Shocker: Jade Helm Watcher is a Violent, Bigoted Jerk

In the least surprising news of the week, former Marine Pete Lanteri, who organized a group of conspiracy nut “patriots” to keep a close eye on the Jade Helm 15 military exercises going on throughout the south right now, is a bigot who just loves the idea of killing people liberals and launching another civil war.

After it was revealed that he had attacked “libs” and, really weirdly, “conspiracy nuts” (what the hell is he if not a conspiracy nut?) as part of the “90% of useless fucking Americans” and that he “can’t wait to kill thousands of these fucks,” he went on the Alan Colmes show and said he’s just a “hothead” and that those are “rare examples.” Turns out, not so much:

A quick pass through Lanteri’s public Facebook page revealed that those posts were not rare examples, though. The “Counter Jade Helm” leader over the past several months has spouted off about everything from a “war on whites” to a fantasy about Fox News pundit Geraldo Rivera getting killed in last month’s massacre at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina.

A few examples:





So a racist “patriot” who fantasizes about murdering other people by the thousands. Anyone surprised?

    Look, nobody said being a Patriot was easy. It’s tough hating more people by eight a.m. than most people do all day, especially after staying up all night keeping an eye out for the contrails left by the lizard people. You get such a crick in the neck from that, let me tell you. Thank God I can get private healthcare coverage on a Public Exchange now, no thanks to Obama!

    The song in my head is now “Watcher of the Skies“. Thanks, Modusoperandi. Seriously, I didn’t know how i was going to drive out Bad Blood.

  • Modusoperandi

    Synfandel, don’t blame me. If I got a song stuck in your head it would be something tangential, possibly even orthogonal, like this.

    So, when do the “libtards” get to invoke the Bush doctrine and take out the Reich Wing Nutjobs before they can cause real harm?

    Sorry, wrong thread.

  • Who Cares

    I’m also a Jade Helm watcher.

  • magistramarla

    Yes, there are definitely morons like this living near me.

  • whheydt

    Sheesh… Good thing he’s a EX-Marine. They probably didn’t want him any more than the rest of us do.

  • freehand

    So… he’d like to just grab those teachers and liberals and hang ’em up, feet kicking, because they’re “anti-constitutional”?


    And Modus, you misspelled “chemtrails”.

    [looks suspiciously]

    Are you the real Modus?

    This morning CNN had a gun shop owner who was declaring his shop a “Muslim Free Zone”. On YouTube. Because he’s a “patriot”. While standing in front of a Confederate flag. The stupid runs deep in this country.

    I don’t mind it running deep, Trebuchet. But it would be nice if it ran silent.

    I can do better than that.

    Today at lunch there were a couple of young people in uniforms where we ate.

    I thought they were Boy Scouts or something but didn’t pay much attention.

    My friends did. They were also carrying big knives and wearing guns in holsters. Turns out they were white supremacists from some sort of paramilitary militia.

    If that gun shop owner can be sued for violating religious freedom. Discrimination on the basis of religion is, in fact, illegal.

  • raven

    White Supremacists are self refuting.

    Most of them have poor social skills, low education, aren’t very bright, and usually end up spending a lot of time in prison for pointless crimes. Their heroes are people like Dylann Roof or Wade Page, who never accomplished anything in life whatsoever but killing a lot of unarmed people in a church.

  • Modusoperandi

    freehand “And Modus, you misspelled ‘chemtrails’.”

    Now you’re just being ridiculous. It’s the other people who are spelling “contrails” wrongly.


    “[looks suspiciously] Are you the real Modus?”

    How can I not be? I gotta be me. Among myself I’m noted as the me of my generation.


    howardhershey “If that gun shop owner can be sued for violating religious freedom. Discrimination on the basis of religion is, in fact, illegal.”

    That’s okay. Islam isn’t a religion. It’s a social, judicial, and political system. Worse, their Ten Commandments only has Five Pillars!

  • grumpyoldfart

    Is Lanteri trying to coax people into his movement or is he telling people what they want to hear?

  • williamhumenansky

    I just want to say that Modusoperandi is one of the funniest people on this or any other blog! Great command of the language.
