Posted on 09/10/2012 3:29:28 PM PDT by ElIguana
No, it's not an early Halloween prank. The Associated Press is reporting that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has launched a new "public health campaign" and has "urged citizens to prepare for a zombie apocalypse."
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have gotten into the act as well and have launched a series of seminars and social media campaigns on zombie attack survival.
A CDC pamphlet, "Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse" gives a history of zombies and checklists of all the survival items that citizens should have in stock in case of a zombie attack, is presently available online here.
What's gotten into DHS, FEMA and the CDC? Obviously, federal government officials do not recognize the existence of zombies, at least not officially, but DHS, FEMA and CDC are apparently using the zombie-angle as a lame marketing ploy.
According to the Associated Press, our disaster response agencies are under the impression that if citizens are "prepared for a zombie attack, the same preparations will help during a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake or terrorist attack;" and undoubtedly, the approaching of the Halloween holiday and the recent public infatuation with all things undead, more than likely played a role in inspiring our government to push the marketing ploy.
Is this latest government idiocy effective marketing or a waste of our hard-earned tax dollars? Let us know your thoughts."
Well, unlike a lot of what the feds do, there’s at least a chance that something good comes out of it.
Re: the above: sad how low the bar is set these days, isn’t it..?
Zombies are y’all....just look and listen to Joe Biden. Case closed.
Insert real before y’all.
There is no racism among the ruling elite. Only ‘classism’.
there is another thread that has a link to a piece from the FDR era. Sure sounds like today. His acolytes never wanted their Great Depression crisis to go to waste either.. and they sure sound like Obama zombies -- no one said a zombie couldn't be a PhD with a large IQ..
This is a description of the leftist elite at the time of FDR's Administration:
"This revolutionary elite was nothing you could define as a party. It had no name, no habitat, no rigid line. [There was a Communist Party but it was too obvious, too crude.] Nobody could say that about the elite above . . . What it represented was a quantity of bitter intellectual radicalism infiltrated from the top downward as a doctorhood of professors, writers, critics, analysts, advisers, administators, directors of research, and so on a prepared revolutionary intelligence in spectacles . . . there was a shibboleth that united them all: "Capitalism is finished." [and one idea] the idea of a transfer of power. For that a united front; after that, anything. And the wine of communion was a passion to play upon history with a scientific revolutionary technic."
In fact that even sounds like..
Richard Carlson: . . . a zombie has no will of his own. You see them some times, walking around blindly with dead eyes, following orders, not knowing what they do, not caring.
Bob Hope: You mean, like Democrats?
"Ghost Breakers" (1940)
With the number of dead people who vote Democrat shouldn't the concern of the Democrats actually be protecting the undead from the living?
They already are trying to get rid of crosses some. Next they could outlaw silver in order to protect vampires and the whole global warming campaign could be based on a fear of sunlight.
Is “Zombie”code word for muslim?
It was considered “Red paranoia” and “xenophobia” when Republican presidents pushed for such preparedness for decades (including post 9-11-2001).
but make a joke out of it and then it’s “cool”.
Life was nicer when we were willing to CONFRONT the enemy and broadcast the extent of their wickedness.
Now the Democrats have harsher rhetoric for the opposition party than they do for Marxism, Communism, Fascism (genuine European Socialist Fascism), Islamonazism, etc.
But zombies, “whoaaa”.
Obama must be about to unleash Plugs!
Don’t believe any of their lists includes having a gun with hollow point bullets to shoot zombies in the head or suggests a machete to slice off their heads.
Since that isn’t listed, the lists are bogus.
Are you suggesting they are playing pig-whistle politics... ??
For the upcoming Obama zombie invasion.
Nor do I see instructions on how to convert your ‘73 Delta 88 to run on steam power and mount spinning blades to the front to automate the decapitations :(
Hopefully, the adults will be back in charge next year and do some housecleaning.
Zombie short story
The CDC has had instructions on how to survive a zombie invasion on its website for well over a year now.
It’s an attempt to get around the normally dry subject matter of disaster preparedness. Most people aren’t very interested in preparing for a disaster until it is on top of them. By putting the subject within the context of a zombie invasion, the CDC hopes more people will actually read it... and more of them will be inspired to put those disaster kits together.
