Tap Water Terrorism: Unfounded Quality Complaints An Act Of Terror Claims Official

Tap water quality complaints are now an “act of terrorism” under Homeland Security rules, or so says government officials from Tennessee.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, lately people have been all sorts of things acts of terrorism.

Noam Chomsky even claimed Obama is running a terrorist organization.

Sherwin Smith, deputy director of TDEC’s Division of Water Resources, dropped the bomb that “unfounded” tap water quality complaints are an act of terrorism:

“We take water quality very seriously. Very, very seriously. But you need to make sure that when you make water quality complaints you have a basis, because federally, if there’s no water quality issues, that can be considered under Homeland Security an act of terrorism.”

What makes this warning so ominous is this response came after concerned parents filed complaints that their children were becoming ill drinking tap water in Maury County, Tennessee. One woman said the taper water quality was so bad she’d still drink it but “prayer before the first sip.”

The response shocked and outraged attendees of the meeting. One person complained, “I think it’s just to quash us complicating life for them.”

The government officials who organized the meeting, representative Butt, also thought it was inappropriate to equate tap water quality complaints to an act of terrorism:

“I think that we need to be very careful with how we use the words ‘terrorist’ and ‘terrorism.’ I thought it was out of context. That did not apply to anything that we were discussing at the meeting.”

What should citizens do about the government claiming quality complaints amount to tap water terrorism?

    A complaint about water quality is an 'act of terrorism'? Has the government forgotten who serves whom? Fire their asses…out of a cannon if necessary. It is a sad day when domestic terrorists run our government posing (very weakly) as public servants. Stand up people, and take your country back.

    This Government ( I use the term loosely) is really starting to scare me. They are reminding me more and more every day of Nazi Germany, Stalin's Russia, the threat to remove someone without a warrant, to be held indefinitely without being charged and without a lawyer (this is how a domestic terrorist suspect is treated in America now) is EXACTLY like the other dictators that I mentioned operated. I mean did DHS really need 2500 tanks and 1.6 billion rounds of ammo for a legitimate use?

    Well you do know that Hitler was the first to put Fluoride in water, to subdue the Jews and to poison them. It is a poison that is in almost every city water in America.

    do they have editors at this website? I can't even take this shit seriously with all the blatant grammatical errors, it reads like Yakov Smirnoff wrote it.

  5. Almark Thaolen

    The article is sound, but there are mistakes throughout, whatever happened to a good word processor?

    Sherman Smiths' comment should be considered an act of terrorism. He is igniting a terrorist threat against the publics right to question the publics right to safe and consumable water, that under his administration, is perceived to be of questionable consumable quality.

    Sandra Stephen Shut the fuck up about fluoride in the water! The trace amounts of fluoride have done wonders in terms of dental health in this country. Uninformed statements like yours are no better than the DHS saying that complaining is an act of terrorism! Maybe worse since this delusional crap distracts us from real threats to our well being. Fluoride is not the problem!!!!

    The idea that the government should actually do its job terrorizes them. If they wanted to work for a living, they wouldn't be employed by he government.

    next is breathing… Homeland Security, NSA and FEMA must GO! Obama must bring our National Guard home from his illegal overseas wars and let them return to GUARDING THIS NATION from terrorists like our Federal Government!

    How is what Noam Chomsky said news? He's been saying that since the president's first term and he's right. He's also right about every president since FDR being a war criminal following the Nuremberg charter.

    This is not an act of terrorism but the right of the individual in a democracy to complain about the quality of service and water. This terminology is being used to "water" down the term terrorism so that when acts of genuine terrorism, such as 9/11 and the Boston massacre happen, people won't think so badly of the Muslims perpetrating an indiscriminate and brutal slaughter in the future.
