speaking of fascism...

I found this post over at DU and it correlates with the blueprint for fascism by Naomi Wolf (see my post below) and Naomi Wolf's 10 East Steps to Fascism: #1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy. (That would be us. Seriously.)

Only six members of Congress voted against fascism. How the hell did they get this past us

On Tuesday Congress betrayed the American people. They passed H.R. 1955: The Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 by a vote of 404-6. What is HR 1955? Well lets just look at the text:

  • `For purposes of this subtitle:
  • `(1) COMMISSION- The term `Commission' means the National Commission on the Prevention of Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism established under section 899C.
  • ←→
  • `(2) VIOLENT RADICALIZATION- The term `violent radicalization' means the process of adopting or promoting an extremist belief system for the purpose of facilitating ideologically based violence to advance political, religious, or social change.
  • (3) The Internet has aided in facilitating violent radicalization, ideologically based violence, and the homegrown terrorism process in the United States by providing access to broad and constant streams of terrorist-related propaganda to United States citizens.
