Forum Post: More "Terror" Bullshit to Scare Us

Posted 8 years ago on Dec. 3, 2011, 6:36 a.m. EST by bklynsboy (834)

Homeland Security director Janet Napolitano issues another threat of a lone wolf terrorist stalking you and striking at any time, and there's nothing we can do. Lions and tigers and bears, Oh My! The world, Europe, America has had Lone Wolves attacking throughout history. Remember the IRA? NYC had the Mad Bomber in the 1940's and 1950's with 33 bombs exploded in the city. There were bombs BEFORE the terrorists of the Middle East. Remember Oklahoma city?

This shit has always been present and always will be. The government and media work together to terrorize the population so it continues to vote for the bloated military and defense budget. War profits the 1% and makes trillions for military industries. It wants endless, win or lose war to keep the money pouring in. The US spends more than almost the rest of the world combined on the military. That money should be used for the 99% to create jobs, lower taxes and save homes. Now I'm going to hide under my covers.

True, this 'lone wolf' terrorist stinks of bullsh*t. If John Wayne Gacy or David Berkowitz were around today, would they be serial killers or 'lone wolf' terrorists?

I was watching Ghostbusters the other day on T.V. I remember when the civil servant Venkman shut down the containment grid, even though he was warned not to. As a result, all the ghosts were released over NYC. Then Venkman tried to blame the ghost explosion he caused on the ghostbusters, so they went to jail.

I was wondering, what would happen to the Ghostbusters if this story happened today? Would Bill Murray and the rest of them be wisecracking in Guantanamo bay, held indefinitely without trial? Probably, if we consider that the one-percent would be trying to summon Gozer the Gozerian to cull the 'excess' population.

One thing is quite clear: if there is no threat of terrorism our government will gladly provide one.

"False Flags" is what they're called

Article 5 is the answer.

[-] 0 points by alouis (1511) from New York, NY 8 years ago

Article 5 would let the Koch brothers re write the constitution. Not a good idea.

[-] 1 points by alexrai (851) 8 years ago

Yup that seems the be the intent behind the last 50 years of foreign policy...

Its not the pre-emptive attacks... they hate freedom, no really... never mind that we put those dictators in power 30 years ago. That was just so we'd have someone to bomb in the future, that's called contingency planning, who knew the cold war was ever going to end, and how is Lockheed Martin supposed to make a profit when people arn't afraid of the red menace?

have you ever read Dr. Martin Luther King's speech, "Beyond Vietnam."

Prophetic if you ask me.

The more exposed the "masters" feel then the more dangerous they become. If you think it won't get worse then you are way wrong.

[-] 2 points by bklynsboy (834) 8 years ago

Worse than 33 bombs in NYC in the 40's and 50's by the mad Bomber? worse than the IRA? The scare threats are bullshit.

[-] 1 points by CompassioNateBuddha (100) 8 years ago

Just more propaganda created to keep us focused on false threat instead of the "Man behind the curtain".

Financial terrorism does scare me! The banksters celebrate Christmas and don't do as Jesus would.

We have "lone wolf terrorists" out there - people with a beer in one hand and a steering wheel in the other. Improved safety precautions and an offensive against drunken driving reduced the deaths from traffic accidents by nearly 10,000 a year from 2005 to 2009 ( http://www.thecarconnection.com/news/1043314_u-s-traffic-fatalities-hit-historic-lows ). That's like stopping three World Trade Center bombings every year. We need to focus our efforts toward the places people are dying - traffic accidents, heart attacks, cancer - not one-in-a-million events.

[-] 1 points by bklynsboy (834) 8 years ago

They are making their own terrorists! They bully, harass these young Muslim people who are against U.S. foreign policy and send undercover agents to motivate and encourage these people. They give them resources, and make sure police harass them. And finally a guy decides to burn a police car. Here you go , you have a lone wolf. There is a chicken egg problem here. They make their own terrorist so they can go with their domestic and foreign agenda. Muslims get bullied and harassed around the country, you can always turn one into a politically active one with a small homemade bomb when you apply all these resources to turn this guy into something like this. Violence breed violence. Oklahoma bomber wanted the body count because of the people who died when FBI raided a religious sect. Violence in form of harassment and bullying, when accompanied by police harassment and FBI motivation will give you a couple of these bombers every year. So you can go with your industrial military complex agenda of homeland security and foreign policy.

[-] 1 points by bklynsboy (834) 8 years ago

In fact, our presence as invaders in their country killing civilians even by accident, invites hatred and blowback with their intent to harm us. We leave, it's over.

[-] 1 points by ContinuationofEarth (220) 8 years ago

Muslim people we inspired by our liberties, at least in its appearance. They want democracy and everything. They will by time develop their democracies. It is a lie to portray Muslims as incapable of building democracies. It is military industrial complex which keeps these countries in miserable condition to control the region, get the oil, and maintain oil backed dollar. Muslim women get respect from men. There are issues but Muslim women are loved very much by their sons and husbands. Media bring some extreme cases in attention to assert that women are oppressed to maintain prejudice against these countries.

Paranoid manure financed by Kochs and the military industrial complex to keep the trillions of dollars pouring in. They'll say anything to keep it going. Even being unpatriotic with lies to frighten the public. Communism and old Russia are dead. The IRA is dead, the mad NYC bomber (33 BOMBS) is dead. Japan and Germany which were REAL threats were conquered and no longer threaten. Those were REAL threats. The rest is unexceptional bullshit that has been around since civilization began. There are always nuts out there. Clear your mind of this trash.

The New World Order's communist agenda, disguised as socialism has been ushered in under the banner of "TERROR" for the last 10 years.

Communism, socialism is dead. Cuba, China are virtually capitalist.

I look at it this way - her job is highly politicized today. It shouldn't be, but it is.

She has a job to do.

If she can't do it, then that means someone else will have to - like the Pentagon.

I don't want the Pentagon chasing Timothy McVieghs through the streets of Manhattan - you ever seen what kinds of damage a several ton tracked vehicle can do to pavement?

[-] 2 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 8 years ago

Who do you think runs Homeland? Its the same as the rest of em, CIA.

[-] 1 points by ZenDogTroll (13032) from South Burlington, VT 8 years ago

The CIA is not now what it once was.

If you had been paying attention you would recognize a power shift and bureaucratic friction between the CIA and the DoD.

In theory all of these entities are under the auspices of civilian authority. It is up to the People to ensure that it remains so.

One hundred years of corporate influence and back room shenanigans leading to foreign intervention and meddling must come to an end.

We need a whole new way of doing business.

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 8 years ago

When Petraeus goes from DOD to head of CIA., and Panneta goes from CIA head to Defense Secratary, its as intertwined as ever.

We now have people who dont need to report to the president in his own cabinet. Obama has to go.

[-] 1 points by ZenDogTroll (13032) from South Burlington, VT 8 years ago

non sequitor

it's a leap that does not follow based on the information provided.

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 8 years ago

Well you clearly dont understand what I just said. They are simply switching the chairs around the deck.

Its an intertwined juggernaut, and pletny of my friends in the mil agree. And now you have people who have been hiding things from Obama for the last 3 yrs working along side of him.

He's isolated, ineffective and doesnt have the stones to say enough is enough. he's got to go.

[-] 1 points by ZenDogTroll (13032) from South Burlington, VT 8 years ago

Its an intertwined juggernaut, and pletny of my friends in the mil agree.

and so your solution is to place at the helm someone who is not up to speed on the realities you just spoke of?

When I see Air Force One conducting photo ops over the Manhattan skyline, I see that juggernaut you speak of.

When I look at those who have been fired by the President over their military strategy in Afghanistan, I see a President with his eyes open, focused on an objective - one with impacts both internationally and domestically.

Has he done enough?

I can't say. I lack sufficient data.

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 8 years ago

Well, he did send in an ass load more troops to kill and get killed, so I guess that is a good start for the neolibs/neocons.

[-] 1 points by ZenDogTroll (13032) from South Burlington, VT 8 years ago

you've got me, much to my surprise. I must be tired. I can't now recall when the Afghan buildup began.

[-] 1 points by bklynsboy (834) 8 years ago

It's all PR bullshit to scare the public. Tanks in the streets are more of the same. Never happen.

[-] 1 points by ZenDogTroll (13032) from South Burlington, VT 8 years ago

I was being factitious about the tanks.

Is she engaged in a tactic of fear? I don't know. I haven't heard anything about it on NBC or CBS - could be I missed it. If it was a tactic inspired by the admin, I would expect, as we saw under Bush, that the signal FEAR would be much louder and more consistent.

[-] 1 points by bklynsboy (834) 8 years ago

The mass media misses a lot. They all work together to maintain the money for the MIC.

[-] 1 points by ZenDogTroll (13032) from South Burlington, VT 8 years ago

Yes they do - but they do not miss signals of fear emanating from the pillars of power when that signal is focused and deliberate - which is what this post - your post - suggested.

[-] 1 points by bklynsboy (834) 8 years ago

The only thing pillars of power is afraid of is losing it when the masses learn they are being lied to and there is NO unusual terrorist threat.

[-] 1 points by ZenDogTroll (13032) from South Burlington, VT 8 years ago

Like I said, I missed the announcement you based this on.

However, in this country today, there is no end of the possible radicalization of various elements within our society.

Life all around us provides instruction through concrete demonstration of the allegorical or the analogous. I have no doubt chemistry does as well, though I am no chemist.
