The ongoing food stamp outage could trigger nationwide riots across the country similar to the recent unrest in Baltimore and Ferguson.
Thousands – if not millions – of food stamp recipients have not gotten their benefits nine days into the month due to “glitches” in the electronic benefit transfer (EBT) system, and Americans are worried that if the outage continues, mass civil unrest will erupt.
“Yes, the s**t is starting to hit the fan; get ready for riots when people without jobs start getting hungry,” Colo. resident Jeri Brace warned on Downdetector.com, the web site reporting the mass EBT outages.
Fear of riots is a common theme on the site’s comment section.
“The board is set for unbelievable rioting, looting and worse – and all that’s needed is a little spark,” Rob P. pointed out. “What better spark than one day, no one’s EBT cards work.”
It’s even been speculated the EBT system was intentionally shut down to fuel rioting and disrupt the presidential campaign as Donald Trump continues to sap away influence from the global technocrats meeting in Dresden, Germany, this week.
But one thing is for certain, however: by encouraging mass dependency on the welfare system, the Obama administration has ensured nationwide rioting due to a large-scale collapse of the food stamp program which can then be exploited to expand the federal government.
As we reported in 2013, the administration had a goal to dramatically increase food stamp enrollment in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
