Oath Keeper Tells Me God Tells Him What Laws He Can Disobey
John Wallace, vice president of New York’s Oath Keepers group, came on my radio show to explain why he is urging his members (made up, he says, of past and present law enforcement officials) to disobey laws they believe are unconstitutional. Anomaly wrote it up.
“See, the people are supposed to be the boss,” Wallace said. “We’re telling people not to comply with an unconstitutional law.”
However, when taken to task by Colmes, he really couldn’t explain who should decide what laws should be obeyed or disobeyed.
“The courts determine what laws should be obeyed,” Colmes said.
Wallace said, ‘The laws are unconstitutional” to which Colmes responded, “You don’t get to decide that.”
“No right is absolute, and there’s nothing in the Constitution that says that there can’t be regulation,” Colmes said. “Just (Thursday), the Supreme Court made a decision on regulation of free speech. No right is absolute, and on what basis do you get to determine whether a law is enforceable or not?”
Wallace said his rights “Come from God.”
