Would Our Own Military Shoot At American Citizens?
August 13, 2012
Grab a cup of coffee and read this interesting but very long article that contemplates military action against American citizens should domestic civil unrest or violence ensue, all fomented by “political reactionaries” (read: Tea Party types, of course). The Washington Times, in turn, editorializes on the same article a few days later. All very interesting, if not plain scary. Be sure to read the comments at the end of the first article, if you make it that far.
The authors describe a scenario taking place in (of all places) a SC town where the unrest first occurs:
“In May 2016 an extremist militia motivated by the goals of the “tea party” movement takes over the government of Darlington, South Carolina, occupying City Hall, disbanding the city council, and placing the mayor under house arrest. Activists remove the chief of police and either disarm local police and county sheriff departments or discourage them from interfering…..”
Upon reflection, I can only say, Sheesh! As I managed to wade through this, it became apparent to me that these two authors are little more than liberal nut jobs, not unlike the typical doofusses that populate MSNBC, but with an abundance of “alphabet degrees” and alleged experience that might seem to give them some intellectual legitimacy. That they are earning a living writing this crap amazes me. They assume that Obama is defeated in 2012 (a delightful prospect), his successor makes a worse mess of the economy, and the Tea Party types react, attempt to overthrow the government and the military is called in. If Obama is defeated (rather, WHEN he is defeated), the only credible threat to domestic tranquility, in my estimation, is from the cancerous “parasite class” whose government handouts come to an end, and the realization that they might actually have to work for a living causes them to react violently. The Occupy movement was the tip of this iceberg.
