Wingnut News Daily (aka wnd.com) is “reporting” on claims made by Sarah Palin that the US government is “Stockpiling” ammunition because of fears of civil unrest over the sequester:
Oh my… such intelligent comments from a former Republican VP nominee and tea-party favorite.
I already offered up some facts and rationallity on the ammunition nonsense here.
But of course, WND takes the conpiracy further:The prospect of civil unrest puts a chilling spin on an off-teleprompter remark then-candidate Barack Obama made in a Colorado campaign speech in July, 2008.
Oh dear- how worrying. But maybe we shoud look at the actual quote- and more importantly, the context. From FactCheck :
Oh my. I guess not surprising from the likes of those who only seem to be able to remember half of the 2nd amendment. Not surprising that the US Military- the Army/Navy/Air Force/Marines they so proudly support is in fact the standing federal military the founding fathers warned of- and why they insisted on “well regulated militias” under the individual states control to provide for the countries protection- from threats both external and internal.
