Someone with a smartphone pointed it out the window of his high-rise and “filmed” (“digited”?) unmarked military helicopters.
This is what liberals call “the black helicopter” mentality. It afflicts far-Right conservatives and people with camcorders or smartphones.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune played along. It assured readers that “authorities” — no names — “are reassuring worried residents that those mysterious helicopters flying low over parts of the Twin Cities metro area Monday night aren’t anything menacing.”
Or, in a more familiar phrase, “Move along. There is nothing to see here.”
The paper explained:
The U.S. Special Operations Command has been conducting routine urban-environment training in Minneapolis and Saint Paul since Aug. 19, supported by police in both Minneapolis and St. Paul.
The training, which had been conducted in locations not easily seen by the public, became more visible as of Sunday, when helicopters became part of it. Residents can expect to see or hear low-flying military transport helicopters, specifically Black Hawks and smaller Hughes 500s between 7 p.m. and midnight.
The paper assured readers that the flights were coordinated withe local authorities and the Federal Aviation Administration.
Coordinated.I feel better now.
“Exact training times and locations are not being released to prevent people from gathering to attempt to watch the training and creating a safety hazard.”
Safety hazard. Yes. I feel better now.
It is important that U.S. Special Operations Command get training. Special Ops are not the same as PsyOps.
Black Helicopters are normal for Special Ops. But they are never used in SpyOps.
I know you will understand the difference.
Move along. There is nothing to see here.
