and abortionists and homosexuals and promiscuity in general. At least, if Rick Wiles can be believed. (News flash: he can’t.)
He’s a talk show host for something called Trunews and has become convinced that Ebola will cleanse the earth and Obama will deliberately spread the virus so he has an excuse to declare martial law on the country.
He believes that this is the opportunity the president has been looking for in order to throw people into FEMA camps.
“If Ebola becomes a global plague, you better make sure the blood of Jesus is upon you, you better make sure you have been marked by the angels so that you are protected by God,” Wiles ranted. “If not, you may be a candidate to meet the Grim Reaper.”
I look to Rationalwiki for a description of this FEMA camp idea. I’m out of the loop.
FEMA concentration camps exist in the mind of a particularly loopy bunch of conspiracy theorists who believe that mass internment facilities have been built across the continental United States by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, in preparation for a future declaration of martial law.
The theory’s proponents don’t express a lot of worry about the Centers for Disease Control, which actually does have the power to intern large numbers of citizens pretty much immediately as needed.
So I guess his thinking goes as follows: Unleash the Ebola on all the people Wiles doesn’t like (how does Obama know who to hit with it?) and then the CDC will react and quarantine all the people Wiles doesn’t like who are now afflicted and this will give Obama a reason to declare martial law and somehow save all the people Wiles does like…
Can Obama declare martial law? I don’t know how far down the rabbit hole I want to be going here… Now The End Begins and America’s Freedom Fighters give a bit of a look into where this kind of thinking can lead.
Nowhere I’m mentally equipped to go, that’s for damned sure. These topics are better left to better, more educated bloggers and proper journalists.
