Earlier this week, Department of Homeland Security boss Janet Napolitano traveled to Arlington, Texas, where the Super Bowl will be held to shill the government’s recently unveiled “If You See Something, Say Something” propaganda campaign.“We are partnering this year with the NFL on our ‘If You See Something, Say Something’ campaign and launching that NFL partnership right here at the Super Bowl,” Napolitano said during a press conference on Monday at Cowboy Stadium.
“The idea is simple,” she continued. “We are simply asking the American people to be vigilant, recognizing that our security is a shared responsibility that all of us must participate in. If a fan at the Super Bowl or any other American at any other place sees something that is potentially dangerous, then say something about it to local law enforcement or someone in authority.”DHS is also working with federal, state, local and private sector partners to support security efforts at the Super Bowl through additional personnel, technology and resources, according to a DHS press release.Public-private partnerships are the very essence of what used to be called fascism.
The government says there is no specific threat to the Super Bowl this weekend in Arlington, Texas. On the other hand, it warns that al-Qaeda “and other similar groups remain interested in carrying out attacks during such high-profile events,” according to the Associated Press. Examples provided include the 1972 and 1996 Olympic games in Munich and Atlanta.“Tight security around the massive Cowboys Stadium is likely to deter attacks at the actual event. However, this makes other less secure targets, such as nearby hotels and restaurants, more appealing for determined terrorists, according to a government intelligence assessment obtained by The Associated Press.
One concern would be a device exploding at local businesses or parking lots.”If the track record of al-Qaeda is any indication, the public has little to worry about. The underwear and Times square bombers were dismal failures. In numerous other cases, the FBI was responsible for motivating dim-witted patsies who posed absolutely no threat to the public but were depicted by the corporate media as insidious terrorists bent on murder and mayhem.The Super Bowl is merely another high profile event exploited by the government in order to acclimate the public into accepting troops on the streets and the militarization of local cops, firefighters, and first responders.

The distinction between local police and emergency workers and the U.S. Army no longer exists. The DHS “see something, say something” program encourages average Americans to rat out their fellow citizens.“For the second year, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano visited the host city to tour the Super Bowl stadium and review the NFL’s security plans. The federal government designates the Super Bowl as a Level One security event, which makes more money and resources available to secure the area,” reports the Associated Press. “During a news conference Monday, officials urged people to report any suspicious activity.”Last month the Department of Homeland Security’s “see something, say something” program resulted in the lockdown of a Montana Walmart after police received a report of an armed man acting erratically in the parking lot.
