• The National Counter Terrorism Center Kids Page!

    Almost too much to bear, the National Counter Terrorism Center (NCTC) has a special kids page on its web site to, I guess, make kids happy about counter terrorism, or maybe to get them to turn in their parents for thought crimes.

    Your tax dollars pay for such Orwellian pablum as this:

    The people who work for the NCTC and our partner agencies have a vested interest in keeping the country and the world safe from terrorists and terrorist acts. Thinking of their families, friends, and country is more than motivation enough in this fight against terrorism.

    They also have a coloring book. The page has groovy multi-everything cartoon characters, including for some reason an African-American statue of liberty person and a hip computer kid named “Chip” in a wheelchair.

    It’s just like Glee!

      Holy-mother-of-mike-on-a-bike. I’m forwarding this NCTC kids’ link to my Congressman with an inquiry as to why we’re paying for this. (He’ll reply with a form e-mail from an intern, if he replies at all.)

      This intellectual dishonesty/propaganda reminds me of the manipulative BS practiced by Cuban communist party youth organs like Juventud Rebelde.

      The object is to indoctrinate kids early, and, as you note, tacitly encourage them to report on their parents. And after that, measures like the new law enforcement drones here in the national security state can handle the rest of the surveillance.


      Keep up the great work, your blog is very original, interesting, and informative.
