NY Homeland Security Encourages Businesses To Snitch On Preppers As Terrorists

The New York State Division of Homeland Security is encouraging businesses to snitch on preppers as terrorists, urging that the purchase of MRE’s, ammunition or flash lights be treated as a suspicious activity.



As the video above illustrates, the LZ Army Navy Surplus store in Auburn, NY received a visit from a state trooper who put up a flyer in the window which encourages customers to call the New York State Terrorism Tips Line, 1-866 SAFE NYS, to report suspicious activity under the mantra of the “See Something, Say Something” campaign.

1-866 SAFE NYS is part of Safeguard New York [2], an NY State counterterrorism program that uses promotional material to encourage citizens to report people for engaging in “suspicious activity….which makes them stand out from others”.

An accompanying letter provided by the state trooper listed such “suspicious activity” as the purchase of MREs (Meals Ready to Eat), flashlights, weather proof ammunition, night vision equipment, match containers, or gas masks.

Given that the tips hotline is also similar in name to the ‘SAFE Act’, recently passed legislation which outlaws the ownership of high capacity magazines and certain semi-automatic weapons in New York, it could also be used to snitch on gun owners.

The owner of the surplus store said that when she saw the sign in the window she immediately tore it down because in her mind the program is merely a way for authorities to compile a list of preppers.

Last week, a report emerged [3] concerning how FBI counterterrorism agents are visiting gun shops in South Carolina to investigate “suspicious purchases” made by people who talk about “big government”.

In 2012, we reported [4] on how the FBI’s Communities Against Terrorism (CAT) program was instructing businesses that banal activities conducted by millions of Americans on a daily basis were potential indications of terrorist activity.

Flyers for the program being handed out to businesses such as Internet cafes even listed paying for a cup of coffee with cash as a suspicious activity.

A flyer aimed at Military Surplus [5] stores also encourages owners to report people who “make bulk purchases of items to include….meals ready to eat”.

The characterization of preppers and storable food advocates as terrorists is particularly ironic given that the Federal Emergency Management Agency spends billions of dollars every year [6] on storable food and encourages Americans under the Resolve to be Ready program to keep a spare food supply on hand in case of emergency.

In 2012, Infowars spoke to a National Guard whistleblower [7] who warned that soldiers were being trained that in the event of civil unrest breaking out, “Doomsday preppers will be treated as terrorists”.

Joe for America [9]Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher crashed on the scene in 2008 when a chance run-in with then candidate Barack Obama allowed Joe to confront the soon-to-be president on his tax-and-spend Socialist philosophy. It was then, in a moment of clarity, Barack Obama let slip his real agenda; “I just want to spread some of that wealth around…” In an effort to inform the public Joe created the Joe for America [9] web site, where you can find commentary, videos and ideas covering a wide array of topics from leading thinkers.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

In some cases, that may well be true also.

  • Itchy yet?
*snort*

Mind you - I find anyone who voluntarily buys MREs to be suspicious. Supporters of the terrorist war on taste buds, at least.
Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.
