Because the mother fuckers are scared, that's why.
Read what the man actually said.
“But we also must concern ourselves with a different type of threat. We face an escalating danger from self-radicalized individuals within our own borders,” he said.
“Horrific terror incidents like the tragic shootings at Fort Hood and last year’s Boston Marathon bombing demonstrate the danger we face from these homegrown threats,” Holder said in the video posted on the department’s website.
“Now -- as the nature of the threat we face evolves to include the possibility of individual radicalization via the Internet -- it is critical that we return our focus to potential extremists here at home,” Holder said.
Cue the NSA information dragnet.
Now ask anyone on my Bloglist there on the right how many times they have seen .Gov cruising their site.
I have been blogging since 2006 and I can tell you for a fact that the government reads the blogs religiously.
They see what we talk about. They know what pisses us off.
They also know that the anger level has spiked considerably in the last few years, rightfully so in my opinion.
They got the message loud and clear down in Bunkerville that the breaking point is very near.
They are worried.
Our government damn well knows it is playing with fire because it got it's fingers burned.
So now, because our Judiciary system is completely broken, they are going to resort to the only play they have in their book.
So basically if you read between the lines at what Holder actually said, they are going to utilize the NSA's internet scouring abilities and start going after people they think may be getting out of hand, by their unfathomable standards.
The last time they did this, a certain segment of our citizens with a particular political bent were the targets.
We are not playing children's games here. The potential for abuse is off the scale.
The Attorney General of the United States of America just plainly stated that he has authorized a government task force to hunt American citizens, using the internet, based on what they read, see, hear and say on the internet,by using the worn out pretense of keeping us safe, from ourselves apparently.
What they plan to do in response is as yet, unknown.
Remember, these people have the NDAA now.
So don't tell me these people aren't worried. If has come to the point that Holder is very publicly announcing this maneuver, they are seriously worried about people here at home getting froggy.
They damn well should be.
This would be a good example why, too.
