There's something the South Florida-based wing of the Constitution Party would like you to know: There is a very real danger that President Barack Obama is going to stage a "false flag" assassination attempt to incide rioting, which will allow him to install martial law and postpone the November elections.
THIS IS REAL AND A BIG PROBLEM, YOU GUYS.
You can tell it is real because of the second paragraph of the article that Florida Chairman Mark Pilling posted:
What I'm going to report here is only a rumor that presently can't be confirmed. But it is of such magnitude that it must be made known if only to prepare America for a possible terrible eventuality. And while it has not been confirmed, neither can it authoritatively and convincingly be denied, certainly not in a United States where our Constitutional rights are under constant attack.Summary: Someone told me something that sounds just awful. There is no evidence, but it seems like something that could happen. Let's call it a theory. About a secret plan -- a conspiracy, if you will.
Oh! A conspiracy theory? A curious thing coming from the party that claims to be "Uniting All Americans, not just one side, based on Historical Truth."
The article was written by a guy named Joe Angione, who until 2010 was a columnist at a paper in central Florida. Now, he does his own thing, a thing that includes writing about this weird rumor of Obama taking over the country.
"This rumor involves an agent of the Department of Homeland Security who allegedly informed a reporter at the Canada Free Press of a 'false flag' or faked event to be initiated by Obama administration operatives in the hope of preventing the November presidential elections," he wrote.
If you are wondering, the Canada Free Press is a conservative website that features headlines like "My Trip to the Liberal Zoo." There's also "BREAKING NEWS: Not All Idiots Are Democrats!" which starts by saying, "Which is NOT to say that Not all Democrats are idiots...because they are." The second sentence mixes up "who" and "whom."
If somebody from Homeland Security is trying to leak this, he has chosen the worst possible publication to do it with. Seriously. Is this leaker the only person in the federal government without David Sanger's phone number?
