The Wingnuts have jumped the shark for what seems like the 1000th time this year.
This time there is a new conspiracy theory in the works and it's a beaut!
Ok, here it is... President Barack Obama is planning to stage a fake assassination attempt in an effort to stop the 2012 election from happening.
Just yesterday Rep. Kelly Keisling (R-Byrdstown) sent an email from his state email account to constituents making this astounding claim.
How would an assassination attempt stop the elections you ask. The email hypothesizes that the assassination attempt on the president would be blamed on "white supremisists" and used to enrage black and Hispanic communities leading to civil unrest (rioting) which would ultimately lead to the imposition of "martial law". This would in turn delay the election.
How the hell did Keisling get the blockbuster info you ask... Well here's how...The "theory" apparently got started with, what else, a conservative bloggers fertile imagination. First an article was written by Doug Hammon and posted on the conservative website CanadaFreePress.com. In the article Hammon said this idea came about after he claimed to have conversations with an informant within the Department of Homeland Security. From there a Florida based blogger named Joe Angione took the notion and ran with it. His notion was then posted on The Constitution Party of Florida's website where it then made it rounds to Rep. Keisling and here we are.
Yes.... Once again here we are.
By the way the original article was forwarded to Keisling for an unknown constituent named Ruby In her email to she says: "PLEASE SCROLL DOWN,"... "Something to think and PRAY about. Interesting times...Blessings, Ruby."
If anyone knows how I can thank Ruby for this invaluable information she has seen fit to bless us with please let me know.
