Before the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, the US Military intelligence spied on various domestic groups- one being Planned Parenthood.
Now since when does Planned Parenthood present a terrorist threat? Was someone afraid that they'd march into the olympics and perform abortions on unsuspecting women? They spied on individual persons as well.
The US Military is not allowed to spy on US persons or domestic groups. It's up to law enforcement and Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection channels. But really-- planned parenthood?
It has also been discovered that the military spied on the anti-war group Alaskans for Peace and Justice in 2005. Oh my god, those peace and justice groups are such a threat to the military industrial complex.
(Remember before the RNC spit on NYC by having their convention there a few years ago? They had peace and social justice groups spied on (but I don't remember who was doing the spying). )
Wait bizzaro America gets better... the pot calls the kettle black
The paranoid right wing nut jobs are out in full force over this event.Right wing slams White House for meeting with atheist ‘hate groups’
Officials from the Justice and Health and Human Services departments (not President Obama) met Friday with representatives of the Secular Coalition for America, an umbrella group that includes American Atheists and the Council for Secular Humanism.
"It is one thing for Administration to meet with groups of varying viewpoints, but it is quite another for a senior official to sit down with activists representing some of the most hate-filled, anti-religious groups in the nation," said Council Nedd, chairman of the religious advocacy group In God We Trust.
Since when are ethical humanists a hate group? Could you die? Is this not hilarious?
If Jesus Christ came back to earth tomorrow, who do you think would nail him to the cross first? Atheists or Christians?
duh. Hell the christian men would nail women, scientists, people of color and anyone who doesn't believe what they believe to the cross in a NY minute if they could. They'd then start nailing each other to the crosses over picky disputes over bible passages. I suppose some women might be spared to be used for breeding if of course they were lobotomized first.
This last part of my life is proving to be quite surreal. I feel like I'm living in a dystopian novel. Was I deaf, dumb and blind for the first part or what?
