The government and media’s attempts to brand ordinary American citizens exercising their constitutionally “protected” rights continues with the latest attempt being the claim that writing letters to have elected officials (in this case governors) removed from office is somehow “stirring up” potential “violence.” Never mind that any violence that might ensue from this will probably be perpetrated by the government against the people exercising their rights.

The letters in question supposedly come from an obscure patriot group calling itself Guardians of the Free Republics. The odd thing is, in the AP wire story about this horrendous act, the Guardians of the Free Republics is only mentioned by name once and no link is provided to their very small website, which contains only a form for signing up as a Grand Juror, which, last time I checked, is still perfectly legal.

The message of this AP article is clear: now you’re a “terrorist threat” for exercising your First Amendment right to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
