Founder of Oath Keepers interviews Charles Robinson II and his sons at the Boston Free Speech Rally. Robinson blood has been spilled in every war since WWII. They tell how they feel about Antifa burning the American flag while flying the communist flag, and discuss what it means to be willing to "lace up their boots" to defend this nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
Sr Robinson Served as an 11B in the 24th Infantry Division, and his son Charles Robinson III served as an 11B in the 1st Infantry Division (Big Red One) in Iraq.
The father's statement on how his family will ALWAYS answer the call, and how he raised his sons to be willing to die on their feet rather than live on their knees, and how they will NOT let Anti-fa destroy all their family fought for was the best speech of the day. Powerful. Please spread this awesome statement of what it means to serve far and wide.
Oath Keepers, including retired police and military, were there on the ground at the Boston Free Speech Rally on May 13, 2017, helping to protect the attendees against Antifa violence.
NOTE FROM STEWART:
It was an honor, and one of the highlights of a great day, to meet this patriot military family that has a multi-generation tradition of service to this nation. Father and both sons are Trump supporters and also very hardcore supporters of both the Second Amendment and the First Amendment. And that is why they were there at the rally. The father's hat said: "The Second Amendment Protects the First."
They are local Boston area residents and told me they were glad they came to the rally. You can see they got pretty emotional when I asked them what they thought of Antifa and the communists burning American flags (we did not see that in Boston on May 13 but we have all seen it on YouTube being done across the country).
The father's statement about his family's commitment to "lace up their boots" and answer the call whenever this nation is threatened really was the best speech of the day and made my eyes tear up.
He told how the men in his family served in the Navy in the Pacific in WWII and then his father served in the Korean War and then died in Vietnam. His uncle also fought in Vietnam but made it home. He served in the 24th Infantry in the 70's and his son, Charles the third, served in Iraq.
All that was backdrop for his powerful statement that "those &@@$! communists will not take this (pointing to the ground) from us, or all they fought for will be for nothing."
Father and both sons joined us for the march and when they got back the son spoke to the crowd and gave a damn fine speech, coming from the heart of a combat veteran infantryman about how good it made him feel to be there and to march with all of us.
I asked father and sons to join Oath Keepers and they accepted the invite. And then they joined us for beers and dinner afterwards.
