Terrorism. ter·ror·ism /ˈterəˌrizəm/, Noun, The use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.
Now that we’ve defined the term “terrorism,” let’s determine who the terrorists are.
Could they be a bunch of bearded men in turbans shouting “Allahu Akbar”? Sure.
But could they also be your local police force?
This story comes out of El Paso, Texas. It’s a bit of “old news” having been reported back in May of 2012, however it’s still relevant. KFOXTV reports:
At 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, the students and teachers at Eastlake High School were told to vacate the hallways and lock down in their classrooms. According to students and parents, gunshots and screams were heard. The SWAT team was seen entering the school.
All of this was an “active shooter” drill. A case of training for domestic terrorism.
Training. At a school. Where children were present. Where teachers were terrified, and even one student almost experienced a full-blown asthma attack when he heard the gunshots.
Really? Let’s prepare to fight terrorism by… terrifying an entire school. Not to mention all of their parents, who were getting text messages:
Stephanie Belcher has a 15-year-old son enrolled in Eastlake. She said she got a text message from her son that scared her.
“He said, ‘I’m not kidding. There’s gunshots and people screaming and we were locked in a storage closet,'” Belcher said.
This, folks, is what your government is up to.
