Well boy did we libertarians from the Bush era call it. The Patriot Act was never only going to be targeting those bad foreigners from the other side of the world who were in the United States for some reason. These things are always going to be turned on their own citizens. Governments crave power and they only like pushing it forward. So NPR is writing puff pieces about CIA operatives calling for a literal war against our own citizens,
When it comes to domestic extremists such as those who stormed the Capitol, a longtime CIA officer argues that the U.S. should treat them as an insurgency.
"Those used in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq."
Yes, a war against our own people. Because of one riot that made AOC cry because a capitol police officer looked at her mean.
One riot that they've been lying about to say was a "coup" or some nonsense. The hundreds of riots that happened during the Summer don't matter of course. What riots are you even talking about?
Wait, why are we in Iraq and Afghanistan again? Oh yeah, they lied us into those wars. I forgot.
But why should you listen to me? According to former communist and torture afficiando John Brennan, libertarians need to be looked at as potential terrorists now.
We are now looking forward that the members of the Biden team who have been nominated or have been appointed, are now moving in laser like fashion to try to uncover as much as they can about what looks very similar to insurgency movements that we've seen overseas, where they germinate in different parts of the country and they gain strength and it brings together an unholy alliance frequently of religious extremists, authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, Nativists, even libertarians.
Patriot Act 2 is already being discussed despite most not wanting Patriot Act 1 anymore (or at least wanting it heavily reformed).
Thank God we got rid of that authoritarian in the White House who was going to usher in an era of authoritarianism.
And all we had to do was create a totalitarian police state in order to do it...
