Dissenters To Be Detained As “Enemy Belligerents”?

Anyone paying attention knew this type of legislation was coming. The Patriot Act, the MIAC Report, various leaked DHS documents, and the de facto authority on domestic extremism, the Southern Poverty Law Center, have all turned your First Amendment rights into terrorism. Don't be afraid to see what you see. This is not America anymore. And all you tea party idiots who think you're for liberty and freedom and yet support the Patriot Act and the DHS, NSA, CIA, and all the intrusive violations of the Constitution these entail, be careful what you wish for. Never bestow to your friends power your enemies will one day inherit. You're all terrorists now too.

    Since the establishment media is convinced that tea party members, 9/11 truthers, libertarians, Ron Paul supporters, and basically anyone with a dissenting political opinion is a likely domestic terrorist, they should be celebrating the fact that a new bill would allow the government to detain such people as “enemy belligerents” indefinitely and without trial based on their “suspected activity”.

    The “Enemy Belligerent, Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010,” introduced by Senators John McCain and Joseph Lieberman on Thursday with little fanfare, “sets out a comprehensive policy for the detention, interrogation and trial of suspected enemy belligerents who are believed to have engaged in hostilities against the United States by requiring these individuals to be held in military custody, interrogated for their intelligence value and not provided with a Miranda warning,” writes the Atlantic’s Marc Ambinder.

    The full bill can be read here (PDF).
