AFA’s Buster Wilson: Is Obama preparing military to fire on US citizens?
No, Buster Wilson is preparing wingnuts to fire on Obama.
The American Family Association’s Buster Wilson yesterday warned that President Obama is on the brink of establishing a dictatorship. Reacting to the recent drone memo leak, Wilson strongly suggested that Obama may start killing conservatives and Christians who oppose his administration. He said the drone memo ‘scares me’ because the Department of Homeland Security considers conservative Christians to be potential terrorists. Wilson was referring to a DHS report [PDF], which he completely distorted, on violent racist and anti-government extremists.
Later, Wilson claimed to have heard three anecdotal reports that the military under Obama is requiring personnel to affirm their willingness to ‘fire on American citizens,’ including people resisting what Wilson believes is a looming gun ban.
Wilson also repeated his claim, which has been discredited time and time again, that Obama issued an executive order preparing the government to enforce martial law.
It should be noted that Buster Wilson is a member of the anti-government “patriot” group Oathkeepers. Read their “Declaration Of Orders We Will Not Obey”.
It should also be noted that the American Family Association has been designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center since November 2010. That is mainly for it’s history of anti-gay propaganda put forth by the likes of its founder Donald Wildmon, and more recently by Bryan Fischer, but anti-government conspiracy theories are yet another reason.
