Armed conspiracy group will defend Republicans at Minneapolis Trump rally

Republicans will be escorted to and from their cars. That duty will fall to Oath Keepers, a “patriot” group whose members fancy themselves as “guardians of the republic.” Or as the Southern Poverty Law Center calls them, “one of the largest radical anti-government groups in the U.S. today.”

They are not the kind of people you want entering your city. Especially since they tend to be heavily armed.

The group was launched in 2009 after—not coincidentally—we elected a black president. Its beliefs roughly mirrored the conspiracy theories of the day: that the black guy was preparing to invoke martial law. That he would take away your guns. That he would relegate patriots to detention camps.

The group has shown up heavily armed at the Ferguson, Missouri protests and Cliven Bundy’s Nevada standoff with the federal government. So bringing them to Minneapolis is a bit like dumping lighter fluid on a national forest.

1. Minnesota is a CONCEAL-CARRY state with permit , NOT open carry...

If these assholes show up with their AR-15s clearly visible and other arms, they will be breaking State Gun laws.

2. Minnesota is a carry state

Permits are required but do not specify open or concealed. Open carry is legal for permit holders.

8. The should be deployed

as an heavily armed insurgency threatens to invade
a major city in our country.

They need to be on the ground and all the airports shut down
so the Mass Murderer Trump cannot land and spread his
crimes against humanity any further.

9. Why are people so anxious

To put the military in the streets? The left used to consider that a bad thing.

My opinion of MPD is not very high but I think keeping control of any buffoons that show up is within their capacity.

5. No! He refuses.

AEG of the Target Center said they would cover it. AEG is a radical RW trumpster organization. Mayor Frey said the City of Minneapolis will not cover the fees.
