DHS’s “See Something, Say Something” Video Fingers White, Middle-Class Americans as Most Likely to be Terrorists

Gee, wasn’t the Department of Homeland Security sold to the American people under the guise of protecting Americans from Islamic terrorists?  

Yup, more Lefturd programming of Americans by the likes of Big Sis Janet Nappylatino and her fascist cronies:

DHS Video Characterizes White Americans as Most Likely Terrorists

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?

Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the DHS’ own internal documents list predominantly white conservative groups as the most likely terrorists, such as Ron Paul supporters, gun owners, gold bullion enthusiasts, and a myriad of other comparatively banal political interests that are largely the domain of white middle class Americans.

This has little to do with the color of a person’s skin, and everything to do with the fact that white, middle class Americans are the biggest roadblock when it comes to Big Sis expanding its control over every facet of American society.

It’s plain to see that very little of the budget for this video went towards paying for decent actors, but perhaps it’s fitting that the participants were about as believable as Santa and his elves, because the notion that terrorists are hovering around every underground parking lot waiting to blow up federal buildings is demonstrably false.

As Ohio University’s John Mueller has documented, the likelihood of actually being a victim of terrorism is infinitesimally small, and only highlights how such threats are hyperbolically exaggerated for political purposes.

Figures collected by Mueller clearly show that Americans are just as likely to be killed by lightning strikes, accident-causing deer, or severe allergic reactions to peanuts.

But the facts don’t matter for a federal agency whose primary function is to manufacture fear to keep Americans under control and submissive to the fact that their economic futures and their constitutional rights are being torn to shreds by their own government while it points to a contrived outside threat as a convenient distraction.

“At its core, the video is filled with scenes of ordinary citizens spying on each other and alerting the authorities to their compatriots’ suspicious deeds,” writes Simon Black. In my favorite scene, a woman calls the police after snooping over the shoulder of a young man typing away on his smartphone.”

Black notes that such videos are solely aimed at reinforcing ignorance, hate and fear for those who still live in darkness and are completely unaware of the real agenda behind Homeland Security’s “see something, say something” charade.

But what is that agenda?

No matter where you look, from East Germany, to Communist Russia, to Nazi Germany, historically governments who encourage their own citizens to report on each other do so not for any genuine safety concerns or presumed benefits to security, but in order to create an authoritarian police state that coerces the people into policing each other’s behavior and thoughts.

As Robert Gellately of Florida State University has highlighted, Germans under Hitler denounced their neighbors and friends not because they genuinely believed them to be a security threat, but because they expected to selfishly benefit from doing so, both financially, socially and psychologically via a pavlovian need to be rewarded by their masters for their obedience.

At the height of its influence around one in seven of the East German population was an informant for the Stasi. As in Nazi Germany, the creation of an informant system was wholly centered around identifying political dissidents and those with grievances against the state, and had little or nothing to do with genuine security concerns.

This is the kind of society the Department of Homeland Security is, whether deliberately or inadvertently, recreating in 21st century America. It is about as far removed as you can possibly get from the vision the founders of the nation had in mind when they created the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence.

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.

This is about playing minorities off against whites, creating further resentment and suspicion, getting us at each other’s throats just as how different racial groups were set upon each other in Hitler’s Germany to create an environment of fear and distrust, motivating people to inform on each other for the state.

    The real danger is this was no accident. The administration may have trouble makers spreading paranoia.

    Black on White violence has been reported in many major US cities over the last few months. Flash Mobs have attacked Whites, sometimes to rob them and sometimes just to beat them.

    It is still to early to tell if this is related to an attempt to start a race war or just another tactic being spread through the gangs.

    If enough “trouble” takes place, I would not put it past the administration to cancel the election to “protect” the public.

    Keep watching your local news to see if the pattern includes your areas, if so arm yourself. You can not shoot down a violent flash mob but you can thin them out some.

      Even over a decade ago, I recall an interview of blacks in a park, about whether they felt blacks were better off now as opposed to decades earlier. The majority of blacks thought that times were much worse for them now. They seemed befuddled when the interviewer asked how that could be when in the 40’s, blacks were not even allowed in the park that they were standing in.

      Yes, it does seem that blacks are being fed a constant supply of “you are wronged”. Much of that seems to be passed along by their own family and community, albeit the media is certainly supplying amble fodder to feed the delirium. When you’re poor and black, it is whitey’s fault. But if you’re black and succeed, your practically ostracized by your community for being “Uncle Tom” – having sucked up to whitey. Good grief. Time to get rid of the success stigma IMHO. How? – I dunno.

      Black Tea Party’ers rally against the NAACP, who they say causes racial divide in America…for political gain.

    • Big Frank Says:

      IMHO they (this corrupt administration) will use any method to foster in a state of fear and then exert more control over us. For our ‘own good’ of course. The people will demand ‘law and order’, the government will comply with ‘law and order’ minus freedom , liberty, and Constitutional rights. With the actions of the TSA we are halfway there.

    Remember, your the Duke! “A” Number 1! So you still want to kill me Snake? Naw, not right now, I’m too tired, maybe later. Escape from zoo york, it is infecting everywhere.

  3. Leatherneck Says:

    Yep, it is those evil white demons that are the real terrorists.

    I wonder if the Globalists are just really scared of Honorably Discharged Christian Nationalists clinging to their weapons, and Bibles. It may be what is really slowing the New Age. Therefore, the Bull Dike, Billery, DaOne, and Holder can’t really do everything Soros has paid them off to do.

    The government plantation helps divide the country, and further racial politics. If everyone that is an American understood we are all green, then the left could not expand their Marxist ideology.

  4. Big Frank Says:

    IMHO the government always has to have a bogeyman for the public to fear. These bogeymen come in all types global warming, swine flu (H1N1), a terrorist attack at any minute, or anything they can force feed us through the MSM (i.e. the Ministry of Propaganda) sometimes referred to as the ‘government media complex’.

    • Gonzo Says:

      Its easier to fix a non-existent problem. That way, you can more easily show how you fixed a problem. Or, maybe they are exercises for asserting authority.

      I have 2 theories about why we really have alternating daylight savings time. 1) to give the elite more time on the golf course
      2) as some way to make less intelligent folks think that the all powerful guberment can control the sun. Either way, it annoys the living crap out of me every time of I have to reset clocks for a yet identified legitimate reason. Even the controlled media can’t seem to articulate a reasonable explanation.

  5. Big Frank Says:

    Welcome in the new ‘STAZI’ (TSA) they will soon be looking for dupes and liberal, ass kissers , who will do anything to please the administration of our ‘Dear Leader’ to be their ‘Volkspolizi’ (Peoples police), all in the name of a safer ‘Homeland’.The use of the word ‘Homeland’ really bothers me. IMHO it is akin to the use of ‘Fatherland’ during the Nazi era.
