Cavuto links DHS armed guards with food stamp cut:
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.
As Infowars first reported on Monday, 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.
Cavuto’s guest Niger Innis, National Spokesperson for the Congress of Racial Equality, labeled the prospect “frightening,” adding “We are on a slow march to becoming Greece,” while blaming the fact that some 50 million Americans’ are dependent on food stamps on big government’s failure to spark a proper economic recovery.
Innis said that food stamp riots may not occur this cycle, but that they were a real threat for the future and that America was heading towards a European-style socialism where the population embraced an entitlement mentality, and that Americans should be “liberated” from their dependency on welfare.
The notion that Homeland Security is preparing for riots is an admitted fact. In June, it emerged that the DHS was purchasing top of the range body armor and helmets for FPS (Federal Protective Service) guards as part of preparations for “riot control situations.”
The federal agency also ran a controversial drill last year dubbed “Operation Shield,” during which FPS agents armed with semiautomatic guns were posted outside a Social Security office in Florida.
