Who Knew Bloglodytes Were Terrorists?
The Cavemen doth protest too much

Ya think the Doofus-In-Chief had any influence? Here's some of the article from; Enjoy. Pentagon Exam Calls Protests 'Low-Level Terrorism,' Angering Activists

A written exam administered by the Pentagon labels "protests" as a form of “low-level terrorism” — enraging civil liberties advocates and activist groups who say it shows blatant disregard of the First Amendment.

The written exam, given as part of Department of Defense employees’ routine training, includes a multiple-choice question that asks:

“Which of the following is an example of low-level terrorism?”

— Attacking the Pentagon

— IEDs

— Hate crimes against racial groups

— Protests

The correct answer, according to the exam, is

“Its part of a pattern of equating dissent and protest with terrorism," said Ann Brick, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union, which obtained a copy of the question after a Defense Department employee who was taking the test printed the screen on his or her computer terminal.

"It undermines the core constitutional values the Department of Defense is supposed to be defending,” Brick said, referring to the First Amendment right to peaceably assemble.

Bill Wilson, president of the Americans for Limited Government, which supported the Tea Party demonstrations earlier this year, agreed. "Groups like Al Qaeda and Hezbollah, paramilitary organizations that are striking at out at something they oppose or hate, that's terrorism," Wilson said.

"To equate that in any degree with citizens being able to express themselves seems to me to be headed down a road where all dissent is suspect and questionable."
The ACLU and Americans for Limited Government in agreement? Who says God doesn't exist?

1 step closer to the Obama version of totalitarianism.

& yess for the ACLU to be on the right side for once is proof that God exists. How else do you explain a miracle like that?
