Globalists favorite newspaper attempts to silence Jade Helm critics
By Alex Thomas
(INTELLIHUB) — In yet another disgusting hit piece targeting critics of Jade Helm 2015, the Washington Post has published an article that claims fears over the massive urban military training exercise are based on President Obama’s race.
The article, published on July 4th, reads like a military press release while strongly implying that those worried about Jade Helm being a possible martial law takeover are simply racist hicks.
Written by Kevin Sullavan, the piece focuses on Bastrop, Texas where citizens have expressed their worry over Jade Helm to the point that a member of US Special Forces was invited to “answer” questions about the massive exercise.
After quoting county Chairman Albert Ellison saying that its not nuts and wackos who are worried about Jade Helm, Sullavan then goes on to imply (and have those he interviewed directly say) that most of the fears are actually full of racist undertones.
Here in the soft, green farmlands east of Austin, some say the answer is simple: “The truth is, this stems a fair amount from the fact that we have a black president,” said Terry Orr, who was Bastrop’s mayor from 2008 to 2014.
Orr said he strongly disagrees with those views, and he supports Jade Helm. But he said a significant number of people in town distrust Obama because they think he is primarily concerned with the welfare of blacks and “illegal aliens.”
“People think the government is just not on the side of the white guy,” Orr said.
Bastrop’s current mayor, Kenneth Kesselus, who also supports Jade Helm, agrees. Kesselus said the distrust is due in part to a sense that “things aren’t as good as they used to be,” especially economically. “The middle class is getting squeezed and they’ve got to take it out on somebody, and Obama is a great target.”
Unbelievably, the disgusting (and transparently pathetic) article only gets worse after Sullavan turns to City Council member and Democrat Dock Jackson who in turn decides to repeat hard left talking points that are used on a variety of issues, this time being Jade Helm.
Dock Jackson, 62, an African American who has been on the Bastrop City Council for 24 years, grew up when the town was still segregated, literally by railroad tracks. Today, Bastrop is 34 percent Hispanic and 8 percent black, and a wonderful place to live, he said, a place where the races generally get along.
But the Jade Helm backlash has been a “red flag” that our county “still has a lot of things they need to come to terms with,” Jackson said, including the anger and disrespect being directed at the president.
At a recent family reunion at a Bastrop community center, Mark Peterson, who is black, said he has been “shocked” by what he views as racist undertones in much of the objection to Jade Helm.
“What I hate to hear most is, ‘We want to take our country back.’ This is still your country. Where did it go?” said Peterson, 42, a technology manager for a financial firm in Austin. “If it were any other president but Obama, it would not be an issue.”
To put this hit piece in perspective one has to sit back and remember what has actually gone on in the last three months.
We are literally seeing dozens of urban military exercises with a strong domestic focus being conducted across the country in the lead up to Jade Helm and instead of investigating this fact, one of the biggest news outlets in the country has decided to instead imply that all the Americans worried about the training are racist.
Unfortunately for Kevin Sullavan and the Washington Post, the alternative media has and will continue to report the truth about Jade Helm 2015 and the overall increased urban military training throughout the country regardless whether or not we are labeled racist by globalist and war on drugs shills in the corporate media.
Another unfortunate fact for the corporate media and the powers that be is that literally hundreds of thousands of Americans already know that not only are Americans in rural Texas worried about Jade Helm but so are those living throughout the country as well as those within the Pentagon itself.
This fact is so important that articles like the hit piece in the Washington Post are being written on a seemingly daily basis to distract the American people from learning about and spreading it.
In early June, the Washington Times broke the mainstream silence on the truth surrounding the use of the military against the American people by quoting an official IN the Pentagon who voiced his or her concern.
Speaking about a DoD Directive that was updated by President Obama, the official made it clear that there are those within the Pentagon who share the very same fears as hundreds of thousands of Americans and those fears have absolutely nothing to do with race.
“This appears to be the latest step in the administration’s decision to use force within the United States against its citizens,” a defense official told the Times.
According to the report, another anonymous US Official also claimed that President Obama considered using the military during the Bundy Ranch standoff but eventually decided against it.
It is also important to note the history of the Washington Post and their shilling for the global elite.
In his memoirs noted Globalist and world government proponent David Rockefeller thanked the Post along with the New York Times and Time Magazine for covering up Bilderberg and other globalist run meetings for close to 40 years.
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years……
It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government.
The supernational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.”
Fast forwarding to 2015, we are now seeing this newspaper (along with hundreds of other mainstream publications) seemingly work for the police state in their total and absolute shilling for the continued training and eventual use of the military against the American people.
