So if we were, as a collective, to post every word in the NSA Echelon watch list, in all of our signatures and emails... would it be a 'V' movement? The objective would be to overwhelm them with hit traffic that they would have to reset their servers too much?
But that would be 'immoral' wouldn't it?

I think it's about time the Citizens monitored 'Political Extremism' and had the capability to do something about it.

It's a shame we can't have newspaper reporters hacking into phones anymore, otherwise they could have helped out.

Oh well...

I don't know how they work, but that is possible. Every time a member posted a thread or comment it would be a new hit.

So, let's see. First, the conservatives say that Obama doesn't concentrate hard enough on monitoring the Muslim community online (which has been a huge gripe from the whining right), but now when the feds step up their monitoring of extremism, it's a bad thing. I know why it's a bad thing -- because it's monitoring far right TERRORIST groups. And yes, they are TERRORIST groups. If you notice, more than 50% of the major terrorist attacks in the US over the last 20 years have been committed by white Christians. Even outside of the US, you have Brevik, supposedly a member of the "Knights Templar", which sounds more like a group of kids playing guns and robbers outside.

What you all may need to realize is that when the US government says they are monitoring extremists, I doubt they mean the rather feeble chatter resulting from a bunch of tin foil hat lunatics on ATS. I guarentee you that if there was a major terrorist attack on our soil and there were public planning posts avaliable online on a message board, everyone on ATS would be #ting their fracking britches over how the Obama adminstration "dropped the ball" "should have been more vigilant", etc. You folks will never be happy. Accept it and move on.


Actually you are wrong, unless you believe Ron Paul supporters and those who vocally advocate that the government actually defend and protect the Constitution are indeed terrorists. Because DHS had already publicly stated that these are the "enemy". Also, informing on your neighbors? Sure sounds like Soviet/SA style secret police to me. I support the rights of all citizens, Muslim included. Your defense of tyranny is disapointing.

Seriously, anybody that quotes Wikipedia as fact might as well say their source "is a friend of my cousin's boyfriend's sister's husband who really know about that stuff." Why can no one do their own research anymore?

Thank you for picking up my slack there. I think the unfortunate problem is that far right Christians are so blinded by hate for Muslims that they don't see people like Brevik, the OKC bombers, etc, as "terrorists" because they define terrorist as a brown person, and there's no room for negotiation with that. To me, radical Christians are terrorists -- both rely on violence through terrorism, believe in converting other religions via force, and both are highly oppressive of women in every sense of the word. The difference is that because we are a deeply Christian country, you hardly ever hear about the oppression of women worldwide in other nations.

Christianity and Islam are the only two religions ever to go to war. I just can't believe reading every time on this forum about how terrible and oppressive Muslims are, and how their terrorists are such a threat to stability. Christians need to clean up their own backyard before they start denouncing the practices of another religion.

Actually, you would be the lazy one. If you bothered to go to that Wikipedia article, you would see that every single claim made in that post is correctly cited by news organizations. It just sounds like that you want to find any excuse to ignore the fact that over the last 20 years, Christians have been responsible for the lion's share of needless death and destruction via terrorism. How "Christlike".
