Secret database obtained by NBC News tracks ‘suspicious’ domestic groups
I publish Polizeros and I’m active in the ANSWER Coalition, thus it’s not bravado or paranoia to assume someone might be making a list and checking it twice about me.
Besides, after all my hard work and dedication, they BETTER be watching me. Oh, 60’s anti-war activists who did a FOIA request decades later were uniformly appalled at how much they’d been monitored, what a waste of money and time for a war that most everyone now says was pointless.
Update: Lefti notes in the comments that the article says
One "incident" included in the database is a large anti-war protest at Hollywood and Vine in Los Angeles last March that included effigies of President Bush and anti-war protest banners.
That protest was organized by ANSWER LA, and I drove the truck that led the march. It is only known to the twisted little brains of the Pentagon why they felt the need to monitor a completely legal protest against their insane war. But such types generally are clueless, seeing Hideous Conspiracies where none exist, then not being able to comprehend that if you invade a country the populace will fight back. Like I said, clueless. Well, clueless and nasty. Apparently they believe the Constitution they are sworn to uphold shouldn’t have all that bothersome stuff about freedom of assembly and speech.
