“and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government”
The Declaration of Independence
We believe we are at a tipping point for our country and there needs to be a counter movement to the very motivated, organized, and well-funded efforts of the evil doctrines that threaten our safety, prosperity, rights and freedoms. They say "silence is a virtue" however they use our virtues against us to gain control of our institutions, communities, and lives. While we have been polite and silent, they have been loud and organized. Many feel isolated, weak, and powerless against this loud minority. The "silent majority" has led to disastrous results for our country and community by being apathetic and saying things like "all I can do is vote”. Some of us do not even do that. We convince ourselves that we have "good excuses”, such as avoiding conflict and confrontation or hurt feelings. This “silence” has led to many individuals in our community not feeling safe to express their beliefs and opinions because they fear being bullied, censored, boycotted, shamed, terminated, and even physically harmed. Worse are the virtue signalers who are only concerned about their superficial moral and social standing, falling over each other trying to be more politically correct than the other. Even the innocent act of putting a campaign sign in the yard, running for school board, or a student disagreeing with a teacher’s political bias is feared. These reasons, fears, and threats are real; however, silence means acceptance and only exacerbates the disease. Silence in the face of lies is the reason we continue to head down a path many of us do not want to go. Hope is not a strategy. At some point you need to get educated, engaged, speak the Truth and SHOW UP.
Started in March of 2021 the Patriots of Ozaukee County (POZ) started as a small group of concerned citizens who were frustrated with such things as mask mandates, vax bullying, defunding the police, election fraud, CRT/DEI in our schools, the inaction of our elected officials and the overall downward spiral of our Country. We realized remaining polite and silent was no longer an option.
We believed there needed to be a counter movement to the very motivated, organized, and well-funded efforts of radical ideologies that threaten our constitutional rights and freedoms.
We decided to not be affiliated with any political party because we realized this is not a political battle. This is a battle between good and evil. Between freedom and tyranny.
Today we are a network of individuals who are awake to the evil doctrines designed to destroy our freedoms, sovereignty and ultimately our local community and Country.
We are committed to each other to get educated, get engaged, no longer remain silent and to SHOW UP when called.
Mission: Organize a network of Patriots, armed with the Truth, knowledge and courage to oppose the forces that threaten our community’s safety, prosperity, rights and freedoms.
Patriot: A person who solemnly swears that they will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Provide the people* of Ozaukee County the knowledge and courage to speak the Truth, in order to combat the forces that threaten our safety, prosperity and freedoms.
What can you do?
A couple hundred years ago a few thousand fairly well-organized Minutemen changed the world. We believe a few hundred Patriots can do something similar right here in Ozaukee County. In no way do we condone violence; however, we are in a fight with forces that threaten our freedoms, rights, and pursuit of happiness. Are you willing to attend a school board meeting, run for office or peacefully stand in support of a policy, cause or a person those who needs our support and protection? Are you ready to SHOW UP when called?
