Lexington Green Rally Permit Pulled Alternate Site Being Arranged (Oathkeeper)

Lexington Board of Selectmen wave victory flag for marathon attacker

On April 16th the Lexington board of selectmen called an “emergency meeting” to discuss permit suspension for The Muster On The Battle Green. The permit was revoked under the guise of public safety. Video content can be viewed here. (at site)

--

The “emergency meeting” assembled at 6:00PM but turned out to be a smoke and mirror show. The Lexington Patch reported that the permits have been revoked at 3:22PM April 16th. That is 2 hours and 38 minutes before it got voted on.

As the organizer of this rally, I have jumped through hoops to make this rally a success. From the very beginning, I have received large amounts of resistance. Attacks from the uneducated, the religious, and cowards have all flown in my direction VIA hate emails, threats, news publications, and sheep begging me to reconsider the event.

The Town of Lexington first tried to derail the rally by voting on constitutional rights. The town failed and we got the permit. The BoS voted 4-1 to allow the rally. The one tyrant who voted against American freedoms was Hank Manz.

Cancellation of this event was in the making from day one. Lexington did not even cash my checks since this was the plan.

With the town in an uproar over my acquisition of the permit, Detective Lieutenant Michael A. McLean sent this email to all police departments seeking advice on how “deal” with us.

“A Second Amendment Group call Guns Across America Massachusetts is holding a rally on the Battle Green in Lexington Center on April 19th. This rally has raised a lot of attention on both pro and anti gun groups and we expect a decent turn out from both. Although the organizer and his group have stated their supporters will not be carrying that day, we have heard of a couple splinter groups that have stated they will be showing up with firearms. I was hoping someone might be able to help us with a couple of issues. First, is there any law that would prohibit a Class A LTC holder from carrying a loaded large capacity rifle in a public place? Second, there is an exemption under 140 s. 129 C regarding carrying of rifles by non-residents which allows a non resident to carry a rifle or shotgun within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as long as they can carry the rifle or shotgun in the state which they reside. Not sure of the context with the second one. Department is getting a lot of questions from the selectman and other officials. We know the gun group is going to be well versed in what they can do so we want to make sure we are on solid ground before dealing with any of them. Any help would be appreciated.

Not trying to read too much into this, but this does not surprise me.

I support the Oath Keepers, but am cautious about some of the sites who promote them. Had to look a while to avoid some sources of this which are "unacceptable/ not credible".

What do you think?

You should support the Oath Keepers. When the SHTF and it will they are going to be a major force in restoring the constitutional republic. I listened to Stuart Rhodes explain this problem yesterday and my personal feeling is that they are going to have to abandon holding rallies in these libtard states.

Of course the authorities are going to allow the anti gun crowd to gather on the green that day. They don’t need a permit.

The self-styled “Birthplace of American Liberty” (Lexington) has become a gutless Liberal enclave ready to jump on the bandwagon of even the most laughable social programs, while, at the same time, being unwillng to defend the freedoms its early residents won with courage, blood and fire.

Of course I support the OathKeepers, but Alex Jones and some of the other sites that post their comments destroy the message of the OathKeepers.

That is why I seemed a bit cautious.

There should be a _massive_ gathering of historical USAians in Lexington on the day the shot was heard around the world: April 19, 1775.

Perhaps we should stop celebrating July 4th, as an ongoing pretense that the current USA well represents the principles establish on that date in 1776.

Not enough time to organize it this year, will try for next year.

There is no reason that the “organization” of a Tea Party Event would be a problem. I think that is already in the works.

I expect a gathering before the summer is over.
