|"What goes up must come down ..."|
So, I made it a standalone post for now, but later on it may eventually become the first post in a new series detailing additional dynamics of the corruption of power (About Toxins Of Power).
What gave me pause was that the individual who is the subject of today's post has been featured in Dredd Blog posts in the past.
That is because he described "a coup" and "a policy coup" that took place in the U.S.eh? following 9/11 (e.g. A Tale of Coup Cities - 8).
At any rate, he has evidently joined the coup that he previously spoke of unfavorably.
The video at the bottom of the post presents the picture.
Commentary by other blogs detail some of the internet social media backlash (The Intercept: Wesley Clark wants WW II style internment camps, Mediaite: or re-education camps, Zero Hedge - same, Salon - same, TPM - same).
The real rub here comes because General Clark would have "lawyers and politicians" decide who is "radicalized" and "against the U.S." at a time when there are no valid legal definitions for those concepts (Rethinking Radicalization, PDF).
So, the general seems to have lost his marbles since being claimed by Blackstone (Our People).
Blackstone is one cog in the private empire's labyrinth of gears (Our Offices).
See you in the camps:
"The greatest reaction from government officials, who certainly know that disruption and upheaval are coming, is to spy on the citizens now as they prepare to triage them in detention camps in the future ..." (Weekend Rebel Science Excursion - 32)What if they were to conclude that the Dredd Blog post "Greenland & Antarctica Invade The United States" is a radicalized, anti-American manifesto?
"A new report by the U.S. Army War College talks about the possibility of Pentagon resources and troops being used should the economic crisis lead to civil unrest, such as protests against businesses and government or runs on beleaguered banks.
“Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security,” said the War College report.
The study says economic collapse, terrorism and loss of legal order are among possible domestic shocks that might require military action within the U.S." (The 1% May Face The Wrath of Sea Level Rise First).
Anyone still thinking "they wouldn't dare"?
Future internment camp general?
