Police Report: UNR Students for Liberty are domestic terrorists

A report came out last month from the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) to help law enforcement identify dangerous militias seeking to violently attack the government. So far so good, but just who exactly do they find to be the dangerous parties tearing down the government? Well let me summarize a couple of the common identifiers:

  • Anticipation of the economic collapse of the US Government
  • Questioning the legitimacy of the federal government
  • Strong opposition to the collection of federal income taxes and anger towards the Federal Reserve System
  • Sponsoring events focusing on marksmanship
  • Communication through blogs and social networking pushing non-standard versions of current events
  • "Association with 3rd party political groups. It is not unlikely for militia members to display Constitutional Party, Campaign for Liberty, or Libertarian material. These members are usually supporters of formal Presidential Candidate: Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr."
I guess it's official, the UNR Students for Liberty must be a militia bent on the violent overthrow of the government, I mean, we match all of those! Next week we are discussing the legitimacy of government in Barry's awesome Anarcho-capitalism discussion, we've already discussed the uselessness of the Federal Reserve, we are having a shooting event, and we associate with 3rd party political groups and libertarianism. We must be domestic terrorists.

This report says that even public groups who hold open events and can be seen in public doing community service work are the breeding ground for underground terrorist groups. Seriously? People who serve their communities and voted for Ron Paul are the new danger to American society? I know those Ron Paul people are crazy, but I don't think they are blow-up-federal-buildings crazy, it's a different kind of crazy. It's the crazy that believes that by not infringing on the rights of others we can peacefully prosper and coexist. Sure, I may have split an infinitive in the introduction with careless abandon, but I think we play by the rules most of the time. The fact that by supporting ideas outside of the mainstream we are more likely to be classified as domestic terrorists is a scary thought, and hopefully one that will not continue.
