The FBI – Drowning In Counter-Terrorism Money, Power and Other Resources – Will Apply The Term “Terrorism” To Any Group It Dislikes And Wants To Control And Suppress - Washington's Blog



“Abuses Of Power Always – Always – Expand Beyond Their Original Application”
Constitutional lawyer Glenn Greenwald writes:

Documents just obtained from the FBI by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund reveal, as the New York Times put it, that “the [FBI] used counterterrorism agents to investigate the Occupy Wall Street movement, including its communications and planning” and in general show “how deeply involved federal law-enforcement authorities were in monitoring the activities of the movement.” The heavily redacted documents, which can be read here, reveal numerous instances of the FBI collaborating with local police forces and private corporations to monitor and anticipate the acts of the protest movement.

As obviously disturbing as it is, none of this should be surprising. Virtually every seized power justified over the last decade in the name of “terrorism” has been applied to a wide range of domestic dissent. The most significant civil liberties trend of the last decade, in my view, is the importation of War on Terror tactics onto US soil, applied to US citizens – from the sprawling Surveillance State and powers of indefinite detention to the para-militarization of domestic police forces and the rapidly emerging fleet of drones now being deployed in countless ways. As I’ve argued previously, the true purpose of this endless expansion of state power in the name of “terrorism” is control over anticipated domestic protest and unrest.

It should be anything but surprising that the FBI – drowning in counter-terrorism money, power and other resources – will apply the term “terrorism” to any group it dislikes and wants to control and suppress (thus ushering in all of the powers institutionalized against “terrorists”). Those who supported (or acquiesced to) this expansion of unaccountable government power because they a.ssumed it would only be used against Those Muslims not only embraced a morally warped premise (I care about injustices only if they directly affect me), but also a factually false one, since abuses of power always – always – expand beyond their original application.

Mr. Greenwald is correct.

The Federal government is throwing walls of money at internal “terrorism-related” funding, even though the threat of terrorism is absurdly over-hyped (although government support for Al Qaeda and Iranian terrorists – and see this isn’t helping. )

On the other hand, the government is using laws to crush dissent, and it’s gotten so bad that even U.S. Supreme Court justices are saying that we are descending into tyranny.

For example, the following actions may get an American citizen living on U.S. soil labeled as a “suspected terrorist” today:

Being young (if you live near a battle zone, you are fair game; and see this)

Using social media

Reporting or doing journalism

Speaking out against government policies

Protesting anything (such as participating in the “Occupy” movement)

Questioning war (even though war reduces our national security; and see this)

Criticizing the government’s targeting of innocent civilians with drones (although k!lling innocent civilians with drones is one of the main things which increases terrorism. And see this)

Asking questions about pollution (even at a public Congressional hearing?)

Paying cash at an Internet cafe

Asking questions about Wall Street shenanigans

Holding gold

Creating alternative currencies

Stocking up on more than 7 days of food (even though all Mormons are taught to stockpile food, and most Hawaiians store up on extra food)

Having bumper stickers saying things like “Know Your Rights Or Lose Them”

Investigating factory farming

Infringing a copyright

Taking pictures or videos

Talking to police officers

Wearing a hoodie

Driving a van

Writing on a piece of paper

(Not having a Facebook account may soon be added)


And holding the following beliefs may also be considered grounds for suspected terrorism:


Being frustrated with “mainstream ideologies”

Valuing online privacy

Supporting Ron Paul or being a libertarian

Liking the Founding Fathers

Being a Christian

Being anti-tax, anti-regulation or for the gold standard

Being “reverent of individual liberty”

Being “anti-nuclear”

“Believe in conspiracy theories”

“A belief that one’s personal and/or national “way of life” is under attack”

“Impose strict religious tenets or laws on society (fundamentalists)”

“Insert religion into the political sphere”

“Those who seek to politicize religion”

“Supported political movements for autonomy”

Being “anti-abortion”

Being “anti-Catholic”

Being “anti-global”

“Suspicious of centralized federal authority”

“Fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation)”

“A belief in the need to be prepared for an attack either by participating in … survivalism”

Opposing genetically engineered food

Opposing surveillance

As people learned in Nazi Germany, staying silent when “other” types of people are deprived of their rights only ensures that others will not lift a finger for us when repressive authorities take away our rights.

Cointelpro is the past, forget about it.

so what if they k!lled all the Black leaders who ever tried to bring Black people out of their sickly state.

that was allllllllll in the past, and now there are no more Black leaders left to worry about anyway.

true. but the fact of the matter, is that people have to let the past go at some point, because time isnt stopping for anyone, its not even about fairness and sh*t, its about reality. you gotta take what you have and do you best to overcome sh*t

All this true, but I have yet see a baby come out full grown.....it's what the child goes through that makes them the person they are today.....the point is the past is just as important as the present and the future.......people tend to only remember the good aspects of the past.....and pretend that it's only those things that set the course for the present.....when all has to be embraced in order to make a better future for all....not just some....In this instance people keep wanting to talk all this proof of a dominant government and how they want to take over....and not acknowledge that it was thier own willingness to let these same things happen to the underclass in America that made it possible for the country to be in the shape that's it's in......don't blame the government...blame yourselves.....because tat is the same exact argument that so many of them have given to minorities.....the rules don't change and neither does the game....people made thier beds....now they need to lay in it and STFU about it
