Where political repression is sanctioned and organised by the state, it may constitute state terrorismgenocidepoliticide or crimes against humanity.
For example, on February 20,the State of Missouri issued a report entitled: The Modern Militia Movement.
In addition, people of various ideologies were singled out as being potentially dangerous. No left-leaning political ideologies or organizations were identified in the report. Neither were Islamic extremists mentioned.
Apparently the report only considered those who support candidates like Ron Paul or Chuck Baldwin are dangerous. This is exactly the type of tactics that were used in Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia to demonize and crush political opposition.
Perhaps you hate Ron Paul. What does matter is that when official government reports attack certain political groups, we are all being attacked. Why was there such an uproar over that report?
You can read a copy of this sickening report for yourself here: According to the Department of Homeland Security, you might be a domestic terrorist if…. Has your own government just labeled you a domestic terrorist? Even the big media networks are getting into the act. In fact, he used the slur more than once, and the fact that his guests laughed at the term means that they understood exactly what Anderson Cooper was trying to say.
The video of Anderson Cooper using the slur is at the end of this article. This all happened when Cooper had David Gergen and Ali Velshi on his show to discuss the events of the day. Gergen was responding to a question by Cooper about the Republicans when Cooper blurted out his graphic slur.
Gergen apparently got the joke and then continued by saying this: But there was an interesting Politico survey — it was out today that said that, you know, the president — the trust level in the president on economic issues is extremely high, and, you know, and everybody else in the administration is well below him.
But the Republicans are a little below that. At least Gergen was trying to get the conversation back on track.
But in response to Gergen, Cooper made this offensive remark: THIS is what we are to expect from our network news anchors now?
The video of this stunning exchange below…. This is the kind of thing that conservatives can not let go by. The Anderson Cooper comment must become a huge issue. Conservatives must demand an apology from Anderson Cooper.
