New Thought Police Bill passes U.S. House 404-6, awaits Senate vote
(Jan 10, 2008)

Introduced by California Democrat Rep. Jane Harman, the First Amendment was trashed last Oct 27, 2007 as the U.S. House passed the “Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007,” by an overwhelming margin of 404-6.  The Senate’s version of this Bill, S. 1959, sponsored by Maine Republican Susan Collins, has little opposition and awaits passage.

Washington, DC – Listen up girl friends.  I know while you were busy shampooing your hair in the shower this morning and then applied Aussie hair conditioner after you washed your face with glycerin soap purchased from The Body Shoppe, you asked yourself an important question:  “Self, what the hell is ‘violent radicalization’ and ‘homegrown terrorism?’”  To which you answered, “My current Web Site criticizing the government for hyper-inflating the U.S. economy with non-collateralized Federal Reserve Notes?”

   Ya-yesss, girl friends.  Freakin A.

   So, I know you will be interested in knowing that Rep. Jane Harman, (D-CA), cleverly introduced an anti-First Amendment Bill into the U.S. House of Representatives on Oct 27, 2007, and got the sucker passed with an overwhelming margin of 404-6 while, ironically, invoking a rule suspension that curtailed all debate.  That’s called a Double Whammy against the First Amendment:  namely, suspending First Amendment rights to discuss a Bill that suspends First Amendment rights.

   Where does this pernicious piece of legislation currently hang?  Not in the Mall at The Body Shoppe.  In the U.S. Senate under Senate Bill S. 1959, sponsored by Janie’s buddster, Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine).  Wow, Democrats and Republicans coming together in a non-partisan raping of the American citizen, stripping us all of our inherent rights to think about thinking, to write or speak or Google or You-Tube it or Blog it in criticizing the government.  The crucial terms to understand in the new Thought Police Bill are the terms, “violent radicalization” and “homegrown terrorism.”

   The definitions of “violent radicalization” and “homegrown terrorism” can be stretched by the Federal Thought Police to mean such things as:

   (1) You run a Web Site and state that you disagree with the U.S. War in Iraq, somebody reads your Web Site and throws a rock at a cop in downtown L.A. citing your Web Site as the stimulus, and, hesto presto, you get arrested by the new Federal Thought Police for inciting “violent radicalization” and “homegrown terrorism” against the U.S. Government, or

   (2) You place a You Tube video online making fun of the Federal Reserve issuing non-gold backed Federal Reserve Notes into the U.S. economy, a million people run down and withdraw all their money from their bank and invest it into gold stock, causing long lines of irritated depositors who punch each other’s lights out trying to get inside to withdraw their money, and thus you receive a little visit from the new Federal Thought Police for inciting a run on the Bank of America, or

   (3) you stand up on a soap box on the campus of UC Berkeley and espouse a radical new idea, inherent freedom of speech, somebody throws a water balloon high up into the air and pours dish soap into the Northwest Water Fountain causing bubbles to run down the street, and you get arrested by the new Federal Thought Police for inciting a Bubble Bath Riot which threatens U.S. national security, or

   (4) your nose is too long.

   As expressed by Bruce Fein at the Washington Times on Dec 27, 2007:

   “…the Act aims to identify and stigmatize persons and groups who hold thoughts the government decrees correlate with homegrown terrorism, for example, opposition to the Patriot Act or the suspension of the Great Writ of habeas corpus.”

   Fein continues, “This Act will inexorably culminate in a government listing of homegrown terrorists or terrorist organizations without due process; a complementary listing of books, videos, or ideas that ostensibly further ‘violent radicalization,’ and a blacklisting of persons who have intersected with either list.”

   What can you do to stop the legislation creating a new Federal Thought Police?  Contact your U.S. Senator and threaten to throw tea into the Boston Harbor if he or she passes Senate Bill S. 1959.  By the way, don’t bother contacting President Bush to veto this Bill.  He’ll sign off on this monstrosity faster than a freshly fornicated fox in a forest fire. – FM Duck
