2012 US Terrorist Identification Chart by gonzoville 2012 US Terrorist Identification Chart by gonzoville
(NOTE: I've updated the chart in another design to take events of 18-19 December into account: [link])

The idea for this design actually woke me up. I flashed on the old "enemy identification charts" that were used in WW1 and WW2. Clearly the CIA, NSA and DHS will need something similar in 2012 with NDAA and all these wonderful new laws.

So this design starts with the ironic - that any normal person can be considered a terrorist. As you scan down it goes to the sardonic, then radical, then seditious, and finally ending with the absurd (with a shout out to the "Aquapation" on Lake Merritt). And even some of the absurd isn't that absurd - unfortunately.

Truth is, people like Paul Revere and Ben Franklin would be considered terrorists by the new standards. And the British considered the Colonial soldiers to be terrorists in 1776 because of their tactics - much as our current regime seems to view anyone with a dissenting view.

I tried to keep enough humor (Charlie Sheen ... winning!) in this to make it enjoyable and to balance the grim reality of what's happening.

Half of this was funny and then it got a little out of control.

Russia, China, and even leftist countries these days are far to paranoid.

This picture in todays context (which there are Many & ALL fitting) couldn't be more of a TRUE representation of what we've allowed these Corrupt people (that in NO way represent the American people) to expand the Definition of a Terrorist/Domestic Terrorist as it was defined in Sec.802 of the "Un-Patriotic Act" in which we were Propagated & Lied to on such a Grand Scale that could only make Joseph Goebbels so very proud! That being of what the average person would consider someone Truly a Terrorist, I pretty much the Majority by far would agree on & that's what they used to convince us, by the Definition is to broad & vague, that has allowed it's meaning to expand! Begs the phrase "We're ALL Terrorist Now"! Anyways, Great job!

Pretty much sums it up. If you’re breathing, chances are, you’re a terrorist!

The terrorists have won. It's that simple. They declared war on us on 9/11, and they have won the war. There is no security governed through scrutiny. We have lost.

And here is my salute to the government for letting this happen: :iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz::iconfingerplz:
