Alex Jones issues an alert as certain factions in Congress are moving very quickly to seize upon the tragic shooting in Arizona
to pass both gun control laws and controls on free speech under the guise of protecting political servants.
Alex dissects the emerging background and possible motives of Jared Lee Loughner, by all appearances deeply mentally disturbed, while the mainstream corporate media pose as the Left and demand draconian restrictions on the Bill of Rights.
The rush is on prey upon sentiments and use this tragedy to usher in an agenda the Obama Administration couldn't otherwise advance, but have planned since the beginning of Obama entered office. Holder and Obama heralded the return of the assault weapon ban early on in 2009, but the focus has always been on the available political currency. Rep. McCarthy also commented on 'seeing what she could pass.'
Congressman Robert Brady plans openly to ride on the backs of Giffords' attempted assassination and the murder of 5 others as well, with plans to "criminalize" threatening language or symbols against members of Congress. In the name of protecting our elected officials, Brady will help chill political speech, starting with the banning of over-zealous rhetoric like Sarah Palin's map which placed a "target" over a number of districts including that of Rep. Giffords.
Pima County Sheriff Dupniks and plenty of others, including Mark Potok of the SPLC, implicitly blaming the actions of the suspected shooter on a cocktail of angry 'rightwing' sentiment that has risen to the surface during the 2010 midterm elections.
Sheriff Dupnik lead the demands to reign in speech and tone down the rhetoric, lambasting the "vitriol" of pundits and politicians, openly challenging their right to express and defend their views and stating in his press conference that those who talk for a living 'have free speech,' but that such speech bears 'consequences.'
"When the rhetoric about hatred, about mistrust of government, about paranoia of how government operates, and to try to inflame the public on a daily basis, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, it has impact on people especially who are unbalanced personalities," Dupniks said.
Those in Congress, however, have already reciprocated with immediate legislation. The overtones are reminiscent of the rushed and pressured passing of the Constitution-shredding PATRIOT Act in the wake of 9/11. Now, as the War on Terror supposedly justified by the September 11 attacks has shifted into the war of suspicion on the American people, returning veterans, political dissidents and 'lone wolf nuts', certain factions in Congress now want to cut again at the Constitution and Bill of Rights, imposing the burden for the malicious and evil actions of one individual on the free speech and 2nd Amendment of everyone in the national conversation and political discourse.
Now, a decade after all Americans gave up a number of their rights in turn for the auspices of 'security' following 9/11, some of the most 'vitriolic' and supposedly 'angry' voices in politics, along with the others, will be asked to give up their freedom to words and expression so we can again feel a little bit "safer." But it won't work. Bad people and criminals will still get guns; insulating politicians will only advance tyranny's shadowy ascent; and chilling free speech will only bring martial law control over the people closer still.
As Benjamin Franklin wisely warned in the founding era, "Those Who Sacrifice Liberty For Security Deserve Neither (and will obtain neither)."
