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.
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.
