An abandoned U-Haul on a bridge in New York
On a Greyhound bus in New Hampshire
What the f’n hell is going on here?! Someone trying to recreate 9/11 AND the OKC Bombing? What is this going on in this country? And why isn’t the government doing more to stop such attempts? Or are they doing more and it’s just not being reported because some “gatekeeper” at a news outlet decided that we should just be scared out of our wits and blame possibly innocent people just because of their ethnic heritage?
Why can’t we the people ask questions of our government officials without getting reguritated bullshit from them?
Who is telling/ordering/influencing these people (whoever they are, be they foreign born or native born) to put fertilizer in an SUV and park it in Times Square? Or in a rent-a-truck on a bridge? Or calling 911 from a bus in New England to say there’s a bomb aboard? Because I have no doubt that these people aren’t acting on their own. Someone had to plant an idea in their mind that possibly killing innocent people was a good idea.
Yet we have to still go through metal detectors and x-ray machines at the airport before we get on a plane.
This September, it will have been nine years since 9/11, and 15 years last month since the Murrah Building Bombing here in Oklahoma City. Haven’t we learned anything about terrorism, except maybe to racially profile people who are either A) from the Middle East of are of Middle Eastern descent (they could have been born here), or B) or some raving lunatic from a “militia” wanting to teach the government a lesson a la Timothy McVeigh?
I feel safe here. I know there are not “terrorists” lurking around every corner, and not every Ryder or U-Haul truck is packed with enough explosive power to bring down an entire building and the entire block that surrounds it. That’s what the media would like you to believe, but I know better. I know there are things they are delibrately leaving out.
How about giving us all the pertinent details and let us decide? When did someone decide that treating us like mushrooms (being kept in the dark and fed bullshit) was a wonderful idea? Unfortunately, media “gatekeeping” has been going on for a long, long time. They’re saying, basically, that you (the viewer, reader, listener) will only know what we want you to know, and you’ll like it.
Meanwhile, things just keep getting weirder and weirder in the good ole U.S. of A.
I’m jus’ saying is all…
