In a speech to the New York chapter of his Oath Keepers organization last month, Stewart Rhodes encouraged his group’s members to organize and stock up on food in order to resist the government’s plan to institute martial law after bringing down the country with an economic collapse, a race war, ISIS attacks and unchecked immigration.
President Obama, Rhodes insisted, “would love nothing better than to see a race war. He would love to see that, and that’s what I think he’s trying to do.”
The race war, he explained, would all be part of a plan to impose martial law over a weak, hungry and nonresistant populace. He invoked New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, whensome police officers used excessive force and confusion abounded over whether the city was under martial law.
“My concern is that what we saw in Katrina is what you’re going to see nationwide,” Rhodes said. “I think that’s the intent. I think the intent is to collapse our economy, make it as bad as possible. That’s why they’re not preparing to feed you. What are they preparing to do? What are they stocking up on? MRAPs, ammunition. They’re preparing to control you, not feed you.”
“I think that keeping with that communist agenda of a fourth-generation warfare assault,” he continued, “the intent is to use an economic neutron bomb —doesn’t destroy the buildings, but it kills the people eventually, it starves you out — cause chaos, and in the middle of all that chaos, spark a race war, and in the middle of that, unleash these ISIS cells that are now all over the country. And they don’t just ignore the influx of these cells, they cultivate it, they give them fertilizer, water and fresh air and make them grow.”
He added that another part of this plot is an attempt to prevent new immigrants from assimilating “because the leftists in this country hate this country, they hate it, and they will get in bed with radical Islamists because they have a common enemy, western civilization.”
“I think it’s best for you to assume the worst,” he concluded, “that they are going to unleash what you could call a perfect storm. So picture Katrina, but all over the country.”
