We Have Met the Enemy, and He is Us.
Well, yet another example of the military choosing to envisage terrorism coming from a home grown source, this time from people who have the temerity to believe the Second Amendment says what it says:
The ONG 52nd Civil Support Team training scenario involved a plot from local school district employees to use biological weapons in order to advance their beliefs about “protecting Gun Rights and Second Amendment rights.”
Portsmouth Chief of Police Bill Raisin told NBC 3 WSAZ-TV in Huntington, West Virginia that the drill accurately represented “the reality of the world we live in,” adding that such training “helps us all be prepared.”
Internal ONG documents provided to Media Trackers after repeated delays provide further context to what WSAZ-TV reported last winter.
In the disaster-preparedness scenario, two Portsmouth Junior High School employees poisoned school lunches with mustard gas, acting on orders from white-nationalist leader William Pierce.
The ONG team discovered biological weapons being produced in the school, requiring activation of containment and decontamination procedures.
Participants in the disaster drill located documents expressing the school employees’ “anti-government” sentiments, as well as a note identifying Pierce as the fictional right-wing terrorists’ leader.
ONG’s 52nd Civil Support Unit participated in a similar drill involving left-wing terrorists with Athens County first responders last year; public officials apologized for that training the next day in response to complaints from local environmentalist groups.
No apology to Ohioans who supported limited government and the Second Amendment appears to be forthcoming.
Go here to Media Trackers to read the rest. The lengths that our military in the Age of Obama will go to in order to ignore that the number one threat we face today is terrorism from jihadists! Note that last year this Ohio National Guard unit had fictional left wing terrorists involved and promptly apologized when environmentalist groups complained. In the Age of Obama it is open season on conservatives however, so the ONG 52nd Civil Support Unit assumed that villains portrayed as supporters of the Second Amendment would be a safe substitute. I guess there is a logic to that. Consider the fuss the people who believed in the Second Amendment originally helped kick up with their idea that “to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” In the Age of Obama I can understand how that is a deeply subversive doctrine.
