a kitten's adventure in tinfoil cattery
so look, i don’t mean to be a little preachy-paws or anything, but, um, if you guys are falling for the “once they get this up and running it will only be used against terrorists” schtick i kinda gotta ask: “what world have you been watching?”
cuz, call me mr cynical paws, but this sure does seem like a deliberate program to sidestep the limits of missouri v biden and build the infrastructure for mass surveillance and suppression.
Those given the money from the grants fund are expected to develop prevention programming at the community level that would stop “targeted violence and terrorism,” as well as come up with innovative prevention ideas, and “identify prevention best practices that can be replicated in communities nationwide.”
and, um, i think maybe calling this an “arts” program with impact on health, education, food, income security, and “cultural affairs” is kind of a big fricking hint on where this is going and what kind of dissent it’s probably going to wind up focused on.
and i think maybe you’re probably not going to like it, because, uh, they have sorta abused this stuff in the past.
but don’t lose hope guys! because we know what’s what, and they can never take that away from us!
