The Russians Are Coming! ‘Patriot’ Paranoia Run Amok
So says the trailer for “Red Dawn,” a Cold War-era movie about a group of American teenagers who resist a Russian invasion, calling themselves Wolverines. Now, some 28 years after the film was released, the antigovernment “Patriot” crowd is having a bad case of deja vu.
This week, Oath Keepers has begun warning that a joint U.S.-Russian training exercise scheduled next month at Fort Carson, Colo., is undeniable proof that the “New World Order” is real and that the federal government is working hand-in-glove with the Russians to usher in a regime of global tyranny.
“Still don’t believe that a one-world government is planning to enforce a military-police state in America? Still have doubts about this Federal government’s planned martial law? … Still prefer the comfort of denial to the alarming danger of what is now confronting the US of A? This may help nay-sayers smell the coffee brewing,” the Oath Keepers warned, linking to an article posted by Business Insider, a U.S.-based news website, announcing the military exercise.
