But, we shouldn’t worry, right? No need for that, right?

Rep. Alcee L. Hastings, D-Fla., has introduced to the House of Representatives a new bill, H.R. 645, calling for the secretary of homeland security to establish no fewer than six national emergency centers for corralling civilians on military installations.

The proposed bill, which has received little mainstream media attention, appears designed to create the type of detention center that those concerned about use of the military in domestic affairs fear could be used as concentration camps for political dissidents, such as occurred in Nazi Germany. …

This does not surprise me. The intolerance of the extreme left for anyone who is not in lockstep with them is shown throughout history. Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Castro, Pol Pot have all shown that they will do anything to destroy their detractors and consolidate power.

Now, will this bill go anywhere? Probably not. But it shows the contempt that certain factions in government have for citizens. Terrorists and Illegal Aliens have more rights than we do.

As of Jan 20, I consider myself Catholic only.

ALWAYS double check what WND says. It is an Internet tabloid.

[/LIST]Since we have had problems in the not so distant past with natural disasters, this looks reasonable. However, with no cosponsors, it will probably die in committee.

you beat me to the cite and quote by seconds.

The internet conspiracy crowd is in love with the general idea that military bases are about to become prisons for True American Patriots, this mania has gone on for years.

Will you please wake and see the handwriting on the wall. It’s there as plain as day. Especially Number 4. ***“TO MEET OTHER APPROPRIATE NEEDS AS DETERMINED BY THE SECRETARY OF HOMELAND SECURITY.” *** That statement is VERY general and broad. Remember any President can declare a national emergency. Past presidents have signed executive orders giving them wide ranging dictatorial powers in the event of a national emergency or disaster. And since the Secy’ of Homeland Security answers to the President, he or she would have to follow orders.

How do like that name HOMELAND SECURITY? It sounds so, like a totalitarian government agency.

They are coming for you. Soon. You know that maybe this week, next month at the latest, FEMA PoleziSecuritatAmt agents will arrest you on a secret HomSec warrant on charges of Dissent, after kicking in your door at 3:00am.

But don’t worry. They can’t get all of us. For every man like you who is arrested and disappeared, thousands more will step forward until one day, America is wiped clean of this black stain of totalitarianism. I swear on all that is holy you will be avenged!
