Well, I knew this was coming.. For according to this article that I just came across today, from the "Tech Dirt" website, at www.techdirt.com, it appears that the criminal Canadian federal government is indeed about to push for the destruction of Canadian freedoms at home... This article is entitled: "Canadian And American Politicians Use Ottawa Shootings As Excuses To Demand More Surveillance, Greater Policing Powers", and I have it in its entirety for everyone to see for themselves right here... I have my own thoughts and comments to follow:
Canadian And American Politicians Use Ottawa Shootings As Excuses To Demand More Surveillance, Greater Policing Powers
from the more-arrests dept
“Our laws and police powers need to be strengthened in the area of surveillance, detention and arrest,” the Prime Minister told the House of Commons. “They need to be much strengthened. I assure members that work which is already under way will be expedited.”So, not only will they expand the police and surveillance state, but they'll do it in an "expedited" fashion as a kneejerk response to one guy shooting up the Parliament. That seems like a recipe for bad decision making and the erosion of the rights of the public.
Oh, and some other Canadian politicians are already looking for ways to use this as an excuse to attack free speech online, because obviously that's the real problem here:
There is frustration in government, and among law enforcement agencies, that the authorities can’t detain or arrest people who express sympathy for atrocities committed overseas and who may pose a threat to public safety, one Conservative MP said. “Do we need new offences? If so which?”Down here in the US, at least it's not the President saying this kind of crap, just well-known terrorist appeaser Rep. Peter King who has declared that the Ottawa shootings mean that the US needs to start spying on all the Muslims to find out which ones are radicalized. I wonder how King would react to someone saying that, based on that, we should also spy on "all the Irish to find out which ones are radicalized." Or, you know, perhaps he wouldn't like that so much, seeing as he has a rather long history supporting Irish terrorists, and such surveillance might turn up something he wouldn't like.
Sources suggest the government is likely to bring in new hate speech legislation that would make it illegal to claim terrorist acts are justified online.
King, by the way, also attacks the "morons" at the NY Times and the ACLU for daring to push back against the NYPD's program of spying on Muslims. That now disbanded program, by the way, cost a ton and generated exactly zero leads. And yet, suddenly King thinks bringing it back is the answer?
This, unfortunately, is the ridiculous cycle of kneejerk defenders of the police and surveillance state. Privileged folks, in power, who use any excuse whatsoever to push for ever increasing power, and ever fewer rights by the public. It's a culture of control, paranoia and fear. These people aren't leaders, they're cowards in leadership positions.
NTS Notes: Here we go.... These criminals are using this Ottawa false flag operation as indeed a means of taking away the freedoms of Canadian citizens just like what is happening in the United States right now.. It is sickening, and I had hoped that most Canadians are too smart to fall for this criminal act... It appears I could be wrong...
Yes, the propaganda of fear is indeed a powerful weapon and can be used by nefarious individuals to destroy a peaceful society, and these criminals that run our governments are the masters at this game... The problem is of course that most dumb ass Canuckleheads will indeed fall for this trap, and will surrender their freedoms for what the criminals claim is "more security"... However, many just do not get it... There was a famous saying that goes something like this: "If a society ever surrenders its freedom for security, the people will wake up one day with neither freedom nor security". This statement is very true and we have already witnessed its consequences in the United States with the passage of the fraud Patriot Acts... It appears now that Canada is about to fall for the same trap here as well....
Let this be a warning for all Canadians... The criminals now running our government are now launching on a campaign to strip every Canadian citizen of their freedoms for the illusion (and yes, it is an illusion) of "security"... We here in Canada are heading towards a time when our nation will no longer be free but one of despotism where every citizen is under constant surveillance and subject to horrific policing powers. This is exactly what is happening in the United States and we as Canadians are doomed to repeat it right here at home!
Wake up, everyone!
