Ohio National Guard Training Envisions Right-Wing Terrorism

This article comes from MediaTrackers.com

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 support 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.”

  1. I would just like to add this statement from the article at its original site:


    “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.

    I see this all the time, and it’s time that I, and all of us, start pointing it out whenever we run across it. The second amendment does not “give” us any “right” to keep and bear arms. We were born with that right, as our Founders said, and as the Constitution bears up in its construction and wording throughout. So many “Tea Party” people think they understand what liberty is all about, when they have not even looked into it wwll enough to understand that the Bill of Rights does not give us any rights. Sheesh! Our unalienable rights are not given us by government, but by Nature’s God. The Constitution and Bill of Rights is simply an attempt by this nation’s founders to protect what we come into this world already possessing.

    That one little tidbit of mis-understanding is an example of what I see as the reason the 2010 and 2012 elections, which produced so many Tea Party candidates, failed even though they elected the Tea Party candidates. Problem? The candidates did not know enough about the Constitution, but thought that they did.

    If you are reading this, please help us spread the word – the Constitution does not “give” us any rights – it protects rights we have from Nature’s God, which our Founders called “unalienable”.

    Thanks,
    Salute!

  2. Liberty, natural Liberty, is the only logically sound philosophy. It’s the only one in harmony with the laws of nature, the only one that’s rooted in basic human goodness. It also happens to also be the only one on which our Nation was founded.

    When I was a small child, I was told that I could be whatever I wanted to be, because I was born into a “free country.” I made the mistake of believing that garbage. The lie-by-omission was that I had to “free” myself first, and being young I didn’t question it.

    When I was in high school, I knew Democrats hated something I knew by instinct to be true but couldn’t quite put to words. So I became a Republican.

    Then when I became a young adult, I realized that Republicans only paid lip service to that hidden truth, so I became a TEA party Republican for lack of a better option.

    Then it occurred to me to really find out what that truth was, and it was that Natural Liberty is the only way of thinking that’s not infused with dehumanizing lies designed to keep me stupid, afraid, and submissive. So I became a libertarian.

    But the more I listened to libertarians, the more self-contradictions I heard, and the more group-think I detected, because by now I was so sensitive to group-think that I could smell it like a shark can smell blood. So I abandoned the Libertarians with their stupid Guy Fawkes masks and their moronic refusal to acknowledge a God as a granter of those same Rights that they claim can’t come from government. Then, and only then, was I ready to become an Oath Keeper.

    And that, my friends, is precisely why the III% is only the III%. The other 97% never even bother to move past that first tier of believing they were born in some fantastic kingdom where everyone is born free, and to that vast majority, we who have walked the path are strange and frightening people. We should now accept and embrace the fact that we are, as a good friend of mine puts it, a pariah among our countrymen, and yes, even our brothers in arms. That’s what makes a story like this tragic, but not surprising. It’s a sign of why Oath Keepers are a very special, more elite kind of servicemen. We’re the ones who have to hold the country to its conscience because they can’t be bothered with reason.

  3. If a Marine officer gives an unlawful order
    to fire upon Americans.
    The officer will be fragged or shot by his own men.
    Remember Vietnam? Lousy officers were dealt with.
    Do you here that NWO banker controlled Obamunista criminals?

    We will not fire on our neighbors, teachers, friends, brothers, father, or grandfather.

    If an unlawful order is given to fire on them or other Americans.
    The officer giving the order WILL be fired upon.
    Squads, then Divisions will stand behind AMERICANS.
    NOT NWO Obamunist Banker controlled communist.

  4. Elias:
    “The second amendment does not “give” us any “right” to keep and bear arms. We were born with that right,”

    Thank you! excellent and very critical item.

    as for the article’s topic – they keep claiming rightwing (or any other favorite term they maligningly use) are a threat to the public, what a pathetic lie;

    i think by now the public knows the gun guys are not any threat to the public – only to tyrants.

    i *hope* more of the public knows by now if any bomb harms people or takes down electricity or a bridge, that there is no benefit whatsoever to (insert any name here – gunowners, rightwing, teaparty, whatever) to destroying infrastructure and much less in destroying innocent lives. thus if any such bombing occurs, the public ought to know by now it’s the fake govt who did it! as yet another false flag op.

    patriots are indeed a threat – to tyrants, only.

  5. To Patrick C @ comment# 2:

    Patrick, that was an excellent recounting of political-perceptive transition. It greatly parallels my own experience which began in 1998 as President Clinton’s scandal with “that woman” broke. Having been home from the war for three decades, with no further interest in the goings-on of politics and government, I had presumed myself to be a Democrat/liberal. From that point I, as did you, began a shifting growth pattern of understanding which led me to move from Democrat to Republican to Libertaian to “small l” libertarian to Voluntaryist to Oath Keeper. That process took me about ten years, and I note now that I’ve been working with Oath Keepers for, in March of this year, five years.
    You have presented your journey in an excellent fashion. I thank you for posting that here, and I salute you for being in charge of your life. If you don’t mind, I am saving your writing and may spread it around if a good opportunity comes along. Thanks, Brother.

    You can contact me by clicking on “Contact” at bottom of our banner atop of this page, and noting in the text box that you are sending message to Elias. I will be glad to send you my email so we can discuss doing something with your written piece.

    Salute!
