Oath Keepers Places Pro-Snowden Sign at White House Stop on D.C. Metro, Featuring Obama as “Big Brother.”

Oath Keepers has placed a large sign featuring President Obama as “Big Brother” at the Washington D.C. Metro stop closest to the White House, praising Edward Snowden for exposing the NSA spying on Americans and urging White House employees to follow Snowden’s example by becoming whistle-blowers.


Last month Oath Keepers placed a similar sign at the Pentagon Station stop on the Washington Metro subway.  That done in the style of the theater scene from George Orwell’s 1984, featured Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, as ‘Big Brother” but now the graphic has been upgraded to feature Obama as Big Brother since he remains unrepentant even after Snowden’s embarrassing exposure of a snooping program the Administration denied ever existed.  And besides, Obama, as “Commander-in-Chief’ and as the Chief Executive, is clearly the biggest “Big Brother” of them all and is responsible for what the executive branch he leads is doing.

Nonetheless, you can bet there will be cries of “racist!” from the radical left because we dare to criticize their anointed god, despite the fact that we first featured Clapper – about as white a guy as you can imagine – as Big Brother, and despite the fact that Obama is the President, after-all (exactly who should we criticize if not him, for the policies of his Administration?).


The sign makes it clear that by exposing the NSA spying on Americans, Snowden honored his oath, and White House employees should follow his example by exposing other crimes against the Constitution.   We do  want to make it clear that, as we have stated previously, we are not defending or praising Snowden’s disclosure of U.S. intelligence operations against other countries.  We ARE defending and praising his exposure of unconstitutional U.S. intelligence operations against the American people.  When the Federal Government violates the Supreme Law of the Land and treats the American people like a foreign enemy, exposing that crime is the right thing to do.  And when that government is run by the very criminals who gave the orders to treat Americans like a foreign enemy, the “normal” channels for whistle-blowers are closed and all that is left is to blow the whistle to the real bosses – the American people themselves.  Which is exactly what Snowden did.

And the same goes for the Fast and Furious running of guns to the Mexican drug cartels,or for the truth of what happened at Benghazi, and for exposing the clear and imminent DHS preparation for a domestic war against freedom loving Americans, etc. – when the criminals are in charge of the government, the only recourse is to blow the Whistle to We the People so we can put a stop to it.   Those in government have a duty to expose government crimes against the Constitution.

Additional signs will be revealed at other DC area stations, in September, which will be as close to the CIA, DHS, and other national security/intelligence agencies as we can get them.  They will continue our campaign to get those in the know, inside government, to fulfill their oaths by simply exposing the crimes against the Constitution  that we know are going on.

This is part of a broader effort to place billboards at strategic locations throughout the United States.  We already have billboard outside of military bases at Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Base; Fort Benning, Fort Hood, Fort Stewart, and Hunter Army Airfield.  You can see all of those billboards, and help us in this effort, by going to

As long as you keep supporting this effort, we will keep putting up billboards till we have them outside of every major military base in America.  And along with the billboards, we will be handing out pocket Constitutions and issue pamphlets to active duty on the way into the bases.  In fact, our chapter at Ft. Hood, TX chapter has already handed out over 3,000 pocket Constitutions to active duty soldiers at Ft. Hood.  Way to go, Texas!

For the Republic!
