There’s a website called Departed that I’ve never known before, which is spreading the alarming claim that Hillary Clinton’s emails reveal that Obama has a plan to confiscate guns from Republicans on November 8, the day of the presidential elections.
Below is the entirety of the post, “Found in Hillary’s recovered emails: Obama plans to seize Republican guns!“:
Fox News sources have revealed an Obama administration plot to confiscate all guns owned by citizens on record as belonging to or sympathetic to the Republican party.
Under the guise of combating domestic terrorism agents from ATF, DHS, FBI and other government troops have been ordered to kick in doors to confiscate weapons and ammunition from homes where the residents have registered as Republicans or voted for Republican candidates in any election.
The operation is said to be scheduled for November 8th of 2016.
In an even more sickening invasion of privacy and trampling of rights, the raids are being coordinated to occur when most citizens won’t even be home to protest the illegal seizure of their property. Doors will be kicked in so any weapons or ammunition on the property can be confiscated by the agents and taken out of the residences.
Republicans are strongly urged to remain at home on November 8th 2016 to assert their 4th and 2nd amendment rights!
Published 3 weeks ago, the undated post has already received 17,573 views and 5.6K “likes” on Facebook.
The problem is this: the very alarming post claims Fox News to be the source, but gives no link, embedded or otherwise, to Fox News.
Never believe information without a link to the original source.
Besides, if such a plan indeed was found in Hillary’s emails, wouldn’t that have been discovered and reported by Judicial Watch, the vigilant citizens’ watchdog group that is on top of Hillary’s emails and has filed one after another FOIA lawsuit for them?
The bogus Departed post urges Republicans to stay at home on November 8, ostensibly to protect their homes from being invaded and their guns confiscated by “government troops” — which means Republicans won’t be going to the polls to cast their votes, which in turn would ensure a Hillary victory.
Don’t be so stupid as to fall for this ruse.
The website Departed.co has no “About” page informing us what it is. Departed.co is owned by Departed LCC, whose “designated agent’s” address is 1401 Ocean Avenue 4J, Brooklyn, New York.
Zillow says it’s an apartment (no. 4J): a cooperative that was last sold in October 2005 for $208,000.
