The Jersey City Police Dept. has made a public announcement saying that they have disciplined various officers for their affiliation with an “Oath Keepers” group called the “Three-Percenters”.

The police department has labeled these groups as “anti-government extremists”, because they claim a moral motivation that supersedes the demands of authority. This group is affiliated with the Oath Keepers and are known as the “Three-Percenters”.

According to their website:

ThreePercenter.ORG is a Three Percenter community website promoting the ideals of liberty, freedom and a constitutional government restrained by law.

This site is run by freedom-loving Americans, however we can enjoy the company of those from other nations who share our cause.

What is a Three Percenter?

The Three Percent concept and idea was created by Mike Vanderboegh.

Roughly three percent of the population fought for liberty at any given time during the American war for Independence. With a colonial population of 2,500,000 to 3,000,000 only about 250,000 men served during the war with never more than 90,000 men serving at any given time.

Historians have estimated that approximately 40-45% of the colonists supported the rebellion while 15-20% of the population of the thirteen colonies remained loyal to the British Crown. The remaining 35-45% attempted to remain neutral.

A note: Threepercenter.org does not directly represent Three Percenters everywhere, we do however share in the Three Percenter spirit and ideology (and identify ourselves as Three Percenters). We cherish and work to defend our 2nd Amendment rights along with all our rights and liberties.

There are many members within various police departments and other government offices, and as expected their superiors are not happy about their involvement with such organizations.

A local newspaper reported that:

A clique of officers who calls themselves “Three-Percenters” in the Jersey City Police Department’s Emergency Services Unit sprouted about two years ago, officials have told The Jersey Journal.

They were separating themselves from the others in the unit and we put a stop to it immediately,” Jersey City Police Deputy Chief Peter Nalbach said.

In a brief telephone interview from Tennessee, Michael Graham said that he believes the officers have a right to have their own political beliefs — and in fact that there are many police, firefighters and veterans among the “three percenters.”

“We don’t collect any money, or ask anyone for anything, but maybe we should because we could help out the police officers who were unnecessarily disciplined,” Graham said.

Heh, seriously I wonder why the NJPD felt threatened by this? All officers should swear to uphold the constitution as the supreme law of the land.

None of the stories I've seen have said what the discipline was. "We put a stop to it," and those involved were disciplined," JCPD Deputy Chief Peter Nalbach said. "

Wonder what they put a stop to. Did the officers stop beliving in the 3% line of thought and convert to fanatical liberalism? Stop talking to each other? Commit to not reading internet sites?

No where in the story in the original post does this line appear.

Who knows? What does "seperating themselves from others" mean? That's why this story is stupid, and why people who post such stupidity should think first before posting such terribly-written garbage.

They were made to take a course on sensitivity training taught by Piers Morgan.

I figured since you quoted from it you had some deeper insight. The entire thing reeks of dumbass. You cant stop people from thinking about politics or talking to others about it.

Here's the story on another site I pulled the other quote from. I'm not sure why this one originally posted didn't include it.

Oh, that clears it up. :facepalm:

If right-wingers want to live some paranoid fantasy where people are "disciplined" for merely affiliating with certain political groups or for thinking particular thoughts, that's up to them. Since the story, because it gives no real details, forces us to guess what actually happened, here's a guess.

Some of these guys were part of this 3% group, and not a shit was given. But, in a job that requries cooperation and trust between co-workers, they were complete assholes to the guys who didn't want to constantly hear about it. They were told to stop being assholes.
