Thought Crime Comes Home

HR 1955

The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed HR 1955 titled the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007. This bill is one of the most blatant attacks against the Constitution yet and actually defines thought crimes as homegrown terrorism. The Bill passed 404-6. This Bill criminalizes any act of, or promotion of, anything the Government interprets to be “radical” or “extremist.” This may include Animal Rights, Environmentalism, Socialism, Labor Organizing, anything that may upset the status quo, hell anything that may upset a politician. And that’s the scary thing here; it’s entirely up to State interpretation.
