Rep. Gohmert Wants Jade Helm Map Changed To Prevent Federal ‘War…Against Its Own States’
The Texas congressman is asking for changes to the Jade Helm military exercises planned for this summer in a paranoid op-ed piece:
This military practice has some concerned that the U.S. Army is preparing for modern-day martial law.
Certainly, I can understand these concerns.
When leaders within the current administration believe that major threats to the country include those who support the Constitution, are military veterans, or even “cling to guns or religion,” patriotic Americans have reason to be concerned.
We have seen people working in this administration use their government positions to persecute people with conservative beliefs in God, country, and notions such as honor and self-reliance.
Because of the contempt and antipathy for the true patriots or even Christian saints persecuted for their Christian beliefs, it is no surprise that those who have experienced or noticed such persecution are legitimately suspicious…
Once I observed the map depicting “hostile,” “permissive” and “uncertain” states and locations, I was rather appalled that the hostile areas amazingly have a Republican majority and believe in the sanctity of the United States Constitution.
When the federal government begins, even in practice, games or exercises, to consider any U.S. city or state in “hostile” control and trying to retake it, the message becomes extremely calloused and suspicious…
The map of the exercise needs to change, the names on the map need to change, and the tone of the exercise needs to be completely revamped so the federal government is not intentionally practicing war against its own states.
