Do you remember me telling you that Orwell said his novel, 1984, was a warning of what was coming, and not what could happen? Well, here you go: warrant-less searches aimed directly at your 2nd Amendment rights:
The NYPD will soon deploy new technology allowing police to detect guns carried by criminals without using the typical pat-down procedure, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Wednesday.
The department just received a machine that reads terahertz — the natural energy emitted by people and inanimate objects — and allows police to view concealed weapons from a distance.
And why not? We surrendered our 4th Amendment rights to the TSA. But you still have your 1st Amendment right, right? Wrong:
Heck, the govt. doesn’t even have to bother doing its own warrant-less searching anymore, it just gets it from its corporate partners.
BTW: do you know what Mussolini called the cooperation between private corporations and government? Here, I’ll remind you:
“Fascism should rightly be called Corporatism as it is a merge of state and corporate power.”
[Note: no one who knows history doubts that American Progressives are related to fascism. They were born of the Fabian Socialists, who were also directly responsible for giving birth to Communism and Fascism in Europe. These ideologies aren’t cousins, their siblings.]
