Here’s a video taken by a woman at an internal “border” checkpoint – where people are ordered by BDU-clad geeks wearing opaque Tough Guy sunglasses to declare that they are “citizens.”
These checkpoints are often 100 miles inside the United States and the people forced to pass through them have given no reason to suspect they’re “illegals” or have done anything illegal.
As if that mattered.
Armed government geeks detain the woman for declining to answer their questions. For refusing to “help” them in their “investigation.” For declining to give evidence that can and will be used against her.
So much for the Fifth Amendment, eh?
Of course, that went out the window decades ago. Along with the Fourth Amendment, which used to protect us from unreasonable searches. The courts having ruled that it is “reasonable” to stop people at random and compel them to submit to a search/interrogation, absent any reason to suspect they’ve violated any law at all.
And now, this.
Compelled to stop at a “border” checkpoint nowhere near any border. Threatened by armed geeks demanding submission to their interrogations else you will be “detained.”
But far more so, the many favorable – to the armed geeks – comments posted on YouTube, where I found the video.
Americans are becoming instinctively authoritarian.
They are ready for what’s next and inevitable.
