Ohio National Guard Training Envisions Right-Wing Terrorism
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. [Is this along the lines of the Obama Administration identifying Catholics as terror-threats, right?]
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.” [Sounds like a good idea for a novel, except make it liberals against the 2nd Amendment doing things like occupying city parks.]
Portsmouth Fire Chief Bill Raison 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.” [Because 2nd Amendment activists have threatened to use biological weapons?]
Internal ONG documents provided to Media Trackers after repeated delays provide further context to what WSAZ-TV reported last winter.
In the disaster-preparedness scenario, two Portsmouth Junior High School employees poisoned school lunches with mustard gas, acting on orders from white-nationalist leader William Pierce. [Yep, get all those liberal boogymen in their. Are they also from the South?]
The ONG team discovered biological weapons being produced in the school, [In… chemistry class?] requiring activation of containment and decontamination procedures.
Participants in the disaster drill located documents expressing the school employees’ “anti-government” sentiments, as well as a note identifying Pierce as the fictional right-wing terrorists’ leader.
[NB] 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.
No apology? I’m shocked! Shocked, I say!
This reminds me of Enemies Foreign and Domestic by Matthew Bracken.
This is a trilogy. Yes, it is dystopian SHTF stuff.
