Have you ever written anything in an email or in a social network chat room saying something like, “Global warming is a myth,” or anything else that would offend the current administration? If so, you may be under the watchful eye of the Interagency Working Group to Counter Online Radicalization to Violence (did you get all that?)
This “Big Brother” task force was created to keep an eye on the communications of extremists plotting violence, but as usual, the targets of this group are evolving into those whose opinions don’t match up with those of the administration. You know, the people who have the audacity to believe that we should follow the Constitution and who don’t want the federal government overstepping its bounds.
If that’s the way you think, if you home-school your kids or don’t get vaccinations or have “too many” children or stockpile guns and ammunition, well, then you’re considered a radical by the administration and worthy of being watched.
A while back, the so-called regulatory czar of the Obama Administration wrote a lengthy academic paper suggesting that the government should “infiltrate” social network websites, chat rooms and message boards to discover those who were engaging in “conspiracy theorizing.” Among the beliefs that were classified as “conspiracy theories” in this paper were that global warming advocacy is a fraud.
Take a look at the information in this link, “Big Brother Task Force to Monitor ‘Anti-Government Extremists.” The government’s increasing monitoring and persecution of people who don’t buy into everything the administration says is getting scarier by the day!
Is it just me, or is anybody else getting really sick and tired of the endless paranoia and Big Brother attitude we’re seeing from our elected officials? Does anybody else wish they were spending their time doing things that would actually improve our country instead of wasting time and money alienating people?
