Obama: Continually proving himself as bad for civil rights as George W. Bush ever was.
Seizing private communications facilities so that they are silenced? Really?
This is unconstitutional, anti-American, police-state bullshit. The type I’ve come to expect from Obama & Bush.
But oh. It’s to make us safer from a terrorist attack, right? So it’s okay, then. Just like the internet kill switch is okay! When Iran/Libya/Egypt seize communcations, it’s bad. When we do it, it’s good. America, fuck yeah.
And don’t say this was already law, or the executive order would have not been needed. If someplace is communicating something that actually incites violence, there are already laws in place to deal with that.
