The Department of Homeland Security is beginning to resemble the KGB. There are so many things wrong with this video that it is hard to know exactly where to begin.
See the original report on this video here: http://www.infowars.com/dhs-video-characterizes-white-americans-as-most-likely-terrorists/
The first and most important thing that strikes me is that it stands contrary to the idea that a person is innocent until proven guilty. Though not explicitly stated in our Constitution, it is derived from the 5th, 6th, and 14th amendments. There is a presumption of guilt throughout that video. All of the concerned citizens in the video presume that the people they observe are already guilty of the intent to commit a crime.
The second thing that strikes me is the use of “fusion centers”. I know what a police station, city hall, court of law, and fire department are. I know who and what policemen, firemen, the FBI, ATF, and other agencies are. I am not too clear on the TSA and why they get to grope people at airports, but I digress. What in the world is a “fusion center”? Who works there and who appoints them? Why would they be interested in what anyone is doing? More important, who manages and regulates them?
Last and most obvious is the almost exclusive use of white males as the purported terrorists. This hearkens back to 2009 when the DHS listed Ron Paul supporters, libertarians, people who display bumper stickers, people who own gold, militia members, or those who fly a U.S. flag as potential terrorists. If it were just the result of political correctness run amok, I would not be so concerned, but I get the feeling that there is more to it than just a desire to be politically correct. Only totalitarian regimes need secret police forces and informants. Such things have no place in a true republic.
Having said all of that, as a good, law-abiding citizen, I will comply with the wishes of the DHS. I wish to report suspicious activity. There is an organization in America that is working hard to characterize white American males as terrorists. This is suspicious in that it is diverting attention from the largest known pool of terrorists in the world. Someone please arrest Janet Napolitano for fostering a culture of paranoia and suspicion, focusing our attention more on each other than our real enemies, thus making us more susceptible to terrorist attacks.
