Government Targets American Bloggers As Enemy Propagandists
Posted by mythoughtsandnews on October 19, 2006
Recent scientific polls that show around 84% don’t believe the government’s explanation behind 9/11 and others confirming the fact that support for the war in Iraq is at an all time low have led the Bush administration to sharpen their knives against the new breed of perceived “enemy propagandists,” bloggers, journalists and online activists who dissent against the “war on terror.”
As Raw Story reports, CENTCOM announced earlier this year that a team of employees would be “[engaging] bloggers who are posting inaccurate or untrue information, as well as bloggers who are posting incomplete information.”
So when you’re wasting your time arguing the finer points of the collapse of Building 7 or the quagmire in Iraq with someone who seems unable to grasp basic principles, your foe could well be sat behind a plush U.S. government desk in a uniform.
When a government sees its people as a threat, you know something bad is around the corner. When a government sees its people as a threat, more rights and freedoms will be taken away in order to control them.
When all this happens, the American government becomes that which they are trying to stop.
