Will posting comments here put YOU on the government's watch list?
Gun Rights Examiner ^ | October 10, 2010 | David Codrea

Posted on 10/10/2010 6:46:16 PM PDT by Neil E. Wright

Several developments have occurred in recent days that indicate something as innocuous as visiting pro-gun rights websites that are critical of government Constitutional compliance, and especially participating in comments and forums, can results in heightened law enforcement scrutiny and even as a supporting criteria for "legal" intervention.

On Friday, I told WarOnGuns readers I was aware of a child welfare case in New Hampshire where one of the criterion for removing a child from its parents was an ostensible membership of the father in what protective services was characterizing as "a militia known as the Oath Keepers."

Long-time readers know we've discussed Oath Keepers--specifically not a militia group--many times, including attempts by the Department of Homeland Security, the Southern Poverty Law Center, opportunistic politicians, and certain media outlets to conflate them with violent haters. For this, and other reasons, I told WoG readers I was deferring to Rhodes to take the lead on this, and maintaining contact with him behind the scenes.

He has since issued this report, used as the basis for a WorldNetDaily story by Bob Unruh. It appears the father in question's tie to OathKeepers was that he commented on their forums. A danger, per Rhodes:

But an even more fundamental point is that regardless of the other allegations, it is utterly unconstitutional for government agencies to list Mr. Irish’s association with Oath Keepers in an affidavit in support of a child abuse order to remove his daughter from his custody. Talk about chilling speech!

And the demonization of Constitution loving Patriots continues, and gets turned up a notch.

I'm wondering when posting on FR will get you on the "list".

Of cxourse we’re on a list or two somewhere, or more. I’d assume as much. If enough people get on ‘the list’, what are they going to do with it, anyway?

Remember those “liberal” “losertarians” and “Islamofascists” who thought THE PATRIOT ACT and the other pathetic Bushian overreactions to 911 were a threat to liberty and a surrender to the terrorists?

Let’s not.

If posting on a forum can get you on the goverment’s watch list, I bet there’s a special list reserved for those of us who donate to FR! It must be kind of like making the Dean’s list, except the Dean wants to punish you instead of reward you for knowing too much.

So how many semesters have YOU made Dear Leader’s List? :P

Whew!

Somebody's Watching Me - Rockwell song:

I'm just an average guy with an average life
I work from nive to five, hey hell I pay the price
But I want is to be left alone in my average home
But why do I always feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone

CHORUS:
I always feel that somebody's watchin' me
And I have no privacy
I always feel that somebody's watchin' me
Is it just a dream?

When I come home at night
I bolt the door real tight
People call me on the phone I'm trying to avoid
Well, can the people on TV see me or am I just paranoid

When I'm in the shower, I'm afraid to wash my hair
I might open my eyes and find someone standing there
People say I'm crazy, just a little touched
But maybe showers remind me of Psycho too much
That's why...

I always feel like somebody's watching me
Who's playing tricks on me
I always feel like somebody's watching me
Tell me it can't be

I don't know anymore
Are the neighbors watching me
Well is the mailman watching me
And I don't feel safe anymore, oh what a mess
I wonder who's watching me now?
Who?
The IRS?

I always feel like somebody's watching me
Who's playing tricks on me
I always feel like somebody's watching me
I can't enjoy my tea!

Who among us would care if we are being watched - are we not all essentially patriots, mutually pledging to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor?

Does anyone really still think this will be some walk in some park on a sunny day?

Are we worried we will lose our jobs? Our pensions? Our homes? Our families? Our freedom? Our lives? Are we afraid enough that we will stop posting here?

Are we afraid they will come for our guns? Haven’t we all been ready for a while now, knowing that at some point they WILL come for our guns? That they WILL harrass and persecute us. That they WILL be watching us, putting us on lists, finding out where we live?

By the standards of the Obama DOJ, and the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Boy Scouts and most Christians are now hate-group members, and must be watched.

Rest assured that Narus is tracking everything you say and do on the intertubes, and running it through the supercomputers for analysis.

Chances are, they and Google know more about you than your wife does.
