DHS Vs Christians – A Troubling Trend
Most Americans believe that they understand the profile of a typical terrorist, based on actual terror attacks, examples of which date mainly back to September 2011 and even before. But do you know that you may easily be branded a potential terrorist by your own government?
There is a disturbing trend that is slowly but surely gaining ground in the United States: the profiling and targeting by The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) of certain groups: mainly 2nd Amendment proponents, Christians and “right-wingers” in general, as “domestic terrorists”.
In a recent example, documents from an Ohio National Guard (ONG) Civil Support Team training drill conducted in January reveal the details of a mock disaster, where Second Amendment supporters with “anti-government” opinions were portrayed as domestic terrorists.
The report from MediaTrackers.org outlines the training scenario, which involves a plot from local school district employees to use biological weapons in order to advance their beliefs about “protecting Gun Rights and Second Amendment rights.” The biological weapons demonstrated during the drill involved the poisoning of school lunches with mustard gas by two Portsmouth Junior High School employees, acting on orders from white-nationalist leader William Pierce.
This then necessitated the activation of containment and decontamination procedures. Another aspect of the disaster drill involved the discovery of documents expressing the school employees’ “anti-government” sentiments.
No apology appears to be forthcoming to Ohioans who support limited government and the Second Amendment. Instead, Scioto County Emergency Management Agency director Kim Carver refused to comment, while Ohio National Guard Communications Director James Sims II suggested Media Trackers was merely “inferring” from the ONG document’s contents and that it was “not relevant” to understand why conservatives may feel unduly targeted by ONG’s training scenario.
The Media Trackers report further quotes Buckeye Firearms Association spokesman Chad Baus: “It is a scary day indeed when law enforcement are being trained that Second Amendment advocates are the enemy.” In a separate Media Trackers interview, Portage County TEA Party Executive Director Tom Zawistowski states: “The revelation of this information is appalling to me, and to all citizens of Ohio who are true conservatives and patriots, who don’t have guns for any other reason than that the Second Amendment gives them that right.”
The past year has been a good indication that these trends initiated by the DHS are by no means arbitrary but are instead by design. Below are some key examples:
1. A report published in Infowars.com on January 17, 2013 states: “Following Obama’s choreographed attack on the Second Amendment earlier this week, the Department of Homeland Security announced it will join the administration, the Justice Department and the FBI in a renewed attack on firearms.”
The report concludes: “Law-abiding Gun Owners Are the Target, Not al-Qaeda Terrorists… in the wake of Sandy Hook – the establishment is finally pulling out the last remaining stops in its long envisioned disarmament of the American people in accord with its ultimate plan to usher in a one-world government and financial system. A well-armed and educated populace prevents the global elite from realizing this objective.”
2. A news report from Redstatements.co released on April 5, 2013 titled “Colorado State Police and Homeland Security Target Christians”, also illustrates the DHS tendency to target Christians. Below is a summary of quotes attributed to Sheriff Ron Trowbridge , Undersheriff in Prowers County, Colorado in a letter he wrote detailing a Colorado State Patrol (CSP) training session that he attended:
“Trooper Joe Kluczynski taught a 2-hour section on sovereign citizens and gave a generalized list of those groups that have sovereign citizen views. Among those groups, Kluczynski had listed, were those who believe America was founded on godly principles, Christians who take the Bible literally, and “fundamentalists”.
Kluczynski did not explain what he meant by “fundamentalists” but from the context it was clear he was referring again to those who took the Bible literally or “too seriously.” While Kluczynski emphasized that sovereign citizens have a right to their beliefs, he was clearly teaching that the groups he had listed should be watched by law enforcement and should be treated with caution because of their potential to assault law enforcement.”
3. In another analysis, the Commonsenseshow.com on May 19, 2013 in its report DHS Training Local Police to Enforce Martial Law comments: “The real reason that DHS has been created is now becoming obvious to all. With the advent of the MIAC Report which listed gun owners, Second Amendment supporters, Ron Paul supporters, Libertarians, Constitutionalists, Veterans and Christians as “domestic terrorists”….
Recently, DHS sponsored a self-study entitled, “Homeland Security and Intelligence: Next Steps in Evolving the Mission”, in which DHS proclaims that they are no longer concerned with foreign inspired terrorism. They are only going to focus on domestic terrorism, ostensibly, against the American people.
Does the DHS purchase of 2.2 billion rounds of ammo, the acquisition of 2700 armored personnel carriers and the beta test of martial law in Boston last April begin to make any sense?…Incredibly, DHS says that other agencies can deal with what once was the omnipresent and all-encompassing threat of terrorism that was initially used to justify DHS’s creation, powers and huge budget.”
4. Infowars.com on October 25, 2013, comments : The Secretary of the Army has halted training programs that characterize conservatives as radical extremists in light of numerous media reports which highlighted how recruits were being taught that Christians were to be considered “domestic hate groups”…
As reported on October 24th, Fort Hood soldiers were told that Christians, Tea Party supporters and anti-abortion activists were a radical terror threat, enemies of America, and that anyone found to be supporting these groups would be subject to discipline under the Uniform Code of Military Justice… it also emerged that several dozen active duty and reserve troops at Camp Shelby in Mississippi were taught that the American Family Association, a well-respected Christian ministry, was a “domestic hate group,” prompting five Congressmen to complaint that the “mislabeling of a Christian organization reflects what appears to be a troubling trend of religious intolerance in the military.”
With all these recurring types of incidents, concern is mounting as to where the U.S is heading to: focusing on internal “enemies” while the real enemies of America have less resources and attention allocated to monitor and stop them.
