‘Fusion Centers’ Expand Criteria to Identify Militia Members
Do you like Ron Paul or oppose abortion? You may be a member of a militia, according to a new report by a government information collection agency.

By Joshua Rhett Miller   (FOX NEWS)

Homeland security evidently set up something called “fusion centers” to identify possible domestic terrorist threats or groups during the Bush Administration.  They are still active, and according to Secretary Janet Napolitano,

…the reason we now have fusion centers, which is a relatively new concept, is because we did not have the capacity as a country to connect the dots on isolated bits of intelligence prior to 9/11…”

Sounds great doesn’t it?  Makes you feel all safe and comfy?  But, don’t be deceived, the “centers” are watching all of us “dissenters” – that is people whose views are “different” from the approved views.   If you voted for a third-party candidate, are opposed to abortion, opposed to gun control, are a Libertarian, or possess “subversive” literature, believe that this country will be part of a North American Union and will be using a money called the Amero you might be a “domestic” terrorist.

In the State of Missouri, a center called “The Modern Militia Movement” introduced a report for policemen identifying possible signs of a domestic terrorist, including some of the above.

Bob McCarty, a St. Louis resident who blogged about the MIAC report, said he’s afraid he may be targeted, since he’s previously sold Ron Paul-related merchandise.

Maybe Missouri is just a test bed for squelching political thought.”

But it’s not just Missouri.

ACLU officials blasted a Texas fusion center last month for distributing a “Prevention Awareness Bulletin” that called on law enforcement officers to report activities of local lobbying groups, Muslim civil rights organizations and anti-war protest groups.
