SBJ: "I hate to drone on about this, but is anybody else paying attention? How can this be allowed?
Surveillance drones have a new mission. According to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) they will be used for “public safety”. Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the DHS, told a House Committee meeting on Homeland Security that the more than 30,000 drones that will be deployed into American skies are just arbitrarily watching out for US citizens.
Hey, all that new-fangled surveillance just might be useful in the coming efforts to remove the types of weapons from law-abiding citizens that would allow them to protect themselves from, well, a run-away govenment. The chess pieces are being moved into place, some taking to the sky. Paranoia? Justified concern?"
Funny thing is that if you follow the "Surveilance Drones" link it takes you to well known conspiracy nut Alex Jone's Infowars website which of course feeds the fear with the following headline: "DHS Prepares for Civil Unrest as Obama Poised to Destroy 2nd Amendment".
However, if you follow the link about what Napolitano supposedly said from there you come the website called Nextgov, which I know little about. But what you'll find there is that NOWHERE in the article does it reference anything about 30,000 drones, let alone that many being deployed by the Department of Homeland Scrutiny. Instead Napolitano is responding to criticism from members of Congress that DHS is not involved ENOUGH in the setting air traffic control rules which fall under the jurisdiction of the FAA.
Once again we find that Alex Jones has no credibility, but if you're a RWNJ and it suits your fear-based agenda, you'll believe ANYTHING and take it at face value. Now I'm no fan of DHS and yes "justified concern" is warranted, but the TPz will always opt for paranoia. What I find amazing is that they didn't bring up the citizen internment camps that are supposedly being constructed all over America to confine us all. Come on people, let's no leave any of the good scary shtuff out!
The article goes on to point out that the Federal Protective Service (FPS) has been given the responsibility to protecting federally owned property while preparing for civilian led riots expected in the near future. Part of the preparatory measures was an order of 150 sets of riot gear that was requested to be filled exponentially – within 15 days. Ooooooooo 150, talk about your major mobilization! And don't ask me what an "exponentially filled" order is.
Then of course we leap to the guns! Wayne LaPierre, vice president of the BLOODY NRA, has called out Obama as being part of “conspiracy to ensure re-election by lulling gun owners to sleep. All that first term, lip service to gun owners is just part of a massive Obama conspiracy to deceive voters and hide his true intentions to destroy the Second Amendment during his second term.”
Be afraid afraid of the dark man in the oval office, be very afraid. And keep buyin them guns ya'll, the fear profiteers are smilin all the way to the bank!
