Internet Hilariously Skewers Militia Leader's 'Daddy Swore An Oath' Video

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/daddy-swore-an-oath-jon-ritzheimer

Oh, so much win in one place!

Another day, another meme mocking the self-styled militiamen occupying a wildlife refuge in Oregon.

Jon Ritzheimer, the notorious anti-Muslim activist and one ringleader of the ongoing protest, posted a video Dec. 31 which he addressed to his children. Sitting behind the wheel of a car, Ritzheimer tearfully explained he couldn’t be home for the holidays because “your daddy swore an oath.”

“He swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, against all enemies foreign and domestic,” Ritzheimer says in the video, while thrusting a pocket copy of the Constitution at the camera from the front seat of an apparently parked car.



After John Darnielle, frontman of The Mountain Goats and all-around good internet presence, posted a parody of the video, #DaddySworeAnOath was born.


Dads across the internet answered Darnielle’s challenge with videos of their own.
