DHS trains for U.S. militia with 'Uncle Sam' hats

Forget Islam: Exercises focuses on fictional 'Free America Citizens' group

While two brothers reportedly motivated by Islamic fundamentalism were carrying out the Boston Marathon bombing, the city was hard at work planning a mass casualty terrorism-training exercise in which the perpetrators were American militiamen whose logo includes Uncle Sam hats.

The Boston Globe revealed the plot of “Operation Urban Shield,” a simulation by the Department of Homeland Security costing $200,000. The program was slated to take place last weekend to train local Boston law-enforcement agencies to work together to thwart a terrorist threat.

The Boston newspaper reported officials from a dozen agencies had been meeting for months to plan the simulation and had already recruited students from Northeastern University and the Boston Police Academy to play the parts of terrorists and witnesses.

While the vast majority of all terrorist attacks worldwide are carried out by Muslims, the DHS program decided to train for a different set of antagonists.

It’s the symbolism that bother me. These yahoos are convinced the right (loyal citizens) is the terrorism problem in the U.S.

Have they ever been to an A.N.S.W.E.R. rally?

Our government is seriously screwed up.

It all depends on how you define the word, “terrorist.”

This FEMA guy thinks they aren’t Muzzies.

This really makes me furious. Every police, SWAT, and military training manual and exercise lately seems to focus on subduing or killing law-abiding, freedom-loving Americans. And there’s nary a mention of our real enemy, despite tons of evidence. What the hell is going on?

I’m sure they’re studying Helmuth von Moltke.

What the hell is going on? We have Stalinists and other Orwellian types running the machinery of government. Their agents would sooner kill American citizens than Islamic terrorists. This exercise with the Boston PD is proof of it, and they are continuing to train on how to shoot and kill Americans. There is nothing fictitious about their agenda. Bill Ayers wrote that about 20 million Americans must be murdered or incarcerated in order for their communist ideology to function here. The democrats are simply bringing his words to life.

The people in power are sick and tired of the constraints that the Constitution puts on them, a majority of Americans are too stupid to notice or care, and those same wannabe dictators are training their thugs to take out those who stand in their way. Just like has happened numerous times throughout history.

Any questions?

Our leftist government is preparing to go to war against any Americans who oppose their “fundamental transformation of America”. God help them if they lose power. God help us if they don’t.

Thanks. I was looking for that to post. Just a coincidence that everyone’s White right?

This last week, FEMA, at www.fema.gov/NIMS
FEMA-NIMS@fema.dhs.gov announced a “National Engagement Period” establishing a heirarchy of formal job positions in Mass Care, Public Works, and GIS.

What is a “National Engagement Period” and why is it established? The only place I’ve seen the term is from Great Britain in socialized medicine QC literature.
