Wow! When I consider my last two comments on Oath Keepers, this turn of events is almost comical.
Admittedly, I have not been particularly approving of recent trends there.
One of the new moderators operates on his emotions and personal agendas. He is overly sensitive about comments regarding rogue or oath breaking LEOs. He also will not just admit that he is Muslim. Every time the word is used, he goes into Muslim defense mode. The clues are all there. I believe he is a black American Muslim, and that is OK. It's the way he goes about the Muslim defense mode that bothers me. The feeling is that he is too ashamed to admit it, ...and I know he is not obligated to reveal or state his religion, but I get the feeling he prefers the membership not know that a Muslim is moderating the forum. That seems a little disingenuous to me. Of course, this is all conjecture on my part, so don't take me to the woodshed over it. Think of it as sharing my thoughts over the campfire.
A recent thread there was regarding a Muslim only cemetery. Some were against it. Others defended it. I simply stated, "I have nothing against a bunch of dead Muslims being buried together" .
My last comment on Oath Keepers before the site vanished was in a thread about how the forum had recently turned into a cyber ghost town. The debate was about why this was happening. Someone said it was due to the warmer weather. I commented that the change was more than a few days old and personally, my interest in Oath Keepers has been waning rapidly after more than 6 years with them. My final thought was, "I think my annual dues are coming due soon and I will be thinking very hard about whether to renew." Then the next time I try to log in, there is a message about a coming New Oath Keepers with no dues. Poetic/Ironic.
No, I don't have the computer savvy to hi-Jack a website, so it wasn't me.
