Outlaw That Speech Because it MIGHT Be a Threat…

It was only a matter of time before the Gabrielle Giffords tragedy was turned into a rationale for the government to take more of our freedoms.  This is how our government always responds to tragedy–it’s almost formulaic:

  • Step 1 – wait for tragedy to occur, or actually create the tragedy.
  • Step 2 – spread propaganda through the media, so everyone believes your story about the tragedy
  • Step 3 – pass laws, or institute policies, that take away people’s freedoms.
  • Step 4 – justify the increased Tyranny by citing the propaganda in step 2.

This same process, has led to the creation of most traffic laws, to the Patriot Act, to “enhanced pat-downs,” and countless other usurpations of freedom.

Shortly after Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head by a psychopath, and the media started reporting about Sarah Palin’s crosshair map (which, as far as we know had nothing at all to do with the shooting), I began wondering how long it would be before we started seeing attacks on our freedoms.  In particular, I was expecting attacks on the second amendment because Jared Loughner used a gun; and I expected attacks on free speech (and proposals for more control of the Internet) because Jared Loughner spoke out against the government on YouTube and Facebook.

And, so it begins.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    I agree with the comment they will go for the gun as usual. It is time we take a look at our social system that incubates our generations and find out who dragged this nation into the sewer while driving the economy over the cliff. It is time to check who promotes and support this pollution of our values, who pays for it and what is their purpose, don’t stop at “profit” those paying some of those extreme groups now are already billionaires, we know the agenda that is to get us off our pedestal of values and moral restraint. . Always look behind to the roots. Who Pays for it. Meanwhile time to tell the government to separate the Constitution Fourth Estate from the entertainment industry that puts out what our kids follow.
