Action alert from Jeralyn at Talk Left:
Contact your Senators today and urge them to refuse to pass the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007. As I wrote a month ago, it’s a thought crimes bill aimed at preventing domestic terrorism by judging the thoughts, including those expressed on the Internet, of American citizens.
This is really a piece of work from a legislative point of view I cannot really understand how it passed with such a huge margin in the house. This is a very dangerous bill just on precedent and should be rejected completely. It is in direct conflict with both the first and fourth amendments. Hop over to Talk Left and see for yourself.
