I walked by the tv yesterday during the today show and heard them talking about a rise in militia groups, I seen then that political dissidents within
america are about to start being looked at in a new light.
Link to fox news story-
Now, "conspiracy theorists", and really anyone that disagrees with the government are about to put in the "enemy" category. It upsets me that they
claim that people that believe in "conspiracy theories" (and refer to two topics I've heard discussed here) are part of this problem that they are
trying to create. I personally don't find myself to fit under this label, I prefer to refer to myself as a well informed individual. Whether you
believe in a theory or not, just being aware of it, breaking it down, and considering it puts your mind to work and leads you to think about things in
a more discerning manner.
Now, my second issue..They are claiming that people that disagree are rascist psychos with guns. Now, while I'm sure that there are some klan type
organizations and neo-nazi groups down south and around the country, most people dissatified with the government and in militias (that I have met)
show no racial bias to anyone. Also, by them coming out with these claims are they trying to incite racial tension?
So now "we" are being labeled in a completely untrue and unflattering manner, and for what you might ask?
Thinking too much. That's what I believe this comes down to. People that are informed and aware of whats going on in their country and around the
world are not looked upon in a attractive manner unless their view of the country and world fit directly into the status quo. There are extreme
organizations out there but to fit all of these groups into the most extreme (they really seem to be portraying all groups as offshoot neo-nazis) is
Now this is how we are being portrayed, for disagreeing with the government and asking questions, as rascists idiots with guns that want to start a
revolution simply because there is a black man as puppet, I mean president. Not because the federal reserve system has raped our country and put every
american in debt, not because our country has strayed so far from upholding the liberties and freedoms we should enjoy, not because our government,
for the people, by the people, has more interest in private bankers than in it's own people, not because our government send it's youth to die and
suffer in unjust wars that have no purpose,not becuase we have been lied to and mislead by people in power for fifty, possibly, 100 years, not because
they uphold laws that the majority of the population disagree with, not because we see them invading into our privacy and lives every day, more and
more, not because WE ARE STARTING TO SEE PAST THEIR FACADE.
Nope, we are just a bunch of ignorant rascist idiots.
