Obama to Declare Martial Law. Yes, Again.

Wayne Allyn Root, former Libertarian Party presidential candidate and world class wingnut, has a Worldnetdaily column claiming that — and stop me if you’ve heard this one before — Obama is behind everything happening in Ferguson, MO, and he’s using it to distract attention from (fill in the blank) and to justify imposing martial law.

So how do you hide and distract the masses from this unfolding multi-pronged disaster? How do you try to change landslide losses in the upcoming midterm elections? You change the game. You create strife and division. Racial division. It’s the perfect cover.

Watch tonight’s news. Count the minutes on all these stories versus Ferguson. It’s Obama’s dream come true! The perfect distraction. Heck, not only is Ferguson eating up all the air in the room, but Brian Williams and the NBC national news was coming from Ferguson last night. Can you imagine if unrest, rioting and looting spreads to cities across America? It will dominate the news for weeks, pushing all Obama’s disasters off the air.

Obama has stirred the pot for six years now. Black against white. Rich against poor. Men against women. Republicans against Democrats. Private sector against public servants. Taxpayers against the tax takers. Obama needs “division.” Race warfare. Class warfare. Anger. Resentment. Civil war. America is bursting at the seams. It’s all part of the agenda. It’s all part of the Cloward-Piven plan we learned as classmates at Columbia University, Class of ’83. Obama desperately needs to distract the people to carry out his plan to destroy this country. He is following the plan to a T…

Ferguson just happened to come along at the perfect time. It’s exactly what Obama needed. Ferguson is the perfect match to light the fire. Here is the perfect opportunity to divide the nation, to incite unrest and violence across America.

If the American people are fighting each other, they won’t see what is really happening to the country. And think of the bonuses here. Obama could use spreading unrest to declare martial law. This crisis could accelerate Obama’s plans times a thousand. Cloward and Piven are smiling. Saul Alinsky is nodding. Karl Marx is applauding.

I think we’ve hit peak distraction, where everything that happens is just a distraction from everything else that happens. And seriously, how many times do you get to declare that some event is going to be used to declare martial law and not have martial law ever be declared before people just tune you out as the wingnut who cried wolf?

    Any sign of even one of the Faithful getting a adrenal fatigue yet? No. President Clinton (Chelsea, that is) will be long out of office before this schtick wears out.

    Do these nutters EVER explain towards what end these conspiracies are working?

    Destroy America? What does that even mean?

    Why has Karl Marx suddenly return to being important in wingnut diatribes after being virtually forgotten for a couple of decades? Did someone read a book?

    Circular distractions, a new variation on an old fallacy.

    As far as I can tell, his point is: Obama is creating a distraction so that he won’t lose the Presidency in the upcoming midterm election. Who knew he was even running?

    Ah, but Bozo is napping, and Lassie is wagging.

    Wow! That’s some weapons-grade Fischer Projection right there.

    What? Obama didn’t use his cloak of invisibility to personally shoot Michael Brown and pin the rap on a white cop? This guy is a conspiracy theory piker!

    Now you’ve got me wondering why none of these nuts have ever complained about the helicopters being black. [suggestive eyebrow wriggle]

    Taxpayers against the tax takers.

    I was under the impression it was Mitt Romney stirring that particular pot. I hadn’t even heard the term “takers” used in this sense until the 2012 Republican presidential campaign declared war on them.

    What were you saying? Sorry, I got distracted.

    Betcha Root is one of those libertarian types who’s amongst the first in line for any government handout he can get his hands on.

    Hell, if anything the state governor declared an implicit martial law by sending in troops. No one declares martial law nowadays. It’s a mere formality which they skip.

    Undoubtedly the wingnuts will claim it’s their continuous screeching about unlikely scenarios that prevents them from happening. Sort of a force field of faux outrage protects them from an imaginary future.

    The Karl Marx thing is a preemptive response to the publishing and best selling status of:

    “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” by Thomas Piketty

    http://www.amazon.com/Capital-Twenty-First-Century-Thomas-Piketty/dp/067443000X

    The mention of Karl Marx is right-wing shorthand for resistance and ridicule of a proposed course of action. You see the book seems to agree, broadly, with some of what Karl Marx said and then it goes on to advocate for a steep and highly progressive tax on the rich as the best answer to income inequality. This prescription tends to inflame right-wing passions so they want to get their digs in before the idea takes root.

    No, no, no, and no! President Obama set up Benghazi to distract us from Ferguson.
