SayUncle: Potential Terrorist – update

Kevin notes that the Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act passed the house. And no one wants to talk about it. The bill:

Directs the Secretary of Homeland Security to: (1) establish a grant program to prevent radicalization (use of an extremist belief system for facilitating ideologically-based violence) and homegrown terrorism in the United States; (2) establish or designate a university-based Center of Excellence for the Study of Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism in the United States; and (3) conduct a survey of methodologies implemented by foreign nations to prevent radicalization and homegrown terrorism.

So, how long before someone like me, who is known for perpetuating his radical views, shows up on a list? But I have nothing to worry about:

Prohibits the Department of Homeland Security’s efforts to prevent ideologically-based violence and homegrown terrorism from violating the constitutional and civil rights, and civil liberties, of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents.

Well, that’s a relief.

I’ve mentioned this act before. Past coverage of potential terrorists here, here, here, here, here and here.

    I wonder if this will let folks go after groups like PETA?

    This would be a poor time to mention the Constitution wouldn’t it?

    Anyone with at least one limb and a brain is a “potential terrorist”. Oh wait, maybe the limb isn’t a requirement– one could use one’s mouth.

    Everyone is a potential criminal. It’s just a matter of time before that idea is adopted as official policy. Some official policy already works that way, for instance, when you’re boarding an airliner or buying an NFA weapon.

    Just pray no one accuses you of being a “constitutionalist” that will, for sure, place you directly in the crosshairs.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
