New "Patriot" Act Creates American Gestapo

By Ben Frank  Posted by Rob Kall (about the submitter)       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   1 comment
Hitler had the brownshirts- his Gestapo that went around the country taking out dissenters. The New "Patriot" Act creates a new American Gestapo: (Section 605)
There is hereby created and established a permanent police force, to be known as the 'United States Secret Service Uniformed Division'. Subject to the supervision of the Secretary of Homeland Security...

The new USSSUD will be in DC, but also everywhere Bush travels, or former Presidents, or heads of state, or even at events labeled a "special event of national significance." (#11)

Has America ever had a federal police force? No. Why do we need one now? To protect us, or to oppress us? It sure looks as if this new police force will be have the authority to arrest anyone that gets too close to a member of Congress. Bush says trust me, it's for your own protection. Isn't that exactly what Hitler told Germany?

Section 602 states that Americans can be arrested for interfering with "National Special Security Events". You can even be arrested for conspiring to interfere with an "NSSE". In other words, an American citizen can be arrested for calling some friends and scheduling an unauthorized meeting with a CongressCritter.

Under this new draconian law, any event the DHS labels an NSSE opens the door to arresting citizens that dare to speak out. Free Speech, Freedom to Assemble? Not in Bush's America.

They even changed the language from events "designated" NSSEs to "described" as an NSSE. Again, opening the door to abuse- anytime a protest gets too big, the fascists can describe it as an NSSE and arrest anyone they so desire.

For protesting the actions of our government, a citizen could get 1 year in jail, or up to 10 years if they are carrying a "dangerous weapon" like a sign, or even a video camera, as the cop declares in this video.

This is Fascism, America. What are you going to do about it?
