U.S. Military Teaches that Protestors are "Low Level Terrorists"

"Those who make peaceful protest impossible make violent protest inevitable"- President John F. Kennedy


I'm with the ACLU on this one. Efforts to re-classify protest as terrorism are completely unacceptable in a nation which claims to be a free society. The highest law in the land, the Constitution, recognizes the right of the people to "peaceably assemble and petition the Government for the redress of grievances". In other words, to protest. Increasingly, our rulers are violating the Constitution which legitimizes their position by cracking down on peaceful protest.

The traditional role of the military is to protect our country from foreign invasion, and some would argue, defend freedom around the world. It appears the Goldman Sachs-D.C Beltway bunch wants to add a new mission to our servicemen and women- suppressing the members of the population who dare to protest their misrule.
