Operation Jade Helm 15 has begun and many Jade Helm 15 videos have already begun to spread around in an attempt to prove the Texas invasion. Unfortunately, the situation has created much heat between conservatives and progressives due to the political rhetoric being lobbed around like bombs. One Jade Helm 15 protester named Pete Lanteri even claimed in a moment of anger that he “can’t wait to kill thousands of these f**ks” after he was attacked on social media by “libs, conspiracy nuts and 90% of these useless f**king Americans.”
In a related report by the Inquisitr, U.S. military officials responded to claims about Operation Jade Helm 15 and martial law by President Obama.
U.S. Special Operations Command unit Lt. Col. Robert Pawlak said Operation Jade Helm 15 is being conducted inside the United States because the “cost of trying to do this exercise overseas will easily soar into hundreds of millions of dollars.” The goal of Jade Helm 15 is to train U.S. special forces from all branches of the military in unconventional warfare.
Not everyone believes the purpose of Operation Jade Helm 15 is so innocent. While conspiracy theorists are worried about concentration camps and martial law, former U.S. Marine Pete Lanteri founded the Counter Jade Helm Facebook page and website in order to ensure the 1,200 special forces behave themselves while on public land.
“We’re going to be watching what they do in public,” he said. “Obviously on a military base they can do whatever they want. But if they’re going to trade on public land, we have a right as American citizens to watch what they’re doing.”
In response, Lanteri says his group’s Facebook page came under attack, so he shut down the main group and split it up into multiple private groups focused on the states where Operation Jade Helm 15 will be conducted. Lanteri says he was criticized by both sides of the political aisle, with progressives calling him a right wing conspiracy theorist, while actual conspiracy theorists called him a government agent.
Lanteri knows that Operation Jade Helm 15 is simply a military exercise, but he believes the counter Jade Helm movement is necessary in order to correct false media reports.
“It’s not the military that needs us, it’s the everyday person who’s messaging me, saying they’re scared because they’re seeing all this media attention (and asking) what’s going on,” Lanteri said. “The government throughout history has tested on Americans without Americans knowing.”
Still, Lanteri has received a lot of heat for writing, “I can’t wait to kill thousands of these f**ks, man.” Calling himself a “Sicilian hothead from the Bronx,” Lanteri defended this violent outburst against progressives, saying he was upset because his dog had recently died.
“I admit I wrote it, and I admit it was stupid, and guess what? I was hotheaded,” Pete Lanteri said according to Raw Story. “Those were rare examples, but I personally felt like this was needed, others agreed with me, and we’re going to do it,” he said. “We’re not going to be there in camouflage, we’re not going to be armed, we’re not going to hold protest signs, we’re not going to interfere with them in any way. They’re not going to know we’re there, just like most of the time we’re not going to know they’re there.”
