Ohio National Guard Drills For Terror Attack By Pro-Gun “Right-Wing Terrorists”
The Ohio National Guard is preparing for a terror attack orchestrated by pro-gun “right-wing terrorists,” because that’s “the reality of the world we live in.” : No, really:
Documents from an Ohio National Guard (ONG) training drill conducted last January reveal the details of a mock disaster: where Second Amendment supporters with “anti-government” opinions were portrayed as domestic terrorists.
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.
I’d like to say this is stunning, but it isn’t. : Who are they going to target? : Muslims? : They’d get labeled Islamophobes?
They target right wingers because it’s safer for them.
How’s that for irony?
