New Terrorists

Look at this picture. Appears to be Americans protesting the abuse of eminent domain. You know, that little law saying that the government can take your house and/or land.

Well, in a manual made public on the internet this week, the state of Virginia now says people that protest against the abuse of that law are terrorists. Everyone in that picture above could probably be shipped off to prison now for all we know.

Apparently not wanting to sell your home, especially if they lowball you on it (a common practice in these cases) can get you on a watch list. Having binoculars, video cameras, pads and notebooks are now apparently terrorist tools.

So now these people are now in the same group as with Hamas, Al-Qaeda and Islamic Jihad. Here's a scan from the manual.

Paul Watson says: Reading further into the manual, associations between domestic terrorists and the supporting the American Revolution are subtly made. In Alex Jones' 2001 documentary 9/11: The Road To Tyranny, FEMA officials give a seminar in which they identify George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and other founding fathers as terrorists.

The manual encourages people to report any suspicious activity to an authority figure. Presumably, if property rights activism is deemed suspicious then anyone protesting or communicating about the recent eminent domain issue will be reported and investigated on grounds of terrorism.

The manual concludes by encouraging state employees to seek more information from FEMA and Homeland Security.

Shortly after 9/11 a Phoenix FBI manual that was disseminated amongst federal employees at the end of the Clinton term caused waves on the Internet after it was revealed that potential terrorists included, "defenders of the US Constitution against federal government and the UN, " and individuals who "make numerous references to the US Constitution." Lawyers everywhere cowered in fear at being shipped off to Gitmo.

This manual is another surreal and frightening reminder that government officials are being trained to embrace a Gestapo like mentality whereby any political activism or even individualistic outdoor leisure activity is deemed to be suspicious and a possible indication of terrorism.
