British pair arrested in U.S. on terror charges over Twitter jokes

Let it be known that every tweet, every email, every Facebook post, every blog post, and every text message you send is actively monitored by Federal Agents.

The Daily Mail reports:

Two British tourists were barred from entering America after joking on Twitter that they were going to ‘destroy America’ and ‘dig up Marilyn Monroe’.

Leigh Van Bryan, 26, was handcuffed and kept under armed guard in a cell with Mexican drug dealers for 12 hours after landing in Los Angeles with pal Emily Bunting.

The Department of Homeland Security flagged him as a potential threat when he posted an excited tweet to his pals about his forthcoming trip to Hollywood which read: ‘Free this week, for quick gossip/prep before I go and destroy America?’

In this case, a couple who had tweeted that they were going to “destroy” America on their trip (British slang for ‘party’) was arrested and thrown into a cell with Mexican drug dealers overnight upon their arrival into LAX.

The only possible way the Feds could have known who even posted that tweet was for them to be monitoring every single innocuous message that comes out of Twitter.  While these arrests are outrageous in their own right, the real outrage comes from the fact that every single electronic message you send is actively monitored by the criminal Federal government.

Only a brain dead idiot would ever assume that real terrorists would broadcast their intentions over twitter just prior to their international departures.  This surveillance grid is not designed to catch real terrorists.  It is designed to make you afraid of the State.

Clearly this was a coordinated hit by the Feds to drive this point home.  They do not want you dissenting.  They do not want you sharing information with your friends.  They do not want you advocating freedom.  They do not want you advocating constitutional rights.  They want you scared, silent, and submissive.

Be a good slave.  Shut your mouth.
