It had not crossed my mind until a few days ago, but the KGB (Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti) seems to have just switched nations -- from the Soviet Union to the United States. (Gasp!)
OK. Hold on a moment.
KGB, or Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti, translated into English is: "Committee for State Security."
So ... DHS stands for "Department of Homeland Security." Ummm.
Honestly, the only difference I see is that one is a "department" and the other a "committee."
Many conservative commentators have been warning for years that the US is becoming a police state akin to the old Soviet Union.
“One would think they would be just a bit more circumspect and maybe even exercise a modicum of restraint before dispersing KGB, I mean, DHS agents to free speech rallies protected under the Constitution,” Zelikovsky continued in her stinging criticism of the department’s latest activities. “The fact that they did this so blatantly despite the scrutiny they are under is symptomatic of a government on the verge of a constitutional breakdown — a government that doesn't hesitate to bully the little guy while giving the Constitution the proverbial political finger.” Source
