Stewart Rhodes is the founder and leader of the Oath Keepers. With his eye patch giving him a unique look, Steward has become notoriously known as one of the most recognizable leaders of the anti-government movement.
Another thing about him is his fiery voice which he uses to preach his ‘Gospel of Protecting the constitution’.
As founder of the Oath Keepers, part of the self-styled militia segment of the far-right, Rhodes projected himself as the commander of a private army willing to confront “tyrannical” federal authorities and defend the Constitution by any means necessary.
One question that people ask most about Rhodes is why he uses an eye patch and how he did lose his eye?
How did Stewart Rhodes lose his eye?
Steward Rhodes lost his eye in 1993. According to sources, he used to be a firearms instructor. Sadly for him, he one day accidentally dropped a firearm that was loaded. The handgun upon hitting the floor fired and shot him in the face. This led to a blinding in his left eye. That was how Steward Rhodes lost his eye.
