Texas GOP Governor Embraces Martial Law Conspiracy Theory
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is ordering the State Guard to “monitor Operation Jade Helm 15,” a military exercise that has become the center of a far-right conspiracy theory regarding martial law, gun confiscation and Walmarts, which some of the theory’s promoters claim will be transformed into FEMA Camps.
End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles said on his “Trunews” radio program yesterday that the military exercise may be designed to spark a reaction in southern and western states, which could then be put down by the federal government. He boasted that he made the not-at-all-vague prediction that “2015 will be the year that we will see significant trouble in the United States of America.”
Last month, Wiles said that Jade Helm 15 would be America’s version of the “Night of the Long Knives” and alleged that the drill is “the preparation for or the actual implementation of a roundup of patriotic men who have the capacity to influence and inspire the citizenry to resist a coup against the Republic.”
“InfoWars,” the conspiracy theory network, reacted to the news by wondering whether Abbott is actually saying that “the Texas military is going to work with the Jade Helm forces in conducting these exercises.” (About 6:25 in, you can also watch Alex Jones reveal some body-building photos of himself).
