“New Civil War” Conspiracy Spreads
It’s time to unlock the gun cabinet and round up the wife and kids, because the U.N. is coming to town, according to a new conspiracy theory. County Judge Tom Head of Lubbock, Texas, has urged his fellow citizens to prepare for a “Lexington / Concord” civil war if Obama is re-elected in November.
The wacky Judge says Obama will “try to give the sovereignty of the United States away to the United Nations” and if the good people of Texas attempt to rise up against international oppression, Obama will “call in the U.N. troops, personnel carriers, tanks and whatever.”
If that happens, Head has vowed to personally stand “in front of their personnel carriers and say, ‘You’re not coming in here,’” but he wouldn’t mind having “two or three hundred deputies” with him. He even conceded that if the fighting gets hot enough “We may have to call out the militia.” He intends to fund this militia with a 1.7% tax increase in Lubbock County during the next fiscal year…
Lubbock County personnel have responded to Judge Head’s statements with embarrassed denials. One local attorney publicly stated that “Lubbock is going to be the laughingstock of the entire nation.” Kenny Ketner, Lubbock County’s Democratic party chief, called Head a “crazy county judge” and asked him to resign.
Judge Head, however, refuses to resign and has the vocal support of a small portion of Lubbock’s population. Do those Texans know something we don’t?
Apparently, the U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s spokesman, Martin Nesirky, thought the threat from Lubbock serious enough to address at a press conference. When asked about the U.N.’s imminent invasion of Texas, Nesirky replied, “It’s absolutely ridiculous.”
Could such a vehement denial from someone so highly placed in the U.N. hierarchy be no more than a smoke screen for an already unfolding plot of world domination? If the U.N. had no plans to invade the Lone Star State, why would they even deign address the seemingly crazy accusations? We’ll just have to wait and see how the 2012 election unfolds.
