Pre-2008 market crash: Ministry of Defense report frames middle class as “revolutionary,” “…as the burden of acquired debt and the failure of pension provision begins to bite.”
By Daniel Taylor
The government narrative of the “White Alqaeda” threat has been ongoing for at least 3 years now. The latest bombing in Norway is continuing the saga. In a recent development, a report from USA Today reads, “A police official tells the Associated Press that today’s terror is more like the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing by Timothy McVeigh than the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center by Islamist fundamentalists.”
This event is feeding into a growing trend in which western governments are turning their anti-terror apparatus inward. The Department of Homeland Security recently released a video in which the depiction of terrorist activity involved white men in every threat scenario.Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano recently made clear that domestic terrorism is at the center of the government’s focus.
In the aftermath of the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995, Time Magazine printed an article in which the government’s post-bombing propaganda campaign is expressed vividly. The article stated in part that individuals like Timothy McVeigh “…drew on widespread mistrust and even hatred of government power… Their coalition included well-known elements of far-right thought: tax-protesters; Christian home-schoolers; conspiracy theorists influenced by the John Birch Society’s fear of one-world government; Second Amendment activists for whom guns are an important part of an independent way of life; self-reliant types who resent a Federal Government…”
Behind the smoke rising from Oslo the economic collapse of the European Union – and the world – is brewing in the background. Resistance to the banking takeover has entered into the government threat matrix and the international criminal profile is turning towards white middle class individuals. As Kurt Nimmo documents at Infowars.com, the Oslo bombing suspect was a member of the “libertarian people’s party”, an equivalent of the Tea Party in the United States.
Before the crash of 2008 the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense foresaw a middle class revolution in its 2007 DCDC Global Strategic Trends report. “The middle classes could become a revolutionary class…,” the report states. “The growing gap between themselves and a small number of highly visible super-rich individuals might fuel disillusion with meritocracy, while the growing urban under-classes are likely to pose an increasing threat to social order and stability, as the burden of acquired debt and the failure of pension provision begins to bite.”
In November of 2008 the United States Army War College released the report Known Unknowns: Unconventional “Strategic Shocks” in Defense Strategy Development. The report identifies economic collapse as a reason for the defense establishment to conduct domestic operations.
The geopolitical ramifications of this event will pan out in the next week as the government codifies its official narrative.
