Jade Helm 15 Coming to New Hampshire! Crap Your Pants eh.. Get Under the Bed Pronto!

h/t: Tim and Jan

As Tucker reports on his site Miscellany Blue the local New Hampshire wingnuttia has spun itself into a frenzy over someone’s sighting of a tank in Nashua.  This to them, offers proof that the dear citizens of Nashua and most likely those beyond may soon find themselves hauled off to FEMA camps no doubt hidden in any wooded areas nearby — or possibly in the gulags of nearby “self proclaimed SOCIALIST!” Bernie supporters.  Gulags of socialist oppression we’re sure where they’ll be forced to eat vegan foods, offered a hit of the best weed, some nice cold micro-brew and a yoga session before being set free with well wishes and invites to return.

Here’s Tucker’s story:

Jade Helm 15 update: ‘Tanks massing in New Hampshire’

The Obama administration to preparing to invade Texas, declare martial law and wage war on the American people.

If you missed that news, you haven’t been paying attention to conservative talk radio and Internet conspiracy sites. Fortunately, Jack Kimball is paying attention. The former state GOP chair and Ted Cruz advance man has been keeping his followers updated about the impending military takeover on Facebook.

Kimball first warned his supporters in March. “Wake up America! Operation Jade Helm 15 (look it up) has now expanded to 10 States,” he wrote, with a link to an Alex Jones InfoWars video.

Jade Helm 15 is a two-month long military training exercise scheduled for this fall in which American special operations forces will conduct counterinsurgency war games.

Conspiracy buffs grew suspicious when they discovered a Defense Department planning document for the exercise that labeled Texas and Utah as hostile territory. They noted those conservative states were depicted in red while states friendlier to the president were colored blue.

As Matt Yglesias writes, “The Pentagon’s official line is that they are not planning a takeover, but again, that’s what you would expect them to say.”

Kimball doesn’t buy it. “Jade Helm 15 just got worse! Pleeeeeese wake up America!” he implored earlier this month. “Massive movement of Military equipment across the US continues,” he warned.

Worst Right-Wing Messaging Evah!

Worst Marketing Decision Ever: Drycleaner Puts “Pro-life” Message on Their Hangers

From Dependable Renegade that got it from RH Reality Check:

There is a branch of anti-choice activists that will use pretty much anything as a medium for their message: newspaper ads, graphic signs displayed in front of schools, bus stop benches. You would think they would know well enough to leave one place untouched, though. Wire coat hangers.

You would be wrong.

Springdale Drycleaners of Cincinnati, Ohio, has been etching “Choose Life” ads on wire coat hangers used to hang dry-cleaning.

What’s worse is that this seems to be an ongoing effort. Reports of the “choose life” coat hangers already were on the internet back in March of 2011, when Joe.My.God posted a picture of the hanger then. And before that on Regretsy in 2010. So despite over two years of attention, the business continues to think this is an excellent cross-advertising campaign. In fact, the practice was losing them customers as far back as August of 2010, but still the dry-cleaner continues to use hangers as a place to offer inappropriate propaganda.

As NARAL Pro-Choice Wisconsin said on Facebook, it’s a reminder of why we will never let them make us go back.
