New Homeland Security Video Depicts US Citizens as Terrorists…and Encourages You to Snitch on Them

126

Homeland Security’s “See Something, Say Something” campaign produced several ridiculously awful videos encouraging people to snitch on anyone acting out of the ordinary. This last video is about “terrorism” but we see no turban-wearing angry Arabs in there (didn’t Hollywood teach us they that were all terrorists?). Nope, we’re looking at regular-ol-Walmart-dwelling Bob from Ohio as a potential terrorist now.

The police-state mentality promoted in the video encourages people to look  for and to report suspicious activities such as: using a cellphone camera, wearing a backpack or writing on a piece of paper. Am I exaggerating? Sadely, barely.

We all need to be more like this lady: not minding our own business, watching other people disapprovingly and always ready to snitch.

Needless to say, this kind of behavior was promoted in Mussolini’s, Hitler’s and Franco’s dictatorial police-state regimes. The extension of the already bogus war on terrorism to include US citizens was part of the plan all along, hence the unconstitutional PATRIOT act (which was recently renewed and gave the Government the right to spy on citizens).

So, without further ado, here’s this masterpiece of suspenseful situations and award-winning acting.

Lol seriously anonymous should just spam these things. "uhh hello.. theres a person who is taking photos…in such and such.. he is wearing a white t-shirt and jeans.. it seems suspicious that he feels it's necessary to take photos" "uhh hi.. yes there is a person who is grinding metal at his home.. maybe he's making a bomb." "hello.. there's a person talking on the phone and he's sitting near the ATM machine.. and even though it's 8:43AM it seems suspicious he's sitting there.. maybe he's trying to rob the bank when it opens." "uhh.. hi, yes–there is a guy… Read more »

I generally follow what I read on this site, however this article made me pause. First, to imply "we’re looking at regular-ol-Walmart-dwelling Bob from Ohio as a potential terrorist" as being absolutely wrong is absurd. It is a fact that any race/ nationality/ sex can possibly be related to terrorist activity. Also, nothing in the video I feel goes beyond common sense besides possibly the last one with the subway. I would hope people would report all of those activities anyways, and half of them are company security related anyways, i.e. unknown person in radioactive area. The Norway shootings show… Read more »

During the Soviet Union and other communist countries in the Eastern Europe or Warsaw Pact Allies the secret police had eyes everywhere. It started during late 30's (1937) and it got the name The Great Terror. History always repeats itself. It is up to us if we let it. People were so afraid of talking even with their own relatives not to be reported to the secret police and then deported to the Gulags (forced labor in concentration camps). This is not a joke or a Hollywood Movie, this was reality for millions of people. Entire families were deported in… Read more »

This is a great way for wackos to harrass people. Also gives the cops a license to abuse you. Some idiot called the cops on me in the middle of the day because I was driving slow on a back road the idiot cops came and harrased me and even went so far as to put me in shackles and chains and threw me in jail. I had no traffic infraction and no alcohol in my system yet these cowboys were so proud of themselves. No lawyer would help me sue them either because they were afraid of retaliation by… Read more »

"The police-state mentality promoted in the video encourages people to look for and to report suspicious activities such as: using a cellphone camera, wearing a backpack or writing on a piece of paper." Yeah, that's not going to work. I happen to live in a college town. College kids have cellphone cameras to take drunken pictures of their friends, and I've met kids as young as 8 who had cell phones with cameras. Many people, students, professors, and otherwise, use backpacks to carry their stuff around. As for writing on pieces of paper, I work in a library. Of course… Read more »

Two complete divas trying to out-do each other. Not at all entertaining.

Actually using a cellphone camera CAN make people think something is wrong. College life doesn't represent what a normal working life is like. I worked in a bookstore for a year between my soph and junior year and if you pulled out a phone and started taking pictures of things in the store, you would be noticed and watched. They had a very good reason to watch people, too. The baristas at the cafe often had unwanted attention from males. They caught quite a few men snapping photos of them with phones. They also had an issues with men trying… Read more »

Is people like VC that advocates human rights, freedom…. Look at Britain now, her citizens are asking the police to exercise more control to using tear gas and plastic rounds. If our country loses its authority, this is what is going to happen to U.S eventually. People rioting and looting without control. I rather have a police-state any day than have such incidents from happening. Oh ya, not forgetting most of the rioters are locals.

This is obvious propaganda. It should be titled "Help the government turn our country into a police state." After hearing the video mention that these reports should not be made based on ethnicity, I started over and noticed a few things. All of the people reporting the suspicious activity were of every ethnicity except white. All of the "terrorists" were white, and 90% of those in power were white. I'm not sure of the significance of this other than steering the country away from the islamic boogeyman and onto the white or fellow american boogeyman. Spy on your neighbors taking… Read more »

Seriously guys, I don't find anything seriously wrong with this video. Yes, the acting could be improved, but after what happened to Norway recently, you can't deny that terrorist do live among our society, be it a White or Black among us. This video is simply advocating higher vigilance among our surronding, which is perfectly fine. There have been many real life cases, in which vigilant citizens(not the author here) spotted on suspicious character and actually alerted the authorities which prevented an attack from happening. I do enjoy the articles here at VC. However, the comments here are sometimes too… Read more »

Thanks Homeland security

Next time I see a tall male in a building wearing Al Capone clothing and sunglasses, I'll yell at him about the bag he dropped in a glaringly obvious location. Then I'll give you a call.

So Homeland Security doesn't have spell check? "Aquiring?" Is this video even real?

The fact that the worst threat to this country comes from its own government should come as no surprise to those with understanding. Every great civilization or empire in human history has eventually come to an end,and was destroyed not by a foreign power but by its own devices. America, im afraid will be no different. The truth is that if the NWO terrorists are to advance their agenda for the world they cannot have a true existing super power in the way. Thats why they will continue to do everything they can to undermine and diminish this country, including… Read more »

Why are all terrorists in hoodie??

5 years 1 month ago

here's an idea, everyone starts calling in and reporting one suspicion after another. Car with tinted windows drives by, call 911. Man with briefcase…911, my wife is acting all weird again..well that's suspicious too, why not. Everyone does that for a couple days and they'll have to come up with some better instructions than "see something say something."

It makes you think that the Oslo terrorism seems to support the idea that we all should snitch and tell if we see something weird or a person from our own country can do such a thing. I have no idea if that terrourism act is part of the scaring people plan or if it was really just a crazy guy…

This is funny, the terrorists are telling us who the terrorists are. Who has caused the most harm and damage to our liberty and freedom? Not al-Qaeda, not the Taliban. The united states government is the most deadly, destructive, dangerous, harmful, oppressive, criminally insane cartel that has ever polluted this planet. THEY are the terrorists. The ones that swore an oath, the ones we put our trust in to protect and defend our constitutional rights, are the exact ones that are destroying America, our freedom, our liberty, our country.

Wow, I didn't realize how much danger was around me before. I just want to warn every one right now, if you are wearing black sunglasses or all black clothing, expect me to report you. I just want to keep the USA a safe country.

OK, first thing to remember is that YOU are the snitch. Got that? Good. It's YOUR job to watch for white males bearing backpacks who sneak around Federal buildings, malls and other places with "bombs." It's not your job to profile anyone….unless they are white males. (As the video instructs you to do, law enforcement will "take it from there.") Remember. Be vigilant. Report any and all suspicious activity of these white males to those in charge. Not sure about white male children but, hey, if they are carrying a backpack and acting suspicious, report them too. This should keep… Read more »
