‘Oath Keeper’ Wants John McCain ‘Hung By the Neck Until Dead’

21st Century Wire says…

The organization known as Oath Keepers claims to be a lawful and “Constitutional” outfit, but it seems that its founder appears to hold a more fascist view of the law…

Stewart Rhodes, head of Oath Keepers, has been caught on tape at a recent “liberty event” spouting out his ideas about justice which may not instill much in the way of confidence regarding his ability as an honest broker of due process in America.

Rhodes (image above) called Arizona Senator John McCain a ‘traitor to the Constitution’, and sketched out the following scenario:

“He would deny you the right for trial to jury, but we will give him a trial for jury, and then after we convict him, he should be hung by the neck until dead.”

The charge of “treason” has become a throw-away term used by certain personalities to fire-up crowds and generate media attention, but most people who invoke “treason” rarely define the specifics of the charges.

Granted, McCain’s is anything but popular these days, and his warmongering antics have done his reputation no favors by stirring up geopolitical unrest in two hot spots recently – in Syria and the Ukraine.

In 2013, 21WIRE publicly declared that McCain was ‘unfit for public office’.

No doubt, this sensational comment by Rhodes should attract some new members to his organization, but in the end it’s just another indicator that many who considered as leaders in the “liberty movement” may be nothing more than petty dictators themselves…

At a Tempe event, the founder of the Oath Keepers organization called Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., a traitor to the Constitution who should be tried, convicted and executed by hanging.

The founder of the pro-Constitution organization Oath Keepers last week said U.S. Sen. John McCain should be tried for treason, convicted and “hung by the neck until dead.”

Stewart Rhodes was recorded making the remarks about McCain, R-Ariz., in a video released by the liberal People For the American Way’s Right Wing Watch project. Rhodes was speaking at the Arizona Liberty Caucus’ May 5 “Liberty On Tap” event at the Thirsty Lion Gastropub & Grill at Tempe Marketplace.

Arizona Senate President Andy Biggs, R-Gilbert, was the featured speaker at the event, invited to discuss the “dangers of an Article V Constitutional Convention.” Former Graham County Sheriff Richard Mack, a Second Amendment activist, also spoke.

In the video, Rhodes calls McCain a traitor to the Constitution.

“He would deny you the right for trial to jury, but we will give him a trial for jury, and then after we convict him, he should be hung by the neck until dead,” Rhodes said.

Brian Rogers, a McCain spokesman, said McCain had no comment.

The Oath Keepers group has been described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an “anti-government ‘Patriot’ group” and an “organization that encourages police officers and soldiers to disobey orders that may be unconstitutional.” However, a member of the group in Arizona described it to as pro-Constitution and anti-government-corruption, not “anti-government.”

The group’s website describes it as “a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to ‘defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.'”…
