VIRGINIA BEACH (March 21 2006) - - A state training manual on
terrorism has apparently been written by a
bunch of under-educated bureaucratic 'goons' or 'thugs' while wearing
Nazi hobnailed boots as they stomped on the Constitution.
More incredibly is it is being used to train state employees how to
recognize terrorists. "Now boys here is what you look for...".
You might be a terrorist if....!
Under the definitions of the state's training manual on terrorism,
you're a terrorist if you are:
In any anti-government and militia movements
Are property-rights activists
Are in any racist, separatist and hate groups
Are an environmental and animal rights activist
Are a religious extremist
Are in a street gang
This designation probably won't sit well with many organizations who

two categories based on where the terrorism originates or is
controlled: International and Domestic."
It goes on to say that, "Domestic terrorist acts involve groups or
individuals whose activities are directed at elements of our government
or population without foreign direction or influence."
To paint every freedom-loving citizen living in the Commonwealth of
Virginia with a broad brush that taints every Christian, Catholic or
Jew is wrong, if not unconstitutional.
The manual is an extremely juvenile-written document identifying as
terrorist tools still or video cameras, binoculars, hand-held tape
recorders, maps or charts, sketch pads or notebooks, SCUBA equipment,
In the hands of under-educated state employees the manual could spell
trouble even for journalists with cameras, recorders, and
notebooks. And what about religious entertainer Pat Robertson who
wants to assassinate the head of a foreign government?
The manual is so unbelievable that you have to read it yourself to
fully comprehend that it goes far beyond the federal Patriot act.
Once you have read it, you should contact your legislators and demand
it be withdraw, rewritten, and revised, if to be used at all.
