I usually tend to ignore the hysteria from Alex Jones websites, but Joseph Watson at Infowars catches something interesting from the Department Of Big Sis
A new promotional video released by the Department of Homeland Security characterizes white middle class Americans as the most likely terrorists, as Big Sis continues its relentless drive to cement the myth that mad bombers are hiding around every corner, when in reality Americans are just as likely to be killed by lightning strikes or peanut allergies.
The video is part of Homeland Security’s $10 million dollar “See Something, Say Something” program that encourages Americans to report “suspicious activity,” which in every case throughout history has been a trait of oppressive, dictatorial regimes.
In the course of the 10 minute clip, a myriad of different behaviors are characterized as terrorism, including opposing surveillance, using a video camera, talking to police officers, wearing hoodies, driving vans, writing on a piece of paper, and using a cell phone recording application.
Despite encouraging viewers not to pay attention to a person’s race in determining whether or not they may be a terrorist, almost all of the scenarios in the clip proceed to portray white people as the most likely terrorists. Bizarrely, nearly every single one of the “patriotic” Americans who reports on their fellow citizen is either black, Asian or Arab. Imagine if the video had portrayed every terrorist as an Arab and every patriotic snoop as white, there’d be an outcry and rightly so, but this strange reversal must have been deliberate on the part of the DHS, but why? Is this merely political correctness taken to the extreme or is something deeper at work?
This just follows along with Janet Napolitano’s uber politicization of DHS, along with their failure to properly identify who tends to be a terrorist: males of Arab origin who practice Islam.
But, on the other hand, perhaps she does have a slight point in identifying white people, since you also have wonderful groups of white liberals, such as ELF, and other white liberals who aren’t really terrorists, but are certainly violent, like all the “anarchists” who show up at all the rallies and political events, causing havoc and property damage, as well as throwing objects at police. Oh, and then there are all those white college kids who support Hezbollah, Hamas, and other terrorist organizations, and want to destroy Israel.
Alex Jones adds to the story at the end
Comment by Alex Jones: This DHS video is purposefully designed to transmit fear and hatred of Muslims over to white Americans. Look at the part of the clip where an image of “Jihad Jane” is displayed, the blue eyes are artificially intensified in order to get the message across.
Hmph: maybe the video was actually about liberals.
