RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.
Even as America — save Texas — is about to fall under a military dictatorship, the right-wing media has also found time this week to stoke fears about gay marriage and race riots.
5) Race War Is Upon Us … Again
While demonstrations and riots in Baltimore drew many people into conversations about racial profiling and socioeconomic challenges facing the black community, conservative pundits knew what was really going on: a full-blown race war. This race war, some even allege, was all planned out by the Obama administration, giving it cover to carry out a federal government takeover of local police forces and possibly implement martial law.
“This is a show,” Glenn Beck said. “We’re watching a script and a play play out in front of us. None of this stuff is real. Those riots in Baltimore. That wasn’t real … At some point, there will be a straw that breaks the camel’s back, and it will set the whole country on fire. And what happens? We will cry out for police help. The police will be overwhelmed. The DOJ will say, ‘We’re going to take over policing, we’ll coordinate it from here.’ And you’re done. It’s lights out, republic.”
Morgan Brittany of WorldNetDaily had a similar take, calling the Baltimore riots a “planned” project of the Obama administration that will give the president a reason “to institute martial law to preserve order, form a national police force and postpone the 2016 elections.”
Right-wing talk show host Michael Savage even went so far as to say that President Obama will “deputize” gang members as his personal “brown shirts”: “It’s a race war. These are their shock troops, they don’t have the brown shirts yet, they don’t have the armbands, but soon Obama could deputize them. Isn’t that a natural army for him? Take the Crips and the Bloods, give them a green uniform and give them a weapon and they’ll keep order in the streets.”
4) Jade Helm 15 Takeover
Now that the race war is here, it’s only a matter of time before Obama declares martial law, and according to some right-wing observers, the upcoming Jade Helm 15 military drill is practice for a military takeover that will include forcing political prisoners into cattle cars and shipping them off to Wal-Mart FEMA camps.
As Stewart Rhodes of the radical Oath Keepers explains, the exercise is meant to “condition the public” and military service members to go along with a military coup, or at least become too afraid to rise against it.
One post on the Oath Keepers website adds: “It strikes many people as a portentous government plan, a pre-fabricated and pre-constructed umbrella under which a black op by the Deep State’s compartmentalized agencies could possibly ‘Go Live’ in a fantastic sort of Shock and Awe False Flag psycho-coup to jar the public mind of America through fear into acceptance of some nefarious policy the government desired, such as the establishment of Martial Law and the complete loss of individual liberty and our Constitution. To do that, the public mind must be conditioned first. That is part of what is behind the Special Operation Command’s Jade Helm 15.”
3) Obama To Blame For Texas Attack
After two terrorists who claimed to be working with the so-called Islamic State attempted to attack an anti-Islam event in Texas, right-wing activists were quick to decry…Obama.
As one Fox News guest, Steven Rogers, claimed, the president’s supposed anti-police stance gave the assailants an opening: “ISIS and terrorist organizations are listening to politicians in Baltimore, the ones that are politicizing everything, the President of the United States wanting to disarm the police.”
“[Obama] may have some involvement in this incident in Texas,” Rush Limbaugh said, citing the president’s 2012 speech to the UN General Assembly, where he said that while religious bigotry shouldn’t be condoned, “no country should deny people their rights to freedom of speech.” Limbaugh argued that Obama’s remarks “sort of greenlight people in ISIS who want to take up arms and go after people who they believe are slandering the prophet.”
2) ‘War Against Heaven’
If you thought the race war was bad, try warring against God. At least, that is what Religious Right activist Bradlee Dean warns of in his WorldNetDaily column, “Supremes Contemplate Making War Against Heaven.”
Dean demands that Congress impeach “the first sodomite president” and “radical lesbian” Supreme Court justice Elena Kagan, among others, who decide to “break God’s laws” by supporting marriage equality:
As the Supreme Court looks at the issue of redefining marriage, the first sodomite president,” Barack Obama, and his administration have already asked and gotten the Supreme Court to strike down the federal law defining marriage as a union between only a man and a woman.
Of course, to do that Obama had to set the stage. He repealed “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” and place 225 homosexuals in key positions. Then he appointed a radical lesbian to the bench of the Supreme Court, Elena Kagan.
America needs to come to terms and understand that no president, no administration, no Supreme Court, has a right to break God’s laws.
America, your only hope is responding to the crimes of those who believe that they are above the law, which they are not. Impeachment and indictment are the rightful remedies for such criminals found in Article II, Sections 4, and Article III, Section 1, of our Constitution.
1) We’re Doomed
Now that the Supreme Court is on the brink of pushing America into civil war and revolution by striking down bans on same-sex marriage, conservatives are reaching full-blown panic mode.
“If this court decides that they’re going to change the definition of marriage,” Rep. Steve King warned, “that then throws the country into an endless trauma.”
Focus on the Family founder James Dobson added that marriage equality will have “breathtaking” consequences: “It reaches every corner, every dimension of society. We are talking about the death knell of religious liberty in America.”
Perhaps no one captured the mood better than Rafael Cruz, the father and campaign surrogate of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who told one Republican group that gay marriage is part of “the agenda to destroy America.”
