Never in the history of the United States has there been a military exercise on American soil… oh wait, yes there has. Lots of times. But right wingers led by the King of All Idiots, Alex Jones, are having a massive freak-out session about an upcoming Army training exercise dubbed “Jade Helm 15,” concocting wild swivel-eyed fantasies about IMMINENT MARTIAL LAW and SECRET PRISON CAMPS for TRUE PATRIOTS like them.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is one of these loons, obviously, and he ordered the Texas State Guard to “monitor” the exercise to make sure no TRUE PATRIOT RIGHTS would be violated by the evil US Army — leading White House spokesman Josh Earnest to say today, “I have no idea what he’s thinking.”
That’s because he’s not actually “thinking.”
This man is an idiotOn Tuesday, Gov. Greg Abbott announced that he has ordered the Texas State Guard to monitor the exercise, called Operation Jade Helm 15, to ensure that no Texans’ liberties or rights are infringed.
“I have no idea what he’s thinking,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest, when asked about Abbott’s move and the apparent mistrust behind it. “In no way will the constitutional rights or civil liberties of any American citizen be infringed upon while this exercise is being conducted.”
