Anonymous has called for an internet blackout to protest CISPA on Monday May 22. I wholeheartedly support this protest. #blackout #CISPAblackout
This article, “FBI shows up at teenager’s home to ask about his Ron Paul school report” explains what happened in response to this video. In brief, a teenager, Justin Hallman, made a video for his American government class and the FBI showed up as his house. They accosted him about his ideas and tried to turn him into an asset against Anonymous. I am pretty certain that it is not legal to try to turn a minor into an FBI asset. This is not acceptable on any level. It is unconstitutional. Like all Americans, this young man has his right to freedom of speech. Nobody should be accosted by the FBI for their school projects even if the government doesn’t like them. He did not advocate overthrowing the government. The FBI had no legitimate basis for their actions.
Also check out his follow-up video.
On a personal note, I do not support Ron Paul, but I see the wisdom in many of his stances on civil liberties and constitutionality. It is a great loss that he is no longer a US congressman.
This is not about getting traffic for my blog. I am not one of those people. This is about the welfare of our country. My opinion is that this information should be shared in whatever capacity you choose, but it should be shared quickly and effectively.
