Buster Wilson's Latest Conspiracy Theory
Earlier this month the American Family Association’s Buster Wilson, who loves floating false conspiracy theories, warned that Obama was creating his own “version of the Brownshirts” through a security program known as the National Defense Executive Reserve and has existed for decades. The AFA posted a video of Wilson entitled, “Is DHS Plotting A Civil War,” and then turned around and removed the video from their YouTube channel; fortunately, we grabbed the video.
Today on his program, Wilson reacted to reports that the Department of Homeland Security is “seeking riot gear for the presidential conventions and inauguration.” The DHS works to provide security for National Special Security Events, which include “presidential inaugurations, presidential nominating conventions, major sports events, and major international meetings” that are deemed security targets. Wilson went on to conflate the NDER program and the DHS decision to, as usual, provide security for the presidential inauguration and major party conventions, and claim he was “proven right” while Right Wing Watch was very wrong.
Unfortunately for Wilson, providing security for events like inaugurations and the Super Bowl is not the same as reestablishing the Brownshirts.
