DHS Video Characterizes White Americans as Most Likely Terrorists
by Paul Joseph Watson | Big Sis fear campaign continues, but Americans are just as likely to be killed by peanut allergies than they are in terrorist attacks.
A new promotional video released by the Department of Homeland Security characterizes white middle class Americans as the most likely terrorists, as Big Sis continues its relentless drive to cement the myth that mad bombers are hiding around every corner, when in reality Americans are just as likely to be killed by lightning strikes or peanut allergies.
The video is part of Homeland Security’s $10 million dollar “See Something, Say Something” program that encourages Americans to report “suspicious activity,” which in every case throughout history has been a trait of oppressive, dictatorial regimes.
In the course of the 10 minute clip, a myriad of different behaviors are characterized as terrorism, including opposing surveillance, using a video camera, talking to police officers, wearing hoodies, driving vans, writing on a piece of paper, and using a cell phone recording application.
Despite encouraging viewers not to pay attention to a person’s race in determining whether or not they may be a terrorist, almost all of the scenarios in the clip proceed to portray white people as the most likely terrorists. Bizarrely, nearly every single one of the “patriotic” Americans who reports on their fellow citizen is either black, Asian or Arab. Imagine if the video had portrayed every terrorist as an Arab and every patriotic snoop as white, there’d be an outcry and rightly so, but this strange reversal must have been deliberate on the part of the DHS, but why? Is this merely political correctness taken to the extreme or is something deeper at work?
Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the DHS’ own internal documents list predominantly white conservative groups as the most likely terrorists, such as Ron Paul supporters, gun owners, gold bullion enthusiasts, and a myriad of other comparatively banal political interests that are largely the domain of white middle class Americans.
This has little to do with the color of a person’s skin, and everything to do with the fact that white, middle class Americans are the biggest roadblock when it comes to Big Sis expanding its control over every facet of American society.
It’s plain to see that very little of the budget for this video went towards paying for decent actors, but perhaps it’s fitting that the participants were about as believable as Santa and his elves, because the notion that terrorists are hovering around every underground parking lot waiting to blow up federal buildings is demonstrably false.
As Ohio University’s John Mueller has documented, the likelihood of actually being a victim of terrorism is infinitesimally small, and only highlights how such threats are hyperbolically exaggerated for political purposes.
Figures collected by Mueller clearly show that Americans are just as likely to be killed by lightning strikes, accident-causing deer, or severe allergic reactions to peanuts.
But the facts don’t matter for a federal agency whose primary function is to manufacture fear to keep Americans under control and submissive to the fact that their economic futures and their constitutional rights are being torn to shreds by their own government while it points to a contrived outside threat as a convenient distraction.
“At its core, the video is filled with scenes of ordinary citizens spying on each other and alerting the authorities to their compatriots’ suspicious deeds,” writes Simon Black. In my favorite scene, a woman calls the police after snooping over the shoulder of a young man typing away on his smartphone.”
Black notes that such videos are solely aimed at reinforcing ignorance, hate and fear for those who still live in darkness and are completely unaware of the real agenda behind Homeland Security’s “see something, say something” charade.
But what is that agenda?
No matter where you look, from East Germany, to Communist Russia, to Nazi Germany, historically governments who encourage their own citizens to report on each other do so not for any genuine safety concerns or presumed benefits to security, but in order to create an authoritarian police state that coerces the people into policing each other’s behavior and thoughts.
As Robert Gellately of Florida State University has highlighted, Germans under Hitler denounced their neighbors and friends not because they genuinely believed them to be a security threat, but because they expected to selfishly benefit from doing so, both financially, socially and psychologically via a pavlovian need to be rewarded by their masters for their obedience.
At the height of its influence around one in seven of the East German population was an informant for the Stasi. As in Nazi Germany, the creation of an informant system was wholly centered around identifying political dissidents and those with grievances against the state, and had little or nothing to do with genuine security concerns.
This is the kind of society the Department of Homeland Security is, whether deliberately or inadvertently, recreating in 21st century America. It is about as far removed as you can possibly get from the vision the founders of the nation had in mind when they created the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence.

This really shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. All anyone needs to do is watch television. White men are falsely depicted as weak, out of touch morons that couldn’t tie their shoes without a woman or minority there to show them how.
Concerning the Norwegian incident, I find it remarkable that the terrorist's mindset mimics that of an Al Queda operative. He is bombing his own people; essentially sacrificing them for a greater cause: that of "cleansing" the foreigners from his country. The analyst Michael Scheuer has said the motives of Al Queda are not hatred of us for our liberties or societal norms, but simple hatred of out presence in their country and specifically our military presence in their sacred lands. The motivation is a variant of xenophobia and thus the conclusion that Al Queda is really a deeply conservative movement deserves thought. We are fighting the people in those countries who resisted Communism successfully and who will never back down no matter how long we think we will "stay". I am at a loss as to the purpose of the Afghan war and have heard no convincing apologetic for it.
The Afghan war is for securing pipelines. That is all. The Soviets tried the same during the 80′s, but failed.
Regarding the Norwegian incident: we don't know what the facts are except what we are told by the main stream media. The media seems to manufacture a link between extreme-right politics and "nut jobs"…
For all we really know, this mass-murderer could have been a Jewish extremist.
Something to ponder: What the establishment really fears is not the Tea Party, RNC, dept ceiling, or anything like that. What they really fear, what keeps them up at night, is that whites will band together for their common interests (which frankly is what the Tea Party did, except respectable conservatives can never admit this, and thus they seek far and wide for black faces). They fear anything explicitly white. So in a sense, labeling whites as terrorists, as the DHS did, shows their inner thoughts.
I believe that what happened in Oslo today was the response of Homeland Security to this article, others like it and the quick uproar that grew about this latest video by DHS.
In fact, today I believe is the day that Barack Obama declared war on all the White Christians of the planet. He chose today to give more privileges to the gays and lesbians in the military, and the gay and lesbian culture as a whole.
Following the Oslo attacks NASDAQ went up as soon as the news was announced at 9:29 am EST, a minute after the attack. I am not surprised.
According to the DHS now whites are “terrorists”. PBS and all the other channels were happy to report that the “terrorist” was a white blond-haired person.
Apparently Secretary Napster sees no need for volunteer spies at the border.
Well if white college kids ever declare Jihad on America, as this video suggests, we should all be on the lookout!
This article is excellent and makes a very good point.
I just watched a new "documentary" on Hitler and it pointed out how the Third Reich encouraged citizens to spy and snitch on other citizens.
I think I’m gonna report Washington D.C and the Federal Reserve to the DHS. I am sensing some terror activity their. Strange… I think they forgot to add Ben Bernanke to the list.
lets all be good little "Americans" and report our next door neighbor for walking out of his house with sunglasses because that is a very dangerous act of terror.
This is very disturbing. I was harassed by a black male TSA worker a few weeks ago going through security. He came from checking IDs to the rolling Xray belt to make sure my belt and shoes were "just so." He didn't like the way I put my shoes in the tray and showed me how to do it properly, with attitude. I ingored him as if he didn't exist, but I know deep down he has hatred towards strong white men. I can see it in their eyes.
Mr. Johsnon, sir, we need leadership. I like Thomas Jefferson too; we need someone of his mettle for representation.
