Marion County, Florida’s regularly scheduled school board meeting was briefly interrupted as the vice-chair embarked on an Alex Jonesy paranoid rant about what sounds like alleged attempts to convert her to Islam, the feds, a secret 9/11 code, hostage taking, and some guy named Ahmed.
Angie Boynton, who is endorsed by the local Tea Party, is described as “typically quiet at board meetings” and as a person who “usually only makes brief comments” by a local reporter, but she broke from the usual script near the end of a televised Tuesday night school board meeting with a claim that someone wanted her to use the broadcast to communicate with them.
[box type=”shadow”]”There is someone watching this television show tonight who would like for me to respond to some questions for them, and so I am going to take the opportunity to let you know I got your message and I do believe that God is greater than any concern you sent to me.”[/box]
She informed this unknown person that they did not have her daughter hostage, and that she believes God has freed her. “I can not bow down to Islam,” she said, “in the sense that I was raised to love and respect God — the God that I know.”
She discussed a meeting with a man named Ahmed. “I will say to you, you understand that I did meet with Ahmed,” she said. “Like Ahmed understood, I will walk away from any conversation that is deadly or is confrontational or has some hatred in it.”
She said that God has given her a sound mind. Then it got weird. Yes, this is the point at which things got crazy–with secret 9/11 messages!
[box type=”shadow”]”I broke down a code. And I sent it to George Bush, former president George Bush. And I also sent it to former Gov. Jeb Bush. And I think my actions in breaking that code down, coming from where I am from, will let you know that it was about 9/11 … you are going to get sketchy thoughts. I am not able to talk to anyone about it. And the police are not able to come near me and they should continue their stance with that. I do have help, and I am OK. But there was someone who wanted to hear something on TV, so I hope I pleased you.[/box]
When asked about her remarks at the meeting, she explained that she deciphered a code during 9/11 and that she began receiving threats after the Marion County School Board discussed how a textbook addressed Islam. She claims that someone had taken her adult daughter hostage, and explained that someone had attempted to force her to convert to Islam.
Boynton says that when she took the alleged threats to police, she was asked if she was in therapy.
She told the local news that she wanted to air everything publicly so that the supposed threats could not compromise her as an elected official.
Boynton denies having any mental health issues and says she is not on any medication–something that, perhaps, should change.
And now, for your enjoyment…
