Garrow: ‘Mentally Ill’ Obama Will Impose Martial Law

Jim Garrow, the obvious fraud who claims that Obama tried to drop nuclear weapons on South Carolina last year, has been making the rounds of the far-right fever swamps, peddling his nonsense to wingnuts and conspiracy mavens who will believe absolutely anything if it makes Obama look bad. He told Paul Preston, an Agenda 21 conspiracy nut, that Obama is borderline mentally ill and about to impose martial law.

Garrow: I see him as being a fifth column, that body or group of people that come in and their whole idea is to wreak havoc everywhere they turn. Obviously, that’s exactly what’s happened with everything this president is doing. He’s wreaking havoc, destroying the constitution and the rule of law. He has to be stopped.

Preston: Do you think the prospect of martial law in America is a real prospect?

Garrow: Yes it is. That’s what a spoiled brat, a petulant child will do: throw tantrums. They’ll always go and the pendulum will swing all the way in another direction with them, there’s no common ground, there’s no stability and that’s what we see with this man, he’s not a stable person, psychologically stable or whatever. I believe he is on the edge of being mentally ill.

And what would a wingnut rant be without Godwin?

Preston: What is his end game then here with the United States? To destroy it as much as possible in his time? To totally destroy it? To bring in a police state? We’re seeing the militarization of our regular police all over the place, is that his end game? To literally take over the United States almost Nazi style?

Garrow: It’s all of the above, I’ve got to agree with everything you have said right there.

It occurs to me that the internet is a very useful tool against the far right paranoids, both because we can expose the bizarre things they claim now but because it will be very easy down the line to point out the false predictions they made before. In January, 2017, when Obama leaves office peacefully having never nuked the country, imposed natural law, rounded up Christians into FEMA camps or any of the other ridiculous things they continually say he’s going to do, those false predictions will be preserved for all to see.

    those false predictions will be preserved for all to see.

    And absolutely nobody will care.

    One thing I’ve never seen explained is, why the fuck would Obama want to destroy America? Because he’s unhinged? That’s the best they can do?

    I wish I was a chameleon. I am physically incapable of rolling my eyes hard enough.

    Yes but they think the moral is ‘shepherds should have more guns’.

    What cracks me up is that Garrow is a Canadian who seems never to have lived in the United States, but Americans like Preston ask him in all seriousness for his opinion on what secret things Obama is up to. How can they not see that Garrow has no inside knowledge whatsoever about Obama or the activities of the US government?

    Is it because of Garrow’s claims to have been a CIA agent? Again, Garrow is a Canadian. The CIA doesn’t employ non-US citizens, except to the extent that it pays money to all sorts of people for information and we call those paid informants ‘CIA Agents’. But there is no reason to believe that Garrow did even that. Even if he had been a paid informant, no one in the CIA would be giving Jim Garrow inside information about the machinations of Obama.

    How is it that none of these nutjobs notices these problems with Garrow’s credentials? As a Canadian it seems to me what is going on here is that Garrow’s brand of lunacy can’t get any traction in Canada, so he’s shopped out his paranoia to the US Tea-party movement and they have welcomed him into the fold with open arms. For an organization that is so paranoid about what the US government is out to do to them, they sure do have about the lowest vetting standards possible for their members. More and more it looks to me like Dale Gribble was drawn true to life.

    He would have gotten away with it, if it wasn’t for those meddling wingnuts!

    Obama never imposed natural law? Why, the fiend!

    (I don’t know why I do this — as best I can tell, Ed never fixes typos or blockquote fails or anything else in his postings; I just feel ornery today.)

    Who knew that Obama’s been in power for decades?

    He hates America and Freedom and America. Obviously.

    They’ll simply claim to have prevented it.

    Anyone who is one of them, and/or is not doing everything the wingnuts want, and/or is doing anything the wingnuts don’t want, is obviously dedicated to destroying USAlienstan.

    What, you expect them to ask for his long-form birth certificate? That would be ridiculous!

    I know you don’t want to call people mentally ill based on their viewpoints, Ed, but if anyone within spitting distance of these kind of rants is mentally ill …

    We can be kind and not call Mr. Garrow “mentally ill,” but it is very clear that his connection to reality is tenuous at best.

    Garrow hit it with his comment “It’s all of the above.” Obama wants to totally destroy America (with nukes), then take over the desolate radioactive wasteland almost Nazi style.

    Obviously because he’s a mad fucking genius. That’s what they do! Have you never watched “Pinky and the Brain”? It’s textbook! Sheesh!

    Appropriately, I just got a banner ad asking “Is Obama the worst president in history?”

    Irony is that they are so very often projecting their own wishes and methods onto Obama. In a single week I have heard that Obama will impose martial law, and that a military coup and martial law are the only way to save the nation from Obama.

    Sometimes I think it is all just a simple approach/avoidance conflict. I really think they are really just talking themselves into either backing away from the cliff, or jumping. At first, a very long time ago, it was all just an act to freak people out. But after the umpteenth time threatening to jump most sane people figure they have wasted enough time and attention without any conclusion. So we all went back to work figuring either way would hear about how it played out on the six o-clock news.

    So now the crowds have all gone away and it is getting cold up on that ledge. It is jump or walk away.

    @24:

    And there are folks like me, with my nice sammich and a bullhorn, shouting, “Jump, you worthless scumbag, JUMP!”.

    I doubt that Garrow’s disconnected from the reality of a nice bank account, fattened by the credulous boobs that swallow his load.

    I don’t think he’s “crazy”, he’s just another lying, fucking sociopathic piece-of-shit, y’now, a teabagger.
