Skip to comments.National Guard asked to explain 'internment' jobs
Posted on 08/07/2009 9:03:09 PM PDT by conservativegramma
An ad campaign featured on a U.S. Army website seeking those who would be interested in being an "Internment/Resettlement" specialist is raising alarms across the country, generating concerns that there is some truth in those theories about domestic detention camps, a roundup of dissidents and a crackdown on "threatening" conservatives.
The ads, at the GoArmy.com website as well as others including Monster.com, cite the need for:
"Internment/Resettlement (I/R) Specialists in the Army are primarily responsible for day-to-day operations in a military confinement/correctional facility or detention/internment facility. I/R Specialists provide rehabilitative, health, welfare, and security to U.S. military prisoners within a confinement or correctional facility; conduct inspections; prepare written reports; and coordinate activities of prisoners/internees and staff personnel. The campaign follows by only weeks a report from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security warning about "right-wing extremists" who could pose a danger to the country including those who support third-party political candidates, oppose abortion and would prefer to have the U.S. immigration laws already on the books enforced.

Maybe they’ll be needed at “Camp Gunfree?”
Wanted experienced warders to serve on boards managing interment camps.
Must have experience warder boarding.
Also interviewing for Internment Czar
Prefer candidates with czar and fettering experience.
**Maybe theyll be needed at Camp Gunfree?**
Why do I get the feeling that they’re NOT planning on the Internment of ILLEGAL ALIENS or MUSLIMS??
I expect they’ll be the ones running these little resorts.
They’d better start recruiting more Medics.
OTOH, maybe they are using firstname.lastname@example.org to put together a watchlist and they will arrest us all and ship us to black sites in Area 51 manned by bored Guardsmen on AT ... yeah, that's possible.
The don’t need medics. Der Fuhrer has already decreed ‘take more painpills’.
I WAS kinda hoping by the title, that they were going to talk about THIS PLACE:
Hey, I can do this! I’m a nice guy. I’ll make sure you guys get milk and cookies with your bed tuck every night! :-)
Only tyrants demand their citizens be unarmed.
WND gets on my last nerve. BIG HEADLINE. NO information. Bah!
I happen to know that the National Guard troops and most, if not all, of the regulars are people just like us. I really don’t see this internment thing going very far. Couple that with the vast extended families that most of us have and I believe that they’d have a pretty rough time. It might work with some of the dysfunctional types who have very tenuous family ties and who are in and out of detention anyway. But other than that, I don’t see this going anywhere.
**I WAS kinda hoping by the title, that they were going to talk about THIS PLACE:**
Ah, yes, CLUB GITMO ...where the only acceptable form of torture is ... no milk or sugar at TEA TIME ... and NO little wooden flat spoon with their dessert Ice Cream CUP.
Or did we just have policies that promoted freedom and capitalism and got the hell out of the way of the "natives" we liberated from oppressive dicataors"?
And didn't the highly centralized,planned countries all end up as "shining " examples,like East Germany,North Korea,Mao's China?
Reagan was correct in that government is more often the problem than it is the solution.
In Texas especially.
It doesn't take all of the Guard ,just enough to secure the armory.
Once the bad guys have a heavy machine gun even a large group of patriotic ,but unarmed, people are done .
Maybe because they didn't mention anything about knowing a second language in the Helpful Attributes section.
Helpful attributes include:
An ability to think and react quickly An ability to remain calm in stressful situations An interest in law enforcement and crime prevention Being physically fit
Was there ever a time that they were not given that training?
Many of us freepers can vouch for that training going back to our time in service into the early 1960s.
Here is a little photo of the 101st Airborne in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1957.
The vast majority of the military WOULD NOT go along with this. Also if he starts his “Civilian Crackhead Force” or whatever the jive pimp is brewing up they would fail miserably as we are armed, WELL armed, and we know how to use those arms.
This dingleberry is and will be greatly underestimating our will and means to fight if he tries this garbage.
Not always the case. Improvisational music is well respected, as is improvisational violence, on the side of liberty.
They didn’t resettle anyone though..
F U B H O
"The post-World War II occupation of Germany was a huge and diverse undertaking spanning almost eleven years, conducted in conjunction with three other members of the wartime alliance and involving in various degrees a number of US governmental departments and agencies. The occupation was, moreover, a major event in German history and in the history of the postwar world; and for the Army it was a mission second only in scope and significance to the war itself. The subject of the present volume is that Army mission, its origin, the manner in which it was defined, and its execution to June 1946 in the period of primary Army responsibility."
"The narrative begins in the 1930s, before the outbreak of war in Europe, and concludes in mid-1946, a little more than a year after the victory. Although the likelihood of US military forces occupying Germany appeared infinitesimal in the late 1930s and only slightly greater in the first two years of the 1940s, the actions taken in those years were in some ways more significant than the subsequent mission-oriented plans and preparations. It was, of course, most important that the Army, albeit somewhat reluctantly, had recognized the need for civil affairs-military government doctrine and training before the requirement to administer occupied territory was placed upon it. This recognition was a true innovation in the conduct of military affairs."
Yes, but is a Citizen a civilian?
I was arrested at that Department Of Justice building once, or at least taken into custody for a week or so and held in primitive conditions while being interviewed by the FBI and denied basic rights. Days of that confinement were spent hungry and cold inside the Washington Coliseum with the bulk of security supplied by uniformed soldiers with bayonets.
Well, to fit us all in they will have to empty all jails and prisons...those citizens will take care of the liberals that are outside. When no one has a gun, the criminals are happy..
Like a previous poster pointed out. They are not asking for individuals fluent in any foreign language. It doesn’t look, at a cursory glance, completely benign. As I’ve stated previously, unfortunately, the financial holes being dug cannot be escaped for decades if ever. obama needs a terrorist attack to get out of this mess and retain control. Call me tinfoil. I just don’t see any other way.
Food for thought.
I should mention that I was with thousands of other American citizens at the time.
You’d be surprised what people would be willing to do in desperate situations or the threat of them. I wish I could say I had your confidence.
My original thread on the subject.
Were you one of the Nisei? A friend’s father and mother were detained, but the father joined the US Army.
The sad fact is that the Army of the United States has been used on occasion to suppress domestic freedom,was used to evict native Indians from land both traditional and recognized by treaty, and members of the military have committed atrocities in our own Civil War and foreign wars.That these heinous acts are rare is no reason to ignore or guard against the possibility of future such acts,both to protect ourselves and the honor of the military.
Yeah, gramma, I can only agree. Will they have a geriatric unit for those of us who remember the good old days when we had a free country?
And Christians as well will be incarcerated in those places. Count on it.
No tinfoil hat needed, and here is description, and it is concerning:
Internment can also be used interchangable with word burial...see dictionary.
Here's what I'd do: Put the fighters out of the way somewhere while you build the infrastructure, and train them so they have suitable skills to find a job. Use your existing corrections specialists to guard these guys, but rename them internment/resettlement specialists to recognize their new duties.
Is I/R a little euphemistic? Maybe. "Detention and Re-Education Specialist" might hit closer to the mark, but has Orwellian overtones. "Corrections Specialist" had to go, though, since not all detention centers are corrections centers. And I still think they may be moving towards a 31E role in major noncombatant evacuation operations, since large movements of people may need to be detained and screened for infiltrators.
I’ve got military family...they say NO way...
