Senate Could Vote On Thought Crimes Bill Soon

JBS
November 30, 2007

When the full Senate returns to Washington in early December, they will soon begin to schedule floor votes on several pieces of legislation. One such piece of legislation is the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007.

With two versions of this bill currently in the Senate (H.R. 1955 and S. 1959), the legislation could attack First Amendment rights by mandating the government to clamp down on free speech online, among other things.

It should be remembered that following the Oklahoma City Bombing, the Clinton administration blamed not just the indicted perpetrators, Timothy McVeigh, Terry Nichols and Michael Fortier, but also all those who had like McVeigh, Nichols and Fortier protested against the government’s deadly actions at Waco and Ruby Ridge. Time magazine and other media organs joined the administration in charging that these “anti-government” protesters were actually “ideational co-conspirators” with the OKC bombers.

Like President Clinton, President Bush now equates opposition to his policies, especially concerning the War in Iraq and the “War on Terror,” as unpatriotic, or even treasonable. We are perilously close to losing our precious right to freedom of expression.

Would Americans be liable for arrest and prosecution under the “Violent Radicalization,” “Homegrown Terrorism,” or “Ideologically based violence,” provisions of H.R. 1955 and S. 1959, for example, for stating that citizens must be armed to protect themselves against government-imposed tyranny? Perhaps not just yet, but it is not at all farfetched to suggest that such a state of affairs could quickly develop, especially considering the virulent anti-gun bias of the elites in the media and government.

Having recently freed themselves by force of arms from the tyranny of King George and understanding full well the importance of an armed citizenry for the preservation of liberty, our Founding Fathers were adamant that Americans have the means and the determination to oppose any similar tyranny that might develop under the proposed new national government.

Thomas Jefferson was inflexible on the issue, asserting: “No free man shall ever be de-barred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain their right to keep and bear arms is as a last resort to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”

Alexander Hamilton wrote in The Federalist (No.28): “If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government …. ”

Noah Webster expressed the same principle this way: “The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.”

Patrick Henry declared: “Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined …. The great object is that every man be armed.”

George Washington averred that firearms are “the people’s liberty teeth.”

However, under H.R. 1955 and S. 1959, each of these Founding Fathers might be prosecuted for “planned use, or threatened use, of force or violence by a group or individual … to intimidate or coerce the United States government.”
