Secretary Napolitano Announces Expansion of "If You See Something, Say Something"
DHS ^ | December 6, 2010 | Office of the Press Secretary

Posted on 12/06/2010 12:44:36 PM PST by moonshinner_09

Washington, D.C. - Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano today announced the expansion of the Department's national "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign to hundreds of Walmart stores across the country - launching a new partnership between DHS and Walmart to help the American public play an active role in ensuring the safety and security of our nation.

"Homeland security starts with hometown security, and each of us plays a critical role in keeping our country and communities safe," said Secretary Napolitano. "I applaud Walmart for joining the ‘If You See Something, Say Something' campaign. This partnership will help millions of shoppers across the nation identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to law enforcement authorities."

Attention Walmart Shoppers. If you see any illegal aliens shopping in the store, call Janet Napolitano.

Is this woman a complete moron or what?! How many terrorists pick up their explosives at a Walmart? Is there a certain aisle that I’m not aware of? Geez.

But if you “say something” and the person you “say something” about happens to be in a PC protected class, say, MUSLIM, then YOU are the one that’s in trouble.

OK... and I’ve certainly got no love lost on Napolitano, but this basic idea has been around since after 9/11.

What should we be asking people to do? If you see something that “just doesn’t look right” that might be a sign of a terrorist act in planning or operation... what are you folk saying? That people should do nothing and go on about their way? I don’t see any problem with asking people to be alert, and to do something when something doesn’t look right, and that’s all this is.

If you sent ICE into any Wal*Mart here in California the place would empty out in about 2 seconds. Really? “See Something Say Something” ... ooooh pretty tough talking there ... Dang these people in the Obama administration are irritating!!!

If I see a Mexican, I can't tell NIS because that would be "profiling".

If I see a gang of black youths at 3:00am in a suburban neighborhood, in a van with lights off driving slowly down the street; I can't say anything because it would be "racial profiling" to have the police stop them and ask them where they got all those color TV's and silverware and jewelry in the back of the van.

What kind of doll-house, tinker-toy, Where's-Waldo world do these libtards live in?

This sounds like the kind of suggestion you'd get from a women's convention on fuel injector maintenance.

It's Affirmative-Action thinking - act cocky and throw out some buzz words and they'll think you know what you're talking about...heck, obama does it all the time.

You don't suppose Walmart is trying for some PR rejuvenation with that Supreme Court case pending, do you?

And how about the nerve of Napolitano...for weeks she's been literally shoving body gropes and nudie-Xpics all over us, and NOW...she's asking for OUR help in doing HER job.

Good luck with that.

Can ya imagine THIS happening in the near future:
(over loudspeaker)
"Attention Wal-Mart Shoppers"
"There's an apparent Suicide Bomber in Aisle Five.
Will all shoppers calmly walk to the nearest exit".

"That is, all shoppers except for YOU, Mohamed.
Joe, in Sporting Goods, has a.308 aimed at your head."

"Thank you for your cooperation, and for shopping at Wal-Mart."

:-)

NOTE: I'm not mocking Wally-World. Far from it.
Recently an on the ball employee in the Order Dept caught someone trying to commit FRAUD with our credit card. The attempted fraudulent purchase(s) didn't match our buying history.

[So we'll go out of our way to shop there now. That Wal-Mart employee saved our bacon.]

This is just more rubbish from that incompetent cow, Napolitano .

Let’s not forget the nine-page document was sent to police and sheriff’s departments across the United States on April 7, 2009 under the headline, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.”

It says the federal government “will be working with its state and local partners over the next several months” to gather information on “rightwing extremist activity in the United States.”

The joint federal-state activities will have “a particular emphasis” on the causes of “rightwing extremist radicalization.”

A footnote attached to the report by the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines “rightwing extremism in the United States” as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority.

“It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration,” the warning says.

I’ll bet I am already on the list......

Wow you can perform the basics attributes of a good citizen!!! But you need the Chief Gate Rapist on a monitor in front of you to direct your actions?

The item was about the Rapist on monitors not whether “you” know shi.. from shinola. Yet you defend the Rapist? and her putting her butt ugly mug where it doesn’t belong?

You’re right, you don’t get it. Sheeple never do....watch out for the cliff.....take the rest of the sheeple with you. That would be a GREAT public service.

I wrote this nasty gram email to Wal-Mart:

I see that many Wal-Mart stores will soon begin running so-called "public service" announcements from the federal government at your check-out lanes. The title of the program is called "If you see something, say something" (this sounds like something you'd see in Communist Cuba, where neighbors spy on neighbors and report to the government). Given this current administration's attempts to paint many that disagree with their policies as "extremists" or potential "terrorists", while coddling (i.e., giving them the same right as citizens to be tried in our judicial system, etc.) our true enemies, middle eastern young males - who have committed the vast majority of terroristic acts around the world since the 1960's, I view this new "program" as government propaganda, and inappropriate to FORCE-FEED your customers. I want a pleasant and eifficient shopping experience - FREE FROM POLITICS - when I visit Wal-Mart, or any other retail establishment. If you go ahead with this ill-advised plan, I will discontinue shopping at Wal-Mart until this "program" goes away. The federal government, especially the current left-wing democrat-run iteration, has vastly expanded the scope and reach of the highest levels of government, so much so, that I would not have been surprised to start seeing large, idealized statues and pictures of our "dear leader" - Obama in public. WHY, given the fact that the federal government is spying on citizens, planning assasinations of citizens, groping and taking nude pictures of us at airports, splashing our radio and television with "public service" messages, etc., would YOU, a retail company, add to this over-reaching of their power and scope? It makes no sense. Please reconsider this "partnership" with the current congress and administration before there is a massive customer backlash against this ill-conceived relinquishment of your privately owned retail space to the federal government. Thank you.

We all need to express our disgust with this "partnership" in no uncertain terms at...

I’ve been here for 10 years next month ... nearly as long as you. And I agree ... with Boo. If I see a terrorist assembling a bomb ... I will call a cop BUT if I see a guy in Walmart peacefully wearing a side arm .. as I occasionally do, I WON’T call a cop like some hysterical idiot in Florida did last month.

Why would a guy wearing a sidearm be a problem? I do that too. I’m talking about ~suspicious~ behavior, not normal behavior. Some here would apparently just walk on by the bomb in a truck and figure it’s somebody else’s problem.

Pardon me if I got a little snippy. I do that sometimes when people wish I was dead.
