Title: This Should Terrify Every American: DOJ Harasses Citizens for Exercising Their First Amendment Rights

The Justice Department has hit the Eagle Forum of Alabama with a voluminous subpoena that violates the organization’s First Amendment rights to speak freely, engage in the political process, and talk to their elected representatives. It’s an intimidation tactic, pure and simple, and shows just how partisan the department has become. This out-of-control behavior should scare every citizen and volunteer organization, no matter where they stand on the political or social spectrum.

Eagle Forum is a very small non-profit in Alabama. It only has one full-time employee and a second, part-time employee. Virtually all of its work on issues of interest to its members is done by volunteers. It is the quintessential, uniquely American grassroots membership organization that French historian Alexis de Tocqueville lauded in Democracy in America.

As the Eagle Forum’s motion to quash the government subpoena says, one of the issues its members have been concerned over is “gender-altering medical treatment to minors” and the “permanent and adverse effects of such medical procedures on those minors.” Those serious, lifelong effects deeply concern many physicians and parents.

Members of the Eagle Forum made their worries known by doing things every American has an absolute right to do: they spoke out, made speeches, organized meetings, talked to other residents and organizations in the state, and contacted their elected state representatives. In other words, they exercised their constitutional rights to engage in “freedom of speech,” to “peaceably assemble,” and “to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” They also exercised their right to associate, recognized by the Supreme Court as implicit under the Fourteenth Amendment.

I wonder how these people are being harassed exactly. Visits from the feds?

I am more more less waiting for the knock at the door at 2 in the morning as the roundups begin under the Biden Holocaust.

They have a plan to round up 8 million Americans and arrest them without trial. Won't work. 20 million will think they are on the list and start shooting at Feds. 1/2 of 1% of 20 million is 100,000 active shooters. I once said in an article about this that someone would get some dynamite and blow up the lines carrying electricity to Washington. That would cause race riots in the Northeast and keep the Feds busy while state governors called up the National Guard. This roundup up stuff is nonsense.
