U.S. Supreme Court: Verbal Support Of "Terrorist" Makes YOU A TERRORIST!

The traitorous black-robed tyrants on the Supreme Court have done it again, coming down on the side of the Fascist State against the rights of the people to free speech and association.

In a case pitting free speech against national security, the Supreme Court on Monday upheld a federal law that makes it a crime to provide “material support” to foreign terrorist organizations, even if the help takes the form of training for peacefully resolving conflicts.

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., writing for the majority in the 6-to-3 decision, said the law’s prohibition of providing some types of intangible assistance to groups the State Department says engage in terrorism did not violate the First Amendment.


The decision was a victory for Solicitor General Elena Kagan, who argued the case in February and whose confirmation hearings for a seat on the court are scheduled to start next week.

Oh yes, Obama's pick for the court will fit right in, won't she?

The law was challenged by, among others, Ralph D. Fertig, a civil rights activist who has said he wanted to help the Kurdistan Workers’ Party in Turkey find peaceful ways to achieve its goals.

On Monday, Mr. Fertig said the decision, which effectively ended 12 years of litigation, was a grave disappointment. “This is a very dark day in the history of the human rights struggle to assist groups overseas that are being oppressed,” he said.

The other plaintiffs were a doctor and six domestic organizations. Some of them said they had sought to help the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, a group that seeks to create an independent Tamil state in Sri Lanka.

Both groups, along with Hamas, Hezbollah, the Khmer Rouge and some 30 others, were designated as terrorist organizations by the State Department. The United States says the Kurdish group, sometimes called the P.K.K., has engaged in widespread terrorist activities, including bombings and kidnappings. The Tamil group, the government said, was responsible for a 1996 bombing that killed 100 people and injured more than 1,400.-Court Affirms Ban on Aiding Groups Tied to Terror

But the U.S. Government, through it Imperial Military, kills civilians in the hundreds of thousands, so wouldn't that be...oh my God! That makes all supporters of the United States Government...terrorists!

  1. Sad. I guess now challenging the PATRIOT act in the SC will have absolutely no effect. A shame.

    This is disturbing, but not unforeseen. I mean, didn't we know that the 'Court was just as corrupt as the Congress...only the 'Court had more legal standing? ^.^
