Ter ror ist (Noun): Anyone Who Disagrees with the Government

Any American Who Criticizes the Government May Be Labeled a Terrorist

I noted in 2009:

The Department of Homeland Security and police forces label anyone who they disagree with or who disagrees with government policies as terrorists .

Don’t believe me?

Well, according to a law school professor, pursuant to the Military Commissions Act, Anyone who speaks out against the government’s policies could be declared an unlawful enemy combatant and imprisoned indefinitely. That includes American citizens.

And according to an FBI memo, peace protesters are being labeled as terrorists .


Anyone who disagrees with the acceptable way of looking at things is a terrorist.

How is this different from Stalin or Mao’s use of labels such as enemy of the state ?

This may have seemed over-the-top to some, but events have proven it true.

For example, the following is considered terrorism or suspected terrorism in modern America:

In fact – since 9/11 – virtually all dissent has been equated with terrorism.

As Paul Joseph Watson notes:

Of course, the vast majority of people who visit Internet Cafes use cash to pay their bill. Who uses a credit card to buy a $2 dollar cup of coffee? A lot of smaller establishments don’t even accept credit cards for amounts less than $10 dollars.

Other examples of suspicious behavior include using a residential based Internet provider such as AOL or Comcast, the use of anonymizers, portals, or other means to shield IP address (these are routinely used by mobile web users to bypass public Internet filters), Suspicious communications using VOIP, and Preoccupation with press coverage of terrorist attack (this would apply to the vast majority of people who work in the news or political blogging industry).

Searching for information about police or government is also listed as a potential indication of terrorism, as is using a computer to obtain photos, maps or diagrams of transportation, sporting venues, or populated locations, which would apply to virtually anyone who uses Google Maps or Google Earth.

People who may wish to keep private the contents of a personal email or an online credit card purchase by attempting to shield the screen from view of others are also characterized as potential terrorists.

Business owners who spot patrons engaging in these types of activities are encouraged to call the FBI’s Joint Regional Intelligence Center (JRIC), after first gathering information on license plates, names, ethnicity, and languages spoken.

In total, there are 25 different CAT flyers aimed at businesses from across the spectrum everything from hobby shops to tattoo parlors.

As we have documented on numerous occasions, the federal government routinely characterizes mundane behavior as extremist activity or a potential indicator of terrorist intent. As part of its See Something, Say Something campaign, the Department of Homeland Security educates the public that generic activities performed by millions of people every day, including using a video camera, talking to police officers, wearing hoodies, driving vans, writing on a piece of paper, and using a cell phone recording application, are potential signs of terrorist activity.

The CAT program again underscores how federal authorities are empowering poorly trained citizens to become terrorist hunters, stoking fears that America is sinking deeper into a Stasi-style informant society.

In modern America, curling up in a ball to avoid police violence may also be considered active resistance justifying the use of more force, including baton strikes.

And even pointing out tyrannical trends may be grounds for harassment.

Note: Some also claim that copyright infringers are terrorists, and swat teams have been deployed against them. See this, this, this and this. I’m not condoning copyright infringement, but merely citing to the all-pervasiveness of the “terror” label. And given that even grandmas and children might innocently and unwittingly download copyrighted content, any tendency to use the terror label is troubling.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Any support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

Please remember I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has been taken offline by their original hosters which would be unavailable for viewing if it wasn't for this site. Therefore I would kindly ask you to help support me so that the site can continue doing what I think is an important job as well as reporting on stories the mainstream media would rather you didn't know about. I personally think it is important to host material such as removed reports that show that even FOX News once repoted on Israeli spy rings following the 9.11 hijackers before September 11th Or publishing the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was removed from their site once they enacted some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power.

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation, especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful!
