PATRIOT Act may be used against tea party

Filed under: Uncategorized — Greg in cheeseland @ 1:17 am

According to Douglas J. Hagmann, writing for Northeast Intelligence Network, a “federal intelligence source” revealed that “high-level discussions between top lawmakers and agency heads are ‘exploring the application of the Patriot Act against any right-wing individual or group that poses a danger to government operations.’”

Whether or not Congress people were subjected to taunting and racial slurs, bricks or bullets penetrating their office windows, or having a sibling’s gas line cut is not the issue I wish to examine here. The issue is poetic justice.

While any anonymous “source” quoted in media should be taken with a grain of salt, I hope this one is credible because the tea partiers deserve the same treatment that true libertarians and progressives were subjected to during the eight years of the Bush administration. Remember when people were arrested for wearing objectionable tee shirts, or removed for having anti-war bumper stickers in the parking lot at Bush rallies? Remember when crowds were herded into free speech zones behind chain link fences and barbed wire? Now it is your turn to experience oppression, right-wingers, conservatives, Republicans, tea baggers, or whatever you want to call yourselves.

Where were the tea partiers when the Bush administration was shredding our constitution? Where were they when Bush was spending billions on unnecessary wars? Where were they when Bush was running up a deficit by giving tax breaks to corporations that ship jobs overseas? Where were they when Bush was mortgaging our future to China? Where were they when Bush was creating a torture state to deal with a fake war on terror?

A lot of the tea baggers were probably cheer-leading the entire mess on. They were the ones calling anti-war activists “terrorist sympathizers.” They were calling 911 truthers “conspiracy freaks.” They were calling anyone who questioned Bush’s tax breaks to corporations and the ultra-rich “communists.” And they would not get their butts off the couch, turn off Fox News and do anything to stop the Bush administration from moving the U.S. a few steps closer to a corporate fascist state.

While Obama continues many of the same policies of his predecessors and is by no means a true progressive or even a liberal, one difference between Obama and Bush is that Obama is throwing a few bones to middle class consumers in America by trying reign in some of the worst corporate abuses. The other difference is far more obvious – there’s a black man in the white house!

Have fun in the America you helped create. Enjoy the McCain-Lieberman Police State Act (S. 3081: Enemy Belligerent, Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010). Hopefully the government will lock up all of the racists, hypocrites and arm chair warriors that are part of the tea party movement the minute they step out of line.

You’ve earned it. Happy tea-partying!
