Words of Wisdom from an Oath Keeper

Doc Speaks!

Doc is a typical commenter on far-right discussion boards, like True Conservative. He is typical of the Republican base -- the Trump base, especially -- and he speaks his mind. Frequently. (He also claims to be an Oath Keeper, by the way...) Here are a few of his Words of Wisdom:
  • You and a few million other libs I will kill soon!
  • You beaner POS fuck you, eat shit & die! (In response to Juan TwoTree)
  • Piss off nigger muslim queer!
  • Listen you POS to what is awaiting you cocksucker, your asshole will have a 12 ga shoved deep inside you & fired making one less muslim nigger queer!

  • What life? You are a fucking foreign queer muslim POS so Eat Shit & Die!
  • Cocksucker I hope I get to fucking chop off your POS head!
  • I hate all muslims & can't wait to kill more & more commies!
  • Obama the muslim terrorist American foreign enemy combatant demands from us Oath Keepers to kill him & entire illegal regime!
  • Now you done it! This American Patriot will kill libs, nigs, muslims, commies & all invading illegal aliens!
  • You must be part of the coup with the military & hundreds of millions patriots who will kill everything in DC this year.
  • Patriots by the millions await as does most gun owners, that puts our numbers well over 165 million, we need the US Armed Forces to be retaken by discarded Generals, etc. to come back get the men & coup DC and everything alive killed! I say Trump has hard evidence about Obama that will start the war soon, this year!
  • Fuck niggers, muslims, commies & all of the other assorted trash in our land!

If you want to speak English, go back to England...

The First And True Language Of America » Funny & Stupid Customer Stories – Not Always Right: "The First And True Language Of America
(I’m waiting in line behind a woman speaking on her cellphone in another language. Ahead of her is a white man. After the woman hangs up, he speaks up.)

Man: “I didn’t want to say anything while you were on the phone, but you’re in America now. You need to speak English.”

Woman: “Excuse me?”

Man: *very slow* “If you want to speak Mexican, go back to Mexico. In America, we speak English.”

Woman: “Sir, I was speaking Navajo. If you want to speak English, go back to England.”"

The Infamous Letter to Dr. Laura

snopes.com: Letter to Dr. Laura:

"Dear Dr. Laura,

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and I try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind him that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the specific laws and how to best follow them.

a) When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord (Lev 1:9). The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

b) I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

c) I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness (Lev 15:19-24). The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

d) Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

e) I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

f) A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an Abomination (Lev 11:10), it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this?

g) Lev 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?

h) Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev 19:27. How should they die?

i) I know from Lev 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

j) My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? (Lev 24:10-16) Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help.

Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

Your devoted disciple and adoring fan."
