Well this seems to go hand-in-hand with a news article I read today.
Supreme Court upholds controversial part of Patriot Act
The US Supreme Court on Monday upheld the constitutionality of a federal law that makes it illegal to teach members of a foreign terrorist group how
to use peaceful means to pursue political goals.
The statute, outlawing the provision of “material support” to designated terrorist organizations, does not violate free-speech and
free-association protections of the First Amendment, and it is not unconstitutionally vague, the majority justices declared.
The majority opinion, written by Chief Justice John Roberts, says that Congress intentionally wrote the statute with a broad sweep to outlaw material
support to terror groups in any form, including assistance or expertise that might help nudge the group toward nonviolence.
In the darkest world of conspiracies where government control potentially exists over a society of people who want nothing but peace and the weeding
out of corporate oligarchists, these are jigsaw pieces that put together a very morbid puzzle.
Add to this, the proposal to strip American citizenship away www.cnn.com...
those found to have supplied 'material support' (which now constitutes the mere giving of advice) to terrorist organizations defined by the
government... and we have set the stage for something sinister.
I would be disgusted, but not surprised, if this spying unit deems THIS site a tool being used to radicalize Americans into terrorist acts. Then,
accuses members of providing 'material support' to terrorists ... Then arrests ... then stripping of citizenships ... and the ball will be rolling
downhill fast as can be.
Hopefully something like this won't be the case. But the only thing that PROTECTS us from something like that, is the constitution. The
constitutional validity of the laws that are being passed must be put to question, but the Supreme Court Justices have been so swayed with this 'war
on terror' that they are letting the laws pass.
