Conspiracy theorist king, Alex Jones, of Infowars.com has teamed up with Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt (again) to come up with another doozie!
According to their fevered minds, President Obama (isn't it always him?) is training the U.S. military to target Tea Party supporters and like-minded citizens for "military force."
According to an article:
The conservative Washington Times reported the story as if Obama had invented a provision of federal law that allowed for intervention by the military on domestic soil “in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the president is impossible.” However, the clause is a longstanding one that has been in effect under many presidents.
Jones, however, interprets the law to be official confirmation that the U.S. military is, at this moment, “training with tanks, armored vehicles, drones” to “take on the American people, mainly the Tea Party.” ...
Jones referred back to the 2009 DHS report, saying that the Obama administration has “fingered veterans as potential terrorists, people who believe in the Second Amendment, who are pro-life, who want to work for limited government.”
“I guess the idea of limited government really would terrorize a socialist,” he continued. “The enemy is freedom and they really are doing what they can to extinguish it.”That's right. According to Jones and Pratt, the army will kill veterans, Second Amendment supporters, pro-life people, and general Tea Party supporters, using tanks and drones and armored vehicles.
Of course, they offer no evidence whatsoever other than paranoid reading of an obscure law that has never been used. But, hey, who says it has to make sense?
Just another wacko pro-gun conspiracy theory!
