If I said you were a unicorn and we have to indefinitely detain unicorns because we’re at war with unicornucopia, could the scam be any sillier? I don’t know, it’s pretty silly that so many people seem content to go along with it, even while the government is feeding and riding the unicorns into battle in libya and syria just as they did in afghanistan and yugoslavia. It seems money can actually buy mass stupidity. Amazing.
There have been so many anti-terrorism laws passed since 9/11 that it is hard to keep up on what kinds of things might get one on a “list” of suspected bad guys.
We’ve prepared this quick checklist so you can see if you might be doing something which might get hassled.
The following actions may get an American citizen living on U.S. soil labeled as a “suspected terrorist” today:
- Criticizing the government’s targeting of innocent civilians with drones (although killing innocent civilians with drones is one of the main things which increases terrorism. And see this)
- Stocking up on more than 7 days of food (even though allMormons are taught to stockpile food, and most Hawaiians store up on extra food)
- (Not having a Facebook account may soon be added)
Holding the following beliefs may also be considered grounds for suspected terrorism:
- Liking the Founding Fathers
- Being a Christian
- Being “anti-nuclear”
- Being “anti-abortion”
- Being “anti-Catholic”
- Being “anti-global”
Many Americans assume that only “bad people” have to worry about draconian anti-terror laws.
But as the above lists show, this isn’t true.
When even Supreme Court Justices and congressmen worry that we are drifting into dictatorship, we should all be concerned.
We aren’t “drifting” into dictatorship. We are being pushed and bullied and herded into dictatorship by people with names and faces and institutional affiliations with historical connections to treason and mass murder and war for profit. Despite their tailored suits and shiny white shoes and new BMW’s and ivy league diplomas, these are not nice people. But maybe if you keep your eyes closed you’ll be safe eh? And your kids won’t be slaves or worse.
