Pastor” Greg Locke of Global Vision Bible Church in Mount Juliet, TN, regaled a raucous crowd of clapping and cheering congregants with Q-anon conspiracies, shouting at them that Tennesee Governor Bill Lee just signed a bill that authorized concentration camps for the unvaccinated, according to Right Wing Watch.
Readers of Protestia will recognize him as the foul-mouthed, spouse-abusing-and-abandoning, small-time Tennessee pastor who notoriously divorced his wife of two decades and quickly married his secretary, claimed that “Mitch McConnell is being controlled by Illuminati hand signals,” threatened a Dunkin’ Donuts worker with kicking his teeth down his throat, recently prophecied a massive false flag shooting was about to take place in America, and recently said that if you deny the existence of tunnels under the White House or Capitol Building that were uncovered by the military and used to house both live and dead children, you’re just as complicit in the abuse as “crack-smoking perverts.”
In this case, he shouted and screamed at his audience.
“Did you see the executive order he just signed for COVID-19 It’s like 22 paragraphs long…But here are the two things that bothered me…Number one: He has authorized the power of the National Guard to get involved in issues of COVID-19. … You know what bothers me more about the National Guard getting involved? Why don’t you look at Section 8 of what he signed? … They’ve authorized the Tennessee Department of FEMA to build what they call—in his own authorized pages of a signature—quarantine camps. I ain’t talking about East Germany, I’m talking about Tennessee! Quarantine camps for the uninformed people that are still in refusal to be vaccinated.”
“Look if that don’t bother you, you might as well show up at another church next week because I’m going to continue raising cain about this. I don’t care what Bill Lee says. I don’t care what fraudulent, fake Joe Biden says. I don’t care what Planned Parenthood says. I don’t care what Chris Cuomo said. I don’t care what Gavin Newsom said. I don’t care what Nancy Pelosi and her insurrectionist nonsense has to say. You better wake up, church! You better wake up! They hate us. We are speed bumps to the deep state on the road to their progressive communism, and I’ll shout it from the rooftops if I’m the last one. I live by what I say, and I will die by what I say if I have to. I’ll fight this garbage until my dying breath.”
As far as the validity of those conspiracies, writer Kyle Mantyla notes:
“In addition to the fact that authorization to build temporary quarantine facilities is mentioned in Section 18, not Section 8, of Lee’s executive order, everything else Locke said about it is wrong.
The order does not give the National Guard the power to imprison those who refuse to be vaccinated but merely states that if temporary quarantine or isolation facilities need to be quickly constructed in Tennessee, the state, in an effort to speed up the process, has suspended regulations that require plans for the construction of new health care facilities to be preapproved and certified as meeting applicable state health and safety requirements.”
