Once again, the terrorists are threatening America, this time in the guise of a 16-year-old boy expressing his support for Ron Paul, that dastardly extremist who’s so violent that he advocates nonviolence.
Created as a project for his American Government class, the 16-year-old, Justin Hallman, created a video supporting Paul’s campaign which details how the United States is turning into a police state.
“The video touches on a number of issues,” writes Paul Joseph Watson, “including the National Defense Authorization Act, evidence suggesting the Republican caucus in Maine was fixed to disenfranchise Ron Paul, the hacktivist group Anonymous, military drills taking place in American cities, as well as eviscerations of the right to free speech.”
In response, Hallman was visited by a duo of FBI agents. The agents visited Hallman’s house, leaving their card after the teenager refused to answer them at the door. When his mother called the number listed on the card, she was told by the agents, “We need to talk to your son.”
The two FBI agents returned to the house and began to talk to Hallman about his interests and hobbies, a tactic Hallman saw as the FBI agents attempting to gain his trust.
The FBI agents then attempted to recruit Hallman to spy on Anonymous. “They wanted me to be an informant, to possibly put my life in danger, to help them arrest and gain intel on occupy protesters and hackers,” he writes.
The agents then began to question Hallman about his support for Ron Paul’s presidential campaign as well as a conversation he had conducted with his teacher about the Illuminati secret society.
“They also asked me why I had talked to my teacher about the Illuminati,” writes Hallman. “I told them it was just harmless talk about the 1776 Illuminati that formed from the enlightenment era. I said my teacher said they are/were terrorists and not to talk about them (this caused the FBI agents to look puzzled and they changed the subject very fast to Anonymous). In the end they finally left for an “important meeting.”
Hallman is now concerned for future employment opportunities, commenting, “My record (is) forever scarred with the truth that the FBI questioned me. When getting a job they will see that, when getting a passport they will see that, when going to college they will see that.”
For some time now, the government has been demonizing Paul supporters, as well as libertarians and conservatives.
In 2009, the infamous report titled “The Modern Militia Movement” from the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) was leaked. The report lists “supporters of presidential candidates Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr as ‘militia’ influenced terrorists and instructs the Missouri police to be on the lookout for supporters displaying bumper stickers and other paraphernalia associated with the Constitutional, Campaign for Liberty, and Libertarian parties.”
In July, a study by the Department of Homeland Security titled “Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States, 1970-2008,” mentions that those who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority” or are “reverent of individual liberty” are “extreme right-wing” terrorists.
Even further back, during the Clinton administration, the Phoenix-FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force released a flier that lists “’defenders’ of US Constitution against federal government and UN” as right-wing extremists.
No wonder politicians are constantly breaking their oath to defend the Constitution, otherwise they’d be listed as terrorists.
