OMG! The UN is Taking Over Michigan!

The paranoid far right in Michigan — we have a whole lot of those types — is abuzz with breathless tales of vehicles allegedly belonging to the United Nations being driven to an army air base in Grayling “using secondary roads and traveling only at night.”

Using secondary roads and traveling only at night, truckers from more than a dozen four truck convoys have made their way from the west coast to Camp Grayling in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula where they unloaded their cargo: More than 100 Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles – MRAPs.

This information was first brought to the attention of The Truth Is Viral by a high-ranking officer in Michigan’s Law Enforcement community., so its provenance is impeccable. This officer introduced TTiV Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Bobby Powell to a truck driver, a mutual friend, with direct knowledge of these convoys. According to the truck driver interviewed in this episode of The Truth Is Viral, the MRAPs delivered to Camp Grayling – long suspected of being a major FEMA camp – were clearly marked with United Nations insignia.

The truck driver says that these MRAPs are parked in a gravel parking lot on the southeast side of Camp Grayling along a secondary road, and not on the base itself.

ZOMG! The UN is taking over! FEMA concentration camps! For the paranoid right, every day is Groundhog Day. The UN has been on the verge of taking over the United States from the day it was created. Remember those infamous road signs that supposedly had markings on the back to show the UN troops (of which they have none, by the way) where to go when they took over? And those Chinese troops massing on the Mexican border? That their dystopic predictions never actually come true is always lost on them. We’ve always been at war with Oceania — and the UN.

    Before you make fun of people get your facts straight. The Chinese troops are on the Canadian border and South American communist posing as Mexican truck drivers and coming in under NAFTA are on the southern border.

    “its provenance is impeccable”

    Lets see – an unnamed cop introduced a paranoid loonie to an unnamed truck driver with no documented connection to anything who says its true…

    Is Glenn Beck somewhere in that list?

  3. raven says

    It’s UN Agenda 21.

    There are a lot of them in Colorado for some reason.

    We have a few around here on the west coast. They belong to the John Birch society.

    Plus the 50 million Moslems brought in by Obama that are being stored in our national forests.

    It’s not true. Its the Council on Foreign Relations using UN insignia as a cover for their nefarious plot to overthrow the US Government.

    You’re all being ridiculous. They’re the Obamacare Army. I heard from a guy who knows a guy who saw them moving their belongings, in a convoy of panel vans. Death Panel vans.

    Modusoperandi: I think my mother’s brother’s second cousin once shook hands with a guy that accidentally caught a glimpse of that guy in his rear-view mirror! Small world!

  7. dingojack says

    I wonder if they might be headed for CAR or South Somalia or somewhere = or is that too sensible?

    Ed = ” That their dystopic predictions never actually come true is always lost on them”.
    I read that the first time as ‘their dyspeptic predictions’, ‘we’re gunna need a bigger alka-seltzer‘ methinks.

    I hear all these ‘sources’ are mysteriously related to Kevin Bacon. Coincidence or conspiracy – you decide!!

    Dingo.

    I happen to live about 15 miles north of Camp Grayling. I also sell real estate around that area, I know it well. Of course there are no FEMA Camps there.

    I unfortunately know people who are writing letters to our Tea-Bagging U.S. Representative Dan Benishek about this “threat”. Rep. Benishek’s effectively ignoring them with a boilerplate letter written by some lowly aide is illustrative on why we see extreme right politicians get primaried for even further-right politicians. Not that Mr. Benishek’s getting primaried this year, I’m just pointing out an example of why this happens.

    The GOP is opening itself up to eventually becoming the home for Alex Jones’ disciples.

    Let’s start with what we know. The gays have a stranglehold on the government in Lancing. The cult of Amway has it tendrils throughout Grand Rapids, controlling the state’s major transportation hub. And the Muslim terrorists, now using economic tactics, have done their part by bankrupting Detroit. So Michigan’s major power centers have already been neutralized before anyone is even aware the attack has begun.

    Now enter the CIA. With their well documented super secret earthquake weapon they will wreak devastation on a scale never before seen in the United States. To all the world the FEMA fascists will look like humanitarians riding to the rescue. With their targets already identified by the NSA, they’ll have the perfect cover for rounding up the biggest threat to Obama’s plans for establishing an American caliphate, the heroes of the Michigan militias. Wake up people. The war has already started. If you’re not with us it may already be too late.

    Michael Heath “Of course there are no FEMA Camps there.”
    Of course you’d say that.

    “The GOP is opening itself up to eventually becoming the home for Alex Jones’ disciples.”
    “Opening”?

  11. Abby Normal says

    I have no idea why the word “weapon” appears at the end of my post. A bug in the NSA tracking sorfware perhaps? If you don’t hear from me again you’ll know they got me. Keep the message going!

  12. Abby Normal says

    At least they an anonymous commenter to set them straight:

    MARTIAL Law. Please get the spelling right if you want to be taken seriously.

    And now my coworkers want to know why I’m laughing so hard.

    Fear naught, Mr Ed. We’ve seen those Chinese troops on the Canadian border and we’re prepared to repel any that try to enter Canada.

  14. jameshanley says

    The way Michigan’s run for the past decade and more, even a libertarian like me is kinda open to the idea of the UN taking over responsibility for this pisshole state.

    Well, in this scenario, Rand Paul is John the Baptist and Alex Jones is Jesus Christ. So we still need some bloodletting before the crazy really kicks in within establishment Republicans.

    “these MRAPs are parked in a gravel parking lot on the southeast side of Camp Grayling along a secondary road, and not on the base itself.”

    So has anyone bothered to take a drive down that secondary road outside the base to confirm that there actually is a parking lot full of marked vehicles? I guess that when you are publishing a blog from your mom’s basement and don’t have a car it’s kind of hard to do your due diligence as a reporter.

  17. Kimpatsu says

    <i> According to the truck driver interviewed in this episode of The Truth Is Viral, the MRAPs delivered to Camp Grayling… were clearly marked with United Nations insignia.</i>
    So this is a secret convey travelling only by back roads at night… but the vehicles are clearly marked with the UN logo? WTF?

    You forgot the Muslim takeover of Dearborn. Poor ol’ Orville Hubbard must be rolling in his grave.

    I remember in the late 90s when some crazies posted pictures of what they called ‘tanks’ – they were Howitzers – on train cars in Vancouver WA. As I lived in Vancouver at the time, and recognized where the tracks were, the picture appeared to be taken from I-5, not exactly hidden, I realized they were vehicles on their way to the Yakima Firing Center for training. I had loaded vehicles on train cars to go to YFC while I was stationed on Fort Lewis. When I tried to point this out to those who had posted the picture I was shouted down by the many crazies who preferred to believe their own army was doing something sinister, over the Units going to train where they could maneuver.

    I was once an army reservist in Canada, and we used to cross the border from time to time for exercises at Fort Custer or yes, Grayling. One time when we stopped at U.S. Customs, an officer on the bus came up to speak with the border agent, told them the name of our unit and where we were going on exercise.

    The agent leaned in, looked into the bus full of uniformed people, furrowed her brow a little, and asked “Is this a church group?”

  24. Ichthyic says

    Well, in this scenario, Rand Paul is John the Baptist and Alex Jones is Jesus Christ.

    wait, so as part of that, do we get to crucify Jones and toss him in a hole with a big rock in front of it?

  25. blf says

    Why is it that these anonymous sources never seem to own a fucking cell phone camera?

    Because they are so bad at “PhotoShopping” that even the other paranoid delusionalists can tell the photographs are fake.

    @8: I’m glad I’m not the only one putting up with Benishek. He’s a doctor, you know, so he understands science. That’s why climate change isn’t real.

    Ironically, the Koch brothers are funding a heavily run ad (prior to the holidays) where Rep. Benishek makes a fallacious ‘argument from authority’ against Obamacare. I’m supremely confident he would flunk introductions to both macro- and microeconomics.
