A spokesman for Operation American Spring, whose participants hope to oust President Obama from office with their upcoming Washington, D.C. rally, is now claiming that the president plans to attack the event with a drone strike.
Terry Trussell, Operation American Spring’s chief of staff, told “Patriot Nation” host Mark Hoffmann last week that organizers are “expecting the unexpected,” including a drone strike. He noted, though, that a drone strike could reflect negatively on the administration: “When the government destroys the capital just to get rid of us, I think it’s going to work to their discredit.”
Hoffmann advised participants to bring bug-out bags to the event in case they “have to run for your life.”
Hoffman: You know, people are going to be down there for days. I said you might want to bring a bug out bag of sorts because you never know what’s going to happen down there, you may have to run for your life. It may never happen, they just go peacefully, these guys may step down and we’ll all pat each other on the back and say ‘God bless America, let’s get back to the Constitution and move on.’ But hindsight’s 20:20 and the worst can happen as well, and I told people bring bug out bags, get some walkie-talkies, go in a small group of 3 or 4 people, stay in communication, constant contact with your group, make an alternate meeting spot if you get split up from one another where you can find each other even if one person steps away, have a time limit, 20 minutes if you ain’t back meet me at the monument. Get together and stay together and be safe, always keep your eyes open because I’m sure there’s going to be people from the liberal-left-progressive side, the Marxists, the anti-freedom and liberty people, in the crowd starting trouble, that’s almost a guarantee.
Trussell: We have a liaison with these law enforcement agencies, we’re going to work in cooperation with them to keep the peace and to stop these people when they try to disrupt. We’ve got some strategies in place that can shut them down so fast and so completely that there won’t be any problems like that. Now if something bigger happens, you know they can pull in drones, but when the government destroys the capital just to get rid of us, I think it’s going to work to their discredit.
There is also apparently an Operation American Spring jingle promoting the anti-Obama event.
