U.S. Congress May Label Satellite Stations as Terrorists
The Jerusalem Post reported members of Congress will submit a bill "labeling carriers of incitive satellite stations" as terrorist organizations. The U.S. is targeting satellite firm who rent their space transmission capabilities. Images don't have to reach the U.S. to be offensive.
Should Americans take care in quoting our founding fathers? Thomas Jefferson frequently incited revolution. That involved inciting violence against the King's soldiers and fundraising for the Continental Army. No wonder he wanted free speech.
How do people in foreign lands experience American values? Do they question our commitment to free speech? Is Uncle Sam any different than other American branded global multinationals, paying people a pittance?
Restricting information is necessary in a march to war. Pay attention to Congress as it moves step by step toward the next round of violence.
