If you dare to complain about the poor quality of your tap water, you better expect a visit from Homeland Security. Because after all, as a water official has now verified on record, complaining about your tap water can be an act of terrorism.
Concerned about the high levels of arsenic in your water, or perhaps the known levels of radioactive contamination? Well you must be a terrorist, according to the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) and Homeland Security, who consider issuing such complaints to be classified under terrorist activity.
It all started when Tennessee residents in Maury County recorded an exchange with the deputy director from the state’s environmental entity TDEC, who issued a warning that complaining about low quality tap water could put you in Guantanamo. As you can hear from the video below, deputy director Sherwin Smith explains to a group of residents that issuing a complaint over the water supply can be considered an act of terrorism by Homeland Security.
According to Smith, you better make sure your claims can be verified by the water department employees before submitting them. In the video recording, which was posted following the outrage from citizens over the entire event, Smith is heard saying:
“But you need to make sure that when you make water quality complaints you have a basis, because federally, if there’s no water quality issues, that can be considered under Homeland Security an act of terrorism.”
The group responsible for the recording, called ‘Community eMpowerment’, ended up spotlighting their work on The Tennessean publication — an article that has now gone to be picked up by USA Today and others. And for good reason. The video highlights the growing nature of the Big Brother system that has engulfed the United States over the past several years through the enactment of unconstitutional legislation like the Patriot Act/FISA, the NDAA, and of course the establishment of a 100 mile wide Constitution-free zone by DHS that runs along the entire border of the US.
The assertion made by this man in the video is simply a byproduct of this system, which labels virtually all law-abiding citizens as terrorists. It’s also a byproduct of the lazy bureaucratic system that would rather throw around the label of ‘terrorist’ against those who seek to issue complaints in order to avoid actual work. In the past, we’ve seen 400 pound union heads get paid $156,000 a year to sleep and eat for a few hours a day at ‘work’, and this is the kind of corruption that goes on all over the place.
The bottom line? No matter what you do, think, or even say, it’s likely that the DHS has a way to classify it as a terrorist act — even complaining about the poor quality of your tap water.
