Jim Garrow is a man of many, many claims. In November of this year, he claimed that President Obama had planned to nuke the United States. Prior to this, he’s insisted that he is an ex-CIA officer and that had personal knowledge of Presidential orders for the assassinations of both Andrew Breitbart and novelist Tom Clancy.
Now, in his latest bombshell revelation, Garrow is claiming that Lorette Fuddy, the former Hawaii health director who recently died in a plane crash, was actually killed with neurotoxin, with the plane crash being little more than a cover up.
Speaking to Erik Rush, a Fox News contributor and WND writer, Garrow went on to say “Your days are numbered, Barry.”
One can only assume that after his lifetime of supposed government service in CIA, that Garrow is comfortable using the nickname “Barry” for President Obama, considering that while rattling his plastic novelty store saber in such a way, he shows zero hesitation or concern for his own safety in light of the purported assassination plots.
Garrow is but the latest in a string of truly unhinged and likely delusional right wing enthusiasts to gain traction with the ardent anti-everything, “we’re-all-gonna-die” conservative fringe. With Teaparty.org now cozying up to sites like Infowars and Prisonplanet for source material, the bombastic and often bewildering claims of impending doom and murderous conspiracies have been flying in all directions as of late, leading many on the left, in the center and even numbers within the right wing itself to wonder what direction American conservatism is actually headed in.
Granted, those like Garrow, Alex Jones and Erik Rush still represent a diminutive minority voice within the conservative movement. However, whereas claims of assassination plots of novelists and plans for nuclear holocaust were once something one had to actively look for in the darker corners of America’s political sanitariums, they are now increasingly becoming an alarmingly central theme to the politics of many, more reactionary, less educated conservative activists, with many – some even being elected officials – making less-than-subtle threats against the President and any who oppose them.
And when the present enthusiasm for nonsense claims of secret plots and hidden identities is held against the raw electoral power that organizations like the Tea Party enjoyed in 2010, the prospects of this apparently growing conspiracy theory movement taking any more ground in the battle for the soul of the Republican Party can, if looked at from the right angel, be rather terrifying.
