Just after Donald Trump predicted Britain would exit the European Union and promised to defy the United Nations as president, conservative activists have called for the US to follow in England’s footsteps and declare independence from the UN as well. However, what a Virginia man captured on camera, traveling down an interstate, bodes a sinister warning for every freedom-loving American.
Gaining popularity for his correct prediction on Brexit, Trump may very well earn even more support for his threat to defy the UN after calling their climate change policy “draconian climate rules” and a “hoax.” Fortunately for the presidential hopeful, photos from a motorist driving down a highway through Lexington might be the push Trump needs to continue garnering validation for blasting the UN.
While heading down I-81, Jeff Stern quickly snapped several photos of armored UN vehicles on flatbed trucks passing his car, according to the Daily Mail. A long line of military vehicles was being moved along the interstate for what Stern described as a lengthy amount of time.
“Can’t begin to tell you how many of these I passed today on 81 near Lexington VA. Interesting times ahead!” Stern wrote on Facebook.
The white trucks were equipped with off-road tires and appear to be Alpine Armoring’s Pit-Bull VX SWAT trucks, Mail Online reports.
Not long after posting the images to social media, users commented on the ominous nature of the sighting.
“Tactical Vehicles, with bullet proof glass? Whatever could those be for, and why are UN vehicles here, in THIS country?!” one user wrote.
“They are sealed against gas too,” another pointed out.
Adding to the uproar, Bobby Wayne Guinn confirmed a similar sighting in Dallas as well, questioning why so many UN vehicles were being transported to his state.
“Wondering why 30 United Nations vehicles, fully loaded with combat-prepared troops, were driving down our highway in Dallas, Texas,” he wrote on Facebook.
Another report from June 2015 caused panic after UN officials were accused of a stealth operation. A wave of alarming theories was sparked when a motorist uploaded footageof trucks with the UN logo covered up by paper.
The most recent pictures, however, sparked debate over whether the arrival is related to Iranian ships approaching the U.S. border, which Alex Jones warned could be a “UN takeover of America.” Unfortunately, the UN has yet to respond to questions over the sudden appearance of armored trucks in several states across the U.S.
The DC Clothesline adds that similar observances have been reported in North Carolina, West Virginia, and Ohio, increasing recent sightings to 5 states. These reports include lines of equipment such as “Humvees, troop transport trucks, and tankers.” Some have also claimed there was military personnel, wearing helmets in civilian vehicles, following closely behind.
It’s possible that some of these incidents could be chalked up to routine shipments or transport, but many aren’t settling for such a benign excuse.
Regardless of the reasons for such a presence, Americans have good cause for concern and undeniably have the right to know why a foreign governmental body is here. As an intergovernmental organization with 193 Member States, the UN is a powerful force. Of course, history tells us that with great power comes great tyranny — something the U.S. knows all too well.
