Snitch or suffer

The U.S. Department of Justice (sic) is arguing that nobody has a right to refuse to snitch. That is, should you just say no when offered the “opportunity” to become the fedgov’s patsy, TPTB are free to punish you by means fair or foul to coerce and terrify you into doing their bidding. First Amendment does not apply. Nor any other amendment, for that matter.

So they argue and so (in today’s statist legal climate) they may prevail.

Another brick in the wall.

Another brick we’ll pull down on their evil, power-mad heads one day in the not too distant future.

The Simple Justice blog has some fine indignant words on the matter.

    “to coerce and terrify you”

    To protect us from the terrorists, of course.

    Wow! There is some serious discussion on that site. So many blogs, so little time.

    Only way I see it is just to keep your mouth shut. “I know nothing”. Funny how Lerner, and others… seem to have no problem in telling lies of claiming the fifth. Oh! Wait! I forgot! She and the rest are above the law…. Not that there really is any law…..Bush with the patriot act and Obammy with his pen and phone are totally innocent….

    Right you are Ms. Wolfe, it will not be long. You can sense it in the air. Defiance of the bastards. Just resistance to tyranny is only a matter of time. No matter the appearance of legitimacy, they have none. A great awakening to that truth, of their lawlessness and arrogance is under way. They can’t stop it. There is not enough of them. They posses no moral imperative. They only have the use of force and threat of violence to subject people to their tyranny.
    That will not survive a plurality of people whom have had enough.

    “When they “declined to act as informants” for the FBI and to “spy on their own American Muslim communities and other innocent people,” they faced retaliation from the FBI and subsequently discovered they were on the No Fly List.”

    Seriously? This is the threat the FBI is using? People should be laughing at this, not filing lawsuits (AKA fighting on the enemy’s chosen ground).

    The way to handle it, if caught in their snares, is to agree to be a snitch to get out of their clutches – then to publicize everything that happened including the promise to be a snitch (and to explain it was a lie), then go to war when they come after you the next time. It’s a choice to allow someone to arrest and threaten you. YOUR choice.

    [In an outrageously bold response, the government asserted its authority to be fat and lazy: “there is no constitutional right not to ‘snitch.’”]

    This is correct. There are no rights at all. Stop using the language of slaves. Stop letting government decide what you can and cannot do.
