Militarized police occupy USA

 

POLICE-STATE-USA-The-Paranoid-Style-of-American-GovernanceBy Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor, for Press TV

 
Iraq has spent more than a decade under US occupation. Afghanistan has been occupied for almost 13 years. More than a million people have been killed, and millions more rendered homeless refugees, by occupation forces.

The Zionist occupation of Palestine, too, is sponsored by the US taxpayer. According to the Christian Science Monitor, the US has spent more than a trillion dollars propping up the Zionist regime, which just murdered roughly 2,000 Palestinians, most of them civilians, during its most recent assault on Gaza.

These are just the most vicious and deadly of the many American-sponsored occupations.

America’s rulers have also imposed “occupation lite” on 130 countries around the world. These nations are under de facto occupation by U.S. troops stationed at more than 900 military bases.

But now, as Malcolm X famously said, the chickens are coming home to roost. The U.S. itself is coming under occupation, as militarized police forces – made up in part of hardened veterans of the counterinsurgency wars in Iraq and Afghanistan – are treating the American people the same way they treated their victims in foreign lands.

The shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri has highlighted the fact that much of the USA is now under de facto military occupation by murderously hostile troops posing as police officers. Witnesses confirm that Michael Brown was shot dead as he stood harmlessly with his hands in the air attempting to surrender. The police, as American police always do in these situations, have lied outrageously as they attempt to protect one of the murderers in their ranks.

As protests against the Michael Brown shooting spread, the police in Ferguson responded with full-scale SWAT team tactics reminiscent of those used against the people of Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan. Whole platoons of officers in black helmets and body armor have stood atop armored personnel carriers aiming their assault rifles at protesting crowds, while experimental weapons, including a long-range acoustic weapon that produces excruciating ear-splitting pain, have been used against demonstrators. A second police shooting critically injured a protestor at 1 a.m. on Wednesday.

The Saint Louis County SWAT teams have been driving tanks through the streets and pointing their weapons at vehicles that get too close. It looks exactly like occupied Iraq, where U.S. troops regularly murdered whole families of civilians whose cars looked “suspicious” as they approached checkpoints.

Police in military fatigues have screamed at reporters to “get down” and “back off” or risk getting caught in the crossfire. They have arrested reporters for getting too close to their self-created war zone, then blasted peaceful crowds with stun grenades and doused them with tear gas.

Even the corporate-controlled U.S. mainstream media has been questioning the savage military-style occupation of Ferguson, Missouri – and the larger trend toward militarizing law enforcement. When reporter Wesley Lowery of the Washington Post was gratuitously assaulted and arrested for filming, the Post’s executive editor Martin Baron released a statement saying the newspaper was “appalled by the conduct of the police officers involved.”

Lowery tweeted: “Officers slammed me into a fountain soda machine because I was confused about which door they were asking me to walk out of.” He added: “Got no explanation at any point why in custody other than ‘trespassing’ – at a McDonalds where we were customers.”

Along with brutalizing reporters and falsely arresting them, Ferguson police threw canisters of tear gas at an al-Jazeera America film crew. These deranged storm-trooper cops apparently saw the al-Jazeera logo and imagined themselves back in some Middle Eastern war zone.

At least they aren’t sending out snipers and air strikes to murder reporters like the Zionists do in Gaza… at least not yet.

But they are moving in that direction. All over America, police departments are buying military helicopters, tanks and armored vehicles, automatic rifles, and even drones – and preparing to use them against the American population.

The occupation of America, like the occupation of Middle Eastern nations, has a racial edge. US troops sent to occupy the Middle East are trained to despise the local people as dark-skinned “sand n-gg-rs” and “hajjis” who can be slaughtered with impunity.
In places like Ferguson, where the police are virtually all-white while the majority of the population is black, the militarized police imagine themselves as occupation troops lording it over the darker-skinned natives. The election of Barack Obama, the first African-American President of the United States, has not altered the fact that people of color in many parts of the US are still living under what amounts to a kind of foreign occupation.

But it isn’t just people of color who are suffering under the increasingly vicious militarized occupation of America. Police are also brutalizing more and more working-class and even middle-class white people.

If you search “police kill dog” on youtube you’ll get more than 26 million hits. One could spend weeks watching videos of militarized police marauding through American communities, shooting pets and occasionally their owners, kicking down innocent people’s doors, beating people within an inch of their lives or worse, and generally acting like a bloodthirsty army running amok over occupied foreign territory.

One lesson of 9/11 is that the US imperial oligarchy no longer restricts itself to mass-murdering browned-skinned people at home and abroad. By blowing up the World Trade Center and killing almost 3,000 people, most of them white-skinned middle-class office workers, the masters of empire were sending a message: The elite has shifted gears and is now prepared to slaughter anyone, including white, middle-class Americans.

9/11 also ushered in the formal designation of the U.S. homeland as just another military occupation zone. On October 1st, 2002, the U.S. military created “NORCOM,” the US Northern Command, paralleling U.S. military commands in other global occupation zones.

In effect, 9/11 was a declaration of war on America – not by radical Muslim terrorists, but by the globalist ruling elite. The American middle class was the biggest obstacle in the path of the New World Order plan to create a one-world plutocratic tyranny. 9/11 – which militarized American society, hollowed out the U.S. economy, and turned the U.S.A. into an occupied nation – was designed to remove that obstacle.

Will Americans awaken and rise up against their oppressors, like the people of Gaza, Iraq and Afghanistan? Or will they obediently line up to be microchipped the next time the New World Order elite terrorizes them with a big false flag attack?

    I’d suggested denying any-all services to anyone DHS-TSA.. dont sell them gas let them be late for work. dont sell them food, no medical services, raise their rent make them homeless, whatever!
    this is AMERICA, “we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone”, needs to be applied, now.

    Attorney General Eric Holder was in Ferguson yesterday to personally check on the federal investigation. Yet he declined to investigate the outrageous cop murder of an unarmed young black mother which happened right under his nose in DC, and her family is justifiably furious. That is the Oct. 3 murder of Miriam Carey in Washington DC. Her family is now suing the US, the Secret Service, and the Capitol Police for $150 million. They want answers to her death.
    http://www.wnd.com/2014/08/slain-moms-family-wheres-holders-outrage-for-us/

    Remember her? She was the young black woman who mistakenly drove past a White House guard post, and then tried to leave. A plainclothes officer tried to stop her from leaving. She was killed in a hail of bullets by Capitol Police and Secret Service, in the presence of her infant child in the backseat. Why aren’t people demonstrating for her? It’s because this whole scene in Ferguson, MO is a federal setup, possibly to distract attention from the Miriam Carey case in DC?

    I had mentioned a Knockout Game attack last week on a very pregnant Indian woman. I have now found the article, which has a photo of the woman, whose name is a common one in Bangladesh. She was sucker-punched in the back of the head while walking down a Brooklyn street with her sister on Aug. 14.

    The 2 reporters arrested at McDonalds in Ferguson were no saints either. Non-local reporters camped out at McDonalds for hours, buying nothing and using up ALL the WiFi, elbowing out the customers. Many of them were rude and arrogant to McDonalds employees, the public and the police. Also, some non-local reporters were refusing to buy the $10 pass that would allow unlimited parking, even though local reporters buy those passes. And it’s pretty obvious from the tone of some of the national stories from the start, that the reporters who came in, had and still have their own agenda, continuing the false narrative of an unarmed and innocent Michael Brown, heedless of the facts that continue to say otherwise.

  5. JS  August 20, 2014 at 12:09 pm

    Dr Barrett, you have good points about militarized police. And we could add that federal agencies like IRS, EPA, BLM, etc are all militarized now, which is even worse,

    But you are dead wrong about the Michael Brown situation. I live in the area, and the national media are deliberately lying about it. Local media know, it’s been obvious almost from the very beginning that Brown was NOT unarmed (he was a huge man who knew how to play the Knockout Game with his fists, a deadly game invented here in St Louis, which has gone nationwide), and was NOT surrendering. First, he and his buddy Johnson strongarm robbed a store just before they were stopped. His accomplice has now RECANTED, for good reason. Brown had rushed officer Wilson before he even got out of the car, grabbing the by the neck and sucker-punched him in the face, blowing out the eye socket bones. Xray shows that. Also, Brown AND his buddy Dorian Johnson went for the gun right after the punch, with Brown on the drivers side, and Johnson on the passenger side. The 4 shots to Brown’s right arm, probably ALL come from the tussle over the gun, while Brown’s right arm was in the car.

    • JS  August 20, 2014 at 12:18 pm

      Failing to get the gun, the 2 men ran. Officer gets out of car and pursues, yelling Freeze! The 2 men turn around, and Brown bum-rushed the officer again. That would be how he got the 2 head shots. By the way, toxicology report shows marijuana in Brown’s body.

      Now every nut job in the US is here in Ferguson to loot or LIE, including New Black Panthers and ISIS, both here encouraging the killing of cops. Dr Barrett, I expect the MSM to lie, but I don’t expect VT to lie. Please stop repeating the lie that Brown was unarmed and innocent. One thing that would help everyone of every race here in the US, is if we had a frank national discussion about the deadly Knockout Game, which Brown knew how to play very well. I’m getting sick of people getting cold-cocked in the head, like the very pregnant Indian woman last week in another city. Now Michael Brown has paid with his life, for playing the Knockout Game.

    • JS  August 20, 2014 at 4:33 pm

      Ferguson (like surrounding areas) is mostly black, and the residents are mostly good people, hardworking and smart. Michael Brown went to Normandy high school. I happen to know that school has not just 1, but 2, FIRST robotics competition teams, and they are black kids, good kids. I’ve been to the community college in Ferguson and spent 2 days watching them compete. Michael Brown went in a different direction, and it cost his life.

    • Kevin Barrett  August 20, 2014 at 12:24 pm

      If you’re right (which remains to be seen) I owe this cop an apology. But there is good reason to assume cops are lying in situations like this. I experienced firsthand the insane violence and lies of cops – my wrists and hands were permanently maimed by two San Francisco cops who enjoyed complete impunity due to the fact that virtually every SFPD officer lies to cover up the crimes of the bad ones…as happens in almost all US jurisdictions. So if this particular shooting turns out to have been justifiable homicide, which seems unlikely given the witness statements, it will be the rare .001% exception that proves the rule.

      Vicious murders of innocent civilians by cops happen almost every day. Why would the media need to make up a false story about this incident, when actual murders of civilians by cops happen constantly?

    • JS  August 20, 2014 at 12:44 pm

      Yes, there is police corruption, and I’ve seen it firsthand. But here in Ferguson, a routine kind of crime, and a normal police response, invited a steadily increasing government intervention, by the state and then the feds. WHY? I think the RESPONSE may have been pre-planned, using this incident as an excuse, and that the facts of the original incident did not matter to them. That might explain why national media are lying about it. Time will tell. I hope VT helps get the facts out about the response.

    • JS  August 20, 2014 at 1:21 pm

      One example about the strange response… When the State came in, they told St Louis County police to stand down. That night, looters and arsonists were allowed to run around loose, and shopowners had to arm themselves to try to keep shops safe. Whose brilliant idea was that, to stop the police from protecting businesses and homes? And who thought it would be a good idea to let the militants with megaphones continue every night to encourage people to go out and kill cops in general, and officer Wilson specifically? That is NOT protected free speech.

    • captain obvious  August 22, 2014 at 11:49 pm

      why would congress do anything about it? they sabotaged our economy so more people ARE desperate, making crime go up to justify more “police” and more jails, funded by a population who’s collective income has been flushed down the toilet! they WANT a civil war so they can escape being charged with treason, financial terrorism etc, against the people they supposedly represent.

  6. Martin Maloney  August 19, 2014 at 4:40 pm

    “Will Americans awaken and rise up against their oppressors, like the people of Gaza, Iraq and Afghanistan?”

    No, they won’t, because they don’t realize that they are asleep. They don’t see the parallel between foreign occupation and domesic occupation. Their TV sets and their newspapers have told them that we’re all a bunch of wierdo “Conspiracy Theorists,” and they believe what they hear and read.

    “Or will they obediently line up to be microchipped the next time the New World Order elite terrorizes them with a big false flag attack?”

    Yes, they will, because they’ve watched “Contagion” and similar films. It’s called “Predictive Programming.” They will know how to behave as “Good Citizens” when the time comes.

  7. Allesandro  August 19, 2014 at 3:12 pm

    We have special forces who are the best in the world including counter-intelligence-terrorism, we don’t need Israeli’s who murder women and children to instruct us on anything, especially since they did 9/11/01. This is one more way they are burrowing into our infrastructure, and it should be noted we’re most likely paying for it one way or another.
    I saw this quote somewhere.

    “St. Louis County Police Chief Timothy Fitch will be part of a national delegation of law enforcement officials traveling to Israel next month to study counter-terrorism tactics.

    Over a weeklong visit, the delegation will learn how Israel’s police, intelligence and security forces prevent terror attacks, and includes visits to Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Tiberias. Law enforcement will be briefed by members of the Israel National Police, the Israel Defense Forces, among others.

    The trip is part of the Anti-Defamation League’s National Counter-Terrorism Seminar.”

    So, Israel helped plan and execute 9/11, Silverstein and others made $BILLIONS, walked scot-free, we loose our Bill of Rights and Constitution , get stuck with DHS and it’s costs, the Police are being trained by Israel who committed the original crime of 9/11. They are instructing us on terrorism when they executed the single greatest terrorist attack in our history.

    These tactics are needed against people who are discovering the facts about what their government has done to a president, senator, civil rights workers, governor of a state, many authors, scientists, truth seekers targeting hoaxes, honest tax-paying citizens-among many others. When so many independent investigators have unraveled the truth about foreign and domestic taxpayer financed and government backed tragedies, I can see why these overrated “heroes” of ours douse themselves with military garbage and come after us.
    The tragedies resulting from the Bush/Clinton/Bush/Oblunder traitorous years of selling out the people of their own country is overwhelming. They stay hero status for many and still rake in millions from speech appearances and books. JFK for all his shortcomings, told us the truth. The CIA had to take him out. It all is catching up with the government and their traitors. They are running scared when they take to tactics as overdressing their jack-booted thugs for street use. God was right, “…they know not what they do.” They have failed us…we are the ones in need of ammo, flak jackets and helmets, and a backbone.

      even people in military. families bought-sent them GOOD body armor and they were denied using it!
      ok for blackwater-xe to have the BEST, but not regular enlistee’s they WANT to get harmed-damaged.
      the body armor didnt cost govt, yet they wouldnt allow it, says a LOT.

  11. Cold Wind  August 19, 2014 at 7:51 am

    To quote Rodney King “can’t we all just get along?”… apparently not. Why haven’t the people of Ferguson fired their police chief?

  12. stephanaugust  August 19, 2014 at 7:19 am

    “The shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri has highlighted the fact that much of the USA is now under de facto military occupation …”

    May I opine that I believe that this shooting did not kill Michael Brown because his autopsy diagram showed four bullet wounds in his right arm but the scene with his body showed no blood coming from his right arm?

  13. haroldsmith  August 19, 2014 at 6:36 am

    This is a good time to look back and reflect upon all the traitors and moral cowards, people in various positions of public trust, authority, etc., without whose treachery – at such a critical time – we likely wouldn’t be where we are today, i.e., at the verge of economic collapse, martial law, world war 3, etc.

    I suppose we ought to thank them – for witlessly helping to destroy this Jewish-supremacist-controlled evil empire, by giving it enough rope to hang itself. So a big “thank you” goes to Shyam Sunder and his fellow traitors at NIST, for example, for the cartoonishly funny but nevertheless useful “analysis” of the “collapse” of WTC7, for example.

    And a big thank you to all the various judges in the several states without whose breathtakingly absurd “legal” acrobatics, we might have lost our executioner, our Kenyan-born presidential poseur “Barack Hussein Obama” (if that’s actually his name), to a silly constitutional technicality.

    And lastly, a big thanks to all the traitors in the FBI, CIA, NSA, etc., etc., etc., too numerous to mention by name, but whose contributions to the workings of the apoptotic machinery are clearly indispensable.

    When the nukes finally rain down upon us, I hope you and your families will be the lucky ones who take a direct hit.

  14. Allesandro  August 19, 2014 at 5:26 am

    This type of action is not going to help their gun control/disarmament issue. Ammo and gun sales and training should go up. Maybe they don’t care, believing they have an enormous tactical advantage.

    For those asking “Would they fire on American citizens” it appears you have an early indication.

    “the media” always cries about “officer down”, never revealing what kind of SOB he mightta been.
    “veterans” get preference when it comes to being hired as “police”, 95+ IQ need not apply.

    if (more like WHEN) SHTF, there are a LOT of veterans who DO know which way is UP, all these “militarized police stations” wont be looked at as anything but weapons cache’s to be wholesale raided, and I’m not going to have any sympathy for whatever kind of “people” who try to stand in their way.
    if they were REAL police, theyed already arrested the REAL traitors in govt and big business who set all this BS up from the top down.

    Basketball professional Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has been credited with “The coming race war won’t be about race…” Kareem’s article may be about “Class Warfare.” A short bio-sketch with Kareem’s photograph offers “He is also a celebrated author, filmmaker and education ambassador.”

    A half-century ago a significant number of Cubans fled to Miami, Florida, when Castro took power. The Cubans economically pushed out the working Negro/African American from many of the lower class jobs they held in South Florida.

    Southerner Jimmy Carter made a Christian humanitarian gesture as president toward Cuba, and Castro happily embraced the idea and emptied Cuban jails for America’s welcoming. Now it is Mexican and Latin American migrants, legal and illegal immigrants that are challenging the status quo of lower class communities.

    America’s President is currently extending welcoming hands to a whole new set of the dispossessed and downtrodden. There might be a few gang members in this new wave also. Just remember, firemen, paramedics, policemen, SWAT teams, nurses, and doctors are on the front-lines of “Class Warfare.”

    An Obituary — Nguyen Ngoc Loan, the quick-tempered South Vietnamese national police commander, whose impromptu execution of a Viet Cong prisoner on a Saigon street in the Tet offensive of 1968, helped galvanize American public opinion against the war, died on Tuesday at his home in Burke, Virginia. Nguyen Ngoc Loan was 67 and had operated a pizza parlor…

    very good piece, Kevin. an alarming acceleration military-style “policing” indeed, in recent years. even in sleepy England we have had the odd police murder and a fair bit of inappropriate tasering of disabled people in wheelchairs, journalists, concerned citizens etc. one consequence that might be expected is symptoms of increasing stress levels in police employees themselves – depression, domestic violence, homicides, nightmares…is there any data on this aspect? from a few sound-tracks i have heard the militarized police seem to be on the verge of paranoid psychotic breakdown – are these people subjected psychotropic procedures to alienate them from their more benign human instincts?

    • peter kjoneleit  August 18, 2014 at 9:30 pm

      “are these people subjected {to} psychotropic procedures to alienate them from their more benign human instincts?”

      Well, sort of. THEY are a “New Breed” of humanoid, reptilian ALIENS, genetically re-engineered and manufactured in DUMBs (Deep Underground Military Bases). THEY have been specifically bred to NOT HAVE “more benign human instincts”. Visit the following website (http //montalk.net/) and read about the ALIEN AGENDA. Also, Google “William Pawelec”, “Phil Schneider” and “William Cooper” and LISTEN to their interviews and speeches.
