Soldiers allegedly plotted to kill Obama, oust government (credibility Zero)
The Hill ^ | 08/27/12 04:08 PM ET | Jeremy Herb

Posted on 08/27/2012 9:07:48 PM PDT by Texas Fossil

Army soldiers formed a militia group in Georgia that plotted to overthrow the U.S. government — and they killed a fellow soldier and his girlfriend to keep the plot secret, prosecutors alleged Monday, according to the Associated Press.

Prosecutors in the Long County, Ga., case say that the militia group planned to overtake the nearby Fort Stewart, to bomb a dam in Washington state and poison the state’s apple crop and ultimately overthrow the government and assassinate the president, according to reports.

Read paragraph 2 and tell me this is not a BS Article.

This sounds like something out of the Homeland Security terrorist senario. Idiots.

Note:

Those who assassinate people don’t plan nonsense like this, they just do it.

No apparently that was the plan. One guy has already accepted a plea to cooperate in return for having his sentence reduced to a double count of manslaughter.

The Right Wing Militia Meme® is being trotted out rather frequently as of late.

I suppose they think we'll buy their BS this time.

Hey dunderheads, it didn't work with Waco/OKC, it won't work this time.

Remember the Montana Militia scenario?

Think that on steroids if you try it again.

***Army soldiers formed a militia group in Georgia that plotted to overthrow the U.S. government***

I’ve noticed in the past that these so-called militia groups constantly telegraph their moves to the various Justice Departments.

Sounds more like braggadosio.

Regardless of what they say. The things they planned are not credible.

And people who are assassins simply do it. They do not talk about it.

In 2008, when Democrats from Austin Texas and elsewhere descended on the RNC/GOP Convention with plans to firebomb the convention and kidnap delegates, it got ZERO national press. Even when they were subsequently convicted of there crimes it only got coverage in the local communities.

PS. reportedly at least some members of today’s group had anarchist symbols tattooed on their flesh.

Makes zero sense.
What is the political payback by poisoning a bunch of apples? None.
And as far as the dams go, the state is ALREADY dismantling some of the dams on the Olympic peninsula, so they’d just be saving the state some cash!

There’s way more to this story than they are saying...

This is starting to sound eerily familiar..

Won't be the first time that a Democrat president ordered his DOJ to prosecute his critics

-- and yes it was a Democrat president. Yes it was W.W.II but those charged were long-time, pre-war FDR critics and anti-communists. To try to insure conviction and stir up public opinion against the accused the FDR DOJ included known Nazi sympathizers, totally unrelated to the FDR critics, in the group charged.

Here's just one account of The Great Sedition Trial of 1944

The current administration of Marxist-Alinsky radicals (psycho spoiled brats actually) are just looking for the excuse.. it's taken them decades to get this far and they ain't quitting without fighting.

Instead of Nazi sympathizers it's white supremacists. Instead of sedition it's war-related psychological illnesses or even plotting to overthrow the government.

And yes they go after the little people first.. then they go after the elite. FDR could go after Senator Taft and other prominent critics until enough little people had been disposed of.. fortunately the courts put an end to the madness after a few months.

"First, we're gonna take over Fort Stewart."

"Yeah! Uh Huh!"

"Then, we'll bomb a dam in Washington State."

"Damn betcha!"

"Then, we're gonna poison the apple orchards up in Washington."

"That'll get 'em!"

And, finally, we're gonna move on Washington D.C., assassinate the president and take over the government."

"Uh huh, man, uh huh! Gimme s'more of that weed."

the militia group planned to...poison [Washington] state’s apple crop

Poison the fruit, the trees, or both? How would they accomplish that" Washington produces abut two million tons of apples--that's a lot of apples, so they're taking on a big job.

Another outstandingly excellent wording of an article.

I guess Army Soldiers forming a militia(?) is a better statement than Navy Soldiers forming a militia?

Sounds like something someone would come up with in order to mask a real plan...

And so it begins. The sensationalized “threats” to make otherwise law abiding citizens look like a threat. Trying to help hussein look tough, embattled, maybe even give him cover to take action. They want to make ex soldiers look bad, and by extension current soldiers. They want people who speak of liberty, limited government, patriotism, and the like to seem like extremists. We are being marginalized as a precursor to action being taken against us.
