Free Speech–Revisted

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, whom might be a Presidential Candidate said that, “…the country will be forced to reexamine freedom of speech to meet the threat of terrorism.”

What? Why?

“…to reduce terrorists’ ability to use the Internet and free speech to recruit and get out their message,” the article states.

So the Constitution is going to be revamped to “meet the threat of terrorism”?

…”meet the threat of terrorism” with more terrorism because everybody is a ‘terrorist’ right?

Everything that is done in today in government is seemed to be prefixed with “terrorism”–to stop it, to reduce it, to prevent, etc.

Anything that may be proposed may be the most blatant violation of a law, but it seems that when “terrorism” is brought in the picture it doesn’t matter…everybody but a select few people are not ‘terrorists’…everbody else is.

The ‘terrorists’ are always about to attack, release something, strike fear, etc.

But they never do…and when people begin to question or doubt…a terrorist is caught, or a bomb goes off, or a nation has WMDs, etc.

Makes you wonder who the real ‘terrorists’ are.
