“I DO NOT TRUST BARAK OBAMA”: Emails To Texas Governor Over #JadeHelm15

A not-small group of Americans thinks Barack Obama is considering an armed invasion of the Southwestern States, making it the first time in history a leader would attempt to conquer something he already controls. They write lots and lots of angry letters.

Thanks to the curse of ubiquitous wifi, the large, innocuous training exercise known as JADE HELM ‘15 went from InfoWars meme to MSNBC fodder in no time at all. The catalyst was Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who indulged his state’s paranoid population by ordering the Texas State Guard to “monitor” the U.S. Army. After his announcement, I submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to his office for emails pertaining to Jade Helm (I can’t keep putting that in caps), and received hundreds of pages of emails from furious constituents, xenophobes, conspiracy theorists, and manic caps-lock devotees.
