Jim Garrow, the obvious fraud who claims that Obama tried to drop nuclear weapons on South Carolina last year, has been making the rounds of the far-right fever swamps, peddling his nonsense to wingnuts and conspiracy mavens who will believe absolutely anything if it makes Obama look bad. He told Paul Preston, an Agenda 21 conspiracy nut, that Obama is borderline mentally ill and about to impose martial law.
Garrow: I see him as being a fifth column, that body or group of people that come in and their whole idea is to wreak havoc everywhere they turn. Obviously, that’s exactly what’s happened with everything this president is doing. He’s wreaking havoc, destroying the constitution and the rule of law. He has to be stopped.
Preston: Do you think the prospect of martial law in America is a real prospect?
Garrow: Yes it is. That’s what a spoiled brat, a petulant child will do: throw tantrums. They’ll always go and the pendulum will swing all the way in another direction with them, there’s no common ground, there’s no stability and that’s what we see with this man, he’s not a stable person, psychologically stable or whatever. I believe he is on the edge of being mentally ill.
And what would a wingnut rant be without Godwin?
Preston: What is his end game then here with the United States? To destroy it as much as possible in his time? To totally destroy it? To bring in a police state? We’re seeing the militarization of our regular police all over the place, is that his end game? To literally take over the United States almost Nazi style?
Garrow: It’s all of the above, I’ve got to agree with everything you have said right there.
It occurs to me that the internet is a very useful tool against the far right paranoids, both because we can expose the bizarre things they claim now but because it will be very easy down the line to point out the false predictions they made before. In January, 2017, when Obama leaves office peacefully having never nuked the country, imposed natural law, rounded up Christians into FEMA camps or any of the other ridiculous things they continually say he’s going to do, those false predictions will be preserved for all to see.
