The Amerikan Gestapo Wants You (To Snitch)

An article on Infowars tells us about New York’s “Homeland Security” who suggest that people should snitch on preppers as potential terrorists, such as those who buy “MREs (Meals Ready to Eat), flashlights, weather proof ammunition,” which they erroneously assert are examples of “suspicious activities.” The store owner featured in the story tore down a sign posted on the window by a NY state trooper advising people to turn in innocent shoppers who have harmed no one. Well, good for the store owner for tearing down the sign.

Now, I have read about too many innocent people being the targets of “anonymous tips” to police for no good reason. If you have experienced an unexpected and unwanted visit by government police because someone contacted them about your buying everyday items at the store, or because of withdrawing a certain amount of cash from your own bank account, or because of homeschooling your kids that the neighbors disapprove of, or because of letting your kids play outside unsupervised, then perhaps now is the time for such victims of Amerikan stasi to fight back. Perhaps victims need to turn the tables on those squealers, those nosy-Nazi neighbors, and use the very same government police apparatus against them. And that would mean, if someone does cause police to visit you for no good reason, have the harassing stasi arrested and charged with endangerment, false accusation, causing emotional distress, etc. To sic the police on an innocent person who has not shown any indication of criminality or threat would be a severe endangerment to that victim.

I know, I know. I seem to be suggesting to make use of the government police, don’t I? Well, perhaps we can view that as a defensive measure for those who believe in justice, and seeing that something be done about the perpetrators of criminally siccing police on innocent people. But can you imagine seeing Gladys Kravitz next door getting a taste of her own medicine? I know I can. Am I being too harsh here? Am I being unreasonable?

And also, perhaps the government agents, a.k.a. pigs who encourage neighbor-stasi criminality should themselves be charged with incitement.

I think the sicko Rulers may actually have been studying Nazi Germany as a model to follow, believe it or not. For example, as historian Robert Gellately, author of Backing Hitler: Consent and Coercion in Nazi Germany noted on his Florida State University bio page:

“There were relatively few secret police, and most were just processing the information coming in. I had found a shocking fact. It wasn’t the secret police who were doing this wide-scale surveillance and hiding on every street corner. It was the ordinary German people who were informing on their neighbors.”

. . .

As he was uncovering who was acting as the Gestapo’s unsolicited agents, (Gellately) also began to discern what motivated neighbor to inform on neighbor. The surviving myth told the story of informers who were motivated either by a commitment to the Third Reich or by a fear of authority.

But the motives Gellately found were banal—greed, jealousy, and petty differences.

He found cases of partners in business turning in associates to gain full ownership; jealous boyfriends informing on rival suitors; neighbors betraying entire families who chronically left shared bathrooms unclean or who occupied desirable apartments.

And then there were those who informed because for the first time in their lives someone in authority would listen to them and value what they said.

So really, a good way for the U.S. Gestapo to make unsuspecting people feel “important” is to get them to snitch on their neighbors. (And I think the Rulers are also sadists who enjoy seeing neighbors turning on one another.)
