A former writer and director behind the successful Call of Duty video game franchise recently expressed his desire to see American soldiers patrolling the hallways of public schools in the near future.
On Wednesday, nonresident fellow Dave Anthony at a recent meeting with the globalist Atlantic Council said it was necessary to have the military stationed at schools to combat the threat posed by Islamic terrorists, whom he claimed could already be working inside America.
“It could be that you have 100 of these guys who may be on our soil right now, who may even be U.S. citizens, who could legally walk into whatever gun store they choose, buy some assault rifles, and start attacking soft targets,” Anthony said, adding a jab at the Second Amendment.
“The threat now, the invasion, comes from within,” Anthony told the Council, adding he envisioned “the soldiers could operate like air marshals on commercial flights,” according to Bloomberg Businessweek.
“Imagine the concept of something like a ‘school marshal,’” Anthony illustrated. “Now these guys are U.S. soldiers who are in plainclothes, whose job and part of their responsibility is to protect schools.”
Admitting Americans would at first be apprehensive of having armed soldiers trained to kill occupying an educational setting, the writer of the bestselling video game of all time, “Call of Duty: Black Ops,” said marketing tactics could be relied on to “brainwash” the public into accepting the transformation of schools into militarized prisons.
“The public won’t like it, they’ll think it’s a police state,” Anthony confessed; however, he added, “All of these are solvable problems.”
“When we have a new product that has elements that we’re not sure how people will respond to, what do we do as a corporation? We market it, and we market it as much as we can—so that whether people like it or not, we do all the things we can to essentially brainwash people into liking it before it actually comes out,” Anthony outlined, comparing thought control to an aggressive ad campaign.
Though many public schools already employ some form of armed law enforcement units, the video game producer’s alarming suggestions come amid reports that schools in California have received used military equipment.
Just last month, we reported on the Los Angeles Unified School District’s acquisition of a 20-foot-long armored vehicle, as well as grenade launchers, formerly used in foreign battlefields by the U.S. military.
Also in September, we covered the San Diego Unified School District’s acquisition of a Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle, which they also claimed would only be relegated for use in “hostile situations.”
And in August, the Compton School Board passed a vote allowing campus officers to carry AR-15 rifles, guns which the leftist establishment media has demonized as “assault rifles,” and which the state of California has banned for public use.
The game producer’s comments also illustrate how public schools are being used to acclimate students into accepting and complying with a perpetual police state presence, where students are all guilty until proven innocent, and demonstrate how the War on Terror has re-aligned its cross-hairs to target the American people.
“Metal detectors at school entrances and armed police patrolling high school, middle school and sometimes even elementary school hallways acclimatize young people to being viewed as suspects,” writes Rutherford Institute President John W. Whitehead. “The presence of these police officers in the schools also results in greater numbers of students being arrested or charged with crimes for nonviolent, childish behavior. All too often, these incidents remain on students’ permanent records, impacting college and job applications.”
