NEW YORK – When the editor of Law Enforcement Today sent me a story to look into this morning, I laughed. There’s no way this is real, I thought. It must be some crazy conspiracy theory.
After extensive research, I’m not laughing anymore.
The United Nations has legitimately posted a job opportunity for English-speaking DISARMAMENT, DEMOBILIZATION, AND REINTEGRATION (DDR) OFFICERS.
In. New. York.
The most concerning duty listed in the job description is this:
“Acts as a Focal Point for Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) components for two to three missions, responsible for planning, support to implementation and evaluation.”
To be clear, according to the UN’s website, Disarmament is:
“The collection, documentation, control and disposal of small arms, ammunition, explosives and light and heavy weapons of combatants and often also of the civilian population. Disarmament also includes the development of responsible arms management programmes.”
Demobilization is “the formal and controlled discharge of active combatants from armed forces or other armed groups.
The first stage of demobilization may extend from the processing of individual combatants in temporary centers to the massing of troops in camps designated for this purpose (cantonment sites, encampments, assembly areas or barracks).
The second stage of demobilization encompasses the support package provided to the demobilized, which is called reinsertion.”
Reinsertion is “the assistance offered to ex-combatants during demobilization but prior to the longer-term process of reintegration.
Reinsertion is a form of transitional assistance to help cover the basic needs of ex-combatants and their families and can include transitional safety allowances, food, clothes, shelter, medical services, short-term education, training, employment and tools.
While reintegration is a long-term, continuous social and economic process of development, reinsertion is short-term material and/or financial assistance to meet immediate needs, and can last up to one year.”
Reintegration is “the process by which ex-combatants acquire civilian status and gain sustainable employment and income. Reintegration is essentially a social and economic process with an open time-frame, primarily taking place in communities at the local level.
It is part of the general development of a country and a national responsibility, and often necessitates long-term external assistance.”
This doesn’t sound like a constitution-friendly job.
Desired experience is listed under this job description as:
“Seven years of relevant experience in disarmament affairs, political analysis or in national military or paramilitary service, preferably related to the design, implementation or review of DDR.”
The only language required for this position: English.
DDR officers have long been used in third-world countries where anarchy reigns. It has no place on American soil, so why are they recruiting for the position?
A few more duties applicants can expect to be responsible for:
“Provides Headquarters support in planning the civilian and military logistics support for DDR; Continually reviews DDR programme strategy and implementation through relevant documents, reports and code cables; Conducts field missions to assess implementation of established DDR programmes.”
Pardon my speculation, but it’s a little coincidental that this job was posted by the UN the day after Christmas, when there are anti-gun laws expected to be passed this month in Virginia… and where there’s a rapidly growing militia made up of citizens, veterans, and law enforcement officers.
As Law Enforcement Today has been reporting, Virginians are in fear for the second amendment rights amidst legislation likely to pass by a newly democratic majority General Assembly.
Over 100 local governments in the state have declared themselves Second Amendment Sanctuary locations. Citizens in many of those Sanctuaries have begun forming militias standing ready to fight for their rights.
Representative Donald McEachin encouraged Governor Ralph Northam to activate the National Guard to enforce these laws, which were said by Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring to have “no legal effect.”
That was determined to be an illegal use of the National Guard, and was destined to be ineffective anyway. Law enforcement and military members alike wrote in to Law Enforcement Today to say that they would have no part in unconstitutionally disarming law-abiding citizens.
Conservative blogger Daisy Luther wrote about the situation on her blog, The Organic Prepper.
“Despite the AG’s opinion and threats from the state government,” she said, “Virginians appear to have no plans to give up their guns or register them. Many members of law enforcement entities and the National Guard have said that they will not act on unconstitutional orders.”
Daisy also wrote, “So for all the folks who have been saying ‘nobody is trying to take your guns’ you might want to read this job listing and reconsider your opinion.”
In April of last year, President Trump revoked America’s signature (which was given in 2013 by then Secretary of State John Kerry) on the UN Arms Treaty.
The President said:
“Under my administration, we will never surrender American sovereignty to anyone. We will never allow foreign bureaucrats to trample on your second amendment freedom. I’m officially announcing today that the United States will be revoking the effect of America’s signature from this badly misguided treaty.”
“In recent days Democrats have proposed banning new guns and confiscating existing guns from law abiding citizens. What they don’t tell you is the bad guys don’t give up their guns. And you’re not going to be giving up your guns either.”
I hope you’re right, Mr. President, and so does Virginia.
In December, we shared a letter written by a member of the Virginia National Guard. In case you missed it, here it is:
Editor’s note: In the increased advancement of the infringing on our 2nd Amendment rights, a member of the Virginia National Guard is putting his/her state legislators on notice.
He’s submitted a powerful response to an article we ran recently about lawmakers in that state threatening to call in the Guard to confiscate guns and arrest the cops that refuse to violate then Constitution.
