Gheen’s Bizarre Obama Conspiracy Theories

William Gheen, the virulently racist head of the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, has a theory on how Obama is planning to help Democrats win this year’s midterm elections that is, to say the least, absolutely bizarre. First, he thinks he’s having Mexico stop Central American immigrants from reaching the border, but only temporarily:

He said Obama is going “deep underground” with unmarked vans transporting illegals into the interior of the country. The administration has enlisted the help of various progressive groups, paying nonprofits, faith-based charities and private individuals to resettle the unaccompanied minor children in cities across the U.S.

“These individuals and groups can receive up to $10,000 a month to provide housing facilities and other aid,” Gheen said. “Obama has gone into full stealth mode.”

The government of Mexico is on board, helping to shield the operation, Gheen said, citing recent articles, including one by the Associated Press, that explain how Mexico is cracking down on undocumented Central Americans heading to its border with the U.S.

Mexico has also set up moving roadblocks, checking the documents of passengers on interstate buses.

“Mexico, also a partner in the planned North America Union, has taken steps to stem the flow of illegals until after the election,” Gheen said. “They’ve cleared the Beast (freight train) of illegals. They’re aware of the backlash and they’re trying to turn off that flow for now, until we get past the election.”

So a few thousand immigrants a month coming into the country is so bad for the Democrats politically that he’s enlisted Mexico to turn off the valve for a few months. But a terrorist attack on Obama’s watch would apparently be great for Democrats, so he’s trying to help ISIS attack the United States:

Gheen believes the news about the ISIS terrorist group’s atrocities in the Middle East also helps Obama and the congressional incumbents.

“If you look at history, the unfortunate result of terrorist threats and attacks has been to favor incumbents in Washington,” he said. “The American public’s prior reactions to terror threats and acts has been to support incumbents. There is a psychological theory that when citizens feel threatened they will instinctively cling to the devil they know, to the people in power that are familiar to them.

“Which means the Obama administration now has a political incentive for ISIS to threaten or actually carry out attacks because the precedent is that the people will reward you with more power and more money, which is what we did after 9/11, so when I see all this publicity of ISIS chopping off heads, I see it as political theater, I see it as psychological operations and attempts to manipulate the American public in the mid-term election cycle. It benefits all incumbents but because the Democrats control the Senate and White House it benefits them the most.”

That’s simply delusional. Terrorist attacks push the population to the right and a terrorist attack before November would be terrible for the Democrats politically. This is the kind of “thinking” that can only be offered in the right wing fever swamps without provoking nothing but laughter.

    There are 233 Republicans and 199 Democrats in the current House. Dude can’t even count right.

    Ack, my mistake, I first read that as the House, not the White House. Because leaving out the House is stupid, as is including the White House (since its not up for grabs). In any event, its a highly skewed look at the mid-term elections.

    A little OT, but…

    About a year, or so, ago we all chortled about the Rethugs shooting themselves in the foot in response to the 2012 election. And certainly, there was good evidence in support of that proposition. Now, however, the party of stupid is poised to win the Senate.

    I can’t seem to stop the rhetorical question endlessly looping in my head: Are the American people really that stupid?

    Ack! Wrong thread. Sorry!

    @3: the answer to your question is “yes”.

  • grumpyoldfart

    Gheen is right. I was in on the planning so I know.

    Oh good grief!

    Not everything in the world is about you, your country, and its petty political squabbles, you parochial shitstain. To think that thousands of Syrians, Iraqis and Kurds (along with hundreds of Islamists on demented gap-years from other countries) are slaughtering, and/or being slaughtered, purely for the benefit of one or other of the two barely distinguishable US political parties is so offensively self-centred I don’t even have the words.

    “Political theatre”? Fuck you you monstrous piece of desiccated dung.
