Snitch for American Freedom?

"If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever."
O'Brien to Winston, 1984

If you've traveled by air, visited Walmart, or bought a cup of coffee from Starbucks, then you've surely heard the new slogan of American Fascism, "If you see something, say something." That's how the Dept of Homeland Security is asking Americans to spy on one another and report any "suspicious behavior" so we can all be safe...under the government's boot heel!

I was thinking of a name the DHS could use for this program. What do you think of, "Get-Stop-Oh". The thought being that you Get something to report, thereby Stop(ping) an otherwise Oh (boy) moment.

I suppose we could just abbreviate the slogan as "Gestapo", making it easier to remember. Oh that name already taken?

  1. What's really ironic about "see something, say something" is that if you speak up when it's someone of a protected class (muslim for example) you've just incriminated yourself as a racist or islamophobe. Last I heard the muslim "clock boy" and his family are suing the teacher that "said something".
