The Garrow Grift Reveals Itself

As Jim Garrow has made the rounds of the right wing fever swamps selling tall tales of Obama nuking South Carolina and wiping out 281 million Americans (why so specifc? No idea), I’ve wondered how he’s going to make money from it. Now we know. On Erik Rush’s radio show, he told listeners to send him $3 million to build a radio station to broadcast his bizarre claims.

Oh, and he and Rush fantasized about hanging President Obama for treason:

“They sold us out for the mess of pottage and the twenty-one pieces of silver and in the end we should be able to hang them,” Garrow said. “I say that for Right Wing Watch, because they’re going to now say that we’re asking that we now hang the people who are our representatives in the House and the Senate. Well, yeah! There should be some way for us to pay them back for treason.”

Rush concurred: “That’s what you do with people who commit treason, isn’t it.” He also suggested that leaders be executed by firing squad.

“You’re supposed to hang them,” Garrow continued, and reiterated his new conspiracy theory that Obamacare will lead to guillotine/Sharia law executions.

They were probably fondling themselves while talking about it.

    So is he for or against executing people?

    I dunno. Sounded pretty mutual to me.

    Wasn’t it thirty pieces of silver? Or is the bible written in base-7 and I just didn’t notice?

    Probably because he reckons (I think, correctly) that such a specific number is more believable to a lot of people. A rounded number would be dismissed a little bit quicker as “just a wild estimate”. A specific number carries the suggestion of being precisely measured.

    For those who didn’t listen to the clip, he needs the money to buy two large ships to broadcast from “100 yards over the boarder in Lake Erie and Lake Superior”.

    Maybe he could just borrow Ken Ham’s arc?

    So he’d be on Canadian territory? The Canadians are gonna love that. (sarcasm)

    281 million Americans (why so specifc? No idea)

    It’s very close to 90% of the US population in 2012 (the figure given by Google when searching for “US population”, at 313.9m). The whole “elites plan to wipe out 90% of the global population” idea is boilerplate Bircher nutcasery.

    “The Garrow Grift”; I like the sound of it. It nicely bookends, with a companion, “The Gish Gallop”. the entire ReiKKKwing ouvre of dumbfuckery.

    @6&7:

    Yeah, I was also thinking, “He wants to do this in Canada? Don’t they actually HAVE laws against hate speech?

    In all seriousness, Garrow has to be delusional, he is literally living in a fantasy constructed by his own mind. Legally, there’s no difference in broadcasting from a ship in Canadian waters and broadcasting from a building on Canadian soil. The point in broadcasting from a ship is that you can do it from *international* waters.

    His mind has just latched onto a concept of pirate radio and shoe-horned it to fit into his constructed reality. Most of the other right wing nuts frequently quoted in Dispatches are generally either lying their arses off or badly confused about the world. But Garrow is simply insane. I’d compare him to David Mabius.

    Mike.

    I wonder if, in that reality, he has only one record to play: “A Walk Through the Black Forest”?

    Mental illness was better back in my day. Now it’s wall to wall paranoia and conspiracy theories. Way back when, I spent time in Shivering Acres, and it packed with Jesuses and Napoleons.

    My recollection [citation needed] is that Garrow already lives in and operates from Canada. He may even be a native of that country.

    Ah, citation found! Guelph, Ontario.

    And why am I not surprised the story is about another scam?

    Maybe he will name his boat on Lake Superior the Edmund Fitzgerald II Have fun broadcasting in November.

    Garrow is a Canadian to start with.

    I’m surprised they even let him in the USA. He’s threatened to kill American politicians including Obama a few times.

    We wouldn’t let Moslem terrorists in on that basis. So why do we let xian terrorists in?

    by Ben Cohen – in 30 Google+ circlesDec 4, 2013 – He also believes President Obama might be part of a Satanic cult. … Jim Garrow on his podcast, Garrow and Rush agreed that Obama should be executed. … nuclear weapons at various American cities, killing most of the U.S. population. … violently overthrowing the government of the United States “by any …

    Garrow has said Obama should be executed and called for the violent overthrow of the US government.

    Imagine what we would do if his name was Osama al-Qarhow or some such. Probably be a drone strike with his name on it.

    Garrow’s 3 million bucks will probably be spent on one of those FM transmitters you can buy for 30 bucks to hear your MP3 player through your car radio. The rest of it will be spent on a yacht, drugs, and hookers. The CRTC, Canada’s radio broadcasting regulator, would never give him a license, and I bet he knows that.

    matty1, I’m guessing Garrow and Rush have no problem with executing people if it’s done by a “proper” Christian method like hanging. Chopping people’s heads off on the other hand is something Eh-rabs and those horrible, socialist Frenchies do.

    “Chopping people’s heads off on the other hand is something Eh-rabs and those horrible, socialist Frenchies do.

    Well, they’ll be okay with it as soon as someone reminds them that they had “headsmen” during the middle ages in europe.

    Raven – “Garrow has said Obama should be executed and called for the violent overthrow of the US government.”

    So Mr Rush and Mr Garrow will be forming a circular firing squad really, really soon now, right?
