Army Report Details How Military Can Be Used Against Tea Party, Right Wingers & American Citizens
A theoretical report about the future use of the military as a police force within the United States is causing a firestorm of controversy.
The report, Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A “Vision” of the Future, was written by a retired Army Colonel and describes how future warfare will be conducted on American soil. The report depicts a scenario where the U.S. Military will have to use its power against the American public.
The study begins by laying out how the U.S. Army’s Operating Concept 2016-2028 will include military operations throughout the United States. The outrageous report goes on to describe a theoretical situation where the U.S. Army is sent in to a city that has been taken over by Tea Party “insurrectionists”.
The report starts in an eerie almost prophetic tone and then goes on to demonize tea party members and “immigrant-bashing by right-wing demagogues”…
“The Great Recession of the early twenty-first century lasts far longer than anyone anticipated. After a change in control of the White House and Congress in 2012, the governing party cuts off all funding that had been dedicated to boosting the economy or toward relief…” “…. By 2016, the economy shows signs of reawakening, but the middle and lower-middle classes have yet to experience much in the way of job growth or pay raises.
Unemployment continues to hover perilously close to double digits, small businesses cannot meet bankers’ terms to borrow money, and taxes on the middle class remain relatively high. A high-profile and vocal minority has directed the public’s fear and frustration at nonwhites and immigrants. After almost ten years of race-baiting and immigrant-bashing by right-wing demagogues, nearly one in five Americans reports being vehemently opposed to immigration, legal or illegal, and even U.S.-born nonwhites have become occasional targets for mobs of angry whites.”
