This is clearly a bill to convince us they are doing something. The only product of this Act appears to be spending more money on yet another Think Tank. Its meaning is null as acts of violence are already dealt with under or current legal system. Commit an act of violence and go to jail. What further is needed. Just busy work.
Its good to see some here read before they respond.

Prohibits the Department of Homeland Security's efforts to prevent ideologically-based violence and homegrown terrorism from violating the constitutional and civil rights, and civil liberties, of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents.

so the take over of America has begun... i didn't think it would start this soon, first it starts with this, then eventually total control,
enjoy what little liberties you have while you can, there is nothing you will be able to do about it,
those who go against these types of bills and against the government will most likely be taken out quickly and said to be terrorists

but thats not really a great comparison is it? i mean hitlers team went out of their way to first vilify the jews to the point that the mainstream population were all for what was going on, or at least complacent enough to not raise a stink about it.
who would we vilify enough to put into camps and force into labor? what would happen when the rest of the world found out? at the very least they'd quit doing business with us most likely.
i see your point i just cant see it happening here. not in this day and age...there are some who learn from the mistakes of history.
