House Passes “Terrorism”
Act Against Animal Activists

Above is a link to an article about the passage of a bill on Monday that makes animal rights activists “terrorists” in certain instances, even when they are engaged in peaceful actions.

This is alarming because the US now has the Military Commissions Act that gives whoever is president the right to hold in prison without recourse any “enemy” (and certainly in this administration’s mind a “terrorist,” even an animal rights “terrorist” is an enemy).  Since there will be no records, no report, no accountability at all, these animal rightist, or anyone considered an enemy, can be tortured and killed without their friends or family ever knowing what happened to them.

Once more I think of these words:

They came for the Communists (or the animal rights activists), but I was not a Communist (animal rights activist), so I said nothing.

Then they came for the Social Democrats, but I was not a Social Democrat, so I said nothing.

They came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew, so I said nothing.

They came for the Catholics, but I was not a Catholic, so I said nothing.

Then they came for me, but no one was left to speak for me.
