It’s a story the establishment media is largely ignoring – a tent city set-up by FEMA at Monmouth Park in Oceanport, New Jersey, for Hurricane Sandy victims more closely resembles a military concentration camp than something provided by a loving and humanitarian government.
The Asbury Park Press managed to talk with internees who described huddling in freezing cold tents with Blackhawk helicopters circling above.
“The elections are over and here we are,” a resident told the Asbury Park Press. “There were Blackhawk helicopters flying over all day and night. They have heavy equipment moving past the tents all night.”
He said FEMA stopped them from taking photos of “Camp Freedom” and turned off the WiFi and said they couldn’t charge their smart phones because there wasn’t enough power. “Every time we plugged in an iPhone or something, the cops would come and unplug them,” he said.
The man described the “micro-city” (as FEMA calls it) as a prison. The Red Cross promised facilities with washing machines and hot showers, but sent victims to live in unheated tents.
FEMA’s response is predictable. After all, it was designed for martial law and rounding up and interning people in concentration camps. FEMA’s disaster response role in basically a sham and a public relations front.
