Man Charged With Terrorism For Criticizing School Security
By Janet Levy
A 51-year-old disabled grandfather in Iowa was sent to jail with a felony charge of terrorism for merely expressing concern to his physical therapist about the lack of security at his granddaughter’s school. He worried out loud that anyone could access the school and harm the children.
Brian Davis has colon cancer, a bad back and cannot walk without a cane. He does NOT have a criminal background and does NOT even own a gun.
When police were called to the scene by the therapist, they whitewashed their strong arm, free speech-squelching tactics with the apocryphal statement, “When it comes to children’s safety, we can’t take any chances.”
Is that so? Tell that to the many threatened women who clamor for police assistance and are told, “There’s nothing we can do UNTIL he acts on the threat.”
Welcome to the Brave New World in which YOU are a terrorist for expressing your concerns, for installing a “gun-friendly” screen saver, for flying an American flag or publically lauding the Bill of Rights. Meanwhile, you are free to burn or urinate on the flag, say “Death to America and Death to Christians and Jews,” use the women’s bathroom if you’re a male but “feel” like a female, occupy and desecrate our nation’s public parks for months, loiter and panhandle, etc.
All this while the terrorists roam free and “moderate” Muslim Brotherhood operatives populate the highest levels of our national security apparatus!
Read the article for yourself:
History has shown us that one of the most dangerous things an individual can have in a totalitarian state is an opinion. In Hitler’s German, Mao’s China, or Stalin’s Soviet Union, it was always the same – have an opinion, go to jail.
What’s completely discouraging is that America is starting to be the same kind of state. People who are using their First Amendment free speech rights to raise important issues are increasingly finding themselves carted off to jail, or running the risk that their children will be wrenched from their arms and placed into the state system. A New Jersey mother discovered that when she was arrested after reading the Constitution at a public meeting; and a New Jersey father discovered it when he was interrogated and police threatened to remove his children after he posted a picture of his glowingly proud son with a hunting rifle. As too many people are discovering,speech in America is free only if you carry your “Progressive” card.
Now, a disabled grandfather in Centerville, Iowa has made the same terrible discovery — in today’s American, if you have an opinion, you can go to jail. Brian Davis is currently languishing in Appanoose County Jail, charged with felony threat of terrorism. Did he call a school and threaten to blow it up? No. Was he caught with bomb-making equipment in his garage? No. Did he call various American universities and try to have a “blow-out” reunion of all the former 1960s Leftist terrorists (some of whom participated in murder) who are now faculty members teaching our children? No.
