Report: More Than 100,000 Americans Are Domestic Terrorists

• Paul Joseph Watson
 An L.A. Times report which characterizes the Sovereign Citizen movement as “a major threat” on a par with Islamic extremism infers that “more than 100,00 Americans” are domestic terrorists as a result of their affiliation with the group.

The article, entitled ‘Sovereign citizen’ movement now on FBI’s radar, frames the belief that “the U.S. is essentially under martial law,” along with support for reintroducing the gold standard, as political views indicative of violent extremism.

The report quotes Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center, who in one fell swoop demonizes “more than 100,00 Americans” as domestic terrorists.

“This is a movement that has absolutely exploded,” said Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit organization based in Montgomery, Ala., that tracks domestic terrorists and hate groups. More than 100,000 Americans have aligned themselves with the sovereign citizens, the center said.

 The FBI?

If the FBI was even remotely honest it would have gone to Waco, arrested all the members of the BATF, and left the Branch Davidians alone.

You can't trust the FBI.

If you work for Government, and are simply following orders, and have never read the Constitution you swore to uphold, and think that you are doing the right thing when you give or obey unConstitutional orders, are you a terrorist?

This is such a hard question to answer. But if the answer is "Yes," then the nation has far more terrorists than people have been thinking. In fact, by the way we make war on other nations, and disobey the Constitution in multitudes of other ways, perhaps the statement should be, "Less than 100,000 Anericans are NOT domestic terrorists."

 . . .and if it's closer to 6%. Well, that would close in on 20,000,000. That's alot for the bad guys to worry about.

Homeland security only has to worry about 100,000 domestic terrorists? They wish. It'll literally be a hundred times bigger worry if:

If our state governors fail in their attempts to stand up to the federal government.

If our sheriffs fail to stand up to our federal government.

If we keep fighting wars and piss off more, battle-harden soldiers.

If our economy gets worse.

If our national debt gets worse.

If our federal government expands the Patriot Act to stifle our freedoms even more.

If our taxes keep going up.

If etc.

Then the 3% solution might apply. That's 10,000,000 armed protestors who all of a sudden understand what the second amendment is all about. Even if it's only 1%, that's still 3,000,000 pissed off armed patriots(and protestors, revolutionaries, terrorists, troublemakers, criminals, perverts, profiteers, mercenaries, adventurists, thrill seekers, foreigners, etc., etc. and etc. - yes, even some federal government employees and U.S. soldiers).

I hope it does not come to pass but it sure feels good that Fatherland, I mean Homeland, Security et al. are worried and afraid it might. It's a good fear that hopefully will bring them to their senses and stop treading on our rattlesnake friend.
