With no surprise, Anonymous has come out with yet another leak exposing FBI's belligerent behaviour, towards American citizins and their civil liberties. A leak involving "FBI's Spy Files" was tweeted today by "@AnonymousIRC", a popular twitter user account with over 285 thousand followers. FBI is apparently taking an interest in finding ways to suppress citizens' freedom, and liberties by conducting secret investigations, on large numbers of people, with little to no grounds of suspicion other then the petty excuse, like using big words such as suspected "terrorist" activity as a means to trample on civil rights.
For those of you who don't know or may have been sleeping under a rock, Occupy Wall Street (OWS) is the name given to a protest movement that began on September 17 2011, in Zuccotti Park, located in New York City's Wall Street financial district.
In the text the "FBI Spy Files" stated:
"Referencing the demonstrations of the 2011 Arab Spring events, the Day of Rage' desires to mimic the revolutionary wave of demonstrations and protests which have occurred in the Arab world. The overall goal of the Day of Rage' protests is to conduct unorganized protests in major metropolitan areas with special attention on banking and financial institutions. [...] While Day of
Rage' does not condone the use of violence during the events, their website provides activists with information and training on "direct action, civil disobedience, how to deal with violence, and jailhouse solidarity", suggesting that violence and/or illegal activity is expected by event organizers."
I love how this is worded, to slant the investigations their way. Makes me mad and laugh at the same time. For example, they associated "2011 Arab Spring events" with "revolutionary wave." Essentially calling the protesters terrorists. When they are doing what our founding fathers would have done in the face of debt slavery.
But wait it gets better the phrase "information and training on direct action, civil disobedience" is reference to "violence and/or illegal activity".
You can't make this stuff up.
The definition of "Civil Disobedience" is:
"The refusal to comply with certain laws or to pay taxes and fines, as a peaceful form of political protest."
I love how the FBI totally twisted and manipulated this whole investigation, as if trying to satisfy the status quo. According to the FBI's logic, they can do what ever they want. Even if it means disregarding citizens' rights to privacy, all in the name of "National Security" and fending off the evil "terrorist" boogeyman.
As of October 2011 A request was filed and granted on behalf of the "Freedom of information act" to show that the FBI was investigating Occupy Wall Street protesters posted on MuckRock News.
While Terrorism in the United States can be a reality, like the 9/11 incident, the sad reality is that our government openly supports Terrorism, as admitted buy Obama recently. The United States government is creating a blow back and using fear as a weapon to expand social and political influence, just like al Qaeda terrorists, whom Obama now openly supports. Because of the blow back caused by the United States over "nation building" our government has made its country a target to major terrorist groups, it has created. The sad part is, the United States created these monsters. The US and its western allies fund their acts of terrorism and destabilisation, in regions such as Syria and Libya. Then, after the terrorists are done being 1984 pawns, the United States government fights them in some kind of twisted hero vs villain game, while using main stream news to make their actions look noble and just .
The united states government seems to be more invested in preventative crime rather than the right to due process. Currently, Protesters are being targeted as "Urban Terrorists" and many fear being harassed by the united states government, who is supposed to be protecting the peoples' constitution.
I like how the United Sates founding father, Benjamin Franklin, phrased it when he said:
"Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both."
Maybe next we will see law enforcement raiding little girls lemonade stands. Oh wait,this already happened. Oh well, at least this story further exemplifies how tyrannical this government really is. Good job big government, democracy could not be more safe without you.
