Threats of Election Violence Ignored by Government, Mainstream Media

Threats of rioting, chaos and death over the upcoming presidential election are racing across Facebook and Twitter, while the silence is deafening from the government and most of the national mainstream media.
Thousands of posts on the social media websites call for harming presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his supporters if President Barack Obama loses the November election. InfoWars.com, Examiner.com and the Drudge Report are among the online sites reporting the story.
The government’s lack of public outrage over the threats shows how it selectively sanctions what people say. It’s also a potential way to use racial violence to justify martial law.
“I am afraid of division in this country and mindless racism being used by the Democratic Party to control people,” journalist and radio host Alex Jones said in a video report. “And the way they’ve been hyping that you’re racist if you don’t vote for Obama; trying to give people a political blank check to feel like they can go out and do this.”
That does not mean the Republicans are perfect, either, he said.
During an interview with The Western Center for Journalism, economist and political commentator Thomas Sowell, who is black, also said he fears riots will ensue if Obama loses the election.
Violence between racial and political groups feeds into the globalists’ mission of dividing and conquering the public. Threats over the presidential election could also be used to stage a false flag event or to set-up an October surprise – an event that can alter or influence a November election, Jones said on Monday’s broadcast.
If widespread rioting occurs, it could become an excuse for the government to place military checkpoints on our streets in the name of controlling civil unrest.
Threatening to riot is supposed to be considered a form of terrorism.
“If I said this, I’d be arrested,” Jones said Monday.
Government documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request proved that Jones’ media operations, including his website InfoWars.com, were monitored by the Department of Homeland Security. The surveillance was related to criticism of the government’s See Something, Say Something program, which urges people to turn in others who appear suspicious.
“Alex Jones is calling on people to place campaign posters in public places to counter a perceived ‘police state,’ ” the FOIA documents stated. “Supporters also might write the letter V on public property as a protest effort.”
Criticizing the government, displaying activist posters or believing in ‘conspiracy theories’ will land you on a government watch list. What about thousands of people making death threats and plans to trash their cities?
As of 2:25 p.m. Monday, the Department of Homeland Security had not posted an official statement denouncing the death threats and threats to riot over the presidential election. The story is also being ignored by most of the national mainstream media, although it has received widespread play in the alternative media.
If riots do occur and the police stand-down, that is a sure sign it was staged, said Jones.
“Exposing it may back this off,” he said.
