It seems that what could have been thought of as “mischief” or “disruption” by a couple of professional agitators 10 years ago, is now look upon as Terrorism. This all goes back to that wonderful piece of legislation called the Patriot Act. You know the Patriot Act right? The law that makes me fellow Republicans (not Conservatives) get all orgasmic over, because “we need to get dem terrists”.
When my fellow sheeple, your wish has finally come true.
Prosecutors in Ramsey County, Minn., have formally charged eight alleged leaders of the RNC Welcoming Committee — one of the groups organizing protests at the GOP convention in St. Paul — with terrorism-related charges, The Times’ P.J. Huffstutter reports.
Monica Bicking, Eryn Trimmer, Luce Guillen Givins, Erik Oseland, Nathanael Secor, Robert Czernik, Garrett Fitzgerald and Max Spector, face up to 7 1/2 years in prison under the terrorism enhancement charge, which allows for a 50% increase in the maximum penalty they could face.
It appears to be the first time criminal charges have been filed under the 2002 Minnesota version of the federal Patriot Act
So let me get this straight. These people, who are Americans, who felt it was their patriotic duty to challenge the RNC, are Terrorists? That’s a bit frightening. But again, I’m not surprised.
You see, the Federal Government, and it’s lackeys do not like people questioning them. So they make a law called the “Patriot Act” (such a joke) that makes anyone like the “RNC 8“, or someone like myself, a criminal. Now, I am not saying I agree with the political beliefs of the “RNC 8”, they are more of a leftist group, but I will show my sympathy’s to them. Because yes, according to the Federal Government, we who cherish the Constitution, are “Enemy’s of the State”. Ooooo scary.
This whole thing seems like a bad dream. People being locked up on “Terrorism Charges” because they don’t agree with the Almighty Federal Government, is straight out of “1984”.
War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.
