I know that I had read about this particular story back in 2004 but was reminded today of the sickness the story reveals about America. You see for 10 years a man would call restaurants, McDonald’s etc., saying he was an officer and getting grown men and women who were managers to take a young female employee into the managers office to search them for “stolen” dollars. When there was no money to be found, the “police officer” advised the manager to get a male employee to watch as the manager stripped searched the young girl, and that he was on the way. All along the way, no one, not the manager, not the young women and not the “watcher” ever questioned what they were being told to do. You see they were compliant. That is the title of the movie of the last known example in 2004 that played at the Sundance festival. Via Breitbart Hollywood Compliance
The picture is unsettling, and sitting through it is sometimes uncomfortable. But the question it raises—how can people be so easily manipulated by authority figures to perform vile acts against their fellow human beings?—has been contemplated before.
The movie brings to mind the Nuremberg trials of top Nazis after World War II (in which “only following orders” was resoundingly disallowed as a defense) and the famous Milgram experiments of the early 1960s, in which volunteer subjects were directed to administer electrical jolts to an unseen person in another room, and continued to do so even as simulated howls of pain mounted.
It is because government has grown so large, from the local to the state to the federal and that they all three have become so militarized in their dealings with Americans that it was quite simple for this animal to get these normal people to do abnormal things. It is the left, that has made the moral/immoral that ensured that again these normal people did not question the caller or call their local police department to check the validity of what the caller was saying. Just reading the story sent chills up my spine, I won’t be seeing it, because I and you know where this type of compliance leads and unfortunately we have already started down this path.
Just a seriously personal note about being compliant, speaking with a neighbor yesterday of whom I had spoken but never on politics, finally spoke about politics and she wanted me to know how “brave” I was to put my stickers on my car and my Romney/Ryan placard in my window. She is a government employee and said she just wants to get to retirement in 5 years and so she stays silent about her political leanings. I said it in a tweet and I say it here, that is sad. She is allowing and we all must admit that we too had allowed the left in this Country to bully us into silence in the past but NEVER AGAIN.
Freedom isn’t free and if Americans do not wake up and take back their country from these government bullies and Marxists, there will be more then fake officers on the phone there will be actual police/government officials making you compliant!
