You’ve probably heard about the teenager in Iowa, apparently raised in an arch-conservative home, who snapped over the issue of illegal immigration, who went to his high school and started shooting everyone in sight.
Well, that’s not strange.
It never happened.
Except, of course, in a training session at Treynor High School, involving Iowa police, firefighters, hospitals and other officials.
Now it also has some Iowans concerned about why it’s conservatives who are singled out as the booger-men.
According to the Associate Press report on the controversy — which, of course you are never going to hear much about on the glowing tuber — “State director of the Iowa Minutemen Robert Ussery says the drill’s scenario is in poor taste and has a political agenda.
“But the drill’s director Doug Reed said Thursday that the scenario is ‘completely fictitious’ and the immigration issue was incorporated to get Homeland Security funds to cover the costs of the training exercise.”
That’s why you didn’t have a gun-man who was upset over any of the Left’s agenda items.
Is this starting to make sense?
If you want to get federal funding, you need to develop an exercise that paints the conservative agenda in the terrorist mode.
Remember what the event organizer said, “the immigration issue was incorporated to get Homeland Security funds to cover the costs of the training exercise.”
Apparently you couldn’t just train for any old event, you need a juvenile who’s been so indoctrinated into hate by his conservative family that he goes nuts and shoots up a school. As the AP story explained: “Officials say the drill’s fake scenario would involve a teen who has ties to a white supremacist group and is angry with illegal immigration.”
And we are supposed to believe there isn’t a hidden agenda at work in our nation?
