The author of the bill says :
In a speech on the floor of the House before the vote, Congresswoman Jane Harman (D-California), the chair of the House Homeland Security
Subcommittee on Intelligence and author of the bill said, "Free speech, espousing even very radical beliefs, is protected by our Constitution - but
violent behavior is not. Our plan must be to intervene before a person crosses that line separating radical views from violent behavior, to understand
the forces at work on the individual and the community, to create an environment that discourages disillusionment and alienation, that instills in
young people a sense of belonging and faith in the future."
In the same speech, Harman explained why "homegrown" terrorists are a threat to the US. She offered the explanation that adolescents who might be
susceptible to recruitment by gangs might also be potential terrorists.
"Combine that personal adolescent upheaval with the explosion of information technologies and communications tools - tools which American kids are
using to broadcast messages from al-Qaeda - and there is a road map to terror, a 'retail outlet' for anger and warped aspirations. Link that intent
with a trained terrorist operative who has actual capability, and a 'Made in the USA' suicide bomber is born,"
The bill specifically identifies the Internet as a tool of radicalization. "The Internet has aided in facilitating violent radicalization,
ideologically based violence, and the homegrown terrorism process in the United States by providing access to broad and constant streams of
terrorist-related propaganda to United States citizens."
Next false flag event they will have to use another excuse to hating US citizens freedoms .
