Homeland Security has spent millions to secure their, and other federal, offices from riots. Why? Because food stamp benefits are being slightly reduced on November 1, 2013.
That is the first step. If this cut doesn’t spark enough violence they will make deeper cuts.
It will all be blamed on Republicans and the Tea Party who, they will say, initiated the sequester which caused these cuts. The media will faithfully report what the President and his minions say.
The Grand Old Party will be grand no longer.
For those of you who live in a city please be careful.
Fox News’ Neil Cavuto thinks the Department of Homeland Security’s $80 million outlay on armed guards to protect government buildings is directly connected to food stamp cuts set to take effect on November 1st, a day on which all hell could break loose.
The DHS announced its intention to hire a raft of new armed guards to prepare for “public demonstrations” and “civil disturbances” in upstate New York, adding that some of the guards would be posted outside IRS facilities.
Covering the story on his Fox News show, Cavuto said, “November 1st could be a very very iffy kind of a day….this could be all hell breaks loose day,” noting that the armed guards were not to protect government buildings from terrorist threats but “From American citizens because on November 1st the food stamp program is set to start decreasing the amount that is allocated to food stamp recipients….and they’re worried that violence will ensue.”
Cavuto’s concern that the cut in food stamp benefits could spark violence is legitimate given what happened when the EBT card system crashed for just hours earlier this month, prompting mini-riots and looting at several Walmart stores.
A scheduled cut in food stamp benefits which most Americans are seemingly unaware of threatens to cause unrest next month when families will be hit with a $36 dollar per month reduction in credits.”
