I saw this story the other day. ABC is bringing to the masses a reality based show called “Homeland Security USA”. As executive producer Arnold Shapiro states ““We’re showing everyday heroes who are risking their lives to protect us,”.
Pretty much a show like “COPS”, but with our kind and loving Federal Government. I can already hear the “Arm-Chair Quarterbacks” cheering away when these people show up at the wrong door, shoot Grandma and her dog. And at the end of it, the voice over guy and everyone else watching will say “They were just doing their job, and don’t forget, this is for National Security”.
Is this show going to show how the BATF uses entrapment to go after non-criminals? Is it going to show how the FBI breaks it’s own laws? Is it going to show how SWAT Teams do a no knock raid on the wrong house? Is it going to show how TSA officials make a woman take her Nipple Rings out, all in the name of “National Security”?And on top of this, is it going to show how the Border Patrol are beholden to Bureaucratic jargon from the morons over in Washington DC?
Mrs. Malkin summs it up well..”It will be interesting to see how much of the open-borders agenda creeps into this”
Would also add to that, I wonder how much of the creeping Militarization will show up in this show? With news that 20,000 US Soldiers will be deployed inside America, it makes you wonder if this show is in place to make all of this look normal. I don’t know about any of you, but seeing a US Soldier on Main Street USA in uniform with a machine gun doesn’t make me feel safe one bit.
So will you be a “Great American” and watch the Government save the day? Because if you don’t, the Terrorist Will Win.
