Pat Robertson: Our Government Is Stockpiling Weapons To Use Against Citizens
The televangelist is buying into the discredited meme that the Department of Homeland Security is stockpiling weapons to use against Americans.
“Long trains full of armored vehicles, personnel carriers with armor, what are they for, the army going into battle against the enemy? They’re used by Homeland Security against us,” Robertson ominously warned. “Imagine what Homeland Security is doing is just awful and we’re going to talk about how much ammunition they’re stockpiling: who are they going to shoot, us?”
This right-wing talking point has already been discredited.
According to the Associated Press, the ammunition is used in trainings for “tens of thousands of federal law enforcement officers” and for the use of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
