Despicable conspiracy lunatic Alex Jones and ammosexual gun fetishist Larry Pratt had an interesting conversation this week. That is, if your definition of “interesting” is paranoid, delusional, and hateful. They were discussing how the Obama administration was going to use the US military to target Teabagger groups. Lunatics like Jones and Pratt have been using the 2009 Department of Homeland Security report on the increasing danger of extremist right wing groups to foment anger, fear, and violence. Entitled Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment, the report warns about the rise of radical militias, white supremacists, and other right wing, anti-government groups. Considering recent events, the report was actually quite prescient. Of course, Jones is completely unhinged and claims that the recent shootings have all been “False Flag” ruses to confiscate guns, or something.
They are currently foaming at the mouth about a recent Washington Times report about a 2010 Pentagon directive, which was merely a routine update of previous directives from past administrations, describing how and under what circumstances the military can use force to quell domestic unrest. Turns out the only appropriate situations are “in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the president is impossible.” In the crazy world of Alex Jones, this means that it is “official and has been confirmed” that the military is “training with tanks, armored vehicles, drones” to “take on the American people, mainly the Tea Party.” Pratt responded:
“Well, he’s certainly not thinking that Muslims are a threat, so he’s turning to his political opponents, declaring that they’re the enemy and ignoring the fact that Muslims from time to time have a tendency to go ‘boom.’”
Listen to the gibberish yourself:
