Former Navy SEAL Ben Smith participated in the “Million Vet March” last weekend, and on Tuesday he told Fox News’ he thinks the government is trying to provoke veterans into a situation where martial law may be used.
Smith told America’s Newsroom anchor Bill Hemmer the administration is going after vets’ Second Amendment rights, and have interfered with voting rights by not getting ballots to and from the military overseas. He referred to U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, who suggested using martial law to end the government shutdown last week.
“They want to discredit the military,” Smith said. “And get us to do something stupid, so they can lock us down.”
Hemmer asked Smith why he thought money was spent to close off the open-air memorials.
“It’s become a political war game,” Smith said.
