Icon27 FEMA internment camps

Comment: Where are the FEMA internment camps located? Why do they have them? Are they planning to imprision anyone who does not agree with the PLANS for this country? Especially those with guns. Our closest one here in NW FL is at Eglin AFB.

Looks like a lot of state and federal government owned locations. Not sure why they're thought of as internment camps. They would be locations which would be advantageous for the feeding and care of large populations of displaced persons, perhaps disaster evacuees, or those fleeing the zombie hordes.

the one they have listed in Louisiana is about 150 miles from the actual camp. See camp livingston. It's not in Livingston.

They also left out Camp Beauregard, where we really did put people up after the hurricanes.

I do see the SeaTac International Airport is now missing from the list. Since it has a police station under it and cell to boot. I was to be used to hold people before forced on planes to be deported as slaves.

I don't know if Sand Point Navel Base would be a valid location any more. I was used during the WTO riot because it was turned over to the State and nothing had been do with most of it at the time. I believed that has changed now.

Hmmm...

So, basically, the thinking is that they are going to round up political prisoners and stick them in Eglin, the command center of the USAF's special operations? 'Cause that's where you want the political prisoners, right there where the Air Force tests and trains it's most hush-hush stuff outside of NORAD.

And why is FEMA in charge? Can't the USAF special operations take care of its own prisoners?

But then, practicality and conspiracy never seem to go together.

But see, that's one of the LAST places you'd expect to find a concentration camp for political prisoners. It's brilliant!

The law that created the facilities, commonly referred to as FEMA Camps, calls them National Emergency Centers. That law states their purpose is, among other things, "to provide temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster."

Those of us who have played Deus Ex: Human Revolution know better, of course.

Plus, I've heard from a friend of a friend that FEMA has ordered extra Box Guards. He saw the shipping manifests from Page Industries, honest.

Do we get to choose which FEMA Internment Camp that we get sent to? b I wouldn't mind getting sent to the one in Honolulu if its not too much trouble.

I am truly disappointed in hir very disappointed. Any true conspiracy theorist worth their salt wouldn't leave out Area 51! Don't they read their anti-government literature? There is something going on up there!


So for as many FEMA detention facilities as there are, wouldn't we see even a slight decrease in the population of people being sent there? Maybe people being rounded up and carted away or better yet just "disappearing into the night?" Is our government really so lazy as to build these facilities and not populate them? That is a rhetorical question. But then again silly me, I forgot reason and the average conspiracy theorist do not go hand in hand in this world.

The idea isn't to send people there slowly. It's to quickly declare martial law and immediately start rounding up subversives to send there in one swoop. Ever since the 90s I've been hearing that such a move is just around the corner. Strange how just around the corner has been happening for nearly 20 years........

D'oh!

One crazy, paranoid individual who says dogmatically that FEMA emergency center are internment camps is Texe Marrs. This nut also refers to them as "concentration camps." He once wrote a book entitled Concentration Camps in America. He is one of those who believes that these emergency centers will one days be used to round up subversives who disagree with "Uncle Sam." He primarily thinks that these center will one day be used by "the Antichrist" during the so-called Tribulation Period which is supposed to happen some time in our lifetime. He believes, as does Hal Lindsey, that we are living in the "end times" shortly before the Second Coming of Christ.

Funny how some folks have been sure we are living in the "end times" roughly ever since The Book of Revelations was written.
