More Audio Surfaces From Dan Page, the St. Louis County Police Officer Suspended After Racist Remarks

Page says Ferguson, the border crisis, and other events are part of a far-reaching conspiracy.

More controversial audio has surfaced from Dan Page, the St. Louis County Police officer who pushed CNN’s Don Lemon in Ferguson on August 18 and was put on administrative leave after video surfaced of him talking about being “a killer,” calling President Obama “undocumented,” and disparaging Muslims.

The additional audio, found and highlighted on August 23 by left-wing advocacy and research group Political Research Associates, goes deeper into his beliefs that the United States is in danger of being folded into a one-world government after a series of orchestrated events, and that “99.9 percent” of sexual assault in the military is “bogus.” The audio comes from interviews Page did in July with Rick Wiles on the TruNews radio show, an end-times and right-wing conspiracy-theory forum, and in May with the John Moore Radio Show.

A sample:

On the Department of Homeland Security’s definition of a terrorist:

If you follow DHS’s, that’s Department of Homeland Security, definition of a terrorist, and now this is their definition, this not mine. It is a Caucasian male 18-65, one who supports the second amendment, one who believes in the second coming of Jesus Christ, one that is against illegal immigration and is against homosexuality and has a definition of traditional marriage. That is their definition of a terrorist.

On a planned chain of events leading to a military takeover of the United States:

I’ve heard talk from very, very high sources that there is a timeline starting in 2015…you have to be very watchful of created, orchestrated events within the United States…so there’s going action taken, I suspect within the continental United States and abroad, that’s going to create such havoc worldwide that people are going to demand some form of protection from the federal government. That’s what I suspect is coming. And this thing on the border right now with the illegals I think might be part of that.

On sexual assault in the military:

You’ve got Sen. Claire McCaskill right now beating the podium about assaults in the military and probably 99.9 percent of these things are bogus. One only need to look at a woman in a way that she feels uncomfortable and that’s considered sexual assault in the military.

Rachel Tabachnick, the PRA fellow who pointed out this radio interview, notes that Page says the crisis with unaccompanied children and the wider scenario includes nuclear suitcase bombs, a planned North American Union, and, of course, further “demonization of Caucasian Christians.”

“Page expresses his belief that the flood of immigrant children is a clandestine operation with the purpose of programming American citizens for the eventual rounding up and imprisonment of their own children,” Tabachnick wrote.

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today.
