According to the Liberty Voice, there is a new definition for terrorist.
TerÂ·rorÂ·ist (noun): Anyone Who Disagrees with the Government
Well, according to a law school professor, pursuant to the Military Commissions Act, â€œAnyone who â€¦speaks out against the governmentâ€™s policies could be declared an â€˜unlawful enemy combatantâ€™ and imprisoned indefinitely. That includes American citizens.â€
And according to an FBI memo, peace protesters are being labeled as â€œterroristsâ€. Indeed, police have been terrorizing children, little old ladies and other â€œdangerousâ€ people who attempted to peacefully protest.
And a 2003 FBI memo describes protestersâ€™ use of videotaping as an â€œintimidationâ€ technique, even though – as the ACLU points out – â€œMost mainstream demonstrators often use videotape during protests to document law enforcement activity and, more importantly, deter police from acting outside the law.â€ The FBI appears to be objecting to the use of cameras to document unlawful behavior by law enforcement itself.
And the Internet has been labeled as a breeding ground for terrorists, with anyone who questions the governmentâ€™s versions of history being especially equated with terrorists.
