America Is Now A Police State

The FBI raided the homes of a number of anti-war activists in Chicago and Minneapolis. The Activists are planning demonstrations against the FBI. Is this a sign of a growing American police state? Former Reagan official Paul Craig Roberts argued that the US government is establishing in the mind of the public that anyone who criticizes the War on Terror is aligned with terrorists. He further argued that under the rubric of terror the government has stripped American's of their civil liberties.

Anti-war activist Mick Kelly whose home was raided, sees the FBI raids as harassment to intimidate those who organize war protests. I wonder if Kelly is underestimating the threat. The FBI’s own words clearly indicate that the federal police agency and the judges who signed the warrants do not regard antiwar protesters as Americans exercising their Constitutional rights, but as unpatriotic elements offering material support to terrorism.

“Material support” is another of those undefined police state terms. In this context the term means that Americans who fail to believe their government’s lies and instead protest its policies, are supporting their government’s declared enemies and, thus, are not exercising their civil liberties but committing treason.

As this initial FBI foray is a softening up move to get the public accustomed to the idea that the real terrorists are their fellow citizens here at home, Kelly will get off this time. But next time the FBI will find emails on his computer from a “terrorist group” set up by the CIA that will incriminate him. Under the practices put in place by the Bush and Obama regimes, and approved by corrupt federal judges, protesters who have been compromised by fake terrorist groups can be declared “enemy combatants” and sent off to Egypt, Poland, or some other corrupt American puppet state – Canada perhaps – to be tortured until confession is forthcoming that antiwar protesters and, indeed, every critic of the US government, are on Osama bin Laden’s payroll.-
It Is Official: The US Is a Police State


  1. Police state for subpoenas... oh Chicken Little, is the sky is falling already?

    You can read a non-propagandist version of the story here. I will add that if nothing comes of this (and I have no way of knowing... please don't raid me and take my computer), I would like to see citizen harrassment charges brought against those who ordered this. Since it's left-wing activists, something tells me it didn't come from "the top," so to speak.

  2. Wo, wo, wo, WO! Canada is a puppet state?

    *Sits down*

  3. I thought Canada was a state, like Oklahoma, or Europe.

  4. On another note: you don't want to be tortured in Canada. The soundtrack includes Bryan Adams, Celina Dion and post-"Jagged Little Pill" Alanis Morissette. They make you play goalie without pads during hockey team practices. You've heard of waterboarding? We're talking snow-boarding. No, there's no half pipe, just mounties shoving ice in your mouth until you get brain freeze.

    Damn hosers!

  5. Yes, T.C., you're living in a corrupt American puppet state. Stop with the denial already!

  6. As long as it's not a sock puppet regime. Sock puppets frigthen me.
