The natural and customary act of gathering together with like minded people to petition the government for change can now lead to you being labelled a ‘domestic terrorist’ by said government, simply because you dare to question their ‘almighty’ authority. A written exam given by the Pentagon to it’s prospective lackeys, labels protests as a form of “low level terrorism”, illustrating perfectly, how First Amendment rights no longer mean anything to those in control.
The exam, or ‘indoctrination paper’, is given as part of the Department of Defence employee’s ‘training’ and in a routine multiple choice question, it asks “Which of the following is an example of low-level terrorism?” the choices being “Attacking the Pentagon”, “IED’s”, “Hate Crimes” and “Protests” with “Protests” apparently being the ‘correct’ answer.
Ann Brick, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union, which obtained a copy of the paper after a Defence Department employee who was taking the test printed one out, said “It’s part of a pattern of equating dissent with terrorism. It undermines the core constitutional values that the Department of Defence is supposed to be defending”, while George Martin, co-chariman of United for Peace and Justice called “illegal”, saying “Protest in terms of legal dissent has to be recognised, especially by the authorities. It’s not ‘terrorism’ or a lack of patriotism. We simply care enough to be active in our government.”
Both Brick and Martin are of course correct and indeed, what we are now seeing is the steady decay of what was laid down for the people by their forefathers, using acts of state sponsored terrorism as the excuse for this unlawful erosion of rights. The right to free speech, the right to peacefully assemble, the right to bear arms and to be given due process in a court of ‘law’ are all steadily being removed and in order for the few in control to be able to successfully accomplish this, they need a herd of ignorant, self serving drones who will enforce the will of the state on their fellow man without question, which is exactly what ‘re-education’ examinations for government employees like this one are all about.
