N.D.A.A. & S.O.P.A. Rant Transcript
December 31st 2011.
How did America start the New Year? Most of you were probably getting high or drunk and blowing the fat kid at the party. I got lucky, that’s all I’m saying. Anyway, maybe you don’t know what Barack Obama was doing while the fireworks were exploding and everyone was too drunk to notice. He was signing the N.D.A.A. into law.
The N.D.A.A., if you don’t know what that stands for than I’ll tell you. It stands for Nationwide Dictatorship, Authoritarianism, and Autocracy… No I think it stands for, Nazi Dick up my Aching Asshole… Oh, that’s right, they call it the “National Defense Authorization Act” for the fiscal year 2012.
This N.D.A.A. makes the NSA’s illegal wire-tapping and the Patriot Act look like kid stuff. The National Defense Authorization Act gives the president the authority to indefinitely detain you until “hostilities” are over, which could be ten or twenty years. That’s right: no lawyer, no trial of peers and no Habeas Corpus. It also extends the power of local law enforcement to the military. No more Posse Commutates.
This bill declares America a “battleground” and would make American Citizens who defy their government “Enemy Combatants” (Stalin used words like Enemy Combatant and Homeland as well, see Naomi Wolf for more on that). Now, if you don’t know what the fuck America does to “Enemy Combatants” then look up the term Rendition. Government agents go out of their way to brutalize their enemies. Perhaps you could simply ask Lynndie England, the happy go lucky bitch over at Abu Ghraib.
In case you think you’ve got nothing to hide so you have nothing to fear well think again. Terrorist acts include owning guns or weather proofed ammunition and having more than 7 days worth of food in your home. It’s even as ballsy to state that, you are a terrorist suspect if you’re missing fingers on your hands. You know who is missing fingers on their hands? Iraqi war veterans. Personally I’ve got one finger on my hand that isn’t missing and I’m going to be showing it off until this law is repealed. That’s my middle finger.
Tyranny can happen in America; there is precedence for it. In 1798 the “Alien and Sedition” acts were passed. These were four laws that made it illegal to criticize the government and even made it possible to revoke your citizenship. In 1942 tyranny presented itself as the internment of Japanese Americans. They had no rights or trial, they just looked a little too Japanese for our wartime sensibilities. By the way, the “Alien Enemies Act,” the one that made internment possible, is still around today. So don’t walk around looking a little too Middle Eastern, it may present a problem for you.
Here’s an interesting one. In 1950 the “Internal Security Act” went past a presidential veto. It was also known as the Subversive Activities Control Act. You see, that language is tricky. Subversive means something completely different to someone like me. I’ve had my hand inside another human being, so “subversive” is a slippery slope. I once ate an entire box of Coricidin, got butt-naked and accosted a pizza boy while shitting down my leg. So what did they mean by subversive? Well you probably guessed it. COMMUNISTS.
This bill apparently was also known as the Emergency Detention act. It gave the president the authority to detain anyone on suspicion of espionage or fascist ties or pony fucking or whatever. If you violated the law you could even lose your citizenship.
This happened in 1950, ladies and gentlemen. I have pretty much described what is happening right now in 2012 with the N.D.A.A. that was passed into law on New Years Eve. Just swap out words like communists and detention with terrorist and indefinite detention.
What you need to know about the Internal Security Act, President Truman called it “the greatest danger to freedom of speech, press, and assembly since the Alien and Sedition acts of 1798.” He called it a “mockery of the Bill of Rights” and a “long step toward totalitarianism”. The Supreme Court ruled the detention of citizens unconstitutional and that provision was repealed.
Here’s the crazy part. If I know about the Internal Security Act then certainly Barack Obama knows about it. I just looked it up, Obama taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago for twelve years. For sure he knows about the Supreme Court verdict of 1950.
Of course he also said he wasn’t going to sign this thing into law and he did anyway. In fact he’s promised a lot of things. Remember when he was campaigning? He said he was going to shut down Guantanamo Bay. Well he didn’t shut it down and now he can send you there without even a formal charge. Don’t worry; you’ll be eligible for a status review every three years.
Don’t you worry your innocent little heads because there was a signing statement along with the passage of the bill:
“I want to clarify that my Administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens. [...] My Administration will interpret section 1021 in a manner that ensures that any detention it authorizes complies with the Constitution, the laws of war, and all other applicable law. [...] As my Administration has made clear, the only responsible way to combat the threat al-Qa’ida poses is to remain relentlessly practical, guided by the factual and legal complexities of each case and the relative strengths and weaknesses of each system.”
This bill simply gives the executive branch the authority to indefinitely detain American citizens but that doesn’t mean he’ll use it. The next administration will most likely be the ones to lock you up. Well this is unacceptable and I’m mad as hell. It’s not just me; the ACLU is on our side. Here’s what they said”
“The statute contains a sweeping worldwide indefinite detention provision… [without] temporal or geographic limitations, and can be used by this and future presidents to militarily detain people captured far from any battlefield.” The ACLU furthermore commented that “While President Obama issued a signing statement saying he had ‘serious reservations’ about the provisions, the statement only applies to how his administration would use the authorities granted by the NDAA,” and maintains that “the breadth of the NDAA’s detention authority violates international law because it is not limited to people captured in the context of an actual armed conflict as required by the laws of war.”
This president does not care about the constitution or the people. Under his prudent administration, the spending cap on corporate campaign financing was lifted. The business class claimed that money equals free speech, which means that corporations have a lot more free speech than you. He’s not looking out for our interests and that’s exactly why S.O.P.A. is probably going to pass next.
In a couple of weeks there’s going to be a vote on S.O.P.A. or the “Stop Online Piracy Act” that gives the government the right to delete entire websites for posting copy written content. This includes links and videos with songs in the background. If you are found guilty then you will be considered a felon and will be imprisoned and fined, possibly in the millions. I mean, why not make a profit with the corporate censorship bill, right?
If I were you I wouldn’t be posting links to the works of Thomas Paine or Henry David Thoreau or Jefferson or Franklin because those have strong anti-government rhetoric in them and you could be considered a terrorist. The military will be there to pick you up and whisk you away to wherever they store felons and terrorists for however long they do it for.
In my opinion, Barrack Hussein Obama has committed high treason and should be indicted. It’s just too bad we don’t believe in due process anymore. Looks like he’ll walk.
Post Script and warning:
To the apathetic mush minded tits who scoffed at you for informing them and who fill every conversation with football statistics, you’ve cost us too much. We can’t afford you anymore. Your apathy was a luxury and we are at zero hour. Open your eyes before they are pried open by the over reaching hand of government. You were laughing but you’ll stop laughing when your children are felons, your wife disappears for over shopping and your friends go missing for speaking their minds.
Inform everyone you can, don’t let your boss tell you to keep quite. Don’t let social pressures soften your rhetoric. If we are going to beat this with non-violence than the time is now! Wake up everyone you know. If America doesn’t wake up right now we are in very real and very grave danger. Tell’em, wake up stupid or you’re fucked.

Four separate laws constituted what is commonly referred to as the “Alien and Sedition Acts”
The Naturalization Act (officially An act supplementary to, and to amend the act to establish a uniform rule of naturalization; and to repeal the act heretofore passed on that subject; ch. 54, 1 Stat. 566) repealed and replaced the Naturalization Act of 1795 to extend the duration of residence required for aliens to become citizens of the United States from five years to fourteen years.
The Alien Act (officially An Act Concerning Aliens; ch. 58, 1 Stat. 570) authorized the president to deport any resident alien considered “dangerous to the peace and safety of the United States.” It was activated June 25, 1798, with a two year expiration date.
The Alien Enemies Act (officially An Act Respecting Alien Enemies; ch. 66, 1 Stat. 577) authorized the president to apprehend and deport resident aliens if their home countries were at war with the United States of America. Enacted July 6, 1798, and providing no sunset provision, the act remains intact today as 50 U.S.C. §§ 21–24. At the time, war was considered likely between the U.S. and France.
The Sedition Act (officially An Act in Addition to the Act Entitled “An Act for the Punishment of Certain Crimes against the United States”; ch. 74, 1 Stat. 596) made it a crime to publish “false, scandalous, and malicious writing” against the government or certain officials. It was enacted July 14, 1798, with an expiration date of March 3, 1801 (the day before Adams’ presidential term was to end).
