AN “ALICE-IN-WONDERLAND LIST”
by Brandon Gallups, ©2013, blogging at PPSimmons News
(Jul. 27, 2013) — The simple answer is … YES!
It has been well documented this last week that the reason our Senate gave to allow the continued spying on of ALL Americans is because “ALL Americans could be in communication with terrorists..
|The OLD Terrorists|
(See the story here:
Democratic Leaders: All Americans “May Be In Communication With Terrorists”)
So now let’s see how this is actually a true statement. What defines a terrorist … in today’s world?
Well, according to our current administration that list includes but is not limited to: Evangelical Christians, Catholics, Orthodox Jews, gun owners, returning veterans, pro-life groups, libertarians, people who believe in end time prophecy, constitutionalists….. and the Alice-in-Wonderland list goes on.
(From the Department of Homeland Security: Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment. Here is the document: http://www.fas.org/irp/eprint/rightwing.pdf)
How can it be that the very beliefs upon which this great nation were founded now constitute the beliefs of a terrorist?
When did this happen?
In my opinion this idea was started with the implementation of the “Patriot Act.” This was sold to us as “protection” from terrorists. I would be a liar to not admit that at the time of its passage that I was in full support of this legislation. After all we had just been attacked on our own soil, by people who had been living amongst us, our nation was hurting, we needed action! I also was a believer at the time that our government had some integrity left as a whole – boy, was I wrong! If we look, this one piece of legislation gave the government just what they needed to start “legally” collecting data on every American citizen.
So now we can easily see that the answer to our original question “Are all Americans really communicating with terrorists?” is without a doubt…… YES!
So you see it’s all in how you define a word. I know my definition of a terrorist certainly differs from that of our government.
So while there is definite reason for outrage in the fact that our elected government believes we may all be communicating with terrorists, may I submit that the greater outrage is that “WE THE PEOPLE” sat back and allowed ourselves to be classified as terrorists! We have all become way too comfortable. We believe the lies. We think that this can never happen to me or in my town. It has happened to you – in your town!
The time is now. Wake up, if you have any beliefs that line up with the above list of what constitutes a “terrorist” then guess what – you are a terror threat! If you are communicating with someone whose beliefs are on that list then – guess what, you are communicating with a potential terrorist!
These are very interesting, amazing, somewhat confusing and in my opinion very Biblical times in which we live. What will you do to make a difference? That is the million dollar question.
