteer if you are physically capable of protecting others. For example, in the past we have teamed up with awesome bikers from Bikers for Trump, Sons of Liberty Riders, and other bike clubs and associations. We have also teamed up with three percenters groups, many of whom are not prior service, but who were very capable. Oath Keepers will provide the highly trained and experienced police and military leadership for an effective combined-force element.
If you are the leader of a motorcycle club, riders club, or associations, or a leader of a three percenters or other patriot groups, please put “volunteer LEADER” in the subject line. Once we have vetted you and your group, we will trust you to vet your own men. We did that in Rio-Rancho, NM, where we worked with Sons of Liberty Riders, and then Again in Lexington, KY where we teamed up with Kentucky IIIPercent (which sent us 23 volunteers!), with excellent results. When dealing with squared away groups, we trust their leaders to vet and lead their own teams, under our overall supervision. We have done that many times, from downtown Berkeley, in April, 2017 on, and it works out very well.
Oath Keepers veterans and bikers from Sons of Liberty Riders, NM chapter, teamed up successfully in Rio-Rancho, NM to keep people safe.
WHY WE DO THIS:
This will be the eight Trump rally where Oath Keepers has provided volunteer security for rally attendees. As always, we are confident that the interior of the venue itself in Sunrise, FL will be safe (the Secret Service will see to that), but we have serious concerns for the safety of attendees as they walk from their vehicles to the venue, and then especially as they walk back to their vehicles in the dark afterward. There have been numerous examples of Trump supporters being attacked by violent leftists under those circumstances, right up to recent Trump rallies, such as in Minneapolis, MN and Dallas, TX – yes, we had volunteer security teams on the ground at both of those rallies, and we successfully escorted many rally attendees and kept them safe, but we didn’t have enough men to cover all areas, and some Trump supporters were assaulted outside of our presence – including an Iraq veteran in Dallas who was hit from behind with a hard object and knocked unconscious as he walked alone back to his vehicle, which he had parked over a mile from the venue.
Leftists have a right to protest, but they don’t have a right to shut down the free speech and assembly of other people by assaulting them because they don’t like their politics. And yet that is the obvious, well-established pattern of behavior at nearly every Trump event, especially in major cities. We have a duty to protect our fellow Americans against such terrorism (and that’s exactly what it is), and we will. No American, of whatever political party, should have to worry about being violently assaulted as they attend a public political rally by thugs intent on suppressing their free speech and assembly.
Don’t take it for granted that this can’t or won’t also happen in Sunrise. Unfortunately, it can happen anywhere. Which is why we will continue to step up and provide security escorts, and why we need you to step up and help.
All those we escorted at past rallies were kept 100% safe, but we need more volunteers at future rallies so we can have more effective coverage. As in the past, this will be in an independent volunteer security operation, on the exterior of the venue, and is not officially associated with the Trump campaign. We do this because we are honor-bound to keep people safe, so they can exercise their right to free speech and assembly.
Please help. If you can, please volunteer, and if you can’t volunteer, please donate to support those who can.
Thank you for your support! We can’t do it without you!
For. the Republic,
Founder of Oath Keepers
PS – When it comes to volunteers, our only bright line exclusions mirror our limits on who can be a member of Oath Keepers. We cannot use convicted felons, those who have been dishonorably discharged, anyone who advocates the overthrow of the U.S. government, or people who are members of racially orientated groups, or who otherwise discriminate along racial lines. That means no white nationalists or other “ethno-nationalists” or “identitarians” (of whatever race). Such groups and people almost always hold the U.S. Constitution in utter contempt and desire to scrap it just as much as do the radical leftists of Antifa, and are therefore antithetical to our mission. Racists are collectivists (judging people in groups instead of as individuals – again, just like the radical left). We have no common cause with them and do not want them involved in anything we do.
That SHOULD go without saying, but because of the ongoing attempts of white nationalists to worm their way into patriot/conservative/MAGA groups, we need to make our position clear. It is not up for negotiation.
NOTE: If you are reading this, and consider yourself a “white identitarian” in “defensive” reaction to the racist identity politics of the left, we urge you to reconsider. Two wrongs don’t make a right. Identifying along racial lines will fragment the right, which contains millions of non-white patriots, mixed-race patriots, and patriots related to non-whites. Adopting the same racist identity politics as the left only plays right into the hands of the radical Marxists and their globalist puppet masters, by giving credence to their smear that patriots are racist. Your embracing identity politics only helps their intentional divide-and-conquer of the American people along racial lines and demonization of Western Civilization.
In addition, to understand the fallacy of the assertion that race > culture> ideology, you only need to consider the millions of white Marxists on college campuses all over this nation and in major American cities, such as San Fransisco or Portland. If race is most important, why are all those white Americans self-identified, proud “progressives” (Marxists)? Clearly it’s because ideology trumps all else, when brainwashed into them by their teachers from grade-school on, but especially in college. The same can be seen in Sweden, with white Swedes likewise indoctrinated with leftist ideology that is rooted in Marxist theory. Their “whiteness” didn’t prevent it. Their skin color, culture, and history didn’t matter. The ideology did. The ideology trumped all.
Like many other patriots, I wouldn’t want a million leftist Swedes to immigrate here either, just like I don’t want millions of other foreigners who will not assimilate and won’t adopt our creed of individual liberty and limited government under the Constitution. The average Swede is just as likely, or perhaps even more likely, to vote not just left, but far left. Ideology and culture matter above all. And when it comes to what is being done in our nation, it is the Marxist ideology that is clearly being used to poison American minds.
Identity politics, along with mass-immigration from the third world, IS a core strategy the globalists/Marxists have seized on to further their cause, but it’s a smokescreen. What really matters to them most is ideology. Consider how they treat conservative or libertarian blacks or Hispanics. They are condemned as “race-traitors” and demonized/attacked with far more severity than white conservatives or libertarians. For the left, race is NOT the dominant factor, despite how much they use it. Ideology is the real dominant factor for them, with culture a close second, and race actually dead last. It needs to be likewise for you, or you will only fragment your own ideological allies on the right and will aid our enemies in destroying this nation.
