“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned;

if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity;

but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

Ezekiel 33:6

"A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring."

Proverbs 25:26

"These are the times that try men's souls..."

"During times of universal deceit,
telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act."
- George Orwell
Ben Franklin knew the importance of strength in numbers when he famously said,
“We shall all hang together; or most assuredly, we will all hang separately.”   

Fast-forward to today. Florida Oath Keepers still agree with this sentiment. Hence, the introduction of our CPT, our willingness to stand with Liberty County Sheriff, Nick Finch, and now our honor to stand alongside Burnie Thompson.

Burnie is no stranger to the Florida Oath Keepers. He has been a strong ally and friend who himself took the oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. He proudly served as a U.S. Air Force Captain.

Always passionate, but never rude, Burnie brings clarity to complex issues without getting caught up in the thick of thin things. His comments on current events are strikingly original, succinct and compelling … underscored by his concerns as a father of two young girls; his affinity for classic movies and literature; and his experience as a former U.S. Air Force officer.  

Burnie reminds politicians to expand freedom and protect the family budget from government plunder. He is fed up with snoops, busybodies and thieves masquerading as public servants – and calls them out by name, often debating them on the air. They soon realize that his allegiance is to principle over partisanship.  The Burnie Thompson Show gives Americans a place to link arms and make a difference.  In the past, Burnie has personally linked arms with Oath Keepers to make that stand. And, as you’ll see, he’s not afraid to do what’s right and face the consequences.

Burnie Thompson is NO "Sunshine Patriot"; but rather a man of truth and honor.  When faced with the option of losing his job or telling the truth, Burnie did not flinch. “We have to do all we can to restore this Republic. It won’t be painless and comes at a cost. I accept that.”  For the first time in his 8-years on Talk Radio 101 (WYOO), Burnie was given a gag order by the station. The owner told him not to criticize his U.S. Representative Steve Southerland (R-FL) by name because it would help a Democrat get elected.

Burnie is a former U.S. Air Force Captain and he continued to demand that Southerland remove his name as a co-sponsor of the Enlist Act (HR 2377), which would put illegal aliens in the U.S. military and give them permanent legal status. Burnie says this is wrong for many reasons, but it is especially reprehensible when nearly 100,000 Americans are being cut from our military.  Known for his relentless efforts to champion Constitutional values, Burnie had become a serious problem for Southerland’s reelection effort in the upcoming midterm election.  After receiving tremendous political pressure, WYOO fired Burnie on August 1, claiming that his ratings had plummeted 40 percent.  However, facts are stubborn things. The bi-annual Nielsen Ratings came out just three business days later. And the latest Nielsen Ratings - the time period cited for his termination – indicated that Burnie's show doubled Rush Limbaugh's ratings, head-to-head in the prime demographic (25-54), at his flagship station in Panama City, FL.  "That’s not because I'm better than Rush; it's because when you listen to Limbaugh, you're a spectator," Burnie says. "When you listen to our show, you're a participant. We link arms every day and do our best to expand freedom and protect the family budget. And even if the odds are stacked against us, that doesn’t absolve each of us from doing all we can together."

It’s clear that Burnie wasn’t fired for poor ratings. He has been WYOO’s star performer since 2007. In fact, Burnie spent his first four years hammering his-then U.S. Representative Allen Boyd (D-FL). Nobody did more to help Southerland get elected than Burnie.
While Southerland has changed his tune since being elected, Burnie stayed true. In fact, ever since Burnie took to the radio in 2007 he has not flipped on a single issue. That’s because he’s mastered the issues, and believes in Liberty to his core.
The power players who knocked Burnie off the air were startled when billboards popped up all over town as he immediately launched his Internet Radio Show. “The truth will have its day!” Burnie insisted.  Burnie says www.MyFreedomRadio.com is “something you can believe in.”
“I would get fired 100 more times to prevent illegal aliens from joining our military.
It is an honor to wear our uniform.
Our military is not a vehicle for amnesty!
 says Burnie.
Burnie has a history of taking a principled stand, like when he fought to get little Marissa Amora the money the state owed her for the DCF’s negligence that led to her brutal assault that left her with severe brain damage.

Or when he explained the Boot Camp case to us and it played out in the courtroom the same way.
Or when he chipped away at the 7-term seemingly invincible Congressman Allen Boyd, who eventually was voted out. Burnie led the biggest rally in Bay County history in that monumental effort to get Southerland elected.

“Ultimately, I was protecting the Office of Sheriff and its Constitutional authority against the encroachment of our Governor and a rogue State Attorney. And we fought to restore the election of Liberty County. Thank God we won!

Ironically, Sheriff Finch had traveled to WYOO and was the very last guest on the very last segment of Burnie’s radio show on that station. The moment the show ended that Friday, August 1, Burnie was fired.

When was the last time you lost your job for standing on principle? 
Burnie Thompson can answer that question!

When asked if he would do anything different, he said,
"I would get fired 100 more times to prevent illegal aliens from joining our military.”

BURNIE NEEDS OUR HELP NOW. He has no start-up capital; only debt. While he is currently building his subscription base and cache of local advertisers, he needs immediate financial support to keep this cause alive.  He has stood firmly with us all these years; now it’s time that we stand with him.

Let’s help Burnie continue to shine a spotlight in the shadows of corruption; and to provide that warm lamp of reason so we can have more enlightened citizens who understand civics, economics and history.

Will you allow a media company and/or any political party shut down your voice just because it exposes the truth?  Let’s not let our Voice of Freedom be silenced!

“In the beginning of revolution the patriot is a scarce man, brave, hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds the timid join him, for it then costs nothing to be a patriot.” 
- Mark Twain

Burnie has also begun Season 2 of his TV Show on Fox 28 WPGX.

"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as Freedom should not be highly rated..." 
- Thomas Paine, The American Crisis,
December 23rd, 1776
