Plea Deals Are Tearing the Oaf Creepers Apart

For a time, Edward Wilson was the model Oath Keeper. Like many members of the far-right, paramilitary organization, he was a military veteran, and he issued statements on behalf of the group.

Then, in 2015, Wilson started doing the Oath Keepers’ information technology work. The militia’s behind-the-scenes workings permanently soured him on the group.

“I was a lifetime member,” Wilson told The Daily Beast. “Then when I got into their IT and figured out everything that was going on, I was done with them.”

Wilson had developed concerns about the group’s finances, some of which, as The Wall Street Journal recently reported, allegedly funded the lifestyle of the Oath Keepers’ founder, Stewart Rhodes. But when Wilson reported his findings to fellow members, he told The Daily Beast, “nothing happened of it.” He felt as though Rhodes, a bombastic former lawyer, kept the group under his spell.

2. It's good to hear that The Oaf KKKreepers are in disarray. Getting them all behind bars is the

only thing that will be better.

4. They should be disillusioned over the central ideas...

…of the group, even more than from finding out someone is grifting off of it. Until they make that realization, there is no personal progress.
