Roll eyes FEMA camps, again!

Saw this on tumblr. Presented without comment.

Quote:
No, this isn’t an anime post, and I hope our followers, and the other runners of this blog, will forgive me for posting “politics” here.

This is too serious though, and with 3400 followers, you are my best audience.

i *am* sorry if people are sick of hearing about politics. but politics or not, this is ****ing scary: fema detainment camps are going live. FEMA DETENTION/DETAINMENT CAMPS. IN AMERICA. ALL FIFTY STATES. this is following the bill passed by the senate in a 93 to 7 vote that the government can, at it’s discretion, arrest any american citizen at any time without trial or reason, and hold them indefinitely.
sure, obama says he’ll veto, but with a 2/3+ approval in senate, the veto will be over-ridden. so, they’ve passed the bill to detain us indefinitely, and now they’re activating the detention camps, all shortly after occupy wallstreet starts.
google fema detainment camps, google the NDAA bill. google what occupy wallstreet stands for. please please please, research for yourself online what is going on in america right now. this is very very serious, and very very scary. don’t think about this as politics, don’t use that as an excuse to ignore this kind of thing. i’m not asking anyone to agree with me, or declare themselves as a 99%, i’m just asking everyone that reads this post to EDUCATE THEMSELVES on the shit that’s happening right now. read up on what’s going on and draw your own conclusions, but for pete’s sake, EDUCATE YOURSELF.

info on the NDAA bill
occupy wallstreet’s message & goals
pretty graphics to help perspective a bit
breaking news (12/06/2011) on FEMA camps going live
also, this alex jones video talking about the fema camps
a message from anonymous about the global situation right now


this is no longer about politics - this is literally about our freedoms & liberties.

AS AN EXAMPLE: say you have a pen pal in iraq, that can be labeled as “suspected terrorism” - off to fema camps you go, indefinitely, no lawyer, no family visits, no guarantee of leaving.

say you put up a tweet: “i don’t like the president” — bam, suspected terrorism - off to fema camps you go.

say you…. oh, have more than 6 days worth of food in your house - SUSPECTED TERRORISM, OFF TO FEMA WITH YOU. (yes, the last one is true, along with “missing fingers” or looking muslim, etc, check it here)

IF YOU CAN REBLOG A CAT LICKING IT’S LIPS, PLEASE REBLOG SOMETHING LIKE THIS. Seriously. This is your life & your freedom. Spread the word, educate yourself, friends & family.

United States

Plus some dependencies and some alternately defined areas like the District of Columbia (Washington DC), Puerto Rico, and Guam. But they aren't states.

I did search for the NDAA Bill or more precisely H.R. 1960: National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014. I did not have a week or two the read and understand it, but did a quick search. The only mention of FEMA is to add the words "it appears" in section 1804. The only thing it has on detention or imprisonment has the do with facility like Guantanamo Gay or the Reporting of US citizens in military detention (See Sec. 1080). Of course what this might be happening is the bill did not make any changes regarding pervious complaints this person had whether real or not.

All the other thing list as things to check, I would not trust touching with a thirty-nine and a half foot pole.

Considering it mentions breaking news from 2011, and Occupy Wall Street, which also happened in 2011, I think it isn't referring to a 2014 bill.

They really need to make some updates before circulating this stuff. It's like they aren't even trying.

I was having a lot of trouble typing the word "bay" this morning and after what seam like the tenth try spell check accepted it. But it looks like I should have double checked the word to make sure it was the right one.

Anyway I'm sure there are plenty of people that think a homosexual detainment camp and correctional training would be a good thing.

Is this for tent camping or RV camping? I want to go camping with my family this summer, and I would prefer a detention setting without so many big loud RVs.

I've seen that they made it illegal to be homeless in Columbia, South Carolina. They give you the option of going to jail or a FEMA camp. Is this true? Everything in the official papers calls it a 240 person "shelter" But you can't leave unless you schedule a van to shuttle you out. Other people are calling it a FEMA camp, but I can't find any source that verifies that it is actually run by FEMA.

The Skeptoid Podcast has a good summary of the whole 'FEMA Camp' myth complex:

The plan to criminalize homelessness didn't last a month.

Oh, and (unless FEMA has a department known as "Christ Central Ministries") the shelter isn't run by FEMA at all.

The "50 states" are quite patently, an illusion. The united States, as an entity, has been secretly divided into six "parliamentary discretionary zones." Each of these secret zones is run by a covert shadow government headed by specially appointed "Chancellor of special circumstances and developments." Everybody knows this, and besides, it's true. I'm up for a term as CSCD in zone 3 next year.
