Emerging information and actions over the past few years has demonstrated that the United States government and a significant portion of the left-leaning population believe that those Americans who firmly believe in the Constitution are a potential threat and that the government one day might be justified in conducting military operations against them. Is there really a threat from those who value the Constitution or are the government and its leftist allies purposely creating strife for their own nefarious purposes?
One of the latest examples of the government identifying Constitution-believing Americans as a potential threat involved a unit with the Ohio National Guard. Media Trackers first obtained official documents showing that a training mission used Second Amendment-supporting terrorists as the enemy that required the armed forces to respond in the U.S. homeland. Media Trackers reported the following:
Documents from an Ohio National Guard (ONG) training drill conducted last January reveal the details of a mock disaster where Second Amendment supporters with “anti-government” opinions were portrayed as domestic terrorists.
The ONG 52nd Civil Support Team training scenario involved a plot from local school district employees to use biological weapons in order to advance their beliefs about “protecting Gun Rights and Second Amendment rights.”
Portsmouth Chief of Police Bill Raisin told NBC 3 WSAZ-TV in Huntington, West Virginia that the drill accurately represented “the reality of the world we live in,” adding that such training “helps us all be prepared.” . . .
ONG’s 52nd Civil Support Unit participated in a similar drill involving left-wing terrorists with Athens County first responders last year; public officials apologized for that training the next day in response to complaints from local environmentalist groups.
No apology to Ohioans who support limited government and the Second Amendment appears to be forthcoming.Media Trackers later reported that the Ohio National Guard denied any responsibility in creating and conducting the above training scenario, and instead assigned responsibility to the West Virginia National Guard.
This isn’t the first time an official government organization has used Constitution-believing Americans as villains. Furthermore, it’s part of a trend of government officials writing in official and unofficial capacities with increasingly hostile views towards both the Constitution and law-abiding American people.
