‘Violence Must Be An Option’: Husband Of Reopen NC Leader ‘Willing To Kill People’ Over ‘Stay At Home’ Orders



Adam Smith, the husband of the woman who leads the Reopen NC movement, says people should be willing to kill, if necessary, to resist the “New World Order” and emergency orders imposed by state government to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a report by The Raw Story.

Smith, a retired Marine who owns a payment-processing company in Burke County, posted a string of Facebook Live videos on Facebook on Friday, that culminated with a chilling threat.

“But are we willing to kill people? Are we willing to lay down our lives?” he asked. “We have to say, ‘Yes.’ We have to say, ‘Yes.’ Is that violence? Is that terrorism? No, it’s not terrorism. I’m not trying to strike fear in people by saying, ‘I’m going to kill you.’ I’m gonna say, ‘If you bring guns, I’m gonna bring guns. If you’re armed with this, we’re going to be armed with this,’” he wrote according to Raw Story.

From the report:

The live videos were posted over the course of the day while driving his car on May 22, 2020. Smith said in the videos that he feels called by God and by his understanding of the Constitution to prepare for a violent showdown.

“I believe God’s drawing a plumb line,” he said. “And he’s wanting us to choose which side we’ll be on…. Had to grab me a little grub — which of history we’ll be on.”

In another video, captioned “Those who are awake must be ready to fight,” Smith complained about a “bombardment” of media stories and social marketing surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, along with appeals to social solidarity and cooperation, which he contended are “just making it normal for this quarantine level of society that they want us to live in.

“This is a test,” he continued. “This is seeing if we are ready to accept the mark of the beast, if we are ready to accept this New World Order system they want to implement over humanity.”

He also called on fellow military veterans to attend the rallies one of the videos, warning that “today is the day the Constitution is under attack and tomorrow might be the day where all our rights are removed.”

Smith has removed the videos from his Facebook page since being contacted by Raw Story.

His wife, Ashley Smith, the co-founder of Reopen NC and the movement’s most visible leader, is organizing simultaneous rallies in five cities — Raleigh, Charlotte, Greensboro, Asheville and Wilmington — on Monday to commemorate Memorial Day and protest Gov. Roy Cooper’s handling of the coronavirus response. The rallies have attracted considerable support from Republican politicians, with state Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey and lieutenant gubernatorial candidate Mark Robinson speaking at the Greensboro event.

Smith was arrested by State Capitol Police during the April 28 reopen rally after being warned not to step on the sidewalk in front of the executive mansion.

As the officers placed her under arrest, Smith can be heard in a video posted by the Raleigh News & Observer saying, “My tax dollars paid for this. You’re dishonoring the flag. You’re not an oath-keeper. You’re ashamed of this Constitution.”
