"Clergy Response Teams" Enlisted by DHS

Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot.

[Approximate transcript of video here.]

If you're now asking yourself Did I seriously just see the director of the Caddo-Bossier Office of Homeland Security confirming that they are recruiting clergy to help keep the sheep calm in the event of a declaration of martial law in the US? the answer is yes, why yes you did.

I honestly don’t know what to make of this. It seems like complete crockpottery, the real stuff of tinfoil hat legend—but there's a news report out of Louisiana, and a minister, and a DHS official, all confirming it like it's No Big Deal, just some population management training in case of a national emergency that forces our government to send in troops, that's all, ha ha. No big whoop.

Pam points to a World Net Daily (of all places) article about the program, and there's more at AlterNet. Oy.
