Pentagon Says Protests Are Acts of “Low Level Terrorism”

Watch how this works.

First, the government responds to the September 11th attack by passing the Patriot Act, which is purportedly designed to protect us from foreign terrorists. Most of America cheers it on, never realizing that within the act is a broad definition for something categorized as domestic terrorism, or “activities that appear to be intended to intimidate or coerce a civilian population, or to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion.”

Second, they pass the National Defense Authorization Act, which allows them, under the definitions for domestic terrorism set forth by the Patriot Act, to detain someone without trial and forever if they appear to be subverting the newly established status quo.

Third, they declare all federal property, or property being used for political events where Secret Service protection is present, as “events of national significance” through the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act. Undesirable demonstrators operating counter to the official narrative in these areas are herded into court approved free speech zones.

Finally, once the new laws are in place, the government security apparatus begins the re-education of its minions by labeling as “terrorists” anyone who dares speak out or disagrees with their new policy initiatives.

This last step is and has been happening for some time.

Even the very act of assembling with other like minded people to influence policy by petitioning the Government for a redress of grievances can land you on the domestic terrorism list:

A written exam administered by the Pentagon labels “protests” as a form of “low-level terrorism” — enraging civil liberties advocates and activist groups who say it shows blatant disregard of the First Amendment.

The written exam, given as part of Department of Defense employees’ routine training, includes a multiple-choice question that asks:

“Which of the following is an example of low-level terrorism?”

– Attacking the Pentagon

– IEDs

– Hate crimes against racial groups

– Protests

The correct answer, according to the exam, is “Protests.”

“Its part of a pattern of equating dissent and protest with terrorism,” said Ann Brick, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union, which obtained a copy of the question after a Defense Department employee who was taking the test printed the screen on his or her computer terminal.

“It undermines the core constitutional values the Department of Defense is supposed to be defending,” Brick said, referring to the First Amendment right to peaceably assemble.

“That’s illegal,” said George Martin, national co-chairman of United for Peace and Justice. “Protest in terms of legal dissent has to be recognized, especially by the authorities.

“It’s not terrorism or a lack of patriotism. We care enough to be active in our government.”

“It’s the kind of thing that happens when you have large security bureaucracies, which is why they need to be kept in check,” Friedman said. “These things tend to occur in times of panic, like after Sept. 11.

After many years of a slow but steady erosion of our right to speak freely, to assemble peaceably, to bear arms, to be safe and secure in our persons, and to be given due process in a court of law, we begin to see the sinister end game emerge.

Our entire system of government, the one established by our Founding Fathers, is being systematically dismantled.

  1. If you were a group in law enforcement, or authority such as the Gov., how could you not consider protests as anything but a form of terrorism. Why would anyone protest? They are angry with someone or about something! If you are angry, that is when dangerous things happen, such as murder, and other acts. You people just want something to rant about or against, is not what your doing in this article a form of protest also? I am an American citizen, and I like my Government and this country. WE THE PEOPLE…. vote into offices whom we want.

    • Ralph you are what is wrong with this country. The right to protest is protected by the first Amendment. You are a troll and have no idea about liberty and freedom. It is not extremism or a terrorist act.

    • Wow, they got you good. LOL, We the People, NO longer fit into the the Federal Monster, you silly person. By the way, what agency do you work for. Troll…

    • Ralph,
      You are joking, right? Could you possibly be so stupid as to believe what you just wrote? I fell off my chair laughing. Please confirm that you were just being sarcastic and don´t actually believe such nonsense. Protest is what this country is about. Like the government? What in hell is that supposed to mean? Real Americans neither like nor dislike the government – they keep their eyes on it to make sure it is not enfrining on their freedoms.

      • My God…with your lack of intelligence I certainly hope you weren’t in contact with any patients. Then again, how else do we explain the thousands that die every year due to mistakes in medical care?

      • Are you sure you have work at the hospital, or have you lived at the hospital. I worked with mentally ill people for 25 years and this is the type of thinking that I had to put people in a lock up ward. I hope you get better.

    • @ Ralph Barnes:

      Are you suggesting that we shouldn’t have our first amendment either? & you “claim” to be an American!!!!
      As far as our “elect” officials, let me ask you, which had would you rather have me rob you with, my left or right?

      Poor fool….

      • The USA is an oligarchy, The belief that we have any say in our government or what it does is purely an illusion.

      “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.”
      – Mayer Amschel Rothschild

      …as we learned in “The Green Beautiful”: It’s high time to abolish money. ;P

    • So Martin Luther King was just and angry terrorist? I Suppose our founding fathers, and writers of the Constitution were terrorists, too, then?

      • I am sorry to say that a conspiracy theorist is an idiot… believing he or she is alone privileged to the real info….

        • Seriously? “My country right or wrong.” Is that it? Tell me, do you also support “My dad, drunk or sober!”

          You might google “33 conspiracies theories that were true” before you start putting labels on people. I’ll add that, with every one of those “conspiracy theories”, you’ll find people like yourself; either trolls or braindead. But don’t let that stop you……

    • This has got to be Joe Biden writing under an assumed name . That would explain the utter stupidity of the comment .

    • You’re joking right? Here’s something to consider. People who are not allowed to protest or, who are shuffled into free speech zones where they can’t be seen, who who are spied on by federal agencies for no other reason other than they are an organized group, who are stifled by US government entities in every attempt to get valid grievances addressed, a small minority of those people are the ones who might someday decide that their only option to make the government listen is real terrorism

    • Ralph, people are not necessarily “angry” just because they are expressing concern about the way things are being done. That’s your projection onto anyone whom has a different idea than the current administration. I wonder if they had people like you to bully dissenters when Hitler was in power.

    • @Ralph If the election had gone the other way I’m sure all of the democrats would have been as happy as your professing to be? We’re all U.S. Citizens first and foremost! It’s the extremist on both sides that are currently preventing us from compromising and moving toward a better destiny. Without the 1st amendment right to disagree, publicly if need be, we’d cease to be the country we’ve always been. Not quite perfect but still better than any other to date!

    • Ralphy baby, law enforcement exists to serve the people, not the other way around.

      You mean, you don’t KNOW that?

    • Ralph, you are the problem with this country. You don’t like it, you are afraid of, we don’t need it, blah, blah, blah . It is a right, that people have killed for, so who the hell are you, to tell us what our rights are or should be !!

    • So, when Martin Luther King Jr. led protests for civil rights, that was “low level terrorism?” When young folks in the 1960s and 70s protested against the Vietnam War, that was “low level terorrism?” Are you insane? Protest might not be particularly popular, and not all people are going to agree with the protestors’ goals, but protest is a long and time-honored tradition, a civil RIGHT, and if the circumstances are bad enough it is a DUTY! Our very NATION was founded because of protest. Are you one of those who would call the founders “terrorists?”

  2. When is this War on Terror projected to end? I haven’t heard the exit strategy or end date predicted. Is it just going to end naturally after we all become submissive slaves? After the constitution is forgotten, after the true meaning to the word freedom is forgotten, is that when it is supposed to end?

  3. The only terrorists in this country is the current power structure — our executive, our judiciary, our legislative, Wall Street, the Banksters, the military-industrial complex and their enforcement arms. Ignoring these facts will only deliver more false-flags on us as they try to lock down their power.

  4. Ralph Barnes you must be an idiot if you like your government and you must be a brain dead, MK Ultra mind control victim as well. People like you are easily manipulated by the elite probably because you do not know any better. By the way, the presidential voting polls are all a shame, we the people do not pick who goes into office in Washington D.C. the Zionist Jews who are the ones pulling all the strings behind the scenes, the Zionist Jews are the puppet masters. G

  5. Ralph, Google-Zionist Jews, start researching this group of people then you will know who is picking and choosing the top politicians in the U.S., what the Zionist Jews agendas are, etc, etc, etc. Ralph you need too do much more research because you are obviously clueless who is really calling all the shots in the United States these days. Good luck on your crusade finding out of the truth behind the obvious lie that is called reality in the U.S.

    • your right Zionist Jews or what I like to call them are Ashkenazi Khazars Jews are the most bigoted Jews on the planet, and most of them are not even true Jews, their false Jews or Talmudic jews.

  6. The train just keeps rolling down the track at full speed and adding more cars as it does. There’s no stopping it at this point and they know it. It’s everyone for themselves. Make peace with your Creator and do what you have to do.

  7. Ralph Barnes…. so no protesting eh? no peaceful protests? hmmm pretty strange….an Amerikan citizen who thinks a protest is and act of Terrorism? whoa…by the way… Wall St. stock trades are not taxed… at all… hmm maybe the millions of stock computer trades every day – even taxed at .1% would probably pay off the 16 triliion dollar debt in a short while…. that is one of my protest points…so label me a terrorist? 5 5 5 whoa… yes we vote in…. somebody…. let’s see how the next 4 years turn out for the “American Sheople”… and I happen to be a yank myself…let’s see how it goes…

  8. Structure is strategy in “slow motion”. This type of language and definition will become more agressive as time goes on and the citizens of the USA will accept such language and thinking as “normal”. Then, in time, when thier rights and freedoms are controlled and limited and everyday living becomes a condition of Capitalism, will citizens of the USA “fight like hell” for Freedom of Speech and Democracy.

  9. they better be careful, because their comments are treasonous and they will be tried by a civilian courts and hung from hanging poles for their sedition. watch out you generals for the comments you are making are illegal.

  10. The US gov would like us all to be Ralphs and by the time they finish with their weasels words and new laws many will be… sadly

  11. Ralph Barnes is exactly what is wrong with America. Quit watching TV Barnes, it’s brainwashing you. The greatness of our country is only because of our Constitution and if we as a people let it erode away, then we deserve to live in a shit country. And, btw, there is nowhere else to go.

  12. “Oh dear, I’m feeling political today. It’s just that it’s dawned on me that ‘zero tolerance’ only seems to mean putting extra police in poor, run-down areas, and not in the Stock Exchange.”
    – Terry Pratchett

  13. They ARE doing these things and doing them fast. We cannot prove elections are valid, we do not elect the president (the electoral college does), They are ignoring our demands to stop, Congress is answerable only to itself, There is a movement to remove term limits for the president and the requirement to be natural born US citizen, there is a push by the UN to disarm all nations. ALL of these things are happening and easily found on the internet. We the people, have not held our leaders responsible for their actions and now we WILL pay the price for that, and as a result we are the ones that have condemned ourselves to some kind of future revolution and hardship needed to throw off the yoke of oppression once again.

  14. Ralph,

    Apparently you never heard of “peaceable protest”.

    Some sheeple never protest anything, so they don’t give a damn about the rights of people to address the government that we value so much.

    Pathetic is what it is.

    By the way, thanks for the article MF Dover. It will be part of my new creation.
