Executive Summary

The Oath Keepers are a radical antigovernment group that “claims tens of thousands of present and former law enforcement officials and military veterans as members,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. TTP reported this call to arms to appropriate authorities at the time.

The Oath Keepers are a large but loosely organized collection of anti-government extremists who are part of the broader anti-government “Patriot” movement, which includes militia and “three percenter” groups, sovereign citizens, and tax protesters, among others. What differentiates the Oath Keepers from other anti-government extremist groups is that the Oath Keepers explicitly focus on recruiting current and former military members, police officers and firefighters (although they accept anyone as members).
