What you are about to see is a training video the DHS is using, or has used, to depict scenarios where domestic raids are necessary to thwart terrorist attacks. While it might be logical for a video to depict radical muslims or similar entities plotting bombings or mass killings, the DHS apparently chose to ignore these groups, instead opting to use “illegal gun owners” as the evil guys. The video even references a “local militia group” in the fake news report.
Exactly when the video was made is unclear, but the video description links to a DHS website featuring documents that were uploaded in 2009 and 2012.
In the video, a fake local news anchor comes on the screen with breaking news.
“Reports of possible illegal activity by a local militia group appears to have spurred law enforcement into action,” the anchor says.
The video then cuts to “John Gleason” at the site in front of a house with fake fire fighters and SWAT officers swarming the area.
“This is the scene of an intensive investigation into the operations of an extremist group reportedly planning a series of terrorist attacks on U.S. cities,” Gleason says. “Details are sketchy, but allegedly the militia was using this house to store a cache of military weapons.”
While he says this, an image of an officer dressed in explosive-proof gear is shown heading into the house.
Gleason then says that the FBI and “other agencies” are on the scene, and that police raided the house of two men for “illegal possession of firearms, but they apparently found more than they were bargaining for.” As Gleason says this, SWAT officers are shown hauling two typical looking men from the house.
Here’s the video.
This is sickening. This is propaganda in its dirtiest form, and it’s paid for by those it attempts to demonize.
