Making The Roundup of UnPatriots Legal

Big Brother: House passes the "Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act"


The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed HR 1955 titled the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007. This bill is one of the most blatant attacks against the Constitution yet and actually defines thought crimes as homegrown terrorism. If passed into law, it will also establish a commission and a Center of Excellence to study and defeat so called thought criminals. Unlike previous anti-terror legislation, this bill specifically targets the civilian population of the United States and uses vague language to define homegrown terrorism. Amazingly, 404 of our elected representatives from both the Democrat and Republican parties voted in favor of this bill. There is little doubt that this bill is specifically targeting the growing patriot community that is demanding the restoration of the Constitution.
The definition of violent radicalization uses vague language to define this term of promoting any belief system that the government considers to be an extremist agenda. Since the bill doesn’t specifically define what an extremist belief system is, it is entirely up to the interpretation of the government.
This bill is completely insane. It literally allows the government to define any and all crimes including thought crime as violent radicalization and homegrown terrorism. Obviously, this legislation is unconstitutional on a number of levels and it is clear that all 404 representatives who voted in favor of this bill are traitors and should be removed from office immediately. The treason spans both political parties and it shows us all that there is no difference between them. The bill will go on to the Senate and will likely be passed and signed into the law by George W. Bush. Considering that draconian legislation like the Patriot Act and the Military Commissions Act have already been passed, there seems little question that this one will get passed as well. This is more proof that our country has been completely sold out by a group of traitors at all levels of government.


Read the whole thing as it spells out the specifics of the law. Everything has a lifespan, even forms of government. Russian Communism didn't fail because Reagan started Star Wars (and maintaining the balance of power bankrupted them) and said to tear down the wall, it fell because it was so corrupt. We should see a lesson there as we watch democracy turn into oligarchy turn into a police state.

    I love the part that says: "......Congress states in their findings that they should look at draconian police states like Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom as models to defeat homegrown terrorists."

    I can't speak for Canada or Australia, but with the exception of specific terrorist units, British police are unarmed, DO NOT carry Tazers, are not allowed to exceed speed limits except in an emergency, only allowed to use their flashing lights and sirens when giving chase or responding to an emergency, and generally do not behave like power-crazed, swaggering, bullying, weapon-toting, illiterate yobs in uniform, which has been my impression of many, though not all, US police officers in the 'Heartlands' of this nation.

    This legislation appears to criminalize not only free speech, but free thought. If I write that GWB is a useless bastard who deserves to be shot at dawn, am I "...facilitating ideologically based violence to advance political, religious, or social change?" According to this legislation, I may well be.

    And they have the nerve to call Canada, Australia, and the UK, POLICE STATES!

    And because they've now said it, Joe 'tell me what to think' America will henceforth blindly believe it.

    PS Are you aware this bill was introduced by a Democrat and co-sponsored by ten Democrats and only four Republicans?

    According to Colorado IMC:

    "One of their “Blue Dogs,” Jane Harman of California, introduced H.R. 1955 with 14 co-sponsors, including only four Republicans. The bill raced through two committees in the House and was brought to a vote on Tuesday, October 23, passing 404 to six. Three Republicans and three Democrats, including Presidential Candidate Dennis Kucinich of Ohio, are the only Congresspersons to vote “nay.”"

    How many Americans are out there who still believe Bush's policies will be reversed in January 2009?

    Having delved a little further, it would appear that 'Big Brother' and certain other political blogs are 'coloring the language' to gain effect. It would appear that the term 'police states' was not referenced by Congress in relation to the UK, Canada, or Australia, the actual wording being:

    "Certain governments, including the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia have significant experience with homegrown terrorism and the United States can benefit from lessons learned by those nations."

    We must all be on our guard against those who would exaggerate and distort to gain advantage. However, I believe the legislation itself is still dangerous and probably verging on unconstitutional. Not what one would like to expect from members of the Democrat party.

    I went and read the article you referenced. This is about how I feel:
    I’m not surprised because I have never had any real faith in the Democratic Party, however, there are those who share my sentiments in favor of civil liberties who do put their faith in this Party every election, and it is about time pro-Dem voters start paying attention to the Party’s disgraceful hypocrisy. If anything this is an opportunity for people to see this side of their praised Representatives. This bill’s bi-partisan support is a pretty clear depiction of this hypocrisy, which proves in my opinion that the Democrats are no solution to the Republicans. They are not a lesser evil than the Republican Party, as was the argument in previous elections.
