Texas, Chuck Norris wants you all to stay paranoid about the United States military your taxpayer dollars support. I guess we only support the troops when the troops are in other countries. When they're here, be so very afraid.
Actor Chuck Norris, who has become a prominent conservative activist, published a column on the conspiracy theory website WND that told readers not to trust what the federal government has been saying about a military training exercise known as Jade Helm 15.
Some conspiracy theorists have warned that the exercise, which is set to take place later this year in Texas and six other western states, may lead to a covert takeover of some of those states. Last week, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) ordered the State Guard to monitor the operation.
"The U.S. government says, 'It’s just a training exercise.' But I’m not sure the term 'just' has any reference to reality when the government uses it," Norris wrote in his column. "Whatever Jade Helm 15 actually is, I think it is more than coincidental that the FBI director just confessed in February that the presence of ISIS can be felt in all 50 states of the U.S. and that the Pentagon is suddenly running its biggest military training exercise with every branch of the military across seven Southwestern states."
Which is it, then? Is Chuck worried about the presence of ISIS in all 50 states, or is he worried about the scary government takeover of Texas? Which scares him more? ISIS or our own military.
He tried to split the baby:
"Concerned Texans and Americans are in no way calling into question our brave and courageous men and women in uniform," Norris wrote. "They are merely following orders. What’s under question are those who are pulling the strings at the top of Jade Helm 15 back in Washington."
If I knew the military was trying to take over Texas for a fact, I'd be in the streets yelling for them to get the hell out of there. I don't want responsibility for them!
