If you see something, say something ...

h/t HuffPo

Banging the Fear Drum ... Daryl Johnson, former DHS Apparatchik, Finds Full Employment in Fear-mongering.

Think Progress article

Domestic Terrorism Analyst ... Lets define terms, shall we?
Domestic; Easy enough, eh? Shall we just call it America? That's the Fatherland in Homeland, right?

Terrorism; Now it gets sticky. What is terrorism? What does Wiki say?
There is no universally agreed, legally binding, criminal law definition of terrorism.[1][2] Common definitions of terrorism refer only to those violent acts which are intended to create fear (terror), are perpetrated for a religious, political or ideological goal, and deliberately target or disregard the safety of non-combatants (civilians).

So ... "those violent acts, perpetrated for political, religious, or ideological goals, intended to create fear and deliberately target civilians ... Sound ok?

Now ... who is creating fear? Maybe this vid will help.

Precursor to criminal activity?
Writing notes? Taking pictures?
Who is targeting civilians?  

Who's political goals are enhanced by this report?
One more Prime Rib dinner may be this guys greatest danger

This is perfect Orwellian Double-Speak. Like the PATRIOT Act ... The oligarchy fears you. An armed populace is dangerous and hard to control.

I'm seeing ASSWIPES* everywhere. Talk about precursors of crime!

ASSWIPE = hilarious!

Reading a recent interview given by the writers of the new "Captain America" film, I was reminded of your post. Here is what they said:

In 1942, it almost made sense to dress up in a flag and go fight Nazis. It was a metaphor for what everyone was doing. Today, if you go into your backyard shed and come out as Captain America, you’re on a watch list.
