Dumbest Man on the Internet Uses Crazy Oathkeepers Militia as Fear-Mongering Source
Written with his typical random use of bold markup and capitalization, Jim Hoft, fabled Dumbest Man on the Internet, is now using the Oathkeepers militia group as a source for his latest incredibly dim fear-mongering post: REPORT… TX Rancher: Terrorists on Wanted List Were Caught Crossing Into US (Video) | the Gateway Pundit.
In case you’re wondering how much credibility the Oathkeepers have as a source, they’re one of the most extreme right wing militia groups in the US, and one of many offshoots of the Patriot movement with numerous ties to white nationalist and xenophobic anti-immigrant groups. Their founder, Stewart Rhodes, believes Barack Obama is plotting to disarm American citizens and turn US cities into “giant concentration camps.” And their stated purpose is to be ready to fight in a revolution against the US government.
In a way this is a step up for the DMOTI; at least he isn’t citing overt white nationalists this time, just people with numerous ties to them.
