Observers are commenting on a pattern of increasingly brazen acts of instigation of Americans to take up arms in the event that Obama wins the November general election.
Observers are also pointing out that the US is going through an intensification of race-ethnic political tension previously exclusively associated with "Third World" countries.
The liberal website Think Progress notes the growing success of the intensive extreme right wing conspiracy theory propaganda and the increasing acceptance and influence of extreme right wing views in mainstream circles. The main line of right wing conspiracy theory claims that President Obama is plotting to use the United Nations and the National Security Presidential Directive-51, signed into law by George W. Bush on May 2, 2007, to transform the country "into a nation of liberal secular humanists with a Socialist government that will plot on behalf of a New World Order. " (Prison Planet, Free The Nation).
Observers of recent trends in right wing circles emphasize that the intensification of clamor over "right to bear arms" and assertion of Second Amendment rights is in response to the perception that Americans need to be armed to resist an imminent move by Obama to impose UN-backed left wing dictatorship on Americans.
The growing intensity of tribal drums of war is increasingly noticeable as the November election approaches. Right wing websites have intensified the Obama smear campaign. For instance, the extreme right wing website, Natural News, in a series of posts, promotes a conspiracy theory propaganda that borrows a lot from, and is eerily reminiscent of pre-World War II anti-Semitic propaganda in Germany that targeted Jewish controlled financial institutions in Europe, and which led to the crazed orgy of tribal killings of the Holocaust. The Natural News writer's allegations read like passages from pre-World War II German anti-Semitic tracts that promoted Jewish financial world-takeover conspiracy theories:
"The U.S. government clearly sees the writing on the wall. What lays ahead for America is a day of unbearable reckoning. The financial collapse will wipe out savings accounts, pensions, investment funds and equities of the working class, all across the nation. Imagine bank accounts being reset to zero, 'bank holidays' enforced at gunpoint. That will unleash a wave of violent protests, social chaos and even talk of revolution. The government will almost certainly respond with a declaration of Martial Law, the rolling out of highway checkpoints, and before long, the use of live ammo on unruly protesters."
The website claims that the Obama administration itself is preparing for war in anticipation of the financial apocalypse it claims is imminent:
