In case you have not heard, Obama’s stormtroopers in the Ohio National Guard have been making preparations to mobilize against innocent Second Amendment-loving citizens. In a recent drill, the National Guard enacted mock scenario as part of a counterterrorism training exercise in which, as WSAZ describes it:
[box type=”shadow”]The make-believe scenario is timely. Two school employees who are disgruntled over the government’s interpretation of the Second Amendment, plot to use chemical, biological and radiological agents against members of the local community.[/box]
The Scioto County first responders and the Ohio Army National Guard 52nd Civil Support Unit tackled this appalling scenario head-on–and the right wing is losing its collective mind. It’s insane to think that “Second Amendment supporters,” as they often call themselves would ever consider doing anything violent as a result of their inability to understand the Constitution. After all, it’s not like they are trying to build F#$%ING DEATH RAYS or anything. Besides, we know only Muslims commit acts of terrorism…right?
Despite that the fictional terrorists were associated with a neo-Nazi leader rather than the Tea Party, that little fact does little to diminish the paranoid, right-wing lunacy surrounding the counterterrorism exercise. The Stupid Party isn’t too concerned that the 52nd Civil Support team was drilling in assisting civilian agencies’ response to chemical and biological weapons.
Of course it’s much easier to simply claim that the “terrorists” are gun-toting, Bible-banging, Second Amendmenting good guys who have loved their country since Jesus wrote the Constitution in 2009. All over the “white wing” we have been hearing report after report of Obama’s stormtroopers practicing armed opposition to people who love their guns since mediatrackers first reported this atrocity.
Conveniently ignoring that the teachers were following orders from a white nationalist leader to poison students in an effort to advance a pro-Second Amendment agenda and that the exercise dealt with containment and decontamination, Buckeye Firearms Association spokesman Chad Baus told MediaTrackers “It is a scary day indeed when law enforcement are being trained that Second Amendment advocates are the enemy.” He did not explain in what manner the invented terrorists were run-of-the-mill “Second Amendment advocates.”
Right-wingers’ willingness to identify with easily identifiable neo-Nazi terrorists in an effort to demonize the government is, unfortunately, the reality. Will we see this dangerous ideology morph into actual support of the actions fictionally taken by the fictional teachers? Well, the government is practicing a scenario that deals with assisting the victims, hasn’t it?
Read the plans for the drill, and decide for yourself: is the government preparing to deal with a chemical and biological attack in the name of preparedness, or is it attempting to push an anti-gun agenda?
