I’ve alluded to this briefly before, but now it’s really sticking in my craw, since news arrived that Obama’s Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano a/k/a “The Lesbionic Woman” is taking her “see something, say something” BS to hockey fans.
When They Say This . . .
They Really Mean This . . .
I love hockey and once represented some NHL players. And I also support encouraging citizens to report strange behavior by suspects–who, in this case, should generally be those of the Middle Easter and Muslim kind, despite the Homeland Security BS that they are all White guys.
But the problem is this: J-No’s and DHS’ “see something, say something” campaign is smoke and mirrors. What they really mean is, if you see something, don’t say a thing because we’ll ignore you and do nothing, or treat you like a crazy bigot Islamophobe.
They encourage private citizens to say something when they see something, but then, they ignore the citizens’ reports and go have a Ramadan iftar dinner with the organized representatives of the suspects (instead of a pizza party for the citizens who did their duty and reported the suspicious activity). They encourage private citizens to say something when they see something, but then ridicule the hell out of the people making the reports and call them “bigoted.” The way DHS (and the FBI) treats people who say something is more like, “If you see something, keep it to yourself, unless it’s about people who tell the truth about Islam and are ‘right-wing’ bigots.” Or, “If you see something, don’t snitch . . . unless it’s about a White dude who likes to go hunting and opposed Obamacare.”
So, whenever I see the “see something, say something” BS, my thought is for a giant STFU in response. If we actually wanted to encourage private citizens to say something and stop potential terrorist activity, we’d take those reports a heck of a lot more seriously and we’d celebrate them for making the reports, rather than shrugging off their reports as, “nothing to see here, move along.”
It’s a New Year’s resolution Janet Napolitano and her crony-minions should make but won’t. And the iftar dinners will continue.
As I always say, America is like the Adam Ant hit from the ’80s: Desperate But NOT Serious.
