Did you know any of these things?

The United States has supposedly built concentration camps?

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2...

Also included in this article are U.S. Rep. Jane Harman, D-Venice ideas about a new way to expand the domestic "war on terror." Her Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 (HR1955), which passed the House by the lopsided vote of 404-6, would set up a commission to "examine and report upon the facts and causes" of so-called violent radicalism and extremist ideology, then make legislative recommendations on combatting it. This is related to the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, which labels animal rights protestors and activists as terrorists!

This article below discusses that fact for the first time since the Civil War, US Troops are being trained to take over whole villages and towns to capture and arrest anyone they deem a threat.

What do you think of these things? Any opinions?

Update:

The Act actually reads: those who "engage in sit-ins, civil disobedience, trespass, or any other crime in the name of animal rights" are terrorists. How is a sit-in an act of terror?? This is insane!

Update 2:

Dude, you guys are missing the point. If they can call a person in a sit in for animal rights a terrorist, what can they do to political protestors?

THAT'S the point.

Update 3:

If you look at just one pice of the puzzle, you cannot see the whole thing. These things are ONE piece of a puzzle. When you take them together with the other things that are going on, they look a little different.

Update 4:

Right. We've been engaging in "urban warfare" for years in Afghanistan and Iraq, right? Give me a break. We haven't fought anyone in an "urban" (as defined in the US) environment since WWII. What good is training in a US city going to do when you are fighting in the desert and looking in caves and huts, or tiny little cities that don't even have running water? Their "urban" areas are nowhere near ours, so what good is training in a US urban area going to do you over there? Maybe it's not for over there.

    Yeah, REX84 (Readiness Exercise '84) camps.

    I think someone needs to use a better grade of tin foil. They are all different takes by conspiracy loonies on mundane activities. The "concentration" camps are simply staging facilities that have been around for decades. Groups like ALF are terrorists, without a doubt. And US troops are training in urban warfare because that's what war has become. There is no such thing any more as open warfare as classically taught in military schools.

    Edit: you obviously have no idea what urban warfare is even about, so I guess I'll stop trying to make sense. Sorry to intrude in your fantasy world.

    People are too dense to get it. Maybe once they go out protesting Obama and get thrown in a detention camp, they'll understand the problem. If this nation believed in silencing dissent, we'd still be British subjects.

    It's all OK until someone comes busting YOUR door down in the middle of the night. Whether you think it couldn't happen to you isn't the point. The point is that, under the current laws, it COULD. And that should never be allowed to happen in this country, which is supposed to be a beacon of liberty and tolerance in the world. Remember Reagan's "shining city on a hill"? You think the "shining city" does stuff like this? It sounds more like Communist China to me.

    All these people bellyaching about how Obama is a socialist SHOULD be up in arms about the real threats to our liberty. The assault on the Bill of Rights began with the Patriot Act, and these people cheered it on all the way. Sickening.

    "The power of the Executive to cast a man into prison without formulating any charge known to the law, and particularly to deny him the judgment of his peers, is in the highest degree odious and is the foundation of all totalitarian government whether Nazi or Communist."-winston churchhill

    I like that quote. :)

    right, it is insane. Reminds me a bit of V for vendetta. Sometimes I wonder if that is what the 21st century holds.

    Animal rights activists go a little over the top sometimes. But they're not terrorists as long as they don't harm people...I guess...

  • 1 decade ago

    i believe in the right to protest...as long as you can do it in a civil manner..but those peta people and animal rights people..tend to get zealous in their efforts..they should be allowed to protest as long as they can hold themselves in a responsible light...if they cant..offf to jail they should go..and thats a protester for anything....
