Ohio National Guard Training For Attacks From 2nd Amendment Tea Party Patriots

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Documents from an Ohio National Guard (ONG) training drill conducted last January reveal the details of a mock disaster where Second Amendment supporters with “anti-government” opinions were portrayed as domestic terrorists.

The ONG 52nd Civil Support Team training scenario involved a plot from local school district employees to use biological weapons in order to advance their beliefs about “protecting Gun Rights and Second Amendment rights.”

Portsmouth Chief of Police Bill Raisin told NBC 3 WSAZ-TV in Huntington, West Virginia that the drill accurately represented “the reality of the world we live in,” adding that such training “helps us all be prepared.”

Internal ONG documents provided to Media Trackers after repeated delays provide further context to what WSAZ-TV reported last winter.

In the disaster-preparedness scenario, two Portsmouth Junior High School employees poisoned school lunches with mustard gas, acting on orders from white-nationalist leader William Pierce.

The ONG team discovered biological weapons being produced in the school, requiring activation of containment and decontamination procedures.

Participants in the disaster drill located documents expressing the school employees’ “anti-government” sentiments, as well as a note identifying Pierce as the fictional right-wing terrorists’ leader.

ONG’s 52nd Civil Support Unit participated in a similar drill involving left-wing terrorists with Athens County first responders last year; public officials apologized for that training the next day in response to complaints from local environmentalist groups.

No apology to Ohioans who supported limited government and the Second Amendment appears to be forthcoming.

Scioto County Emergency Management Agency director Kim Carver refused to comment, telling Media Trackers she was “not going to get into an Ohio Army National Guard issue that you have with them.”

Ohio National Guard Communications Director James Sims II suggested Media Trackers was “inferring” from the ONG document’s contents as opposed to “what’s actually in the report.”

After excerpts of the report were read to him, Sims said it was “not relevant” to understand why conservatives may feel unduly targeted by ONG’s training scenario.

“Okay, I’m gonna stop ya there. I’m going to quit this conversation,” Sims concluded. “You have a good day.”

Buckeye Firearms Association spokesman Chad Baus told Media Trackers that “it is a scary day indeed when law enforcement are being trained that Second Amendment advocates are the enemy,”

“The revelation of this information is appalling to me, and to all citizens of Ohio who are true conservatives and patriots, who don’t have guns for any other reason than that the Second Amendment gives them that right,” Portage County TEA Party Executive Director Tom Zawistowski said in a separate Media Trackers interview.

Media Trackers reached out to Portsmouth-area state legislators Representative Terry Johnson and Senator Joe Uecker for comment about the drill, which took place within their respective districts. Neither replied to phone calls or emails in time for publication.

ONG’s January 2013 training exercise is one of many instances where government officials have identified those with limited-government or pro-Second Amendment opinions as potential terror threats.

In 2009, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies that a predicted rise in“right-wing extremism” would be fueled by “proposed imposition of firearms restrictions and weapons bans” and “the election of the first African American president.”

Throughout modern history, groups and individuals associated with left-wing causes have proven far more likely to commit acts of domestic terror.

In 2012, members of the anarcho-socialist Occupy Cleveland movement were arrested and prosecuted for attempting to destroy the Brecksville-Northfield High Level Bridge with explosives, to commemorate International Workers’ Day.

Last year, leftist groups Earth First and the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) claimed responsibility for the sabotage and property destruction of businesses in Washington and Van Wert counties. source – Media Trackers

      This is all part of the Leftist plan to Demonize anyone who is opposed to the Communist take over of America. ANYONE who could not see this coming is either a Fool or a member of the Communist takeover. The Media will contrive events that point to Tea Party members as far Right Wing Extremist who want to bring down a DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED GOVERNMENT. When all the while you and I know the exact opposite is the case. Barry Soetoro is nothing but a petty small time Street Thug who was put in to office by massive Voter Fraud and a complicit Congress. Massive Foreign illegal donations and a Media that would make 1939 Germany look like the Mickey Mouse Club. Any attacks that may come from anybody . Will be the result of a full blown assault on the Public’s Liberty and Freedom. If the Freaks that are running the show can’t prove otherwise. There will be a historic blood letting unparalleled by anything imaginable in our near future. The Communist Subversives in the Media are at the Core of this and will be among the very fist to feel the wrath of the American People once civility breaks down. Then a massive horde of millions will storm Washington and exact swift justice upon those who tried to destroy this . Republic. We are not talking Rocket Science here folks. Just pure History as it is in the making.

        So they fear the people huh. I do not understand this for if they govern according to the constitution the people all would be very happy so what is the problem?

        • Neanderthal

          Also remember this, everytime you pass one of your fricken laws that gets into our groin we buy more ammo. And OHIO a patriot is a patriot no matter what party they are from.

        A heavily armed motivated patriot behind every blade of grass. There is nowhere to run to so staying and fighting for our country is the only option.

      Ever see the movie Southern comfort where the guardsmen were picked off one at a time by local crackers? And anyway,look for the guard to maybe even switch sides!

      Did anyone see the obvious “Baphomet” face in the Ohio NG Logo? So who’s their GOD?

      ALL OHIO NATIONAL GUARD MEMBERS NEED TO BE REMINDED OF THEIR OATH OF DUTY. It is their duty to defend PATRIOTS and the Constitution not fight those who defend it! If I was in the National Guard up there I would have refused to participate due to my oath. Failure to uphold your oath makes you liable for all actions and deaths due to your actions… they will be held accountable for all deaths of any Americans by their own hands. GESTAPO for Obama does not keep you for being tried for treason and held accountable for any deaths of Americans at your hands!

      When the people fear their gubbermint, there is tyranny, when it ( GOD given liberties) is feared by those in the gubbermint, its called having a great day, for freedom rings true to the Patriots heart.
      Let there be wisdom in our thoughts and our talents to forego any further unnecessary friction between the governed and the free man be issued in accordance of the wishes of the free least their be war and turmoil is started unnecessarily. Those who portend to be there to secure these liberties are the very one who desire and make way to destroy the free man and his liberties, are not in the interest of freedom, rather in the business to control. It is this control they fear the most because it is some thing they have no control over. The free man is a talent unto himself to teach others the necessary skills to retain their freedoms, and thereby, exposing those who wish or desire to control, as those who will not be excused for their treacheries against the free. Let no man come in between the desires of the free and the lust of power for it is written there is great turmoil in the making, there will be distrust and anger present and the ill desires of the slave holders will accomplish nothing to relieve their suffering but, to continue and make harder the toils of the free and the determination to dispose those with evil in their hearts, let it be said, you were warned.
      The sad reality of our times is we are not even sure who the enemies of humanity are. Sure its a good guess that if they are training for some unforeseen event, even they are unaware of the event. The management of offensive vs. defensive resources make only wise decisions for the security of those in their charge, it does not mean we are their enemies or because they train are they the enemy, only that they suspect we are and in any event, even then who knows for sure?

      We The Patriots can only act in the defensive natures under the rules of land and war, we are not at liberty to take an offensive posture only in our defense of our lives and those under our charge. If the first shot is going to be made, let it be from them, not us.

      Our godly rights are our freedoms which must be protected at all cost and any in the line of disagreement, ( wishing to control vs. lead by example) or thinking they have a right to lord over the free man is taking a chance of retributions for which not even he can possibly understand or foresee. The chance of a not so wise choice is no further then the man standing next to each of us, make it matter only in the defense of freedom and choice to remain free from interferences by those who believe they have a right to lord over us as free men. This is the only thing which comes to mind that should matter to any of us. Just because they train, does not mean we don’t, nay far from it. IF you are a liberty determined Patriot, and surround yourself with those of like mind, and if not, why are you not training yourself and the others which surround your daily lives. It is only prudent to do so, especially in these times when the enemies are unknown to most but, suspected, not yet proven, by a few.

      Be careful out there fellow Patriots, wars and great world turmoil have started on lessor reasons and far less proof then a few training for a portend enemy. Don’t seek out attention to your cause it only furthers their suspicions of you as being described/determined to be/ as an enemy, you simply don’t need that. Be wise to seek council when needed and keep your tongue tied when not.

      Semper Fi.
