Why the New DHS Warning Makes Me Sad

Why the New DHS Warning Makes Me Sad

I have said it before and I will say it again here, I do not support violence for any reason anywhere. I support law, order and justice by means of a functioning system working through legislation, truth, understanding, balance, research and information. I support the Constitution and the freedom of thought.

A main component for the freedom of thought to actually exist is the ability to ask questions on any matter within existence, from politics to elections to economics to healthcare to society to humanity, to religion, and to anything else that exists under the sun on Earth.

Today, the ability to keep the freedom of thought by questioning existence is being questioned itself by institutions which wish to suppress this freedom of thought by putting fear into the population.

The Department of Homeland Security has just issued a new warning on Friday against domestic and foreign threats for the coming 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. While this is understandable with current events and could be a possibly good thing to raise awareness to protect the American people from something like that ever happening again, the warning also includes targeting of the American people who question things like the 2020 election or the recent health mandates for covid.

This is what makes me sad. I saw a post online from a picture about the warning, headlining that threats could come from Trump supporters, those who question vaccines mandates and those who question the 2020 election. To compare any of that to the threat of 9/11 or potential terrorists seems a bit disturbing to me, and the fear mongering does nothing but further divide the American population.

There is nothing wrong with asking questions and seeking truth, especially in America where the freedom of thought is written to be paramount in who we are as a nation of free people.

To place this label on a mass of American society, as regardless if there was election fraud or not, at least around half the population voted for Trump, this seems to seek to use fear and demonizing rhetoric to further divide the population. This seems to be intended to make people afraid of asking questions. Again, this doesn’t make me angry or scared, it just makes me sad to see this happening from a government institution here in the United States.

One thing that I was happy to see from the report was that the threat of Iran, China and Russia were also being talked about as real. There are true threats to our freedom here in America, and those are the places on the planet that should be the target of concern, not the American people. I am glad to see that the Department of Homeland Security still is willing to acknowledge these true threats we face.

I cannot imagine any Trump supporter or anyone who loves America and its freedom doing anything to resemble the attack on 9/11 that we faced. I remember the day myself, and it was the most horrible experience that I have ever witnessed on American soil. What happened on that day was true horror here, and we must do everything we can to make sure that something like that never happens again.

Here’s to hoping common sense prevails across America, and the freedom of thought to question anything remains a right to all the free people here. For all races, colors and creeds, from Democratic to Republican, for Christians to atheists and everyone on any side who cares about what it is to freely think as an individual.

It is the inherent right of every human to think, and no fear should ever stop that capability. I hope the DHS remains focused on real threats to our nation, people and freedom, and I also hope that we as a people can make it through the coming future without harm. I pray we find justice, truth and peace through rational thought and common understanding.

Still, the world of today makes me sad on too many levels to count.

Still, I have hope.

    The Biggest threat to America is BIDEN.

      Biden needs to Retire. OR Be Retired!

    You don’t have to imagine, it is right in front of you!

    A suspect who claimed to have an explosive device in a truck near the US Capitol has surrendered to authorities and is in custody, US Capitol Police said Thursday.

    Police have identified the suspect as 49-year-old Floyd Ray Roseberry. The incident prompted multiple buildings in the area to be evacuated Thursday as authorities responded to an “active bomb threat investigation,” the USCP wrote on Twitter.

    Roseberry had been live-streaming from the scene, USCP Chief Tom Manger said. A roughly half-hour Facebook video showed him inside a truck, holding a cannister that he said was a bomb and speaking about a “revolution.” The video and Roseberry’s Facebook profile have since been removed.
    Manger told reporters later Thursday that authorities couldn’t yet identify a motive.
    Manger, who said that so far there is “no indication” Roseberry was acting with others, added that the area remains an active crime scene, as officials still have to search the truck to make sure it’s safe.
    On Roseberry’s now-removed Facebook page, he frequently made pro-Trump posts and posted videos from former President Donald Trump’s “Million MAGA March” on November 14.

    As a retired soldier, I could not agree more with you about settling our differences within US society by civil means. Let’s not forget, however there have been times in our history when it was necessary to end the civil discussion, and take up arms. Examples are our revolutionary war, the war of 1812, the civil war, two world wars and numerous other instances where in order to keep our free, peaceful society it was necessary some of us take up arms and take on those who would destroy us.

    When a tyrannical government ceases to be free and peaceful, we have a right to respond. Our constitution guarantees us the right to peacefully assemble to present our grievances, and when those peacefully assembled are attacked – by government forces, or by those the government has enabled and encouraged to act on its behalf, the citizens have a right and a duty to defend themselves, and to defend our Republic.

      I actually agree with you.
      What police departments across America did to BLM protestors was disgraceful. A officer buddy of mine giggled as he recounted how badly they violated demonstrators civil rights.
      But other than that, I haven’t seen the government infringe on anyone’s rights.

      • Dan Tyree

        What BLM did to innocent business owners and good police officers is even more disgraceful.

    Every single agent in the DHS is a domestic terrorist, are not patriots and are anti American committing treason!

    • Ben

      DHS, yet another Republican legacy. If I remember correctly, EVERY Republican voted for. It was created in only TEN days after the 9-11 terrorist attacks. Tell me they didn’t have an agency like this ready and waiting for the right opportunity. The Patriot Act was also enacted under President Bush. Republicans willingly gave up freedoms so that the Government could protect them.
      Why would Republicans ( Bush Administration) create a treasonous Department?

    There can be no answers without there first being questions. When you ban the questions, you can have no more answers. Science, engineering, and even government all require questions. That is how progress is made. Certain segments of our government are banning specific questions, because they don’t want some specific answers to be found. It’s easy to prove your theory when only certain questions can be asked, but without a challenge, it is not a real proof.

  6. Frank Stetson

    Actually a good Op Ed piece, hard to say much more than I disagree that all question asking is a good thing. There comes a time, after the questions have been sufficiently answered, after the questions have been refuted, with facts, there comes a time that the same oft repeated, factually refuted questions become statements. And those statements are lies.

    Given your timing; the latest Trump inspired truck bomber provides an answer to too much of the same questions, I guess you can see the downside on when questions become The Big Lie and The Big Lie erodes the very foundations of our institutions of Democracy. This guy felt his only answer to your questions, given the failure of our institutions to give you the answer you want, his only answer was to blow it all up. And that answers my questions about maybe your questions going to far given you have the answers but refuse to accept them. Then it’s can become a bad thing.
